Tropy is mine finally! Something I didn't think I'd bother trying and here I am. Now I want that Oxide time-beating skin... hmm.
That's a nice list/chart. Helps folks like my son and I who watch some datamine and future grand prix idea videos get a sense of exactly where everyone comes from.so to add food for thought, here's a compilation of characters for Nitro-Fueled speculation (obviously, spoilers below)
Green Slots = characters already playable in Nitro-Fueled
Blue Slots = characters that were datamined and are coming soon
Yellow Slots = characters that are already referenced in the game be through track cameos or other nods
Red Slot = Deconfirmed? (due a skin based on the character)
Black Slot = No evidence in their favor whatsoever
EDIT: obviously I don't think all of them are getting in with the short time we have up until June. But a handful I can see happening still, especially the Twinsanity gang and Viscount
Did you change the one battle mode to lives instead of the default timer? Because that happened to me when I tried cheaping out and making it go quicker.
So it worked then? Because I couldn't remember if it was because my wife won or if that prompted a third playthrough after realizing I set it to lives.Yep.
Wait, seriously? You can just turn off all AI, turn on a second controller and beat the second player who is just sitting there -- which is probably what most people do for these dumb challenges -- but you can't change it from timer to lives and it doesn't tell you that?
That gargoyle is pretty much decoration of the track with no context :P, but going by the fact that Clockwork Wumpa track is in the Fenomena Planet, I guess it could be a thing there in their civilization (Norm and Big Norm are from there; Thunder Struck is another track located in the same planet, as you can see moving statues in there are the same species as them);So who's that purple devil bat in the stained glass windows in that clockwork wumpa level (also seen as a giant statue/gargoyle)? That would be a badass looking character.
I like the idea of guests like that Tony Hawk.
Something else I keep thinking about because of my love for Ripper Roo (teeth and tongue give me these vibes):
Rat Fink, classic auto decal artwork character.
Yes, I noticed that about Thunderstruck. I'd take a purple winged skin for each.That gargoyle is pretty much decoration of the track with no context :P, but going by the fact that Clockwork Wumpa track is in the Fenomena Planet, I guess it could be a thing there in their civilization (Norm and Big Norm are from there; Thunder Struck is another track located in the same planet, as you can see moving statues in there are the same species as them);
I don't know how much are you aware of Crash lore or if you played the original Crash Nitro Kart, but here's a rundown of the tracks and the planets:
Did not know that. Thanks! But now I'm left wondering why there's a Tiny dedicated temple elsewhere in the universe lol.I don't know how much are you aware of Crash lore or if you played the original Crash Nitro Kart, but here's a rundown of the tracks and the planets:
Terra (Krunk is the boss):
Barin (Nash is the boss)
Deep Sea Driving
Fenomena (Norm and Big Norm are the bosses)
Out of Time
Teknee (Geary is the boss)
and then there's Velo's Citadel which is an asteroid and where the coliseum is located and where Hyper Spaceway starts to race against Emperor Velo XXVII.
never was really explained lore-wise (they just wanted a similar track to Tiger Temple) but assuming Terra is so similar to Earth, somewhere it should be some species just similar enough to Tiny :p
The one thing I don't like about the Grand Prix system is if you want to buy a skin, kart paint or wheels that aren't GP limited you're basically screwed cause you have to buy all the GP stuff first.
Yeah, if they must have the rotating store, they should have at least two tabs, one for current GP stuff and one for the permanent stuff. Ideally they'd have tabs for each GP and its respective content as it is made available. Most ideally just let folks buy stuff directly from the customization menu, jeez.
I have more stuff to unlock for Grand Prix but I saw other skins yesterday? Like penta ninja?
Oh, no. I thought you were saying that would fix it. But the reset already happened at that point.
Yeah, I'd love both of these implemented in the game. I just want to know when my next 5x multiplier is too.
You sure you're not thinking about your daily challenges vs the Pit Stop?
I just watched it happen an hour ago. There was something I was gonna buy for 500 coins, it hit 9AM and that item got shuffled away.You sure you're not thinking about your daily challenges vs the Pit Stop?
edit: wait, I just checked the reddit and it looks like they've shifted the times around yet again. Haven't been paying much attention this GP. The Pit Stop definitely used to reset at the same time as the Wumpa Time reset. But then, the daily challenges also used to reset at that time. I dunno why they keep changing them.
Spyro is being sold permanently in the in-game store for months now =)
And just to clarify on this, the store only has one character per day, outside of any that are in a current GP bundle, so you can't necessarily boot the game up, get enough coins for him, and buy him straight away.
Ahhh okay, so it's a bit like how Fortnite handles it? That's a bit of a bummer, but not really a dealbreaker.And just to clarify on this, the store only has one character per day, outside of any that are in a current GP bundle, so you can't necessarily boot the game up, get enough coins for him, and buy him straight away.
Buying the daily character will replace that slot with a different character, so if you find another character you're kind of interested in, I'd probably make sure you have enough coins to buy two (so 3,000), just in case Spyro replaces them.
Getting coins is really quick if you're able to play online. Thanks to the weekend bonus, you can get like 7,000 in like an hour (30 minutes racing, but counting load times etc.) a day from Friday to Sunday, even if you do horribly. So that'd get you enough for 12 characters, give or take.
Yep. However, it's player specific for the most part- new bundles will generally show for everyone the day they come out- but unlike Fortnite, items disappear when you buy them, and are replaced with something new (usually an equivalent item, so if you buy a character, it replaces it with a new character, if you buy a kart, it replaces it with a kart etc.), so you won't get days where stuff in the store is just full of things you already own.
Online doesn't correctly display how racers are actually racing. Almost everyone is drifting, but it shows them hopping around.
