Spyro Reignited Reviews: Does Spyro 2 hold up as well as we remember it

And I don’t really know what to do about it. That’s my issue though. I had something else planned for today. But instead, I’m just going to spend some time writing, stream of consciousness style, when it comes to my initial feelings about the new Destiny expansion that came out this week.

Wooderon’s Initial Impressions of Destiny: Forsaken

I’m also fairly certain I never paid for it, and somehow have access to it anyway. Which I’m not complaining about, this was one of the expense ones.
