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...

reasons :lol: It's funny how all attention for YL is dying (and again; I DO like the game), while people like you are talking about 'other stuff'. That 'stuff' is discussed like 100 times already and there is literally NOTHING to discuss about YL anymore (hence the dead forum).. Except.. The things...

See "improving" as in "having new thoughts or takes on how this situation could get better". You're still at "this situation is bad" and it doesn't seem like you get past this point any time soon. Don't bother, he's just determined to be miserable and make everyone els...

Re: Y-L ... disappointment

Saying your constant whining is annoying =/= saying Playtonic doesn't deserve criticism But I guess some people can't tell those apart. An allegory: We're on a sinking boat and you're the one guy constantly screaming "We're sinking!!!" at the top of his lungs while the rest of us try to i...

Re: YL Switch Speculation Thread

At this moment, nobody can deny anymore that this is taking WAY TOO LONG... Fact. :roll: Disagree. I think it is taking as long as it needs to (ie. I don't think they are deliberately dawdling) for them to do it properly and make sure they get out as many bugs as possible. Doesn't mean I don't wish...

I just can't understand that you guys are even talking/thinking about a physical version atm, while we don't know anything about the digital version yet... That's even surpassing the 'wishful thinking' stage... :roll: Just because the Switch game isn't finished yet and they haven't told us much abo...

Re: YL Switch Speculation Thread

It's still that case that YL on Nintendo Switch will be digital only, right? For Kickstarter backer rewards they said they could only do digital Switch versions due to cost and logistics. But when asked, they've said that they do want to release physical Switch retail copies. So maybe it's just wis...

YL is not even listed.. :')


The Nindies showcase is not untill tomorrow. Not to mention, I think it's up to Nintendo to decide what goes into these things.


Maybe Nintendo also don't want to draw attention to a game that could compete with Mario Odyssey?

Re: Funding the Next Game

Mostly I wish them to be able to fund the next game themselves, just to get rid of any obligations towards potential backers. They should keep quiet if they want to and take all the time they need to polish it up. I agree, I hope they can fund their next game themselves. They started Playtonic Game...

'As our first significant game update nears completion, we will soon be entering the Nintendo Switch-specific testing phase. And hopefully, if our test team doesn’t break it too badly, we’ll be in a position to deliver you a final release date shortly after.' They announced THIS (^) just before the...
