Re: MAKE SURE PLAYTONIC GAMES RUN AT 1080P@60FPS

Of course it is and I would as well. But in the platforming genre, it is one of the crucial things to have a character that controls great. And having super-smooth 60fps just contributes to that feeling of absolute control, while you wouldn't need to have 1080p for any gameplay-related reason.

Re: MAKE SURE PLAYTONIC GAMES RUN AT 1080P@60FPS

Well , there's a thread concerning 60fps . I guess its more likely (and important) to have 60fps as the higher priority. Cartoony games still look great at 720p, just look at Super Mario 3D World. Of course, if they want to optimize it further (for consoles like the PS4 or Xbox One), they'd need mo...

Nice thinking! I would love such a level!

Re: Clive N' Wrench needs help, FAST!

Yeah, I wasn't that convinced by the project, either. While its nice to see a lot of people trying to revive the genre, there was something about this project that I didn't like. Maybe its the characters, an obvious B-K rip-off? Or the art style? I don't know.

Re: JonTron in Project Ukelele

Wat.

I think JonTron spoke for many RareWARE fans in his video. Plus he's exaggerating partly because he's doing some kind of comedy, after all.

Re: JonTron in Project Ukelele

This thread draws in too many naysayers. I'd guess that they'll slip in his voice in some simple character while nobody notices & knows, until further research or analysis. So no big deal. This is exact the most unnecessary topic to get vocal about, seriously. First world problems, or should I s...

Re: JonTron in Project Ukelele

He hasn't been confirmed as such, but Playtonic and Jon did have a brief Twitter exchange about the topic. Nothing's set in stone. I mean, I wouldn't be actively opposed to it. I just thing that Playtonic should hire real Voice Actors. Unless he has a super bit-part or something. None of the classi...

Re: Wii U GamePad

I'd be fine with off-tv play & moving HUD symbols to the gamepad. But please, NO MAPS! And not only not on the gamepad, but nowhere! Maybe there should be a separate thread for this. A map will somehow destroy the exploration aspect of the game. You should discover the worlds with your very eyes...

Re: 60 fps

Wii U will handle it just fine - just look at how amazing all the cartoony games look! In my opinion, 60fps is MUCH more important than 1080p. Seriously. You won't see that much of a difference in such a game, while a smooth gameplay is a must & most essential in a platformer.

Re: Nintendo Fans, Lets Show Them Our Nostalgia! WiiU/3DS+Am

I'm all in for Wii U. ...but considering the 3DS, I wouldn't set it a priority. I'll just pasting my thoughts from another thread: The 3DS is half as powerful as a Wii (Wii graphics with a resolution of 240p, instead of 480p) - they would need to do A LOT of work by stripping down the graphics and e...

Re: Keep a tight rein on fan input

I also agree. But I want to talk about the definition of "fan input". Because most things I write about (if not all) just put several aspects into words that I LOVED about the B-K/B-T games. Since it's a long time since they were developed, I don't see anything bad in it when Playtonic jus...

You have to consider that its their first game & a beta. And I think its really impressive what the reached so far. Of course they are not comparable to industry veterans, but they already put so much though and love in this game. I wouldn't write them of so quickly. Honestly, as a player, I do...

Voice Mumbling

Let's talk voice mumbling! I always loved these simple, silly sounds that gave the characters their personality with minimal effort. But (and I think this has to be said) in Nuts & Bolts, the developers changed the mumbling in a way that I didn't like at all. Just compare Banjo Tooie's intro: ht...

Re: Will these characters be able to transform??

Yes, transformations were a big & funny part of the Banjo games. I couldn't really imagine if they were absent in this one. Besides being always a funny surprise to the player, they also add more variation to the gameplay! But since I want to be surprised, I wouldn't really be able to think of s...

Re: Quirky Characters?

One character HAS to be more offensive and sarcastic. The balance in the Banjo games was just right! To be honest, I liked it the way it was and wouldn't invert the personalities. I think its best when you mainly play the good-natured, nice (but maybe slightly dumb) character and have his sidekick t...
