Have they brought on any recently?

Reviews: expectations and what attention will you pay them

With the reviews coming next week, I've been deliberating internally as to if I'll check the reviews or not. While I have a healthy amount of personal confidence in this game, it's in many ways deliberately retro and in a genre dominated by Nintendos polished, skillful AAA platformers. I do wonder i...

Re: Poll for Switch Backers (Unofficial)

Since we're discussing Switch performance: per nintendolife, Snake Pass runs at 30fps and "upscale 720p"

I'm sure the David Wise soundtrack sounds just as good as on the PS4 or Xbox One

Totally valid! I googled Yooka Laylee today, and to my disappointment got politics! Quite burnt out on these issues myself, to be honest.

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

Playtonic has every right to decide what sort of values they stand for, with their work. I support them in this. It is unfortunate that we are making judgements about the character of various humans, based off of social/political viewpoints. We don't live in a world of heros and villains, beliefs ma...

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

This sense of "us and them," fear of people whom we perceive as not like us is certainly a source of suffering in the world. Its also very common and primordial tendency that has been existed since our nomadic prehistoric days. Not sure I'd label him as especially racist. But those stateme...

Re: Poll for Switch Backers (Unofficial)

60fps without a question. Pretty essential for a 3D platformer, actually. Isn't Breath of the Wild 900p on the TV? Can the Switch even handle 1080p? Don't get me wrong, I looooooooooooove my Switch and I'm not resolution-whining. I just didn't know it could do 1080. The Wii U could handle 1080p 30fp...

Re: David Wise and Koji Kondo

Having simmered a great deal on the topic of best videogame soundtrack, I've found it boils down to one essential question: Donkey Kong Country 2 or Ocarina of Time. So of course I agree with your making this comparison. I wish more would do the same. However, while I may ultimately consider DKC 2 m...

Re: When do you guys think the Nintendo Switch version will release?

It seems both devs were able to get their game running in around a week. We know Yooka is running also, as we've seen Switch footage. There are other variables to consider than the reletively meager amount of info offered by those two articles. Obviously Snake Pass isn't releasing until the end of t...

Re: Worlds real order of Levels 3,4 and 5

I mean, its been long speculated that the Swamp level would be World 3. And final worlds are typically kept more under wraps than the Swamp level has been To me Armed and Dangerous doesn't *necessarily* refer to the creatures in the Swamp artwork but it's obviously their style of humor and just &quo...

Re: New soundtrack snippets!

Well, not sure I can justifiably listen to all these previews, but clicked to the end of each one and they all have "endings" which is ludicrous great. I and many of you are tying to avoid spoilers, but I cannot help but speculate. Speculation The boss theme list starts with Uphill Battle,...

Re: 3D Platforming Game: Snake Pass

David Wise... ahhhh!! The music clips are so lush and bright; they resonate on on an emotional level, so happy sounding ... adding "soul" to the project, as Reuckk puts it.

I am so buying this for the Switch.

Still hoping rumors of Mr. Wise's Nintendo project end up true.

Re: Difficulty level in Yooka-Laylee

Wow, you beat DKC: TF hard mode, TC? :P I'm more concerned with there being varying types of difficulty. As others have alluded to, challenges may include: puzzles, platforming segments, mini games, combat based, simple fetch quests, and more. Players should be able to skip what hey don't like and a...

Re: Playtonic forgot about the fine-tune

The sound effects are certainly quirky. I know Kazooie made that repetive sound when you ran with her, as well but most people ultimately loved that games sound design. It's okay to have different opinions. For me, and this is subjective, YL just sounds good in my ears. Maybe the casino world didn't...
