Destructoid: Yooka-Laylee was hyped all to hell. It was in the heyday of Kickstarter campaigns, amidst some major wins and disappointments (not to mention the stupid JonTron debacle). With the amazing Playtonic team behind it, and one of the best musicians in gaming history (fight me, I’m right), it was shaping up to be a worthy spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie.
It came, it saw, and it sort of floundered, like a turd in the wind. And frankly, I could not understand why.
