Games Done Quick: The First Step – “Crash Bandicoot” Trilogy (PS1)

The First Step is a weekly show brought to you by GDQ Hotfix and regular hosts JHobz and Keizaron. Speedrunning can be intimidating to get started with, but it doesn’t have to be! Learn just how easy it can be by utilizing semi-blind races — races of games you’ve played before, but never tried to speedrun — and (hopefully) find a few laughs along the way. Tune in live on Thursdays at 7pm Eastern at to race alongside the hosts! This edition of The First Step aired on June 23rd 2022.

Darkaiser: Crash Team Racing – E3 1999 B-Roll Promotional Footage

An extended gameplay clip of the SCEA B-Roll found on an old VHS footage from E3 1999. The B-Rolls were a gameplay video recorded internally by Sony employees or developers, then sent to the media outlets across America and Europe for preview purposes. The CTR B-Roll was first showcased during the game’s reveal at E3 1999 and later pre-release coverage. The full length is unknown, but a few more gameplay chunks were included in the mini trailer for the E3 kiosks, which was later bundled with the Test Drive demo disc. Apparently SCEE had their own B-Roll recording too, but this is not very clear.

Crash Team Racing but it’s played on the PS2 in the early 2000s

Neo_Kesha: Unseen prototype of Crash Evolution (Twinsanity)

I got this build from anonymous sources. Build required some patching from me, because it supposed to run on PS2 DevKit and not retail PS2 or emulator.

This prototype is dated around February 2003, thanks for the tip, BetaM!
