@aphex187: Well the early access edition is $75 it looks like anyway. Steep for a game that's not finished but I guess that's not an unheard of approach. (10 minutes ago)
Frustrating as shit that MS is sitting on this franchise not doing a goddamn thing with it. Now I know Rare's Gregg Mayles always wanted to make a pirate game and he is, but still. (14 minutes ago)
The absolute fantastic music that I can't help but constantly hum along to. Great level design, loveable character and their humor, the platforming itself, all the abilities, just... everything man. (15 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: Vat and then paypal charges crippled the overall price. I sat there and pondered if i should pay it and tbh i've just sold my Numark deck and though fk it. (17 minutes ago)
Been playing Banjo Kazooie all evening and man it's just so fucking good. So damn timeless this game. Definitely one of my favorite games ever. There is pretty much nothing bad about it. (20 minutes ago)
