Crash Bandicoot!

Hey peoples, here comes a brand new mini-series! Today, we're starting Crash Bandicoot for the PS4!

Here's the opening for ya:


Here's a link to the playlist on Youtube too, if you'd rather have a gander at it over there:


For those of you who don't know about Crash, it's a 3D platformer, but still with 2D stuff going on; you might be going left to right but you can move a bit to the background and foreground etc.

This game was naturally not made by me. The companies involved are: Activision, Vicarious Visions and (though unmentioned for the most part) Naughty Dog.

Anyways, I hope you enjoy what's to come! It should come to about a week total :).

Episode 1 - Papu's Cracking Murder Attempt!

https://youtu.be/82zBVeF39LE


Hey peoples, we're starting! I feel like we make a good amount of progress in 20~ minutes, which I feel is important in an LP of a platformer :).

This time around, Crash decides to sunbathe at the beach, roll around in the jungle, explore a gate that is pretty darn great, run from a giant boulder, relax in a river full of piranhas, talk to a guy with a huge buttcrack (not insulting people with huge buttcracks), meets up with his sister and listens to some Rolling Stones. He's a busy guy.

Thanks for watching! Hog Wild is coming next and I love those sorts of stages sooooo much! :D

Episode 2 - Ride That Pig!

https://youtu.be/F98mpZPNEf8


Hey peoples, Crash is back for some more relaxing fun!

Today, he decides to annoy the local pigs, persevere through a heavily guarded fortress, check out the local flora at the river, has a chat with some crazy kangaroo thing and find a sparkly green, coloured gem at a city that's ever so lost! ;)

Thanks for watching! More coming tomorrow! :)

Episode 3 - Those Sunset Views

https://youtu.be/0zdRewWbtes


Hi! Today Crash has decided to don his Indiana Jones hat and explore a lost temple! He does plenty more too, such as crossing a hell of a rickety and foggy bridge, running away from another boulder although he desperately wants to hug it, gasping at the views of sunset and finding a key to a brand new pig to ride! More on that last one next time though ;).

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit! :)

Episode 4 - He Skipped Leg Day

https://youtu.be/2w9d9etfjI4


Hey peoples, Crash notices there's a 3rd island with a giant tower on it today! I mean, before that he chases pigs again for a bit and kills a random koala, but otherwise he checks out some much missed machinery and attempts to turn the power on in the generator room!

Thanks for watching! See you again in a bit! :)

P.S. I'll be going back to 1080p next time. I wanted to try an episode in 720p and see how it turned out.

Episode 5 - Pottering In The Dark

https://youtu.be/qBVYSOBqP1g


Hey peoples, we've made it to all of the trickier stages, all in one episode :/.

Today, Crash is up for playing around in toxic waste, picking a fight with an infamous gun collector, scrambling along a high bridge (ughhhh), climbing a slippery tower in the rain and going through some sort of castle where the lights just don't stop flickering...

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit! :)

Episode 6 - End Of The Line

https://youtu.be/IkAM_Mw0K5k


Hey peoples, today we're wrapping up all of the normal stages! We also backtrack to Lights Out to nab the final coloured gem ;).

So, Crash has a few ideas for his holiday today. He finds another temple with traps galore, traverses through another dark castle (bills last paid circa 1800), plays around with some castle machinery, takes on some mad scientist with his own potions and goes to the source of the lab as well!

Thanks for watching! We'll be going for the box gems next! :)

P.S. Yep, longer episode. There's a load of progress made though and to me, that makes longer LP episodes bearable in general :).

Episode 7 - The Trouble With Boxes

https://youtu.be/0jL-vyZuGWw


Hey there folks, today we're going on a gem hunt! While a lot of it may be backtracking to old stages, there are some new areas on those stages, since we've collected the coloured gems and stuff.

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit! :)

Episode 8 - Secrets In The Great Hall!

https://youtu.be/I5bXWM1CGhY


Hey peoples, here's the last of the main game! We collect the last of the clear gems, check out the secret ending via The Great Hall, take down Cortex (foiling his evil plans) and watch the credits!

There will be one more episode and it'll be really soon regardless of what I say in the video. The DLC came out quicker than I thought it would :).

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit for the grand finale! :)

Episode 9 - Stormy Ascent

https://youtu.be/vsJuSYCjD0I


Hey peoples, welcome to the last of Crash 1! Today, we're going for the DLC stage that was apparently cut out of the original game since it was too hard for the old stiff controls to handle. God help us...

Thank you so much for checking out this series! I've had so much fun playing and recording the series, along with replying to the comments :). There will be a Crash 2 series coming soon, but there's another mini-series coming first. Will be with you shortly with more Crash! See you in a bit! :)
