  1. Watching all four Toy Story movies one after another would probably be like taking a crash course in CGI Animation.

  2. Good god, I think I love Toy Story 2. Like don't get me wrong, I liked it before, but upon this rewatch, I just loved it beginning to end. It's not only the Toy Story movie I am the most nostalgic for, since I used to watch it non stop on VHS along with Monsters Inc, but it is legitimately just so much fun to watch, has a lot of the best comedy of the series, and a lot of the best set pieces.

  3. Here's a fun depressing fact to make the already depressing When She Loved Me song in TS2 even more depressing - Emily didn't mean to abandon Jessie like she did. She clearly was trying to do what Andy successfully does in TS3 - where she wanted to donate Jessie to a child in need of a toy. That's probably why she did it, to give another child a toy she loved so much, and to let Jessie keep being played with. After all, why else would she have Jessie ride in the car with her like old times, and take her to the same spot they always played?

    ...and it was almost definitely awful luck that Al stumbled upon Jessie in a charity shop she'd been donated to, and kept her in storage for even longer, causing Jessie's abandonment issues to develop more and more.

    Jessie: You calling me a liar?!

    Woody: I ain't callin' you a truther!

  6. Just finished Toy Story. First time I've seen it in years, still one of the best movies Disney and Pixar have ever made. This movie is literally interconnected to my childhood with how many times I've seen it as a child and how much I loved both TS1 and TS2 back then. So insanely happy it's held up so damn well.

      I like all the little secrets hidden in the movie, such as an ad for Al’s Toy Barn when Buzz watches the advertisement for himself, one of Sid’s creations being a literal hooker, the subtle passing of time when Andy runs into his cupboard and comes out with a makeshift spacesuit costume, and an SNES hidden in the background of the opening scene.

      Due to reasons that's not important to the topic at hand, I thought I wouldn't be able to see Toy Story when it was first released. Then one day, after school, my mom told me, "let's go to the movies, we're gonna see toy story!" Much to my surprise. So glad I did, I loved it! Years later, I'm in my late 20s and I still love the movies and the characters. I remember my parents getting me talking toys of Woody and Buzz Lightyear toys the latter of whom I found in my dad's car with a seatbelt, ala the pizza planet car scene. The SNES toy story was fun, but goddamn could it be frustratingly hard... Never could beat it without the invincibility cheat as a kid, and I still struggle with that damned RC car level.

      But uh... wow, getting very nostalgic here. 

      I watched 2 & 3 in theaters, and despite being one of millions who wondered why a fourth movie exists, I'm still excited to be seeing it as well. Also, despite its small size, I absolutely love Toy Story land at Hollywood Studios. It's charming as heck and a great experience for Toy Story fans.

  7. Sometimes I forget how funny the Toy Story trilogy was, especially the first one. Moments like Woody having to puppeteer Buzz's arm still cracks me up.

      “Buzz, can you give me a hand?!”

      Gee, I was watching that on national TV, and I just unexpectedly cracked up when the scene came on.

      The movie was... :p

      There was a channel playing all three Toy Story movies in promotion for Toy Story 4.

      @Polkadi~♪ Ah, okay.

      Anyways, I enjoyed TS1 Woody as much as the next guy, but I’m likewise happy that it wasn’t how Woody was portrayed in KH3.

      The first one is my second favorite. I love that movie. The humor in the new one just isn't the same. There's something more acid in the old ones.

    9. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      I love how the second movie isn't even subtle - you can literally see the SNES in full view when Woody's on the shelf.

      The first Toy Story especially has some of my favourite lines to quote, like this:

      ...and this:

  8. What if Toy Story 5 reveals that the person who made Buzz Lightyear knew that toys are alive and that's why every single Buzz Lightyear toy is programmed to literally believe they are a space ranger right to the point of their demo mode forces them to believe it again.

    1. Ernest the Panda

      For what purpose?

    2. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      None at all, I just find it funny that seemingly they program all Buzz Lightyears to believe they are the one true Buzz jussssst in case they can come alive.

  9. You can't unlock him solo. Literally the only way to get N Trance is via the pack.
  10. Remember that weird time Nintendo tried to throw SEGA under the bus by claiming Night Trap was a monstrous game 

    1. AlphaRuby

      Did it have monsters in it?

      If so, then Nintendo weren't wrong

      Nintendo sure did. They wore it proudly on their chest in this trailer

       

  11. Between the bugs and the atrocious A.I in hard mode, Nitro-Fuelled has just about burned any good will it had from me.

