Victor Cardoso charts the rise, fall and subsequent mini-revival of UK developer Rare. A studio that has had its fair share of triumphs and false dawns in the past.
Need that Battletoads on the X1. What is M$ waiting on?
Yeah men give a battletoads remastered colection ...include battletoads and double dragon too.
@Minute Man 721 Man, as crazy as may sound, i don´t want RARE to make a Battletoads games. I would rather task them with a new true AAA Perfect Dark game and give Battletoads to be developed by Studio MDHR in an amazing metroidvania style. :)
I welcome a new Perfect Dark
Whatever made Rare special in its prime? Is long, long gone in the people who have since moved on. Rare is merely a name. Anyone who thinks this thing is "resurrected", well, I guess you can't tell the difference between resurrection, and a shambling corpse I suppose. Rare is not "resurrected" by any means.
I think Rare is still in the "Ruin" phase, which no resurrection in sight.
What resurrection? The original Rare has been gone for a long time, this version of the studio is, I dont know what it is lol
I would love to see a resurrection of Rare, but Sea of Thieves ain't gonna cut it and it won't happen on Microsoft's watch. They were in their prime in NES, SuperNES and N64 days in my opinion, just thinking about them makes me nostalgic for Solar Jetman, Snake Rattle n Roll and RC ProAM. What a shame to see what became of one of the best Devs in the business 😭
RARE is Dead and has been so since 2002.
Just give me a Kameo part 2 and even a Viva pinata . I believe that rare still has it but needs to do some soul searching 1st.
kameo and viva piñata were very underrated last gen. I really enjoyed both of them
Um resurrected?? RARE has been on a downfall since Microsoft bought them Nintendo had hit after hit with RARE their games sold millions on N64 if Sea of Thieves is a resurrection for RARE whoever came up with this article is delusional.
Honestly viva pinyata was great and nuts and blots was not as bad as people claim they had a few other gems as well like kameo. SOT looks and feels like a rare game it just lacks content with a road map released thats just what they are doing they dont need to be "old rare" to make great games i dont know why people keep acting like they need to be
You call Sea of Thieves a sign of resurrection
Well, Rare Replay was pretty awesome though. Lol.
