VG247: Microsoft's released the first in-game trailer of Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts.
i kno its a kids game but the graphics to me look kinda shallow in detail
Wow, I thought there was quite a bit of depth, for something more cel-shaded. Oh a side note, the pokeballs and the Mario were hilarious.
I can see what you mean the textures look a little low-res, and the floor texture looks completely flat (i.e. no bump mapping) in some areas. But bear in mind that this is work in progress so it will be better in the final version. The workshop thing looks like a copy of the Gummi Ship thing in Kingdom Hearts, also the title "Nuts & Bolts" sounds like it should be a Ratchet & Clank game...seriously.
The water looks nice!
I don't know. Judging from that trailer, this looks more like a spin off title that a Banjo sequel. Well kudos to rare for some originality but can't say it got me excited. Wasn't really excited to begin with anyway. The part where 1 ship broke off and formed a type of jet was pretty cool though
I was kinda hyped after the screenshots leaked, but this trailer left me with a huge ? on my forehead. -EDIT- Well my nephew liked it and that's the demographic this is mainly focused towards so it's A-OK.
Ahhh, something different.
Horrible framerate (looks like 15 fps) PS2.5-ish graphics Gameplay looks... um... I dunno what the hell we're supposed to do in this game. Create vehicles and drive around?
oh rare...what have you done? please tell me this is for xbox live arcade edition and not full retail game...if someone told me this was n64 footage, I would have believed them...only hope is that it must be early alpha stage footage...look where super mario galaxy was and ratchet and clank reached...this looks like it is from two generations ago... Edit: after watching the trailer more then a couple of times..I think that if they're going after lbp i.e. it is going to be marketed as the x360 equivalent to LBP, they really will get owned...seems like they're having a go at mario too...thinking big helps I suppose...I'm still muddled...why would they not turn up the heat on visual and sound side...both were really, almost 'garage' quality...here's to hoping that this is really early...
yeah i know it's not finished or anything, but questions to ask yourself --------who would get excited for this game except kids? ---------if they will make it hella easy? --------- will sell or not? I respect gears and ninja gaiden and everything, but this is not AAA or AA title in any aspect. MICROSOFT is aiming for the kids, not anyone on this site.
Yeah.... actually I agree that I was more excited for the game before I saw that trailer. And whoever mentioned the Gummi Ship from Kingdom Hearts is right on, it immediately reminded me of that too. I was hoping the big brass gameplay mechanic Rare was touting after the screens had been leaked, was co-op platforming. That would be something to be excited about, this ...I'm not sure now.
I was hoping for a more traditional platformer.
i dont care what anyone says , this game looks awsome. But i do wish they released a new conkers bad fur day :)
this game does look great.
Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh thats not cel-shading. At all. As for those who plan on buying this game....you have fun with that.
I find it funny that everyone is talking about the technical parts of this game and no one has said anything about the gameplay or does it look fun. It looks like it could be fun but I would like to see some more gameplay other than driving around.
Hehe, looks fun! Looks like there are quite a few mini games if the trailers anything to go by? One to watch for sure!
First let me say this ..did anyone see them take a shot a Nintendo? look at like the last 15 seconds...they show you a picture of Mario then they Shot a Missle at him and took him down ....lmao if only they were really competition (Rare taht is)
dear god yes, looks fun as hell plus i can play FOOTBALL in it hahaha (soccer to you yanks)
I just wish the video quality wasn't so poor/pixelated.
Very impressive.Flying,driving,sail ing and still retaining the traditional platformer elements that made the original great. Great to also see the music notes as well.
wtf is that there is more racing than platforming
you have seen 2 mins...how can you come up with that conclusion? if you have xbox live go to inside xbox and watch the interview with Rare that has just bee posted, it shows more footage plus the dev saying that its mostly platforming with the option of flying and driving
*swooshes off to Xbox Live*
so these games hold no sway on me not to say some ppl dont like em because some ppl do the question is is the 360 user base this type of gamer?
20 mill sold nearly im sure there is people there that just dont like FPS..same could be said about the PS3 at the moment so that question is irrelevant
Well Viva Pinata has sold over 1.2million copies with very little promotion from Microsoft.So if that game can do that then this will definately do more and expect alot of marketing for this game. And honestly, i am temporarily sick of FPS.i want more variety and i have not played a platformer in ages so will definately pick this up.
I agree in that I'm personally not interested in this game just like Ratchet didn't do anything for me either... but I'm sure alot of younger gamers like my nephews (& some older too) will love this game. I think it will sell very well actually.
Viva Pinata had very little promotion are you joking they produced an entire tv series based around the game to launch with the game.
looks fun, love the first banjo game, i have high expetations for this one.
Same here, it looks better and better every time they release information. There is much yet to be learned, like some details on multiplayer. Oh, and I _LOVED_ the Launch-platform-ejects-flyer only to shoot that big mario. Did you notice the big mario seemed to be constructed by different items stacked? like a big pile of "stuff". Looks spectacular.
the old Banjo's were fun this one looks terrible
Yh i dont understand what its all about, is it a racer or platformer ? Oh and that music was disgusting.
