Why did N. Gin try to stop Crash in World 4?

Wasn't he allied with Cortex, at that point?
>>
>>275573615
He got carried away.

Even if N. Gin did succeed, murder Crash, and take those twenty crystals, they'd still need five more.
>>
>>275573928
Yeah, exactly. Maybe it was an oversight by the developers? I can't remember if N. Gin says anything before the fight.
>>
Cortex wanted Crash to give the crystals to N. Gin and Crash refused for some reason. It always bugged me too to be honest. Also why Tiny fights for Cortex in 3 while he was created by Brio and technically fights against him Not to mention all the fucking time paradoxes 3 would cause Jesus Christ.
>>
Why did Cortex always force his efforts on the crystals when gems were obviously more powerful?
>>
Why does Ripper Roo suddenly betray Cortex and work for Brio in 2?
>>
>>275574050
He says give me those crystals

wot
>>
>>275573615
Good question anon, I allways saw it as Cortex said hand the crystals over to Ngin but Crash is to retarded to know how, meanwhile Ngin got paranoid from the coco interference and never trusted Crash to begin with.
Note the begining cutscene in the game it's cortex whom suggest to use an enemy not Ngin, perhaps he was against it.

Crash Retold
>>
>>275574109
I think Crystals are more powerful, or had a different use.

N. Brio just figured out a different use for the gems, I guess.

>why Tiny fights for Cortex in 3 while he was created by Brio
>created by Brio

Really? Wow, never knew this. It makes the game a lot more interesting.

Also, Tiny is pretty dumb, so I can see him being swayed by Cortex and Uka Uka in Crash 3.

N. Brio's status is pretty mysterious. He fought alongside Cortex in 1, then betrays him in 2. I don't think he is good, but just bitter at Cortex.
>>
>>275574071
Tiny is just dumb I suppose, so he could be easily manipulated.

>>275574109
Because gems were much harder to gather, and most of times Cortex cared for quick results.

>>275574229
He was just left in that island in the original, likely he was also just dropped there by Brio as well, Ripper Roo is just insane, he has no affiliation.
>>
Crash lore thread?

Why was Komodo Joe in CTR, but not Komodo Moe?
>>
>>275574263
>>275574071
You know what, I think Crash started to catch on that Cortex was just using him, that's why he didn't hand the crystals to N. Gin.

Doesn't Coco give him some hints? Also, N. Brio straight out tells him Cortex is evil.

He was kind of a fatass.
Captcha: tedeep
>>
>>275574229
We don't even know if it was Brio who created Ripper Roo.

Remember that in Crash 1 Cortex and Brio were working together. So internal allegiances may have developed. Also, Cortex failing in Crash 1 would've made his subjects/allies bitter. Maybe that's why they then support Brio.
>>
>>275574476
I'd agree to that things start clocking on once co co starts interfering Crash was just going through the motions until she tells him to be careful.

Mfw I was young enough to think Cortex might turn good and got spooked when he goes crazy between 4-5 warp room
>>
>>275574476
>Doesn't Coco give him some hints?
She breaks in every now and then but Cortex kept wiping out her connection to the projector.

>N. Brio straight out tells him Cortex is evil.
At the end of Warp Room 4, just before N. Gin's fight, Cortex tells Crash that Brio is the true antagonist and to not believe his lies. (This is true in some cases, as Brio did say he'd do anything to wipe Crash out if he kept collecting crystals. ie: the first three bosses)

Crash isn't the smartest guy, so he was likely confused at that point as to which doctor was telling the truth. It was all hearsay by that point.
>>
Crash bandicoot has the deepest lore.
>>
As light-hearted the games are, I always thought the story behind them was pretty damn serious to a certain point. And there were things from the games I would have liked to know. Like how Dr. Cortex met Dr. Brio, N.Gin (before or after he suffered the missile blow on his head) and the rest of them, the exact process of how some characters came to be (Coco Bandicoot, Dingodile and such). Crash and Coco's parents. Those kind of things.

Maybe it's for the best to never know.
>>
Fuck, I've figured this shit out. Prepare to be mindblown.

>Why does Ripper Roo side with Brio?
For the same reason that Brio now wants revenge against Cortex. Cortex failed them, and left them stranded on the island.

