That said...check back later today as I'll likely have a slew of info up on the next installment! You can also check my site here AND the Skylander Club Forum (http://www.skylanderclub.com) for more info throughout the day (keep in mind I work a real job and this is a side-hobby).
Anyway here is the video...
What I Would Like to See in Skylanders 6
Is it long...yeah, but what did you expect? I have to crank this stuff out late at night (4 AM now) and I am working with a really badly stubbed toe (good news, I don't think I broke it, haha).
So here are some bullet points, obviously the video will expand on these:
-Elemental Areas are Meaningful
-Central Focus on Levels and Boss Battles
-Maintain Training Ground
--Enemy Spawn Button/Simulator
-Include Battlecat Card
-1 of Whatever Required available AT LAUNCH
-All Undead Characters available BEFORE Halloween
-Modest Line-up (16-24 maximum)
-Series 2 for Core Skylanders
--Warnado, Dino-Rang, Sunburn, Ghost Roaster/Chopper, Blades, Scorp, Star Strike etc.
-SuperCharger Treatment for any Returning Character
--Ie if we get another Spyro, give him a whole new move set etc.
-If Triple Packs really exist, make them just as available as Singles to help folks save money
-Hidden Chase Variants-Up End Consumer's Chance of Landing Specials
-Legendary, Nitro, Dark, etc all need Stat Boosts
-$9.99 target price, $12.99 max for "Gimmick-Landers"
-Maintain Eon's Elite $19.99 with frequent sales
-LightCore WITH full upgrade tree AND user activated flash bomb
Complete Set Bonus (Not in Video--See, Another Perk to Reading!)
-If you have ALL of a certain character, you should get an accolade, special hat, or stat boost...just a nice token of appreciation. So S1 Terrafin, S2 Terrafin, S3 Terrafin, and SuperCharged Terrafin = Accolades.
--I think this could also apply to full sets of Legendary or Dark Skylanders.
Additional Game Modes
--Must Have It. If not "in game" than stand alone entry
---Update Character Roster and add new arenas
--Single Player vs AI, Local, and Online
---Expanding past 2 Skylanders would be a future goal
---Imagine an online 4v4, or pitting the SSA Life vs SSA Undead..EPICNESS!!!!
Heroics or Quests
--Expand on Character's Lore
--Allow users to spend time and train/upgrade (statistically enhance) their favorite Skylanders
-Would Love to Play the Levels Again! What a surprise it would be! HD Darklight Crypt!!
-Traps and Vehicles...Any function?
-Removing established features...never makes people happy
--Ultimate Replay Value...Incentive for older characters
---Frequent Updates and DLC for new characters and arenas
--If the game takes off, it needs to be updated regularly by adding in new characters
---It would be okay to do so slowly as to not overwhelm players/collectors
--Battlecast needs to be on PC; tons of kids online (see Minecraft servers)
--Skylanders: Spyro's Universe
---I would love to see this, or something similar relaunched. Endless possibilities. It was a TON of FUN for anyone who missed out...and I had a killer Skylands if you wondered ;)
I could seriously go on...for hours. This is kind of a rushed video despite having been thinking about it for a while now...I added a few points of interest here that were not covered in the video. That said, let me know your thoughts and I will catch you back for insights on the REAL Skylanders 6!!
