Is that a Star Fox reference? Does this game have any similarities to Star Fox whatsoever, or is it just a meaningless throwaway line?
I've seen the box and I THINK it has the apostrophe on the spine...They need to sort out the box art and add the freaking apostrophe back in. I tweeted them about it and they made a joke about it. It’s there for the Xbox game. Sort it out!
P.S. Has anyone bought the physical game? Interested to know if the spine includes an apostrophe.
Fe is pretty good. Kind of like an artsier take on SpyroBut more importantly... what is this "no shortage of great 3D platformers" proclamation all about? Unless a bunch of Switch games in my favorite genre completely flew under my radar, the only great 3D platformer on the system is Odyssey. There's also a good one in A Hat in Time, and... what else (besides now New Super Lucky's Tale)?
If I'm missing out on a deluge of quality 3D Switch platformers, I need to know.
Dang. Talk about half-arsing things.I've seen the box and I THINK it has the apostrophe on the spine...
But then they did a massive goof and typed their name as Playful Corps (with an added "s", so it'd be pronounced "Playful Core") in the copyright section.
And the Wwise logo in the IP Info page when you click + on the Switch menu is massive where they forgot to implement a fixed size with the other engine logos.
... and the game lacks Cloud Save function because WHY NOT. :P
Like, there's a surprising amount of tiny goofs with this game. Nothing that affects the game itself, but yeah, baffling.
I might be wrong, but I don't think Microsoft is involved with this Switch version.Help me ResetEra. I’m an old man, been gaming since Atari 2600 days, and I know that Microsoft has done some crazy things with Nintendo this year, but this game.....it was mediocre on Xbox based on Metacritic but Microsoft actually funded this game to make it better on a competing system? Why? And why not patch the Xbox One version to at least match the Switch version. I mean I’m happy about this but it’s just so baffling to me.
microsoft didn't fund this version. the IP belonged to the developer (playful studios), MS just handled publishing for the original release. in this release they've expanded the game and are publishing it themselves.Help me ResetEra.

ok that makes more sense I was just so confused!
Also, the ground diving, with the previous jump of course, is surprisingly gratifying.
No real deals other than that $33 is just the usual price for a $40 game at Walmart. Just like approximately $50 is the price for a game that would be $60 elsewhere at other brick and mortar places.
there's a few, but these lists are kinda scraping the bottom of the barrel (and calling some games platformers when they're not)
Dang, bottom of the barrel is right, lol. Of the ones that are actually 3D platformers, the only arguably great ones are Spyro and Crash (and Odyssey, of course).there's a few, but these lists are kinda scraping the bottom of the barrel (and calling some games platformers when they're not)
There are a number of colorful and enjoyable 3D platformer games available on the Nintendo Switch that capture the spirit of Super Mario Odyssey.www.thegamer.com
Yeah, there was no way I would be playing it now as I am currently finishing up Luigi Mansion 3 and with Pokémon releasing next week, all of my focus is going on that.
After i just completed the demo (only missing one hidden page damnit) i gotta say it really doesn't feel any more for a young audience than Spyro did for that matter, which didn't hinder my enjoyment at all for that game so i'm gonna assume it'll be the same here. Besides that though, top notch experience, controls well, looks pretty good and the flow is pretty much there, controls are not AS snappy as Odyssey of course but it easily gets the job done. Most importantly, the game exudes this 3D platformer atmosphere that has been missing in games for quite a while now, not sure how to describe it but it just feels "right". An easy buy once it hits a discount (i'd get it at full price but a bit short on cash these days and too many games already)
But if the reviewer happens to hate too easy or too difficult games, it's valid, don't you think? I mean, either extreme can definitely ruin one's enjoyment of a game.
