To Anonymous: Don't get you're hopes up too high about playing cinder throughout the game.

Wheeeeee i am so excited about the new game (ecpecially the playable cynder)
#118 Forgotten World 23:16:15 16/02/2008
I mean that there is no way that vivendi can make the same title in one year on the PS3 or Xbox 360.
#117 Forgotten World 23:11:36 16/02/2008
Vivendi may have published this game, yet another company may have made this game.

Another thing to ad, is that the first comment in the last spyro game was posted at the 29th of may in 2007. In this game it was 2-12-08 while this game is going to be finnished in october of 2008. Meaning the company is going to work harder than the last company did in the last game. Am I wrong?
#115 Forgotten World 21:35:40 16/02/2008
I ment to say the other charaters.

Cinder included.
#114 Forgotten World 21:33:33 16/02/2008
Another statement I want to say, is that Hunter, Spyro himself, and Sparx are in the whole story. so if you expect them to all survive in this game, you might be wrong!

While you get this message, please look into velvet octopus for more information.
#112 Forgotten World 21:15:23 16/02/2008
They did in fact move this game to another company. plus this company also did many licensed games from movies, am i wrong. meaning the company may have misenterpereted the wrist bands, and many other things.

Er, well... In video games I've always known "co-op" to mean two players playing at once. Not like a two-player mode with a minigame or something, but two players playing the at the same time on the main part of the game. Like Super C or Ikari Warriors or something. cynderlightlife's comment sounded like co-op is supposed to mean INSTEAD of Spyro, you can play as Cynder, but... I don't think that's what they meant. (I hope not; Two dragons at once kicking butt would be so awesome, and a first in a Spyro game- just like appearing on the PS3 and XBox 360, and free-flight everywhere.)
Just my opinion. I know it's really long so thanks for reading if you did. xD
