Re: What other world themes would you like to see?

One world type I've been dying to see in Banjo - and thus now Yooka-Laylee - would be a cowboy themed world. Old west town, railroads, mines - stuff like that. Other than that, I'd like to see generic themes "spiced up," like how Hailfire Peaks had a Roman flare on the fire side (in additi...

Re: Is the DLC still happening?

As I've waited for other indie games I'm looking forward to, I've decided Playtonic's communication isn't too bad. Shovel Knight, for example, has had very little news about its newest campaign. The fact that Platyonic didn't announce anything super cool on the game's anniversary suggests to me that...

Re: Yooka-Laylee's first anniversary!

Wow, been a while since I was on here. Came by because I recently played through (most) of the game again, and was curious if the silence on Playtonic's part was possibly less so on the forum. Oh well :( I'd like to weight in on the topic at hand though. I can totally understand some stretch goals n...

Re: Yooka-Laylee on Switch - first impressions (by first-timers!)

I actually found the Kartos challenges to be fine. Kind of fun, although I'm DEFINITELY in the minority: lots of people I've heard from hated those challenges. I never thought about the variable-speed element: that totally may be why! The thing with this game is I feel like a lot of the haters canno...

Re: Yooka-Laylee on Switch - first impressions (by first-timers!)

Oh gosh, they used to be WORSE!?! I'm up to the stupid hurdle one (in Capitol Cashino) which just goes on and on and on and on and on... I gave up after about 8 tries and still not even reaching the finish line, so I hate the idea that I have to finish it at least twice to get both Pagies. :? The H...

Re: Beat roughly 2/3 of the game, time for an opinion and questions

I like what you had to say. Should I put the Hivory Towers world-3-room water element in the glitches/bug thread? Because that really irritated me too... As for the flying move taking away how awesome cheesing the game is, I totally get it. However, even Banjo arguably had this problem, even if you ...

Re: Yooka-Laylee on Switch - first impressions (by first-timers!)

Having to beat them a second time was a problem IMO. If my first successful finish of the game beats Rextro's high score, I shouldn't have to go through it again. At least 2 of the minigames there were played with losses the first couple of times, then barely survived and beaten with a score that i...

Re: Ice Race glitch

I've yet to have this glitch, but I'll go ahead and add it into the list in the bugs & glitches thread! Is this specifically in the Switch version, or are you playing a different one?

Re: Yooka-Laylee on Switch - first impressions (by first-timers!)

I'm really enjoying the game, don't really have any complaints except for one small thing that would make fighting the bosses less tedious if you die - it would have been nice if you were given the option to skip the dialogue scene before the boss if you've already gone through it once, so that whe...

Thanks for all your work keeping this updated and organised! :) I've been back to Glitterglaze Glacier several times and transformed into the snow plough trying to recreate that slowdown fault I had the first time, but it hasn't happened since. Hopefully it's just one of those "WTF?" mome...

Re: Bugs & Glitches - Switch Edition

Updated! I've decided to start putting the newer bugs up at the top of the list so that there is some kind of order going on... it was seriously just haphazard before. I may go back and add the date the bug was added to the list next to each one moving forward as well.

Re: Bugs & Glitches - Switch Edition

Is anyone else playing Australian version? I'd be interested in knowing whether that's contributing significantly or not. I'll update the screen error thing with the arcade game and the snowplow issue. I hope we stop discovering problems soon!

I played Yooka-Laylee for the first time today! :D I don't know if this is a glitch or if something just went wrong with my Switch (overheated?) but when I was in Tribalstack Tropics battling the minions to rescue the explorer skeleton lady, a black screen with an error message appeared saying some...

Oh gawl I hate the first person aiming! I was so badly hoping for gyro controls on Switch... alas, no :( It's been said plenty of times: Yooka-Laylee came out too soon. They should have spent several more months polishing the game up - and that's without considering the terrible condition the other ...

Re: Yooka-Laylee on Switch - first impressions (by first-timers!)

That's interesting you've been warned about later worlds, because I saw lots of people appreciating those ones more, particularly worlds 3 and 5. But I think the overall world design is OK. Not great, but not terrible. Definitely a place Playtonic will improve on moving forward. I'm glad to hear you...

Hahahaha I can feel your pain! I actually was missing a quill in TT as well, but my Hunter tonic tracked it down. I certainly hope this isn't a bug... that would be a real doozy. Also, my 2nd time through on Switch so far DID have Heidi popping up in the right spot pre-expansion. It looks like rando...

Why So Much Hate???

When Yooka-Laylee first came out, reviewers bashed it like crazy, and understandably so: the game apparently ran like trash on Xbox and PS4. Many reviewers seemed to let those technical issues multiply every little problem with the game. However, many people still seemed to indicate one major thing:...

Re: Playtonic Reddit AMA

I imagine Playtonic learned a boatload about developing for Switch: that can only be good for Switch owners! They also indicated that they have been listening to tons of feedback, if we couldn't already tell by the post-launch patch. I hope they have lots of good stuff for the sequel. It does seem t...
