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

Were there many more memorable characters we didn't know about so far? Or let's say, characters you liked? Yep! There's one character in the final world who looks very different from anybody we have seen so far, and I have a feeling we'll be seeing her again in the future... :D Not sure if this is ...

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

Congrats for that Taylor! You totally deserve it! I have one question about the soundtrack, are there variants of the Hivory Towers theme? Near the books I mean, I hope there are! Loved to hear Gruntilda’s lair changing with the instrument palette of the specific level… I think this was a MUST for ...

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

Great to hear from someone on this forum who's played the game and has the same feel for what was wanted like most of us. This eases any concerns I had. 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 th...

Re: Early reviews

If it makes you feel better, all the negative comments are "old school platforming and collection". Which... IS THE WHOLE POINT! These reviewers are mad because the pipe is a pipe. Lol, I agree 100%. All their negatives (with exception to the camera and possible performance issues) are po...

Re: gameXplain's terrible review

His overall recommendation was "only get the game if you can handle all the technical issues". Most of which don't actually exist at all. The meat of his review was all negative. He made it clear that he was referring to the Xbox One version (which you haven't played, so are unaware if th...

Re: Early reviews

Here are some more reviews: http://www.therwp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=55260 Generally seems to be favored, with some mixed reviews in between due to technical issues or too much nostalgia (which I don't think most of us mind). Be warned, though...some of those reviews have spoilers of unreleased...

Re: gameXplain's terrible review

I have to disagree with you 100%. I think this review was very well done and the video DOES provide examples of what he is talking about (the camera angles, the lag...) As for his personal opinions about empty worlds, slightly different than Banjo etc...you can't fault him for his opinion. I think h...

Re: Early first Spoiler free review is in! 8/10

This voice conversation reminds me of the Lego games, and how in the early days the cut scenes just had mumbles and grunts, but you would still be able to infer what was meant by the facial expressions and actions. Now, Lego games have voices and dialogue. I personally prefer the grunts and mumbles,...

Re: Early first Spoiler free review is in! 8/10

I'm interested in the fact that the reviewer didn't enjoy the mumbling voices or the dialogue. I feel like that's part of what gave the Banjo games their charm. To call Trowzer "horribly designed and incredibly annoying" seems like this reviewer just doesn't get this style of game play. I ...

Re: Reviews: expectations and what attention will you pay them

In the grand scheme of things Yooka Laylee, the reviews honestly mean nothing to me. It's not like I'm going to read them, and if they are negative, just not play the game. I backed it and will get it, so why let it sit there because of possible unfavorable reviews? I'll make up my own mind if I enj...
