That would be the year when all of the OLD Spyro fans are gone. So long as they're around, people WILL know that Insomniac MADE Spyro.

Being that you're more for the NEW canon than the OLD one, I'm not surprised that you think it's better. I, personally, don't think so.


And DarkFaun's right. In every way. Including how SSL has Hunter, Bianca, and Phoneybags having fifty thousand relatives.

We're about this close to having Spyro have twelve playable cousins of every shade of the rainbow. And that, only that, will be the day that the whole kit and kaboodle dies for me. Never before, as I like Spyro.

At least before VU.

Grrr. Insomniac were BRIBED by VU.

VU is NOT working hard with Spyro, they just dump soem random characters in, while Insomniac actually BOTHERS to make up the origins for the characters. (Even if they're spoofs)

I noticed the pro-VUers are claiming that they haven't been flamed yet.
Don't worry, I won't flame you.

*pulls lever and the whole pro-VU party falls into a river of lava*

I'll do that, instead.
Hey! Everyone knows no video game is comlete without lava!

Calm down, calm down, I'm just kidding!

---------------------------------------

Seriously, though, Spyro, as a franchise, is dead and gone, to me. Spyro, as a character, endures... for now...

Yet all of Spyro canon is being "canonraped" by VU right now. I seriously don't care what anyone says, VU sucks proverbial *!(#%&&*#(@(!%^**!!

As I am such a strongly opinionated and un-swayable old bastard, there is little point in me being here, as any fair agument from the pro-VUists would 'fall on deaf ears'.

But first, a little more rant...

VU has successfully undone all respect I ever had for them, which had originally come from some good releases of theirs, such as Half-Life.

Then they (un)did Spyro, and had to kiss my ample VU-repecting arse good-bye.

So little Insomniac canon now remains - it's sickening. It's like some poor-quality fanfiction, except it's bloodywell canon.

CANON...

THIS CR*P...

By the heathen gods, what has Spyro come to?


Sorry, that's enough of my extremely well-heated air, for now, anyway.

But I far prefer Insomniac. The VU Spyros bring me to tears, literally - and I'm dead serious about that.

Well if theirs no way ta change your mind I wont waste eather of our times trying to do so

Your pro Insomniac and as of now I'm offically declaring myself pro VU and I see nothing wrong with the VU Cannons ((in fact I see none of the problems your describing in fact their adding more charas because...well they have to the Spyro world needs population))

but like I said before I lost respect to InQuiteriac although I am gaining it because with R&C their not quiting after game 3 like they did with Spyro ((Deadlocked is R&C game 4))

I don't think SD hates Insomniac or you ...he did said he's gaining respect for Insomniac again in the post above.

I like Insomniac and all, but I also like VU and just like you're offended when people say they don't like Insomniac, I get quite offended when people post negative stuff about VU too, especially when it's hate comments about Ember, the EmberXSpyro pairing (she's still one of my favorite charries) or about the Spyro series being dead and gone (I find it really depressing when people say that. Honestly, I'd rather live in denial than accept that Spyro's gone...) but I don't think we should argue about it like this smiley We're all entitled to our opinions and fighting each other because them is a bit petty. That would be like DDO hating us just because we like Spyro.

I don't want to offend anyone with this post...if I did, sorry in advance...

Please, Ruby. As strongly opinionated and evidence-lacking as I am, I still don't make such blunt, dangerously flame-ish, caps-lock statements.

Do please try to calm down and see the other point of view.

And Solid, I wouldn't say that Insomniac "gave up" on Spyro, they just wanted to try something new for the PS2.
And I do NOT appreciate your use of "InQuiterac" at all.

Apart from that, I must commend you on the manner in which you handle my great "opinionatedness", it's really mature of you (I know some people who would 'go off their tree' if I made such a post as my previous one!)

So, I agree to disagree.

Yeah We can Agree to dissagree about this topic

And Twilight your calmness is verya pprechiated so thank you

and as for the 'InQuiteriac' comment I actually ment it as a joke grin but if it does offend ya I'll remove it form my sig and never bring it up again

Edit: Okay someone removed it for me that makes it all the easier

VU needs to be a registered sex offender... because they pretty much canon raped everything in Spyro. And god, I hate Spyro's new voice and look. They could've done better with a lot of things. They may be shoving resources into it, but there isn't the love that Insomniac had for it when they were in control. Insomniac built itself up on Spyro.

The humor is "ehh" at most. The same stuff I've been hearing since before I was born, hearing stuff from inside my mother's womb. Insomniac managed to scrounge up some darn funny stuff every game. I still giggle, and I've been playing spyro for -years-.

The graphics... I think another thing that made the first three good was that the graphics weren't top-notch and highly refined. You can get away with so much more physical humor with less than realistic graphics. Like the frogs in Sunny Villa that pumped their heads with air? I feel kind of stupid for loving that so much XD but you would have a hard time making it as funny with the graphics they have now. Not to mention Spyro doesn't look as cute as he did. Did his eyes just shrink? Even the bigger dragons look more wide-eyed and youthful than he does now (*coughAHTcough*).

And they booted characters, too. The most famous of the booted being the lovely Elora. And the character's personalities (well, at least a good majority of them* pulled a flying 180 on us. Moneybags apparently isn't the snobby money-grubber he was, Hunter is not as stupid (I liked him stupid better...), and a good lot of other characters are so different, it might just as well be an entirely different game. I also like the Stewart Copeland music better. I think they might've ditched -that- too, which is one of the things that really stuck to Spyro in my mind.

Where did all the portals go? I know the free-roaming in gargantuan worlds is fun, but Spyro was designed differently from the beginning. The portals were, oddly, more adventurous. One step could bring into a totally different magical realm with totally different residents and themes. Like a bunch of little worlds in one.And now it's like there isn't a point for gems. Infinite? That's no fun. There's little purpose to collecting them past buying what you need. I really loved Spyro's choices for getting stuff from Moneybags "Yes! Just please shut up!" from Spooky Swamp, land of haiku, is one of my favorites ^-^

VU is trying, but it changes so much it'd be just so much better off making a -new- franchise. Everything changes with developers (*cougheverygamecough*).

ok your right in some ways but being a big insomniac supporter you are talkin hogwash...
yes vu games made all the other spyro games stink but you cant blame insomniac...what if they continued making spyro with dumb ideas...personally i think spyro is better off with vu there for insomniac can make better games.
yes vu games of spyro suck but every company has to let stuff go...so they can get more money to make better games.

bye smiley
