Kids React to Skylanders Trap Team

3,972 views 1 day ago
With details popping up on Amazon Spain, before being pulled down, we have a close look at whether Trap Team is really the name of the next Skylanders game, or possibly just Activision cleverly fooling the internet.

The idea of a team based experience with more of a focus on multi-player both locally and online would certainly fit in terms of what Activision need to do next.

However it is hard to see how Trap Team would work with the toys themselves and doesn't have that hard functional toy hook of Giants and Swap Force.

We should find out more this week. Show less

This week sees the first outing for the new Family Gamer TV weekly news show. The program, hosted by Jordan Erica Webber (video game critic for the Observer amongst others), aims to pick out applicable gaming news for families while also taking a look at video-game sales chart broken down by the PEGI age groups.

Andy Robertson of Family Gamer TV said of the new enterprise, "while families will often dip in to more avid gaming sites to find out what's happening with the likes of Skylanders, Minecraft, Disney Infinity and LEGO games there hasn't been video that keeps them up to date with news on a weekly basis. We are simply filling that gap."

Focusing on game sales by age group offers a different take on what is hot in video-games. Titles otherwise submerged beneath big sales in the PEGI 16 and PEGI 18 category can now get more of the limelight. It also reveals how few big selling games are found in the PEGI 12 category, something the industry would do well to rectify.

From here the show dips into the latest news, rumours and updates on the big family games, while also keeping an eye out for indie titles and lesser known experiences that might be a good fit for families.
Finally the show rounds things off with a look at the upcoming releases, again grouped by PEGI rating. This offers a chance for families to plan how they may spend their gaming allocated funds a little more wisely.
