There aren't as many "big" games coming out this month, but there's still plenty to talk about, especially since April brings the release of Playtonic's Yooka-Laylee, their long-anticipated riff on Banjo-Kazooie. I've been playing the game, as has Danielle, and the results are...not great. We use Yooka-Laylee as a reason to dive deeper into the merits of modernizing nostalgia, while Austin tries to provide some clarification on his bird opinions. Of course, we also dive into The Question Bucket, wherein we try to figure out who is The Velvet Underground of games.
