In This Week's Show

Skylanders Giants is well and truly with us, but we discover that many people aren't aware of the new features, the new implications for figures they may already have and just what the buying options are.

In this episode we sit down with a mum of a household of Skylanders fans and talk her through the unboxing of the new Skylanders Giants, take a look at the included figures and discuss the new features such as Lightcore, the wired portal and the Giants range. We also discuss the differences between the Skylanders Giants Starter Pack and the Skylanders Giants Booster (Portal Owners) Pack. This week's show is simply a must for those that are looking for a simple explanation of the new Skylanders Giants game.

Andy Robertson writes the Family Gamer column.

"Videogame reviews for the whole family, not just the kids. I dig out videogame experiences to intrigue and interest grownups and children. This is post-hardcore gaming where accessibility, emotion and storytelling are as important as realism, explosions and bravado."
