The eyeballs are extremely vulnerable to Laylee's sonar. It will actually destroy them outright in a lot of cases and if not, they will stay stunned more than long enough for you to combo them into oblivion.

Ironically, it's Corplets that will be more problematic later on...

I love how people say the worlds are "lifeless" and with few NPCs. They should replay the first Banjo game. There were really few NPCs overall in that game. Tooie had more though.

I have to admit, I wasn't TOO impressed when Playtonic first revealed Capital B's name, but I liked his appearance, and the name did grow on me, so it's all good... I wonder what the "B" stands for, though... Maybe we'll have ourselves a "Winkybunion" situation in the sequel! :P

Anyway, I went back to Tribalstack Tropics to get all the "important" items from there, as well as a few more Pagies to boot. I'm rather ashamed to admit that I had to look up where one Ghost Writer was, as well as the Health Extender. Not that I couldn't find them on my own, I just feel pressed for time when it comes to what games I want to play.

I also went back to Glitterglaze Glacier, got a Pagie there (BTW, Planker's a prick, in both senses of the word), got the transformation for that, and I have to say, that freaking Snow Plow is obnoxious to control, ESPECIALLY when you're trying to jump onto platforms that are slightly bigger than you are. Maybe once I have more time and patience I'll tackle it again, but for now I just can't.

No real progress in the story or Hivory Towers this time, though. I probably will tomorrow, though. BTW, does anyone know how to get that Pagie that the "I.N.E.P.T." is guarding? And more importantly, how am I supposed to find out in-game? Does one of the flowers tell you after you transform into a plant?

This might be a silly question, but is the DLC only for backers, or is it for everyone but will be free only to backers?

**HELP**

Pagie missing in Moodymaze Marsh. Triple checked everything with an online guide.
Any tips? Has anyone else experienced this? It's the last pagie I need before facing Capital B.....

For those who have experienced it, what did you think about the game's ending sequence?



I made a more in-depth thread about it here and what could have been done to make the ending more exciting if you want to check it out here:

It's late where I am right now, but I've made more progress in Yooka-Laylee and I REALLY want to talk about it! Since I'm beyond the third world by now, though, I feel like I should preface what I say with *SPOILERS ABOUND*! I'll try to spoiler-tag anything I think is too deep into the game or truly qualifies as spoiler-territory, so sorry if I DO reveal something I wasn't supposed to.

So anyway, I make it a point to at least unlock Dr. Puzz's transformation, play Rextro's mini-game, get the high score on said mini-game, ride Kartos, learn Trowzer's new move(s), and fight the boss of the world before moving on to the next one, BTW. I know it's going to take me FOREVER to actually get all the Pagies, Quills, Ghost Writers, and upgrades otherwise, so I just stick to the former things for now, while picking up as many Pagies and Quills that I can, and if I'm lucky, pick up other things as I find them.

I've warmed up to World 3 as I explored it more, the music is REALLY good, and I think I'm able to tell where I can and can't go, so long as there's enough light to show me what's poison swamp and what's ground. The boss fight was ESPECIALLY awesome I feel; I thought the other two were okay, but this one was a good fight, and awesome boss music to boot!

Though it's here I'm starting to notice something... the NPCs in each world are either in every world (Trowzer, Vendi, Rextro, Kartos, Planker, and that skeleton girl I'm not sure the name of at the moment, that whole thing), the boss of the world, or there are similar "types" of that character. With World 2 it's snowmen, World 3 , and it looks like with world 4 it's . World 1 is the only one I've seen so far with a variety of NPCs, what with "the Duke", Nimble and Nimbo the clouds, the Knights of Hamalot, Shovel Knight, etc. It's fine, the characters are still fun and interesting, to me anyway, and it's not like there are EXCLUSIVELY those kinds of characters in each world, I do encounter unique characters besides those, but I still couldn't help but notice the repeats as I explore more...

Also, can I just add that 3 mini-games/minecart rides in, and I don't still don't get the hate for Rextro and Kartos... Well, alright, with Kartos, let me just say that on his minecart ride, I got confused because , not to mention I kept crashing into things... yet I STILL managed to get the amount of gems I needed and thus win a Pagie. Derrick from GameXplain said it best, these minecart rides are a BIT too easy, especially if I can blindly flail about and still come out on top. Not that I mind, it means I don't have to do them again (which I ended up doing in World 2), but still, they aren't anything to hate on, they're just rather awkwardly executed, like the quizzes (which I'll get to in a moment). I also think it's unnecessary to give me the option to shoot stuff, since I barely use it and when I do, I rare hit anything. The whole thing just feels like either an afterthought or something slapped together rather than a true call-back to the minecart rides of Donkey Kong Country, which Kartos's character is CLEARLY trying to invoke.

Rextro, on the other hand, isn't as bad. His mini-game this time was just kind of "eh"; it's kind of like the last one only not as action packed. Plus the method of attack is weird on top of that. Unless there's a mini-game in world 4 or 5 that's REALLY frustrating or dumb, I'm ready to say the hate for Rextro is a BIT overblown.

But back to the Quizzes, I faced off against Dr. Quack again, in the exact same fashion as before, and much to my surprise,

I'll briefly touch on World 4 since I only got a little bit into that before I stopped playing;

Alright, just wanted to get my thoughts out there before I go to bed, thanks for reading!
