• E3 2016 Is About To Kick Off!

    by Dan | Jun 03, 2016

    Yo, K-Zoners!

    E3 — AKA the Electronic Entertainment Expo — is the biggest week in the gaming calendar and it all kicks off in Los Angeles on June 14! E3 is known for revealing the most mind-blowing gaming news each year and we reckon this year will be no different. Check out my top three most-wanted E3 reveals!

    1. The Legend of Zelda WiiU – we’ve been hanging for this one so long that it feels like it might never come out but…this is the year! It’s gotta be. We hope.

    2. The Nintendo NX
    – Nintendo’s new console is rumoured to be something totally new, and not a replacement for either the 3DS or the WiiU.

    3. New LEGO Dimensions playsets – we’re hoping for something totally out there, like LEGO Mario but we’d totally be stoked if they just add Harry Potter or Star Wars to the LEGO Dimensions crew!

    In other news it’s been revealed the insane-looking No Man’s Sky has been delayed from releasing in June until August so the game-makers can polish it a bit more. We’re having a No Man’s Cry about the delay but we’d always rather a game was perfect and came out a bit later than studios rush to put out something unfinished!

  • Plants VS Zombies: Garden Warfare 2

    by Dan | Feb 19, 2016

    Wassup K-Zoners.


    Big question. Are you a plant? Or a zombie? It’s a very important question because Plants VS Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 is coming out on Feb 23 and I can’t wait to get involved.

    Plants VS Zombies Garden Warfare 2

    I was a fan of the first game in the series and there are a bunch of new customisable characters and sticker packs to unlock, though I hope it doesn’t take as long to level up this time around.

    So, who’s keen? And which side do you wanna end up on?



  • LEGO Star Wars Game Rumours

    by Dan | Feb 02, 2016

    Star Wars LEGO game

    What’s up K-Zoners, it’s ya boy Dan with a juicy gaming rumour to spice up your week!


    Hot off the gaming grill is the news that an Italian gaming shop just listed LEGO Star Wars Episode VII as an upcoming release! This pretty much confirms the most obvious secret in videogames, that the LEGO Star Wars games are going to keep on coming out, but who cares how obvious it might be, it’s gonna be awesome to roll around as LEGO BB8 and a whole stack of new LEGO Star Wars legends! Our Italian is pretty sketchy but it looks like it might even be coming out in May!


    So, who’s keen for more LEGO Star Wars action? Or has Disney Infinity scratched your Star Wars Episode VII itch? Tell me in the comments below!


    K-Zone ya later, legends!

  • Yo-Kai Watch Gaming

    by Dan | Jan 21, 2016

    What’s up K-Zoners!


    Having a sweet and gametastic holiday? Did you grab the February issue of K-Zone yet? Some incredibly scientific and obviously super-intelligent dude is talking all about it in the new episode of K-Zone TV, not sure about his fashion choices though to be honest. Check it out!


    Anywho, I spent most of the holidays SMASHING my way through Yo-Kai Watch and I’m really enjoying it. Can I just say though that the boss battle against Sproink was the hardest one I have faced yet and he was supposed to be the easiest! Also, don’t freak out and think the game is glitched like I did if you try to get into the bathhouse and the door is locked – it just means you need to go back at night.

    So what have you guys been playing? And what are you hyped for this year? My most-hyped has gotta be the Wii U Zelda game that seems like it will NEVER come out. If you’re reading this Nintendo, plz halp!



  • Summer Holiday Gaming

    Splatoon Christmas gaming



    It’s me Dan! It’s almost Christmas and you know what that means, time for some epic holiday gaming sessions! I’m finally going to try and 100% LEGO Dimensions, finally going to unlock the last of Splatoon’s high-level weapons, finally going to play Disney Infinity’s Force Awakens play-set and FINALLY, going to play Skylanders with the special Christmas edition Missile-Tow Dive-Clops!


    What are you guys playing during the school holidays? Tell me in the comments below!

  • Disney Infinity Star Wars Play Set!

    by Dan | Nov 20, 2015

    Force Awakens Disney Infinity

    Yo K-Zoners!

