Why does MS need to restrict Rare to this Kinect crap :(
Sitris  +   1845d ago
For once a actually agree with you conlols
Funny cause i usually agree to balance out the disagrees as generally you don't actually say all that much bad stuff haha but in seriousness, why MS why? They are a hugly talented team and i got the feeling of greatness from them in Banko Kazooie but i got the impression of MS pressure as well to have the creater car feature oh well. They will have a killer app revealed tomorrow, i have no doubt.

Oh, Rare, how you've fallen so far from grace. May you rest in peace. When Microsoft picked you up, you were destined to be doomed.

Edit: For the disagreers: almost all of the studios that Microsoft has picked up have shut down or separated.

I agree its a shame they are a shadow of there former self. Most of there best staff do work work for Crytek now though. They left to form Free Radical then got bought up after going bust by Crytek.

damn. Remember how awesome rare was when they were doing snes games? how many of you guys literally had your tongue drop to the floor when you first had a glimpse of killer instinct at the arcades?

Oh Well
Rare hasnt made a decent game since Kameo and that was over shadowed by the abysmal Perfect Dark Zero.

Have fun making Pack in sports titles.

Which will probably make them more money than anything they've done before.

If Kinect's a big hit, that is.

That is some of what your gonna see on mtv or nick at night on Tuesday. I've been reading articles all over the net and have yet to come to a positive one.

Someone help me. I must be looking in the wrong place.

@Sitris I totally agree. Tomorrow is the day though. I pretty sure they'll have hands on units on site. I'm intrigued

So any hopes for Killer Instinct 3 are dead?

qface64  +   1845d ago
question is would you actually want it?
rare hasn't had a good track record lately
heck they would probably make KI3 vehicle based the way they are doing things
colonel179  +   1845d ago
yeah, you are right. I think it would be better to remember the game as it is, that have it ruined like Banjo & Kazooie
jaosobno  +   1845d ago
Rare still makes games? Oh wait! Now I remember, they only make crappy ones lately.

Well have fun, it's probably Viva Kinectata.

Look at Rare, reduced to imitating Nintendos ideas. First avatars (miis) now this Wii Sports blatant ripoff. Its pitiful & its no wonder Nintendo got rid of them.
Michael-Jackson  +   1845d ago
HAHA, a side project.
LeonSKennedy4Life  +   1845d ago
To go from Donkey Kong Country 2 and Conker's Bad Fur Day to THIS...

I miss Rare. :(
LeonSKennedy4Life  +   1845d ago
Or not?
TheLeprachaun  +   1845d ago
This better not be the proper Rare game the countdown was for. I've got all three consoles, and for the better part of 4 years, I've used my xbox far more than my ps3 and wii. But you know, if Microsoft doesn't get its act together, I think that my xbox will be the one gathering dust this time around.

Microsoft you can suckmycawk
This is borderline cruelty. This would be the equivalent of a record label forcing an incredibly progressive and technically-demanding band like Dream Theater start writing 3 minute long radio rock songs instead of their normal 20 minute epics.

Fuck you microsoft.
