Infinity has already claimed over half the retail space of Skylanders at my local Wal-Mart, with a number of Skylanders sets/figures bumped to the cheapie-bin with red tags. Just wait until they get some Marvel and Star Wars content out.
Game over for Skylanders' generic squad of nobodies.
This space for rent. Contact: 1-800-IPostedSomethingStupidorFunny for further information.
Watching some of that stuff reminds me of some of the truly great controller throwing moments in my past. I could probably never play anything like that stupid Blue Room thing. It's like portal without the fun and against a blue backdrop that keeps you from making out details or being able to utilize depth perception.
Then they have flippy platformers and a whole bunch of other infuriating shit... I think my whole console would go out the window.
But it's nice to see this amount of content coming right out of the gates. it doesn't look as good as I would have thought though; very low poly and craptastic textures. They must have been showing the Wii version or something.
Disney Infinity holds the attention of my 5 year old at least twice as well as Skylanders did. Plus the fun he has doing random stuff in a toy box setting is really a joy to behold. Minecraft meet Skylanders with recognizable characters = brilliant. Yeah, there are rough edges. Yeah, it could look better. But in the end none of that matters much.
