Man, if I was younger and had access to unlimited monies...

Now I want to be a kid again :o

Posted by Hizang

This idea could be implemented very well with the Pokemon franchise, but man this game looks pretty far from what Spyro was. Spyro himself looks awful and where oh where was Sparx!?

Posted by ComradeCrash

I wish I had this as a kid!

Posted by Shadow

Why didn't they have this technology back when Megabots were popular!? So much wasted potential...

Posted by redbliss

If I was 14 or younger, this would have been a must-buy.

I heard from a friend of a friend that someone here deals with Chop-chops, can we keep this on the down low?

Posted by slashdotdot

If you combined this with any kind MOBA you would have close to infinite money.

Posted by Vonocourt

Idea of it seems pretty cool, though why it isn't co-op escapes me.

Posted by mekklesak

Oh man, this would have made a cool TNT!

Posted by DigTheDoug

Ah, to be young again... and also a robot.

Posted by Elow

Man, if I was a kid I would have been all over this. It's like Pokemon mixed with Diablo.

I can see why this would be awesome in the eyes of a kid.

But isn't this just a kids game with TONS of really expensive on-disc, launch day DLC? I feel like without the toy gimmick, people would be outraged by this.

Yep. Pretty much.

It's definitely cool technology, but you're being charged 70 bucks + levels/characters that is on the disc. Absolutely ridiculous.

i will get this in 6months when it tanks like eye of judgement and get the whole set for £20

This.

I would totally play this if I didn't have to buy all that stupid shit. If I just, I don't know, found a box full of figurines, we'd be talking some Skylanders.

Man, if I were like 10 years old I would play the hell out of this thing. But I'm not...

Edited by DougQuaid

"He's a land crea..he's a Earth Skylander despite being a shark man OOOOOOOHHHHHHHHH AWESOME!"

If you like on-disc DLC, you'll love this!

This stuff seems pretty neat, but very pricey. 70 bucks to get started and then 20 bucks a pop to get more dudes? Damn.

Going out and buying characters or items? A little dirty but well within the range of kids toys. Having to go out and buy levels? Kind of fuckin' reprehensible

If only I was still a kid... and had rich parents...

Posted by Jolt92

WHY DO I WANT THIS?

Posted by lakeshow

I have twin girls who would like to play this game together. Do I need to buy two copies of the game to get two of the portals or can you share one?

Posted by Wandrecanada

Man if I was 20 years younger...

You can share one.

Seems more along the lines of buying additional levels through DLC. Get an additional area and character for 8 bucks or something. It's overpriced no doubt but it's not the worst thing ever. That all kind of hinges on the value of that initial play set a kid would get for $70.

Posted by 49th

That is awesome, also, Tree Guy is bad ass.

Posted by TehJedicake

Shoulda made it so if you put two on the portal it turns into a co-op game

Posted by soralapio

If I was a kid I'd be on this so fucking hard.

Posted by buzz_killington

This actually looks cool.

I don't know that I agree! Eight chapters seems like a decent enough length for a kids' game. All the content is only on the disc because the nature of the figures require it.

Think of it as analog DLC, if that makes you feel better about it.

Posted by brandonleedy

This makes me want to fireup my PS2 and play some PS1 Spyro. I still got the discs but how do I save? Where are my Memory Cards?!

Yeah come on, get the fucking name of the show right. MEDABOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Posted by avidwriter

Wow. I like the concept but that is just greed at its worst.

Posted by Babylonian

@Shadow: Actually, I googled around and found out that they announced a Medabots game for the 3DS this month. What the hell, world?!

Edited by Vorbis

Why didn't this exist when I was a kid!

Posted by prestonhedges

Seems like the kind of thing I would have gone crazy over as a kid but my parents wouldn't buy because they're too smart for that.

Posted by kollay

I kinda... I kinda want this.

What is happening!?

Posted by dvorak

I would have gone fucking crazy over this when I was a kid. I know it's completely stupid, but I wish I had an excuse like Jeff to buy all these and fuck around with them.

Posted by OneManX

ITS LIEK REAL LIFE POKEMON CARDS!!!!

Posted by Sparklykiss

I love this, oh man. I would buy this if I had more income. D:<

@Babylonian: I don't care so much if it is on the disc or not. I just don't understand why this is somehow different or better than $30 of Gears 3 weapon skins. It's not that I think the game is bad - I just don't understand the difference.

If the next Mario game had $8 DLC to play the same game (but with locked out sections) as Luigi or Toad or Princess, people would flip out, right? But somehow getting a plastic statue (and having to pay extra for the 'Base' to scan them in) makes it OK?

Posted by Bevinsky

This makes me sad.

So, so sad.

Posted by maxB

I need that chop chop

@Babylonian: Why? Why now? :'(  
 
Medabots was the shit back in the day. I wanted my own medabot. It's kind of what makes real steel not seem like something that would suck total balls. 
Posted by ShadowKing7

If I was a kid, I would be into this as it looks pretty awesome. As it stands, though, I can only question just how expensive is all this and just how where Spyro has come since his PS1 days.

Posted by Procyon27

I don't care if this was created for kids....this is pretty fucking cool and at 40 years of age would play this....if I had money and time.

Posted by StrainedEyes

Yeah, this is probably the best kids game I have seen in awhile.

Posted by Nizzleworth

8 year old me would have loved this.
