So now I'm gonna have to buy an Xbox 1, great.

They did make KI 3, and as far as I know that was ok. I just hope they don't pull another Nuts and Bolts out of their sleeve and mess up the franchise beyond compare. If they are going to make a new Blast Corps, it would probably be a digital download only. I would be Extremely excited for a new Conker game, I would be going crazy if that happened. I remember at E3 they showed a video of Conker and I was going crazy u til I realized he was gonna be DLC for some game I can't remember the title of.

I pray all this happens!
Long Live Rareware!

Yes yes yes. I read that earlier and was quite happy. Lots of good game franchises available to build on.

Would really love a new Perfect Dark game. That would be glorious :D

in this article "LINK" they say they may make perfect dark as a third person shooter. What do you guys think about that? Be a mistake in my view. Hopefully they announce a new banjo at E3 but back to its roots would be perfect.

saw this and thought it way funny

I had to check that out as well, Cabanon, and discovered that they are running $15 apiece right now. I'd love to get them but hopefully they'll go on sale at some point.

They look pretty good on the 360 (there's a demo of the first one) and as far as I know banjo tooie runs at a much improve frame rate. I always found the frame rate to be a problem on the :N64:

I already knew it was only a matter of time before I'd also need to invest in an Xbox one. Hopefully I get a while before that needs to happen :lol: ! I honestly was really close to buying the Call of Duty X1 because it looks amazing, but I'll wait along for the next cool limited edition.

Conker Edition X1!? :wub: Ok, ok, stop dreaming. :facepalm:

I wish they'd re-release Goldeneye with the exact same level design but just updated graphics.

Everyone PLEASE remember that literally no-one from the golden age Rare is still working there.
Hence their anemic efforts of late.
So i just hope they don't spoil any of their old franchises and just leave them alone.

Sadly Rare doesn't have any rights to Goldenye or James Bond, so if they did it they would have to rename it and change the plot.

Why does everyone hate on Nuts and Bolts?

Im a massive fan of the originals and I thought it was just brilliant.
You perhaps have to be a fan of building the vehicles to enjoy it, but other that, the characters, graphics, music, the Rare Humour.
Excellent game.

I second this. As most of you know, the original Banjo Kazooie is my favorite game of all time, and I really liked Nuts and Bolts. While I understand some people might be disappointed about the fact that it's not a classic platformer like they wanted it to be, I think it was brilliant, and I encourage everyone to give it a second chance. :D

That doesn't mean Rare can't produce quality products anymore. A company doesn't stop or hit a wall because a few people leave. When Miyamoto and friends will leave Nintendo, doesn't mean Nintendo will stop producing quality Nintendo titles either.

Rareware's "anemic efforts", as you call them, were actually games that sold extremely well and were beneficial to the company (I'm talking about Kinect Rivals games, those sold a lot better than people assume). From the news I've read in the last weeks, their next game is something "deliciously rare", as I believe Phil Spencer put it, and I can't wait to see it!
