People seem pissed on twitter but like NLife it is that price elsewhere, just the fact like now on PS4 due to a sale it's 15 and more then likely you can go buy a physical copy for that somewhere.

For me now, I'm more likely to buy A Hat in Time or one of the other 3D Platformers as I do think on any of the platforms 35 is to much.

The extra time and resources that Playtonic have spent on bringing Yooka-Laylee to Switch doesn't justify a lower price...but aye, when GAME have it for 9.99 new on PS4, it's a hard sell if you've got somewhere else to play it. I feel the same about DOOM being 40 when it's a tenner on other platforms, and Skyrim being 45 when it's in just about every charity shop in the country on 360 or PS3.

Eh. Switch tax. 'Tis the price we pay for portability. Only the consumer can decide if it's a fair one.

Thankfully no Switch Tax on this one as it is the same price on all Digital Stores. I don't just think it looks like it's worth 35 on any platform.

What with Y-L being a Kickstarted game, you'd maybe hope that the price wouldn't be quite so high. I can tell you that I would not be buying it day one if I had to.

One I'll be waiting on dropping in price, I'm afraid. It's launched the wrong side of Odyssey at that price.

I did, in effect! Grin I recorded a First Time Playing for it, too - or I would have, had the video not corrupted. Aww! Mind you, there was only about six minutes of play in about eighteen minutes of footage. So many cut scenes. What's worse... it feels awkward. Lumpy and leaden. I'm hoping that I'll warm to it soon.

So today I unlocked the second world. It's a slow-burner, isn't it? I'm hoping. Neutral

I've finally given this the time of day. Zero said it was a 'slow burner': I think it's just slow. Watching the camera crawl towards your next objective, hammering A to skip through the interminable dialogue...

That said, I'm actually kind of enjoying it. Kazooie's dialogue was a highlight of B-K, and Laylee summons up some of the same humour. It's lovely and colourful, and the camera appears to have been patched into competency (either that or its problems have been grossly exaggerated... I'll plump for the former). And, unlike SMO's Moons, the Pagies feel significant to collect.

It is slow though. Still, I can see myself playing (and enjoying) more of this!

Cool. I'm about to start it next time I switch on the Switch on the Switch, so I'm pleased that Laylee does the job!

It's a good game! I'd like to play it again on Switch, but I can't justify the price when I've got a PS4 copy *points over there* over there.

Well, I've hit the "too nostalgic" barrier, where I can't tell whether boss battles are difficult or unfairly difficult...

Persevering though, as I love Laylee's voice samples whenever anything is said. In fact, I love the voice samples in general.

Even without ever playing Banjo-Kazooie, I can still appreciate the little grumbles the characters make when they're speaking. Thumbs Up!