    Disney Infinity - Star Wars: The Force Awakens Play Set comes out the same day as the Star Wars: Force Awakens movie (December 17), which means I have absolutely NO idea what is going to happen in it.

    You would think being K-Zone editor means they would trust me with those kind of epic secrets, but no dice. The story of
    Episode VII is locked down tighter than the NERF locker at K-Zone HQ

    So anyway, all I can do is gaze at the sweet Infinity figurines and try to decide which one is my fave. 

    Let me know which one you’re hanging to get your hands on in the comments below!

    Peace out!


  • Weekend Gaming!

    Disney Infinity Play Set

    K-Zoners! Guess what I’m doing this weekend?

    If you said playing Disney Infinity 3.0: Rise Against The Empire you’re a total mind-reading Jedi legend!

    Yep, I’m taking it to Tatooine, Hoth and Endor and getting my Star Wars on! I’ve been playing pretty solidly and I’ve got a few fave things I wanted to share with you.

    Firstly, how awesome are the Tauntauns?! Even in a game that lets you take a TIE fighter for a spin I just keep coming back to the Tauntauns, they just crack me up so much when you start sprinting!

    I also LOVE melee combat playing as Princess Leia, she fights like a ninja AND she has a blaster. Too cool.

    My other fave thing is bulls-eyeing womp rats in my T-16 Skyhopper! I could do that mission ALL DAY!

    What are you guys playing this weekend? Let me know in the comments below!

  • LEGO Games and Skylanders News!

    by Dan | Oct 08, 2015

    Whoa, a while between posts here K-Zoners! My bad, sooooo many games coming out!

    The last couple of weeks Skylanders Superchargers landed on my desk, PLUS LEGO Dimensions AND I’ve been playing Minecraft again on my phone because I started a new world.

    LEGO Dimensions Dan's Gaming Blog

    So – Skylanders…it’s awesome, obviously and my favourite Supercharged combo so far is Crypt Crusher and Fiesta. Check out my unboxing vids if you wanna see what they look like!

    LEGO Dimensions I haven’t played quite as much of yet but the first few levels have been AMAZING and my fave minifig outside the starter pack has gotta be Benny from The LEGO Movie. What a legend! It’s going to be a massive few months for LEGO games too because LEGO Marvel Avengers is just around the corner!

    What games are you guys hanging to play this Christmas holidays? Let me know in the comments and yep – you guessed it – still playing Splatoon too!

  • Disney Infinity 3.0

    by Dan | Aug 28, 2015

    Yo K-Zoners!,


    First things first, shout out to my first three commenters EVER – whattup to Brandon, AJ and Cooper! Stoked to hear what you’re are playing! I’ll definitely be covering LEGOMinecraft and Mario goodness in upcoming posts but this week I’ve been smashing my way through Disney Infinity 3.0. Aaaaaaand….


    It’s. So. Good.


    I’ve been mainly playing with starter pack figurines Anakin and Ahsoka (and my lookalike Obi-Wan) and one thing has stood out above all else -  the amazing combat.


    Juggling a droid into the air with Force powers before slicing and dicing with a lightsaber has made all my Jedi dreams come true.

    (My fave Infinity figurines plus a sneak peek at the theme of next month’s K-Zone!)


    Who else is pumped for Infinity 3.0? And what characters are you really excited to play as? Let me know!


    Oh yeah, and I’m still playing Splatoon too in case you were wondering!




  • Time For A New Game!

    by Dan | Aug 17, 2015

    Yo K-Zoners!

    It’s me Dan. You might remember me from such things as being editor of K-Zone magazine and being a massive gamer!


    I’ve started a brand new gaming blog that lives on and to kick it off let me tell you what I’m playing at the moment. Splatoon. Then a little bit more Splatoon. Then after I’m done playing Splatoon I play some Splatoon! Yup, I am OBSESSED. Quick games, stacks of maps and heaps of fun. Did I mention Splatoon?


    So what are you playing? Let me know in the comments and if there’s anything you want me to blog about, let me know - this is a blog about all things gaming!
