Re: WHY can't Playtonic Games explain why they can't announce a Switch date?

PG should just hire you guys to take over the company because you seem to know how everything is done, and would be able to do it all better. Yep. That's what you all are saying. lol, this is a joke Clearly there are business logistics that aren't so cut and dry. Not to mention a completely differen...

Re: About "collecting Pagie" animation

I actually loved the animation on BK, especially since it had a nice little tune to go along with it. My favorite was the triumphant music when you'd collected all the jiggies in the world. Felt so satisfying. I hope there's some sort of jingle at least, and not just an option to dance. Need the sou...

Re: WHY can't Playtonic Games explain why they can't announce a Switch date?

Well, that is obvious: The deadline is because the game is launching soon and sorting out shipping and ordering on the physical copies up for grabs and even the distribution of download codes, takes a lot of time. Knowing who is getting what is an important part of that distribution process, and pe...

Re: WHY can't Playtonic Games explain why they can't announce a Switch date?

The fact that some are alleging that PG is intentionally trying to scam some backers, or that they are a failed developer, is really, really disgusting. Clearly they don't yet know when the Switch version can be released. I hardly see any evidence of intentional scamming or a bait and switch. It's r...

Re: *SPOILERS* The argument FOR Capital Cashino

I think a lot of the concern about "emptiness" is people mis-remembering what BK and BT were actually like. Particularly BT. I'm not gonna copy/paste but here's the link: http://forums.playtonicgames.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=5024#p30351 Short version: BT had a ton of emptiness, the con...

I'm not in love with the transformation, mainly because I just don't see how it fits in with the world. But I'm sure it'll be fun to play as.

Re: New video from Capital Casino... Bugs remain?

I'm honestly not sure how I feel about this video. The game play and exploration aspect seems good, but this world may be my least favorite. It just seems way too big with way too little going on. It seems vastly empty. Thought there would be more enemies around throughout, but it seems they are jus...

Re: PSA: Backerkit Surveys have been Reopened

Completed my survey 8-) Originally pledged for WiiU and decided to change it to an Xbox One version. Can't wait until April 11th! Thank you Playtonic for all you do! Even through the minor difficulties, just hope the team knows they are appreciated and that this game is highly anticipated! Going to ...

Re: Yooka-Laylee Soundtrack Sneak-peak?

Has anyone listened to all of these? The Temple Theme is beautiful. It reminds me of the Atlantis section of Jolly Roger's Lagoon. So peaceful and soothing. Really love the Hivory Towers theme, too. I was expecting to hear some random Capital B jumble pop up, similar to the way Gruntilda teased you ...

Re: Yooka-Laylee Multiplayer REVEAL TRAILER

Don't know how a multiplayer reveal trailer turned into more switch whining... But to keep this topic on track, I enjoyed what I saw. Interesting to see the game themes and what they could be based off of. Here's a quick breakdown: 1. Minecart race seems clearly based off of Tribalstack Tropics. 2. ...

Re: Making the Switch

Out of curiosity, if WiiU wasn't an original possibility, do you think the kickstarter would have been as successful? I don't think so. It was people who played the classic Rare games of the 90s that hyped up the idea of those types of games coming back. And those people played on Nintendo consoles...

Re: Making the Switch

This. It's a huge let down for indies to have no successful big titles so far on kickstarters and that will make it even harder for future kickstarters to generate money - a record setting kickstarter failed to deliver. You'd think a bunch of vets would have been able to lead by example. Out of cur...

Re: Making the Switch

Serious question: is 4 months really not enough time to save up $200 for a console? A console that you can still get use out of? I'm legitimately perplexed by all the whining over this. It's not like any one person is specifically banned from ever playing this game. If there's a will, there's a way...

Re: Making the Switch

So again, WHY did I back this?? To contribute to a team that wanted to make a game similar to BK/BT for the fans of those games? I didn't know the whole purpose of backing a game is to be rewarded with goodies (even though perks were attached). I thought the purpose was to help fund a game that lon...

Re: Making the Switch

+ The fact that the Switch game release will probably be later than the other releases makes this completely terrible (if that was not the case then they would've announced it immediately I think). As a big fan I backed this game -minute 1- and I couldn't wait for the release. I read every article,...

Of all the news and info they just released, this is the only thing that upsets me :( March is the longest month to get through and now it'll be even longer. Blaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

But I will work through this and hopefully get a Switch in the meantime and switch to Switch!

Re: A Reminder About the Delay

It's pretty unfortunate for them that it releases at the same time as the Switch, especially if Mario is a launch game. Well we have a month for Switch (March) and a Quarter for YL (Q1). While March is indeed in Q1, so is January and February. We could get YL much sooner than Switch is released. I'...
