The idea was to show folks a quick five minute video of the character creation process in Skylanders: Imaginators. What I ended up is a nearly 20 minute testament to how deep and compelling this year's gimmick turned out.

You remember how it seemed staggering that Gears of War 4 was going to consume up to 80GB of hard drive space? Well it's time to move over, because Call of Duty wants a word with your hard drive.
The latest instalment of Activision's toys-to-life series series allows players to create their own Skylanders characters. Thanks to a mobile app launching alongside the game later this month, they will also be able to make 3D printed figures, playable trading cards and t-shirts featuring their creations.
Destiny 2, the currently unannounced 2017 sequel to Destiny, is coming to PC, according to several sources. The first game was exclusive to consoles, much to the dismay of Destiny fans with beefy computers. We also hear that Bungie aims to make Destiny 2 feel like an entirely new game rather than a Taken King-style expansion — even if that means leaving old characters behind.
Out of all the games that make up the global circuit for esports around the world, Call of Duty is the one where Australia has consistently punched above their weight. Our teams have turned in good performances year after year on the global stage, something Activision recognised in part when Australia and New Zealand was given their own region for the inaugural Call of Duty World League.
But you can't punch above your weight forever. And while fans might have been hoping for a resurgence following the drubbing handed out at the Crown Invitational earlier this year, it wasn't to be with all of Oceania's representatives falling at the group stages.
If there's one thing that will live on in my memory for a long, long time, it's the many memories I have of late night LAN parties playing Call of Duty 4. Over, and over, and over, and over again.
People have been playing the multiplayer of the remastered Modern Warfare a go over the last couple of days. And the best possible thing happened: it looks and sounds like what I played at all those LANs many moons ago.
It's that time of year again, when the reliable Christmas releases of FPS games make warfare seem infinite — just as well the new CoD is suitably named Infinite Warfare. This year, those who preorder the game on PS4 will be granted access to a super special club of people who get to play the multiplayer early.
The Orion vs Activision Steam removal saga continues. Trek Industries' David Prassel says that Activision contacted him with evidence that certain in-game assets were directly ripped from Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. The artist responsible has apparently been fired. Check the update to my original story for more.
Yesterday, Steam dinosaur game The Orion Project got yanked from Steam. Trek Industries' David Prassel posted an update to Steam claiming that his game was the victim of a DMCA claim from Activision. And then the real fun began.
Call of Duty has dealt with plenty of boycotts and angry fans in the past. The Infinite Warfare reveal trailer was another thing entirely, however, with more downvotes than many trailers have views. It was so one-sided Activision even put out a response.
The latest Infinite Warfare footage from E3 looks miles better. But do you think that's stopped the internet downvote train? Course not.
