So excited for this game!

At the worst I'm going to moan at Amazon tomorrow for breaking their Prime rules by sending a next day delivery on a non next day service.

Ah well, still getting the weekend with Crash :)

I remember playing Crash 3 as a kid and me and my father would fight over the best time on the first bike level. So much fun.

33 year old me is nowhere near the skill of 13-15 year old me so I'm not expecting miracles.

Hoping to be semi competitive on the bike races and the water stuff.

What about Lost Trasure DLC?
Is it included or Activision really will release a dlc for a remastered of a 20 years old game?

Crash's controls aren't overly complicated, I think it'll come back like riding a bike. I recently booted up Crash 1 in anticipation and got all boxes, no deaths on Slippery Climb on the first try.

I'm interested how the vehicle/riding levels work out. Stuff like hog riding in Crash 1 must have leaderboards with differences in microseconds.

Here's hoping.

The crash series was one of the first non racing game where I took time trialing seriously so you never know.

Feel free to hit me up on PSN if you want to see my pathetic attempts on the leaderboards.

Will do. Maybe we could start a PSN community to compare neogaf scores? I have no idea how these communites work, haven't used them at all.

By the way, I don't need ps+ to see leaderboards, do I? That would seriously rain on my parade.

I don't think you do, no.

I've never used the PS community things either, maybe time to start? :)

Is it just me or is Crash almost the perfect game to play with a partner or friend? It's almost like it was designed for "Pass the controller" play with the way the levels were designed and paced.

They really are. One of my fondest memories of these games is the time my brother and I convinced my mom to play the Hog Wild level in Crash 1. She hooted and hollered, leaned into every turn, and shrieked every time she died. It was an absolute riot. After that evening the Crash games became a part of our family game night rotation.

I'm gonna get them all to play the remaster this weekend. They're all looking forward to it. 😁

Anyone hoping to play crash 2 or 3 first will have an extra wait. They install in order.

Also a super tiny patch was there.

Yeah, I've decided to hold off for the time being as I'm currently halfway through GTA5 and, as far as the PS4 in particular is concerned, still need to finish Horizon.

Have you gotten any relics yet? I thought I'd have to go through time trials to get them, but alas nothing happens.

Edit: Nvm, checking the leaderboards shows you what time you need to achieve for the relics. I must be doing something really wrong as I'm almost 10 seconds away from platinum relics, haha.

The series has a bit of a running theme of abbreviating things that start with N and making the abbreviation into a different word.

Nitrus Brio = N.Brio (sounds like embryo)

Nefarious Tropy = N.Tropy (Entropy)

Or sometimes it's the only name given for them, like N. Gin or N. Tranced (who isn't in these games)

Etc etc.

The one the title most directly refers to is the name of the first of the three islands in the game, North Sanity Island, which of course becomes N.Sanity Island (and thus N.Sanity Beach.)

As said above, N. Cortex is the main villain, but interestingly enough his name is the exception, not the rule, as his full name is the one that has the meaning and not the other way around like the other villains. (Neo Cortex = Neocortex).

Nathan, as in Nathan Sane, the man who originally engineered the technology that forms the basis of the Cortex Vortex in 1867

It's just a play on a naming convention of the series.

In N. Sane, nothing. Only N. Cortex is short for Neo Cortex, other villains like N. Brio (~embryo) N.Gin (~ engine), N. Tropy (~ entropy) are just word play.

edit: way late and inaccurate

I will be surprised if the MC is under 80. Having played the games on PS3 few years ago and the first game few months ago I don't think the trilogy aged any worse than KH games

Expecting low-mid 80s.

I expect a lot of "gameplay hasn't aged well" or "stuck in the past" and lower scores, like every non-Nintendo platformer these days.

That said, I don't think scores will affect the sales that much, whoever's played the games when they first came out will know if they want the trilogy or not.
