SDCC: ‘Disney Infinity 2.0′ Hands-On Report, Part 2; Comic-Con Events

tink_and_stitch

As part of the third annual ‘Sweet Suite’ event held last night in New York City, I once again had the distinct pleasure to meet with ‘Disney Infinity’ executive producer John Vignocchi as I got a second recent look at the upcoming ‘Disney Infinity 2.0 Edition’ title on the PS4 on an even newer build than the one I saw last month. Unfortunately I didn’t get any actual hands-on with the game this time around as the build is so recent, it contained items not yet officially announced so there’s nothing I can share in terms of that other than to prepare you to hold on to your seats firmly, especially as San Diego Comic-Con hits us next week.

REVIEW: ‘Disney Checkout Challenge’ for iOS

Disney Checkout Challenge for iOSIn the interest of full disclosure, I generally spend far more time playing an app before putting forth a review, but I am making a rare exception for ‘Disney Checkout Challenge‘ for multiple reasons. First of all, there isn’t actually all that much to the gameplay itself, so I feel pretty confident giving it my honest impression. Second, it’s from Disney’s Creature Feep Studio — the folks behind the legendary JellyCar, Where’s My Water? and many other strongly developed mobile games. And lastly, it’s insanely fun and addictive and you need to know about it.

REPORT: ‘Disney Infinity’ Marvel Super Heroes Hands-On and News

Disney Infinity 2.0 Toy BoxAt the Disney Consumer Products holiday preview event recently held in New York City, I was able to get some limited play time in on the ‘Disney Infinity 2.0′ Marvel Super Heroes edition ‘Spider-Man’ play set and toy box.

Overall the game play seems to be on par with — if not better than — the first generation. One particularly cool upgrade, however, is a ‘compass’ or ‘radar’ on the heads-up display which should be familiar to any casual gamer, which points out points of interest as well additional quest locations. Additionally, due to the size of the play set area, on-screen indicators pop up to indicate the distance to points of interest as you travel towards them.
