I haven’t talked about this game in detail have I? I probably should. Now keep in mind I haven’t actually played the original Banjo and Kazooie (please don’t hate me) however this game looks like it’s setting up to be one of 2017’s greatest hits. Created by Platonic Games, a studio featuring many old Rare employees, and kickstarted by us Yooka-Laylee is set to be the spiritual successor to the Banjo series, a game which hasn’t had a 3D platformer entry since the N64 days.
What astounds me to this day is just how much praise the game has gotten from those who have played early versions, there is so much hype surrounding the game and it’s not even out yet! The developers have been very open with what is going into the game, it has multiplayer minigames for people to play and it even has an amazing N64 shader option to make the game look like a 64 bit game. There is even a rare version of the game on a god damn N64 cartridge that can actually be played on that system!
Now I was a fool and didn’t pick up the game while it was still in Kickstarter so I will have to pay the full price unfortunately, however I am more than happy to as it looks like this game will be a great success. Just need to wait to March to pre order it, need to spread out my costs with all the new games coming out around the start of spring! That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
