[POLL] What Spyro the Dragon games do you reckon will be included on the PlayStation Classic?


With the recent announcement of PlayStation Classic and the reveal of only 5 games out of 20 pre-loaded video games so far, people have been wondering what other classics will be bundled when the mini retro console will arrive on December 2018.

So, the question is, what games from the PS1 games will Spyro do you reckon will be included in this retro throwback console when it arrives on December 3, 2018?

Quickies: First 4 Figures Mini Aku Aku and Neo Cortex Updates


We’ve got some quick updates from F4F’s last Friday Q&A regarding Mini Aku Aku and Neo Cortex figures, so let’s get started:

  • The Mini Aku Aku figures are not part of the main Crash Bandicoot lineup of figures and neither a requirement to obtain
    • so whatever your statue number is on this piece will not reserve you the rights to the same statue number for Dr. Neo Cortex
    • Preorders open Q4 2018 for the figures
  • Speaking of Neo Cortex, Alex is concerned about the poll results on Facebook hitting 500 votes since Warp Star Kirby did similarly

That’s all for now, you can check the original blog post here. You can also check the preorder dates for the Mini Aku Aku figures on Trello.

Happy Birthday, Crash Bandicoot! (22 Years Anniversary – NA)


It’s been around two months since Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy was released again to the masses on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Steam on PC. It’s still doing decently, even though the buzz has been going down in anticipation for the future of Crash Bandicoot next year. Today, according to the Eastern Standard Timezone, is the 22nd anniversary of Crash Bandicoot of the first ever debut original game, Crash Bandicoot for the PS1, which was released on September 9, 1996. Spyro The Dragon’s 20th anniversary is this weekend, as a shout-out to our fellow pals there.

We might post the top fandom creations in a few condensed posts like last year. Stay tuned for any news that might arise, we might miss it so tip us ASAP.

Correction: It looks like many of us including me have been duped into believing that today is Spyro’s 20th anniversary, which is actually tomorrow. Unfortunately, this seems to have occurred multiple times, even on this site. I apologize for any inconvenience, this error will be corrected across the site and social pages. Further corrections will still be made as time goes on.

Annual PSA: Crash Bandicoot’s anniversary is not tomorrow. (22 years since the original PS1 release)


It’s that time of the year again, where we are celebrating yet another milestone for the franchise as the actual anniversary (September 9th) approaches from the release date of Crash Bandicoot (PS1) in North America. Unfortunately, people have been misled by several sources as August 31st 1996 (even legitimate ones), when it is actually September 9th, 1996, which can be seen in the launch poster above, thanks to NetYaroze for the collection picture including the poster (This poster can also be seen on Naughty Dog’s old Crash Bandicoot website, archived).
