The only problem with using the old figures is that the NFC chips built into them aren't meant to last, I'm afraid. ;;



How long do RFID chips usually last?



10 to 20 years IIRC. According to another user, people are reporting dead Skylanders ready



Considering SSA turns 10 next year. Uh oh.

I recommend backing up all your figures data and copying them on to nfc cards/chips and yea around 10000 scans is accurate iirc

also if you get the smaller chips size ones in theory you should be able to a base off a figure and replace the chip with that with all the data intact and it should have a life span of about 100,000 scans

Eh, all the code is still in the games, it's just that the figures unlock them. If Activision were to do a Skyanders (trilogy) remaster, I'm pretty sure TFB/VV have all the data for the figures on a hard drive somewhere if they need it.

True, though I doubt there will be a trilogy remaster by how big Swap Force was.

Business-wise, it'd make sense to remake/remaster SSA, Giants and SF due to them being the most successful entries sales wise. SF also sold the best out of the 6 games, so it'd make sense to remake it along with SSA and Giants.

True but IMO SSA and Giants aged poorly. How would feel if the series continues without toys?

Wouldn't the point of remaking them be to fix what aged poorly in those two games, though?



IDK as N.Sane didn't fix anything neither did BFBB and you can't criticise remakes for being outdated. Swap Force was the push forward the series needed

N. Sane did fix a lot, though? Just because they didn't make it easy doesn't mean they didn't fix anything. (Being hard doesn't mean that a game is broken, btw)



Not the difficulty. The feel and controls still feel outdated and Clunky for me. Spyro had smoother and full analog support without removing what we loved about the original

That's entirely subjective, as the controls in N. Sane felt more or less perfectly fine to me. (I'll admit that the hitboxes and a few other minor things could have used some more work, though)

You're also comparing two platformers that are quite different in their overall presentation and gameplay, as Crash has different controls meant for a different type of gameplay than Spyro's.
(Crash is way more platform-heavy than Spyro is, and thus requires more precise timing and jumping among other things)

They also still changed a lot more than just the graphics, which you seem to be ignoring here.


What else beside visuals because I genuinely don't know.

One big change they made was making it to where only the colored gems in the first game require you to get all of the crates and not die, whereas the regular clear gems no longer require you to do the latter.
They also added a cut level from the original game as DLC and introduced a completely new level based off another cut level from the original game as DLC for Warped.

Relics (a.k.a time trials) were added to the first two games when they were originally exclusive to the third (Warped), and they also made Coco (Crash's sister) playable in almost all levels across all three games rather than just a few in Warped.

Those are some of the major changes, though there are more besides the above.


IMO i see them as minor but welcome things. Gameplay I feel nothing changed. I think VV played too safe but the remake did put remakes on the right track.

Those aren't minor whatsoever, but I digress.

VV didn't "play it too safe", they literally remade the games as everyone expected them to do. What were you expecting them to do? (Because clearly whatever you were expecting wasn't reasonable at all)



I feel a good remake should target old and new fans. If it targets only old fans it fails. If it targets only new fans it fails. What I want is a modern control scheme that can be accessible to new fans while the feel doesn't feel foreign to old fans. VV did small improvements. Small. Spyro did this right.

Ah, yes, that would explain why N. Sane did better on PS4 alone than Spyro did on both PS4 and XBO. Clearly none of those were casuals at all. Nope.

And VV didn't do "small" improvements, as what I listed off are objectively rather major all things considered.



Don't forget the Download patch, and delayed release date. Plus Skylanders just crashed and burned.

That has nothing to do with what I just said, but nice try I guess?



IDK. But I never liked crash to begin with and N.Sane didn't change that. The new things don't change the gameplay and if they do barely it still has clunky controls and gameplay is the most important thing in a game.

This is why I don't like talking about remakes no one knows what makes a "good" remake. Some people think it's just visual changes and minor new collectables. Others believe it should have modern controls while feeling familiar to retro players. As well as not afraid to do something new. You can point out all the new collectables but at the end of the day it's still an outdated PS1 title.

You saying something =/= it automatically being right, especially when you don't have a proper argument to begin with as I've dismantled it completely more than once.
(That, and you've contradicted yourself about N. Sane with that very post because you choose to either ignore the points I've made or downplay them based on your entirely subjective stance that changes nothing when it comes to the actual reality here)



How did I contradict myself?

You literally said that N. Sane didn't "change enough", when I literally listed off examples of things that are objectively (As in your entirely subjective opinion doesn't change the importance of) major changes.

You chose to ignore and downplay them because you don't care for it, when that doesn't change the fact that significant changes were made.
I could do the exact same thing you're doing here with N. Sane with Reignited and you'd be arguing with me over that, and it'd still be complete BS either way.



I see what it is. The changes you find Major I find minor. I feel like it doesn't change anything at the end of the day. In the grand scheme.

My least favorite is Super Shot Stealth Elf due to her auto aim mechanic. I like the idea of a Stealth Elf with a gun.

According to the reddit subtopic, it'll keep the "toys to life" formula, and toys will include GPS functionality.

Is this any kind of serious or is it just the same kind of poo that happened with Krakatoa and the second wave of senseis back in the time?
