Can we get a 3D Platformer thread going?

What do you think about A Hat in Time and Yooka-Laylee?

What's your favorite?

I don't have much fate in A hat in time, looks amateurish. Yooka-Laylee I look forward to though, but we haven't seen anything besides pre-alpha game play and concept art.

A Hat in Time looks okay from what I've seen, which isn't much since I'm trying to stay as blind as possible on it so it's a fresh new experience when I do play it. The animations and movement look really cheap though.

We've barely seen anything from Yooka-Laylee, and I prefer it that way. Although a lot of people are wary of them using Kickstarter to fund it, I'm pretty confident the game will be good, since the guys behind it have plenty of experience.

As for my favorite, I'm torn between Banjo-Kazooie and DK64, probably leaning toward the latter.
>>
>>323427758

I had fun with the hat in time beta, but I remember some announcement they had about how some of the later levels will not have separate acts and will be just linear one time levels. I don't remember if this is true or where I heard it, but a lot of the hype has died for me.

Also the red spheres that you collect in the level don't seem to do anything (I think they heal you?) so there's literally no incentive to collect collectibles. There are lots of things to collect (the pieces of paper that open the safes) but again, there is literally no reason to collect anything because nothing does anything.

I wrote a short essay about how the player needs a reason to collect things on the feedback forums, but was mostly ignored.
>>
>>323428459
I don't know anything about the game, but I bet the collectibles don't do anything just because it's a beta.
>>
Man I can't believe this year will be 18 years since I bought Banjo Kazooie, still my favorite after all these years.
>>
>>323428353
What is it about DK64 that you prefer over BK? Is it the different playable characters, and that you don't mind all the collecting
>>
When is A Hat In Time going to be released, or have they still not said a date?
>>
>>323428690
I actually love all the collecting. It is a collectathon after all.
I think it's just all the stuff you can do, and how the levels feel jam-packed with content. I also really love the atmosphere and music.
But like I said, Banjo is a close second.
>>
>>323428940
What's your opinion on Banjo Tooie? It's kind of like a the middle of the road between BK and DK64, like it has the BK stuff mixed with the enormous levels and varied game play of DK64.
>>
>>323427758

>What do you think about A Hat in Time and Yooka-Laylee?

Both honestly look kinda ordinary, from a control/camera/mechanics stand point i've seen far more interesting and solid platformers come out of 48 hour game jams and student projects.

Yooka-Layylee in particular worries me, there's just nothing that stands out about it, environments look bad to the point of they may as well be procedurally generated, characters are extremely boring and what little gameplay we've seen looks clunky, kinda scary given the pedigree of it's creators.

As much as i'd love to see a resurgence of my all time favourite genre, I doubt we will. No one is attempting anything new, everything feels forced, contrived and derivative for the sake of nostalgia.

As much as I loathe Schafer and Double Fine, i'd honestly say Psychonauts 2 is our best bet a solid new 3D platformer.
>>
>>323429185
I actually don't like it nearly as much as either. I still like it, just not as much.The levels feel empty to me, like they're huge but have nothing going on for long stretches of land. I especially hate that they reduced the note collecting, since it would have made it a lot better in my opinion if there was stuff to collect while you're walking around.
>>

It's almost like it was a pre-alpha demo of a game that has just barely started production.
>>
>>323429462
I see. I agree that it does feel very empty at times. I feel that DK64 handled that better, the areas always has a purpose while in BT there are a lot of just walking from Point A to Point B with just a couple of enemies in the way.
>>
>>323429224
Like the other anon said, the game play is from a prototype build, the finished game will very much likely look and feel better.

I wonder WHEN Yooka-Laylee will be released though. I guess 2017 would be reasonable.

Did you only play R&C1? Because I feel that all the first installments in Playstation Platformers Trilogies (Crash, Spyro, Sly etc) don't hold up as good as the sequels.
>>
>>323429791
I've never played any R&C games, and I've only just recently played Jak1, and it was the most pure fun I've had with a game since the N64 era 3D platformers. I highly suggest you pick it up. I heard that the later games were more action focused to I haven't bothered to play those yet.