    1. DanJ86

      It still has a lot of positive reviews which I feel is strange.

  12. Oh, and playing the hard mode - yeah, fuck that. I played through on both Easy and Normal to completion, but I mean the rubberbanding is utterly awful here. Playing as Crunch (I.E - top speed character) - I would regularly be overtaken by Coco, Cortex and fucking Puma of all characters. I don't know who on earth playtested it and thought it was a good idea, but it wasn't. It is utterly awful, and cheap. Literally bog-lazy A.I too. They don't play better, they don't use shortcuts, it's literally their stats are maxed and they recover almost immediately from items. Oh and also don't go in front because you'll get hit with a missile almost immediately.
  13. PS4 is the one platform being reported a ton. @Jovahexeon Ogilvie Maurice has had his data wiped too, but idk if he has the Switch or PS4 version.
  14. Honestly, the new Sonic cancelled game on GBA looks like a cancelled GBA port of that Sonic skateboarding game, this one: 

     

  15. Right, having finished the adventure mode twice now, including a 100% run, and having put a good amount of hours into the game, I think I'm ready to give my thoughts on it. Now first things first, I want to comment on this because it was being brought up so many times before launch. Is CTR better than TSR? In my honest opinion, no. Not in it's current state. Right now, I want to say it is, because I am beginning to enjoy the gameplay a lot more than TSR, but good god there are so many things in this game holding it back that is frustrating to absolutely no end that it makes the game feel like a chore half the time. Let's talk about the elephant in the room - this game is totally broken. Is it Sonic 06 broken? No, it isn't. But I cannot sit here and say that Crash Team Racing is a perfectly functional game with no issues, it is utterly fucked and frankly should not have been released in it's current state. I am legitimately shocked right now that it has released like this, because I'm on the verge of calling it worse than even Reignited Trilogy was at release. Let's run through the list of bugs right now. -The online is still broken. The game was utterly broken at launch with online, with either A - lobbies constantly shutting down, or B. People getting into matches only for the game to literally lag like utter fuck and make everyone not only run at a powerpoint pace, but this makes all of the obstacles broken. You'll get hit by invisible rockets, you'll have invisible TNT crates on your head out of nowhere, despite being sure you avoided them. You'll see objects hanging around in mid air, it is broken beyond belief, and it's disgusting how broken it is even after a patch released designed to "solve" these issues. -There's pieces of collision that just flat out aren't working correctly. There's times you'll be near a wall and be completely stopped as if you hit it. There's times where you will land on the ground and suddenly have Aku Aku appear to lift you back up, as if you've jumped into a pit. The best example of this is there's one specific spot on Oxide Station where if you land on the right side of one of the roads after one of the gravity jumps, the game will act as if you fell through the terrain, having Aku Aku appear to lift you back up. I've also heard reports of boxes, crystals and other items' collision being far too small. -The weight and physics are messed up. I can't explain it accurately enough because I don't have enough experience with the original, but someone on Reddit did a very good post showing the problem. Best example is the shortcut jump on Sewer Speedway, which is now incredibly inconsistent. -Some trophies are bugged, with reports of the shortcut trophies in particular being buggy - especially the trophy "I know the Way", which is unlocked for finding all shortcuts. I can also speak from experience that the trophy for Blizzard Peaks is also a bit buggy, and required running one of the shortcuts twice before it would pop. -The biggest one - a MAJOR game-breaking bug, that is utterly baffling that it got through QA testing - at any point in the game, but especially with online play, and time trials - as well as the purple gem cup - the game has a high tendency to crash. If the game crashes, there's about a 95% chance that it will completely corrupt your save and cause you to lose ALL progress and unlockables. Better yet - backing up your save does little to help as well, because while you will get your progress back, it will cause the game to begin glitching even more - with higher chances of freezing and corruption occurring. Better yet - if you download a save as well, it will glitch again - locking away all unlocked costumes earned via in-game progression (I,E - win 10 races with Crash), all kart parts, customisation options - and most important of all - characters and costumes unlocked through Adventure Mode will also be locked again, and will require a full story run again to unlock them (Unconfirmed if that even fixes it, they might be permanently locked again). There's been many topics on Reddit pointing this out - for example: I'm in total disbelief that this game hasn't been fixed yet, despite having so many bugs like this, better yet - so many major bugs like this. I'd get the collision and the physics - I'd wish they would be fixed, but I would get them, but a literal save corrupter that not even back-ups can fully restore, plus locks a ton of your characters and other prizes with