A Shameful Mess. Colin Checks Out The First Hour Of Conker's Big Reunion On The Xbox One!
WHAT?!?!? This is a thing?
Yes Project Spark my daughter plays she loves it. Its graphically superior to Minecraft you build your own games and stuff. Microsoft should be promoting this more but they are crappy at PR as we have found out.
Y I have Spark but wasn't aware that they did Conker for it. Huzawww. Gonna have to check this out tonight... after the hockey game that is
Hockey is lame. NBA is superior. Go Cavs. And wow I'm impressed by this pseudo remake.
They really need to have RARE make the real Conker game. This game doesn't look as good as the N64 version. For $5 what do you expect I guess. If you're going to make a Conker sequel, at least do it right. Using the Project Spark engine for this was probably a bad idea.
loved the war lvl in conker. its a series that should really come back. i would buy an xb1 just for it.
I enjoyed it. well worth the 9.99 for the whole package
I love how this guy does nothing but cry, when this was all done within the engine. It looks really good for all being done with limited assets. I'll be picking it up tonight. Also, I am guessing he never played the N64 version because they gave you ZERO direction in that game.
Of course I've played old platformers. The original Conker was state of the art in 2001 with a gigantic world and a huge amount a voice acting for a N64. This game has horrible framerates, generic stage design, game breaking glitches, bad controls, and lazy boss battles. By all means, check it out if you're curious, it's only 5 bucks. But in my opinion this is a shameful cheap cash in on the goodwill and nostalgia of the series past. I usually find the good in the games I dislike but I truly hated this game.
Right off the bat you were whining. I mean I don't even own an xbox one but I could tell you'd made up your mind before you even played it.
Dude, you need to remember this is basically a build within Project Spark. It's experimentation. You have recorded this video with the most ridiculous expectations. FriedGoat here is right, your mind was made up before you played it.
So he's not allowed to have expectations of his own for the game? Apparently... So when the game feels bad and not appropriate as a comeback, he gets criticized and you criticize someone with the most cliched of responses of elitism where you presume he must not have ever played the original game? Really childish. Any person with a rational mind can tell the level design looks like garbage. Project Spark or not, Conker is thrown in there for sales because of using his image for nostalgia.
If its free then cool, if I gotta pay. Sorry Conker but M$ took a dump on you.
With my nostalgia glasses on this was great fun when I played it earlier. Being built from the ground up on project spark is quite impressive. I can almost forgive the bugs. It's basically a conker mod though.
"Holy crap though, whisper quiet audio coming out of this game" Then turn it up? Crazy concept but volume has what's known as an "increase" function. Revolutionary tech from last CES
The rest of Project Spark outputs a lot louder than the voice acting, so that's bad mixing on their part.
Unless, you know, everything else is normal volume compared to it. It's not a no-issue like you seem to think it is.
That was painful to watch, poor old Conker.
I got this yesterday. I enjoyed the gameplay and jokes. However It always felt like the team could of done more if they weren't limited by the game engine and budget.
I guess Microsoft has been shopping around the idea for a new Conker to their internal teams for the past couple of years. RARE turned it down for sure and most other developers passed on it. I'd love another Conker game, but unless somebody steps up or MS is willing to outsource, it might never happen.
Insomniac is probably the perfect dev for a AAA Conker game; it's unfortunate that they turned the project down (at least according to Neogaf).
Would a new conker game even sell well? Gaming has changed soooo much from those days. Even though Conker has his fans, you couldn't survive on them alone.
Conker's Big Reunion is the game I've been waiting for for a lifetime, but not the game that I'm sure I wanted. We'll just have to see how the whole thing turns out.
Interesting, but if I want nostalgia I am playing Conker from the Xbox original on the Xbox 360. That is good enough as my tastes go.
Disagrees... Disagrees everywhere.
Conkers Big Reunion isn't what intrigues me. What people will do with the assets. Now that's something special.
RARE could remake ANY game they liked....But it would be a shadow of it's former glory....Just like the HORRIBLE PDZ...Terrible game....Kameo was OK, looked great, played VERY mediocre.....I know disagrees will FLY my way...but THE FACTS are FACT... RARE are a shadow of there former selves... When they split from Nintendo & became MS's biaaatch, many of there best staff got the hell out & formed Free Radical, of Timesplitters fame...(great developers, & greatest FPS series OF ALL TIME, God rest there souls)... RARE were NOT the same team, anymore....This is why MS has delegated them to Kinect duties....because they are a miss & miss team, just like Kinect is a miss & miss product...
