nintendo Holiday gift guide: Hobbit, Batman, Guardians of the Galaxy, more

Nintendo’s Amiibo toys and “Super Smash Bros. Wii U,” $12.99 per figure, $59.99 game: Here’s a secret about Nintendo’s Wii U: No other video game system is better suited for playing and partying with friends. The release this year of “Mario Kart 8” and “Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze” gave the system two solid entries for competitive silliness. And then came “Super Smash Bros. Wii U.” No other fighting game makes the act of bashing and kicking this approachable. Nintendo’s secret? It’s all in the characters. Forget the focus in the past on special movies, as “Super Smash Bros. Wii U” is all about bringing out the personalities of its characters, and it’s high time the company’s princesses got the chance to go wild on all the creatures who keep kidnapping them. What’s more, by making the game compatible with toy figurines (Nintendo calls these figures Amiibos), players can tailor and train a fighting machine. Or if they’re not interested in that, at least have something that looks great on the shelf. (Nintendo)

This 10-12 hour narrative is as fun to play as it is to watch someone play it, appealing to comic fans and those who simply dig a good crime procedural. It’s also perfect for those who aren’t dedicated video game players, as Telltale’s titles are essentially choose-your-own adventure tales. (Telltale Games)

lbp3 fantasia Holiday gift guide: Hobbit, Batman, Guardians of the Galaxy, more

“Little Big Planet 3” and “Fantasia,” $59.99 each: One year after release of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 there remains a dearth of quality family games for each system. “Little Big Planet 3” and “Fantasia” are two worthy offerings that encourage participation from multiple players but also stand alone as sharp single-player experiences. The emphasis is on humor in “Little Big Planet 3,” as players run and jump around a world that they can paper with stickers. Creating your own levels is encouraged, and though building a universe can be a challenge, it’s most fun to not go it alone here. “Fantasia” tinkers with game structure well, but here it’s the ability for players to twist and stretch a song. The Xbox game requires Kinect, as players will swipe and wave at the screen as if they’re Sorcerer Mickey. It’s abstract, goofy and brings a rainbow-like magic to the art of the remix.

“Little Big Planet 3” and “Fantasia,” $59.99 each:  One year after release of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 there remains a dearth of quality family games for each system. “Little Big Planet 3” and “Fantasia” are two worthy offerings that encourage participation from multiple players but also stand alone as sharp single-player experiences. The emphasis is on humor in “Little Big Planet 3,” as players run and jump around a world that they can paper with stickers. Creating your own levels is encouraged, and though building a universe can be a challenge, it’s most fun to not go it alone here. “Fantasia” tinkers with game structure well, but here it’s the ability for players to twist and stretch a song. The Xbox game requires Kinect, as players will swipe and wave at the screen as if they’re Sorcerer Mickey. It’s abstract, goofy and brings a rainbow-like magic to the art of the remix. (PlayStation; Microsoft)

“Morning Glories Vol. 1 Compendium,” $59.99: This series, from Nick Spencer and Joe Eisma, follows six brilliant new students at Morning Glory Academy — an institution that appears to be a prestigious boarding school, but is actually part of something much more sinister.

This 1,000-page-plus volume collects the first 38 issues. (Image Comics)

Batbot also brings lights and more than 100 sound effects and phrases into action. Requires six AA batteries for Batbot and two AAA batteries for the remote control. Ages 3 and up. (Imaginext)
