Re: YL Switch Speculation Thread

I tried to warn everyone that it would be 2018 or later and no one believed me. I remember arguing about it with FangztheWolf and Scrubber and Piet among others. They forget that this game is 30fps even on the mighty PS4 Pro. They probably need to rebuild the whole game from the ground up in order ...

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...

I'll try to not think about the game and respond here until we got news... okay crap, I just did.

Re: Griff the Winged Lion, Back on KickStarter, New Trailer and Demo

Oh wow, it's the second attempt apparently, they already did one campaign. Anyway, I think this looks interesting!

Re: Fortune Fish's first game: Kroko Bongo

It's actually not the first game, this one was. But yes, I downloaded it and I'm curious about it. It looks like a mobile version of DKC.

Yes. We might hear news about a physical version once the release is imminent (comparing it to how it went down with the PS4/XBOX One versions).

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 bu...

Re: Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle - A discussion

Very nice read, thank you! I don't have the game since I'm still waiting for my order (~42£ seems like an acceptable price I think), but I'm really excited. Reception is very good so far (aside of Zelda, best new Switch game, "must-have") and I also heard great things on how Grants music g...

Re: Funding the Next Game

Mostly I wish them to be able to fund the next game themselves, just to get rid of any obligations towards potential backers. They should keep quiet if they want to and take all the time they need to polish it up. I agree, I hope they can fund their next game themselves. They started Playtonic Game...

Re: POLL: Playtonic Kart Racer + Online Multiplayer

I may be a minority, but I really don't care about a YL kart racer. I didn't feel all that much of a connection to YL's cast, and so right now I don't see what a YL racer could offer that Mario Kart doesn't have. I don't want to just assume that a Playtonic racer will automatically be as good as DK...

Re: Playtonic: What we Want to Hear About

True, the Switch version is still very feasible from a financial standpoint, fully without any Kickstarter obligations. They won't cancel this one.

Re: Playtonic: What we Want to Hear About

The only reasons for the delay of the Switch version is the previous focus on the Wii U and the short-term start of the development of the Switch version. I'm 100% certain they'd release the game on it day one if the Switch was out for a year already / Nintendo gave them the dev kits much earlier.

This was reconfirmed on Twitter. I don't have the exact source right now (Andy probably commented on this), but they still plan to release both things as part of a free update.

Re: Playtonic: What we Want to Hear About

The wait is really, really ugly for Nintendo fans now. I was initially excited about the Day One release promise, but didn't work out obviously. I intended to not spoil myself too much about the game, but just by watching reviews, I know the theme of every world so far. Not that there's no true reas...

Re: Y-L ... disappointment

:oops: Playtonic, I hope you read this and I hope you pay attention. When I was young, the very first 64 game I got was Banjo-Kazooie. Let me say, I played that game until I got everything in it. I loved it and throughout the years I have been revisiting it occasionally. It is still one of my favor...

Re: My in-depth "review"/analysis of Yooka-Laylee

I think if there is anything to be upset by with Playtonic, it is the fact that they released the game several months too soon. I think they were too afraid of postponing the game again, and figured a "sort of playable" game now was better than an "amazing and perfectly playable"...
