Yeah, it could have easily ben a way to make the horns themselves very visible.
No need to keep that detail now that we have much more complex shaders and colors, but it’s still a nice extra for all of those who grew up with the NTSC version (and I honestly don’t mind it at all).

Kinda random thought, but I basically just realized that what makes me truly hyped about these remakes is the amount of time I’ll (hopefully) spend playing them.
It’s not just a matter of meatier and longer titles compared to the ones in the N. Sane Trilogy, but also the facts the levels themselves are a joy to replay even without actually needing to complete new objectives.

I can already imagine myself gliding all over Tree Tops to gaze at the starry sky, or exploring every nook and cranny of the new Summer Forest and Autumn Plains or even just walking through Crystal Islands; I soooo want to get lost in these levels like I still do with the originals.
I’ve always got excited just thinking about the possibility of the remakes and only now I finally understood why: Crash was a nice warm up but here is where things get serious.

Damn, I’m over-hyping myself again. smilie

Spyro Mugs! 8D



OH MY GOD THEY DECAPITED SPYRO!!


Glad I’m not the only one who thought that.
The mug is really cool and I’m just joking, but it does give off some kind of... unsettling feeling. smilie

Would love mugs (or even other objects) inspired by the second and third game’s vases and baskets though.

Yeah, unfortunately I think they only tried to make the remade orb challenges more exciting and intriguing.
They could add extra orbs for certain harder versions, like Insomniac originally did for the tribesmen or the ice hockey, but I’m not expecting anything brand new.

The only orb challenge I could see them adding is the harder version of the "save the hippo" mission in Shady Oasis, where you had to rescue 15 hippos instead of 8.

They could go a step further and add more loose orbs scattered around the various levels, but I’m not sure if those would count as “challenges”.

To be fair I cannot think about many other challenges which could use an harder version, except for maybe the lava monsters one in Magma Cone and another one which I hope will stay the same.
We don’t want more trouble with the trolley, right...?

EDIT: didn’t understand there was actually a cut orb challenge in Shady Oasis!
Guess that’s almost a given, if this is true of course.

I’m not a super fan of this redesign, not because of how it looks but because of how I would have imagined it to be.
It’s a very similar situation to the Artisans’ Gnorcs, except those ones weren’t supposed to look ugly and “manacing” in my opinion, while this one serves the purpose much better than its PS1 counterpart.

Gnorcs are most likely the enemies TfB (rightfully) took the majority of liberties with, at least looking at other ones like the Green Wizards, Egg Thieves or bulls.
I think they are aiming at uniqueness rather than faithfulness, which is fine as long as they at least keep their original idea; not to mention we have still to see how they look in action.
I wonder if they’ll make the other big Gnorcs in Dark Hollow and the snow ones in Wizard Peak just recolors with different accessories or if they’ll change their designs as well.

Hope for TfB to release concept arts like they did for High Caves and Town Square!

I like it, but I don't love it. A bit too WoW fantasy compared to Spyro's cartoon fantasy. It's also sorta generic.

People are being way too nitpicky, imo

Agree.

Even bringing up concept arts really isn’t helpful in this case, as the designers probably drew them with said limitations in mind.
Besides, I feel like I might be in the minority here but I never felt like these big Gnorcs were cute.
Sure, they had big eyes and funny smiles, but they were still towering over Spyro with armors and clubs.

Can’t really expect the cross between gnomes and orcs to look beautiful and friendly, even though all designs so far kept the goofy aspect.
Not to mention they go really well with the environment and general art-style, which I think is where these remakes will truly shine in terms of faithfulness (they even kept the checkered floor tiles).

EDIT: the only thing I would touch up is the metal “armor”.
We already knew they wouldn’t have used the highly reflective and lighter shader from the originals because of the way the metal chests look (I’ll add a picture at the end) but I really think a closer color and effect would compliment the overall design more and also be easily recognizable by players.

That way they could still use this type of metallic texture for other purposes and add even more variety.
Hope this is one of those things they can easily tweak, but it wouldn’t be a huge deal if they couldn’t.

I’d say a mix of both, but definitely more A Hero’s Tail than Skylanders.
Not all of them though, the Gem Thief and Snowball Trooper look more Skylanders-ish with the former looking as accurate to the original model as possible, in my opinion.

These remakes look like a mixed bag in terms of enemy designs, but I’ve yet to see one character which doesn’t fit the general mood.

I dunno, the gnorcs here look “dirtier” than the gnorcs in AHT.

The textures on the gnorcs in AHT are smoother, and they don’t have as much detail. Imo.

Guess that has to do with technical limitations too, even if to a lesser extent (and of course the different art direction as well).

Found this edit on Reddit and have to say I quite prefer this over the official design.
They didn’t try to morph it beyond ridiculousness and didn’t mess with the colors, but the simplified face manage to stay closer to the PS1 model while keeping the less friendly and less cute overall look:

[User Posted Image]

I would be fine if they stayed as they are but this is a change I’d happily accept.

(I honestly find it kinda funny how there's a number of people complaining about Gnorcs not looking "Cute anymore"... when their official lore since Game 1 was that Gnorcs are basically suppose to be the doubly ugly, disgusting and revolting offspring hybrid of Orcs and Gnomes hdsjkahdjsa)


Also, I'm surprised I haven't seen anyone complain about the lack of useless tiny wooden shield on the Gnorc's arm.

He's holding it in his right hand. (So your left) I didn't even realize that he had it at first because of how dark it looks, and I kind of forgot he had one in the original game, but it's there.

This is “just” a concept art, and thus may not rapresent what the game looks like right now as we’ve already seen... But if this is what they are aiming for... OOOOH, MAN, we are in for something incredible.

Don't worry, the game actually includes the candles. Looking at trailer when Spyro runs through different levels, one of those levels is Dark Hollow, and the candles are there. The Gnorc Screenshot has some candles as well.

I don’t think they will do it for every level, but I’m convinced they will try it when possible to make each location even more unique than it already is.
Another good example is how they are making Blowhard wind-themed by adding windmills where plain towers used to be.

Guessing they’ll only do it with the first game though, as all the levels from the sequels have a very distinct theme to them.

Also, forgot to say I’m really glad TfB keeps “answering” the official accounts’ posts with concept arts related to them.
Would be cool to have them as unlockables inside the game, but I guess they’d want to make money out of a proper artbook.

Surprised no one on the Internet complained about how the lighting in Dark Hollow’s room will make Spyro disgustingly blue.
Perhaps people are understanding how lighting works. smilie

Ohhhhh, no, see, no one complains about the concept art. Only the actual 3D stuff we get.

I've already seen a handful of comments talking about how they're just waiting for the 3D Modeling Department to "Mess it up"....

....


Never mind that lighting isn't THAT department's job gdaskjgdhjsa


One hypothetical idea that occasionally pops into mind, is the idea of concept art being able to be unlocked in-game, and being tied to the eggs in Spyro 1.

Would certainly be a cool way to fix the feeling that collecting the eggs not really doing anything =p
