Poll and Questionnaire: Do you want more condensed or standalone Merchandise Retailer Listing?


So, it has become somewhat of a problem as an author of Crashy News to cover retailer listing for merchandise, since so many stores are listing it. I feel somewhat the same for video game releases too but that’s not much of an issue since people are more likely to care about those than merchandise.

Anyways, this is a poll and a questionnaire to let me understand what people would rather want: Do you want more condensed or standalone Merchandise Retailer Listing?

[NOTICE] Multi-Interview Deadline Extended to Sunday 11:30pm EST


Hey guys, just letting you that while the fourth wave has missed its release for Friday, it will still come later on this weekend. I’ve extended the deadline to 11:30pm EST on a Sunday, so you can still submit yours. See previous post for details.

That means that it should be coming on Monday at 1pm EST

[REMINDER] Submit your responses for the upcoming wave (Multi-interview)


Please note that the fourth wave might not come this Friday due to low submission rate, but it is still recommended for at least two submissions before the deadline.

The Deadline will be at: 12PM EST – Friday March 30th 2018

Anyways, submit your multi-interview responses via the following hubs:

Contact page or private messaging on Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr. Those are the following questions that you need to answer:

1. Before we start, can you tell when and how did you discover Crash, and what’s your favourite experiences with the games?

2. What do you think in retrospect, defines a good Crash game? How do you think it should feel and look?

3. How should Activision approach the next game after N. Sane/CTR for commercial and critical success? How can the classic formula evolve from there?

4. Even though the N. Sane Trilogy has reset the franchise back to the beginning, do you think it can still re-incorporate characters, lore and gameplay ideas from the PS2-era games, or should it be left behind for brand new ideas?

5. What do you think about the franchise possibly becoming exclusive to PlayStation again? Do you think it should expand into other platforms?

6. Are you supportive of Crash being adapted into other media (TV, comic books, etc.)? If so, which direction should it take?

[NOTICE] Delayed Third Wave of Multi-interviews on the way (Deadline is Friday 1PM EST)


Hey everyone,

I would just like to let you all know that the deadline for your submissions of the multi-interview questions will be at 1PM EST on Friday this week, there was no publication done last week due to lack of interest, hopefully there will be for this week and beyond.

Yet again, the “Notables” release date and time is still yet to be defined due to the circumstance. There’s consideration for making an article about orders for N. Sane Trilogy in Asia and other countries/regions but I need your help with locating some notable retailers in some countries of Asia.

Anyways, submit your multi-interview responses via the following hubs:

[NOTICE] Delay of the Multi-interview for fans (1:30PM to 3PM EST)


Hey everyone,

Please note that due to a few delays happening with a few interviewees, I am delaying the “Fans” component of the Multi-interview from 1:30PM to 3PM EST (Deadline is 2:30PM EST on Friday tomorrow).

The “Notables” release date and time has been indefinitely changed depending on the circumstance so far. Please also note that there’s a new article in the works regarding Crash Landed, some things need to be done before it’s out, no date or time set yet.

A new year, a new logo: Introducing a brand new identity for Crashy News


new2018bannertotal

After a long wait and well, a speedy poll that I quickly made, I’m proud to say that Crashy News is getting a brand new logo not crafted by me. This time, it’s crafted by Haris of The Wumpa Zone, who has volunteered to help with the new logo (I did not hesistate to let him do so) with the logo that I’ve been personally exploring beforehand but never quite materialized until today, a surprise rebranding that moves away from the traditional “C” Letter that the site has been long known for and gives a fresh new-coot on the hood.

The new logo embodies the past with a wacky font and a brand new bandicoot head that only makes the new identity more personal, fun and in-line with the timely reporting of the bandicoot news. This logo was of course done in the spirit of all fans around the world. For those who also wanted a new theme to make the early “pre-spring” cleaning for 2018, I have been exploring a new theme to replace this one but for the time being, the slight refresh before the brand new logo is doing absolutely fine (for now). Over time, I will be continuing the exploration for slowly updating the theme of the site to make it more fitting with the new identity and keep it from being stale.

Tell us in the comments on what do you think of the brand new logo!