>Why does Tiny Tiger support Cortex in 3
Ultimately, Brio, Ripper Roo, Tiny et al want the same thing: world domination.

Uka Uka formed a new evil alliance, and Tiny likely hopped on board due to the new mastermind. He's also quite dim, and easily manipulated.

>Why does N. Gin try to kill Crash
Cortex is the only one that appears to form an alliance with Crash,. Crash has no idea who N. Gin is or who he works for. To his knowledge, he just wants the crystals to himself. To cortex, however, he's a minion attempting to secure the crystals for cortex.

Crash has no idea who he is allied with, and thus defeats him.

Cortex continues to pander to Crash as if he had no idea one of his servants tried to stop him.

Did I fill all the plotholes, bros?
>>
>>275574260
The crystals in 2 and 3 are the same. Think of it this way.
>Crash gets a crystal in 2
>Later Crash 3 happens
>Goes back and gets the same crystal in the same position 1000 years in the past
>It will no longer be in that position when he gets it in the present in Crash 2

It is in some ways now that I think about it. It's kind of like a metaphoric example of Brio's superiority over Cortex.

Assuming that Cortex is behind Koala Kong and Brio is behind Tiny, and seeing how much of an improvement Tiny is over Kong.

I thought there were multiple crystals, hell there's hundreds of gems since there are some in Crash 1 and 2

>>275575323
Fake Crash was a botched experiment.

Crash was meant to be a super-fighter to bring Cortex world dom, wasn't he?

Dingodile was created by Cortex in crash 3.
>>
>>275575323
No idea about fake crash, but it's said Dingodile was created by Brio in crash bash, I suppose, since he doesn't even appear in 2, nor does Brio, he was independant until Cortex persuaded him somehow.

"What Dr. Cortex said, give the twenty crystals you've collected to ME!"

At this point, Crash knows that N. Gin is allied with Cortex, and not Brio. And takes him out anyways.
>>
>>275575028
Is that what he was doing?

Shit, I didn't even realize this. he was going into the past where the original crystals were located.

SHIT WHAT THE FUCK

That is just downright depressing.
>>
>>275575691
So, Crash becomes aware of N. Gin's motives as he is being attacked. In self-defence, Crash kills N. Gin.

That's probably when he started to catch onto the fact that Coco and Brio were right.

Cortex probably doesn't fully trust Crash, and order N. Gin to forcibly take the 20 crystals from him, meaning that Cortex only needs to recover the remaining 5.

FUUUUUUUCCCCCCK

Understanding the storyline makes me now want to play the games again.

Fucking hell. Crash 2 was deep
>>
>>275575456
>>275575693
In the intro of 3, Uka Uka says that Cortex lost the Crystals and Gems and that there is no other power source left on the planet. The crystals in WoC are completely different though and I'd assume they are for the other games.
>>
Holy shit fuck you guys I'm literally busting my Crash Bandicoot manuals out just to double-check this shit you guys are saying.
>>
>>275575236
Mind over mutant does on N.Brio's case, he is basically buthurt cortex left their mutagen research (using the evolve ray and other methods) to pursue other areas of evil science
>>
>>275575991
>completely different

No, I don't think so. The time portals to the past are meant to be a direct source to where the crystals were originally located. So although cortex lost the power sources in 2, they can go directly to their first location in 3, so that whatever happened in 2 was null and void.
>>
I had no idea that crash lore ran this deep. I thought it was just that Crash managed to escape in the first game and Cortex has been trying to catch up ever since.
>>
>>275575015
IIRC CTR or one of the multiplayer games had some character info, N.Gin was a mechanic scientist experimenting with a new kind of rocket and rocket fuel, shit went bad and a rocket hit him in the head in a way that caused some brain damage, however its too deep in and its impossible to remove it now
>>
>>275576240
But if Crash 2 doesn't happen then his space station won't fall from space, Uka Uka will never be free and Crash 3 can't happen.
In the intro of WoC the crystals are stated to be "Elelmental crystals" so it's implied they're meant to be different.
>>

>>275575236

I don't know, it always felt weird taking into account the post Naughty Dog era games' story and lore and combine it with the originals. I just feel more comfortable knowing what ND actually thought of for the serie's story and lore since they were the ones who began the whole thing.
>>
>>275576814
You need to get the 100% endings in all of them, they are the canon ending
besides 3 to WoC, the normal ending is the canon one, as the 100% makes cortex and Uka Uka into babies
WoC 100% ties in Twinsanity's intro IIRC
>>
>>275575093
But Koala Kong was stronger than Tiny, he could throw boulders , Tiny could only jump. Koala Kong's problem was he was too cocky.
Tiny was probably a defect like Crash, because of his short legs. That's why he's called Tiny.

