Disney Infinity 3.0- Review

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if Iron Man could fight Storm Troopers alongside Han Solo? Or, what if Donald Duck teamed up with Darth Vader to somehow save the day? I know.. You’re probably expecting me to announce that Marvel has made its way into the world of Kingdom Hearts….not today my dear reader. Today, I am here to talk about the revamped and exciting experience that is Disney Infinity 3.0.

Disney 3.0 focuses around a completely new group to the Disney universes and characters. One of Disney’s more recent acquisitions was Star Wars. The company has wasted no time in putting the franchise to good use and delivering longtime fans new and exciting additions to the franchise. Disney 3.0 is comprised of three level sets and a Toy Box Takeover level. All three are purchasable separately. For those who have purchased their games digitally, and for those new to the series and looking to dive right in, the Saga Bundle is available (exclusively for PS4) and includes a pre-release Boba Fett figure, the base starter kit (Twilight of the Republic,) and the Rise Against the Empire playset .

What we liked about Disney Infinity 3.0:

It’s Not Disney 1 or 2.0:

I don’t know about you, but I bought the first Infinity for the figures, the second one because it was Marvel, and I earned a total of two trophies between both. I found the original Infinity games to be lackluster and developed to please a younger generation. I don’t think Disney Interactive ever saw this appealing to the older generation. With Disney Infinity 3.0, I thoroughly enjoyed playing through the two playsets I received/purchased.

Infinity 3.0 boasts a replay value to it. Each mission is multi-faceted and, like past titles, offers crossover character gameplay. Levels are spot on and larger than previous indications which could, at times, appear linear and could feel playable once. This time around, side missions are included, and the rewards are stellar. Instead of slapping a new coat of paint on Infinity 2.0, the teams at Avalanche and Sumo digital have painstakingly re-worked and well taken care of this game. Fans of Star Wars and Disney Infinity alike will love this new version.

Community Creations:

You spend hours making levels, and you want the world to see them, rate them, and enjoy them. Okay, this is definitely a mode that will connect you with other members of the Disney Infinity community (which I have found to be a wonderful and very active) and play their levels. The cool thing about the Infinity community is the Infinity community. These levels are passionately crafted by teams and gamers alike! A very cool experience for those who are into crafting their own stuff. Also, a great way to continue your gameplay experience.

What We Didn’t Like About Disney Infinity 3.0:

Where Did My Money Go!?:

Disney Infinity is one of those titles that is really fun to play, there is no doubt in my mind about that. I truly enjoy both the nostalgia of many favorite (now) Disney characters and licenses. My absolute favorite characters are Sam Flynn and Quora from the Tron movies. The $30 dollars I shelled out on these characters was okay, but then… you cannot use them in your normal play sets and you have to buy the Toybox Takeover add-on. Don’t get me wrong, the concept is super cool, but the cost to the consumer could be an issue. Collectors won’t care, but the average family isn’t going to be able to afford $70 dollars for a starter set, $14 dollars a figure, and $40 a playset.

The Verdict:

Disney Infinity 3.0 is fun for all ages. It has characters of Disney’s past, present, and future. This game will provide both returning and new players depth and customization found very rarely in modern gaming. If you’re a fan of Marvel, Star Wars, or Disney, make sure to check this one out, but beware the hefty price tag that comes with it.

Lego Dimensions E3 Preview

The Lego series is both a physical toy and a very unique videogame franchise. Both do very well, respectively, and I would say they share the same fan base. Lego Dimensions is their attempt at bringing the physical Lego toys and Lego videogame franchise together.

Certain characters and vehicles can be placed on a special pad and appear in-game. The items can even be changed in real life and be put in the game to serve a different purpose. Also, every character has a unique ability all their own and there is a huge number of characters available.

I watched a demonstration of the game, but didn’t play it myself so I can’t really talk about the controls. I will say that the powers and controls of the game seemed to be simple and required action both in game and on the pad during certain situations.

Without having played it myself, Lego Dimensions does appear to be an innovative and welcome addition to the Lego games. Without the interactive demo, though, flaws are usually pretty hard to see. The only ones that I could really tell was that the audio didn’t seem complete and things got a little jumpy at parts of the level. All in all, I cannot truly say whether this is a game to look forward to or not.

Star Fox Zero E3 Preview

During E3 I got the chance to play the demo of Star Fox Zero, and it did not disappoint. The demo was the first level of the game apparently in its entirety. You start off on the familiar setting of Corneria and the first phase of the mission is almost completely the same as Star Fox 64 with some visual upgrades.

The level was broken in to 3 phases. The first being a familiar rail-shooter and the others being a combat within a set area. I won’t go too far into detail about the story, but you are defending Corneria’s tower from an attack on the last two phases. After fighting some air ships and ground spider things, A boss descends on the tower.

