Well, it’s NOT a Skylanders game, but I think it is a game my kids might enjoy. The creators of the original Skylanders game (Toys For Bob) are back to bring you this HD remaster of an old favorite franchise. If you are a fan of Skylanders and Spyro and you never played these old platforming games, you might like them as well. Assuming another Skylanders game doesn’t get announced for this year, we will most likely give this new remastered Spyro trilogy a long look. For now, enjoy this trailer from Gamespot.com and get ready for its release this September.
Today I show off the best game, I’ve never heard anyone talk about. Children of Zodiarcs is a strategy RPG with collectible cards and craftable dice. It’s from developer Cardboard Utopia and published by Square Enix Collective. I discovered and bought this game during a recent PSN sale. It has been available since July 18th, 2017. If I had heard of it, it would have been a day one purchase. It reminds me a lot of the old Final Fantasy Tactics, but it has fused customizable card decks and dice into a strategy RPG. It’s a unique mix that I am loving so far, and I only wish more fans of strategy RPGs and card and dice games knew about this game. Check out this video as I try to explain this unique game to my boys!
Children of Zodiarcs is available on the PS4 and Steam.

I know many of you have been waiting for Season 2 of Skylanders Academy. Well the wait is almost over. Starting on October 6th you’ll be able to stream all of the new episodes for season 2. This year the story will focus more on the maturing of Spyro as a leader and why he has a special relationship with Master Eon. We are also promised to see some new characters introduced into the series. Some we know about, while others will be left a mystery. Felicia Day from “The Guild” fame as well as one of the founders of Geek and Sundry will be the voice of Cynder and should play a major role in Spyro’s story line. We also know that Sprocket and Ninjini will make appearances and will both be voiced by Grey Griffin. Until today we didn’t know who the new evil villain would be. But thanks to the new Season 2 trailer, we now know that it will be the Dragon King himself: Malefor. Of course, maybe it’s someone else who just uses Malefor but based on the trailer we know that Malefor will definitely make an appearance. If you want to read more about the production of Skylanders Academy, then check out this interview with one of the shows creators Eric Rogers as he talks about the series and what to expect in season 2 on collider.com. Also, check out the trailer below which was just released today by the official Skylanders YouTube channel.

If you haven’t fired up your Battlecast app in a while you may want to take the time to do so soon. When you do, you’ll receive a message notifying you that the digital game will end on September 1, 2017. That’s when Activision will pull the plug on their Battlecast servers effectively ending the digital version of the game. It sounds like this won’t just end the ability to play online but that it will actually prevent the game from working so you won’t even have the ability to play your single player campaign matches either. We’ll see, but that might be the first game I’ve owned digitally that has become completely useless after a server shut down. Most games allow you to continue the single player game even if you can’t download the game anymore.
It looks like Target has acquired the early scoop on the latest to be released Skylanders Tide Pool and Blaster-Tron. Rumor has it that these two figures will get a week or two head start at Target before appearing on other local retailer shelves like Best Buy and Toys R Us. I for one am glad, since I’m constantly finding new Skylanders on store shelves at Target and then having them be date restricted at the register. That is definitely not the case this time as I was able purchase both of the characters at my local Target this past weekend. So if you are in the need of a couple more Imaginators make sure to check your local stores or order from their website.Share this article!

Those looking for the new Wave 4 Single Sensei Packs for Skylanders Imaginators may want to check your local Toys R US. Grave Clobber, Hard Boiled Flare Wolf, Egg Bomber Air Strike and Pain-Yatta are now available. To see if they are in stock at your local Toys R Us, check the links on our Character Pages. Like with every wave, the new characters start to show up at Toys R Us weeks before they hit other retailers. So if you would rather pick them up from somewhere cheaper like Amazon or Best Buy, then keep checking those Character Pages, as I will activate links to other retailers as soon as I find out that they are available. If you find them online elsewhere and I don’t have a link up yet, then add a comment so I will know to get those added. Some of you may have previously bought Pain-Yatta with the Magic Creation Crystal, however if you were holding out for ONLY the character he is now available. We are waiting on one more character to come out in Wave 4 and that is Wild Storm which comes with the Cursed Tiki Temple Adventure Pack. He has a release date of March 12th. Once we get him we will do our Wave 4 Unboxing video.Share this article!
Hello Everyone. Here is the compilation of all of the villains and Doomlanders for Skylanders Imaginators. I tried to capture any enemy with an introduction by the announcer. I even put in a couple enemies that didn’t have an announcer introduction. These are just the villains from the main game. I will do another video later with the villains from the adventure packs once all adventure packs are released.

Rumors have been swirling for a while now about Wave 3 Imaginators characters hitting store shelves. I can finally say that they have appeared at my local Toys R Us this weekend. I picked up everything but the Thumpin Wumpa Islands Adventure Pack, since we got that with the PS4 edition of the game. Also, strangely enough I did NOT see that adventure pack at Toys R Us, though you can pick it up from Target Online, so if you are looking for that watch for it to show up soon.
Here is a quick list of the characters you’ll be able to find in Wave 3.
Legendary Pit Boss (TRU Exclusive)
Solar Flare Aurora (Target Exclusive)
If you are looking for the newest Skylanders, head over to your local Toys R Us, or try to order from the website. I would hope they would show up at other retailers in the next week or two. Later this week we’ll share our Wave 3 Unboxing which will also include the Steel Plated Hood Sickle figure which was late to show up at Best Buy and we didn’t get it at launch.
