Re: Yooka-Laylee: General Discussion Thread

I just noticed the totals screen has different icons depending on what world you're in. That's a really nice touch.

Re: Yooka-Laylee: Out Now!

I really disagree on the "too open" point. Banjo Kazooie AND Tooie worlds were totally open. You walk in, then you can go anywhere. Sometimes there's light funneling (most levels slapped a door or path right in your vision to "suggest" a path) but they all plopped you in and let ...

Re: Playtonic's next project

It'll be interesting to see if they use the same base they've built up on top of Unity, or go a new direction for engine/style/models/etc.

Re: Quills.. Where are you...

Yeah the final Tribalstacks quill is really trolly. I'm actually surprised they did that. I have to imagine that quill will become a bit infamous.

Re: Is 5 Worlds Enough?

Gamers are lazy these days. When I used to see people say that I thought it couldn't really be the case, someone must just be shouting "back in my day", but it's the truth. They want giant gold arrows pointing towards waypoints and they want everything handed to them by the game. I saw a r...

Or that's where they're going to slot in the start of the DLC.

Re: Lego Sets

Ugh what a huge missed opportunity. I had tons of LEGO as a kid and never made a Banjo Kazooie anything.

... I keep wanting to get into LEGO again but man is it expensive and MAN do I have too many hobbies already.

Re: Is 5 Worlds Enough?

I feel like the levels are big enough to justify their count. Though I wouldn't say no to a 6-8 world Twoka-Laylee.

Re: Cheating/breaking the game to skip segments...

Actually Banjo Tooie has something almost exactly like that. Any% DCW. It just becomes a new category.

Any% and then Any% No DCW. So I could imagine YL having 100% / Any% / Any% No OOB. Luigi's Mansion has those exact categories.

Edit: YL Any% category is already down to 52 minutes.

Re: Yooka-Laylee: Out Now!

Mine says Shipped and still hasn't come. Pretty poor decision to ship without tracking.

Now that we've had the game for a day is it time to start speculating on Twoka-Laylee?

Re: Cheating/breaking the game to skip segments...

Generally I'd agree fixing bugs would be good but, using the area in front of Hivery Towers for example, if a bug takes way more effort than the intended path (to a beginner) I'd say leave it in. If the above is the example I think it is at least. I tried about ten times to run up the railing next t...

Wow! Raymond Davidson! I follow the IFPA and PAPA and I've seen you play quite a few times :D Crazy how the recent PAPA 20 turned out huh? I've actually bought a second machine since that post, a Metallica Pro from Pinball Refinery. I went with the Pro because I've heard too many horror stories abou...

Re: Thank you Playtonic

Mmmm I felt like a new thread was warranted for post-release where we actually have info now. Plus lumping this back with the old thread really underlines my point about there being more negatives visible than positives :/ one praise thread, twenty threads about the same bugs.

The "Thank You Playtonic" Thread

There's a lot of research about how a negative statement weighs heavier in people's minds than a single positive statement, how upset customers are far more likely to be vocal than happy customers are, etc. etc. blah, blah. Anyway it adds up to a few stinkers being the only voices heard. I wanted to...

Re: Yooka-Laylee: General Discussion Thread

I'll just say there was a LOT of very fishy business with the reviews. Jim just gave a totally unheard of game a 10/10 and in his review TALKS ABOUT FLAWS THE GAME HAS. I think several big ticket reviewers identified an opportunity to profit from trash canning the game and threw Playtonic in front o...
