Cringe-Worthy Yooka-Laylee Rap Highly Nostalgic

YookaLaylee-Rap-1

YookaLaylee-Rap-2

YookaLaylee-Rap-3

In honor of Yooka-Laylee‘s (a title reminiscent of Banjo-Kazooie made by ex-Rare developers) impending release, Playtonic Games have unveiled a parody of the Donkey Kong 64 rap, which was previously created by one of Yooka-Laylee’s current composers.

The humorous rap, with commenters apparently being more inclined to talk about politics and a past controversy instead:

The Donkey Kong 64 rap for comparison’s sake:

The love letter to old 3D adventure games will make its way to PC, Mac, Linux, PS4 and Xbox One on April 11th; a Nintendo Switch release is also slated for sometime this year.

    This is what you get when you let minorities and feminists decide how your game will be made instead of actual skilled people.

    What's the point of reporting a game pandering to SJWs?

    All the game PUBLISHER did was remove a person who was paid for their time. It wasn't the people who made the game.
    The game is still fine and stop being a bitch baby.

    All the game developers and publisher did was ignore and ban backers asking for their money back, and then publically mock them.

    Team17 is the publisher, Playtonic Games are the developers. It was Playtonic Games that removed him.

    Yet another game that was ruined by SJWs.

    Overreacting much? I don't agree with their decision either but this reverse knee jerk looks even worse than their knee jerk.

    Removing one voice actor doesn't "ruin" the game at all.

    How about their decision to ignore anyone asking for their money back and then mock them publically?

    Shitting on your backers and supporters doesn't "ruin" the game at all.

    Had they goten rid of a voice actor 1 or 2 weeks after being added. Sure.. no prob. But shortly after having the game released.. The ditch him.. EVen when he was the one who also promoted them since the launch of the kickstarter back in 2015. Its an asshole move to do it now. All cus the voice actor has person views on things. I havent seen other devs toss the va aside over the va personal views. Havent seen them tossing Ashley Burch, who is also a va. Not get fired over her views on gamers. Buying into the wholle sarkeesian bullshit. What pissed people of the most is the Publisher of this game behaviour toward Jon Tron being kicked... but also by the publishers who saw that people demanded refunds. Calling them entitled from what i saw. And then then people geting banned from the steam forums. That game has some interesting people backing them.

    A character that's a literal trouser snake. Seriously? What is this, 1995 and everyone is in 4th grade? The devs have absolutely no moral high ground to stand on.

    The fact that this game is a spiritual successor to something that released in 1998 and is intended to capture that exact same feeling, completely invalidates any criticism from your comment. Try a little harder.

    The fact that we've all grown up, and our tastes in comedy have matured away from infantile penis jokes, completely invalidates your criticism of my criticism.

    All this outrage, you'd figure it would be a well-loved philantropist who'd been removed from the game.

    But nope. A person with a Youtube account.

    All this ~mad~ for a person who's basically a bottomfeeder, subsisting on how many people have clicked a video on Youtube. So yea, move along, nothing to see here.

    "Much sjw's" Goddamn it, you people are fucking retarded. The hell does removing a guy who made some controversial rants because it might ruin the products image somehow related to sjw's?

    The parts where he said something SJWs didn't like and was removed because of SJWs.

    And the parts where they ignored and banned anyone who wanted their money back, and then shit on their faces.

    But masochists love being treated like shit, so it's perfectly acceptable and nobody else is allowed to complain.

    Playtonic could have simply released a statement saying Jon's statements had nothing to do with them, spice it up a little with diversity buzz wording, instead they took him out despite Jon only providing enemy grunts and went full SHUT IT DOWN mode, this whole mess is entirely on their heads.

    No, they could have just ignored the faggots from NeoGAF who were running around trying to fuck over JonTron because he dared not fall on his sword for them with his video about it.

    They've hated him ever since he called the PS Move retarded. Protip: It was two sticks with glowy balls on the ends. It was retarded as hell.

    Exactly. All they had to do was say that what Jon Tron said had absolutely nothing to do with them.

    Instead, they overreacted and then doubled down by shitting on everyone's faces.

    Instead of outright removing him after the statement, it should have been a patch available in the option menu, whether you want ""controversial"" audio enabled in the game or not, and then apply the "fix" for the user instead of it just being a default thing. That way, the fragile people could be ""protected"", and regular people could continue on as normal.

    SJWs don't buy games anyway, it's safe to ignore them. All they do is bitch.

    Difficult to ignore people when they're screaming on a bullhorn directly into your ear...

    If every time someone had controversial or potentially offensive views resulted in their getting fired/removed, nobody would have a job.
