I think so! (But you can also wait until it goes on sale and play one of the other 200 games worth playing these days.) Read more

After two decades I was finally able to beat Spyro 1 and 3's remake this year. I do recall playing the hell out of the original demo of the first game. Spyro 2 on PS1 on the other hand was probably the first game I 100% completed as a kid. All three games have that (not necessarily mind-blowing) pleasant soundtrack Read more

The Castlevania / Contra collection is weird since they already have the Castlevania Anniversary Collection and the Contra Anniversary Collection on PC (thought not on GOG from what I can see?), which include the games in this collection. Why would Konami want to support two different releases for the same games, Read more

Finally a franchise I recognize lol, but still haven’t played. I got into gaming more as I got older, my parents didn’t let us have a gaming system growing up so I was exposed only via friends.

The first time a game soundtrack really grabbed me and elevated my mood while playing to a completely different level? Well, it depends partially on just how high we’re setting the bar.

There were many other games whose OSTs tickled my aural sensibilities long before Spyro came along (SNES Square RPGs, Journey to Silius, various Mega Mans, etc.). However, Spyro was the first voiced character that really captivated me. He was just so stinking cute. I remember playing a demo of the game from OPM that Read more

My sister sings in a choir that was performing a show composed by Copeland called Satan’s Fall. When she told me he was coming to town to work with the choir last year I half-jokingly suggested that she ask him to autograph my old Spyro game that I’ve had since the ‘90s. So she actually went to my dad’s house and

While Spyro wasn’t the first game to make me sit and take stock of game music (The first two Ace Combat games probably beat it by a year), ti stands tall as one of my favourite soundtracks to date. For me it’s the ethereal synths, organs and chimes, juxtaposed against the kicking basslines and syncopated drumwork that Read more

I had no idea Stewart Copeland composed the music for Spyro, what a crazy world we live in!

I bought Endless Space on a Steam sale a few years ago. I was psyched to try out some quiet, galactic strategy. I fired it up while I was stoned, spent about 30 minutes trying to figure anything out, and figured nothing out. Never opened it again.

I have a question, did you pop it open to verify that it’s an actual black drive with a large cache in the enclosure?  I trust this company about as far as I could launch their CEO with a swift kick in the nuts.

FlyByNo is fantastic. I’ve introduced his ES2 soundtrack to my friends during our weekly online D&D sessions and now they’re all converts. Read more
