Game of the Week – Banjo Kazooiee

Yep, we’re playing the absolute classic platformer, Banjo Kazoiee this week! Everyone has different degrees of success (you may be surpised by Jess’s effort!) and the game proves to be as much fun to play as it was way back when it was first released.

Be sure to join us for discussion of the Stop N Swop mystery, the beauty of the blended music, our thoughts on most of the levels, what we found fun/frustrating, Jess proving she is so stupid it’s unbelievable and much, much more.
