You know what's awesome?

Postby MrBadGuy99 » Sat Apr 08, 2017 11:04 am

The stamina bar. I always hated it in Banjo Kazooie/Tooie when I wanted to talon trot across a level quickly, I could do so indefinitely. I love extra barriers to gameplay, so this is a HUGE plus for me!

Annoying design decisions aside, I'm still super excited to play this on tuesday! Been waiting 17 years for this!

Stamina can work in games if done right. It fails hard in Skyward Sword but works well in Breath of the Wild. For Yooka-Laylee? We shall find out soon.

I agree, it works fantastically in BotW!

We've already played the Banjo games, and we know that Yooka-Laylee is heavily based on that style... all I'm saying is that if they released a patch for Kazooie which made it so you could only talon trot for a short while before having to stop and recharge, I'd be pissed. Running shouldn't be a reward in this type of game, it's just a means of getting to where you need to go with less frustration.

In fact I think the stamina in BotW might well be better if it only existed for climbing.

But anyway! This is all just my anxious mind, and I've yet to play the full game! Here's hoping it does work for Yooka-Laylee!

Yooka-Laylee should be its own game with its own feeling. It shouldn't try to be like Banjo-Kazooie, it shouldn't try to be like Donkey Kong, it should be like Yooka-Laylee.

I'm not a fan. I hate standing still for 15 seconds doing absolutely nothing waiting for it to reload.
