I can't wait for this Disney Infinity shit to just die. It's a money factory and I feel terrible for the parents.

I have a 6 yr old girl. For Christmas, we wanted to get her something like skylanders but with more "female friendly" characters. We went to the toy store with that in mind. We walked out with the worst fucking game I have ever played in my life!!! Oh. My. God. How this piece of shit game sucks!

In all fairness, you are not the target demographic. How does your daughter like it?

Never played it, although I we do play skylanders. I always liked the toy design, but good to know the game itself sucks.

First one was great.

Second one was warmed over shit.

Third one I didn't even want to try because of a lack of promises to fix the things they did wrong.

And I don't give a shit about them going "well, you wouldn't want Mr. Incredible in Pirates of the--" NO. FUCK YOU. Infinity is right in the goddamn name. INFINITE POSSIBILITIES. The only restrictions on crossover should've been car-style characters not able to be used in adventure playsets, but everything else should be fair game.

Most absurd shit.

All that Disney Infinity seems to be to me is a blatant get rich quick scheme for Disney - despite them all ready being a multi billion or maybe trillion dollar company. The entire thing has been ripped off from other games and seriously lacks innovation. So as well as Skylanders and other games now they are ripping off Splattoon and making it fee-to-play. Why would anyone want that shite?

Because it's a scheme designed from the ground up to appeal to children and their obsessive need to collect things combined with their love for simplistic and visually outrageous video games.

Disney is laughing all the way to the bank. We get to sell them a game AND a shitload of toys!

Walt Disney (the founder himself) was an FBI informant who ratted on any political subverts in Hollywood. http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/1993-05-06/news/9305060165_1_walt-disney-disney-file-hoover

Rightfully so. Something like 90% of convicted communists spies were jews.

So? Splatoon is very similar to De Blob, which came out way earlier. Nintendo isn't that original either. Disney Infinity came out in 2013, and Nintendo Amiibos came out a year later.

That's what I was thinking, until I saw that they named it Squid Wars.

That actually had me wondering if the whole thing was just a tongue-in-cheek homage to Splatoon and not an actual thing they're doing because, I mean, come on, there's no way they could pull that wool over anyone's eyes.

De Blob was a good game but while it shared the dynamic of "color everything" it wasn't the same mechanics at all . De Blob was almost like a platformer mixed with Katamari Damacy.

Splatoon (and this game) are teams of players shooting ink out of guns to cover an area.

if you would retool de Blob to be team based multiplayer VS, how different would it be from Splatoon?

DI is still pretty much a attempt to get in on the cash-grab that is the skylander franchise.

They didn't even change the theme away from Squids and ink.

Jesus, they aren't even pretending. Didn't even retheme it away from squids or ink or anything. Did they copy the theme song too?

[–] squiremarcus 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago  (edited ago)

it doesnt need to make ink it just needs to swim in it, the ink comes from the gun

Edit:also they could have gotten creative and made them aliens.

I mean Disney Infinity itself is just a rip-off of Microsoft's Project Spark.

I don't know, if you say that then Project Spark is a ripoff of EA's Create which is a ripoff of LittleBigPlanet.

I don't understand - of all the mainstream games to blatantly lift ideas from, why pick one of the only successes of one Nintendo's poorest selling consoles? Is Splatoon really that big?

[–] Fambida 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

You know, I haven't played it myself, but judging from the threads I see on the chans, Splatoon really IS that big. People seem to love that shit like it's the second coming of Jesus handing out hookers and blow.

It's pretty genius if you consider it has the mechanics of a shooter, but is mass-market and child friendly. Nintendo has always been pretty brilliant in that appeal and accessibility to move products. Disney tries for the same market...

I'm just waiting for a splatoon style game mode for TF2. That shit looks fun as hell but I'm not buying a console just for it.

I havent even played Splatoon, and I can clearly see that this is a ripoff
