Toys to Life Games
Kaleb talks DIsney Infinity 3.0, Skylanders Superchargers, and LEGO Dimensions from the perspective of his 6 year old.
He picks LEGO Dimensions as the only one he would play if he had to pick one.
He likes Dimensions because of the puzzles and that it is LEGO.
He likes Skylanders Superchargers because you can play with vehicles, race, and do other stuff not seen before in a Skylanders game.
He likes Disney Infinity 3.0 because you can play Star Wars.
Kaleb talks about the cash grab with all three titles and which one seems to be the worst.
