What more can be said about Spyro the Dragon? It's one of the most memorable video game franchises of all time and it's certainly the pinnacle of video game nostalgia. Today, we're gonna take a look at Spyro and everything about the games.
Origin: Spyro was concieved at the time the Playstation housed no kid friendly video games. Universal Interactive President Mark Cerny gave developer Insomniac Games the challenge to create a 3D game with interactive enemy AI. The original concept for the character Spyro was concieved by art directer Craig Stitz.
Gameplay: Each of the games had basic gameplay, you can breathe fire breath, you can charge and you can glide. Other abilities you can use are Hover, Superfly, Superflame, Supercharge, Glide, Missile Breath (only in Gulp's Overlook), Climb, Dive, Ice Breath, Headbash and Plasma Breath (only in Ripto's Arena). It doesn't get any more fun than that.
Acting: The games housed very well known voice actors.

Once induction and lifeguard training were finally over and done with, Dragon Shores is open to the public. Hence the name of the beach, it is a tropical resort and a vacation spot for anthropomorphic dragons to kick back, relax and let their troubles wash away with the tide. Everyone is taking it easy except for the lifeguard team which consists of the following members: Spyro, Smokey, Daniel and Stanley. Hopefully, the squad will expand and the amount of employees will multiply.
All over the coast, there are countless clusters of dragons and magical creatures wandering around, minding their own business even as they were being occupied with their activities such as surfing, building sandcastles, collecting seashells, swimming, taking photographs, mingling with the tourists and each other and so forth. Additionally, there is sand as far as the eye can see. Surf is up during

Elora's book fell from her hands as the alarm trilled the hour. It slammed shut on the floor, losing the page she was up to, but the frustration she should have felt was overpowered by another. With a groan she sauntered over to the alarm and silenced it, then looked hopefully to the hands. Her wish was denied. 9 o'clock; time to go on patrol.
She grabbed her cloak, took up her lantern, and with a sullen march made her way down the steps and to the front door. Through the glass she could see the ever-thickening gloom, and with a groan of discontent she lit the lantern. Summer Forest wasn't exactly threatening in the dark, but wandering in the shadows of the many trees, the hazy moonlight above burning the edges of the leaves as they rustled in the sharp, irregular breeze, it was...disturbing, but this was a job that had to be done. If any of the critters were stranded outside their homeworlds when the portals went off, left alone in the cold and dark, th

That week that Spyro was staying for his best friend's wedding, Hunter and Bianca spent their last week before their wedding doing last minute wedding plans.
Hunter was finding a tuxedo to wear and Spyro was helping him.
"Say buddy, I never got to ask you, but are you gonna ask Elora to marry you?" Hunter asked.
Spyro looked at him funny. "Why would you ask a question like that?" Spyro asked.
"Well, it just seems strange and obvious.... Elora couldn't stop talking about you, and now that your here, it seems to me, she is avoiding you. I think she is in love with you, I was just wondering if you love her back?" Hunter asked, very curious.
"Oh boy, ever heard of curiosity killed the cat? Or curiosity killed the cheetah for that matter." Spyro told Hunter seriously.
"Yea, I know that phrase, Bianca tells me that constantly when I ask the most random questions, just answer me. Do you love Elora?" Hunter asked again.
Spyro sighed. "Alright, yes I do! I have been thinking about her

Hence the title of the third instalment of the original Spyro the Dragon series, it is named after an animal or creature from the Chinese Zodiac.

A year after Bianca and Hunter's wedding, Spyro thought it was time to propose to Elora. He knew that this relationship he was having with her would last a lifetime.
"I'm thinking about asking Elora to finally marry me." Spyro told Hunter and Bianca.
"Really? It took you that long?" Bianca said.
"Yea, I wanted to be sure of my feelings. Got a problem with that?" Spyro asked the bunny angrily.
"Sorry. I knew you would always end up together! You guys are just going to be the cutest couple! Did I also mention, your kids will also be cutest?" Bianca asked, winking.
"Now now, dear, don't be so excited about this. I know its time for us to think about having children too." Hunter said to his wife.
"Yea, but I want to have children the same time they do."
Spyro shook his head. His friends loved to torture him. It really was embarrassing at times.
"So? When are you gonna ask her?" Hunter asked.
"Tonight. I thought we could take a walk through Fracture Hills." Spyro said.

After being talked some sense into and since he's been advised to go on sick leave, Spyro returned to the safety and cosiness of his home. Unluckily, persistent hacking coughs were let out of his reptilian lips as he was coughing roughly and harshly into his small, right claw while he approached the front of his house. They appeared to be dry, painful coughs with harsh, unpleasant sounds. Elora, who stood in the doorway on the ground floor, greeted him and make him feel at ease like an ordinary wife would welcome her husband home.
"How was your day, Spyro?" Elora enquired, a smile stretched across her lips and eagerly waiting for a reply from the renowned, undisputed hero of the Dragon Realms, Avalar and the Forgotten Worlds.
Unfortunately, he barely spoke a word, his scaly

In the homeworld known as Summer Forest, which is located somewhere in Avalar, Elora was lying on her stomach on the grass whilst kicking her legs back and forth repeatedly; she was under the shade of one of the tall trees below the steps of the castle. An A4-sized piece of white, blank paper was in front of her and she was holding a pen in her right hand. She was in the midst of writing a letter to a certain little, purple dragon who saved Avalar from Ripto's wrath. She felt relaxed, the sun was shining and the sounds of sheep and frog fodder filled the air.
She read the words as she wrote them in her own dainty, neat handwriting on the paper. There were lots of tiny letters forming into curly, wavy words, uniting into joint-up handwriting.

