Abzu Review (10/10)

Here’s out interview with Matt Nava about the inspiration and development of his new game Abzu.

Although we don’t want to spoil what’s in the game with an in depth review, in terms of a score we give Abzu top marks for families. Not only does it look amazing, but it also introduces children to a magical world that could well inspire them to try Scuba Diving in real life.

Score: 10/10

Meet Chopscotch – Skylanders Imaginators Gameplay & Exclusive Reveal

We take a look at a new female Sensei character for Skylanders Imaginators. Chopscotch with a range of playground themed axe attacks she’s an unusual and interesting hero.

Back Story:
The only thing that ever mattered to Chopscotch was mastering her weapon of choice, the giant axe, while rocking out to her favorite musical idol, Wolfgang.  It never bothered her that she was short in stature or that all of the other ghouls in the Underworld laughed at the way she spoke in rhymes as she made up her own lyrics to Wolfgang’s guitar jams.  So when Wolfgang joined the villainous Doom Raiders, she was devastated.  But instead of letting it destroy her, she chose to put her axe skills to good use, and fought Wolfgang and his Moon Goons when they attempted to curse her entire town during an evil concert.  Her willingness to stand up to her long time hero came as a surprise to everyone, and soon all of the villagers were speaking in rhymes in her honor.  Soon after, she met Master Eon, who was so impressed at her fighting abilities and positive outlook that he recruited her as a Sensei for the Smasher Class.  Now she teaches new Skylanders how to fight… and how to rhyme!

No news on her Catchphrase yet though
