Today announced that EA SPORTS FIFA 15 is bringing football to life in stunning visual detail so fans can experience the emotion and intensity of football like never before, on Xbox One, , PlayStation 4, and new this year, PC, now fuelled by EA SPORTS IGNITE. Fans who pre-order FIFA 15 Ultimate Team Edition will receive up to £30+ value of FIFA Ultimate Team content including new EA SPORTS Football Club items and game celebrations.


With Emotional Intelligence, FIFA 15 models the emotional state of all 22 players on the pitch, giving fans a chance to experience first-hand the attitudes and personalities of the world’s best football players during a match. FIFA 15 players now have a range of emotions that evolve contextually throughout the game based on interactions with opponents and teammates. Each player has an attitude or feeling towards everyone else on the pitch and will react accordingly during the game’s events – frustration after missed passes, anger with hard tackles, and excitement when chances are taken are just some of the over 600 reaction animations that could tell the story of the game.

“We want our fans to feel the highs and lows of the drama that is football, and experience the emotional rollercoaster that plays out during a match,” said David Rutter, Executive Producer, EA SPORTS FIFA. “We’re now able to immerse you in the game and let the story of the match unfold based on new commentary, crowd activity, and the natural reactions of the players, which make every game unique.”

In FIFA 15, Authentic Player Visuals come to life on a Living Pitch where everything is alive and the turf evolves at every step, plant, or slide. For the first time ever, the FIFA development team utilized physically based rendering to bring atmospheres and players to life, further blurring the line between the virtual and real world of football. The new rendering works in combination with a new player model and rigging system to make every athlete look and feel athletic, lean, and true to their natural form. FIFA 15 is played on a Living Pitch where boots and hard slide tackles will leave their mark as each match progresses; players will get mud and dirt on their kits. Other visual details including animated LED ad boards, corner flag and goal frame movement, and realistic atmosphere conditions will keep fans immersed in the game.

“Visually, this is the biggest step the FIFA franchise has ever taken,” said David Rutter. “We set out with the goal of creating atmosphere, players, crowds, and pitches that not only look like they do on match day, but also feel like they do when you play or watch football it’s a level of immersion we’ve never been able to bring to the game before.”

Agility & Control builds on step-based locomotion and delivers an all new level of responsiveness and control to FIFA 15. Tuned player biomechanics cause players to react and move with balance and closer control when in possession of the ball. Precise steps and turns at low speed, and closer control at high speeds will give FIFA 15 fans more control and increased mobility when commanding players on the pitch. New stutters and strides let you cut, sprint, and explode out of turns, and run touch dribbling gives players’ personality that reflects their real self. A new ball physics system models ball movement depending on the spin and the precise contact with the ball. The accurate movement of the ball, combined with the control of the player brings a new level of realism to dribbles, touches, passes, and deflections in FIFA 15.

Off the ball, Man to Man Battles transforms defending in FIFA 15. Players now use full-body defending to separate their man from the ball, while possession tackles will reward great defending, helping defenders keep the ball close to their feet when a challenge is made. New shoulder barges, shirt pulling, and big fall physics allow fans to feel the battle making dispossessing opponents more rewarding than ever.

Opponents and Teammates in FIFA 15 now make decisions just like real athletes. New to FIFA 15, players now have short, medium, and long term objectives that they decide upon as a team and execute using Team Tactics. If a team is up by a goal, they might park the bus, or if they are down a goal, they might try to get it in the mixer to be more direct in attack and secure a last gasp winner. This, along with other Team Tactics and mentality choices, creates emergent and realistic gameplay moments that become part of every game.

