  1. Probably my favourite anime ED ever

  2. I feel like Twinsanity’s buginess is severely overstated. It’s not an unfinished game because of it being unpolished, what is there is mostly stable in my opinion, it’s an unfinished game due to how rushed it was and how much content was ultimately cut, and even at - Crash Twinsanity’s narrative - which having plot holes - isn’t a total mess or anything. Comparing it to 06 is too far IMO.

  8. In fairness to this (100% ending spoiler): I also have to say it feels weird to me that the dimension hopping was a thing. It feels like they wanted to go all-in on time travelling, only to realise "oh shit, Crash 3 was about that, we need something different" and switched it to dimension hopping. Like, both the title, and the locales of the game scream time travel. Pirates, Ancient Japan, the future, hell - a revisit to Crash 1, but the game's premise isn't about time travel, it's about dimensions being torn open and flung everywhere, and it doesn't justify that. The dimension rifts don't actually go to different dimensions, the closest thing we get is that the snow world references taking place in one of the dimensions mentioned in Twinsanity (the 11th, I believe). I don't mind having all the different time travel locales, but it would've been neat to mix in levels from other games too. Why stop at just referencing Crash 1? Why not have stuff like the rollerball sections from WoC, or hell - even the Crash/Cortex team up levels from Twinsanity? There's even concept art that implies that not only were the mine-cart stages from WoC (one of the best mechanics in that game) was set to come back, but that Crash and Cortex would've done them together ala Twinsanity, and it just got canned:

  11. As good as Miles already is with it's attention to detail, I'd be lying if I said I didn't wish they added the Shoulder Touch from Spiderverse as a takedown

  12. I think Caddicarus has a point when he says it's a greatest hits, but unfortunately, it also manages to devalue several of those greatest hits. Crash 1's mechanics making a return in 4 isn't fun, or good - it's tedious and makes it more frustrating. Crash 2's secrets have been flanderised to the point that every single level just isn't fun to play if you want to go for full completion. Crash 3's Time Trials aren't handled well whatsoever, between the removal of the Crash Dash, replacing it with a much more dangerous and inferior option, and the ridiculous times required for platinums (when Crash 3 required gold at best). Twinsanity's multiple playable characters are not handled as well. Tawna and Dingodile can be fun on occasion, but their usual long stretches of levels, mixed with forcing you to do another tedious section of a level with Crash and Coco right after kills it. Cortex in short just isn't much fun at all IMO, I really don't like his playstyle in 4. Even Tag Team Racing's costume mechanics is ruined by the gem hunting, and the ridiculous requirements in later parts of the game. It's like it brings back so many aspects that should all be gold when brought together, but they add in these silly caveats that ruin them. The only one I think of that works well is the WoC stuff, and even at that - mask power ups can be fucking infuriating sometimes in some levels.
  13. To be honest, and this is a bit of a hot take - I still prefer Twinsanity over It's About Time. I was getting really tired of the game around the futuristic food world, namely because every single level, I just had an apathetic empty feeling knowing I just didn't have it in me to go for completion. When you're someone like me who plays Crash (and Spyro for that matter) a specific way, and you're essentially just forced to fight against your instincts to complete levels, it just left me feeling disheartened by the end. Twinsanity is just a good blast of fun start to finish, even if it's shorter in comparison. Maybe my thoughts will change if I give Crash 4 a second run in the future, but for now, I haven't even bothered with the N Verted or Timeline levels.
  14. You'll be added to a general organisation PM where they'll be an invite sent out tomorrow or Sunday for Game Night's Discord channel. From there, I'll send you out my friend code, and you can join the arena as usual!

      Only game I've picked up so far is Dark Souls Remastered, but I might get the two new Hitman games. Miiight get Ghost of Tsushima. Maybe. 

