IS MARVEL’S NEWEST FILM HERO COMING TO DISNEY INFINITY 3.0?

There’s a lot of figures already announced for the third iteration of Disney Infinity, much the same way there was when the Marvel centric 2.0 arrived last fall (someone didn’t spend close to $300 in one day, not anyone whose name rhymes with Flair Barrell…). Of all the figures arriving though, so far they’ve only announced two from…

REVIEW: FANTASTIC FOUR: FLAME ON (GAME BOY ADVANCE)

It’s easy to be pessimistic about playing a handheld version of a console game on far superior hardware, as most of the time the handheld game will fail to reach anywhere near the quality of its console counterpart. That’s not always the case though: X2: Wolverine’s Revenge, Thor: God of Thunder and Batman: The Brave and the Bold are easily…
