Humble Monthly Bundles tend to have one or two heavy hitters in each lineup and this time around there are technically more than two. October's bundle features Spyro Reignited and Crash Bandicoot N. Sane trilogies.

Spyro reignited everyone's nostalgia when the remastered trilogy dropped for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in November 2018 but the fans who use PC now had to wait for almost a year until the game released in September 2019. With PC support come great deals however and the purple dragon found its way to Humble Monthly just one month later.

There are three games from the Spyro series that are packed in the Reignited Trilogy - Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage! and Spyro: Year of the Dragon. The collection is sitting in the comfortable 90 per cent positive review zone on Steam but one should be mindful of the optimisation since not everyone was thrilled about it.

This is not all that the bundle offers though. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy went through similarly timed exclusivity hoops but both the release on console and later release on PC happened a year before Spyro's remasters, respectively. The insane marsupial's trilogy includes Crash Bandicoot, Cortex Strikes Back and Warped.

Similarly, the nostalgia-driven fans enjoyed the new graphics for the trilogy and praised the developers for staying true to the original vision from Naughty Dog.

Each of these trilogies stands at $39.99 / €39.99 / £34.99 when they are not on sale. Therefore, one would dare say a proper PSA is in order, for anyone who would like to grab these nostalgia pieces at a low price.

Naturally, there will be more games added to the bundle over the course of the month but for now it's the two trilogies and Call of Duty: WW2.
