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!

Crashy News: 2017 in Review


November 2017

The year 2017 was quite eventful, even with some of it being absurdly unimaginable or outright ridiculous as a followup from 2016, it was absolutely stellar with video games, especially with the fact that Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy has caused quite a buzz being successful and notable at the same year. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy had an average of 80 on Metacritic and OpenCritic, with it selling between 3-4 million worldwide, according to Daniel. That’s not counting the dozens of merchandise that had been coming out, from mugs, t-shirts and so on. Two most notable ones were the PVC First 4 Figures and Funko Pops, personally speaking.

Crashy News is now on it’s 6th year, in 2016 alone getting a huge boost with the release and hype of N. Sane Trilogy, going through the news, leaks, rumors, events and fandom creations. Crashy News has reached a total of 320K total views, double the amount of 2016’s total views. The most viewed post has received 11,623 views (Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy “Limited Edition” @ Showgame Italy). Let’s go in details over what happened and what has Crashy News has achieved this year.
