To be honest, Gnasty is kind of right to be laughing at the dragons for thinking sending him to their junkyark would end his terror. They should have just asked Princess Peach for advice.

And now it's a potion on the gems? I thought it was another spell.

And does anyone know where to find the site for Crash Twinsanity? Now THAT would be nostalgic. :3

If you say something that I disagree with, I'll say it.

Plus, I'm on a forum to debate, to talk, to discuss. If you don't want me to do that, then please explain to me the purpose of a forum.

That's what I thought, I hoped it wasn't because of the "greedy" thing (like most fans think) again, which I have an argument that can counter that.

Still, not a huge deal if you ask me.
I can't speak for other games cases, but Skylanders seems to be selling pretty well and getting good ratings so far, so I believe it's successful. I don't see Spyro getting "killed" any time soon.

It could be the 'greedy' thing some Classic fans say too.

Spyro getting 'killed' is only in the minds of fans who want to keep games the way they want want to be, same character designs, gameplay and such, and some think that nostalgia makes their lives fully complete.

There's several reasons to hate Bobby, and for the most part, he has the same reasons as I do.

HOWEVER, hating Bobby isn't a reason to hate Skylanders. That's where he messes up.

I don't get the "greedy" thing.
1. Skylanders is hardly much more expensive from CoD, AC, and all the other stuff people are getting these days.
2. It must've cost a lot of money to make the toys.
3. What, do they expect them to get the game for free? It's called "business". Who's going to be more successful in business? The idiot who "cares" about others and gives them the game for free or a very low price, or the guy who actually puts a (if you want to say, expensive) price on the game and gets the money?

Agreed. That can go for LoS and Classic fans. It's so sad how judgmental people these days are, especially considering how pixels can't technically die.

EDIT:
And agreed, CAV, I mean, if you hate Bobby than okay, but you shouldn't automatically hate all the games he makes. :l

The problem with Bobby is that he has openly admitted to wanting to exploit games that sell a lot of money, and focus on that alone. It's the reason why we would get CoD, Tony Hawk, and Guitar Hero on a yearly basis. But after a while, the latter 2 didn't sell well, so he stopped. He's still exploiting CoD (with MW3 out next week), and he's started to exploit Spiderman as well. Yeah, it's business. But that's no excuse to act this way.

That's why people hate him, and why people hate how Spyro and Crash is owned by Activision. They're afraid that he'll exploit those games as well.

But think about it: There is no Tony Hawk game this year. There is no Guitar Hero game this year. And MW3 didn't get as much hype as previous CoD games. So perhaps Bobby took the road that Sega did, and learned his lesson.

He admitted it? Really? I've never heard of that. Then, you're right, no excuse to act that way.
I wasn't just talking about Bobby in my last post, though, I was kinda talking about other things as well.

I heard about the Guitar Hero and Tony Hawk being "milked to death", but I never saw the huge problem. People hated the newer games of them anyway, so why's it a huge loss? It's like LoS or Classic Spyro: Quit wasting your time demanding new, better games and play the ones you have.
And I heard CoD is hugely successful?

Maybe he will. I have no idea on Crash's case, but Spyro's, isn't Skylanders selling well and getting good ratings? It seems to be successful, from my knowledge, so far, with the possible sequel to it (hopefully with the same toys).

I hope so, that'd be great.

I know you weren't just talking about him. But the bit towards me was my main focus. smilie

It was a problem. Tony Hawk, not so much. But there were 5-6 Guitar Hero related games in 2009 alone. It was definitely getting milked.

CoD is hugely successful. Both Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops are some of the fastest selling games of all time. Hell, Black Ops sold at least 5 million copies in the very first day of it's release, which is a world record.

Skylanders definitely has a chance of being milked. But the key word is "Skylanders", not "Spyro".

Ah, I hope you didn't misunderstand that, I wasn't saying you were hating all of Activision's games.

I figured Tony Hawk wasn't a huge problem, but wow. 5-6 in one year? I knew there were lots of Guitar Heros, but I didn't know those were all released in 2009 alone. I heard that Guitar Hero was just the same thing over with different songs after a while?

Wow, CoD's more popular than I thought. That's good. It's not getting milked at the moment, is it?

True, I hope Skylanders doesn't get a million sequels and such.
Maybe some other company'll buy it off of Activision?

Why are you guys allows implying I'm causing some sort of flame war when I simply pointed out that an Insomniac Spyro website is still up despite the fact Spyro now belongs to Activision so therefore the former would be taken down.

You all gained up on me in my sleep especially CAViar Shepard and on a Classic Spryo message board instead of the Skylanders one.

We're not implying that you're starting a flame war now. We're implying that you've done it in the past, and that you bumped a topic. Please read the posts a little more carefully.

People would gang up on me when I was sleeping. Hell, people still do. I'm not bugged. It's not like we're surrounding your house with Portals of Power to throw at you.

Also, what's up with that nickname? I get the caviar bit (even though I'm not a rich snob), but I don't get how the Shepard part comes in. Is it because of my avatar?

Yes it is. It's being milked more than any other franchise they have at the moment.

It is? I was implying that people should quit demanding new games and annoying the creators to make some new ones when they should just play the ones they have. I wasn't saying anything like they shouldn't be able to give negative opinions.

That's pretty stupid, because the older games didn't belong to Activision, so why the hell would it be taken down?
And I'll tell you what everyone tells me: "Too **cking bad. That's life, kid."

@CAV
Well, if Activision is just out for money as you said, then I can understand why'd they milk it for money, although as long as they're still making good games (in terms of gameplay and such), than it's okay, right?
Although I remember what you said, MW3 isn't getting as much hype so far...
