So Master Malstrom, I find it interesting how Playtonic is changing Yooka-Laylee to be a 2D sidescroller game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3yOChAqaQw&feature=youtu.be The reason for Yooka-Laylee’s existence was to evoke Banjo-Kazooie, Rare’s premier 3D platformer of the N64 era. The old developers from Rare formed the company Playtonic for this reason. Now Yooka is evoking Rare’s 2D days, being more […]
Just look at their big stupid eyes in Smash and that music it’s almost like Rare was making a parody of the bad side of Nintendo that would only get worse. The games are awful too, remove the movement options from Mario 64 and the game would be irredeemable but that’s exactly what BK is. […]
Dear Master Malstrom, It seems most of the gaming journalists are saying that Nintendo won E3. Compared to the competition which mostly showed cinematic movie trailers with no gameplay, then yes, I guess you could say it’s true. But I get annoyed when I see headlines such as “E3 proves that Nintendo is at the […]

So video game fans, another annual Electronics Entertainment Expo show, (aka E3), just passed through again. As a fan of video games since the days of the original NES generations, news and previews of such have kept me engaged in the workings and developments of what’s to come, I have been following E3 for nearly […]
Now onto Bethesda, Ubisoft and Square-Enix. I don’t have anything substantial to discuss when it comes to Nintendo’s Direct, aside from the following. Oh, the guy from Dragon Quest 11 and Banjo-Kazooie are in Smash Bros now. I’ll be more attentive wants the Doom Marine shows up. Oh, and there’s a Zelda: Breath of the Wild sequel […]
The 2019 Electronic Entertainment Expo has come and gone, and with it a surge of excitement towards the latest games coming to us in the coming years. With so many announcements to pour over, from trailers to gameplay demos and entire presentations, these announcements stand out to me as the highlights for E3 2019.
On Friday I published a list of five genres of games missing from consoles in 2019, which you can read here. Subsequently having loaded up my RetroPie and indulged in some classic gaming I’ve realised that I missed one out; the licensed game. No matter what it was – film, TV show, or comic strip […]
You’ve had my snarky quasi-reviews of the conferences, and heard what I thought of the shows overall, but what about my favourite bits without my ingrained sense of pessimism pissing over everything good and right with the world? Well, I’ve got you covered with this little list of my Top 10 Moments from E3 2019 […]
Pre-Conference Thoughts: Nintendo has been hit or miss the last two years, with last year’s Direct presentation being underwhelming in terms of content that was not Smash Bros. This year, they don’t have a game that they will spend a significant amount of time showing off (based on their promotional materials), which means that they […]
[ad_1] We’re in a wacky time for gaming. A time when all the gaming platforms, from Switch to PC, are holding hands around the campfire, singing folk songs and sharing a beer. For the first time in gaming history, we’re seeing unity and teamwork in the industry as a whole, and in turn, the industry […]
Hey all, it’s Ink, Inka, whatever, here to talk about the Nintendo E3 2019 Direct. This Direct was jam-packed full of good stuff, so I’m happy to talk about it all. But I’m not alone in this endeavor. I pestered my good friend and Nintendo fanboy Fizzlesnoofson to be part of this, so we can […]
We're back with another comparison video on Xbox One X this time looking at both Banjo Kazooie and Banjo Tooie now that both have received a cheeky update. Unfortunately, there is a major update with this One X upgrade patch when comparing both old Banjo games from the N64 days. Perhaps it could be because […]
Some new pictures in the fan art section, some Aggeretsuko season 2 and some SFW Banjo Kazooie
With another Gaming Christmas in the rear-view, the Doublejump Staff sits down to talk about the event’s many highlights and lowlights!
1. Know your character. -Register the data of your character, if your character is 32 by 64 in a 32 tile system, and can jump 64 pixels in the air, don’t make the jumps more than 64 pixels high. If you have a mechanic like the Mario games where you can run prior to a […]
