Warner Brothers re-opens Avalanche Software for Cars 3

Some dark cartoon necromancers have been at work. Avalanche Software, the developers who were shut down after Disney Infinity laid out its roadmap of slow death, marking an end for Disney as a games publisher, have been reopened under Warner Brothers. And they’re going to make the tie-in game for Cars 3. Why are Time Warner making Disney’s videogames for them? I don’t know. That’s…

Disney Infinity Lays Out Road Map Of Slow Death

The famous overlord of joy and money known to mortals as Disney has set out a plan for discontinuing its Disney Infinity [official site] series. While the Steam and console versions will continue to function, the online elements will stop working, meaning you won't be able to download or upload new content. I know you don't care, but your 7-year-old daughter might.

Disney Infinity 3.0 Stars Now Warring On PC

PC is far from the ideal platform to play Disney Infinity [official site], as I understand it, because it doesn't have a magic technoportal to zap its physical toys into the game ("toys-to-life" is the craptastic industry term I recently heard for such things). However, I also understand some people are not very picky about how and where they get more Star Wars, even more…

Star Wars Boldly Going Into Disney Infinity 3.0

You've had a Star Was bed spread, Star Wars pyjamas, Star Wars crockery, Star Wars t-shirts, a Star Wars backpack, Star Wars sunglasses, a Star Wars wedding cake, a Star Wars credit card, and a Star Wars coffin, but do you have Star Wars video games? Well, yes, obviously. But do you have Star Wars characters running around with Spider-Man and Mickey Mouse? Well, outside…

Excelsior! Disney Infinity 2.0 Now On PC

Disney Infinity 2.0 would've been the stuff of dreams when I was a young'un: a game about Marvel superheroes where toys you buy actually become characters in the game. I'd point it out whenever I saw it in a shop window, try to get invited over by friends who had it, circle it in the Argos catalogue before Christmas, then receive something thoughtful but practical…

Win-Toy Soldiers: Disney Infinity – Marvel Super Heroes

Whenever I'm reminded that Disney Infinity exists, I'm amazed that it doesn't have a terrifying claim on parental wallets worldwide. The $75 starter pack that is the gateway into the console toybox has racked up more than three million sales and while the PC version has an initial free download and doesn't support the physical figures that plug into the game, Skylanders-style, it is otherwise…

Disney Infinity Reveals “Toy Box Mode Combat”

Disney's frankly bizarre attempt to make a game that encompasses a large chunk of their major CG franchises (and Pirates Of The Caribbean) in a single package arrives later this month and actually, well, this trailer makes it look pretty fun. Disney Infinity is essentially two games, the Play Set Mode, in which you can play games from specific franchises, and Toy Box Mode, which…

Loading (Wind)Screen: Disney Infinity Shows Cars Things

Cars might have ruined the visual comprehension of cartoon cars for a generation of kids, but there's no denying its popularity with tiny humans. A wise choice, therefore, to make it one of the first unveils for Disney's new game universe online thing. Disney Infinity is a hybird digital and real-world toy system, with different toy sets unlocking stuff in the 'Toy Box' area in-game.…

Disney Infinity: The Game That Won’t Ever Stop

Think about what those words mean. Disney. Everything. Everywhere. Mostly in your wallet, though. Disney Infinity is the frightening new concept from Disney, tying in games and real-world toy figurines into a confusing and vaguely terrifying thing. I've read about it several times now, and I'm making the face a cat makes during fireworks night. A cat that's just been explained the various components of…
