SheAttack: Microsoft gives us a peek at a VR platforming game taking place right in your living room.....starring a young Conker the Squirrel? Ya know, THE Conker. This is how we feel about it.
Microsoft should've used Banjo and Kazooie instead. They are much bigger icons in the world of gaming. They're also more subceptible to transformations from their home series, which could be used as a better way of showing off tech demos. Not to mention that the more Microsoft used Conker in a child friendly manner, the disheartening those kids will be when they find out about Conker's portrayal in BFD.
God no. The fact they have exploited him yet AGAIN to show some new tech/game is insulting to the fanbase after they said he could return. They first cancelled his sequel years ago They then do a remake and censor stuff out despite the age rating. They then do that shit in Project Spark...a little story which they have given up on and never finished. Now they've done the same thing and exploited Conker to try and sell something else. They just don't seem to understand this franchise at all. Banjo and Kazooie would have been better mascots BUT why don't they just come up with something brand new which will appeal to young kids, the same kids who are interested in Minecraft which you have also shown off for HoloLens
Agreed, completely. Conker is a foul mouthed yet amazingly funny bad a** And he's now... something else. It's literally the destruction of an icon.
Did you buy Rare Replay?
Its the 2nd time that Microsoft have played with fans of Conkers emotions by building some limited toned down garbage
That thing looks like Conkers ass, don't know what they were thinking :/
No. They could have easily made a sequel, with a proper design. But nope, they had to go and pull this BS. Microsoft want to get chewed out like in 2013 so bad.
AR not VR. This article hurt my head...
You beat me to it... Does the author even know the difference between AR and VR?
Young conker is a spit in the face to fans
Is this Conkers mentally retarded son that got addicted to crack?
LMFAO! I was like.."how come he got no gains doe?"
Wait, now he suddenly is their Mascot? Here I thought it was just a tech demo?
No, plus technically the mascot for Microsoft would be Master Chief.
i would say its more Cortana with the fact its on win10 now for about 80% of the old people who managed to upgrade are like. awe fredrick, come here, my computer is talking to me."
Listen- the character of Conker started off cutesy when the game was started in 1997: www.google.co.uk/search?q=con ker's+twelve+tales&biw = 1280&bih=931&source=ln m s&tbm=isch&sa=X&sq i =2&ved=0ahUKEwic0I2D2K7LAh X FOBQKHTWlB7YQ_AUICCgD Much to my disappointment, Twelve Tales: Conker 64 was reworked in to Conker's Bad Fur Day because Rare had got sick of making supposedly cutesy games (even though none of their games had ever been fully without some darkness anyway!) and they also were tapping in to a zeitgeist of gross out humour (South Park - or There's Something About Mary - for instance). What they should have done, in my opinion, is made Twelve Tales as originally planned with some of the level ideas (the old west for instance) and Conker's Bad Fur Day with some of the other level ideas (e.g. Dracula's house). People could choose, as appropriate, between the cute or the mature rated version (there could be a parental code in the box to satisfy parents who want to play the mature rated version on their own). Twelve Tales was brilliant looking- he wore a Davy Crockett hat, he was a gladiator. But once they went with CBFD, cutesy Conker was not allowed to be any more except on Gameboy Advance. And Conker has never sold massive numbers. So Conker could have been this dual personality character which would have had much more longevity. But, because they didn't, they are getting criticism for Young Conker which is understandable. If you want Young Conker to be a thing, please make the Twelve Tales code in to a game.
