Just one quick update this week.
Late this week we started to experience some problems with Skylanders Battlecast. In particular we could not get into a match with people on our Friends List.
Activision has been made aware of the problem and is working on a fix. There is currently no ETA for a solution though.
UPDATE: About four hours after posting this video, Battlecast started working again.
Story and VS Mode still work and you can still collect your free cards daily, but you just can't play people directly through the Friends List.
In the meantime I encourage you to check out SCLBattles.com to get your Battlecast fix.
