In honor of today’s release of Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy, here’s the Crash games that the country got on home consoles. They basically got all of ‘em, barring Crash of the Titans and Mind Over Mutant; Tag Team Racing was both the last home console Crash and the last Western-made Crash they got (the last Crash they got overall was the Dimps-developed Crash Boom Bang! for the DS, first released there as Crash Bandicoot Festival)
A thing to note about the Wrath of Cortex covers is that the Xbox/GameCube versions feature different artwork from the PS2 original, as you can see; the only difference between both those versions’ coverarts is that the Xbox one features the old Konami logo instead, being released earlier. And yes, Japanese GameCube owners got WoC as late as December of 2003; they ended up getting Nitro Kart first, rather than the other way around as it was in the West.
Another thing to note is that Japan will end up getting N.Sane Trilogy, albeit in early August, and published by Sony themselves rather than by Activision. If it’ll feature the same changes and additions the original PS1 versions got back in Japan, we don’t know (remastered Crash Bandicoot music vid plz Sony), although the cover will have a slightly redesigned Crash on it, so that’s neat.

Part 2 will cover the handheld installments (read: the GBA games)

Oh uh- yeye u look good- I mean nice?? Great! Yes u look great!” - walks away - scenario 3: “Jagi that dress looks really nice ;) it fits u ;)” - “Ahh do u really think so?? Because I think it’d look better on the floor” - “w-what uh,, i uh,, y es no i wHAT” - random singing at any given time - random dancing - legit he’ll start singing something and you kinda start singing along and then it’s just the two of you sitting lazily on the couch, off-key and everything - shopping kart races in the grocery store parking lot - Suddenly a wild Jinyoung appears - you’ll get videos of him torturing ur boy - “what are you gonna do about it Y/N??? hm?? nOTHING” - little does he know that you’ve already put vaseline on his door knobs - tbh you’ll get videos from all the boys of him being a meme - speaking of the boys, you’re at war w/ them -they legit have lil meetings to try to prank/scare you but you’re always a step ahead - back hugs - hand holding - tall baby - rests his chin on your head/shoulder - pecks on the cheek in public - soft kisses when you’re alone - probably holds your hand when you kiss - flowers just because ur so cute - piggyback rides - teasing each other nonstop - playing Mario Kart together - wrestling and messing around all the time - making him get things from high shelves for you - the face he makes when he’s like embarrassed where he closes his eyes and just kinda silently laughs and cUTE - you probably have to say I love you first - the first time you tell him you love him he’s really shocked and is like “???? what???” - “are you sure????” - he’s in such disbelief but he’s so happy - vv blushy - his fluffy hair - playing with said fLUFFY HAIR - He’s ur boy u gotta love and protect him - sitting in on his dacne practices - but when you do he’s lowkey nervous and just wants to impress you - but you’re supportive no matter what and it makes his large body all warm and fuzzy inside
How would 2D react to having an S/O who's very protective of him when Murdoc is around them?
A/N: truly a blessing
He’d probably really appreciate it, but on the low, so Murdoc wouldn’t get any suspicions.
It began when the three of you were playing video games on the couch, well the two of you until Murdoc decided he wanted to reclaim his title as Mario Kart champion.
You give him a suspicious side eye as he sits on the couch next to 2D and the three of you begin racing on Rainbow Road. 2D is in the lead with you and Murdoc battling for second place. You eventually let him pass you, and he goes after first place.
It’s an intense battle for the gold, but, as expected, 2D wins and Murdoc throws his controller in defeat, causing the two of you to jump. “You little-” Murdoc stops his sentence when you pull 2D against you, holding his head against your chest while giving Murdoc a look so frightening, he ends up leaving the two of you alone.
This goes on for the next few weeks, 2D smiling smugly at Murdoc every time you shield him from whatever harm he planned on inflicting. Murdoc eventually snaps at you both one evening when 2D voices his opinions during your weekly movie night. “You can’t keep coddling him! Look at the bastard, he’s taunting me!”
“Hmm, you’re absolutely right Murdoc,” you say lifting 2D’s head off of your chest, earning confused looks from everyone. “I’ll just do this instead,” you say before crashing your lips against 2D’s who doesn’t take long to respond and the two of you are eating each other’s faces shamelessly in front of his bandmates.
Russel and Noodle return to the movie indifferent from the whole situation and Murdoc huffs and mumbles angrily, crossing his arms over his chest and he never bothered 2D again.
LMAO IF ONLY
a concept: movie nights with all the band members and intense mario kart races.
(I had to leave for a bit bc of dinner but this is what I got)
he got a noise complaint halfway through from the guy next door and he’s been quiet the whole time except when he screamed once about red shells
nogla’s internet went out during the beginning but then he streamed for nearly 5-6 hours. what a champ.
tyler was there earlier but he left and brian joined and then brock
delirious jumped in halfway through and yelled “YOU GUYS SUCK” and then left immediately
someone asked nogla if anyone has seen delirious’ face and he replied “I’m pretty sure only cartoonz has”
apparently evan only plays pc and sometimes ps4…bruh
nogla turned the mario kart races to only shells and it was CHAOS
brock won a race against everyone and screamed because he was very excited
nogla had to go bathroom and brian went to get a beer so it was just brock on the stream and then jaclyn took over really quick and knocked brian off the course and he screamed “SCREW YOU BITCH” and apparently that’s the first time they’ve ever met and brock replied “wow I can’t wait for you to meet my daughter”
nogla got a lot of donations and some of them donated just to shit talk brian and compliment brock and honestly…same
they recorded a mario kart video earlier today and apparently anthony lost his MIND
someone in the chat just asked ‘where did delirious come from?’ AND NOGLA RESPONDED ‘oh he’s from Carolina’ nogla you sweetheart that’s not what they meant
nogla treats his subs well and that was a fantastic stream
