V I understand that, however, the U.B. Funkeys were a computer only thing weren't they? What was it even about?
#11458 Kevin16 19:18:11 10/09/2014
People.... Please remember that Skylanders did not start this ''toy to life'' thing... it was U.B Funkeys.
#11457 shadowstarcat 23:25:40 09/09/2014
V Yeah, i guess so. Whenever i look at infinity I just go 'pfft no originality' or 'jeez ripoff much' I mean, ONE 'toys come to life' series is enough. Infinity's... not worth it in my opinion.
#11456 SkylandersGamer 13:40:01 09/09/2014
V um Skylanders is still unique SSA made toys playable in a game SG made the
V toys light up SSF made the toys swappable and STT makes you bring cheaters from the game to a toy, Disney infinity just has the toys come to life so yeah Skylanders is still unique

So I've recently bought this game again for the PS3, and it's not too bad, the combat is a bit glitch with the hit detection, other than that, it's been okay for the most part. I've gotten up to the Dragon City, and I'm just about to head off to the ramparts, I know this is where it begins to get a bit tricky, I haven't played it in a while though, been busy, but I should get back to it soon.

V I agree, LoS is definitely the most suspenseful series Spyro has to offer. I don't care what people say about the reboots, however they all deserve respect in their own rights. First ever spyro games have that simple yet fun gameplay which anyone can enjoy (which is quite rare in itself), LoS spyro has an amazing storyline and graphics (don't get me started on the graphics smilie) And Skylanders 1 - 4 is unique (until flippin' infinity came along) and well made in the sense that YOU CAN PUT TOYS ON A PORTAL AND USE THEM IN GAME! I mean, break through in technology peeps!

See, all these games have their good points (DotD smilie) and bad points (EtD) but thay should all be respected in their own rights, as i said smilie

Thx for bothering to read this... so... long... smilie This just came to my head cause there are a lot of dissers out there.

This was the last EVER Spyro Game.
I am not against Skylanders but Skylanders is an awesome series with Spyro in it.
#11452 shadowstarcat 06:02:10 10/08/2014
V No probs smilie Always remember what the story line is and you can't go wrong
#11451 cowpowa23 16:20:02 09/08/2014
Thank you, shadow.
SkylandersGamer, no. Just no.
In this universe there is only one purple dragon at a time. Period. xP
#11450 shadowstarcat 04:28:40 09/08/2014
Guys cynder is NOT purple. She APPEARS to be purple cause she would look weird actually black. Also In Avalar, the hermit calls her

"You are the black dragon, Cynder, The terror of the skies, the dark masters puppet" (chap 3, avalar)

Also, from A new beginning.
"The prophecy foretold of a purple dragon, a dragon born only once every ten generations" (ignitus)
#11449 SkylandersGamer 00:00:19 09/08/2014
V well maybe they were gonna do something with Cynder being a purple dragon but didn't do it, and how can their be only one purple dragon theirs had to be more
#11448 cowpowa23 23:41:15 08/08/2014
VNot in these games, no.
There can only be one purple dragon.
#11447 SkylandersGamer 19:07:58 07/08/2014
V their can be more then on purple dragon
#11446 Greeble 12:44:28 07/08/2014
How is it Cynder went from black to purple?

I thought according to the games, Spyro was a rare purple dragon.

They must not be rare after all.
