Like most people here, I'm a lifelong gamer; I'm also, more recently, a Los Angeles-based writer and pop culture critic. My work has appeared in MAD Magazine, on gaming websites around the web, and in indie comics that you've absolutely never heard of. In my spare time, I watch too much baseball, read too many comics, and drink too much beer. 'Super Mario World' is the greatest game ever made, and if you disagree, you're just wrong.
Skylanders SuperChargers might be made for kids, but its mix of platforming and vehicle-based gameplay – plus the Nintendo-exclusive characters – could drain the wallets of players both young and old alike.
