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

I'm not reading through 8 pages of this, but what the heck does this have anything to do with the game (content, gameplay, story etc.) and why does it even matter to people? Who cares who mumbles what? Can't decipher one person from the next when it comes to the mumbling "voices." It has ...

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

I said JonTron's opinions were wholly inappropriate because they are. It all comes down to context; Playtonic clearly find the comments inappropriate, so it makes perfect sense that they do not want to include him in the game. Ohhh... So is that how logic works? Someone says something is a thing, a...

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

It's one thing to use words, but it's another to use actions. I don't think enough people think about this. Said it all, boss. I wish Playtonic would just throw in a generic disclaimer to the effect of: "People of various backgrounds and beliefs were involved with the creation of this game; no...

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

I don't think there is any discussion to be had here; I am so tempted to lock this thread. Playtonic decide who does and doesn't contribute to their game. It was JonTron's privilege to be offered a minor voice mumbling role, and it was by no means guaranteed for him. He lost his chance by saying th...

his somewhat/possibly misinformed statistics on black crime in the US. Crime statistics based on race are publicly available in the US. You can view them in the link below. The black population is 5 times smaller than the white population. So as you can see by the FBI crime statistics blacks do com...

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

How is it an "absolutely disgusting practice" to make a the political decision to say that your company doesn't agree with racism, and then take actions to stand by your values (ie. remove someone from the game for being publicly racist)? HOW was he being racist? State the things he said,...

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

I've read a lot of responses from the people who are "glad" Jon got cut, and think Playtonic was justified for cutting him from the game... and that just signals to me how petty and how toxic political correctness has gotten. Yes, PC culture is still a thing, and it's obviously still a hug...

Re: Ball Roll Suggestions

I was working up a response to BanjoThreeie up there, had it all typed out, but it got deleted through a bad connection on my end when I pressed "preview"... But it's probably for the best, because we're arguing on a fundamentally different planes of perspective here, and it was getting a ...

Yes... I'm really not for this "stunting the player's abilities = challenge" train of thought a lot of people seem to be going with.

Re: Ball Roll Suggestions

The ball roll is suppose to be difficult to control; it's a trade-off for the increase in speed. The intention is to eliminate the problem that every one simply used the Talon Trot all the time in Banjo Kazooie because there's effectively no downside to it. Yooka Laylee is seeking to be much more b...

Re: Ball Roll Suggestions

Here's the impression I'm getting from these posts: 1) Players want one movement mechanic that is superior to all others. Thinking about which mechanic to use is not desirable. 2) If they do think about which they'd prefer, and the game prevents their preferred option, they get upset at having to d...

Re: Toybox Box-Maze Camera Angles

Isometric was the most immersive and least distracting. I would only ask for a way to rotate the camera around. Seems pretty simple to me. CONS of the other two: -Top Down is the least engaging, and ill-fitting for a platformer. -Close-up is claustrophobic and clunky in tight spaces. To take referen...

Re: Let's Talk Swimming

So I noticed a lot of people bring up Ratchet & Clank's swimming controls, which were serviceable if I remember correctly... However, think about all the things you actually DID underwater in those games. Not much... Now, in Banjo-Tooie, and even BK to an extent, there were a great many things y...

Re: Ball Roll Suggestions

For all the people claiming they like the move when scaling the "spiral mountain," despite how imprecise it is, and that it's a cool move that requires "skill" to pull off, let me put it this way to you... Challenge and discipline of skill is one thing. But in the name of a certa...

Re: Toybox feedback & discussion thread (SPOILERS)

Not to add to the noise (I've already made my post addressing all my concerns, and the devs at Playtonic are going to have a hell of time sorting through these), but I just wanted to stress the tightness of Banjo's controls in the first two games. Since this game borrows heavily from those, I feel l...

Re: I have to commend Playtonic in terms of font size...

Nicely done. I agree, though. I was pleased not just with the font size and how it mirrored almost exactly the old Banjo games (just with a nice, crisp, high resolution) but ALSO because the font itself was lifted from the old games as well. I'm not sure if I'm the only one who really disliked the n...

Re: Ball Roll Suggestions

My only real suggestion would be to give it more controllability like Kazooie's talon trot, because the way they use it now, it's not useful in scaling a mountain, say... However, it's good if you just want to go somewhere quickly without much precision. *Precision* is the key word here. I realize i...

Re: Let's Talk Swimming

I'm not sure what it is about these two different swim settings, but I think it may be the one thing to separate the human race as we know it. In the future, people will be divided not by race, religion, or gender. No, we will be divided upon the style of swimming we prefer in Yooka-Laylee. That bei...

Let me start by saying I absolutely love the design of Yooka, he's just so vibrant and unique looking, totally original in execution and is both functional and adorable. Laylee on the other hand is not so visually appealing. I hate hate the pig nose, it makes her look so awkward and out of place ne...
