Re: Funding the Next Game

They should just use Switch as the base system they develop for. They're probably going to have a bigger market on the Switch anyway, despite the whole debacle with the Switch port of Yooka-Laylee. Unless Nintendo pays them to do it the Switch will never be the base system for any third party. Imag...

Re: Funding the Next Game

And then release the game day one on all platforms, now that they're getting the hang of the most recent newcomer, the Nintendo Switch. The Switch will never get the game on day one because it takes so much extra effort to downgrade a game enough to run on it. Playtonic is a small independent studi...

Re: YL Switch Speculation Thread

I'm going to guess 2018 at this point, it seems like they are having a lot of trouble with this version and the months are just flying by with no new news. Personally, I think a release next year could work out for the best, as long as it releases as "Yooka Laylee Deluxe" and comes bundled...

Re: Update Impressions!

Most people (including myself) just don't like frustratingly difficult minigames (at least when they are mandatory to fully complete the game). It's one thing for the main gameplay to be difficult, but with minigames you're forced to master an entirely new gameplay style with a small amount of gamep...

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

That's what I wonder about a lot of modern gaming. What happens when the Wii U/3DS servors go down and all the DLC content is no longer available? Will new players have no way of playing as DLC characters in SSB4? Will we lose access to Pokemon Bank, and thus the ability to transfer pokemon from pre...

Re: [SPOILERS] Galactic Girl (Playtonic's Next Game?)

That character design looks pretty awesome. I'd love for her to be the star of Playtonic's next game and for it to be a scifi third person shooter like Jet Force Gemini!

Re: What might happen to Playtonic if Yooka-Laylee flops...

Eh, the way you talk seems to put into question who the "babies" are. Hint: It's the ones crying about a racist's removal from the game on Facebook. Facebook? So you're friends with them? You should probably block them and exclude them from your whole life, they're just heathens with the ...

Re: Jon Jafari (JonTron) and his role in Yooka-Laylee

I'm assuming what they meant based on the context. The subject at hand was racial and cultural diversity. "Of all forms" means all forms of racial and cultural diversity. Do you believe that they meant to convey that they celebrate all ideologies, no matter how violent, hate-filled, or at...

Re: Jon Jafari (JonTron) and his role in Yooka-Laylee

I'm glad you know 100% that they went out of their way to put him in. I wonder if they did that with their other voice actors as well? Speaking of their other voice actors, I wonder if they hold the same viewpoints as Jon? I'm sure they don't care enough to find out since they aren't being pressure...

Re: Jon Jafari (JonTron) and his role in Yooka-Laylee

What's the difference between Playtonic never collaborating with Jontron again and them not collaborating with him in the final version of Yooka-Laylee? The end result is just that Jontron's involvement is excluded from one extra game. It's not some huge political action, it's just them releasing a...

I'm sick and tired of people only speaking about the semantics of free speech over the actual principle of free speech. Stop trying to undermine people that are fully aware that Playtonic was within their right to remove Jontron, the free speech argument is based solely on the principle of the matt...

Re: Jon Jafari (JonTron) and his role in Yooka-Laylee

Am I the only one around here who doesn't give a turd about JonTron or his voice acting? There are more important matters surrounding YL atm, I think. I also couldn't give a crap about him voicing a character. Makes no difference. I DO however give a crap about ptg getting involved with politics. T...

Re: Jon Jafari (JonTron) and his role in Yooka-Laylee

Why are so many people interpreting this as anti-conservative or whatever? Jontron expressed blatantly racist and white supremecist views. Now, he pretty clearly did so out of ignorance rather than malice, but all the same he still said those things and Playtonic was just distancing themselves from ...

Re: In what game would you place these characters...

They should make a prequel spinoff about Clara. The game would begin with her as normal human, until she's thrown into a magic pot and has all her flesh burned off.

Re: Not very happy

I don't think backers want VIP treatment - else they would've already backed in the really high backer categories - they just don't want backburner treatment. That is, don't treat the non-backers better than the backers. Toyboxes on consoles? Not available to backers! Tough luck if you don't have a...

Re: KickStarter Wii-U Backer

I recommend saving up to get a Switch, just put a little aside each week until the end of the year. Yooka-Laylee and Super Mario Odyssey are going to make this the best holiday for 3D platformer fans in over a decade. And just imagine how cool it'll be to be able to play Yooka-Laylee wherever you wa...

Re: Nintendo Switch support for Yooka Laylee?

I think Playtonic's first priority right now should be fulfilling the promises of the Kickstarter. A Switch version can (and should) come later but right now I'd rather they not devote any time or resources toward it until they're done with the versions they're already making.