  17. Ian did thankfully back pedal it, but there’s evidence that Penders was fully intending that. On the page, you can easily see where text was edited to “nap”, meaning what Penders originally had was even more explicit. Worse than that, Penders has out and out confirmed that the two of them having sex is fully what he intended. You can see more here: https://thankskenpenders.tumblr.com/post/188198790390/so-heres-where-shit-starts-to-get-real-ugly-in Worse than that, Penders has also claimed that Anti Sonic was somehow in the right, and Bunnie was the one who made this transgression, despite the fact that Anti Sonic essentially committed sexual assault, you can’t make this shit up.
  18. Return to Angel Island is an arc in which following the year that Sonic was trapped in space and believed dead, Eggman went to war with Knothole and the Kingdom of Acorn, and Knuckles and the Chaotix had decided upon helping them as Angel Island had the Brotherhood. Out of universe, the context was until M25YL, Ken had finished his “grand plan” for Knuckles following the beyond idiotic arc where he died saving Dimitri’s life, and going through echidna heaven. Since Ken was no longer writing plots about Knuckles and the echidnas, either due to being done, or editorial not wanting the stories anymore, this was the first time in years that Bollers was allowed to use the Angel Island crew. Bollers - being a fan of the games - immediately hopped onto the chance to not only have the arc tie into his plans, but tie it far, far closer to the game lore. Knuckles - following Issue 125 where he came back to life and used his remaining Chaos Powers to help stop the doomsday device planted by a group of genocidal aliens (and what caused Sonic to be flung into space as he was trying to stop it, being the only one fast enough to do so). Anyways, Knuckles had been depowered, and was ultimately feeling weaker due to it, getting a sense of inferiority about it. Then, he discovers what has happened to Angel Island. Eggman - being Eggman - finally decided to take off the kid gloves. Unleashing the full might of his empire onto the island, he easily destroys both the Brotherhood of Guardians (leaving them missing, thank god), and the Dark Legion. He razes Echidnapolis to the ground, and removes the echidna of all their technological advancements, enslaving them. This has the result of bringing the echidnas back to their ancient depictions from Sonic Adventure, undertaking more traditional clothes like the Knuckles Tribe, and Bollers - calling out the ugly side of the chosen one legends - has the echidnas now believe Knuckles was a god like figure named the Avatar who was capable of destroying Eggman, and saving them all, which isn’t the case whatsoever due to his lacking powers, and weakening strength. At the same time, the remains of the Dark Legion - led by the newly introduced Dr. Finitevus has picked up the slack, liberating echidnas where they can, and using their technological prowess to dismantle operations on the island. For once, we get an actual decent conflict where the Dark Legion is beyond pissed that their aid to the echidnas are ignored, because they’re too busy naively waiting for a god like Knuckles to save the day, when they’ve been doing their hardest to do so as is. It’s implied they have ulterior motives, but it also has a good reason for why they’d be pissed overall. Then we get to Knuckles. The whole arc is essentially a call out of Ken’s boring writing, and a course correct to make things interesting. Due to his failing strength, Knuckles dons his SA2 power ups to help him get a boost. When they get to Angel Island, Echidnaopolis is destroyed, and the decades of constantly dicking over mobians because they believed themselves superior finally caught up to them (the Brotherhood at one point allowed Eggman to do as he pleased, essentially saying “lol, not our problem”, meaning this was well deserved. Even the hypocritical treatment of the Dingos bit them in the ass, as Eggman was able to convince them to work for him, due to being oppressed by the echidnas for so long. Due to the destruction and enslavement, Angel Island under Bollers now resembled the game’s version properly, with several game zones appearing, the echidnas reverting back to the clothing and superstition of the Knuckles Clan, Knuckles’s brother having his ridiculously silly and long name (originally made by Penders) given a shorter pet name that was perfect (Bollers had given him the nickname of Kneecaps the Echidna). Above all else, Knuckles is the star. After so many issues of being written as a boring shell of a character by Penders, Bollers had drained him of every ounce of overpowered ability, and brought him back to his personality from the games. He’s got self doubt issues due to the heavy legends being told about him, when he isn’t able to live