Why do 3D platformers have to be cartoony and unoriginal? Most 3D platformers rip off banjo kazooie, DK64 and Mario 64. Why can't we get a 3D platformer that takes after Castlevania?

>>
>>323432774
Timed, tricky platforming, and if you mess up it's instant death.

Seriously, everywhere else in the game if you mess up a jump you can save yourself in some way, like fluttering to reduce fall damage.

Plus, the way the level's layed out, you're likely to go there near the end, and if you mess up you have to start all over collecting notes.
>>
>>323427758
Man I still havnt touched Banjo-tooie to this day
>>
>>323434218
Wouldn't it be better to start first at the engine room to get the jiggies and then move on to the rest of the stage?
>>
>>323434730
Yes, unless you're confident that you can do it in one try or don't know it's coming.
When I said you're likely to go there last, I meant if you don't already know to go there first.

Just your threadly reminder that Banjo Kazooie romhacks now exist.

>>323435209
Have you tried it?
>>
>>323435549
Tried what? The hack? Yeah.
>>
>>323435642
How is it? Does it feel like a expansion to BK, or how would you describe it?
>>
A Hat in Time looks cute but everything I've seen of it seems like a really uninspired pastiche of SM64/Sunshine, Banjo, and the Wind Waker.
>>
>>323435792
I think it's pretty great. The levels are not huge, and due to the limitations of hacks for Banjo Kazooie at the minute it relies on you collecting 25 notes in a level instead of Jiggies (since there are no jiggy pictures yet), this means you have to backtrack to prior levels on occasion and collect all your notes again. This is made less awful because you gradually get more and more moves over the course of the hack making it easier to move around the worlds. New areas branching off each world's hub mean there is actually an incentive to return.

The soundtrack is great, the guy seems to have caught the Grant Kirkhope spirit very well.

It's only got a hub and 4 worlds at the minute, but each one is pretty great so far (the first one isn't quite as good as the other three though so don't let it stop you from progressing).

It's something you should try out, you have to go on the Banjos Backpack website and figure out how to patch a BK rom with the Banjo Dreamie patch which might take 5 minutes.

Oh wow that sounds way better than I expected, thanks for recommending it! I'll definitely check it out!

Oh, well then, I'll check it out then, because the controls were my biggest complaint in the first game.
>>
Never been a fan of 3d platformers, which is funny since 2d platformers are my favorite genre.

I think it's the unresponsive controls when compared to 2d that puts me off, i have a hard time for 2d platformers with unresponsive controls too such as that Bloodrayne game by Wayforward.

That said i will try A Hat in Time and Yooka-Laylee, maybe it was just a framerate issue with the N64, i know a shitty framerate makes shit unresponsive.
>>
>>323437173
I really don't. I can't recollect much, but the backtracking was probably the biggest problem. I liked each world in BK basically being self contained with the exception of Gobi's Valley and Freezeezy Peak I think (technically Bubblegloop Swamp required the speed shoes but you could get that jiggy without them). Multiplayer was about the only thing I liked and even then I enjoyed Perfect Dark more.
>>
>>323437490
The Playstation plattformers always had good framerate iirc, so maybe try those instead? Some anon earlier in the thread said Jak & Daxter was nice, so try that.
>>
>>323437693
Fair enough. The size of the worlds are definitely a problem, combine big but empty worlds with backtracking, and it gets more annoying than fun.
>>
Donkey Kong 64 was the pinnacle of 3D platformers. It was like Banjo-Kazooie was the amazing beta version, and DK64 was the polished release. Truly Rare's masterpiece.
>>
I love Psychonauts and I'm excited that a sequel may actually come out for it. I know how people haven't been very fond of Double Fine lately, but I don't give a shit. I just want a motherfucking sequel. I'd put up with a dozen Broken Ages if it meant Psychonauts 2 would come out.
>>
>>323437989
No. This game is an example of style over gameplay. They had absolutely no fucking idea what they were doing when they came up with it. It almost single handedly knee-capped the collectathon.
>>
>>323437693
I feel the same way. I loved how each world was just it's own thing and you could just go in, get everything, and get out.

Bubblegloop Swamp doesn't need the speedy shoes at all, they're just there to make the minigame easier if you can't git gud.