FIFA 15 , developed at EA Canada, will release worldwide in September on PC, Xbox One and the PlayStation 4, and is available for pre-order now at http://www.origin.com and other retailers. A version of FIFA 15 will also release on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation Vita

Skylanders Trap Team

Developer Toys for Bob, creators of the Toys-to-Life return with another exciting innovation with Skylanders Trap Team. The newest installment to the Skylanders franchise will reverse the magic of bringing toys-to-life, letting kids take characters out of the digital world and bring them into the physical world. In Skylanders Trap Team, Portal Masters seek out and defeat the most wanted villains in all of Skylands, pulling them out of the game and into living rooms by capturing them in Traps. Players can then send villains back into the game where they play as them to fight for good. Skylanders Trap Team will include the Traptanium Portal™, a new ring of magical energy that enables kids to not only bring their Skylanders to life, but also capture villains using the new Traps. Skylanders Trap Team introduces new heroes known as Trap Masters and will be available on 5th October in North America and 10th October for the UK for Xbox One and Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Nintendo’s Wii and Wii U. A completely unique adventure will be available on the Nintendo 3DS

Welcome to the new Skylanders game from Activision and Toys for Bob, But this years game is a little different to the past games. With Skylanders Trap Team they have reversed the magic by bringing characters out of the game, into the physical “Traps” that you can take with you, and bring life to the toys.


As always Chaos continues his Evil ongoing quest to take over Skylands, with his discovery of the legendary Cloudcracker Prision, a fortress built entirely of the magic substance called “Traptanium”  that is the home to the Skylands most nefarious baddies.

Kaos starts by blowing up the prison, which releases the most wanted villians with this blasting shards of Traptanium to Earth in the form of Traps. It’s now up to the Portal Masters to recapture all the escaped villains by using the “Traptanium Trap” and then to defeat Kaos before time runs out!

Now Skylanders Trap Team introduces a newest idea with the most wanted villains in Skylands and then play as them in the game in the battle for good.

STT_Water_Tiki_Trap_FINAL_HiRes STT_Life_Hammer_Trap_FINAL_HiRes

Here is the Water Traptanium “Trap”                                             Here is the Life Traptanium “Trap”


                                                The New Traptanium Portal with the new character called Snap Shot (Trap Master)

The game offers a total new addition to the game’s play pattern in the form of Traptanium Traps. When this new type of toy is placed directly into the Traptanium Portal, Portal Masters can then “capture” a variety of special villains from the game and magically transport them from Skylands into the real world.

If you watch the little video above you may see a few new characters

Here are a Few Key Features of the new game

  • Toys to Life, Life to Toys – Now you will experience a new level of Skylanders innovation through the Traptanium Portal, a new ring of magical energy which reverses the magic of the toys to life category by letting players bring digital characters into the physical world. With a built-in audio speaker allows players to magically hear the unique voices of the villains travel from the game into the real world Trap, and vice versa. Also the Trap also lights up in sync with the villain speaking, adding even more magic to the experience. If you look closely, you can almost see the villain trying to escape from inside the Trap.
  • Two Ways to Play – In Skylanders Trap Team, you can play as a Skylander or as capture Skylands’ most wanted foes and unleash them for good this time.  Now it’s up to  the Portal Masters to find these villains and capture them inside the new Traps that transport the villains into the real world via the Traptanium Portal. Once trapped, players can return the villain to Skylands as a playable character at anytime in the game. This new play pattern gives you the option to switch between playing as a Skylander hero or a villain at any time, creating fun and unique “tag team” gameplay.

  • Trading Cards – Learn more about each Skylander’s powers and abilities

The Themed Trap designs adds a variety to the collectible Skylanders Trap Team experience. Each Trap is elementally aligned, letting players capture villains who fall under that element. For instance, when Portal Masters explore the world of Skylands and encounter a water villain, they can insert a water Trap into the Traptanium Portal to capture that villain, as well as bring that villain back into Skylands as a playable character who helps in the fight for good. In total there are 8 “Trap” for the game you can buy for it, but you can finish the whole game with just the starter pack for it.

With Skylanders Swap Force released last Sunday (13th October) in North American and Europe on the 18th October (Tomorrow). As it only a few hours until Swap Force is released why not watch the Official Skylanders: “Just Like SWAP Force” Trailer (Extended) Trailer.

