Re: Lessons Playtonic might learn from Yooka-Laylee...

Yes, I agree that the flying was just too powerful of a move. Once you got the flying movie exploring or traversing the worlds became completely trivialized. Past games put better restrictions on flying to preserve the worlds having meaning in regards to exploring them and traversing them. In a 3D p...

Re: Banjo-Kazooie or Banjo-Tooie?

Banjo Kazooie is better for me. Tooie's worlds were too big and tedious often times. The stuff to do in them was great, but many of them were just so large and sprawling and spread out that traversing the world felt like a chore. Also with these big worlds a lot of it begins to look alike and blur t...

Re: Lessons Playtonic might learn from Yooka-Laylee...

YL is a pretty good game, it had potential to be great and subsequent games can be. Here are the lessons I would hope they would learn: 1. More worlds, smaller size per world. More worlds and variety is always a good thing. YL had the absolute minimum # of worlds you could get away with and have it ...

Re: Gloomy Gem Grotto

I also want to voice my extreme displeasure with this change. YL was a very, very easy game even before this change. Why take one of the very few semi-challenging areas in the game and effectively delete it? They could have just nerfed it a tiny bit (which I still would have been against) but they t...

Re: Update Impressions!

It's a video game. Losing/dying/failing is part of a video game. A game you can't lose is a game where winning is meaningless. I don't just want to mindlessly mash buttons and progress through the game. There's supposed to be parts that challenge you and that you have to do over and over, getting be...

Re: Update Impressions!

I was excited about the updates until hearing they nerfed things. Fixing bugs is great, quality of life improvements are great. However YL is a very easy game overall and there were like 2-3 remotely challenging things and they made them all easier? Must every single game be dumb downed and streamli...

Re: Zero Punctuation review for Yooka-Laylee

They put the flying move towards the "end" of the game for a reason, however with the expandable world concept it really isn't at the 'end' if you don't want it to be, you can get it decently early on if that' your goal. The flying is way too open ended and versatile. It does indeed trivia...

The music was good, but not what I was expecting

All the music was top notch, particularly the World 2 theme as you are in the Iceometric Palace. However in this day and age of modern gaming, video game music has sadly been sorta pushed to the background. As video games have become more about story, presentation, and immersion, music is used less ...

Re: Gloomy Gem Grotto

One of my favorite parts of the game. Not every single part of the game should be ridiculously easy. Having a challenging or frustrating part is good for the game. 100% completion should be something you earn.

Re: Yooka Laylee is Nostalgia Gone Wrong

YL is a good game that hipster critics are being too harsh on because its en vogue to poo-poo on "nostalgia"

There were some aspects of YL that fell flat, there's lots of room for improvement, however overall it's the best 3D platformer that has been made since Super Mario Galaxy 2.

Ideas for worlds

One of the major feedback items I see a lot, both on these forums and elsewhere, is simply that more worlds would have been better. I loved all 5 worlds and never thought they were too big or dull or anything like that, but I think 10 medium sized worlds would have been far more compelling than 5 gi...

Re: A list of Issues I Have with the game.

Flying really does trivialize the game. They give it to you at the end for a reason because once you get it, going back to the old levels is just too easy to do stuff. Level 5 is designed with flying in mind but the other levels were designed for you to be on the ground, so when you get flying and g...

Re: Secret Pirate Treasure (possible spoilers)

I thought it was odd that nothing happened after you collect them all. I thought there would be some sort of explanation as to what they were or at least something.

As far as I can tell outside the trophies/achievements related to them, they have no purpose or impact on anything.

Re: Why was the story so bland and uninteresting?

90s era platformers typically did not have deep or interesting stories, whereas games today do. So maybe they were trying to stay true to that. I personally think the game would of bennefiting from applying a modern approach to the story, like actually hiring a story writer to come up with somethin...

Re: Yooka Laylee difficulty. What do you think?

I found most of the game to be trivially easy. There were a few tricky puzzles or challenges and those I enjoyed the most. I understand most of the pagies need to be easy, but the game could have used a few more tough ones (and a few more medium difficulty ones as well).

Why was the story so bland and uninteresting?

I've 100% completed the game. Overall liked it alot. Will almost certainly pick up a a sequel if it's ever made. I found the majority of critics complaints to be almost completely unfounded. One thing I can't help but to feel very disappointed with was the weak story line and characters lack of pers...

Re: Wishes For Twooka Laylee (Non official name)

1. More worlds. 5 is simply not enough. Even though they were big and interesting, nothing is more interesting than variety. 10 medium sized worlds is better than 5 gigantic world's. 2. Better story and characters. The story was pathetic. At no point did I feel any interest in the characters or thei...

Yes I missed it twice myself, only wasted about 5-10 minutes of searching.

It's in a dark room at an odd a...
