Spyro: Year of the Dragon, Quite Literally

I would first like to give a shoutout to Crash Bandicoot. For giving us a remaster, throwing us all back to our childhoods, I really feel like it gave Spyro even more of a push to do the same. I love that we are living in a world where our childhood memories can be bought into adulthood, in all of its remastered beauty. Though playing classing games have such a nostalgic, retro feel, I’ll never say no to more video games in my life.

Silly question, but who’s excited to have that purple boy back in their lives? We'd all have the game in our hands if it hadn't been pushed further until November, not bothered by that fact at all... Nope. Not me. I'm kidding (or am I?), I know they did the right thing, sometimes making perfection just takes that little bit longer. I know it'll be so worth the wait. Like a lot of people, I grew up with the Spyro games. I wasn't blessed enough to own all three, but I was always grateful with anything I got as a kid. I faintly remember the first two Spyro games... Which if anything makes me even more excited to go back and remember everything I’d forgotten about. But Spyro 3 is 100% where my heart is. It’s the first game I actually completed, and probably my most re-played game of all time. I’ve lost count how many times I’ve gone through it start to finish and I can honestly say I still have so much fun every single time I play it.

If you didn’t have a chance to play Spyro when you were younger and are trying to decide whether to give the Trilogy a go this time around, I thought I’d give you a couple reasons why I think it’s the best decision you’ll make this year...

  2. The worlds you will venture through are beautiful, the art in this remaster looks incredible!
  3. It’s actually a steal price wise, £30 for all three games which are lengthy, wholesome games, you’ll spend weeks on end playing them. 
  4. Unlike Crash Bandicoot, you wont get triggered every 20 seconds of playing. Sorry Crash, but it’s true. I tried to go back to Crash Bandicoot 2 the other day I got so mad I turned my PS4 off. Oops. 
  5. It truly feels like you’re on an adventure. The worlds are so open, which gives you so much time to roam freely and explore each level til your heart is content.
So, show of hands who's going to be picking the Reignited Trilogy up November 13th? Which game are you most excited for? November will truly be a wonderful month for gamers everywhere. I can't wait.

Also just a little thanks to everyone who welcomed me back and sent me all of the love on my last post, I really appreciate it! I can't wait to get back into writing more, I'd love to know what you'd like to see me talk about in the future. :)
