Re: Early first Spoiler free review is in! 8/10

Both reviewers criticise points that make it a great game. Still they give it an 8/9. It's almost as if they're afraid to admit they're actually really loving those mechanics but they can't justify those kind of things being modern age reviewers XD Next review: No romancing options for characters, N...

Re: POLL: Playtonic Kart Racer + Online Multiplayer

The question on my mind is whether a Playtonic kart racer will be profitable. Mario Kart seems a bit untouchable; I cannot think of any other kart racer in recent years that can compete with it in terms of popularity. I don't think anything can surpass Yooka-Laylee's hype and interest in the genera...

I think the embargo lifts at 6pm BST; or, 9 hours from the time I post this. There is also a visual content embargo in place until the 10th of April. A visual content embargo to the 10th april ?

Can't tell. Will differ perhaps? It's up to them. But they are able to spoil things as of today!

Re: Almost guys... In a few hours we will know if the game will be recieved well!

Also keep in mind that if somebody gives it a bad review: who cares. Like sure it would be cool if everybody was into this pretty niche genre we're into, but flipping out and name-calling because it isn't somebody's jam just makes you look like a real dink. The more you know. Absolutely! Reviews te...

(POTENTIAL SPOILER HERE)?? Also, while watching the recent EGX footage, it was revealed that it takes one Pagie to enter the first world, only three to enter the second, and only FIVE to expand the second. FIVE. At that rate, it seems that not many Pagies will really be required to even complete th...

Almost guys... In a few hours we will know if the game will be recieved well!

I'm so excited! But kinda scared as well. In a few hours we will know how most critics took the game to heart. That will be the first step towards determinating Playtonic's debut game's fate. I have high hopes. We already got an 8 and a 9 But we also have these messages from Jim Sterling (think twic...

Re: The Yooka Laylee Rap!

I thought this scene was interesting. Which of these are significant in-game collectables, and what do they do? http://oi64.tinypic.com/35i3tzp.jpg Ha, I noticed that as well. My eye fell on the gaint topaz like gemstone. That definitely seems like an eleborate collectable (there are 2) than ofcour...

Re: POLL: Playtonic Kart Racer + Online Multiplayer

Playtonic could make what Nintendo won't
The mission mode from Mario Kart DS was awesome. I think PT should give something like that a chance. With awesome bosses ofcourse!

Re: Early first Spoiler free review is in! 8/10

"The characters are largely annoying and the writing and delivery is almost universally bad." I actually love the characters. As for the writing, I think it's intentionally cheesy, which makes it funny -- everybody in Britain groans at a pun, but we still love them. If this reviewer gave ...

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

I hate to give this thread some life, but I found out that Manveer Heir, the openly racist guy that worked at Bioware, wasn't fired and instead left the company. https://imgoat.com/uploads/9f0f895fb9/7490.png So I guess I'm a little more upset about Jon's work being removed now.

Re: Replaying Rare.

Mad Monster Mansion 38:40

A lot of walking back and forth, imo they totally missed a secret opportunity for the pumpkin here by walking all across the vines.

Funny little level, seeing some fillers here (rooms) probably my least favorite level :p

I think Tooie's graphics are incredible to this day (I even think Kazooie looks brilliant), but comparing the Tooie enemy with the Corplet Punisher , it's clear which one is aesthetically more pleasing. I think both look awesome but I really have a soft spot for blocky N64 graphics! ;) I'm excited ...