1's normal ending is canon to 2 as well. In the good ending of 1 you don't even fight Cortex.

>>275577658
His voice acting was better in 2.

It was deeper.
>>
I think N Gin is just an impulsive loose canon who wasn't filled in on the whole plan.

He does have a missile lodged in his skull y'know.
>>
In Crash 2 Cortex is trying to trick Crash into collecting the Crystals in order to "save" the planet, which always seems like bullshit to Crash, especially because CoCo is constantly trying to tell him (basically) it's a trap. But what he actually wants to do is collect all the crystals so that when the planets align he can capture the energy of the solar flux.

Meanwhile N Brio (Cortex's former partner) is asking Crash to collect the Gems instead because with those he can create a weapon that can fire at Cortexs already partly built new Cortex Vortex that he made with the few crystals he found in the cave where he crashlanded. n. Brio specifically says "As long as you continue to collect Crystals for Cortex, I will do everything in my power to stop you!" Hence why you face him, because you can't progress out of the Warp Room you are trapped in without collecting the Crystals for Cortex because it's a video game. N Gin is just a henchman of Cortex.

That's basically the meat of the story, the rest is the conclusion.
>>
>>275577649
If you get all the gems by the time you reach The Great Hall you can meet Tawna and complete the game without fighting Cortex
>>
>>275577649
If you collect all the gems, you can play through one of the final levels using the gems as platforms that lead straight to Tawna. No final boss with Cortex.
>>275577763
I still really enjoy Cortex's VA in Twinsanity. It's not exactly the same, but it's similar enough and I think it suits the character better.
>>
>>275575691
Doesn't this video explain why N. Gin fought crash?

Cortex orders N. Gin to get the crystals from Crash, but Crash defeats him. Most likely because the warnings from Coco and Brio have convinced him that Cortex is lying.

Cortex, also, doesn't fully trust Crash, hence why he asked for the crystals early.
>>
>>275577649
Pretty sure you just fly away on a Stork with Tawna after jumping across every Gem.
>>
>>275577142
Cortex was a completely different character in Twinsanity, but you can argue that he went insane from being alone with Uka Uka in a block of ice for three years.
>>
>>275577924
>>275577937
I guess I always completed the game after I defeated Cortex.

Also, why does Tawna appear in the bonus levels?

>>275578280
That's the thing that always annoyed me. The only explanation is that the crystals were stuck in the warp room in 2, which was destroyed and scattered the crystals and they just didn't pick them up although they probably just needed an excuse to make future stages because come on distant future concepts are cool as fuck.

Crunch debuts in Wrath of Cortex and joins the Bandicoot family in that game, but does not appear in The Huge Adventure, which was released one year after Wrath of Cortex. However, he does appear in N-Tranced, which was released a year after The Huge Adventure, which proceeds to create a plot hole in which Crunch is not present in a game that takes place after his debut.

How is this possible?

That would be because they got the original character designer for the series to come back and work on that game.

He's currently doing more Crash art thanks to getting a nostalgia rush and supports others in wanting a new game in the franchise.
>>
>>275580116
It always confused me how NaughtyDog wanted Crash to be represented.

In all of the official art and stuff he's got a smug grin and kinda looks like a badass, but looking at his death animations and facial expressions in-game he just looks insanely goofy.
>>
>>275580116
I thought the reason the brainwashing machine failed was because Crash was retarded. Or maybe the machine's failure gave him brain damage?
You're saying Crash was never supposed to be dumb?
>>
>>275580339
I can respect MoM at least, it tried to change when since the devs realized CoT was total shit
But even if they got some jokes in, the even further redesigns and 2D cutscenes were too much for me, plus even with a more refined gameplay, it still evolved from CoT

Naughty Dog a shit. Nobody currently there even put a hand on Crash.

