          mostly anything that isn't tedious. usually bosses or regular levels are fine, just in the case of banjo it's such an annoying tedium that shouldn't even happen.

            Besides Click Clock Wood specifically, every other level is compact and straightforward. It only takes 20-30 minutes to 100% a level. It's really not as big of a deal as you're making it out to be.

          Fable 2. Dying just makes you lose a bit of your unspent XP and gives you a cosmetic scar. You fall over then immediately get back up and continue battling until you eventually win.
          It makes the game extremely boring because theres no meaningful risk involved whatsoever. It's almost like playing with a permanent invincibility cheat that can never be turned off.

      Note progress isn't saved in the original due to memory limitations, they wanted it to be stored but it wasn't possible. This was rectified in Tooie and re-releases of BK on later platforms.

      Notes are irrelevant fluff in Tooie since they're all grouped together in easy to find clusters and the XBLA re-release has a game breaking bug where notes are permanently missing if you partake in the Bottles puzzles before finishing the respective levels

      I think that the lives should be used as continues so you can continue to collect them if you die.

      Lives are useless in this game, it's used for literally nothing.

      It's a bad design, though, to save each note as you collect them as the recent ports.

      I know that feeling, that's why I always go there before anything else.

                The N64 did have a memory expansion that was necessary for some of its later games

                That's a different kind of memory. The expansion pak is more RAM. RAM is transient memory that only remembers what's written to it as long as the console is turned on, and is erased as soon as its turned off. For save data (that doesn't go on the memory pak, an optional accessory that plugs into the N64 controller), the cartridge itself needs to be bigger. Think of it like expansion pak = more RAM in your computer, bigger cart = bigger HDD/SSD in your computer. Banjo-Kazooie was on a 16MB cartridge, Banjo-Tooie was on a 32MB cartridge.

                and they used the extra data for other things, the notes ended up getting shafted again (they mattered less in the game anyway following the feedback from kazooie)

              also I can't find a total count of how many saved collectibles RRoW actually has so I just have to take your word for it that it had more. It likely used a cart with more onboard memory, but you'd have to own a cart and take it apart yourself to find out as information on this is obscure.

        This makes no sense though since the game does save note progress as your highest note score for that stage.

          I'm assuming it knows the number of notes, just not which individual notes you actually collected.

          There's a difference between saving an int of the maximum value you collected, versus tracking the position of each specific note you collected and deleted (or skipping the draw call) for that note when you re-enter the level.

      In retrospect this model for Grunty is super impressive. The fact that her hair sways and breasts jiggle is pretty crazy for a game at the time. Compare her to ol' triangle breasts Lara Croft for example.

    I played through this last summer and honestly having to collect the notes in one go is great. All of the levels are perfectly sized to where it isn't even an issue, and there's only one level that requires an ability from a different one. It's easy to just tackle the game one world at a time if you're going for 100%.

        When you think about it, once you get high enough elevation in Click Clock Wood, the entire stage functionally becomes a bottomless pit cuz you just die no matter what if you're that far up. Not functionally much different from the ground being flooded with lava

    If they remake this game you should lose 20 Music Notes when you die. Banjo-Kazooie NEEDS an incentive to not die but N64 was too harsh. A very light penalty to disencourage death is appropriate. Losing 20 Notes is trivial because you'll get half of them back just by walking back to the spot where you died