up to the echidnas’ hype. His firery attitude is back is full force, with his hot temper, and sense of right and wrong finally brought back to the forefront. For all the arc’s achievements, finally making Knuckles be like Knuckles is topping the list. There is so much great comedy in this arc that comes off from Knuckles’ temper, and Sonic and the Chaotix teasing him, or vice versa. He also finally gets to realise who the bad guys actually are. Knuckles at the end of Penders’ backups was a dumbass who was helping the Dark Legion after they pulled Angel Island into another dimension (Knuckles knew they did this), and his death was him saving Dimitri (the Legion’s leader). The first thing he does upon seeing them in this arc is charging right at them with fury, and Sonic pointing out how much Knuckles hates the legion. Knuckles is also beyond weirded out by the echidnas treating him like this god like figure, and constantly asks to be referred to by his name, not Avatar. At the end of the arc, not only do they find the encaptured Locke, but Knuckles ends up finding power to dismantle the operation on Angel Island. Not his crappy Chaos Knuckles form, but rather he turns into Hyper Knuckles (in a homage to Mega Man Zero 2 no less), and uses the form and the help of Sonic and the Chaotix to save the echidnas from Eggman. However, what you might be surprised to learn is prior to Ian, this is actually where the call outs of Locke and the Brotherhood starts. Upon being rescued, and the island liberated, Locke expected Knuckles to stick around and help find the Brotherhood, in which Knuckles says he can’t, because he’s helping with the war on Mobius, which leads to Knuckles finally standing up to his father and not backing down, calling Locke out on his selfishness for once. I can’t really do justice to the arc with a quick description, but the short version of it all is that it’s an arc that actually makes stuff happen, has all of the echidnas terrible actions finally have consequences, tries to bring everything back to the games’ lore with the introduction of Hidden Palace, and a ton of other zones, make the Dark Legion interesting, and overall bring Knuckles back in line with his game counterpart. And thus as you can imagine, Penders despised this. Everything I just mentioned, he loathed with a passion. He hated having his cast called out on their shit actions, he hated Angel Island and Echidnapolis being enslaved and razed, he hated Knuckles standing up to Locke, and hoo boy, does he have a grudge against Kneecaps the Echidna following the nickname. Penders acts like a completely petty child in reference to this arc. Not only does he hate it, not only did he claim that Bollers had vindictively stolen and destroyed his work and lore (he likes to act like only he is entitled to use his characters, although that sure as fuck didn’t stop Penders using Mina and trying to utterly wreck her as a character), following Bollers getting ousted from the comic, and Penders becoming head lead (easily the darkest period of the comic) - he decided to only try to quickly retcon and revert things to normal (Echidnapolis was nearly rebuilt within a few issues, Locke tried to find the brotherhood), but he decided like the petty child he is to fuck around with Bollers’ intended plans. First things first - there was Bollers’ planned arc with tackling Sally’s emotional baggage - Penders scrapped that, turned it into a bunch of love triangle melodrama, and made it beyond dreadful, and to this day, he still loves to tout around the idea that the Slap was a awful idea conceived by Bollers, and that Penders was somehow “fixing it” when he only made it much, MUCH worse. Secondly, he essentially tried to character assassinate Mina. He makes a whole milestone story about Evil Sonic kidnapping and taking Sonic’s place on Mobius, which leads to him hitting on every girl he sees. This includes reverting Mina’s character development and making her nearly cheat on Ash, but also includes having Evil Sonic literally have sex with Bunnie and try to be disgustingly sly about it (and yes, given that Bunnie thought it was regular Sonic - there’s a LOT of horrific implications brought about by Penders doing that). Thirdly and most infamously - Bollers had a plan that Antoine would be changed by the war and would eventually be corrupted by the source of all, Penders retroactively changed all this by claiming it was simply Evil Antoine all along, and made a contrived and boring plot where Sally and Evil Antoine get married because “”””drama””””. That may have been for the better, in fairness depending on who you ask, but still - it was done out of pettiness. So yeah, Penders doesn’t like this arc very much, big surprise.
  19. Seeing scalpers trying to get sympathy and give sob stories about how people call them out on their bullshit is beyond pathetic.

