  • 26:49 – Lack of industry standards? Nah, we think Activision was just too lazy to put subtitles in Spyro’s new pre-rendered cut-scenes
  • 40:30 – The new Lion King looks like the old Lion King
  • 49:37 – Why did Nintendo publish a video explaining how to prepare your Switch for trade-in or sale?

7:35 PMaddictedtochaosWhat they did say was very Activision

7:36 PMjordan thompsonso at this point spyro/crash bandicoot are used in skylanders they have their own hd rereleases so why would a sequel to either of these franchises be out of the question as many people believe