They actually changed it so you need them to beat it in the Xbox 360 port though. Although if you're REALLY good you could probably beat it without them.

Hat in Time has potential but it's really taking its fucking time

Yooka Laylee is being made by a team who already made games in the past, so I'm excited, though hopefully they make the setting look less generic, the lighting effect of the first grass area bothers me

I really fucking love 3D World, the creativity in level design and the more smoother level design for real Platforming and not obstruction gimmicks makes it feel nice

Galaxy still had more higher quality and they still need to work on backgrounds not being empty spaces but the Platforming itself is fucking perfect
>>
>>323438364
I did, it was alright but not enough for me to bother finishing it. The same goes for games like Mario Galaxy, they're just so... boring? I guess i rather get to places than collect shit.

That's bizarre. Props to them making alterations I suppose? Wish they would've fixed Mr Vile knowing where the correct yumblies/grumblies would pop up before they did but I guess that would ruin most of the difficulty.

3D Rayman games are not a collectathon. Are you high?
>>
>>323438446

That reminds me

It's been 3 years

We should be expecting a new 3D Mario, the best case scenario would be as a NX launch title which will be fucking perfect

I wonder what it'll be

3D World lacked the special high quality touch of the Galaxy games but it was still fucking excellent in being a 3D Platformer I honestly prefer a progression of that style over a galaxy 3

>>323438809

>>323438150

Welcome to Unity
>>
>>323438582
I also love SM3DW, but I wish half the levels weren't floating platforms over a void. I want more levels like Sunshine where it's actually a world where people could live in, but there's still plenty of platforming to do.
>>
>>323438101
Apart from Freezeezy Peak and Gobi's Valley, you need Beak Bomb for Gobi's Valley, and running shoes for Freezeezy Peak

>>323438870
I don't recall collecting Lums to be a requirement for anything in Rayman 2, but it's been 6 years since I last played that game. Also 90% of them are played directly in your way and the levels are extremely linear.

>>323438582
I never played 3D World due chiefly to not wanting to spend money on a WiiU but does it do that thing where if you die x amount of times in a row on a stage, the stars on your profile don't shine? Assuming it still has them

>>323438974
Yeah, the post I replied to said that.
Personally, I always go Freezeezy Peak first since you can do everything except the last sled race.

>>323439086
That only ever happens if you actually use the Super Guide, and you can fix it by going back and completing the level yourself. This is for all of the Mario games that have it.
>>
>>323438823
Well, they need to bring out their big guns for the NX, and given the time that has passed since 3D World, I say it has to be a launch title indeed. I too want something original, though I'd be ok with a Galaxy 3.

In my opinion the XBLA versions are the 'truer' experiences, and I say this as someone whose favourite childhood game was Banjo Kazooie. With Tooie the difference between the original N64 version and the port will become stark to you. The original ran at 22 FPS with hiccups at a blurry as fuck 240p with shit textures. The port runs at 1080p widescreen with high resolution textures. The original Tooie was unplayable in certain levels like Terrydactyland, on XBLA its a 10/10 game. I'd say those ports are some of the best things put out on the 360.

The XBLA ports are what the games would have been in a perfect world, where objects don't pop in within 10 metres.

Because bigger =/= better.
As a sequel, it does it's job right. It takes the previous game, and build upon it.
There is just so much more of everything, like moves, transformations, characters, modes etc.
But with all the new stuff, the game looses its focus. BK was smaller in every sense, but more compact. Everything was there for a reason, no area left unfinished Stop-N-Swop not included, of coarse.
It's not bad, hell you could even argue it's better than BK in a way, but making it less linear means longer pauses between the fun stuff.
>>
>>323445058
It took rather simple things and made them unnecessarily different and complex. Backtracking was a much larger thing overall, and going back to the same level over and over to get one or two collectibles but only after getting a new ability that you don't get until much later is reasonably not fun, and can easily kill someones enjoyment. In Banjo-Kazooie, you always felt you were moving forward, going deeper into Grunty's lair, but in Tooie, you were always going back to the same places over and over again, so it felt more like a relatively empty open world with levels scattered around that you could find, but be unable to access until you had a certain number of collectibles.

