Rare: Kameo should have been 'scrapped'

Rare lied to kids about fairies. Not our words - straight from the horse's mouth.

The UK studio has admitted that it wishes it had "scrapped everything and started again" during development of Kameo: Elements Of Power for Xbox - and that it tried to con gamers about the titular protagonist's race.

Kameo was a good game. A new Kameo is definitely preferable to Kinect Sports and whatever other Kinect related crap Rare is probably working on.

Kameo wasn't bad at all, you just couldn't go in with high expectations. I really wouldn't mind seeing Rare get scrapped altogether now.

I am waiting for the day they release a new KI that completely ruins my memories of that awesome series.

Lightsaber2938d ago

Well Rare is actually kind of right. If kameo looked more like say havenly sword then it would of sold more. I'll admit that I wasnt interested in Kameo at 1st cause it did look like a lil kids game. However not having anything else to play I decicde to give it a try and I loved the game.

However I guess that pretty much kills any hope of a Kameo 2 and that totally sucks

djevolve2938d ago

launch conker 2 and shut up rare.

Godmars2902938d ago

And yet you're saying such a thing in the comment section of an article where Rare themselves says otherwise. That they conned gamers into liking it, and here you are continuing to like it.

What does that say?

Xeoset2938d ago

Because it was actually a decent platformer with new concepts that made it fun?

Y'know when you bought that PS3 at launch? Did you bother to listen to anyone at all, or did you just hang onto Kaz's words and get that second job?

One man != whole studio. This is News4Playstation3 though, I would expect no less than hyperbole.

radphil2938d ago

One guy =/= whole studio.

You can't con someone into liking something. You can only con someone into doing something they don't like.

Did you parents con you into eating vegetables as a kid? Or did they just force you to try it and you found out they weren't all that bad?

ico922938d ago

i disagree Kameo was a great game, but if they think that should have been scrapped what on earth do they have to say about kinect sports and party animals ?

Elven62938d ago

Rare didn't make Party Animals, that was Krome.

AngryFork2938d ago

Rare should be scrapped, or what's left of it after Microsoft's raping.

Gen0ne2938d ago

Glad you said that before me. I was scared to. It's true.

Montoya2938d ago

I think this makes it pretty clear Rare has NO IDEA what their doing anymore. Kameo was/is a fun game, it was easily the 360 first good title.

nupes982938d ago

I agree. It was a good game especially for a launch title. It is 5 years but back then, alot of people were impressed with it technically and graphically

ShadowCK2938d ago

Have you guys even played Kameo? It was horrible.

Don't believe I haven't played it? Look at my Gamertag.

No kameo was a poorly developed title, rushed out by underachieving developers which signalled the start of a downward decent for rare. This article say's it all, a microsoft first party developer lying and exaggerating, hmm i'm getting a touch of deja vu here!

dirthurts2938d ago

I loved the game.
It was unique and did a lot of things no other game had done before. You'll need to make some specific points against the game before I'll consider your comment anything but ignorant.

Arsenic132938d ago

Everything since Kameo should have been scrapped.


Natsu X FairyTail2938d ago

I dont know what the hell is going down @ MS and Rare but they seem to be making all the wrong descisions. they dont give a f1ck about the fans. Kameo was a really good game. I dint own it but I still had fun playing it back then.
