For those who haven't already learned my terrible secret shame via twitter, I kicked off 2014 by by developing a terrible addiction to Skylanders -- that videogame (for children) that makes toy figurines (also for children) playable in-game. I tried to keep away, but Swap Force is a pretty fun spin on Gauntlet Legends, and I like little toy figures, so... danger.
They are announcing the next game in the series this week! Honestly, I'm kind of hoping it will be something terrible sounding, so this won't happen again:
(It will probably happen again.)
This Wednesday, we'll be heading out for our annual drive through the rockies to Calgary Expo! We've done this same trip every year since I started doing the show, and I always look forward to it. It takes a lot longer than flying in, certainly... but as far as travelling to cons goes, you really can't beat the view. (Forests! Mountains! Goats!)
