Unseen64 looks into the canceled sequel to Perfect Dark.
screw Rare, someone needs to buy the Perfect Dark IP. If that were the case I would hope that Crytek would buy the IP so that Crytek UK could create a sequel. Crytek UK used to be Free Radical and they made Timesplitters and a lot of the devs were the guys who made the original Perfect Dark and Goldeneye. One can dream eh? :)
If MS shut down Rare Nintendo would probably end up buying them because regardless of where the developers went Banjo, Conker, Perfect Dark etc are all seen as Nintendo's games by a lot of people. It was Nintendo that made Rare what they were and it was their touch that made them stand out. It was clear the second Grabbed By the Ghoulies came out.
Yeah that too I guess, but Nintendo would need to build up a Rare team again
Its still so sad what happened to Rare, because its not like they were just any average studio, they were one of the best, and now they've fallen all the way down to making Wii Sports ripoffs for Kinect..
If Nintedno were to buy Rare do you really think we'll see a Conker Game again. I don't think Nintedno would like a foul mouthed drunk squirrel on their casual friendly console......It would probably be the center of a news story knowing the Media
the gun designs are sweet
Figures, all the good games get canceled :(
They should make Perfect Dark more like Deus Ex in terms of story and mission structure. I mean the last game had a story element focused on "deathmatch". That just seemed lazy.
I don't believe it was officially canceled. In development they shifted to a mech-based game and eventually fizzled out the team working on it. I would hope that one day they pick up production on both PD2 and the mech IP in the future. Rare has stated that while their general focus is Kinect, they will not be Kinect exclusive. They have 2 studios now so it's reasonable to think that one studio is Kinect-based while the other is not. But who knows?
Ah, Perfect Dark. One of my favourite games of all time. I bought the HD remake on XBLA without hesitation and I love it. PDZ was just meh. I'm sure one day there will be another Perfect Dark game.
I wonder if this was the big announcement major Nelson mentioned a few years back. If so such ashame just like no word on killer instinct ever or even a kameo 2.
A non Joanna Dark Perfect Dark? Mechs? Hmm, not sure how I feel about that. It seems to have been Perfect Dark in name only from everything that the video says, perhaps the cancellation was for the better then? I'd like to see a new Perfect Dark game from Rare and I doubt the entire studio is dedicated to Kinect titles. With the recent news that Rare's future could be tied to Kinect Sports 2, I hope some serious restructuring is done to ensure these type of titles can get out (assuming the cancellations are on Rare's side). Ensemble showed that even the most prestigious studios can close down at MGS, ex Ensemble devs peg their closure at the number of internal projects they started and canceled so who knows what's next at Rare. I do hope for the best though.
I wish someone else bought Rare Nintendo....or even Sony Least them they would be a respected company again. Would love to see a Conker Sequel on the PS3....I would say something about Nintendo but something about a Banjo/Perfect Dark/Conker game for the Wii just dosen't seem right.
nintendo had rare, they sold them to ms. i think just about any other publisher could do wonders for rare, get them doing something other than kinect minigame collections, and avatar clothing. they keep saying they're happy, but i bet they'd rather be making a real game.
Hey at least you got Kinect sports.
I don't think rare have made bad games since moving to ms bit the problem for them is that the 360 has been all about dos games and rare have made games for everyone and this has been the down fall form them. Pfdzero was a ok game but was an early 360 game and I think they put it together as they did not have halo for it. I think now ms has kinect we will see some more good games like viva n banjo again but I do hope ms let them do a core game even if it is a new up as i would love to if it they have still got it in them but if ms let them bring out ki and pd then ms would have another 2 big names to there console. Lets hope we see something big at e3.
IT got cancelled for a reason it sucked just face it rare lost it Nuts and Bolts should already showed us.
So Sad. Perfect dark was my favorite N64 game. Not trying to start a flame war, but serious M$, WTF? Why... Rare could probally have made many awesome games for the Wii.
