I dig custom consoles. Hell, I’ve owned a couple, with my current Xbox 360 being housed in a nifty Gears Of War 3 shell that I picked up for cheap a while ago. My PlayStation 4 however, as sexy as it is, looks rather plain. I need something to distinguish it. I need something to make it stand out. Or I could just let it go with this Frozen variant.

So the video game industry is still under attack by the militant feminist brigade and their white knight cavalry, and in my opinion most of it is just garbage. However, I stumbled across a video today that they may be interested in, which would also help us all.

I don’t think anyone has experienced great space combat in gaming untile they’ve played at least one Star Wars game AND GET BACK IN YOUR HOLE STARLANCER!..Ahem. The Star Wars Rogue Squadron games are great examples of the genre, from PC all the way to the Gamecube. A new version of that revered genre was on the way to PC. Was.

For a company that is rolling in billions of dollars from various film releases over the last couple of years, Disney hasn’t been too keen to push out movie tie-in games as of late. That’s because after a slew of less than mighty Marvel titles, the folks involved in that side of the business want quality over quantity now. Which is why we’re yet to see a proper game that will assemble some Avengers on our consoles.

With Skylanders raking in some well-earned profits in the burgeoning toys to life genre, it was only a matter of time before some competition arose. The nearest such rival to that throne right now is Disney, with a solid line-up of characters and ideas. Disney Infinity gets an upgrade tonight. Here’s what went down earlier.

We knew this day would come. With Disney owning the rights to Marvel characters, it was only a matter of time until they mashed them up against other Disney characters. It appears that time has come, but is it also a sign of a new kind of Disney Infinity.

Star Wars games have been pretty terrible of late. Kinect Star Wars for the Xbox 360 was an abomination, Angry Birds Star Wars was actually pretty good save for the fact that it was Angry Birds and Tiny Death Star, though cute isn’t really much of a Star Wars game. There was a new hope; Star Wars 1313, a game that had players take on the role of bounty hunters instead of Jedi.

It’s a well known fact that much like in gaming, adapting movies to comic books is something akin to watching a train wreck slowly. One comic book publisher that set the bar high though? Dark Horse comics, who made Star Wars comic books well worth reading and collecting. And it’s been a hell of a run for them.

We all had nightmares when Disney acquired the Star Wars IP - what sort of movies and games could we expect? However, the first game looks positively delightful. I think I may just have to get it now, partly because it's free.

Damn you Disney. Damn your massive ears! If there was one game that I was looking forward to, it was Star Wars 1313. Revealed at E3 2012, the game looked pretty damn strong in the Force. And thanks to some new details being revealed, I’m even sadder than ever about the game being scrapped.

No good deed goes unpunished, and when it comes to crafting a great game, that goes double in this industry. With Activison having a massive hit on their hands with the Skylanders franchise, it was only a matter of time until someone saw else got themselves a slice of that young market. Disney is the first real such competition in the toys to life genre. And by copying someone else, this is the most original work that the house of mouse has unleashed in several years.
