You can always tell it’s getting closer to the holidays when the year’s new Skylanders game launches its all-out assault on video game shelves. These days, Skylanders: SWAP Force‘s mega-sized starter pack boxes and action figure add-ons are taking up entire store walls. It’s the alpha dog of new game releases and is sure to be sapping your money away for months, especially if you have kids. Over in movie world, my favorite film of the year so far, the talky anti-romance Before Sunset, is fresh on home video, accompanied by The Internship and The Conjuring. One is the creation of the devil and the other is a mediocre comedy. Can you guess which is which? I also got my hands on the beast of a phone that is the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, which is basically a mega-powered tablet that (sorta) fits in your pocket.
