Are there any fans of Rare on here?

Knowing that there are fans of every{but mostly a few} Lucasarts adventure games on here, I figured I would bring up a company that was once with Nintendo but sadly enough is in need of a serious rescue that company is Rare ltd{known in the past in the generation of the SNES and n64 games as Rareware}. This company has been known for bringing back Donkey Kong...But also giving us a bear and a bird, a james bond FPS that has been wildly considered as the best FPS, and a drunken squirrel who clearly is a complete badass.

So are there even any fans of Rareware on here? My favorite games are DKC and Bad fur day...Alot of people say Rare was better off with Nintendo, I'm one of them.

  • accept it as cannon or not, it's still not Banjo-Threeie,

    Rare is awesome, they can pull stuff off. they can pull off an actual Banjo-Threeie

  • Oh yeah, I'm a fan of Rare to. I loved the DKC series, Killer Instinct, Banjo-Kazooie, Jet Force Gemini, & Perfect Dark games.

    I know and am still waiting for an actual threeie(but believe me from what I heard there were worse ideas for nuts n bolts like it just being a remake of kazooie with a few changes) which I heard they did start on(and if so stop n swop II)

  • Is it even possible to be a fan of Rare at this point? What are you enjoying? Viva Piñata: Party Animals?

  • I loved Rare back in the day. Their N64 library is nothing short of excellent! But the minute they were bought out from under Nintendo, it was allll over if you ask me. It's too damn bad, I feel like Rare is better suited to Nintendo's audience and philosophy than they are to Microsofts...

  • @plrichard said: I really don't know of any Rare games made for Nintendo systems that I didn't love, except maybe Star Fox Adventures. But that's only because I never really got to play it very much.


    I beat that one, and you didn't miss much with Star Fox Adventures. It became apparent to be quite early on that this game was targeted toward young children. Suffice it to say I was disappointed.

  • I always enjoyed their DKC games, I guess Conker was fun but it was to violent for a plushy red squrriel.

    WOW, well done. Rare didn't make Party Animals, Krome Studios did, who happen to be from the other side of the world.

    I liked it, apart from the extremely repetititive battles (i can still hear "Heh, yah, huh!" looping in my head!), and the lack of variation in the VO ("you don't have enough scarabs!" is heard alot, usually in quick succession. It would have been nice if they had recorded the line a few extra times)
    They had some imagination in the level design though, i thought.

    Given that it was my first starfox game (well, starwing(the original SNES game) was, but i didn't realise that at the time)), i wasn't comparing it to the other games, and saw it as it was.

  • My first screen name was Clanker.

    My favourite memory of that Banjo-Kazooie forum, which isn't hard because I think it was full of people who weren't particularly tolerant of eleven-year-olds with no social skills, was when a regular whose topics never had anything to do with their titles posted one with the subject "Rare developing for XBOX?" I don't remember the exact words of the responses, but they were along the lines of "I practically had a heart attack until I saw who it was." and "Don't scare me like that!".

    Hilarious.
