    I really liked this game. I think the portal idea could be a really neat way to market certian things. I also know that the tablet controler from WiiU will be able to scan objects and put them into your game too. Should be interesting to see what happens.

    Skylanders was also one of the games I enjoyed the most in 2012. Why is that? It’s by Toys for Bob, the guys who were responsible for Star Control II. I mean, those guys really have a massive understanding of what fun is. And Skylanders? Skylanders was really fucking fun. It was better than almost all the mainstream tripe that was released prior to it this year.

    Also, I can’t help but facepalm at NeoSquall. I’m getting kind of tired of people who think they have to be hip kids, making a song and dance about anything that isn’t grimdark and gothy.

    How about playing it before damning it? Who knows, you might actually have fun.

    I would like this tech if I could jam anything on the stupid portal and have it appear in the game.

    Like a He-man figure or a can of Dr Pepper.
