Re: I've Played Yooka-Laylee: My Thoughts (Spoiler-free)

Just for comparison's sake. What's are your computer/laptop's specs? I'll be honest, I barely know a thing about computers, so forgive me if I've missed something. The PC I'm using is my brother's old one, which is why it sat in a loft for two years before I took it off his hands. I had a look at m...

Re: I've Played Yooka-Laylee: My Thoughts (Spoiler-free)

Did the worlds feel empty to you, as some reviewers claim (more empty than the worlds in BK/BT)? And did you have any performace issues or glitches happening? Not at all. There is so much to do in the worlds and it's spaced out appropriately. If you've completed most of the world, I guess you might...

Re: I've Played Yooka-Laylee: My Thoughts (Spoiler-free)

I guess it's also worth mentioning that because you are able to either unlock a new world, or expand an existing one first, people will experience the game differently. I decided to try and do as much as I could in an unexpanded world before progressing to the next world; after world five, I went ba...

Re: I've Played Yooka-Laylee: My Thoughts (Spoiler-free)

As far as the camera is concerned, do the changes affect gameplay at all? For example in one video it showed an area of Tribalstack Tropics with the blocks that blow you off, and as you traverse the structure, the camera changes view. Does this happen often and does it really get in the way of plat...

Re: I've Played Yooka-Laylee: My Thoughts (Spoiler-free)

Random question, Taylor, but are there many "inside-areas" like the Napper shell (or the turtle and several npc homes) like in Banjo-Kazooie? Yep, plenty! I suspect you may be asking because Trowzer and Dr Puzz do not have 'houses', but I have found that this is actually a blessing in dis...

Re: I've Played Yooka-Laylee: My Thoughts (Spoiler-free)

My question for you is how long is the game compared to Kazooie and Tooie? Yes I know you took about 40 hours to 100% the game, but how long does it take you to normally 100% kazooie and Tooie if you didnt already know the game like the back of your hand? I think this would give us the best idea of...

Re: I've Played Yooka-Laylee: My Thoughts (Spoiler-free)

40 hours sounds like a nice amount of playtime to me. Out of curiosity, how would you describe your play style with regards to the time you completed it in? Did you play with the intent of finishing it in as timely of a fashion as you could for review purposes, or did you play at a more casual pace...

Re: I've Played Yooka-Laylee: My Thoughts (Spoiler-free)

How many ideas from the forum were implemented in Yooka-Laylee? It's hard to call, really. There were definitely ideas discussed on these forums that do actually appear in the game, but whether that is by chance is anyone's guess. Let's be honest -- we've had many discussions on here containing bot...

I've Played Yooka-Laylee: My Thoughts (Spoiler-free)

I was fortunate enough to get my hands on Yooka-Laylee; I've collected everything, explored all the worlds and played through to the final battle. My total playtime is 40 hours. I loved it. http://cdn.edgecast.steamstatic.com/steam/apps/360830/header.jpg?t=1490865700 Impression: Let me first say th...

Re: Early reviews

If you like Banjo, you will most certainly like Yooka. If you're not a fan of oldschool platformers, you may be more inclined to give a bad review. I think the majority of this forum will love the game -- don't pay any negative reviews too much mind. Banjo's camera was also reviewed poorly back in t...

Re: POLL: Playtonic Kart Racer + Online Multiplayer

The question on my mind is whether a Playtonic kart racer will be profitable. Mario Kart seems a bit untouchable; I cannot think of any other kart racer in recent years that can compete with it in terms of popularity. I don't think anything can surpass Yooka-Laylee's hype and interest in the general...

Re: POLL: Playtonic Kart Racer + Online Multiplayer

unlike YL I would hope that they paid more attention to modern design trends with racing games when it came to handling and controls. I agree. By all means, please experiment beyond a typical Mario Kart clone to include interesting and creative elements, such as boss battles and a story mode, but s...

Re: Almost guys... In a few hours we will know if the game will be recieved well!

I think the embargo lifts at 6pm BST; or, 9 hours from the time I post this. There is also a visual content embargo in place until the 10th of April.

I thought this scene was interesting. Which of these are significant in-game collectables, and what do they do?

Re: POLL: Playtonic Kart Racer + Online Multiplayer

My ideal kart racing game would include both online and local multiplayer, and the option of racing against computer controlled players as well. Mine too. I also think it would be great to expand the online functionality to allow friends to join a group and play together against the rest of the wor...

Re: POLL: Playtonic Kart Racer + Online Multiplayer

Kart Racer: Undoubtedly an exciting idea. Part of me would like to see another game to develop the cast, settings, and story a bit more. It was cool how Diddy Kong Racing preceded Banjo, Conker, and Star Fox Adventures, but I think the characters and environments lacked the strong sense of personal...

POLL: Playtonic Kart Racer + Online Multiplayer

Gavin Price on the possibility of making a kart racer (during this interview ): We hear that quite a bit. When we first set up Playtonic, I thought a karting game might actually be the first game we do, but let's wait and see. And he's right -- a kart racer is by far the most requested future game ...
