Re: FINALLY - Switch release date!!!

I got mine too :D but I can't play until Saturday late afternoon. :(
Maybe I'll download it early though so it's ready to go when I can play.

Re: FINALLY - Switch release date!!!

Let's hope backers DO receive their codes before the official release on Thursday. I kind of have a bad feeling about it, but let's hope that my gut isn't right. :) I have the same feeling, as I think Nintendo will be really controlling with when they deliver the codes so that it won't leave much (...

Re: Rare's "Sea of Thieves" has a release date

I like how the "T" and the "f" both look like swords having a sword fight, what a clever logo!

Re: FINALLY - Switch release date!!!

I just checked the Australian Nintendo Switch eShop and Yooka-Laylee is listed under the "Coming Soon" section with a price of $60 (Australian dollars) and the option to pre-order it, plus there is a new trailer video (or at least, it was new to me) set to David Wise's Jungle theme music. :D

Re: FINALLY - Switch release date!!!

I wonder if they fixed Yooka having two tongues, and if they put the Yooka-Laylee Rap into the start of the Switch game like in Donkey Kong 64.

Re: FINALLY - Switch release date!!!

Okay sorry Shan, gotta stop you here. Piet was nagging about the silence about the Switch release date, which was annoying and repetitive. I got his feeling about this (I didn't feel different), but these constant repetitions were very annoying. I don't think however that he was nagging for the sak...

Re: FINALLY - Switch release date!!!

You want me to talk(/nag) about other stuff? Are you 100% sure? :lol: Well there's always the fact that there's no physical version confirmed yet... :D Also I just read some comments on another Switch release date announcement article where someone called it " Yooka-Delaylee " - must admi...

Re: FINALLY - Switch release date!!!

A release date's been announced - damn, now what are you going to talk about so much, Piet? :lol: Great news! Bit of a shock as I thought we'd get another update first saying "We're just working out the final issues and will announce a release date soon" before getting the actual release d...

Re: YL Switch Speculation Thread

Well, looks like the December votes had it right. Oh well, I was only 1 month off. I just checked, and I must have changed my vote to December after my initial guess of October passed. I thought it might be December because that's when the Yooka-Laylee Boxie was said to ship, and because just befor...

Re: We Seem To Still Be Waiting

Another vote here for a new update. Even if it just says "Sorry we're still working on issues", it would be good to see something.

Re: Switch Waiting Room - Friendly Conversations While We Wait

I always thought it would be something not crucial to the game, just a little added bonus such as pants for Yooka (because that seems like the sort of thing Playtonic would find funny because of all the people that initially whinged about Yooka having no clothes) Small spoiler, but did you ever col...

Re: Switch Waiting Room - Friendly Conversations While We Wait

I wrote several different possible responses to your reply, but in the end I realized the speculation is just my sad attempt at staying positive about the game :( So, let's move the conversation onto something else: how would you guys feel about discovering Rare is making a new Banjo game? Excited?...

Re: Switch Waiting Room - Friendly Conversations While We Wait

No, absolutely not. It's more like, you built a house, and then you find out every door is just a tiny bit too small for some reason. And now you need to make them all bigger, which means tearing in walls or at least getting new doors and frames, but it's still much, much better than building a new...

Re: Switch Waiting Room - Friendly Conversations While We Wait

When you build the game from the ground up, bugs tend to pop up as a direct result of something you just changed or added into the coding, giving you a good idea of what exactly the problem is. You then fix it before proceeding, so you don't end up with a chain of bugs. But for porting to other con...

Re: Bye bye, Miiverse!

I hope you manage to get in a lot of time playing that Miivers Smash Bros. level in the last few days to enjoy it while it lasts! I haven't touched my Switch in weeks because I've been making the most of the Tingle Bottle feature in Zelda Wind Waker on Wii U before it disappears forever :cry:. I rea...

Re: Switch Waiting Room - Friendly Conversations While We Wait

About collect-a-thon, I really dislike this term. If I want to play a game where all I do is collect, I'll get something like Cookie Clicker or play a fetch quest in some rpg. Games like Banjo or Crash have hazards and action, because stuff is meant to be earned. Part of the earning will be collect...

Re: Switch Waiting Room - Friendly Conversations While We Wait

I’m stoked that the 3D platformers are making a come back! Banjo-Kazooie is one of my absolute favourite games, so I was really disappointed when those sorts of games suddenly disappeared from Nintendo consoles once the Game Cube hit. And back then I didn’t have the internet, so the only way to find...

Bye bye, Miiverse!

Anyone else sad about Nintendo's announcement that they're going to be shutting down Miiverse (Nintendo's version of a social media platform) forever early this November? Many 3DS and Wii U games use the Miiverse platform for certain in-game features (such as the Tingle Bottle feature in Zelda Wind ...

Re: Switch Waiting Room - Friendly Conversations While We Wait

Thanks for explaining about Unity and giving such good examples! :D Wow, testing and bug fixing sounds like it would be so frustrating, I didn't really understand how damaging something like a program update could be, but now I'm amazed that any games ever get finished if that's the sort of thing ga...

Switch Waiting Room - Friendly Conversations While We Wait

These boards have been pretty quiet while people are waiting for the Switch version of the game to arrive, and some of the other threads have been filled with negativity that some people have expressed annoyance over. So for anyone who is still around and wants to pass the time having POSITIVE, FRIE...
