Reignited so far Show more
Platinum’d Spyro 1 and my impressions thus far:
I miss the effect where the collected gems fly to your total count between levels.
The new music is good for what it is. Some have kept original samples in or made subtle enhancements. Not much to improve on anyway. Some basslines don’t have that oomph to it though.
D-Pad > Stick in flight levels.
The devs managed to make those guys just as unsettling as they were in the original. Took me longer to beat this compared to the other 2 bc they scared tf out of me as a kid.
They’re quicker at the jump in this one too.

Didn’t take long for Reignited to reach the “obviously fake game review screenshot that slams the difficulty spread by ‘git gud’ channers” stage for a retro rerelease. Said pic didn’t even have a site name or anything, just a generic looking head and byline.
Remember that photoshopped RPS headline about Cuphead’s “toxic difficulty” that was taken at face value? All for their “we’re the REAL gamers, not cazuls” narrative from since 2008.
I’m off work and hyped af on the way to pick up Spyro Reignited

Snoop Dogg gets to have an early copy though https://twitter.com/snoopdogg/status/1062043215556014080?s=21
Low-key hoping for a slim chance I can get preordered copy of Spyro Reignited early. Weather is supposed to be bad tomorrow.
That game has been one of my top wishes ever
It’s Sunday, so...
Why do I feel more tired after sleeping in on a Saturday? I’m supposed to be more rested
Replaying Saints Row 2 to celebrate 10 years with the game. One part of being one of my faves is that the ragdoll physics are more satisfying because of how floppier and more impactful they are, compared to the cushier moon physics of later entries.
Got lucky with traffic + buses during the first snowfall. It was much worse and exhausting yesterday for no reason
