Rare.....such a great company back in the day. Battletoads was a hard bitch, the DK games were awesome, Goldeneye 007 was the best shooter available only on consoles, Banjo Kazooie was amazing for its time, Killer Instinct was an ULTRA sucess in the arcades and at home, and Conker was the shit! Man, great games.

Now lets go to 2002. Rare was purchased by Microsoft. Their first game I think was Grabbed by the Ghoulies. A good game but not great. They remade Conker. It was ok but there was alot of changes from the N64 version. Now came the 360 era. They made Kameo. It was ok. Then they made Perfect Dark Zero. It was average. What happened? Then they made Viva Pinata. Awesome game but its not a classic. It had a sequel and a party game.
Now this is the bad part. The next game in the Banjo Kazooie franchise is......a car/flight simulator or something like that? ????????? Why? Why no platforming? We need a game like that.
Now, was there a new Killer Instinct game after Gold (1996)? NO! That game kicked ass with all of the combos and that. But Microsoft doesnt want that game to be published. Rare WANTS to make the sequel and port KI to XBLA.
Conker.....best game on the N64 IMO. Such an awesome game. All the swearing, pissing, the shit monster.....that was awesome! Why no sequel? It got a 9.9 by IGN!!! Damn. And why censoring the Xbox version? Seriously Microsoft?
Battletoads......why no new game? Its been like 13 or more years since the last game was released. A port of the NES Battletoads will be awesome.....with online. IDK if Rare still owns the franchise.

I need Rare to come back to its roots. They were sooo boss. Best dev of the 1990s IMO.

From what I understand, most of the old Rare developers left when MS bought them.

Dude, it's part racing type of game, part platforming. It's both. Wink

I agree man. I hope Rare come back. I'm probably one of the very few PD fans that enjoyed PDZ. I will be very happy if they made a conker sequel. That game needs a sequel.