If there is one thing that Nintendo still does well is making the world stick out, and not just a replica of the real world. Go crazy, be creative!

Atleast try to have ONE level that's not jungle, lava, water -and desertworld.

So I just started the Sly collection. Does it get better after two? 1 was meh with such a shitty final boss. 2 was better by miles but it was like 3 levels too long and although the final boss was an improvement, it was still disappointing.

i think 2 is the best honestly. 3 is a little too big for its own good

3D world is more arcadey than exploration focused like Sunshine or 64. It's a great game but I don't think it's what we're talking about

I played Ape Escape 1 for the first time this fall.
I had seen it countless times in stores as a kid but never got to play it.
It was pretty damn good, my only complaint was that the spinning for that flying item was really hard to pull off in the race level against your rival.

I want to play another one, but should I skip to 3? I always hear people talk about that one, but never 2. Is 2 not as good?

I have had fun with the Beta Version of A Hat in Time, the movement is pretty comforrtable (to me), but unfortunately I think Mafia Town is the only good stage that I've seen so far. I prefer the exploratory nature over the 3D mario model where you go from A to B and get sucked out of the level.

I have high hopes for Yooka Laylee. I'm really happy that there are so many people working on it that worked on my favorite game of all time, but at the same time I have to be skeptical seeing as it has been literally years since they last made a game of that nature. I fear they might have lost their edge.

The lab theme is supposed to be dangerously close to fear factory and other Kirkhope compositions.

All in all I take major inspiration from both him, David Wise, the Rayman 2 soundtrack (Tranquil Treeline intro and Follow That Breakfast)
and a bit of Koji Kondo I suppose, because the beach theme still gives me SMG Beach Galaxy vibes.

From the footage I have seen so far for A Hat in Time, it looks cool. There isn't a whole of Yooka-Laylee shown yet so I have no real opinion right now, but considering that its being made by ex-Rare devs makes me optimistic for it.
Banjo Tooie might be my favorite 3d platformer. Hailfire Peaks is GOAT.
I also love games that have a lot of 3d platforming despite not actually being traditional platformers, like Metroid Prime. Xenoblade Chronicles X is my favorite recent example. Yea its a JRPG, but holy shit is there a lot of stuff to jump on, collect, and explore.

Well i don't really care ybout the origin i guess. I just associated it with 8ch because i read about it somewhere. Techraptor maybe.

Can't be bothered to scroll up to your original post, but as I'm fairly sure it's you I'm noticing quite a bit of DKC influence in there, more so than BK/Kirkhope's stuff.

Have you listened to the TF soundtrack, because I was reminded a bit of these two
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YtMSyLdk0Q8
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Boqy0Q-4c_M

>>323472169
>>323472169
nigga I fucking love the Tropical Freeze soundtrack and it's been a really big inspiration for me. I love the sort of melancholic sound in Wises music so much and my style probably matches that a bit more, than Kirkhopes but I don't think I ever thought of those 2 tracks when I made the tunes that could've reminded you of this ost. I'm still trying to draw lots of inspiration from Kirkhope, though.
>>
>>323472565
Yeah, the OST is great, and really goes with the levels, especially world-2, just how the windmills and mountains look so much like the countryside you see in the Netherlands, and Bavaria.

As for Kirkhope, don't try too hard to get his inspiration in, just go for what seems natural at the time. Personally I'd say Kirkhope is better for the quicker more fast-paced environments like with Hideout Helm, and a lot of the boss music, whereas Wise is a a lot more atmospheric.

Of course there are exceptions, like Fear Factory, and Minecart Carnage by Wise, DK Isles, Click Clock Wood, and Freezeezy peak by Kirkhope
>>
never liked the dk64 soundtrack. it sounds like filler really. there's a remix on the europe version of the ost release that's ok (not by kirkhope, credited as "acoustic department")

A hat in time is pretty shit. It has none of the magic from old games, just feels like a souless copy.

Yooka-Laylee is my most hyped game right now.

Oh well, thank you all for a great thread!

Fungi Forest had the best boss, Mingy Jongo was a hero who did nothing wrong, and knew about Nuts and Bolts
