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

Confidence: I think taking an unpopular stance against someone who has 3.1 million subscribers/supporters shows a LOT of confidence and backbone. Especially when you risk losing/alienating a lot of your market by doing so. It could , but that possibility starts to leave the table once you try and p...

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

It's very easy to jump to the defense of JonTron because he's funny and likable. There was a lot of things he said that can't be defended, yet you're tempted to rationalize it because it's coming from the mouth of someone that you have established a very positive relationship with. I think JonTron ...

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

Were they really pressured into doing that? Removing the cameo? That might change my view somewhat as I always thought it was their own decision. Do you have a source? Everything we've seen suggests it. It suddenly blew up on NeoGAF two weeks after the controversy, users started finding excuses to ...

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

Sales numbers are more important than profit for gauging reception of the actual game and who'll be following Playtonic in the future. Yooka-Laylee is enormously benefited by its Rare revival novelty buzz which Yooka-Twolee or Yooka-Whatever won't have, giving the team more than enough reason to pan...

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

As someone who's spent the past two years literally lobbying for JonTron's Yooka-Laylee dismissal and was briefly on Playtonic's side when all this started, I still don't know why people think the big deal is that and not Playtonic's record-breakingly horrendous handling of damage-control that happe...

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

I don't think sales matter to Playtonic at this point as much as having their entire legacy hitched to JonTron, his fans, and a controversy that they didn't follow through with properly. This isn't like the rest of the industry where employees have no attachment to their company's reputation and are...

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

The first step will be to find literally any other publisher to partner with since Team17's community manager is the last person they need interacting with fans going forward. From insulting "all the anime avatars" (despite looking like an anime character himself) to making people think th...

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

http://i.imgur.com/ItweZfI.jpg The big issue isn't JonTron being removed. It's Playtonic responding in what appeared to be a massive kneejerk reaction to appease people like the above while offering little assurance that the decision was even one the employees had confidence in. ...Because no matte...

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

The more I think on it, the less sympathetic I feel towards Playtonic in all of this. Yes, JonTron obviously should have never been in the game for an abundance of reasons ( tried to tell y'all ), but the people dissenting right now are an audience that Playtonic willingly teamed up with Jon pre-Kic...

Re: How would you improve Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts?

- Hide collectible vehicle parts inside the actual game worlds and not just Showdown Town. - Allow vehicles to be sorted into folders so that your list of 200-something vehicles can be more easily-navigated. - Replace the Banjo NPCs with the Rare-owned Diddy Kong Racers to help clarify its status as...

Re: Nintendo Direct

I think Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem looked better than anything I could have possibly expected. Probably because I was expecting it to be similar to the one SMT game I played (SMTIV) after Nintendo's email urged me to do so to prepare for SMTXFE, only to discover it was completely terrible.

Re: JonTron in Project Ukelele

I don't understand the JonTron hate. He would bring so much free publicity to Project Ukulele. Yeah, and developers should actually have standards for the publicity they try to make for themselves. Or should Playtonic just go ahead and sign Pewdiepie up too so that both obnoxious fanbases can endle...
