What the hell they're already making a third one? I didn't even know the second one came out already. This is just disgusting, really. Skylanders is already as saturated as CoD. Spyro was the main game I played when I was younger - all three of the original PS1 titles. Each new Skylanders game just makes me more and more sad. This series barely has anything to do with Spyro at all.

The idea is neat, but you HAVE to have the new Portal of Power. I might be out at that point.
