Re: Ambient Noise in Video Games

I feel like when it comes to music and sound effects, they're usually an afterthought to some people, but the wrong music or sound can feel really out of place and take you out of the game more than you'd think. As a game developer, you really need to think about what kind of effect you're aiming fo...

I'm going to go out on a limb and say November. Later in the year, but still this year.

Re: The music is so damn good

Grant Kirkhope and David Wise get all the attention for this game, but I feel like Steve Burke's tracks are also really good yet seem to go unnoticed. Also, I've said it before and I'll say it again, Hivory Towers is almost as awesome and as catchy as Gruntilda's Lair, it's probably my favorite trac...

Bounty Battle: Should Yooka & Laylee Be in This Game?

Okay, first off, what's Bounty Battle ? Well, it's a game being made by French game developer DarkScreen Games. Currently there's a crowd-funding campaign going on for it here: https://www.fig.co/campaigns/bounty-battle As you can see, it's already reached it's goal! I don't know if they'll have str...

Source Gaming - The Next Playtonic Games Protagonist

An article on Source Gaming discusses what characters could potentially be the protagonists of one of Playtonic's next games. Read the article here: http://sourcegaming.info/2017/05/18/the-next-playtonic-games-protagonist/ Personally, two of the characters they listed I had the same exact thoughts o...

Re: "Spit 'n' Polish" website update (improvements coming, Switch version definitive version?)

It's out for more than a month and we've had only 1 update! The forum seems to be dying out and we don't get important info... I love the game, but c'mon PTG, the communication is pretty... bad, tbh. It feels like no community is truly safe from its own bad apples. But the fact that a community has...

"Spit 'n' Polish" website update (improvements coming, Switch version definitive version?)

So in case you haven't noticed, the guys over at Playtonic updated their website with a new entry. I suggest you read it now before we continue this discussion: http://www.playtonicgames.com/spit-n-polish/ Basically, a major update is coming to the game, specially one that improves many things that ...

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

Now that I've finally beaten the game, I can safely say that Playtonic is DEFINITELY building up something with this lady and Blamphibians. I knew OF this mysterious character before I expanded world 5 and got to her, but I didn't know fully who she was and what she'd say... I remember saying she'd ...

Re: GameXplain streams 1 hour of Yooka-Laylee

I kind of wish that these guys would just leave the game alone...if they don't like it then why continue playing it? Maybe just to say they beat it? Derrick seemed to be on the verge of quitting, but I find it better to see a game through to the end, to judge it as a whole before dismissing it outr...

Re: Character Voices

I guess I can see why some people would have the voices used, but I thought they were fine. I actually like Yooka and Laylee's voices, and I thought Trowzer's voice matched his personality.

Hey how's this, how about another Cloud Cuckooland? Or just a world with a random assortment of nonsense that rarely makes sense? I'm big into complete non-sequitors.

Re: Favorite Character (Potential Spoilers, depending on the character)

So far the Pagie from Hivory Towers in the Moodymaze Marsh-Area that runs away from you by kung fu-kicking you. I don't know, for some reason that one stuck with me and wouldn't let me go. :D ("Stay away, I know Origami!!") THAT was a memorable one! :P Actually, I like the Pagies in gener...

Re: Ideas for Yooka-Laylee DLC

So now that I've actually beaten the game, I'm hoping the DLC is something that picks up on the "sequel hook"-laden ending we got... Like, for example, I want to know what happened to Capital B and Dr. Quack. What book did they end up in? What kind of world is that? Or how about this: We f...

Re: RUMOR: SNES Classic Edition coming this Christmas, NES Classic discontinued because of it

Something tells me Nintendo of America isn't going to translate any Japanese-exclusive games with this one. Heck, the NES Classic Edition in North America was much different than Japan's Nintendo Classic Mini: Family Computer. Just for comparison, here are games that both versions had: - Balloon Fig...

Re: Rextro and kartos

Having beaten the game now, I can safely say, I think the hate for these characters is overrated. I haven't played ALL of Rextro's games at his arcade, but the ones I played to collect Pagies aren't bad. The only one that really annoyed me was that Kartos Kart one in world 1, otherwise I thought the...

Re: Playtonic's next project

Isn't Donkey Kong 64 just Banjo-Kazooie with more collectables? ...Well, I guess not exactly, since you can switch between characters... One major difference is that DK64 often has you do the same thing over and over for every kong, as you can't collect bananas, banana balloons, coins, blueprints o...

Re: Final Boss Fight Frustrations (obvious spoilers)

I beat Capital B! ...I have to say, it ended rather abruptly. Like when I landed the final blow, and it switched to a cutscene, I was like "wait, that's it? I mean, it was a lengthy boss fight, but... weird." I can't help but remember landing the final blow on Gruntilda in Banjo-Kazooie an...

Hey Eekumbokum, The final boss fight also took me some time, but slowly learning how to do it is kinda what I want from such a fight to begin with (though unfortunately you have to do the first and second phase over and over again, which are easy and take forever). That being said, it seems you are...

SCREW THE FINAL BOSS FIGHT IN YOOKA-LAYLEE!! I mean, maybe I'm just bad or I don't know how to deal with those fricking bee-bombs, but holy crap I've spent three freaking hours (maybe less) trying to beat Capital B, and most of it was working to get to the point I keep dying at!
