Re: Physical Nintendo Switch release by Limited Run Games!

Way more than a month, I think... It's been over 2 months since they said soon. Im beginning to feel a very strong disliking (i won't say hate yet) towards playtonics use of the word soon. It's pretty much a lie. Agree. Their wording in the latest update definitely suggested that there’s “several n...

Re: Lessons Playtonic shouldn't learn from Yooka Laylee

I don't want Playtonic to learn hand-holding the player. I saw someone say that there should be marks on a map pointing towards where collectibles are - um, no thanks! :? What's the point of even playing an adventure collectathon if they're not even going to adventure and find things themselves?!? ...

Re: Funding the Next Game

Didn't know that it was bigger than Bayonetta, thanks for the info! Then they might be more comparable than I thought. Or at least, that Playtonic will have similar capacities at one point. I'm really wondering what's going on at their HQ...

Re: Funding the Next Game

According to VGchartz it sold 300k on Xbone and PS4 combined. I think if you add digital copies and Steam/Switch versions that's enough. Wonderful 101 (truly spectacular game) sold fewer copies and even that company keeps its head above water. Okay that doesn't sound too bad. But tbh, Platinum Game...

Re: Lessons Playtonic shouldn't learn from Yooka Laylee

That's a tough one, since Yooka has flaws and goodness in similar departments (for example the world layout / size: In world 2: way too big & empty, in world 5 pretty much perfect). Also, they should keep voice mumbling in my opinion, but work on the actual sounds. The pagie count is also good, ...

Re: E3 2018

I don't really think they'll travel to E3 and showcase stuff at the booths. But their current publisher Team17 will be there, so who knows: https://www.e3expo.com/participating-companies

Still, I guess they'll just send out a big update and trailer(s) by themselves.

Re: Is the DLC still happening?

When theres nothing to say other than complaining about PTG not communicating, nobody gains something from this. We know since the longest time that they're getting really quiet when working, so no, I don't see the contribution of complaining about this, other than staying in a repetitive loop. And ...

Re: DLC information question

Anything happening regarding this DLC, Playtonic? Yes something is happening, last time they mentioned the dlc ("extra content") was April 11. Just because they're not showing a trailer or screenshots doesn't mean they're not working on it every day. Yes, hands up, we’ve been a bit quiet ...

Re: Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy

It was one of the games that I absolutely loved on the original PlayStation. With Spyro, they really were the best platformers on that system and I’ll absolutely get the Switch port (since I never got a PS after that). Oh and this version might have an advantage: Loading times. Check out the Digital...

Re: Funding the Next Game

Indie games like YL don’t need to sell a lot to make a profit. Hellblade, for example, broke even at only 500,000K copies, which would be considered low by AAA standards. I asked Andy Robinson how well it was doing for Playtonic a while back, and this was his response: https://www.twitter.com/AndyP...

Re: Lessons Playtonic might learn from Yooka-Laylee...

Yep ShanPen pretty much nailed what went wrong with Yooka. Playtonic didn't explore the level themes enough (or I wouldn't say even barely), they didn't attach the pagies to little stories that would happen within the world. (Sounds like a missed opportunity when you consider that almost everything ...

Is it bad that I feel that these characters / character-designs are more lively than the ones in Yooka-Laylee? It looks like this guy really dug into the level themes when coming up with characters.

Re: Playtonic's Next Move

By the way: When I think about it, I wish them to be done with Yooka soon and move on to the next project. They should still develop DLC, that I agree with, but they should save their funds and not do the orchestral score, it doesn't make too much sense to patch this back in. It would be fine, yes, ...

Re: Playtonic's Next Move

You’re probably right. That might be a good way to avoid most comparisons and start fresh. Maybe it’s just the Banjo fan in me that wants a critically acclaimed big 3D platformer right away. It’ll certainly bring some advantages if they do it later, too. Like having a bigger company and more capaci...