In this assignment, I am going to discuss how video game characters have developed from 2D to 3D. I’m going to use examples such as iconic mascots such as Mario and Sonic the Hedgehog. Furthermore, I’m going to discuss about the key elements of development from 2D to 3D that they go through, the colours, their shapes, the pixels and their movements. Some of the video game characters such as Mario, Pac-Man, Kirby, Link and Sonic the Hedgehog have gone through all the stages of development from concept artwork right up to 3D character designs of themselves.
In Super Mario Bros. and within the official artwork of Super Mario Bros., the colours of Mario’s clothing were reversed. When Super Mario Bros. 2 is released, the colours were fixed, despite the fact that the front cover of the game still depicts him wearing red overalls. In the Super Smash Bros

One summer morning, Spyro and Sparx were helping herding sheep for one of the elder dragon's farm in Stone Hill. Sparx was hungry and was almost tempted to beg Spyro to flame one of the sheep so he can eat the butterfly that would appear after the sheep died. Spyro said no to the dragonfly, there were plenty of wild animals he could flame so Sparx could get a butterfly then.
"There, thank you whippersnapper. It is nice for you to help me." The old dragon said, thanking the purple dragon.
"Eh, don't mention it. I best be heading back to the Artisan home world." Spyro said, as he and Sparx were about to enter the portal, but passed the portal to Dragon Shores. Then he th

It is that time of year again and to celebrate, Elora, Hunter, Bianca, The Professor, Zoe and the other residents of Avalar made a decision to throw a Christmas party at a castle that is located in the Winter Tundra home world. Everyone from all over the Dragon Realms, Forgotten Worlds and other realms and worlds transported themselves with the use of portals or travelled to the venue without any form of transportation.
As the party progressed into the late, starry night, Elora stepped out into the freezing cold and made her way to the peak of the flight of steps. Once there, she brought her walking to a complete standstill and remained still at the centre of the floor in order to keep her mind at ease and to look back on the nostalgic memories she held dear to her heart whilst she let her eyes slowly wander around, taking in the spiritual, picturesque scenery. The next thing that occupied her mind is the purple protagonist, Spyro. If it were

In response in the successful raid on the Nod Communications Center at Lake Ros, Nod communications and SAM targeting and tracking capabilities across Poland have been significantly weakened. Nod forces are now beginning to set up deliberate defenses and allocate forces in preparation for oncoming GDI advances. This includes calling for reinforcements from Belarus to fortify positions across Poland.
Nod forces have summoned reinforcements from southwest Belarus to relocate west to Poland. They will cross the Belarusian/Polish border along Highway 664 at around [date and Zulu time]. These reinforcements include a mixture of Warsaw Pact armor and mechanized infantry, including T-72 Tanks, BMP and BTR PCs, and M2A2 Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicles equipped with twin-tube BGM-71 TOW Antitank Missile Systems.

Just aim for their heads
Pull the trigger
Now that Kaiju is dead

Proceed ahead and stab their chest quick

They want our planet
So we waited
To blow them sky high
Now they are dead
'Cause we got the guns
They got no brains

In other languages: Króliczka Honey (Polish translation for Honey Bunny), Novia Bugs ("a girlfriend of Bugs" in Spanish), Bunnita (in Italy)
Height: 3 feet, 4 1/2 inches
Weight: None of your business!
Honey Bunny wasn't very lucky as she had been created too late to appear in animation along with Bugs Bunny (the Warner Bros. animation unit was already closed for few years). Honey Bunny's career was mainly in comic books, merchandise and in theaters in amusement parks where she had many successes.
Her first comic stories showed her as somewhat giddy teenager, however, over years, when her appearance was changing, her personality matured to such an extent that eventually she became the sanest member of the Looney Tunes family (which is interesting as Honey Bunny is the only Looney Tunes character to NEVER appear in animation!). Her sensible nature provided perfect counterbalance for mischievous

There are a lot of things about the Shatterdome that you like. Of course, there are also things about it that you don't like.

Lego building blocks have become something a juggernaut these past few decades. What with them being famous in the 80's, their fame exploded when they began making licensed sets out of franchises such as Harry Potter, LOTR, Star Wars, Bionicle, etc. Heck, there's even a Legoland and videogame Lego versions of the same property.
I really don't know why I 'should' review the Lego movie. It's already been out a week and people have already made up their minds about it. And besides, there are lots of other movies coming out like Winter's Tale... or the Robocop reboot... or Endless Lov- You know what? Maybe I should encourage more movie-goers to watch this.
