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

I agree that it can be incredibly lame to make purely exclusive content: it can feel like punishing those who didn't choose the right platform. That's why I like to think that if there would be exclusive content, it would be only temporarily exclusive. Heck, maybe Playtonic would let Switch users tr...

Re: Switch Waiting Room - Friendly Conversations While We Wait

Good point Shan.

So I'm curious what everyone else thinks about additional Switch content: do we think it'll come? Do we think it'll be SUPER Switch exclusive (doubtful) or just temporarily exclusive for the Switch? What would you want from it?

Re: GameXplain: Super Mario Odyssey Discussion Brings Up Yooka-Laylee

I too must agree that Odyssey is "easy," but ridiculously fun. I'm just a sucker for immersive games like it, 64, Sunshine, and (obviously) Banjo. It's part of why I loved the first Kingdom Hearts so much too. If you choose to not use the internet, some of those moons are ridiculous to fin...

Re: GameXplain: Super Mario Odyssey Discussion Brings Up Yooka-Laylee

Are you referring to me with that Gamexplain stigma? Because I actually love them: I just know that they complained like crazy about Gloomy Gem Grotto and now it's been horribly gutted and dumbed down :( But I only know about that because Gamexplain is my go to gaming news channel on Youtube :D To b...

Re: Switch Waiting Room - Friendly Conversations While We Wait

I haven't looked at the link yet, but what you've said is very interesting. It would make sense how Nintendo could have possibly created such a "powerful seeming" console whose cost and even mere existence seem to suggest otherwise. So, did Playtonic jump the gun when they announced the Sw...

Re: Switch Waiting Room - Friendly Conversations While We Wait

I'd be afraid of sharks too if I lived in Australia, but for different reasons :lol: I've honestly pondered whether they ought to just try building the game again from scratch. It is true they basically have all of the assets they need, the level designs, and so forth. But I figure that it would be ...

Re: Switch Waiting Room - Friendly Conversations While We Wait

I love that you put YL next to Crash and such in the stores LOL. Bug fixing can definitely be a lot like a rubix cube, particularly something like a port I imagine. 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 codi...

Re: Switch Waiting Room - Friendly Conversations While We Wait

Ah, SANCTUARY! This was a wonderful idea Shan! I've just been peaking into the forums a tiny bit lately because of how much negativity ever new post seems to have. Hopefully we can keep this place as a nice little negativity-bomb shelter. As for development on Unity, from my limited game experience ...

Re: Funding the Next Game

If we're going down that road, I imagine a sequel would do poorly on the other consoles because of how terribly received the game was on them. Plus, kids - a definite target audience - aren't privy to this development fiasco stuff. They'll go to the store, or go on the e-shop, or hear from some othe...

Re: Gloomy Gem Grotto

To be clear, I don't like challenge for the sake of challenge. I like FAIR challenge, where screwing up feels more like my fault, versus the circumstances I was merely put into. For example, there is a pagie at the end of the game that you must do a horrible death slide for with electric fences. It ...

Re: YL Switch Speculation Thread

I have to say, I wouldn't exactly mind a weekly log where Playtonic does tell us what is and isn't going on with the game. I mean, isn't Andy Robinson's whole job supposed to be communicating with us? I imagine he's got plenty of time to spare for this... just sit down for thirty minutes a week and ...

Re: YL Switch Speculation Thread

Just to play devil's advocate, might they have not been working on the switch version during a lot of this time? They said they've been waiting for a new unity release to fix a certain bug... that seems to imply that they stopped working on the switch release until that unity issue could be fixed. I...

Re: YL Switch Speculation Thread

I won't deny the possibility that the game has needed some major rework to run on Switch solely because of the utter lack of news. With that said, they had the game RUNNING on Switch months ago as evidenced by screenshots. It is incredibly more likely to me that they simply spent almost none of that...

Re: Gloomy Gem Grotto

Did many people complain? Only two that I know of, and it just so happens they have a Youtube channel, so you better believe Playtonic changed that challenge. Other reviews may have referenced it, but I didn't listen to any of them: I knew I could trust Gamexplain, so they're the only ones I watched...

Re: Unique World Characters

I totally get the "They may not be the same people we remember" part. There were a few too many places where the game was self-aware, the adults jokes were a bit excessive, and some elements seemed to be thrown in just to appease nostalgia driven people like you and me (those awful Quackfi...

Re: YL Switch Speculation Thread

Yeah, at this point I highly doubt Yooka-Laylee is releasing this year for Switch. Sure, there is still a chance, but I think yesterday's Nintendo Direct is pretty condemning evidence. I heard Playtonic (apparently?) said all YL info would be coming directly from them, so it is possible they just do...

Oh my gosh I love that! It reminds me of the "Bigafoots" in Hailfire Peaks with their giant toes. Moodymaze Marsh... I feel like we easily could have had a Mr. Vile nod here. Or maybe even a sickly-looking lizard character: I can imagine some fun dialogue between him and Yooka. Maybe a lar...
