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

They need to scrap this filter that is taking up so much of their time and resources. Does anybody even give a crap about it? I'm looking forward to it, I'm waiting to do my second ever full play through of the game with the 64-bit tonic switched on. I'm pretty sure I read one of Daley's posts on e...

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

It comes down to: A) Do you want to reassure your Community something is on the way, even if details are vague? OR B) Do you want to stay quiet for an unknown amount of time, leaving your Community to assume nothing is being done? Of course, there's balance to be had but I'll always believe that op...

Re: Anyone else 'forced' to buy the Limited Run Games bundle? Left a bitter taste!

Yeah I wish Limited Run Games did open preorders for their special editions, too. I know some people would whinge that it would mean the items weren't limited anymore, but they'd still be limited enough (being only available from one company for a short period of time), and would mean fans would get...

Re: Delightful Details

In the new developer commentary video for Tribalstack Tropics, Hamish mentions he added the initials T.C. (to celebrate his brother's engagement) under the ramp leading up to the Great Rampo. Is anyone who has found those initials able to describe exactly where they are or post a screenshot? As I tr...

Re: Developer Commentary videos!

What was the reason to not include a game over cutscene where you're getting trapped within the book world you are currently in, or a different cutscene for the hub world if you select 'quit game' in the pause menu like in Donkey Kong 64? They mentioned you and your question in the newest video! :)...

Re: Banjo-Kazooie turns 20 today.

I'm not sure when the ugly plushie is out because the Twitter status I found it posted in said they were planning to open up an online Rare merch shop sometime, and they just said to keep an eye on their social media channels to find out more. The F4F figure does look really nice, but even if I coul...

Re: Banjo-Kazooie turns 20 today.

Oh sorry, I thought since it was available here that surely it would be available for the rest of the world, because Australia doesn't often get things first.

Re: Banjo-Kazooie turns 20 today.

I'll definitely be getting that. The F4F one is way out of my price range. I didn't even know these were a thing, but that looks awesome, I'd like one! (Although what I'd really like is a plush) Did either of you end up getting one? I got mine today - the Totaku figures aren't as nicely painted as ...

Re: Delightful Details

The Dr Quack statue confused me when I first saw it as it's identical to the one underneath Capital B's golden statue, right? So why is there a second one? I thought it might have been some sort of secret, so I was hitting it and all sorts, but nope , nothing. Oh I didn't even think to try hitting ...

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

Thanks for pointing this out, I had no idea. So Playtonic did deliver what they promised. Too bad all those angry youtube commenters don't know about this. Yeah, once the tonic is made available to fans I'd say they've done exactly what they promised regarding the 64 shader part of the stretch goal...

I know it's not strictly birthday related (unless you count it as late 20 year anniversary merch?), but I didn't want to create a new topic just for this - is anyone else excited for the Banjo-Kazooie Totaku figurine? https://www.mytotaku.com/Files/FigureImages/28_Banjo-Kazooie-20181015131457039.png...

The initials of the heading spell "TWIT". Also the lack of a possessive apostrophe in "Trowzers" makes it feel even more authentic that he's a dodgy salesman who can't even get the grammar in his advertising sign right. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Dqb11a6UwAENzgo.jpg:large Anyone...

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

I think the tonic looks awesome and agree with those saying that it would be cool if we could use this Tonic with another one since it's just cosmetic. Same could be said about the pants tonic too. Or if we could use both cosmetic tonics at once, the 64 bit shading and Yooka wearing pants. That'd r...
