This week on the cast, I had a chance to sit down with veteran developers Paul Reiche and Fred Ford — Makers of Star Control 2, one of my favorite games of all time. With the announcement of their sequel, we talked about the design of Star Control 2, and their plans for Ghosts of the Precursors.
It was only a matter of time after collecting the Amiibos that I wanted to look at the other big players in the Toys to Life Genre. Thanks to a sale, I managed to grab the starter pack of Skylanders Giants and looked at the brand in detail. Examining Giants, I can see why the series has been a massive success for younger audiences, but I think it’s missing the hook for older ones as well.
