In all honesty, I sort of wish I had done every level with a blog post...kind of like I did with Wii Fit Plus...I just like the text side of things I guess. This level, particularly getting to Kaos, wasn't too bad, but deals an amazing quantity of XP. I am actually planning on taking some new Skylanders (No upgrades) thru the paces here and see what they can do in terms of "levelling up."
I had really wanted to get a few Skylanders up to Level 26 on Heroics (note that is entirely separate from "Level 10" that your health maxes out at) and then fully upgraded etc. The fact of the matter is that would have taken an insane amount of time and I didn't want to keep folks waiting for this...
I wish there would have been a "dark" version of all the Skylanders to contend with, but that is a minor complaint. If you look past the "weapon master glitch" this is truly a great game. I know it is geared towards kids, but I don't care. I'm in my late 20s and loved the game. The options you have in terms of selecting a Skylander etc really make the game have a lot of replay imo.
I am about to make these 2 videos go live on YouTube, but wanted to post it here on the blog...which I prefer over all other mediums. So, enjoy...I'll make them "public" and post them to Facebook and Twitter shortly.
Skylanders: Spryro's Adventure Part 76: Chapter 22: Lair of Kaos Part 1 of 2
Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure Part 77: Chapter 22 Lair of Kaos Part 2 of 2
I kind of had to kill the audio early on Part 77 during the credits. The last thing I wanted was to loose my commentary on the boss fight with Kaos because I was waiting to make a closing comment. The audio on Part 77 is a little behind, but not enough to make a huge difference. The boss fight goes on for quite some time, so be prepared for that!
I let the camera roll all the way thru the credits and to the final cut scene with the gang at the Core of Light. Flynn's commentary at the end is great and anytime you go from 0-100 on a game, I like to have the end stuff captured.
I am by no means done with Skylanders. There is still Dragon's Peak and a few more characters to colllect. I might also record the time goals...we'll wait and see. I definitely recommend you check out Skylanders and give it a shot...the game is a lot of fun and has stake in a very promising future!
