Re: N64 graphics

I think Playtonic might have caused issues for themselves (such as a future barrage of complaints) by naming it the "64- bit Tonic" when the Kickstarter stretch goal said it would be a N64 shader mode, not N64 graphics . I think now a lot of people will be expecting the low-poly N64 graphi...

Re: Almost 6 months after the Switch version release...

I could be wrong and Playtonic actually do turn the game low-poly (though I doubt it as surely that would take a lot of time and then wouldn't they have to re-test for bugs?), but I'm thinking that Playtonic might have set themselves up for a lot of whinging in future by people who expected the gam...

DLC stands for downloadable content, and they said "additional content" in the update, so I took that to mean the DLC.

Re: Almost 6 months after the Switch version release...

I like how the 64 Bit tonic is looking from that screenshot, but I've already seen several people complaining that it is not looking "low-poly". The actual Kickstarter stretch goal only called it a "shader" so I highly doubt they're going to go through the whole game making every...

Re: Playtonic Facebook Groups?

Does anyone have any Rare/Playtonic Games FB Groups open? I was in a rare group but the admin was horrible. I realise this is an old thread, but just incase you're still looking and/or anyone else is interested, there is a Facebook group called "Yooka-Laylee Bat Ship Crazy" but it is a cl...

Re: Playtonic Facebook Groups?

Facebook groups are actually very important to gather people and target audience. There is even a very renowned facebook ads management Los Angeles that helps in promoting and advertising a business on social media. It is a very effective and time saving technique. Oh thank you for that relevant, t...

Re: Yooka-Laylee on Switch through Limited Run Gammes

There will be a limited edition Yooka-Laylee Switch bundle according to Limited Run Games on Twitter. https://mobile.twitter.com/LimitedRunGames/status/1016339392091344896 Good news I guess, but not great for people in different time zones, or with slow internet (like the whole of Australia...).

Re: Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy

Anyone playing the Switch version of this game? I got my copy on release day and have been playing it quite a bit and enjoying it (mainly playing Warped as that was always my favourite game, and also playing a bit of the 2nd game). The hit-box for the time trial clock seems a lot smaller now though,...

Re: "PENNY"

I did try asking Playtonic about who this "Penny" is on Twitter, but they just liked the post and didn't give any information about it.

So I tried asking Steve Mayles as he sometimes replies to questions about games and characters, but he didn't reply. :(

Re: Almost 6 months after the Switch version release...

I also THINK (I'm not sure, of course) they will come up with an excuse not to release the DLC/stretchgoal content... Well they have been known to go really quiet for ages and then suddenly drop big news. Like when we were all waiting for the Switch version of the game and we got no progress update...

Re: Yooka-Laylee on Switch through Limited Run Gammes

Yes you can. The limited part is the pre-order period is the only time you can get it. Miss that window and you miss it forever. Have you (or anyone else reading this who'd care to comment) bought from them before and/or can confirm the 14 day open pre-order window is definitely how they do things ...

Re: Is the DLC still happening?

It could be PR spin - the typical "don't confirm or deny anything until the company is ready to speak" tactic. Someone asked Steve Mayles on Twitter a few days ago what Playtonic were up to and he said they were busy working on something and that we'd find out "soon(ish)". (Hey a...

Interesting. I can't see penny In the first image though? It's graffitied very faintly on the purple beam just above Yooka and Laylee's heads, and there is a heart with an arrow through it right above the name too. It's hard to see in the screen shot, I might post a closer up screen shot if I remem...

Re: Physical Nintendo Switch release by Limited Run Games!

It's been over 2 months since they said soon. Im beginning to feel a very strong disliking (i won't say hate yet) towards playtonics use of the word soon. It's pretty much a lie. Agree. Their wording in the latest update definitely suggested that there’s “several news”, didn’t it? So this can’t be ...

Anyone know what the deal is with the name "Penny" showing up all throughout the game? Did I miss something in the storyline about a character called "Penny"? Or are you all as baffled about it as I am? Anyone have any theories? https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Dfv2i94V4AA6El5.jpg htt...

Re: E3 2018

I just watched the Nintendo E3 Direct - had been looking forward to watching it after work all day, and I agree it was disappointing. I thought there was too much time devoted to Super Smash Bros.
