This past week, the developers of Whispering Willow sent us a code for their title, and we jumped in right away. What you will find in Whispering Willow is a sometimes confusing, but generally straightforward, puzzle solving game. With a walkthrough, this could be completed in just a few hours.

Disney Infinity 3.0 launch this weekend in North America, and if my local Best Buy was an indication, the positive reception from many media outlets are sending people to stores to plunk down hundreds of dollars. By 6 PM local time, the Disney Infinity shelves were nearly empty as fans flocked to the store to grab as much as they could. Good work Disney!

When trolling around the show floor at Microsoft of Canada's X15 Xbox event in Toronto this week, I stopped in to play the new Skylanders game from Activision.
