Yooka-Laylee

Playtonic’s Kickstarter pitch for Yooka-Laylee was simple: this would be a modern take on the 3D platformers Rare was famous for in the N64 era. With that in mind, Yooka-Laylee counts as a success – it does a fine job of recreating the game play of those titles for modern hardware. Effectively it’s Banjo-Kazooie built on the Unity engine. Playing as Yooka and Laylee, a chameleon and bat duo who must gather the pages of a magical book, the worlds to explore are colourful and varied. The controls don’t feel quite as responsive and tight as modern titles but it features some gloriously hilarious good-bad puns, and the soundtrack is a delight.
Irritations include not being able to skip slow text and some of the noises the characters make. So, while Yooka-Laylee does an admirable job of replicating Rare’s heyday, it is missing that extra layer of polish and modernisation that would have made it truly shine. Overall, the pleasure to be had here will depend really on just how much you enjoyed Banjo-Kazooie back in 1998.
Virry VR
It would perhaps be too much to describe Virry VR as a true game, but it is on a gaming format and intriguing enough to warrant the attention of gamers. The first paid-for 360-degree video released for PlayStation VR, it’s probably better categorised as an interactive wildlife documentary.
Shot in the Kenyan Savannah, Virry VR places its viewers in the heart of the action, as animals such as hyenas, elephants and rhinos feed and squabble. Along with a voiceover, there are occasional interactions and occasional quiz questions, plus an animal-free relaxation mode for those who like the idea of relaxing by a Kenyan riverside.
Where it succeeds is in the presence of the animals. It is nearly always delightful, as some of Kenya’s most impressive wildlife come up close. The content, while shot in 4K, is not 3D but remains of superb quality, and while there are a few too many glitches, for a modest sum Virry VR offers a very accessible sense of how VR may change documentary-making.
