Re: Playtonic Don't Want Impossible Lair Compared to DKC

Your summary pretty much nails what I think they're trying to say.

Re: Playtonic Don't Want Impossible Lair Compared to DKC

But if it was a carbon copy it would be identical in its mechanics. Tropical Freeze doesn't let you play the final level from the very start of the game and it doesn't have a Zelda style overworld with puzzles, as mentioned in the article. The overworld in Tropical Freeze is closer in resemblance to...

Re: Playtonic Don't Want Impossible Lair Compared to DKC

Good article. It was exciting to read that one little bit of info from this article about how Gavin Price said that the game is about to enter certification. That sounds like they're basically done and just need to get bugs fixed and approval from the various console makers. Since they're having phy...

Re: Playtonic Games announces Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair

It was already a foregone conclusion that I'll buy this as soon as it comes out, but now that I've seen the gameplay demo I'm actually excited to play it! The trailer was nice an all, but this demo did a much better job of showing the game off. That's to be expected I suppose. I only wish I could pr...

Re: Banjo-Kazooie is in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate!

They even made them resemble the Hi-Res models from the N64 era and not the N&B style! That makes me so happy!

Re: Playtonic Games announces Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair

I'm pleasantly surprised to see that it is both a 2D platformer AND a Yooka Laylee game. An excellent combination, in my opinion. It's also good to hear that this will not be considered to be taking the spot of a direct sequel to Yooka Laylee, so that there is still room for a 2nd 3D platformer star...

Re: 64-bit Tonic available for PC and Switch!

Wow, that was a really good comparison, and one I never thought much about before. Now I'm really curious as to what Yooka Laylee with the 64 bit tonic enabled would look like if it's played on an old fashioned TV. I think I might still have a small one somewhere. Guess I'll have to find some kind o...

Re: Switch Crackle Sound Problem

Have you turned off the Switch for a while and then played some more to see if the issue persists? I haven't played Yooka Laylee on the Switch yet, but I think I had a very similar sound issue one time when I was playing the new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It was a subtle yet completely noticeable c...

Saving/Loading Issue (PC)

Has anyone recently been having problems in Yooka Laylee with either Saving and Quitting, transitioning through doorway loading zones which contain an autosave, or autosaves in general? Yesterday I loaded up the game again to try and find the initials under the ramp in the first level which were dis...

Re: Developer Commentary videos!

How far into this levels development and the games development in general was Shovel Knight added into this level? Did the mission you do for Shovel Knight in this level already exist in some form before he was added in, or was it all added in after he was?

Re: Physical Yooka-Laylee Switch at "Best Buy"

Well this all seems perfectly reasonable to me. An extra chance for people to get a copy, I say. Very thoughtful of them to go out of their way to explain everything in such lengthy detail. It is, however, terrible to hear they're getting threats of violence over this. That's just completely insane....

Re: Yooka-Laylee: 64-Bit Tonic coming soon!

Ah, very good. The Glitterglaze Glacier footage from the trailer definitely reminds me of old N64 style graphics. I wonder if Playtonic would consider allowing the cosmetic tonics to be enabled at the same time as 1 non-cosmetic tonic. It would be fun to try a playthrough with the 64 bit tonic AND t...

Re: Spin-off graphic novel revealed!

It's also why I was infuriated by the Triforce statue mess earlier this year that can only have dampened Yooka fans willingness to trust other companies like mine.

Re: Spin-off graphic novel revealed!

Given the apparent size of the world from the image on the Kickstarter, I'd be surprised if it was added as DLC. It looks big enough to be an entire expansion if that was the case. It would probably be more realistic for it to be used in a sequel. I wouldn't mind either case, though. ;) The graphic ...
