Spyro Reignited Trilogy (PS4/XBO)

  • @hazz3r

    You are correct. It was also a uniquely Spyro quality. Very few games felt anything like Spyro did. Spyro was also the only game I can recall that has a variance of ways in which it manipulates the simple: jump, charge, glide, fire mechanics. For example, in your video with the archways that speed Spyro into a super charge where now you're controlling a very fast version of Spyro that requires perfection to complete the course (3D Sonic could learn something from this tbh). Or how sometimes you can become invincible to traverse hazards. I hope none of this feels easy to do in the new version.

    My goodness I love Spyro so much.

  • Look. At. This. Can't believe how pretty and alive the game looks. And the dragons, everyone now a unique personality. Wow. :)

  • This stands to possibly be my game of the generation. I can't wait to play the Yetti level (Colossus?) from Spyro 2.

  • The soundtrack can be changed between the remastered one and the original. :)

  • first Nintendo Uk accidentally leaks it now the official Spyro Uk website too?

    oh my god those british devs are terrible at keeping secrets LOL

    Yes! I was really worried about this.

  • @sentinel-beach

    Don't know how I feel about the recreation of that level actually. It used to be darker if I recall correctly. Looks kinda bright here.

  • Oh man! There is a little bit of blasphomy going on with this remake. Listen to the monk guy at 1:00 in this video:

    These monk guys are low key what I wanted to see the most and they messed with his voice and look. Not enough Why ay ay ay ay Why ay ay ay ay:

  • An hour-long Spyro panel from Comic Con. This was cool. Fans, check it out!

  • I hate to derail or be the bearer of bad news, but Activison screwed up.

    I decided to cancel my pre-order, because I can't support shitty practices like this. Well, fuck you Activsion! I'll never buy another game from you ever again. That was the last straw. If anyone wants to still buy the compilation, I won't hold it against you, but I ain't buying something with false advertisement.

  • I juat don't see the big problem with this. Almost ever game this gen has done the same, they just don't explicitly announce it on the packaging.
    Your discs are really nothing more than authetication keys.
    Getting the trilogy, and getting it digital, because holy shit who cares.

  • @el-shmiablo I and many others do. I know other companies are guilty of this (Capcom when it comes to porting games on the Switch), but it's the principle. It's not that hard to put three games on a Blu-ray disc. The fact that Activision is treating everyone like thundering dumb-asses is another point of contention. I shouldn't have to log in to the internet to play a single-player game. I played plenty of games this generation that does not require it, so Activision has no excuses. It's one thing to update a game; it's another thing to lie upfront about physical copies when only one of the games are on the disc, and the others are digital downloads. Negating the point of getting a physical copy.

  • Or two discs. That was normal two generations ago. Why do publishers think this can't be done now?

  • Because it's been done to save money, not because of any technical limitations.

    When it comes to distribution of this magnitude, saving pennies on one unit can add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars.

  • @hazz3r Oh, I'm well aware, which just pisses me off even more.

  • Well, looks like i'm waiting for a digital sale before i'm buying this. Not comfortable with supporting practices like this, but i really want this game.

  • Well damn, the release date has been changed. The new date is now November 13th. We were so close already...

  • I wonder what they've found that's caused the game to need delaying another 2 months. It can't be something insignificant.

    And it can't be them adding the games onto the Master. Without a doubt all the discs have been printed already and are just sitting in warehouses somewhere.

  • @hazz3r
    I'm leaning towards getting all 3 games on the master, or adding something into the final product that was planned as DLC , like playing as Crash in the Spyro games, or some extra level.

    Well they aren't getting my money. I'm not going to be screwed over, not when I've been used to a better standard all my life.
