I'm tempted to get Spyro
@ImagineerNik Yeah Spyro is the best IMO! I always thought Crash games were overrated, and I hated the way they ruined Nitro-Fueled with micro-transactions.
I don't have Spyro yet but still not tempted at that price digitally. Can actually get it physically at the moment for only slightly more.
@rjejr does this help justify the other random article 😉
Gutted I payed £27 each last Friday on amazon, still spyro was worth it however I noticed in handheld (not played docked) it has this weird feint dotted pattern across the screen
Not bad prices for the eshop to be fair.
If I didn't already have all 3 on Ps4 I'd be very interested
@BenAV While I vastly prefer physical versions, in this case it still means downloading 2/3 of the package, so getting it fully digital is more convenient.
@gaga64 Only for the people reading in Europe. 😎
Okey dokey, I think it's time to double dip on Spyro.
Haven't played it since the week of the PS4 launch and 100%'ed the 3 games.
And for £5.83 per title that's a steal to me! Especially as it's a super nostalgic game for me as a 90s kid.
Still doesn't beat the time for pc they were in a $12 bundle with a COD.
Y'all always keep saying europe, yet the prices are always in pounds
Spyro is 100% worth that price. I just finished all three a few months back and the trilogy is my 4th most played (in terms of hours) title I own. I really enjoyed all three, however I will say after beating each one I needed a break before starting the next one...
I’ve been waiting for Spyro to go on sale digitally so I could pick it up. Hopefully we see a similar sale stateside.
Edit: so these are on sale on the US eShop too, $19.99 each. Guess I’ll be grabbing Spyro this weekend.
Same deal going on for those of us in the States.
I'm so glad I tried Crash Team Racing. It's awesome. Don't let the new drift boost system scare you. Play on easy for learning if needed, or do time trials. It's so worth it.
I've been fighting my urge to buy spyro for weeks...and now I got it 50% off! Good things come to those who wait!!! 😋
Tempted to buy Crash Team Racing, but I've heard the introduction of microtransaction kind of ruined it for some people. Someone care to elaborate why they think so? Also, are the load times still as atrocious as when it launched or things improved in subsequent patches?
@Preposterous I'll still take 1/3 over 0/3. That is the main reason I'm reluctant to buy it at all though. It's pretty cheap at the moment and I'm still feeling that it's too much. Currently at $39 (Australian). If it ever drops like $10 further I'll think about it.
Spyro Trilogy and Crash Trilogy are £14.66 from the Norwegian eShop.
Spyro is brilliant guys, if you like 3D platformer collectathons it will suit you down to the ground.
I will pick Spyro up if it’s US eshop as well
@Realnoize Honestly, i think the microtransactions is almost a nonexistent issue since the devs had been upping the amount of wumpa you can get and the new content more than makes up for it. I never felt like i had to buy them.
As for as the loading, it is still not great. I think the bigger problem is Online issues.
If am also being honest, you should just get it on PS4. That verison is the most populated.
@tc-senzei Agreed. The euro is the most common currency in Europe. Let's see those prices.
CTR is a great racing game. Highly recommend.
Thanks for the reply. But problem is, I rarely play my PS4 anymore because it's bound to the basement TV. Most of my game time is done away from the TV, mostly in the train rides to/from work everyday. So I don't care about online play. I just like racing games in general.
@Realnoize The micro transactions are redundant. You can just do it over time and it's all cosmetic. Also, if you have a turbo controller you can farm AFC and get everything in a month or so. You'll get a decent amount of content just doing the vanilla game and earn coins on the way, anyway.
@Woomy_NNYes Is there still an active online community for Crash Team Racing? I'm always disappointed to find 3rd party racers quickly become online ghost towns a few months after release. I picked up Team Sonic Racing a couple months ago and was shocked to see the online was already mostly dead. It seems like on the Switch if you want to race online, it's MK8D or nothing... All the more reason we need cross platform play on games like this.
@BenAV I see your point. I'd have skipped it entirely if Spyro wasn't one of my favourite PS games, but I managed to get it digitally for ~25 AUD (65 PLN), which is quite a bargain.
@vio Crash Team Racing online activity has seemed strong all year. I've got over 300 hours in CTR, 250 hours in MK8. (I've had MK8 since its launch in 2017). I've barely touched MK8 since i got CTR. Granted, I already put 250 hours into MK8 and was burned out on it. (I also got Sonic Team Racing just before CTR released, and only put 10 hours on that)
While CTR online has seemed strong, it does have its caveats. A 50 second load screen before an online race. And two 40-50 load screens after the race. The load screen times appear to be the same across all consoles: ps4, xbox, switch.
Offline load screens are about the same, too, for some reason.
Since CTR came out, its common for the online lobby to hiccup -load a group of racers, lose them, & repopulate a new group.
In spite of that, its still an impressive kart racer. There's good racing & 38 cool tracks. All tracks are available from the beginning. Its $39.99 (and even better on sale for $19.99). I put about 15 hours into adventure mode focusing on regular races (skipping relic & "CTR" races many times because those aren't needed to advance adventure mode). If you're only interested in online, I'm still so impressed with the game that I recommend buying & trying it. If you like kart racers, this is a very good one.
