Harlequin from NeoGaf:
I just listened to the new Podquisition episode and in it, Jim Sterling and Laura Kate Dale are warning people who've pre-ordered Yooka-Laylee :/.
They've apparently gotten review copies so they can't really talk about it until the embargo goes up but Jim said "if you pre-ordered it, think twice" (at around 32:30) and they both made some very unimpressed, ominous-sounding noises to describe their feelings on it. Later, Jim says "If you've looked at trailers and ever thought it looked a bit choppy" and then, shortly thereafter, "Yeah, yeah, a bit is not quite it." (Starting around the 41 minute mark.) I assume that refers to the game's performance being bad, though they make it sound like that may not be its only problem.
The podcast description also says: "Oh, and some… “preview” words of warning regarding Yooka-Laylee."http://www.thejimquisition.com/podquisi ... ke-peebee/
Yavga's own thoughts
I have to say if I scroll through the thread further many people who also already played the game seem to not understand Jim his stance in all this. Jim is the person who gave Breath of the Wild a score of 7 (not bad) but his supposedly nitpicking critique got many people angry.
I think he's doing great garnering attention, that aside. Please do not let your experience be influenced by the pre-opinion of others.
