He did the same thing when the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy trailer was released. He's mocking the people who are nitpicking every detail.

Re: saltyratchet5's hate video on people who like the remaster:

To be fair it sounds more like he's hating on Activision, not fans.

But yeah, hopefully it's satire because it's wayyy too early to be complaining about anything at this point. And what we've seen so far seems pretty loyal to the original games....

Haha I love that vid.

Re: saltyratchet5's hate video on people who like the remaster:

@Stormy Hmm, with a video title like "SPYRO REIGNITED IS FOR (VULGER SLANG WORD THAT STARTS WITH A C)" It's clear he's refering to the fans, if the title was "SPYRO REIGNITED IS BEING MADE BY (VULGER SLANG WORD THAT STARTS WITH A C)" or something, then I agree with you. I see your point, but the wording of the title is key.

True, I kinda went more by the content than the title. Still, silly to complain anyway.

To be honest I couldn't exactly get the point he was trying to make. Half the time it sounded like he's just calling out other people who are against it and half the time he says he himself is against it.

Re: saltyratchet5's hate video on people who like the remaster:

He recently did a "Why exactly I object to the Spyro Reignited Trilogy" video 4 days ago.

He's sour because Activision didn't make a completely new Spyro game he wanted, and doesn't care if people would become unfamiliar with the Spyro title and the remasters weren't made. He's all about "I want a new Spyro game not a remaster!" and said himself that "Activision will get my support when they make a new game. Simple."

Re: saltyratchet5's hate video on people who like the remaster:

To each their own.  I never understood why people would subject themselves to this much negativity.  I know you can't always ignore things you don't like and have to voice your opinion, but it sometimes seems like there are people who gravitate towards making a fuss and nitpicking at details.  I did recently listen to CrystalFissure and ratchet5's conversation that was posted on YouTube.  Granted, it was before the Reignited Trilogy, he still had the opinion that a remaster was less than favorable for him, but his reasons are mostly blaming Activision for how they missed their chance at continuing Spyro's legacy in gaming.  While no one is on Activision's side, I think ratchet lacks the optimism that got all of us to love Spyro in the first place.

Here's that video I'm talking about:

I agree that none of us own Activision any thank yous.  But I can't be negative about something like the Reignited Trilogy in principle, simply because I had higher hopes for newer games.  I think newer games will come if the Reignited Trilogy succeeds.  It may not be what we expect, but it will be something that Activision will try to make profitable.  Don't be surprised if Spyro gets a new game, but it's his Skylanders form.  And also don't be surprised if they do something with Spyro that is not a platformer.  Adventure platforms are risky business in 2018.  And try to keep in mind that Activision's plan for Spyro ought to be to represent him in a way that's attractive to new fans.  Getting Spyro new fans is the only way he survives.  Us geezer Spyro fans have a lot of heart, but Activision wants the next generation's money.  If all they do is make older fans happy and no one else, Spyro will fail in the long run.  If you expect Activision to cater to your nostalgia, you're going to be disappointed.  The Reignited Trilogy is a great bone they're throwing us though.  At the end of the day, I just prefer not to be a miserable old school fan and enjoy Spyro in every form possible.
