Re: Banjo-Kazooie turns 20 today.

I'm not sure when the ugly plushie is out because the Twitter status I found it posted in said they were planning to open up an online Rare merch shop sometime, and they just said to keep an eye on their social media channels to find out more. The F4F figure does look really nice, but even if I coul...

Re: Banjo-Kazooie turns 20 today.

Oh sorry, I thought since it was available here that surely it would be available for the rest of the world, because Australia doesn't often get things first.

Re: Banjo-Kazooie turns 20 today.

I'll definitely be getting that. The F4F one is way out of my price range. I didn't even know these were a thing, but that looks awesome, I'd like one! (Although what I'd really like is a plush) Did either of you end up getting one? I got mine today - the Totaku figures aren't as nicely painted as ...

Re: Yooka-Laylee: 64-Bit Tonic coming soon!

For anyone interested, Playtonic posted a Q&A about the 64-bit tonic on their website: https://www.playtonicgames.com/64-bit-tonic-a-qa/ Here's the article copied and pasted: 64-bit Tonic: A Q&A Posted on 12 Nov 2018 We recently released a teaser trailer for the 64-bit Tonic, which is coming...

Re: Delightful Details

The Dr Quack statue confused me when I first saw it as it's identical to the one underneath Capital B's golden statue, right? So why is there a second one? I thought it might have been some sort of secret, so I was hitting it and all sorts, but nope , nothing. Oh I didn't even think to try hitting ...

Re: Yooka-Laylee: 64-Bit Tonic coming soon!

Thanks for pointing this out, I had no idea. So Playtonic did deliver what they promised. Too bad all those angry youtube commenters don't know about this. Yeah, once the tonic is made available to fans I'd say they've done exactly what they promised regarding the 64 shader part of the stretch goal...

Re: Banjo-Kazooie turns 20 today.

I know it's not strictly birthday related (unless you count it as late 20 year anniversary merch?), but I didn't want to create a new topic just for this - is anyone else excited for the Banjo-Kazooie Totaku figurine? https://www.mytotaku.com/Files/FigureImages/28_Banjo-Kazooie-20181015131457039.png...

Welcome, and congratulations on the new job. :) You're already been wonderful, as we've had more communication from Playtonic since you've started than what we had over a year or so before then.

Re: Delightful Details

The initials of the heading spell "TWIT". Also the lack of a possessive apostrophe in "Trowzers" makes it feel even more authentic that he's a dodgy salesman who can't even get the grammar in his advertising sign right. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Dqb11a6UwAENzgo.jpg:large Anyone...

Re: Yooka-Laylee: 64-Bit Tonic coming soon!

I think the tonic looks awesome and agree with those saying that it would be cool if we could use this Tonic with another one since it's just cosmetic. Same could be said about the pants tonic too. Or if we could use both cosmetic tonics at once, the 64 bit shading and Yooka wearing pants. That'd r...

I love the look of it, can't wait to try it out! :D Oh and hey, look! My prediction from back in July came true (unfortunately :( ). 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 stre...

Re: Spin-off graphic novel revealed!

Like with any franchise's suplemental material, people don't have to like the comic and can ignore it but disregarding it as fanfiction is harmful for Playtonic and YL because it goes against their plan, like calling merchandise "fan art" or ports "fan games". Disagree. Fan made...

Re: Spin-off graphic novel revealed!

Since he has the blessing of Playtonic I don't consider it fan fiction, I don't think they would approve it if he completely derailed from the source material. To me, if staff from Playtonic had written it and he'd just illustrated it, that would have been alright, but not if it's written by a fan....

Re: Spin-off graphic novel revealed!

I'm definitely not interested either because it's not by Playtonic who are the ones who know what their characters are supposed to be like and what their personalities are. I consider this comic to just be fanfiction, and I don't like fanfiction for any fandom. Plus I don't like how Laylee has been ...

Re: How many Kickstarter milestones are there left for Playtonic Games to complete?

Goals not met yet: - N64 shader (which is a Tonic) - Developer walkthrough - Orchestral score - DLC (free for backers) (Am I forgetting something?) Wasn't there something about adding extra language translation options (or maybe that already happened)? Also I thought someone on these boards mention...
