#KidletBros: First Impressions of Disney Infinity 3.0

This Sunday, BIL and his girlfriend surprised the KidletBros with Disney Infinity 3.0. The Saga Bundle (w/ Boba Fett!) and a bunch of figures to get them started – it’s their birthday and Christmas present from them.

As you’ve probably heard, Star Wars: Episode VII is starting to film, and the main cast list has been announced. And in that list, there’s only one new woman (the other is Carrie Fisher). What gives?

Why I won’t be playing the new Lara Croft game.

Note: This post still gets a fair amount of traffic, so I wanted to note that at the end of this post (and the related posts) there’s an update. Back when I was in college, everyone had Tomb Raider. I was no exception. Not to mention- I liked Lara Croft. I am a huge Indiana
