Snoop Dogg will get a copy of ‘Spyro Reignited Trilogy’ delivered by the dragon

All Scaled Up Reveal Trailer | Spyro™ Reignited Trilogy | Spyro the Dragon

The Spyro Reignited Trilogy compilation isn’t releasing until next week, but the purple dragon seems to have one fan who is particularly excited to play it. Rapper Snoop Dogg showed such great interest in the remastered games that Spyro himself set out on a journey to deliver him the game in person.

Following a tweet in late October in which Snoop Dogg expressed his excitement for the game, calling Spyro his “lil neffew,” the Spyro Twitter account posted that he was embarking on a cross-country road trip to bring Snoop Dogg a copy of the game.

The account then began using the hashtag “SpyroToSnoop,” and posted videos of a giant fire-breathing Spyro vehicle that is apparently making the long journey.

Swung by the Stone Hill Castle to grab the new Spyro Reignited Trilogy game coming 11.13. On my way to @SnoopDogg now, but his crib got nothing on my castle ???? ???????? #SpyroToSnoop #SpyroDrone pic.twitter.com/OeXfx4dqXo

Yes, that is an actual flying drone making the trip, rather than a wheeled float of the type created for a Thanksgiving celebration. Spyro the Dragon means business, and though it seems a little terrifying to have him soaring through the air and breathing fire, it certainly fits his character.

We’re also pretty sure that Snoop Dogg can make use of that fire ability … for baking with his pal Martha Stewart, of course.

Spyro has been sharing quite a bit of information on his adventure thus far. Just a few days ago, he had nacho chips for a snack and ended up vomiting onto an interstate highway.

Later, Spyro posted a video of someone receiving a tattoo of his face. That’s dedication to a character that has been around for decades, and with the pristine overhaul Toys for Bob gave the original trilogy, it’s as good a time as ever to get a Spyro tattoo.

Wow. I'm flattered. #SpyroToSnoop #SpyroDrone pic.twitter.com/WaGKB25yWI

Rather than simply increase resolution or improve textures, the developers of the Spyro Reignited Trilogy gave the games a massive overhaul to the point of looking like current-generation titles. Voice actor Tom Kenny — who played the title character in the second and third games and is best known as Spongebob Squarepants — will voice Spyro in all three games, as well.

Spyro Reignited Trilogy is out on November 13 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. It is not currently planned for PC or Nintendo Switch.

Here's how to turn off the DualSense controller speaker on your PS5.

How to sign up for the Hades 2 playtest
Melinoe fighting in a dark forest.

We first saw Hades 2 last year when it was announced, but it has yet to receive a release date. We know it will first be coming to early access, just like the first game, but the only timeframe we have is the second quarter of 2024. It appears that Supergiant might be closing in on that date, however, as you can now sign up for the first playtest and experience the game even before it comes to early access. This technical test is a said to be a major step toward early access to resolve any technical problems before a wider audience can play. Here's how you can sign up to be part of a small team selected to play the game before anyone else.

The best Fallout 4 mods
Everyone's Best Friend

The Fallout games, at least since Fallout 3, have been absolutely massive games in both scale and popularity. The post-nuclear-war setting is rife with interesting stories to experience and monsters to kill. Fallout 4 was the last single-player entry in the series before Fallout 76 took the game into a persistent multiplayer experience. A large appeal of these games is how you are able to actually role-play and immerse yourself in the game world, which isn't so easy with other players jumping around in their underwear. Thanks to mods, it has never been a better time to revisit the last "pure" Fallout game.

Just like Skyrim, Fallout 4 mods are incredibly popular. Some are inspired to fix the numerous bugs and glitches Bethesda games have become famous for, while others look to add new features. As open and dynamic as the base game is, mods just open the door to an almost endless supply of tools you can use to extend the life of your game. With so many mods available, it can be a little overwhelming to know where to start. We've sorted through all the best Fallout 4 mods out there and came up with the best ones you should install before stepping out of the vault once again.
