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

Makes sense. To expect a spiritual successor would mean thinking less of it if it does things differently, no matter how good it does them. "It's a good game but not a good DKC game" and all that. I didn't think of DKC when I first saw the trailer actually, it seemed to have a slower pace ...

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

I'm more of a DKC fan than a BK fan, and in general of 2D platformets, so this game actually has me more exited than the original YL (especially since I don't have the means to play DKC Tropical Freeze so far). The game still needs and deserves to be judged on its own terms (maybe it's the music but...

Re: NEW BANJO GAME AT E3???

I mean what would they gain from allowing their competition to use their characters if it isn't to promote a new game? I'm pretty sure all their re-releases of BK games was years ago.

Btw who else would love to see the corpse of the Lord of Games lying around or something like that?

New Super Lucky's Tale - 3D platformer visits Nintendo

Everybody is so understandably shocked by Banjo & Kazooie making it to Smash Bros that they may have missed the OTHER collaboration between Microsoft and Nintendo that also involves a cartoony character from a 3D Platformer: https://sickr.files.wordpress.com/2019/06/new_super_luckys_tale.png?w=7...

Re: YL & The Impossible Lair - Please remember to make it challenging

I hope there is at least one level that is as shockingly hard the first time as the minecart level from the original Donkey Kong Country.

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

Also gotta love how this is such a big deal that the Kongs and K. Rool put aside their differences to celebrate: https://66.media.tumblr.com/5577244bf3bb1d30642086e48e04ee24/tumblr_psy50t6o8W1y04ohwo1_540.gif How would you people have felt if it was the redesign from Nuts & Bolts and that sega r...

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

YESS!!! :!:
I wanted a 2D plattformer from Playtonic since day one but it still took me by surprise!
Looks like a relaxing playformer, that should be interesting.

Re: A story about why BK is my favorite game

Seriously, is the first Donkey Kong Country the only platformer where the water levels are relaxing instead heart-skipping stressful? It's not just the music, one feels in control the whole time and doesn't need to replendish air at any point. I even have a shark from those levels as avatar.

Re: A story about why BK is my favorite game

Nice story! Glad to know you beat the challange eventually.
I wonder, though, didn't the sharks from Treasure Trove Cove and Rusty Bucket Bay scare you more than good ol' Clanker? Because they sure terrified me.

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

I think the 64-bit Tonic is cool and all, but (in your opinion) how much (in percentages) does it look like a real N64 game? I'd say 20% at most. This feature is 64-bit the same way Shovel Knight is 8-bit: it technically isn't if one stops to analize it, but it feels the part while being made for m...

For the record, .

There has even been an updated trailer about their inclusion with an intro and some dialogue at the end (where they reference Shovel Knight):

Re: Videogames Crowdfunding General

One of the most succesful kickstarters right now seems to be OMNO , "an atmospheric exploration and puzzle adventure". It made more than twice its initial goal and there are only four days remaining as of this post. https://ksr-ugc.imgix.net/assets/022/951/411/482af374317e23b0f43b83ae3eda1...

Re: Spiritual Successor To Conker's Bad Fur Day

Amazing news! And it's rather fitting that he plans to make it a "less literal" successor than YL.

Gotta say, I wasn't aware of that Rusty Pup game, it look very interesting. I hope this gives it more atention but I want to play it regardless of wether it gives us a Conket successor or not.
