Yes, I know that. But it's unnecessary IMO cause other characters warn you that Cortex is being manipulative. Just cut it out and have it make more sense.


I really don't see how it's unnecessary? It already makes sense, so it'd be more unnecessary to remove it for no reason.

I dunno, it's a dumb thing that annoys me the tiniest bit. It won't affect my enjoyment of the remasters at all, but it's just stupid that the game has a plot that actively tells you that you shouldn't play the game to defeat the main villain

I can kind of understand it.

The game's story is that Cortex is tricking Crash, which works from Crash's perspective, but not the player's, because they saw the opening where he's plotting and thereby know he's up to no good.

Though the title "Cortex Strikes Back" doesn't really help in that regard either.

Which is why I said it makes sense from Crash's perspective.

I dunno, I just think it would be better if the player didn't initially know and they were guessing up til the end whether or not they could actually trust him, or something like that.

Some people have been saying this game might not be a PS4 exclusive. It doesn't have the "Only on" signal on the boxart and it didn't appeared on the PlayStation 4 exclusive games for 2017 video.

Thoughts?

On one hand, I think it makes sense for it to be PlayStation exclusive since it's a remake of a PlayStation exclusive game.

On the other hand, if it isn't exclusive, that could potentially mean I can play it.

Yeah, to the above four posters, you DO know that Sony, not Activision, owns the publishing rights to Crash 1-3 (and Spyro 1-3), right? SCE America published those games, and Universal (the original IP owner before Activision) only distributed the games in North America. I don't know how many times that's been said on this site.

I'd give up your multiplatform hopes right now, because if ActiBlizz could do multiplatform, the original Crash and Spyro games would have shown up on Steam/XBLA/Wii U eShop ages ago. <.<

Just like how they think they should release the Crash remakes only on PS4, same for potential Spyro remakes, Only on PS4 because it'll make them good. They should also get Naughty Dog to make Crashy games again, despite having a almost an entirely different team.

A few news that we got over the time:

  • The characters will have lots of new animations.
  • Coco's voice actor from Titans/Mind Over Mutant returns. N. Gin's most recent voice actor might be coming back too.
  • Each game's controls will be exactly like before, so don't expect stuff like sliding on Crash 1.

They look too realistic. It just don't work for Crash.

I was expecting something closer to his Skylanders incarnation, which I love the style of. Not UE4 lighters and detailed fur that make this feel like a fan-remake.

This game isn't animated-looking enough... Yes, of course it copies the great animations of the original games, but with these graphics it's serious style dissonance and it's still not what it could have been. Look how great R&C PS4 looks and how it used motion blur. Imagine how much better this would look with that kind of focus.

Also some of the stuff here looks so blocky or flat eeuugh (trees, edges of the cliffs in the snow boulder levels that look like PS2-level models).

I know there's going to be a lot of data on this disc and Acti are probably rushing VV a little so they'd have to cut corners anyway, and I'm still glad to see something with Crash that isn't Mutants junk (coming from someone who sort of liked those games, but they just aren't Crash), but I just don't like this style for him at all. I feel like even the sound effects don't have as much impact as in the original games.

It's not even "realistic", though. Attention to detail, such as the fur on Crash =/= realistic. It's just the natural step to modern graphics.

And you need to seriously go back and look at PS2 models, because even the best PS2 games don't look that good.

Your standards are waaaay too high, try again. Disliking the style is one thing, tossing out false criticisms is another.

I'm not talking about the whole screenshot, but the edges of the cliffs in this shot. They look so bad and have no model detail or depth at all, the only thing masking it is the shading in the textures themselves. And hell, look at those pebbles in the dirt. There's no depth to them, and while those are excellent textures, it's blatantly obvious they're just textures- which is why I feel like they look PS2-ish.

To clarify: I'm not saying this looks like a PS2 game. Not even a PS3 game. The shading is too detailed. I was talking about those cliff models specifically. They look awful to me.

And yes, detailed fur =/= realistic- again, R&C looks fantastically animated and Ratchet has very detailed fur there- but I don't feel it was done right here or that it works for Crash. His fur's all so thin and colored too realistically and he has so much and just the timing in his movement and the stretch and lack of motion blur all feel off to me.

And "try again"? What? I'm stating my honest opinions and I feel like that came across as mean, Sess. I don't understand how my problems with this aren't legitimate criticism, these are legitimate problems for me, I don't know how else to explain myself. I'm sorry if I seem to be nitpicking now, but I'm really not in a good mood today and I'm really not feeling good about the style of this game. I've been thinking about them for a long while... But no. They just don't gel with me, and I don't get how so many people like these graphics.

Even discounting the style, pretending this is a new game: again, it just feels like style dissonance. The animation and shading and models just don't go together, and I'd still feel this way if this was some new IP or something. It doesn't feel like a professional project to me.

The way you explained it before didn't make any sense, but thank you for clarifying. smilie

I suppose I can see what you're getting at, but I don't agree in the slightest. It doesn't look too realistic whatsoever, and I think it fits Crash perfectly fine.
It does seem a little rough around the edges, I'll admit that much, but do keep in mind that this likely isn't the final product.

You're welcome. Well, I'm somewhat relieved we can just agree to disagree then.
And yeah, it probably isn't the final thing but that's what I was thinking with earlier stuff... We'll see, I guess, there's still more half the year left before this comes out.

Also, disclaimer if anyone was thinking this: never meant to take a jab at anyone who likes the graphics. If you do, then more power to you, I'm just genuinely surprised most people seem to be praising them even with the style change and I've been really curious about why the whole time. smilie

Honestly, Drawdler, I also like Crash's Skylanders model better; it seems to stay a bit truer to his old one. It's like the current one looks too... zany, or something. I can't really put a finger on why -- it's not his fur or his eyes or anything. Maybe because his pants look more like sweatpants than jeans.

#134 Posted: 15:40:17 15/02/2017 | Topic Creator
I prefer Skylanders Crash because he seems more expressive, and I like his fur color palette more. I still enjoy this game's visuals except for Crash, but I feel it's a lower budget project, that's why it doesn't look perfect, and some things may look strange.

Oh, news flash.

News are coming tomorrow. According to this tweet, it may be the official release date.
