To this end, on Friday afternoon, I was transported to the months of 1996. You may ask, “What happened then?” For starters, Nickelodeon was always very good and SNICK was a must-have weekend ritual.
Dunk-a-Roos was a staple in my lunch box for school, as the shark bites Gushers and Capri Sun. I had three events a day, but the third was still too short, and the birthday parties were either to explore the area or to a place that had a laser tag (Q-Zar was big in my city).
But even more behind. After praising Sony’s first console game of our Super Duper video, I had my first PlayStation for Christmas in 1995 with battle arena Toshinden, Mortal Kombat 3, and with the generous parents’ holiday money a copy of Primal Rage $ 80 Best Buy (which, on the other hand, has been accompanied by a $ 4 coupon for admission to Six Flags Theme Parks, which matters).
What can I say, I loved my fighting games, and I was in the 32 bit paradigm, one by one.
Over the next year, the PlayStation has become increasingly important, but with Super Mario 64 on the horizon, I remember that I worry that my console of choice does not experience the 3D gaming revolution.
Fortunately, Naughty Dog came to live with her narcissant orange marsupial, twisting Wumpa fruit crates and crushed.
While Crash Bandicoot was not the homeless revolution Ultra command of Nintendo 64, it showed what was possible on the Sony machine while offering lots of fun jungle jump.
And here we are, 20 years later, with Vicarious Visions and Activision in the last E3 promises to revive not only the classic PlayStation classics, but also two excellent sequels, bark counterattack and warped.
I received my evaluation copy in today’s mail, and after playing for a few hours, I can not even begin to express the joy of childhood that I have experienced.
The only introduction to music was enough to send nostalgic attacks, and it can be said of other small details that the developers have returned the original, including the old school sound effects and even the familiar screen quadrant break .
It is almost impossible to bear, but the return-to-thon made me long for a major omission: CTR. Or for lack of training for 1999 Crash Team Racing.
And I do not mean this low ratio Crash Nitro Kart. I want the real deal, the latest official Crash Bandicoot game in which Naughty Dog worked.
Due to this day, I still consider him my favorite karting racer of all time. The levels were imaginative, colorful and filled with interesting pieces, lines and shortcuts. The drift was excellent.
The only adventure mode in the style of Diddy Kong Racing was an explosion. And the multiplayer was second to none.
Believe me when I say that I have probably spent hundreds of hours scrolling through family and friends in this glorious split screen mode to 4 players, an option that had no activity also work well as on the PlayStation during aging.
Be Vicarious Visions and Activision never mentioned CTR group allusions with their brothers and sisters, to make the trilogy of an all-inclusive quartet.
But I can not help but think that this might have been a missed opportunity. Although honestly, I would not say if the idea reached the planning stage of N. Sane Trilogy and maybe the budget or programming took the lead.
Is it naive to expect that if this version goes well, a complete remasterisateur Crash Team Racing, with split screen and multiplayer online mode, you can make your way to the shops? I also call for an original reorganization of the Spyro the Dragon trilogy at some point.
Although my dreams do not surpass, I always obscene fun with this brilliant remake.
If you are a bandicut fan, do yourself a favor and take a copy. And once you do, leave a comment or send a message so that we can discuss drop as it was in 1996.
