Crash Bandicoot: N⋅Sane Trilogy / Out 30th June!

It’s official! Just a few months after we all witnessed the marsupial make his comeback, Crash Bandicoot is ready to come back to PlayStation on the 30th June! Who would have thought it, eh?

This news comes after the comeback trailer unveiled Crash Bandicoot back to his true and original form, with the comeback trailer itself even showing comparisons of the original PS1 Classic levels including the newly upgraded level designs of the exact same levels.

I also came across official screenshots of Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back after reading an article that Crashy News published, and honestly, Activision have made sure to keep the N⋅Sane Trilogy true to the original PS1 Classic Crash Bandicoot and they have most certainly done the Naughty Dog Original series justice with this refreshed collection of the N⋅Sane Trilogy.

I won’t deny this, I will be pre-ordering the Crash Bandicoot N⋅Sane Trilogy because it’s so good! I will not be surprised if this trilogy sells just as well as the original PS1 Classics, because Crash Bandicoot was and still is a bestseller even to the present day, and the N⋅Sane Trilogy itself will do just the same, because Activision have made sure to keep this game original by making sure it captures the true heart of the original PS1 version of Crash Bandicoot that we all came to know and love.

This release date couldn’t have come at a much better time, as this trilogy releases exactly two weeks after I mark my 19th birthday.

Are you just as excited as I am that Crash Bandicoot is finally back? If you are excited to see Crash Bandicoot come to the PlayStation 4 on the 30th June, then please let me know, I would love to hear what you think about the marsupial bandicoot making his comeback to PlayStation.

The EU Referendum. The Historical & Most Controversial Voting Event in History.

It’s been the most talked about event of the year. The EU Referendum. But just how important is the EU Referendum? Well I’ll tell you.

The EU Referendum, as we all know it, would be the biggest referendum for the European  Union, in which all citizens of Europe, for instance, the UK, Gibraltar, Scotland, Northern Ireland and many other parts of the United Kingdom would cast their vote on whether to Leave the European Union, or to Remain in the European Union. I stayed up until 7:35 AM this morning after I went to bed as I was eager to find out the final result from the EU Referendum and I was one of those people today who would not sleep until I found out the final result from the EU Referendum.

I am absolutely pleased that the Leave side of the EU Referendum campaign won the vote to leave the EU and I have absolutely no problem whatsoever with anyone who chose to vote Leave or Remain and I absolutely have no problem with anyone who chose to not vote in the EU Referendum.

I was somewhat surprised of the news that the Prime Minister, David Cameron, had announced his resignation from his position as Prime Minister for the United Kingdom but after I woke up to the news of his resignation and that he would be leaving his position as Prime Minister in October, I went from being tired and not alert to being wide awake and fully alert.

You can say I was surprised but wasn’t shocked. However, I am pleased that the Leave side of the campaign won the vote to Leave the European Union.

It was obvious from day one that the EU Referendum wouldn’t just be the historical voting event in history, but that it would also be the most controversial Referendum in history.

There were always going to be those certain stages where xenophobic, racist, and even homophobic comments would crop up and cause a series of bumps in the road, as well as other forms of social abuse online.

Of course there was and still is a huge amount of backlash from both sides of the campaign, as there have been a large number of comments that are deemed racist based around immigration, but even so, I’ve been keeping a close eye on Facebook to find out how everyone else reacted to the United Kingdom leaving the EU.

I will be honest, I voted to Leave the EU for a number of reasons and it’s not in any way about immigration at all just before there is any chance of someone jumping the gun at why I chose to leave.

I chose to Leave the EU because:

  1. Of the lack of money being funded for our National Health Service, our voices not being heard, including a government that is corrupt because they take advantage of our human rights and tell us what we can and cannot do.
  2. Our human rights are being taken away from us if we chose to remain, for instance, by remaining, we won’t get much of a say over what we can and cannot do in the UK if we chose to Remain.
  3. The lack of policing on our streets, our safety not being taken into account and the fact that our government and the EU are failing to crack down on the crime rates. For instance, the crime rates are at an all-time high due to gun and knife crimes being committed, not to mention the leniency of sentencing where a prisoner’s amount of years behind bars are concerned. Every day there are a number of reports being published of multiple stabbings taking place, including gun crimes, and also crimes where technological devices such as smartphones, tablets, televisions, even the latest smartwatches being stolen.

Obviously, this article will receive mixed reactions and quite possibly a lot of criticism and I’m not in any shape or form going to deny that, but I have absolutely no intention of causing offence based on my reasons for choosing to leave the European Union, so I do sincerely apologise if you are offended.

Every single day, I always keep myself up to date on the news, even when I’m not publishing any articles, as I always make sure to never miss a single thing. I watch the news very closely 24/7 so that I can get a clear understanding of the news, as well as to what goes on in the world every single day.

I will make it perfectly clear I have absolutely no problem with anyone who chose to vote to Leave or Remain and I also have absolutely no problem with anyone who chose to not vote in the EU Referendum.

This is my first ever time voting, but I respect everyone’s decisions entirely if you chose to vote to Leave or Remain, and I also respect everyone’s decisions for if you chose to not vote in the EU Referendum.

Did you vote to Leave or Remain in the EU Referendum? If so, please feel free to submit feedback. Your feedback is much appreciated.
