The only Crash game I've played is Wrath of Cortex :( all I remember was that it had fucking horrible loading times and that I sucked at it.

I wanna play the naughty dog games on my Vita, Sony whyyyyy

So I've been working on updating this avatar since before PSASBR came out, and now that it's finished, I thought it would be a good idea to put it here.



New avatar up for grabs!

My friend had got the first three PS1 Crash games, and we are going to do a marathon next weekend & try to complete them 100%. I've never played them before, so I'm going in with a fresh pair of eyes.

Be warned 100% Crash games is really fucking hard and frustrating......I would at the very least get a guide

Yep, Crash 1 is a motherfucker to 100%, 2 is challenging but not as bad as 1, and Warped is... easier than 2 in one way, but harder in another (time trials). Have fun.

Didn't see this mentioned in the thread yet. Apparently, Spyro: Year Of The Dragon has a playable near-complete beta of Crash Bash inside its demo. You just need to enter a cheat code and most of the mini games become playable. It even works on the PSOne Classics version. Pretty neat considering the game hasn't been released on the PSN store excluding Japan. I've been playing it for a bit and it seems decent. Just a heads-up for those who don't know.

Man I miss those days. Not even the sequels could rival it.

Well yeah, the sequels were headed by completely different teams.

What happened to Tiny?

Oh wow, I forgot all about this.
I guess they didn't realize that Tiny was a Thylacine(Tasmanian Tiger).
:p

Edit: Btw Crash always had the best evil henchmen out of the big 3 mascots in the PS1 era.
The villain designs in the ND Crash trilogy have greatly influenced my own character designs, and art style.

I also don't know why Crash Team Racing got so much hate.

It was much better designed than Mark Kart 64.

MK64 felt so 2d when playing. Go look at a video of the two games side by side.

CTR was so much better than MK64.

Man that Battle to Battle mode was so great!!!!

Damn! i never heard about this before, that's really cool.

I remember my very first experience with Playstation was the first CB back in the day, it blew me away. jumped from Genesis/SNes to PS1 & the rest was history.

I picked up the first three Naughty Dog developed games via the recent PSN sale, gonna be some good times on my Vita.

You deserve to be disappointed. Sony does not own the i.p.
I don't even for a moment expect anything Crash-related at E3, but why do people keep taking the attitude that Sony not owning the IP means anything? Correct me if I'm wrong, but Sony didn't own the IP when the Naughty Dog games were made, they didn't own the IP when the Radical Entertainment games were made, and they don't own the IP now.

A Crash Landed animation has been recently found..
Ha, that's great! Such a shame the Crash Landed games took a dive. At the very least they had some great art design going on.

Did it back in the day? It still got good reviews and whatnot. At least it's been vindicated by history. Still play it today with friends, and it never gets old.

Yeah, the test stuff for Crash Landed looked incredibly charming(The little Bandicoots were adorable).
I really wish it got off the ground, I'd love to see a really awesome Crash reboot that feels familiar and new at the same time.

I'd be one of the 10 people in the world to buy a PS4 for a SONY developed Crash Bandicoot platformer. Crash 2/3's art style rendered with the power of the PS4 would be a thing of absolute beauty.

Thanks for the heads up!

Btw is Wraith of Cortex really as bad as people say? I remember beating it when it came out and thought it was an alright game. Haven't touched it since.
If Crash 1-3 was a popular music group, Wrath of Cortex would be like a tribute band. Not the same as the real thing, but still enjoyable to play.

This is a pretty good way to put it, actually

edit: Watching the speedrun, the motorcycle levels of Crash 3 would have been a lot better if there was a drift mechanic

It had some interesting ideas, but the character feel is slightly lesser and the level design isn't quite as good. The super-monkey ball stages are pretty neat, but it's a bit overzealous having four levels plus a boss. Comparatively, the invisibility power-up box only appears in one level, and there's only one or two places that you need to use the tip-toe ability, though that's probably for the better. The racing controls are pretty bad. The boss fights are actually pretty good, and in fact better than the ND games in my opinion.

So a bit of mixed bag. I liked it a lot and was happy to play it when I was younger, but now it gets replayed significantly less than Twinsanity and the originals.
