That Gaming Site looks at what Rare might announce in 2009 with only two confirmed projects, what else might they be working on? They also look at the possibility of them being Microsoft's lead studio in 2009.
Hopefully something that doesn't involve a Bear on wheels
Heh yea I guess so, although I liked Nuts and Bolts but I can see why some may have hated it. Then again in the loading screens they do say if it's not your think play the XBLA port. :p
I want a new Conker adventure.
Conker would be cool!!
Banjo Kazooi: Cheese and Crackers
I really hope they bring all their classics on XBL, especially Conkers.
Conker would be great, I would love to see both of them on the Marketplace to be honest, as I'm sure many would as well. The last Conker was pretty underrated and sold horribly, Xbox Originals could give it a boost. :)
Honestly who cares about what Rare's next project is, they haven't made a decent game in ages
What do you mean decent? Almost everything they made with Microsoft aside from GBTG (Which got mixed from the high 90s to mid 10s) has gotten great reviews, on Metacritic a majority of them hold a rating of over 80% with almost none (Aside from GBTG) of their titles falling below 75% overall. You must have some godly expectations for a "decent" game.
Viva Pinata and Kameo tend to disagree.
Donkey Kong 64, put that on XBL. But is that possible? I know Rare made the game but doesn't Nintendo own the character? Diddy Kong Racing. Same problem as Donkey Kong. I'd like to see a new Conker, or Diddy Kong racing 2.
I'm sure DK64 is in the works for a port, but it will be on the Virtual Console. Rare has the ability to put games there even though they are owned by Microsoft, seeing how they put all 3 DKCs up a while back. Nintendo owns everything Donkey Kong-related and I can guarantee they aren't going to give up those rights and allow a XBLA port. I really wish they would let Rare release Goldeneye on XBLA, though. I think they even offered to put it on VC and XBLA simultaneously but Nintendo turned them down. Maybe they can just remake it with hi-def graphics for 360? I don't think Nintendo could do anything then...
Donkey Kong is a Nintendo franchise so if anything it will only be on the Virtual Console.
Nintendo's biggest mistake was selling Rare and it was Microsoft's mistake for buying them
How? Rare is making Microsoft money regardless, if all their titles tanked financially then maybe your statement could have some credibility but that's not the case. Combined Kameo and Perfect Dark payed back a majority of that $300 or so million Microsoft payed for them.
Killer Instinct 3 or a new Conker, please. I wouldn't turn down another Kameo game, either. And more XBLA ports...KI or Conker would be very welcome.
I wouldnt mind Perfect Dark 2, I maybe the only one who enjoyed that game when the 360 originally launched.
Don't worry I enjoy it as well, surprisingly it still gets decent online play from people.
PD was ok...I cant say it was horrible...they just kept the mechanics I found to old school....the running felt like you were moving in slow motion...but the weapons were sweet......im sure if they worked on it some more they could bring PD back
Perfect Dark 3 Conker Kameo 2 Killer Instinct 3 Force Gemini 2 Battletoads This are the games i want.
These are the games Rare as made for the 360, can you honestly say your excited for whatever these guys are planning after these past releases? Banjo: Nuts and Bolts Kameo Viva Pinata Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise Ok some of these got decent reviews but seriously those games were mostly average, thats why I don't get why people are excited for their new project. There's plenty of devs who make games equal to these but when they announce a new game it doesn't get a second thought until release, that's what I don't get.
And i played the hell out of them. I love the Art style they provide. It's different from everyone else. Edit- You're also missing PDZ.
I have all four of those games and yes, I'm extremely excited to see what they're doing next.
Well it doesn't look like you even played those games since their actually solid titles. Again I'm asking you how your coming up with these "average" accusations when critics were raving about them, despite what fanboys might tell you on this site anything below a 9 is not a failure.
Killer Instinct 3 is the only title i'm looking forward to.
There probably working on KI3, im guessing it will be unveiled some time in 09. Really looking forward to it!
a new Killer Instinct! That would just devastate the spiteful heart of mine and many other multi accounted Sony [email protected] here on N4G. Boy we would have trouble putting some type spin on that one, though a nice RROD comment always shows our intelligence.
Banjo flopped in quality, so don't get too excited for Rare's new title.
Bongo Jazouye 2? the 1st one was such a great achievement, take that LBP! since you insist: Rare Ring Of Death Red Rare And Dying (almost :) gee... these hasbeens are so uninspiring
A better question would be: Who cares? Rare has squandered any positive rep accumulated in the 1990s. The thought pattern has turned from, "Oh wow! Rare is putting out a new game! I've got to go buy that!" to "Rare is working on a game? Oh? It's a sequel to one of their classic franchises? No thanks. I'll pass. Although, I'm curious how they're going to botch it this time." I've got to admit. There's this nagging thought in the back of my mind, "a new Battletoads would be so cool!" But then I think about so many ways that Rare could make it go sour. I'm just so thankful that I can continue to dream. Rare is no longer as relevant of a developer as they used to be. And it's a crying shame that Square is going in the same direction.
Why do people care about Rare? Name one good game by them and don't say Goldeneye or Killer Instinct (go back and play those games, they're horrible). I think everyone's been disappointed by every next-gen release by them (Kameo, PDZ, Banjo) so what does it matter anymore?
hmm name one good game by them.... other then goldeneye or killer instinct......hrmmmmmmmmmmmmmm mm tuffffff one............. Battletoads, Conker, Perfect Dark, Donkey Kong 64, Banjo 64 good enough for you???? Now im not a fan of most of their newer games...but from what ive heard Kameo is a pretty sweet game if your into that stuff...and some people tend to like viva pinata...go figure....
I would love to see a Conker, that was my favourite game from Rare.
I think Jet Force Gemini needs to make it's long awaited return!
