Wish List: Disney Infinity.

With any crossover multi-character game, everyone has their own wish lists. Sure, some of them make sense, others are fan wishes, and others… and just plain crazy and make zero sense whatsoever.

Having recently pre-ordered Disney Infinity for the 360, and interacting on their Facebook page (where the site mods are very interactive and responsive), I have my own ideas of what I would like to see come to the game as this as being touted as the “future” of Disney gaming, essentially replacing stand-alone titles (mixed feelings on this), and becoming Disney’s most ambitious gaming project to date.

Some things simply don’t sit well with me after Microsoft’s show, even with the 180 they did after being blasted by every gaming publication and critic for their “It’s our way or up yours” attitude. It’s a little frustrating as I’ve really enjoyed the quality of games on the 360. I just can’t support them this time, especially with Microsoft being so buddy-buddy with the NSA, which I don’t agree with, nor do I agree with the “always on” Kinect that swears that it’s only listening for you to say “Kinect On”.