It looks like mix of several different genre's.(GTA PLATFORMER RACER SHOOTER FLIGHT SIMULATOR...LEGO ) The vehicle customization reminds me of the kingdom hearts gummi ship. It will be interesting too see if they can put all this stuff together and make it work.(fun) But does it excite me...no. It doesn't me get all worked up like mario galaxy did...if you can even compare the two. I will say this it looks great graphic wise. All thats left now is whether its fun or not.
LOL OMG Mario got OWNED
I wonder if banjo will sell more than any Mario title.
Now, I've said a lot of bad things about the Wii in the past as I really don't rate the machine very highly as a piece of hardware, but Mario on the other hand is King of Platformers. That isn't to say Banjo & Kazooie 3 won't be good, but Galaxy is a phenomenal game that even on the Wii plays like a dream. It is so innovative and has so many great ideas, plays so well and the control is so tight that it makes most other developers look bad. That's not to say BK3 won't be better, who knows right, its not even finished yet, BUT it is going to have a real challenge to come close to Galaxy.
I didn't even notice that.
at the end of the vid, where Mario get blown up....get it? *EDIT* did you even watch the video dj?
No, DJ probably didnt watch the video. He and the gaggle of regular Sony Cheerleaders just pile into every Xbox 360 thread to trash every title. Its ruined N4G completely.
Looks really fun. I just wish that everything wasnt so square-ish but that doesnt really matter.
Errrr???? A racer?
oh my god that looks like so much crap
if that looked like crap then rachet and clabnk must look like sh1t
@ nevel Did u just look in the mirror? Told ur mom not to do a chimp. Look how nevel turned out.
BABY Kazooie confirmed! Animation is shiat. Lighting is ok. Gameplay is viva pinata meats baby mario. Textures are bland and non existant. Visuals are sharp and ok I guess. Sound is baby. Soundtrack non existant. Have fun with BABY KAZOOIE, xbots.
That looks like a wii game LOL x360 suitable for wii games like Gears2 --ofcourse it is wii like vs KZ2
where is pog and mart, i wanna laugh at their faces.
They rly need some mip-mapping, or the next gen eqivlent. Also, I would agree that Banjo looks too 'boxy'. Other than that, it looks bright and colourful, and most importantly looks really fun to play, and for a game that has many months to be released, looks just fine graphically, apart from my critisms obviously. Agree?
I've never played the Banjo games, but this looks cool.
Call it a rent if only for the Mario reference that looked kinda hilarious.
Not really, who are they to make fun of mario?
Meh looks okey, Ratchet pawns this graphically, i am not going to comment gameplay yet, but i will give it a try once it gets released.
Doesnt' look to be the case here. The game seems sparse as far as action goes. Looks like you get to play in a ghost town. I think this will affect the gameplay.. Although the gameplay looks epic, i mean you can build your own ship from prefabricated parts! Now thats cool. And it appears you can stack up lego/crates with the physics. I cant pretend the graphics are amazing either when you have games that look like: http://www.britishgaming.co... Banjo right now is looking a bit brighter than: http://images.multiplayer.i... Doesn't appear that the Banjo is going to be confused or claimed fake/cgi screens like Ratchet was, thats for sure. [email protected] vespertine Use your ignore feature.
If you wish to talk about Ratchet and "CGI graphics", go to the open zone and let fans of Banjo discuss this video. Edit: I realize now that you did talk about the video in your comment, I apologize.
Anyone else have that main thought when watching?? I am optimistic, although i would have preffered a Kameo sequel.
IDK - Viva Piñata, IMO, looks better than that.
The Library is diverse. And the games itself is diverse.. So much fun... Custom games, Custom Vehicles, Platform Action!!! This game already Owns
Bioshock /mass effect and gears on PC too. Bioshock and Me are coming to PS3 too R&C looks much better than any x360 platformer. halo is gaylo3at 520p xbot...there is 0 games on x360. oh yea GEARS 2 looks like a piece of sh*t vs KZ2 http://www.gamersyde.com/ne...
Actually rachet and clank was just borrrring and crap
I bet it was boring for you, since thats all ya mommy will let you play.
My friend's girl got him Ratchet as a present for his new PS3. OMG. that game is so boring. prety graphics.. but very boring. But looking at Banjo... looks impressive + Gameplay.
Get a job kid and stop trolling on N4G
that realy impressed me alot and in 1:45 did you guys notice MARIO or is it just me.
and I'm sure other functions(customizations). Reminds me of the building different (Boats) for the new Zelda on NDS. It has a little bit of everything, the game looks fun. Gameplay is where it's at.
This game is a really big deal to me now.
what is the point of bringin up ratchet? This game is has more gameplay in it.. Just by looking at the trailers.
I'm sorry, but this would have been a great Nintendo title. I understand the hype for Gears of War 2, but this doesn't look all that great. I'm definitely going to at least rent this though to see what's it all about.
I'll wait until the trailer is out on gametrailers. Gamevideos always have sh!t quality.
Excited about. If you want an impressive platformer, get Mario Galaxy or Ratchet & Clank: Future. *EDIT: Well explain why you felt the game was boring. What did you think was wrong with it?
