Still Looking For Kaos? I Know Where To Find It!


Hey Addicts!

It’s another lazy Sunday here in chilly Ohio. I hope you all are enjoying the last day of your weekend before you have to go back to school and work. I know some of you have been frantically looking for the Kaos Trap. They are seemingly nowhere to be found besides eBay and Amazon for outrageous prices. Well that may have just changed for just a moment. Is seems that Walgreens stores have gotten some stock of Wave 3 Trap Team traps and guess who is there? That’s right KAOS! So if you still are in need of this villainously elusive trap head on down to your local Walgreens store to see if you can still find him in stock.

I just grabbed one myself along with a Snake Life and Winged Water Trap as of 2 days ago. Sorry I’m just saying something about it I have been busy working on a few new websites and some music projects as well. I’m not sure how well stocked the shelves will be as I got the last of each trap on the shelf when I made my purchase. It maybe a good idea to call around to see what is still available, if they can hold the items you want, or possibly place an order to the warehouse for you (can’t hurt to try). Hopefully some of you get lucky and can get some goodies. If you do tell us about what you find and how your experience was with hunting. Please be sure to show us some love on our social networks we love to hear from other Portal Masters if you need any help just drop us a message and we will be sure to get back to you as soon as we can. Happy Hunting! Until next time next time “Catch You On The SKYSIDE!”

Well, I just got an email a bit ago informing me that Activision is holding a 3 week contest in celebration of Skylanders Trap Team Tablet Starter Packs being added to online and retail Apple stores. All you have to do is take a photo or record a video of you playing Trap Team and post it to the Official Skylanders Twitter page (@SkylandersGame) with the hashtag(s) #TrapAndPlaySweeps #Skylanders and you are set.

The Skylanders Trap Team Tablet version of the video game is a fully playable version of the game available on the latest tablet designs such as iPad, Kindle Fire, and other Android based tablets. Meaning for the first time us Portal Masters can take the same version played on our favorite console with us anywhere and all our saved data (stats etc.) will be go with us! So say you are at home playing Skylanders and you have to go to Grandma’s you don’t have to wait until you get back home or pack up your console, figures, controllers, etc. Just grab you pad and go because you can play this version of the game with or without using the physical toys. Can you say EPIC!!!!

Can You Believe Those Skylanders Losers Actually Caved In to My Demands?

SANTA MONICA, Calif. – SEPTEMBER 15, 2014 – Attention foolish human fools! Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI), is officially announcing an all new diabolical gameplay mode in honor of me, Emperor Kaos, the most infamously evil villain in all of Skylands! ¬†In my glorious “Kaos Doom Challenge,” sniveling Portal Masters like you can feebly battle through increasingly difficult waves of my personal minions using your ridiculous army of Skylanders.


And since you obviously won’t stand a chance, I, Kaos, will graciously allow you to build defensive towers and battle my fearsome allies using any of your Skylanders from your entire collection. However, when you bumbling Portal Masters utterly fail to progress past my hoards of evil underlings, the “Mystery Box of Doom” will be opened – which will then incomprehensibly spit out gigantic villains that will completely destroy you! And because I am both benevolent and merciful, I will even let you fools use any of your pitiful Trapped Villains to fight them.


And, should any of you so-called “journalists” need an official quote from me -BEHOLD! ¬†“A recent evil study of a thousand trolls revealed that nine out of ten agree that I am the most powerful and impressive evil doer to have ever conquered Skylands.¬† Naturally, I had every tenth one banished to my “Kaos Doom Challenge” to test the effectiveness of my 100 waves of ultimate evil doom – and they were never heard from again. So let’s just say EVERYONE agrees – I am the most powerful and impressive evil doer ever.”


And for those of you who absolutely cannot wait for your horribly inevitable destruction, the Skylanders Trap Team Starter Pack will be available on a bunch of seemingly random days in October (October 5th in North America, October 10th in Europe and October 2ndin Australia to be precise) on the following exceptionally awesome platforms: Nintendo’s Wii‚ĄĘ system and Nintendo’s Wii U‚ĄĘ system, a variety of iPad¬ģ, Kindle Fire and Android tablets; Xbox One and Xbox 360 games and entertainment systems from Microsoft; PlayStation¬ģ4 system; PlayStation¬ģ3 system. A different, unique adventure also will be available on the Nintendo 3DS‚ĄĘ hand-held system.


Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a world to conquer.¬† I look forward to crushing your spirits. With loathing and disgust.


OMG! I am guessing this is the Kaos Mode we all have been hearing about. Check out the video of some gameplay footage showing off the Kaos Doom Challenge.
