Goated game.

Why would toys for bob work on a call of duty game in the first place?

ID: hncwie0

Activision made pretty much every good team work on either Warzone or remakes for Blizzard.

ID: hncyhq9

Activision does this thing where if you make a game that doesn't blow up the sales charts, they make you a COD support team.

ID: hndqshh

They really send them to the gulag lmao

ID: hncjm6q

they didnt have a choice really.

ID: hncidwi

Oh they worked on warzone lol

New Spyro game?

6 : Anonymous2021/12/05 19:24 ID: hncyjct

Uh huh... might.

good god just sell crash back to Sony

ID: hncd72z

Sony never owned Crash. And if they bought it it works just lay dormant like numerous other franchises they own.

ID: hncfcce

Yep. What studio exactly does Sony tap to make the Crash games?

ASOBI have Astro and are likely tripling down on that.

And the rest of the Sony studios either never made platformers or abandoned that genre generations ago. So, it means outsourcing... But what studio? Well, there's Sumo, but there is no telling if they're even available anymore, now that Tencent bought them (the pub may have bigger, internal plans for the studio).

Pretty slim pickings out there, because it's not like there is a massive calling for 3D platformers across the industry.

ID: hncsm4b

I doubt Sony would let Crash be dormant. Would be the perfect game for Team Asobi

ID: hnd7pim

How about Sony bring back Jak and Sly first before buying new IP

ID: hndc9jk

Well they did tease a new sly game in promotional material

Really enjoyed Crash 4, but I found strange it was so difficult (getting all the boxes): it looks aimed at children, and I myself played the originals on PS1/2, but sometimes I would just pause the game after some intense button gymnastics and wonder how was a kid going to fare with it.. or am I misremembering the difficulty of the old games?

ID: hncs9qr

I don't think it's aimed at kids. It seems aimed at people who grew up on crash. People who are now in their 20s and 30s.

ID: hnctcr4

And 40s

ID: hncqsk9

As someone who played Crash 1 as a kid on PS1, it was F'n hard from what I remember I never beat the game as a 'kid'. Only years later.

ID: hndfls7

I got the trilogy and tried crash 1 and it’s def really hard. Like original super Mario bros hard

ID: hnct6em

I must have been around ten/eleven when I played the trilogy, maybe that's the target range? I am confident I have only gotten better at games since then. But that was 22/21years ago, so it's very possible I just remember wrong.

ID: hnd0uch

Crash 1 had some tough, almost maliciously designed levels like the bridge ones. The remakes maintained this difficulty but also added in time trials which that first game was not designed for. This then lead to the difficulty of the Crash games being turned into a meme so the developers of Crash 4 decided to crank up the difficulty in that game instead of recognizing that the original trilogy was so hard because it was built on older design philosophies.

Yes, Crash 1 and some levels of the sequels were difficult but I don't think the appeal of the series was that it was some hardcore the-more-difficult-the-better experience. Some people just want to be a cool orange bandicoot running through colorful platforming levels collecting fruit.

ID: hnd58gx

I bought it thinking it would have been a good game to relax after a number of difficult ones I played back to back.. that didn't go as planned.

Enjoyed it a lot though, did all the tape challenges, still missing about half of the costumes, got to find two of the colored gems and then do the time trials.

But wouldn't recommend it to parents to buy for their kids, unless they really hate them, lol.

ID: hnd57ro

Crash has always been difficult though.

Maybe the low CoD Vanguard sales had a positive effect!

10 : Anonymous2021/12/05 17:06 ID: hnccex8

Are they going to finish the remaster trilogy? 🙂

ID: hncvrge

That was finished like 5 years ago.

ID: hndr5zq

Probably a poor choice of words, I assume they meant Crash Bash and/or Twinsanity? Those are popular requests for remastering.

11 : Anonymous2021/12/05 19:47 ID: hnd2js6

Gimme new Skylanders game!

ID: hndxevk

yes! my thoughts exactly!

No one cares fuck activision

13 : Anonymous2021/12/05 18:17 ID: hncn6ag

If it’s not Crash Bash, keep it.

14 : Anonymous2021/12/05 20:08 ID: hnd619i

It's probably their sequel to Ur-Quan Masters

They got all the legal stuff taken care of with Stardock and Toys for Bob is kind of the company that created it

ID: hndnlp3

Oh shit. This is the comment I knew I needed to see. Star Control II is one of the best games ever made.

Juffo-wup surges through my body.

Remember what Activision had done. Remember the inequality they are happy to maintain in their organisation. Never forget.

16 : Anonymous2021/12/05 20:51 ID: hndd838

Can we get a 60fps patch for spyro, that'd be great.

17 : Anonymous2021/12/05 21:36 ID: hndkf19

Tony Hawk's 3 and 4 Remastered, please.

18 : Anonymous2021/12/05 22:29 ID: hndsopm

Get them back on Spyro 4.

19 : Anonymous2021/12/05 18:10 ID: hncm7he

Jak and Daxter please

ID: hncxsit

Sony owns that

20 : Anonymous2021/12/05 17:06 ID: hnccg6u

whatever that new crash game is - I wont be buying (sorry TFB) - and it sounds like it is in development hell.

ID: hncjmml

There would be no reason to buy it anyway.

Crash 4 was the definition of a bloated game made so they could say “more levels than the crash collection” and charge full price.

The levels are way too long, and some have as many as 500+ boxes to get. And many break the cardinal rule of crash, by having boxes you would never know are there without a guide or randomly jumping in areas you can’t see anything. Then theres the fact that every level has 6 gem challenges now, the n sanely perfect challenge, and the n verted versions with another 6 gems. And your reward for all that is a lame teaser for another game.

Caddicarus has great video on crash 4’s issues, and why the originals are so fun to play and try to speedrun or 100% (or over 100%) complete, and crash 4 just isn’t. He even says that after finishing it, he can’t see himself playing it again because it was such a slog. And he’s basically THE crash superfan.

ID: hncle8f

I never played much of the original Crash, and loved Crash 4. I'm down for a sequel. Just my option though.

ID: hnctmrr

Cardinal rule isn't true. There are well hidden crates in the originals

ID: hnd7my1

Crash 4 is a phenomenal little game if you just play through the campaign and leave it there. One of the best games I've ever played, without a doubt.

ID: hndktu5

Agree on every point and loved Caddy's video. I grew up on Crash, 2 was/is my fav game ever. I was anticipating 4 like a mf'er and was dissapointed. The first few biomes were great. The New Orleans level is in my top 10 Crash levels ever. But holy hell the bloat makes the wider game a burden after after casually running through it the first time

The wumpa count and length of the levels mean I cannot be fucked at all attempting 100%ing most of the levels. Which sucks. if they cut most of the levels in half, it would be a great game. It's not a matter of git gud when the 'challenge' is unrewarding and boring. I actually prefer Twinsanity.

22 : Anonymous2021/12/05 22:20 ID: hndrdfb

Still hoping for a Twinsanity remaster. 🙂
