#TBT 001: Crash Bandicoot LVL1 N Sanity Beach (Throwback Thursday Retro Gaming with phoenixgenesis)
It’s time for Episode 1 of Throwback Thursday Retro Gaming with phoenixgenesis [#TBT 001]. Today, we’ve got a beloved PlayStation classic by Naughty Dog: Crash Bandicoot. I remember spending hours playing this platformer and all the other games in its franchise. Please don’t laugh as I am totally rusty with playing this game, especially being limited to the D-Pad for left, right, up, and down movement. And my eyes are used to glorious 1080p state-of-the-art TV screens, not old-school graphics. Still, the gameplay is fun and challenging, the orange PSX mascot rocks, and I still bop to the music. Stay tuned for part 2 and 3 of Crash Bandicoot shortly.
With video game costs for both games and next gen consoles on the rise, it’s time to dust out your old classics and have some fun. Or, if you’re on a budget, go out and buy some of the old used games from the original Playstation or download them from the PSN store to play on your PS3. For under $10, go retro and get your game on with Retro Gaming by your favorite professional video game celebrity, phoenixgenesis (aka, Des Manttari). By the way, I remember being super excited at the early E3 Expos for the new Crash Bandicoot games. Now, I’m all geared up for Naughty Dog’s Uncharted 4 and their remaster of The Last Of Us for PS4. My how time flies, but we can still time travel digitally to the past.
Here’s my editorial about my first year at E3 in 1999. Here’s my Retro Attic Gamer’s Profile from 2001. Video gameplay and commentary by me, phoenixgenesis, on August 13, 2014 on PS3 with Hauppauge HD PVR Rocket. (c) 2014: Phoenix Genesis/MBS LP. All rights reserved.