If anyone needs Crash back, it's TT. They knew what they were doing and were just about to strike gold before Radical Entertainment snatched it from them. And then Radical died too.

He was also meant to spout nothing but advertising slogans at one point, as a result of being brainwashed by television.

the machine failed because crash was insane
he wasn't an idiot, he was just insane and crazy, less than Ripper Roo, since Cortex didn't even try to use the Vortex with him, but crash was still too mentally unstable to brain wash it

Now imagine a universe where crash was a success and the insane evil leader of an furry army like cortex wanted him to be

Luckily they scrapped that shit idea.

>>275581151
No, it failed because the machine was not ready. See the Crash 1 intro. Brio explicitly says this, and Cortex is impatient.

Ripper Roo was his first experiment, but failed. Hence why he is crazy and manic.

The others are under Cortex's control but all have serious flaws. Hence why they can't lead Cortex's animal army.

Yup.

Cortex was gonna use it to brainwash the whole planet.

>>275580809

>>275581205
Pinstripe is definitely under Cortex's command, as he's CEO of Cortex's energy company or something. That said it does make sense for Ripper Roo and Koala Kong, while Papu Papu is just a random tribal leader.
>>
>>275580928

Correct. Most of the higher ups left to other management position and the rest went to studio's like Retro.
>>
>>275581205
pretty much the only success Cortex and Brio had with the vortex and evolve ray was Pinstripe, which why he became manager of the power plant
Koala kong was a failure, but a controllable one, so he became muscle
Riper Roo was the first try, which why he is full on crazy
Papu was just some tribe leader who lived on the Island
Tawana appears to be the only perfect experiment they did (until Coco is introduced in 2)

How are power levels in the Crash franchise determined?

>>
>>275581650
Wumpa Levels*
>>
>>275581650
Does anyone in the franchise even have any powers (aside from Aku Aku and Uka Uka), not counting stuff like "Super strength" for Tiny or Koala Kong for example?

The more segments you have on your health bar, the stronger you are.

ie: Pinstripe is stronger than Papu Papu.

>"It was going to be a completely new game, that was going to be developed back when we (TT Oxford) thought Universal were gonna allow us to continue the Crash franchise. I'm sure FakeNina mentioned that Crash Clash Racing/ Tag Team Racing was originally concepted and briefly designed by TT? Well when Radical got there hands on it, we began to design a Cortex-only game entitled something like - "Cortex Chaos", or "The All-New Cortex Show". Universal still own the rights to this, but I'm not sure if they will ever develop it properly...but we had several ideas which the game was going to be about... several of which I will describe briefly below from memory...

>The first proposal was based on the idea that Cortex had a series of little Clones (either humanoid or robotic) (...) He would be able to control them to do several little tasks ... such as pick up and throw bombs, collect items, or line-up to create a bridge (bit like Pikmin in some respects I suppose).

>The Second followed a Rockman/MegaMan style idea. Cortex had been kicked out of the Evil Scientist league, because of his fratenising with the cretinous Crash Bandicoot (during Twinsanity). The new team of evil doctors, now led by N.Tropy were trying to get their revenge on Cortex for some reason or other, and so each of the levels were based around them (N.Trance/N.Tropy/N.Brio/N.Gin/N.Oxide) etc...and of course introducing new villains (Doctor N.Tombed (a huge egyptian mummy like pharoah; Doctor N.Tertain (a strangle clown like doctor) and Doctor N.Tangle (a doctor that had plants growing from him - I think?)...there were more also, but I don't remember them.

The PAL version is more like an "update patch" of the NTSC version. Because the NTSC version had to be rushed, some details are unfinished. The most blatant is Penta Penguin, who is Polar/Pura tier in NTSC, but maxed out in all stats in PAL.

As far as I know it was actually Sony America that didn't like her. Some bitch SJW thought it didn't fit in and all, so they were forced to cut her or there would be consequences.

I think the entire story was on Andy's blog. (one of the main devs) where he talks about the entire development of the Crash series. Extremely interesting read if you're interested in Crash.

You've got Crunch now. And since Fake Crash is pretty much neutral, just have him side with Crash too. That's how Nitro Kart did it.

Introduced in Twinsanity. I really disliked her and her levels.