likely no way to recover them, it's insane. But then there's just the general game issues that hold it back for me. I love the gameplay of CTR, a lot more than TSR in fact, but the gameplay just doesn't feel good a lot of the time, especially with Adventure Mode. There's constant and extreme rubber-banding at play, it's just blatantly unfair that the CPU gets to be ""difficult" via just literally having far higher stats than you at all times as opposed to actually being smartly designed CPU meant to give you a legit challenge. The bosses still absolutely suck and should've been redesigned from the ground up, remake or not. CNK doesn't get tons of representation, despite the effort that went into remaking it's cast and it's tracks, etc. But the coin shop is just utter shit as well. It reeks of microtransactions. It's a nightmare to try grind it offline, to the point where two full Adventure Runs with online sprinkled in only got me four CNK characters and a new paint job. The online is the only way to get it at a reasonable level, and the online is currently broken, and Activision has shoved in a forced limit for how many coins you can get at a boosted rate per day before dropping down to the normally awful rate. It all stinks of a game being designed to drain you of patience so it can wave those microtransactions between your eyes and tempt you with the idea of "why force yourself to waste all that time playing when you can just buy 10k coins for a small fee?". But then there's the fact that the pit stop also heavily resembles (from what people are saying at least) - Fortnite's store, where everything is randomised. Add into the fact that these Grand Prixes sound suspiciously a lot like your typical Fortnite, or even Black Ops 4 "content" season, and it begins to dawn on you how frightened you should be of Activision ruining this game. Everything stinks of Activision trying to kill the game's enjoyment to give incentive for paying as a live service. A forced rate of coin grinding per day, a randomised shop that forces you to buy packs and characters one at a time before getting to the stuff you actually might want (Especially for the likes of N Trance, who's locked behind a 7k pack). Seasonal content that already sounds like it's going to have a bunch of tiers that will allow Activision to slip in with a "Well buy these coins and pay to skip a few tiers *wink wink, nudge nudge*. I'm worried because I've been down this road before with Black Ops 4, and how that game was utterly murdered with rampant microtransaction bullshit. I frankly do not trust Activision enough not to pull this shit. It's very easy to see where they could not add the microtransactions at first to try win some good will, only to then later add them back in, much like was done with Black Ops 4, and Modern Warfare Remastered. What sucks the most is that there is just so much to like about Nitro-Fuelled. The gameplay is as good as ever, the music is fantastic, the graphics are crisp, lush, and lovely. The worst thing about this game is it has the potential. It has the potential to stomp TSR into the fucking ground. It has the potential to rival Mario Kart 8 frankly. It has the potential to be this great love-letter to the fans of Crash, especially with so many references to Twinsanity, Crash of the Titans, Wrath of Cortex, and tons of other Crash games. It has potential to keep the game alive for many years via the Grand Prixes, and making the game constantly fun. But there's just so many cynical money-grubbing bullshit things in this game that makes it feel like it's ready to be blown apart by Activision for as much money as possible. There's already tons of hints that the game was rushed to launch, much like how Reignited was rushed to utter hell and released with Spyro 3 near broken at launch. There's already very evident and utterly frustrating grinding mechanics being used that scream of being a sneaky way for Activision to make the game into a live service. The online is still utterly broken so soon after launch, and the other aspect of the game - I.E the single player has the chance to completely wipe away all of your progress due to a game-breaking bug. I legitimately do not know how this game released in the state it is in, but for the love of God, it needs to be fixed. Because frankly, I cannot say with a straight face that CTR is better than TSR in it's current state. On a fundamental gameplay and content standpoint, it's superior, but on a technical standpoint, it falls apart. The gameplay is ruined by so many aspects that it's kind of insane, just due to bad rubber-banding A.I, or even just because of the fact that you need to keep backing out to back-up saves on the off chance your progress will be totally wiped. All I can say is - I really hope Beenox pull themselves together now. I want to love this game, hell - having played through Adventure Mode twice now and gotten used to the mechanics and tracks, I know for a fact I will love this game if the issues are cleaned up. Right now, I just can't because it feels like every aspect of the game is getting hit by some massive bug, or some huge flaw. Right now, I want Beenox to look at three major areas and improve it - online, single player bugs, and the coin system. If they fix all three, then I think this will stomp TSR into the ground, and have a high chance to even take on MK8. Otherwise, it's going to remain as an example of another game with such massive potential ruined by Activision's rushing and money-grubbing.
