Crash Bandicoot: N⋅Sane Trilogy Unveiled at PlayStation Experience!

A short while ago, I wrote an article following my excitement that Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back & Crash Bandicoot: Warped were being remastered after years of rumours and speculation, and tonight at the PlayStation Experience, Activision unveiled the first ever look of Crash Bandicoot: N-Sane Trilogy and I have just seen the comeback trailer of the new Crash game and believe me, I wasn’t prepared. It’s so good! To reminisce the nostalgic fever of the PS1 Classic Crash Bandicoot, Activision showed the original levels from the Crash Bandicoot PS1 game, and then they put the original levels together with the remastered levels and it’s so good!

I know I keep saying it’s so good, but trust me, it is that good that your jaws will drop the moment you see the comeback trailer. I have provided the comeback trailer below so all of you can see Crash Bandicoot in his full glory, officially remastered for the PlayStation 4 in 60FPS (Frames Per Second)

Sony & Activision couldn’t have picked a better time to show Crash Bandicoot off, and just in time for Christmas, they have given all of us hope and have put smiles on all of our faces, because the marsupial Crash Bandicoot is back and marks his 20th Anniversary of being on PlayStation.

What did you think of the comeback trailer for Crash Bandicoot: N⋅Sane Trilogy? Do you have all three of the original PlayStation 1 Crash Bandicoot games? Are you just as excited as I am about Crash Bandicoot’s comeback? Please let me know if you feel nostalgic by submitting feedback below. All feedback is much appreciated.

Maturity & Communication in Modern Society: How Has Our Generation Affected the Way We Mature & Communicate Over the Years?

In modern society, maturity is something that shouldn’t really go amiss, especially in our generation and in this day and age, but when it comes to maturity in modern society, among many other areas of life, our generation unfortunately lacks almost all of maturity.

I personally feel that if our generation took a look at the previous generation and compared them to our own generation, our generation would be shocked, because in the 1960s, there were no digital mobile phones, except for the old-style retro wired telephones, which came with just a number dial and the phone, including the occasional ringing noise everytime someone went to pick up the phone. Nowadays, that doesn’t happen. Why? Because, as technology has become so advanced in the past 50 to 100 years, all is takes for you to do nowadays is to open an app, type in the phone number and ring that number, and even back then, apps weren’t even a thing.

Our generation, I’m sorry to say, has become so wrapped up in technology that at least half or most of the time, I’ve seen some people who have had their eyes pasted to their phone screens, computer screens, and even handheld consoles and gaming consoles, whilst other people have been speaking. I know I may sound like a fine one to talk because I use much of what I’ve mentioned above, but I only use a phone for emergency purposes, and most of the time, I can’t use any consoles because I always put my studies first before anything else.

Maturity is key in everyone’s life, but so is communication, and communication is always key as well, as communication is also something that goes amiss in the current generation. I’m sorry to say this, but maturity and communication are the two most important key factors that our generation lacks, and I forgive you if you feel annoyed about the way modern society has turned out.

The reasons why maturity and communication have become tarnished over the years is not just because of technology, but also because of gun and knife crime, as we all have to live in fear for our own safety almost each and every day. It’s pretty sad, don’t you think?

Over the course of last year, there were a large number of gun and knife crimes, which could have been prevented if the police numbers here weren’t cut. If there was more of police on the streets, our generation would have been just that extra bit maturer and would have possibly communicated a lot better.

One of my followers on here made a very interesting observation shortly after I published the article: “My own views on Violence and why it is never the answer.” and said to me that it is up to us young ones to do all of the good work, and to be honest, that follower that told me was right, and there’s no denying that maturity and communication are two of the most important things that are often not thought about and always put upon.

In my eyes, maturity and communication, as well as respect are the three most important key factors in life that we should not take for granted, and I believe at the end of the day in maturity, communication and respect, because, to me, they are the three most important factors in life that we should always appreciate having.

If there was one day in this world and in our generation where no-one was to use anything at all, and if everyone was to respect one another, communicate with one another, and even mature with one another, the world would be a better place. I think of the three main keys that connect to these as well; perception, perspective and persistency.

I just feel that with three of the most important things in life, this whole world could get on, but at the moment, the whole world is a bad place to be, and it is up to all of us, especially the young ones, like myself, to do the good work.

To conclude, I personally believe that we should all communicate with each other properly, and that we grow up with a mature mindset and attitude that allows us to respect each other for everything that life is worth.

If you feel that maturity, communication and respect should be some of the things we should see in this world, please feel free to feedback your opinions and thoughts on what you think of maturity and communication in modern society.