      It's baffling that the scalpers thought they could get any sympathy.

      But I'm not familiar with the whole situation. All I know is that it sounds like the new consoles have sold out due to scalpers reselling them for stupid prices.

      Ryannumber1gamer

      A scalper group with over 3,500 PS5s is trying to claim they're all doing it to support their families and blah blah blah.

      Ignore the fact that you need obscene money to buy that many PS5s to begin with, more than enough to support your families, but the fact that they're screwing many families and hard working people who deserve that console more than these pricks.

      Other scalpers are just sympathy baiting because they flat out feel bad for being called out, despite being assholes who fully deserve to be called on their selfish and exploitive actions.

      @Ryannumber1gamer Holy!

      Ugh, I can't stand people who treat others like fools. If the console costs something like 399 or 499 (Depending on local currency.) and they got 3,500 PS5's, that'd make the price spent on them to be a number beyond my comprehension!

      Looks like the kids have to live on caviar and wine again.

      It's just beyond unstable. I've had multiple crashes on PS5, crashes that are serious because they hard-lock the game and forces you to completely hard-shut down the PS5 (which causes a database rebuild - which a lot of people are reporting that too many of those can brick the console).

      There's a ton of bugs too. My friend was playing it a few nights ago when he came to visit, and he had a bug where Miles didn't get into his costume, and was still in his normal clothes, meaning he walked up to Uncle Aaron completely unmasked, says he's Spider-Man, and tops it off with a "He definitely didn't recognise me" right after.

      I got three hard crashes tonight alone. The first was the one I was forced to hard-shutdown the PS5 for - I had paused the game for a minute, came back - found my controller was completely unresponsive, then I tried to turn it off, same thing. I then had to force shut it down to get it off, and it damaged the file system.

      The second time, I was doing a speed challenge only for Miles to clip through a building, the camera freaks out, it drops to like 5fps, and then the game crashes completely.

      This time - I was doing a stealth challenge, I failed it, went back to try again, and it randomly freezes as I try to start it.

      Also for a fun addition, my first experience of Spidey Remastered was literally going into the game, the music stopping after a few seconds, trying to start a new game, and then the PS5 hard-locking, once again requiring a full forced reboot.

      Yeesh, that's pretty awful. I've had the PS4 version crash on me a couple times (mainly during the Enemy Base challenges) as well as some character audio just failing to load during some cutscenes (one of which, funnily enough, also involved Uncle Aaron).

      I thought those issues were mostly limited to the PS4 version, but to hear that the PS5 versions of both games are also having problems, especially ones potentially affecting the console itself is, uh... concerning, to say the least.

      I believe there was a patch released today (both for Miles and Remastered) so maybe that'll address the bugs and issues.

      I've had a crash, a graphical glitch where Miles goes to FEAST as just a head, and frame drops after playing the game for quite a while on PS4.

    6. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Unfortunately, the patch today just fixed the Advanced Suit bug in Miles (the one that let you play as Peter), and apparently fixed some of the crashes in rest mode.

      I'm playing on PS4 and I can't do certain Roxxon bases without the game freezing, it happens evey time. I can quit the game without having to hard reset the console tho', but one other time the game simply shut down and corrupted my save file. Thankfully, the game does a lot of backups, so I didn't lost anything.

      I played the PS4 version, and didn't encounter any of the glitches/crashes/slowdowns that people are talking about, with the exception of Miles appearing only with his head for a brief second. It makes me wonder what went wrong and why only specific people are experiencing the issues. :0 

    9. Emperor Robrainiac

      PS4 user here as well. The worst glitch I encountered was right when I booted it up. On the title screen, Miles Morales didn't show up and it booted me right into Harlem, where it gave me no direction and parts of the buildings didn't spawn in. 

      The only other glitch I encountered was the one mentioned above, with Miles' floating head. Otherwise, I didn't run into anything too bad.

    10. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Oh, forgot another bug.

      During the part where Miles chases Tinkerer throughout New York, I got to the boat part where you chase them on the side of the boat, except the boat didn't load, and Miles fell straight through the boat, and right through the map, immediately failing the mission.

      Oh yeah, the FEAST head glitch. Dunno why I forgot about that that one, I even had it happen in my playthrough too.

      I do recall the game getting a bit laggy after a long play session too, which often led to the aforementioned crashes when entering an enemy base.
