Joystick Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair

Anyone gonna be picking this up (Oct. 8)? When I first saw the trailer below a few months back, I was very skeptical. It seemed like a lazy 2.5D semi-sequel to the first game. Turns out, however, it's a really good platformer in its own right--at least according to the critics. IGN just gave it an 8.7 and right now its score is 80+ on Metacritic, which is super impressive when you consider that the original game scored in the 60s-70s across all four platforms.



I'm still bitter that they didn't make another 3D collectathon since there's such a shortage of those games, but I have to say... these review scores are a pleasant surprise! I thought for sure it'd end up being a 6/10, tops.

EDIT: Forgot to mention that the game just costs $30, and is discounted to ~$23 if you're a VIP on GMG.

Team17 has always had solid releases. They never do big blockbuster type titles, but their smaller games are always very well put together.
