Spyro the Dragon by DarkmaneTheWerewolf Spyro the Dragon by DarkmaneTheWerewolf
Been re-discovering the game recently, and was talking to someone about it for a bit too XD. I freaking loved the classic Spyro games to bits, got each one on launch day as a kid and i actually remember distinctly hearing two older boys going into the store as i left (I was still a kid at the time), one said to the other "Thats the game i really want to get" and they were considerably older, probably my current age or a bit younger XD buying a cutesey Dragon game. It was funny at the time because the older boys would usually be into the "Cool" games, or at least don't openly admit to liking anything but the "Cool" games.

Anyway, though i still got the originals, i've been unable to play them since i've stored my psx and ps2 away. Now however, they've all been released on psn, i bought all 3 and have really missed playing them XD I have to say, the skateboarding minigames in the third game is probably my favorite part aside from boss fights and chasing thieves =p.

(I still remembered the code to make Spyro change colours =p Pause and input ^ < v > ^ [] r1 r2 l1 l2 ^ > v < ^ then the button for the colour you want or ^ and v)

I believe the rights to Spyro actually belongs to Activision right now? But props to Insomniac for the original creation and design.

Wait, WHAT?!? Are you saying you don't have a PS3, but have a PSP instead? You didn't know that you can play PS1 disc games on the PS3?

Well, I don't have the earlier models to compare the weight. Its still a Phat PS3, not a slim or superslim, but it is a later version of the big PS3 that only has 2 USB ports and the HDD is 80GB (I can confirm its 80GB because i've taken it out and replaced it with a 320GB one =p), so its not backwards compatable.

I can actually play the original disks on my computer via ePSXe, but 2 and 3 have anti-piracy protection that acts up because I'm not playing on an actual PSX. I've extracted a subpanel ppf patch from the disk but Spyro 3 is still a bit buggy and can't be finished =(

I love this picture! <3

 

I enjoyed all the Spyro games, but the original and Spyro 2, Ripto's Rage have to be my favorites, especially as far as replayability goes. I loved the newer Dawn of the Dragon to bits but it's replay value fades over time. It was amazing the first play through though. c:

Indeed =p the original 3 spyro games (Especially the second and third) werefantastic games with so much replayability, even getting it off the Playstation Network again, i'm loving every second of it all over again.

The Legend of Spyro games, though i really enjoyed the story (And i really like Cynder) they wern't great in terms of gameplay compared to the first 3 and i think thats what makes its feel a bit tedious to play over again >< the first 3 has some nice, smooth controls and it was fun to just explore the home worlds on their own =p
