I started FYIG in 2012 as a place for people to write about whatever interests them. My wife, Danielle Crandell, has joined me in making this site the best it can possibly be. You'll usually find me writing about hockey, gaming, or the latest in technology.

Spyro Peace Keepers

FYIG Plays Spyro The Dragon (PS1) Part 6 – Peace Keepers

A little bit of backtracking to show how to get the Artisan flight area opened, then on to the Peace Keepers world. Cannons, purple goop, and mooning soldiers all wait!
Spider-Man Catch Venom

FYIG Plays Spider-Man (PS1) Part #5 – Catch Venom

We've caught up with Venom! Or rather, he caught up with us then immediately took us on a chase. But we caught him after swinging after him through the city. Will he tell us where Mary Jane is?
Spyro 1 Toasty

FYIG Plays Spyro The Dragon Part 5 – Toasty

Time for the last world in the Artisan's world. This one is in the mouth of a stone dragon apparently. It also happens to include this world's boss. A sheep on stilts. That's right folks. A sheep. On stilts. Surely gaming villains can't get any more devious than this.
Spider-Man PS1 Spider vs. Rhino

FYIG Plays Spider-Man (PS1) Part 4 – Spidey vs. Rhino

Rhino is rampaging at Omnitech! Another piece of tech has been stolen. While recovering that isn't an option, Spidey and Black Cat must stop Rhino. Or rather, Spidey must stop Rhino because Black Cat immediately gets knocked out. And after the battle, Black Cat is taken away. But by whom?
Spyro Town Square

FYIG Plays Spyro The Dragon (PS1) – Town Square

Honestly, I'm not quite sure what to say about this video. One more world attached to the Artisans. This one being Town Square. There are some new enemies, chickens give health, and that's about it.
Spider-Man Police Chopper Chase

FYIG Plays Spider-Man (PS1) Part #3 – Police Chopper Chase

We just saved J.J.J. and he decides to send the police after Spider-Man! So now Spider-Man must evade the apparently military-grade helicopters that the NYPD have. Seriously, what are the police thinking just shooting rockets at buildings?
