Damn, they got Patrick Warburton as a voice actor.

No one portal should have all that power.

Important note for anybody who might buy the game: the Wii version runs like garbage - constantly sub 20 fps. Pretty big bummer!

Come on you two. Kids come to this site. No need for that kind of talk.

As for this game, as an adult I find this whole Skylanders thing really disgusting but I know that if this came out when I was a kid I would have gone fucking nuts over it. Also, amazing puns on the unit names. I love me a good pun.

I fail to see the point. Wouldn't it just be better to have an ingame character select menu instead of having to have all these plastic toys around?

I'm sure kids would prefer to push buttons and not actually be able to play with toys while also playing the game.

Shit, I'd collect 'em too if I had the dough.

More money than sense.

Whatever gets Toys for Bob closer to making a new Star Control game is ok with me.

Am I crazy or is the voice of the machine ghost the same as Mordin Solus?

Posted by Cocainemancer

Get Thumpback and Eye-Brawl, dawgs.

Edited by CaLe

If Jeff hadn't already formed an unhealthy relationship with this franchise, I'm pretty sure he would consider that whole area locking to specific toys disgusting. Not to mention the in-game ads for other toys.

Does the robot sound like Clank to anyone else?

Jeff has a problem: HE'S TOO AWESOME.

That was my attempt at spamming F5 at 8:59 AM EDT then replying as fast as possible for the site quest and I still didn't get it.

So Skystone is basically the card battle game from FF8 but with fewer numbers? Weird.

Posted by fox01313

Seems good for those who are interested or those who have bought the first one. I might wait until a sale to grab the core pack to get this but in no rush to get it as still needing to take on x-com & few other games.

Poor Spyro.

Edited by buzz_killington

Haha, at the end it's like Ryan's Jeff's dad and can't believe how much he's had to shell out for his nonsense.

Stop reminding me that this is what the creators of Star Control is doing these days.

Posted by MasonL87

@ildon: He seems to be a magnet for this sort of thing. Though it was odd during the video because I keep thinking to myself "Why is Brock Samson taking shit from these guys?"

Skystones? Sounds like a super simple version of the FF8 card game. Neat.

OMG I forgot about that until now, cared about those cards more than my characters, I need to play 8 again.

Lol the end of this just looked like they were wondering wtf they were doing with their lives

Posted by HedinnWeis

My favorite part of this video is the awkward silence right after Ryan ends the quicklook.

YOU ARE THE ONE THAT HAS A PROBLEM.

THERE IS NOTHING WEIRD ABOUT COLLECTING THESE THINGS.

NOTHING.

AND FUCK YOU, MY WIFE, OUR KIDS, THE SCHOOL BOARD, THE JUDGE AND MY CELL MATE BIG BO BANGLES FOR THINKING SO.

Oh Jeff. You and your toys.

Skylander giving tf2 a run for the hat money?

Posted by rebgav

FIFTEEN DOLLAR-POUNDS PER CHARACTER?!

Holy shit.

Posted by krabboss

@Jeff You can absolutely skip dialogue and cutscenes in Giants, man. I'm not sure how it's done in the 360/PS3 version, but I think it's Y/Triangle. Check the manual.

Posted by Fredddi43

The ghost has one of the best voices ever. I want to hear more of it. Maybe I'll buy the game just for that.

Posted by RudeCubes

Skystones is totally Tetra Master!

Edited by TwoLines

Skystones is totally Tripple Triad from FF8.

@RudeCubes: Kinda, but Tetra Master had 8 arrows, TT had 4, much like this. Also, TM had a bigger board (way bigger) TT had a 3x3 board. Also, TT kicked ass, TM not so much.

Posted by chrispti

Say what you want but this is a creative idea that is implemented well.

PS: Get Thumpback Jeff.

Jeff probably has many problems, this is but one of them.

Edited by gelatinabomination

I'm not going to lie: That jive-talkin' robot is pretty great. The pimp hat really completes it.

Edit: Just realized that the robot did not come with that hat originally. That sullies it a little.