This is where they bring one of my favorite features of Star Fox back. There are different ways to defeat the boss and a different ending for each. One gives more “hits” than the other and gives a more satisfying ending to the boss. I cannot say for sure whether the different endings affect content later in the game, but it seems likely.

The controls of Star Fox Zero are a little different from the nor, but still easy to get the hang of. The right thumb stick controls actions like barrel rolls and turning vertical. Y and B control u turns and flips while RZ fires and left thumb stick steers. Another important feature is that the game pad shows a cockpit view for better aiming. The cockpit view is extremely important in boss fights as the main screen is an overall view of the fight area.
The controls are fluid and easy to grasp, the art style is familiar yet upgraded, and the level of fun is definitely back from the old days. This game looks very promising and is definitely something to look forward too.

Mario Kart 8 Preview

At E3 in 2013, Nintendo announced the development of MarioKart8 for the Wii U. They showed a trailer or a teaser of a race(s) within the game. The trailer showed different characters, vehicle, maps and some new cool features. One feature that had a lot of people amazed was the fact that they saw the vehicles floating on the road whether it was upside down, straight alongside a wall or even in a twisting and winding road. This feature was later announced, on the Nintendo direct for MarioKart8, as anti-gravity. There are a few cool things about anti-gravity that affects the overall gameplay and how each player will now play the game. One of which is the new spin boost which occurs when a player bumps into another player or specified item on the course. Normally people try to avoid contact with others to keep up their speed and to prevent from losing coins. Now this will throw that out the window because Nintendo created this feature to encourage players to hit and smash each other to get farther ahead. To enter Anti-gravity one must cross a blue strip which is pretty hard to miss.

Nintendo also created new courses and even remastered a lot of old ones. Some of which are: 3DS DK Falls, N64 Toad Turnpike, and the all time favorite Rainbow Road. Nintendo does a great job at bringing out all the power that the Wii U can handle because these maps look amazing and look fun to drive. There were also a lot of places that held the demo for the game such as Gamestop. I personally played the demo and from what I can see I think the game will be a hit. The controls are smooth and accurate, the customization of the vehicle with each different part is awesome and depending on the character that you pick you would need to customize the vehicle to balance it off. Speaking of vehicles and characters, the vehicles list includes bikes, Karts, and ATV’s. The customization aspect of it is that a player can pick the vehicle, the type of wheel and the glider for each race. As for the new characters there are the Koopalings, baby Rosalina and Pink Gold Peach. Pink Gold Peach is the new metal character in the game which some fans were hoping for a new one, me included.

There is always the usual worry about the bikes being faster than the karts again, we all know that everyone picked the bikes in MarioKart7 for a reason. Well this has been fixed guys, Nintendo has made it so that bikes and karts are balanced depending on the track. Now I say “depending on the track” for a reason, each track has different turns and different terrain in which certain parts and vehicles are better at. Bikes are better at the turning aspect as handling and speed is concerned but the karts are better at the straight roads than the bikes are. This test was shown on the Nintendo direct with the MarioKart8 director Kosuke Yabuki. As far as new items go we have quite a few to mention. They are the Boomerang Flower, Piranha Plant, the Crazy 8 and the Super Horn. The Boomerang flower is exactly what it sounds like, a Boomerang. It can be thrown at enemies and will come back to the player and if you miss on the initial throw you have a chance to hit them on the way back. The best part of it though, is that you can use it three times. Next the Piranha plant will automatically nom on any player or item in front of it such as the bananas. Then the Crazy 8 will give a player eight items at once and they will be a huge factor in the middle of a race. Lastis the biggest one of all, the Super Horn. This horn is powerful but rare, it will blast a wall of sound at nearby enemies and incoming items. It will even break the Spiny shell that everyone hates.

Last but not least is the online mode which features some nifty things. Nintendo made it easier for people to connect via internet by giving us 4 options: Online, Local, Friends and Tournaments. The first three are straight forward but the tournament option looks fun. Players around the world can host their own tournaments as well as join currently existing ones. The tournament options allow players to customize the race as well as the date and time for this race. They also included a new race speak or chat to where people can speak to each other via headsets. Then there is the new MKTV or MarioKartTV, which allows players to post their replays so them and other people can view them. Now the most interesting part of this though is that you can post your replays directly to Youtube. There is one thing though, the second you do this they will automatically do a copyright claim in which you cannot monitize it for the people planning on doing videos on the game.

This game has had me in its grasp the moment I saw it and I cannot wait to get it. The new anti-gravity, the new items, maps, characters and functions all got me excited for its release. Look forward to a great game guys.
