    Is RARE even around anymore?

    They made one perfect dark game for the 360 and that was the last i heard from them. What a dumb move, boy i miss the old DK games... and perfect dark and bond. Just think if RARE was still with nintendo we wouldn't have to deal with these stupid dk spinoffs. Don't they realize no one buys these games? Yeah i miss the platformers though...

    Rare is still around. They just make stupid games :P

    They're the ones who made Viva Pinata and they're making a new Banjo Kazooie for the 360.

    Rare had an argument with Nintendo a while back which is why the new Banjo game is for the 360 and not the Wii.
    It's also why no new Donkey Kong Country or other DK games have been released that were actual platformers.



    Well do you?

    Also, the reason they're microsoft exclusive is because the owners sold a 51% share to Microsoft. This means that they have a controlling part, and nothing would get published on a Nintendo console anyway, so Nintendo sold their shares in Rare.

    Also, they remade conkers bad fur day (I think they renamed it Live and reloaded or something like that). Never played it. CBFD was just so awesome. Don't think it had the same success with the xbox though.


    Mail me if you want to add me on either the Wii or the 360.

    You may think they have been dead however they have been working on new projects and franchises such as Viva Pinatina and the off spin 'party animals'.

    The new Banjo Kazooie is also in development for the 360, a game which some may argue would fit better with the Wiis audience.

    oh that's right Viva Pinata, conkers bad fur day some subtitle and banjo. That's pretty bad though. Althought the nintendo CBFD WAS really funny, i still play it! Yeah those sound more like wii games.

    On another note, Nintendo can still make platformer games with DK, Rare couldn't copyright that right?

    The Donkey Kong franchise belongs to Nintendo but the brand of the country games lay with Rare I believe.

    I think Nintendo could make a Donkey Kong platformer just as long as it wasn't 'Country'.

    Rare could still make a DK game, it would just have to be on the DS. (Microsoft freely lets Rare work on the DS, because it's not a direct competitor to the 360.)


    Thanks Star Striker for the sig.
