Does Nintendo consider Playtonic Games an indie developer?

Does Nintendo consider Playtonic Games an indie developer?
If no then fine. However if yes, then Nintendo not showcasing Yooka-Laylee at the end of the most recent indie showcase was quite the disgrace to such a good game.

Here's the link to the showcase

Nintendo's mixes of the DKC and DK64 games music in Smash Bros are horrrible

We all know the DKC trilogy and DK64 had amazing music. David Wise, Grant Kirkhope and co did an amazing job there. They took the limitations of the SNES and N64 consoles musically and worked wonders. Nintendo has since remixed many of these tracks for the different Smash Bros games. In almost every...

Best ever?
Maybe? It's certainly up there in my opinion. One of the best ever.

What does Playtonic feel about the Goldeneye and Perfect Dark speedrunning scene?

Are the Playtonic blokes happy that two of their best past games are still being played competitively to this very day?

It could be Yooka-Toolee.

Re: Lessons Playtonic shouldn't learn from Yooka Laylee

Don't listen to the paid reviews who were paid to hate on Yooka-Laylee. Yooka-Laylee is a great game. We all know the fair reviews honestly reviewed the game.

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle - A discussion

As we all know the first game on the Nintendo Switch to feature Grant Kirkhope's work is Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. I want to firstly make a quick comparison between this and Snake Pass which featured David Wise's talents. Both Grant and David are masters of their musical craft, it seems UBIsif...

Re: "Spit 'n' Polish" website update (improvements coming, Switch version definitive version?)

Basically, a major update is coming to the game, specially one that improves many things that people criticized the game for or requested the game should have, up to and including going through dialogue faster, skipping cutscenes, adjusting the sound on the character voices, and most notably, impro...

Re: GameXplain - Yooka-Laylee's Patch

I'm sorry, I just can't get behind what you're saying. I can't get behind what you are saying either. You seem to be ignoring the facts here. Jim's reviews are pure entertainment and to that end they do a good job. Even I laugh at some of them. gameXplain hate Yooka-Laylee and are bashing it quite ...

Re: You know what's awesome?

Jim Sterling thought differently I guess. I haven't read his review, but I hope the stamina bar wasn't one of his complaints and a reason for why he gave YL a 2/10. Jim's reviews are pisstakes done for the entertainment value, not to be taken as serious reviews. Then why are his reviews allowed on ...

If that is true, then they could at least update the track names now. Leaving them like this is just a horrible mess.

Re: Update is 6x the size of what comes on the disk! WHY?!

The issue is not the update itself. That's fine. With big games like this you have deadlines for the disc to go gold, but work on the final game still goes on, hence a day 1 update. The issue is years down the track when you want to play this ans re-install it, will the patch still be around on a se...

The YL soundtrack, track names are so bad

For the older games like DK64, BK, the DKC games, etc etc, all of the soundtrack names were cool. Examples are: ⋅ Fear Factory: DKC ⋅ Stickerbrish Symphony: DKC2 ⋅ Mining Melancholy: DKC2 ⋅ Sub-Map Shuffle: DKC3 ⋅ Krematoa Koncerto: DKC3 ⋅ ...
