After the controversy about the required downloads, we got some more bad (or possibly good) news about the Spyro Reignited Trilogy.


Instead of releasing on September 21 as planned, it has been delayed until November 13.


The official word from Toys for Bob just says it “needs more love and care.”


Delays to polish up a game that isn’t quite ready yet happen often enough, but this raises questions ab...

Stephen King
“The 3 types of terror: The Gross-out: the sight of a severed head tumbling down a flight of stairs, it's when the lights go out and something green and slimy splatters against your arm. The Horror: the unnatural, spiders the size of bears, the dead waking up and walking around, it's when the lights go out and something with claws grabs you by the arm. And the last and worse one: Terror, when you come home and notice everything you own had been taken away and replaced by an exact substitute. It's when the lights go out and you feel something behind you, you hear it, you feel its breath against your ear, but when you turn around, there's nothing there...”
