Disney Infinity 2.0 gets Marvel-less Toy Box Starter Pack

disneyinfinity20toyboxDisney Interactive’s big Marvel push begins next month with the release of Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes. The Starter Pack will include three Marvel figures (Iron Man, Thor, and Black Widow) as well as the promise of many more in the future. But what if you don’t like Marvel characters and are just looking to explore the expanded Toy Box mode found in the game that is also known as Disney Infinity 2.0 Edition? Well, you’re in luck, Disney also plans to release a special Toy Box Starter Pack on November 4.

Set to be available for the PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, and Xbox One, the Toy Box Starter Pack will come complete with two Toy Box Game Discs, a 2.0 Edition Base, two figures (Brave’s Merida and Stitch from Lilo & Stitch), and the same Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes game disc as the regular Starter Pack. Looks like you can’t completely get away from the Marvel content.

“Disney Infinity fans spend the majority of their time inside the Toy Box mode, and with our new Toy Box Starter Pack, we’re giving Disney fans an alternative entry point to the Disney Infinity sequel,” said John Blackburn, Vice President and General Manager of Avalanche Software. “We’ve completely re-tooled the Toy Box for this year’s version of Disney Infinity, and we want every Disney fan to experience it using their favorite Disney or Marvel characters.”

The Toy Box Starter Pack will be priced at $59.99, which is slightly cheaper than the $74.99 price tag that has been attached to the Marvel Super Heroes Starter Pack.

From Parts Unknown… here is the WWE 2K15 roster

wwe2k15-boxSummerSlam is just a few hours away, but yesterday was an equally important day for the WWE. On Saturday, the WWE and 2K Games revealed the roster for this October’s WWE 2K15.

The roster features a lot of familiar names including The Undertaker, John Cena, Triple H, Kane, and Shawn Michaels. But the roster also includes several unexpected names such as CM Punk, who “retired” from the WWE earlier this year. Is his inclusion a spoiler for a future WWE storyline, or does the company just want to squeeze one last appearance out of one of its biggest stars?

WWE 2K15 will be released for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One on October 18. You can find the full roster (which the WWE and 2K both stress as “not final,” so it’s subject to change) after the break. (more…)

newreleases081914

The Summer is winding down, but that’s a good thing for the New Releases calendar as three highly anticipated titles will make their way to store shelves this week.

The latest entry in Bandai Namco’s Tales series of action RPGs, Tales of Xillia 2, will finally make its North American PS3 debut. The game was originally released in Japan in 2012, but it’s better late than never. The next game in the franchise, Tales of Zestiria, will launch simultaneously in Japan and the rest of the world.

Also available this week is Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition, the console-exclusive collection bundles together Diablo III and the Reaper of Souls expansion into a single package. It’ll be available for the PS4 and Xbox One as well as the PS3 and Xbox 360.

Finally, Electronic Arts will bring Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare to PlayStation platforms. After its Xbox debut in the Spring, the game will now be available for the PS3 and PS4 too.

The Last of Us returns to the top of the best-seller list in July 2014 NPD report

thelastofus-header

In previous years, the best-sellers chart for the month of July would normally be dominated by the latest entry in the NCAA Football series. But EA Sports canceled the series last Fall, so a new emperor is sitting upon the July Throne in 2014. Or rather, an emperor we’ve seen before in a spiffy new set of clothes.

This is a roundabout way of saying that the Remastered re-release of Sony’s The Last of Us (combined with more sales on the PS3) pushed the game to the top of the best-sellers chart. July was a pretty sparse month as far as new releases go, but 505′s Sniper Elite III also cracked the top ten. It was number eight… with a bullet.

You can check out July’s complete top ten list (which includes May releases Watch Dogs and Mario Kart 8 hanging tough in the top five) after the break. (more…)

MGS5: Phantom Pain Gamescom gameplay video released; PC version announced

Another extended gameplay video for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was released yesterday as part of Konami’s Gamescom festivities. If you’ve wondered about the utility of a cardboard box with a bikini babe painted on it in stealth warfare, wonder no more. And that’s to say nothing of the exploding horse poop.

However, if you’d like the creators of The Phantom Pain to say a bit more, Metal Gear maestro Hideo Kojima took part in a nearly 90-minute interview on Twitch to discuss his latest game. Definitely check it out if you’re interested in the inner workings of Snake’s next adventure.

And if you’d rather play Snake’s next adventure on a PC, you’ll be happy to know that the wait is over. Konami officially confirmed (via Twitter) that The Phantom Pain and Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes will be available through Steam sometime in the future. Hopefully, Ground Zeroes will be available soon. The Phantom Pain will likely launch around the same time as the previously announced PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One editions.

Disney Infinity 2.0 adds Donald Duck to the bill

Following up on their Aladdin and Jasmine trailer, Disney Interactive announced yet another character to add to the already impressive Toy Box roster for Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes: Donald Duck. Donald will be available for purchase this fall, presumably shortly after the game releases.

Now we just need Panchito Pistoles and Jose Carioca and we can get a real Three Caballaros game going. September 23rd can’t come soon enough.
