Well here it is on Halloween.  10 days ago at this time I was trying to piece a strategy together to pick up Skylanders and land the characters I was hoping for (Granite Crusher, Legendary Bouncer etc).  I've been really busy, but have managed to get a few unboxings uploaded.

That said, I have already started recording the Giants Playthrough.  As of typing this, I have Part 11 editing and am about to start uploading all the other parts (just edited Parts 3-10 this evening/tonight).

I warned early on that the playthrough's first few videos could be somewhat meandering...as fate would have it that is exactly what happened.  Right after the opening cut scene we were thrust into Chapter 1...After wrapping up Ch. 1 we found ourselves in Chapter 2.  This made things a bit more complicated than I had intended and kind of altered my plans.

With that under my belt, I have kind of found a point of equilibrium here.  After the chaos that was the initial recordings, I spent the next few videos just trying to address what characters work, how they show up in the game, what their stats are compared to their counterparts, Wow Pow, LightCore, etc.

Luckily, in Part 6 we kind of got the ball rolling and I think the meandering and rambling will kind of stay in the past.

The plan right now is to take things just like we did in Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure, which is just how they come.  If I go in tonight and record Chapter 3 and 4 and then run to the store and find Sprocket, Flashwing, and Hot Head I will introduce them all, take on their heroic challenges, and then proceed to Chapter 5.  It isn't the way I'd like to do it, but it is the only way to really keep a continuous story line in my opinion.

For people following the playthrough, I want you to see a new character (Sprocket) etc get introduced.  I don't want you to have to watch the next Chapter and wonder why you didn't know I had gotten Sprocket or Hot Head etc.

This keeps things on par with a true blind playthrough.  I don't know what is coming next and neither do you...it makes things more interesting.  I'll probably complete all the levels and then go back to pick up missed items, but this strategy may vary...

Similarly, if anyone is directly opposed to "taking things as they come," fear not!  My ultimate plan is to beat the game and then record a walkthrough in Nightmare Mode.  Since you have to defeat Kaos to unlock Nightmare Mode, I figured the best thing to do was make this one fun and free-styled and kind of stick to business on the other...Hopefully everyone will like it.

Nonetheless, enough rambling...Let's get started with the playthrough!

 I will basically embed the vids here on the blog (they will almost all link to this post), and I will have a bit more detail here than in the description.

Stay tuned as I will post the videos here...I'll also put a priority on answering questions posted here on the blog over YouTube, Twitter, Google +, and Facebook.

It's the End of the Track Skylander!
This drill-bot is on the scene!

with a robo attack
'cause you're messing with the wrong machine!

Hold on, time out, Skylander.
There's something up with my drill!
But you better watch out,
you'll be down for the count
when I show you my smashing skills!

What did you do, Skylander!?
You've just won the final round!
I can't keep the beat
and I'm feeling defeat,
and my systems are all shutting down...
