Re: Playtonic Forum Closure

A fond farewell to everyone here. Yes, I’d like to say the same to you and everyone else, especially the regulars. I will miss hearing from you all, as I always enjoyed discussing all things Yooka-Laylee with you (even during some of the not-so-positive times) and reading your view points in discus...

Re: Playtonic Forum Closure

Oh that’s so sad, I love coming here to talk about Yooka-Laylee (and other games, especially after Miiverse shut down) with other fans. :cry: But I can understand the reasoning. Thanks for archiving the forums though, I’m glad that it’s not all just going to disappear. :) For anyone who uses Faceboo...

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

I'll definitely be buying that then. If I remember correctly, you weren’t really into amiibo before, so Banjo-Kazooie will be your first amiibo, is that right? If so, what an excellent way to start! :) Anybody who doesnt own Smash and is a Banjo fan needs to buy it as well as the character. I check...

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

It's up to the product to show its differences. While I agree with this, I’d say that sometimes people are stubbornly determined to see only what they want to see (like that saying about seeing things through rose-tinted glasses), so I think it is also up to people to view the game objectively. Som...

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

Of course that's what they meant... But that could still be the polite way to explain what I said :( I suppose, though I thought there was a subtle difference. The vibe I got from your post was that you were summarising it as, “You will be disappointed because the game will not be as good as DKC” (...

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

I honestly find it really interesting how a group of people can read the exact same text, yet come up with such different interpretations. It leads to some good discussions. If I had to sum up that article, my take would be: “Please judge our game on its own merits, rather than comparing it to other...

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

You can play against your amiibo digital character and training with it. They learn from your moves and become very dificult to fight on later levels. Your amiibo will store that data so you can take it to a friends house. But they don't unlock charactes, when you buy the character you automaticall...

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

What exactly are smash amibos for? I’m not sure what they’re for in the actual Smash game because I’ve never played that game. Although I think I heard someone say that they unlock that specific character early instead of you having to unlock them by playing through the game, but I’m not sure if th...

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

As a bonus the 3D overworld parts remind me of a 2D Zelda game and I'm a Zelda fan too. This combination is very interesting, like two games in one. I wonder if the team split to work on them separately. Oh that’d be really interesting to find out. If they do a developer commentary for this game, o...

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

You should give SSBU a try. It's a lot of fun, and buying the Banjo-Kazooie DLC is the best way to show MS that people still care about Banjo-Kazooie. Definitely. Anybody who doesnt own Smash and is a Banjo fan needs to buy it as well as the character. Yeah I thought about it some more after writin...

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

I couldn’t watch the Nintendo Direct live because it was on at 2am my time. So I had to stay off the internet during my work breaks today so I didn’t see any E3 spoilers. Watched the Direct after work and as soon as that puzzle piece bounced across the floor, I was internally screaming “THAT’S A JIG...

We already know trowzer returns because weve seen him. Can't imagine how much help NPCs could offer in a 2d game though? Oh I must have missed him when I watched the trailer. :oops: In that same article I mentioned above, they said this about Trowzer: Plus, it gave Trowzer a new business venture wo...

Re: NEW BANJO GAME AT E3???

https://youtu.be/y6An9hlEk1s That was an interesting watch, thanks for sharing it. The point made about how no other guest character to be added to Smash has had any merchandise made of them is quite convincing that we might be getting not only Banjo & Kazooie in Smash, but also a whole new gam...

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

The one thing I want to stress most to the Devs if they happen to read this IT NEEDS DIFFICULTY Many of the Donkey Kong Country games had very challenging levels. All these retro-style 2D platformers are only good if they capture the spirit of the 8/16 bit eras, DIFFICULT games. Tough, but fair. I ...

Re: honestly im not sure about this new game.

The game make me feels like rayman origins.. Only nice graphic and music but the game is too basic.. you just have to go streight to the end of level.. but there no exploration to find secret in the level... Have a read of this article about the new game, it might alleviate some of your fears. http...
