"Robin Schuurman from Rare recently hinted at possibly working on the 3DS at some point."
Oh please let it happen! Gimme some more BlastCorps. That was such a fun and different game plus it would work well with 3DS since it had lots of buildings exploding and whatnot.
time to get moving
How could I forget this game?! It and Banjo were my favorites for N64. =)
How come there was never a sequel?
Holy crap dude, I loved that game so much, I had been trying to remember for years what it was even called though. Brings back good memories...
Man.. Blast Corps, I loved this game so much.. Always played it on my good ol N64. ;_; Especially loved the levels where you got to the hidden robot for an efficient destruction.
I loved the robots in that game.
Everyone else is.
Yeah even though Rare was purchased by MS it didn't stop them from making a few GBA and DS games over the last several years. They just can't make anything for a console besides Xbox 360. I hope we get something good out of it.
I had no idea Rare made games on other platforms besides xbox....Man I really want a 3DS. You know what's funny though people? Almost everybody says one reason why the psp isn't as successful as the ds is because most games for it are full on console game ports and it's like a ps2 in your pocket. Oddly enough most of the 3DS games I've seen announced are pretty much console ports and full-fledge console like games. I don't own a psp or a ds, but I think it may just be a "nintendo thing" if the same type of games were to make up the majority of the 3DS's games over the years. PSP catches too much flack imo. Just a thought.
And yes like said above...a new Blast Corps NEEDS to happen for 360. I want to tear up cities in HD or on 3DS even. Could be sick.
A lit of people hold onto Rare as a company like they do Sonic as a brand. Most of the time things end up just a bit disappointing but look at Sonic Colors! If Segs can whip back inti shape and deliver a great Sonic after years of junk then perhaps Rare can make a new totally bitchin Killer Instinct or something. Let's see it!
I am for a new killer instinct!!!
Stay away from this epic piece of hardware Rare. You're not the same Rare you used to be.
I'm sad to admit it but I've felt this way for a long time. They use to be right up there with Nintendo for f's sake! I mean DKC 1 and 2, Jet Force Gemeni, Goldeneye, PD, Blast Corps, Battletoats, RC Racer, etc., Killer Instinct those games were all 9's or better. Then again I also agree with allysaurus87 that Rare could always turn a Sonic and wow people once again. I'll hold my breath but hope at the same time.
Speaking of Donkey Kong I wonder what Rare's reaction will be to Retro Studios' Donkey Kong Country Returns and for that matter will Retro deliver as well as Rare did in the past?
Retro is the new Rare.
In some ways they really are!
The Rare of old was a company that whenever their games would come out I would rush to the store and get every one of them but ever since they were purchased by MS they weren't the same. They do own some amazing series so hopefuly they put them to good use!
If anything microsoft saved them, the gamecube era is when everything began falling apart for rare, and it hasn't been the same since. Starfox adventures for example. Sure i miss the n64 golden days but it's not microsofts fault. That said. I want Urchin. http://www.unseen64.net/200...
Oh god. BANJO ON THE GO!
Rare on GBA was pretty good so maybe this will turn out forthe best.
no surprise MS own Blue Dragon ip but still let miswalker made Blue Dragon for DS
So the like, ONE first party studio MS has is going to make games for the 3DS? Way to shaft us MS, way to shaft us.
Don't matter, port from Xbox or remake again!! or a sequel on 3DS!!! Please, it's one of the best games EVER!!! RARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
they will become just a game maker like ea.
Is it just me or did they forget to add in Goldeneye.
If Rare kept on making Bond games after Goldeneye/Perfect Dark then I think in this current day Bond games would be stellar. But hey the new Goldeneye 007 is awesome. :)
No dead nation :(
dunno about that, if retro DK is better than the first ones, then there is nothing that rare can do, after all, it was the support of nintendo that rare what it was... not exactly their games...
3DS FTW!!!! Can't say it enough
in 3D! come on!
get cracking on this one