Embark on an exciting new adventure with the Skylanders and the SWAP Force. For generations, the SWAP Force protected the volcano that replenishes Skylands¹ magic. That is until an epic battle caught them in an eruption that blasted them apart, sent them to Earth and gave them the ability swap powers. Only you can mix and match their tops and bottoms, put them on the new Portal of Power and help save Skylands!


Ok let’s start at the beginning with Skylanders first before I get into Disney Infinity, when Activision brought out Skylanders – Spyro’s Adventure two years ago it was a huge gamble from Activision. The idea that players would buy a game and use related figures to expand the experience seemed too expensive and very risky since it would look like a money grab. Not only did the experiment work, but it also created a big franchise.

Disney is a juggernaut with its vast library of television and film characters which most people know. The game is split into two modes, each with different mechanics. The first is Play Sets, which takes the world of a movie or series and transforms it into an adventure with appropriate tasks. Though each play set differs in content and focus, the basics are similar.


You’re given an open world to explore with no load times, but the worlds are quite small, so don’t expect Saints Row type game. You’re free to do as you please, and there are plenty of side-quests to occupy your time. There’s also a litany of world-specific collectibles and achievements. Specific missions propel the tale forward, and they are the most important aspect if you want to progress. While the sets can be played solo, you can also play them in co-op. Due to the split-screen nature of co-op, players can play together or independently as long as they stay within the same area of the map.

Included in the starter pack are three play sets with three corresponding figures. The first play set is Monsters University with Sulley. Instead of doing an adaptation of the movie events, the game focuses on a nebulous time within the movie universe, so it’s spoiler-free for those who haven’t seen the film yet. The Monster University game begins at the start of Fear-it Week, when Monsters University and rival school Fear Tech compete in a series of tasks and games to rack up points. With school pride on the line, it’s be up to you to clean up the mess caused by Fear Tech students and then travel to their campus to create some mischief.

Monsters University is set up with a focus on stealth and platforming rather than combat. Though you fight a few Fear Tech bullies with toilet paper guns, paintball guns and a charge move, scares are your main mode of offense, and they are more effective when you sneak up on an unsuspecting target. When you aren’t scaring students, you’ll set up gag items that launch an unsuspecting student into the air, get him painted or send him down a sewer. Beyond this, you’ll collect stuff and do fetch quests, like painting over rival posters, dressing up students or getting rid of toilet paper and banners from your campus


The lack of dedicated combat limits the appeal of this play set, but it’s perfect for those who just want to goof off. There are lots of people you can throw for no good reason, and the focus on prank traps really opens up once you obtain more traps that you can chain together. There are even ramps and half-pipes on which you can perform bike tricks.

You won’t be doing anything complicated, but it’s a nice diversion. The variety of fetch quests keep the player engaged since the game spaces out activities before they start to repeat. There’s rarely a time when you don’t feel like you have anything to do, and when you consider the size of each location, that’s a good thing.

With Pirates of the Caribbean making up the second play set of Disney Infinity, and with this play set it provides an alternate take on the second and third films. Playing with the included Captain Jack Sparrow figure, you race against time to stop Davy Jones from obtaining the treasures required to rule the seas. You want the same treasures to stop the Kraken that Davy Jones controls.


The Pirates of the Caribbean play set has straightforward platforming action. You’ll solve light puzzles or jump from ledge to ledge to reach higher places or find hidden treasure chests. Swordplay is your main form of combat, and you’ll duke it out with Davy Jones’ crew. You have secondary weaponry in the form of pistols and bombs, but their reload times are quite long, so you have to mix things up to make your attacks effective.

With the upcoming launch of Skylanders SWAP Force from Activision on 13th October, 2013 in North America and 18th October in the UK, Activision has brought the world of Skylands to life for one special day in Times Square and invited fans to participate in the “SWAPtoberfest” event.
