Vehicles? I hope not. (spoilers)

Postby Jinjo » Tue Feb 07, 2017 1:05 am

So I just watched the Capital Cashino 15 minute gameplay, and aside from looking bland I noticed that YL transformed into an attack helicopter. Also we can see that YL can transform into a snow tractor in the ice level.

Does YL transform into a vehicle for most of the levels?.

So ok it was kinda funny that they transfomed into a snow tractor for the ice level, but I assumed it was a 1/50 troll (a homage to both the vehicles in nuts and bolts and the washing machine transformation from banjo kazooie).

But I really hope they haven't taken the kinda funny but not that funny joke too far and made YL be transforming into vehicles, because to be honest that would not be funny, it would be more turning the game into something people didn't want.

What do you guys think? You want vehicles in YL? Do you think both the snow tractor and the attack helicopter are just Playtonic trolling us and maybe there are better transformations?

Remember the transformation in Tribalstack Tropics?

I doubt every transformation will be vehicles. Whatever suits the type of level, I suppose.

Yes Wyvern I remember seeing the plant transformation. This is why I originally thought the snow tractor was just a joke, but seeing the attack helicopter as well raises some doubt.

I'm hoping for a laundry machine of some type.
Make the forum great again.

Can someone explain to me why having too many vehicle transformations in Yooka-Laylee is bad?

If the transformation fits the world, then said transformation is an excellent transformation.

Banjo had vehicle transformations before Yooka and Nuts & Bolts so I honestly don't see what the fuss is about, seriously. Don't nit-pick over such trivial things. :/

so, are you just assuming there's gonna be a lot more vehicle transformations based on the small handful that's been revealed? that's kinda like counting your chickens before they hatch.

i don't think you have anything to worry about. wait until more transformations are revealed, because so far there's only two vehicle transformations, just like tooie.

A) vehicles aren't a bad thing. See Tooie.
B) something reminding you of nuts and bolts is also not a bad thing. Don't forget who made that game.
C) we don't know the rest of the transformations (AND I HOPE IT STAYS THAT WAY)

As long as Yooka doesn't spend 90% of the game being something other than promised like Nuts and Bolts was. Yooka is a pure 3D platformer. Nuts and Bolts was... anything BUT a platformer. Big difference.
Transformations, whether they resemble vehicles, animals, objects or whatever simply add some variety to the gameplay, they are not taking anything away from what is a 3D platformer, not a GTA clone like N&B was.

You are nit-picking; letting the very sight of anything with wheels in a Banjo-type game trigger you.

This forum sometimes. Yeesh.
