Have you ever heard of "Toy Story", "Finding Nemo", or maybe "Monster's Inc"? You maybe know these as Pixar movies. The cool things about these type of movies are that, they are awesome for the kids to watch, but have humerous parts in them that usually only adults will understand. Therefore making it a great movie for chidren, Adults, and even Older folks. That is what the "Pixar" Effect means.
Kingsisle has used the "Pixar" effect in both Wizard101 and now Pirate101 and will probably continue to do so in both games, and future games. Usually you see other company's creating games for certain generations, for example maybe a Mario game usually is a great childrens game for the Wii. Another example would be Modern Warfare or Halo targeted for the Mature audience. The great thing about Wizard101, Pirate101 and other games that use the "Pixar" Effect is that it opens the door to all generation groups allowing them to all enjoy and play the game together. This is great for Family's and Grandparents who would like to find a hobby to play together and just have an awesome time!
Gamesnews.com has recently had an interview with Kingsisle about Pirate101 that was released today on their site. You can read up more about the "Pixar Effect" and more on the article here. There are some hidden tidbits about Pirate101 that you can discover also! :) One of my favorite parts in the article is they say that the Frogfather character in Pirate101 has a voice similiar to Godfather type movies which will be awesome LOL. Cannot wait to try it out!
Thank you for stopping by and hopefully I will see you all soon in the skyways!
Happy and safe sailing everyone! Have an awesome 4th of July tomorrow!
