    “…a streamlined save system and checkpoints”

    Sooner than expected, but good on keeping it out of the crowded holiday season.

    Wonder how long it’ll take for the PC, Xbox and possibly Switch versions to be revealed, though.

    Day 1 for me. This makes sure that there will be at least one good 3D platformer this year.

    there is still Yooka Laylee and Mario Odyssey

    We don’t know how those will turn out though.

    Yooka Laylee has like a half hour of gameplay footage, and it basically looks as good as the Banjo games, but with better graphics.

    I doubt Mario will end up bad since its one of the few series Nintendo is very careful with, unlike Metroid.

    Both look good, but there is no guarantee that they’ll be.

    After Mighty No.9 Im weary as well, but I already wrote off that game once I saw gameplay footage. I have more confidence in these other three games, so Ill just wait and see.

    Yep, I’m in the same boat, especially when it comes to Kickstarter games. Shantae turned out to be awesome and I hope Yooka Laylee is too.

    Damn, that’s a lot sooner than I expected.

    The original Crash games are great, but this is Activision we’re talking about. They could very well fuck up these remakes.

    That’d normally be true, but they stated that they are keeping all the geometry and updating only the textures, so it’ll essentially be the same games with a couple more polygons.

    A Hat in Time releases this year as well. Looking pretty fucking good so far.

    EB Games is still the biggest game retailer in Australia last I checked.

    They got bought out by Gamestop in the USA, so they’re extinct over here.

    They’re still owned by Gamestop in countries still with EB Games it seems, they just kept the brand, which makes sense.

    His nose is too short in this new model. And his eyes are a bit too big. That’s my main critique so far.
