Yes! It would be great to have a huge world to explore with areas to unlock. Mario64/Sunshine/Bajo Kazooie/Conker's Bad Fur Day etc....those were good times. Now with the newer consoles games like this should really POP!
Like a Pixar movie in FullHD
Yes! Please give so many 3D platformers. I don't even care if they are shitty or rehashed.
Return? Where have you people been hiding for the past 7 years? We got a Ratchet every year, Sly, Mario, Jak and many more. Yooka is a proof that platformers are going nowhere when you see how fast it reached the kickstarter..
yes of course it is... but why so much talking and so much surprise from a promising 3d platformer like Yooka lalee and not KNack which is already released , its solid ,well made and plays extremely well??? ..oohh i see it s exclusive...and the majority of COD playing media didnt like it
Mario 64-2 please
Check out A Hat in Time. It's another kickstarter platformer that was inspired by all the old Rare platformers. I am really looking forward to its release this year.
anything but open world shooter games , give them a break PLEASE!!!!
Open world shooter games... i can only think of FarCry4... what else?
Borderlands, Just Cause, Dead Island, Arma III, Day Z, H1Z1, ... not exactly sure if counting as shooter: inFamous, Saints Row, GTA
Like i said it before in an article, 3D platformers it's one of my favorite genres
Clearly it is. also bring back JRPG's damnit! BRING THEM BACK IN BLACK! (i am aware that JRPG's are still being made but they are not that common... and most of the time not that great if you ask me... Atlus and Level-5 still occasionally push out some really good ones and Pokemon obviously too...)
jrpg's are still a thing. they never died out.
that's exactly what i said no? but seriously it used to be a lake of quality JRPG's but now it's more like a pond with a couple of rainy days once in a while... The amount of JRPG's on PS2 compared to today is miniscule
Jrpg's are plenty common btw
Really good ones aren't.
I frigging hope so
errr where did the 3d platformer go? I played a hell a lot of Mario last year.
Yes please :) they shouldn't have left in the first place
I don't know, I bought Knack dirt cheap in a PSN sale because it got blasted so hard I thought the game was awful and I ended up having a great time with it. Kiddy looking 3D platformers will always have an issue to be deemed as beautiful looking, the argument of it could have been done on a PS1 or N64 will pop here and there. 2D has the same issue, but once in a while you'll get a Rayman Legends or Rayman Origins. I'm just saying it's an uphill battle for these genres to be highly praised.