Meant to be introduced in Twinsanity by TT, though they originally planned on introducing her in Nitro Kart, which they were developing. Nitro Kart was then moved to Vicarious Visions.

Vicarious Visions jumped the gun and threw her in Fusion, which was released a few months before Twinsanity.

After Twinsanity, TT began development on Crash Tag Team Racing, but development once again shifted. This time to Radical Entertainment.

They're the same game. Admittedly the physics make way more sense for Crash but that doesn't change much when 80% of the games are minigames.
>>
>>275585390
I'll put it this way. You have to grind to get gems to get the minigames. Most of the minigames are just reskins of each other (ie, horizontal dodge the enemies and then the same thing but vertical), worse controls and to top it all off when you reach the last world it says you have to back and beat every minigame 3 times in order to access it.

Cortex/Brio were the weakest in tanks. They could shoot fast but were weak as fuck. Crash/Coco were all-around.

Tiny and Kong can shoot powerful shots but the reload time is too long. Dingodile and Rilla Roo can shoot two spurts at a time but their power is middling.

It's not only that, though. They had better ideas. Something as simple as the close-up floating head projections of the bosses, and their dialogue, did wonders in adding charm to each and every boss.

Also, I wouldn't mind buying a game of Crash's scale today. So long as the mechanics and production values are good enough. It would be pretty cheap to make today, too. Sell it at half the price of the average game.

Crash 2's Cortex fight was such a disappointment, especially considering the music for that fight is such a funky ass beat.

Apparently you can just fucking slide jump over them too, which will get you to him if you're fast enough. Speedrunners pull that shit.

Scientist who decided to use his genius for good instead of evil? Did they ever imply whether he made the Possum and the Chicken newscasters? I mean anthros aren't normal in Crash's world.

I'd say that fat Alien from that other PS2 racing game was much worse.

One thing that always grabbed me was the change in how double jumping worked in Crash 3 compared to Wrath of Cortex. In Crash 3 you can only double jump at the very top of your first jump. In WoC you can double jump at whatever point in the first jump as you please.

>>275589361
Yeah, you can slide over, but it's a little harder and only works on some of the icicles.
>>
When will Crash get an RPG game?
>>
>>275589501
I thought it was pretty neat, but for some reason the physics at times seemed weird. I remember that when you unclashed with a car sometimes you'd get a huge boost that propelled you forward, which was basically good exclusively for dicking over your former partner by pushing yourself to solo victory without them near the end of a race.

Shooting shit also felt pretty rewarding when clashed, though admittedly driving by yourself sort of felt like a worse version of a standard mario kart game, save for the fact that karts got progressively damaged until exploding.

I think with more polish it could've been a lot better, but it did what it did decently.

The biggest hope you had for modern crash was for him to be in Skylanders.
And there isn't much hope there due to Spyro getting cut from there.

Unless you think of it as Dragon Ball Z time travel. Crash is going back in time, but it's just the past of a similar universe?

I really liked N. Brio's design, but I felt like they could've done more with him. His signature laugh was absent, and he was kept silent. For what purpose? Maybe they couldn't find a good voice actor.

Also, a few of the villains were overdesigned like pic related

Does anyone remember seeing that mysterous crate further out from the N. Tropy / Brio boss fight? It's just floating above sea level

I still liked CNK although CTR was better.
It pretty much just stuck to its formula though and felt a little bit slower (still pretty fast, though). The Battle Mode was arguably better. The track design was pretty cool with the upside down stuff MK8 seems to have ripped off.

The plot of Crash 2 doesn't really make sense. Cortex tries to fake an alliance with Crash so that he'll do all of the dirty work. At no point does it really seem like Crash is actually working for Cortex, but since he doesn't ever talk, everyone assumes that he is.

Weirdly enough most of the boss fights didn't have anything to do with time travel. Tiny's fight was in the Colosseum, that was about it.

Not like he had a choice either. Cortex pretty much trapped him in the Warp Rooms until Coco and N Brio presumably busted him out.

I think it was a case of Flanderization. I don't think Crash was ever dumb, I think he was just ignorant or unaware. Maybe he was deaf. You never see him talking to anyone or agreeing with anything. He just starts running and doesn't stop until he reaches the end. Just because he's goofy and doesn't talk doesn't mean he's like a retarded person. That's what I hated most about the post naughty dog games.
