Disney Infinity is Now Available, Here’s What you Need

Editor: Please welcome a new guest author Jeff H. who will be covering the Disney gaming beat for us.

Disney Infinity

Disney is betting big on Disney Infinity. The game/collector’s set came out this past Sunday along with rave reviews from the web’s top video game sites. I received my copy Monday and have had a few hours to mess around with it. Here are my impressions as well as a few tips for those who want to get into the magic and a warning for those who are overwhelmed by your options.

The first thing I noticed when booting up Infinity was just how slick of a production the opening tutorial is. It feels like something straight out of Epcot, taking the player on a journey from idea to fantasy, while teaching you how to play the game. The tutorial is slow paced, and will prepare you for anything you will come across in adventure mode.

Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom Hints from Game Creator

I’ll admit it’s been a while since I’ve played Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom. It’s not that I don’t enjoy the game, but just that with shorter off-season hours, I don’t get to the property as much and when I do, I have other things to do when I am there (EPCOT’s 30th took a big chunk of my energy and time for one). I’m also a little disappointed that the game really hasn’t evolved any from its debut. No new portals, no new villains, and only two new spell cards. Plus there was the whole 61-70 card money grab by merchandising. The whole project started to stink a bit.

That said, I do intend to get back in the game and also to see if I can re-interest my son in playing again as well. If you’re still involved, or hoping to get involved in SotMK, then you’ll be interested in some inside tips shared with the Disney Parks blog by Imagineer and game creator Jonathan Ackley.Read More »Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom Hints from Game Creator

Disney Fantasy – Enchanted Art

Enchanted art is the logical progression of those little digital frames you send your grand parents stuffed with pictures of their grand children. Some people liken it to the moving photos in Harry Potter films, but it’s really more magical than that. Disney pushed the… Read More »Disney Fantasy – Enchanted Art
