Review Skylanders Burn Rubber in New 'SuperChargers'

Review Skylanders Burn Rubber New SuperChargers image0

What do kids love as much as — if not more than — action figures? Things for them to drive. Whether it's a convertible for Barbie or a tank for G.I. Joe, no toy box is complete without a car, plane or boat for your dolls to cruise around in. So when Activision announced it was adding vehicles to this year's edition of its blockbuster Skylanders franchise, the universal reaction was "Of course." Who wouldn't want to ride shotgun with Spyro, Gi... more

'Forza Motorsports 6' Is Back in the Race

For all its glorious eye candy, "Forza Motorsport 5" was a disappointment. The series had plenty of momentum going into the Xbox One launch, but the 2013 entry lacked the robust content the series was building toward. If it were a car, you could say the franchise stalled out in the transition between console generations. This year, Turn 10 Studios returns with the follow-up, and from the start, it's obvious that "Forza Motorsport 6" has regai... more

When it comes to "Star Wars," some aliens in a different galaxy said it best: Resistance is futile. If you don't know by now that a new "Star Wars" movie is coming to theaters in December, it's time you came back down to Earth. By the end of this week, stores across this planet will be invaded by more Lucasfilm-inspired action figures and toy spaceships than you can shake a lightsaber at. There will also be video games, starting with "Disney... more

'Volume' Brings a Rebellious Heart to Video Game Trends

Take the myth of Robin Hood, add a cyber-punk look and mix in some hacker sensibility. Welcome to "Volume," which just so happens to be one of the most subversive video games released this year. On the surface, "Volume" is a game of stealth and thieving. Yet these are clandestine operations that reflect a YouTube generation and an economically depressed climate. "Things are brilliant," says our hero, Rob, "if you're born into the right role.... more
