Geoff posted the news about the new Skylanders Swap Force the other day and it is pretty clear that Geoff isn’t a huge fan of the Activision plan but I can’t say I hold the same contempt for the ideas coming out of the publisher.
Personally I think the new Skylanders looks awesome and I don’t feel it is milking the franchise at all. The only part I don’t like is that we need to buy a new portal this year which is irritating. If Activision decided to be nice they’d release a trade in option where I can get a new platform for R100 if I trade in my old one.
But other than that the idea of getting a new range of Skylanders on a yearly basis feels right to me; I’m not going to rush out and buy all of them for my kids but as a birthday and Christmas present.
Moving on though, here are the first official Screenshots for Skylanders: Swap Force so let us know what you think of the screenshots and the path that Activision is taking.
I'm cranky, arrogant and ever so amazingly annoying but when you get to know me you will also realise I'm honest and incredibly good at describing myself... now pass me that beer
