    Crash Bandicoot's revival is simply one of the best things that Activision has ever done, and recently they released a never-released stage of Crash Bandicoot, called 'Stormy Ascent' for free until August 19th. That is awesome!



    PS1 Ver.

    Hope that a Spyro Trilogy remake is in the works. :)

    Forget Spyro, we need a CTR remake! Anyways, let's see if Activision can keep this good press going into CoD:WWII and destiny 2(my guess is probably not). Also glad to see that they brought back and remastered stormy ascent. Now let's see if they release the sunset Vista beta remastered (there is an extra trophy that isn't assigned to anything yet afaik in the dlc tab). :)

    Since it was never released, it was neither fully finished so this isn't just a remaster — It's a remake wholeheartedly complete.

    Here's more about it:

    P.S. I really want CTR remade too for PS4/XO/Steam too and with online play.

    Most accounts would seem to say precisely the opposite. Probably not Silent Hill remake awful but certainly not a remake to aspire to.

    Oh, the Western version. Tbh, I never cared for that game (Mario 1, Mario 3, Mario World are my faves of the 8bit/16bit era).

    Yeah, okay, good job. Anyway Super Mario Maker is not a HD compilation, is a course editor. Super Mario all stars HD would be more of a HD compilation game. :)

    You know the disappointment we all got from nintendo for mario's 25 anniversary with Super Mario Allstars on wii? :glare:

    Lol, I honestly thought the remake was easier than the original because of the upgraded graphics, extra checkpoints and hints. Those people that say it's harder are also the ones comparing the new crash remake to dark souls.

    The real Super Mario Bros 2 is a bitch of a game, unfair platform placement, at least the Snes port allows you to restart at the world start and not the entire game. Crash N Sane Trilogy is the right way to remake the older games IMO.

    Disappointment? It was the only chance of getting something that would have competed (for common people) against 5+5+5+5+8 $/€ of VC games...

    I dunno about the currency exchange in other countries, but I guess what you're saying is that it was better to rip a SNES cart and put it on a wii disc to celebrate Mario bros. 25 Anniversary instead of just making Super Mario All-stars Snes VC for 800 Wii points.:unsure:

    Yeah, would prefer a Mario 3D Tetralogy HD remake (Sunshine, 64 DS, Galaxy, Galaxy 2)

    It was a waste of a 4.3 GB disc; I mean a 4 MB ROM, with maybe 100 MB of soundtrack data, wow, such an efficient use of space! People are better off using an emulator and ROM.

    Considering that the game is basically about nostalgia, I'd say f***ing up the difficulty is a bad decision and comes across more as an excuse trying to justify it.

    It's like when I tried to play Sonic 3 & Knuckles on my Fire TV, any alternation to how it played (mainly controller lag related in this case) ****ed up how I played it (mainly the special stages).
