I want to kill Rare for not releasing new Conker 2 or new Killer Instinct..

..and of course re-releasing Conker 3D 3ds :)

Since the key developers for rare has left the studio what remains is just the name.

Viva pinata was actually pretty good and though disappointed by the new banjo kazooie ive liked the concept of making crazy cars, planes etc.

It isn't their fault, they have to do what they're told. Right now, MS wants Kinect games, and they had started to work on a new Perfect Dark, but MS wanted Kinect games instead.

Hopefully, Microsoft realises the potential of remaking a lot of Rare's classics from the Nintendo 64 era and how successful it could be.

Take a good look at Sony and the releases of God of War, God of War II and the upcoming release of Jak & Daxter. It is working great for them, so it baffles me as to why Microsoft continue ignoring some true gaming classics.

Viva Pinata Kinect please, you would think it's a no-brainer given the efforts to promote the 'family friendly' originals a few years back.

Which were the best Rare titles in quite a wee while.. (maybe ever?)

Not gonna happen. If the series has or had quality, substance and charm, Rare probably won't make a game for it. Hence all this Kinect garbage they've been making for Microsoft.

I'm so waiting for Nintendo to come to the rescue and snatch these guys up before Microsoft ruins them like half of the 1st party studios they've owned.

A new VP seems a lot more likely than your Nintendo buy-out scenario, to be fair.

Kinect Sports has quality, substance and charm - so did Nuts & Bolts.

Their reputation has been blackened since joining MS but the games haven't dipped in quality.

In fact we can be thankful they're not churning out mind-numbing, empty-world collect-a-thons like they were in the failed N64 years.

What a soul-crushing job.
