You know what I've been going back to recently? Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. It might actually be my favourite remake of all time - I think they did an absolutely incredible job recreating those three PS1 classics! I completed the first game in a couple of afternoons last week, so I should be finished with Crash 2 very soon.

I might also revisit some classic Xbox games through Xbox 360 backwards compatibility this weekend. The likes of Burnout 3: Takedown, Tony Hawk's Underground and Pro Evolution Soccer 5 are all playable on an Xbox 360 if you've got a hard drive, and I feel like I'm in the mood to rekindle some childhood memories!

Have a great weekend, everyone.

I'll be starting out on an upcoming Xbox Game Pass title for review this week, which I'm very much looking forward to telling you all about... when I can! Aside from that, I too am feeling the nostalgia wave this weekend.

In that case, I might dip into an old Need for Speed title; Unbound's reveal has planted the series back into my mind! I played a fair amount of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered when it was added to EA Play last year, so I might hop back into that one! Criterion knows how to make a good arcade racer let me tell ya.

Have a good one, folks!
