Review and Giveaway- Plants vs. Zombies : Garden Warfare 2plantsvszom

Recently my family had the chance to check out Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. Total thumbs up from this gamer family! From youngest to oldest, we loved it! I have a feeling there will be many hours, many fun times ahead! Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 is an incredible game that brings the crazy cartoon world of the Plants vs Zombies franchise to the multiplayer shooter genre. The game expands on the ideas of the outstanding first game, offering new classes to play as with awesome abilities. These new classes can call in giant robotic mech that can attack foes for a short time. There are also new gamemodes in Garden Warfare 2, and these modes separate the series from the many multiplayer shooters that are out there. The game truly stands out as a unique experience unlike any other. Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 proves that the multiplayer franchise is here to stay, and it is better than ever.

Overall, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 is a unique multiplayer experience with a wide variety of awesome gamemodes, new weapons, and new classes! The game takes the ideas of the first entry and reworks and expands on them to perfection. The game also includes an all-new single player mode, which can be played from the perspective of the Plants or the Zombies! There is also an extremely open map where players can explore. The single player also serves as a great way to get the hang of things before diving into the frantic and fun multiplayer action.Plants vs. Zombies™ Garden Warfare 2 (3)

The game also looks absolutely stunning on the Xbox One system. running at 60 frames per second. The environments are all extremely detailed, and the game meets the graphical standard set by EA’s other titles like the Battlefield franchise and the stunning Star Wars: Battlefront! Garden Warfare 2 is a very fulfilling sequel, offering more of the content we all love as gamers while also bringing loads of new content to the franchise! In Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2,there is something for everyone. I absolutely love the game, and I can’t wait to see where the franchise goes in the future.

Skylanders SuperChargers Races Onto the Scene This Fall!

Skylanders SuperChargers

The latest Skylanders game has been announced, and it looks INCREDIBLE: this fall, clear the road, air, and sea for the vehicle-focused Skylanders SuperChargers! We got a special look at the upcoming game at an exclusive event hosted by MomTrends and Activision– read on to learn everything there is to know about the newest installment in the Skylanders series!18413709972_73c73fc174_z

As you know, we’re BIG Skylanders fans here, and as a family who’s played through the four previous chapters in the Skylanders adventure (the 2011 debut hit Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure & its sequels Skylanders Giants, Skylanders Swap Force, and Skylanders Trap Team), we’re thrilled to check out the latest additions to the franchise. But just what is Skylanders SuperChargers?


Releasing on September 20 of this year, Skylanders SuperChargers will focus on a brand new type of interactive Skylanders toy: vehicles! Yes, all of your favorite Skylanders (plus 20 new SuperChargers!) will be able to drive, dive, and fly across Skylands as they explore the world in twenty new land, water, and air vehicles. The cars (and planes, and submarines, and more!) each pair up with one of the new SuperCharger characters (like the Giants, Swap Force, and Trap Team characters that lent their names to previous games)– though any character can drive, when the vehicle and its matching SuperCharger are on the portal together, both will receive a supercharged upgrade, making them more powerful overall.


As always, the game will release with a Starter Pack featuring the new portal and three Skylanders figures– this year, those three figures are the trailblazing dune buggy Hot Streak, its partner SuperCharger (the robotic-looking flaming dragon Spitfire), and fan favorite Stealth Elf, who’s been given an upgrade to SuperCharger status as well! For more about the Starter Pack, check out our sneak peek at the bundle!


The game will also be available in a new digital Portal Owner’s Pack– similar to the Portal Owner’s Pack from Skylanders Giants, this new edition will allow you to use the previous game’s portal (in this case, the one from Skylanders Trap Team), but unlike the previous Portal Owner’s Pack, the Skylanders SuperChargers one will feature a digital download of the game rather than a physical disc, and digital versions of the starter pack characters as well.

Skylanders SuperChargers will be available on September 20, 2015 on Xbox One, Playstation 4, WiiU, Xbox 360, PS3, and iOS (and an alternate experience of the game will also be available on Wii and 3DS.)
