Re: Playtonic might collaborate with Rare?

I think Banjo and Kazooie appearing on an Xbox One version would be terrific, especially if you could get Donkey and Diddy on the Nintendo version. It'll be the closest thing to a family reunion we could get between the two series.

Re: Homage-like references for the game

As many oblique references to their Rare days as they can legally get away with. Referencing the "island full of apes" just across the sea. Talking about the time that half-nude pasty Englishman in red underpants visited. A nameless goldfish who taps on his bowl three times (http://forums....

Re: Will a goldfish tap the side of his bowl three times?

Nah, they signed an exclusive contract with Nintendo and Retro come Tropical Freeze. Thrice-tapping goldfish, however, still have a wide open schedule.

Re: The "True" or "Good" Ending.

I've always thought that "100% Completion" endings are their most effective when they fundamentally alter something about the experience you just had, providing a cathartic release and making you want to immediately play the sequel. The two most effective endings from the Rare years? Donke...

Re: Playtonic's "Marvel Universe"

Yeah, Rare hit the ground running with this as soon as they finalized the details for Diddy Kong Racing. Hell, the Rare Shared Univese (dubbed the Donkey Kong Universe by us old-timers) is still a thing today even with the legal split between the Kongs and the rest of Rare's stable, with Nuts & ...

Re: Will a goldfish tap the side of his bowl three times?

Plus, blowfish, while popular among old Rare fans, don't have the same support that goldfish do. Hell, I think most of us became fans of Banjo-Kazooie because we saw that goldfish tapping his bowl three times in the background. I'm not wrong in that assumption, am I?

Re: Spiritual Successor to Donkey Kong Racing/Sabreman Stamp

Donkey Kong Racing is the most-mourned result of the Buyout for me and many other diehards. For years afterwards, all we cared about going into E3 was if we were going to see Sabreman Stampede. In fact, it's still a running joke today. So if Playtonic wanted to mimic the basic formula mapped out for...

Re: Will a goldfish tap the side of his bowl three times?

Maybe this goldfish could be visiting Ukulele Island® to escape his hellish life? Maybe he just wants to get away from 3D platforming weirdos who absent-mindedly abuse him, thinking he's finally found a safe haven.

And then he's put in a deep frier.

Re: Will a goldfish tap the side of his bowl three times?

I'm absolutely dead serious, and I'm hoping the entire Playtonic team reads this. I will pledge a disgusting amount of money if you guys promise that a thrice-tapping goldfish will find his way into the game. Seriously, if this were the ultimate stretch goal (over amiibo functionality, a physical re...

Re: Would you want the main characters to be in Smash Bros 5

No, but a Playtonic Universe fighting game is a definite possibility. Rare staffers are always the best at taking a Nintendo concept, putting it through a western blender and making something absolutely amazing. https://scontent-lga.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-frc3/v/t1.0-9/580220_505257579530096_742148660...

Re: Introductions!

Hello. I'm Hyle, the co-founder of long-running Rare fan community DK Vine as well as one of the writers of Lobodestroyo. I like long walks on the beach, romantic candlelit dinners and beak bombing random poo-poo to see if it will get me into the Ice Key cave.

Re: It hurts. (More unfortunate Banjo abuse)

It's just a tech demo made for the people at the show. All evidence points towards it not actually being a real game. You know what though? I'd be okay with Banjo-Kinectie. With the 3D platforming revival going on right now, it'd carve out a niche for old grandfather Banjo and show what Rare could d...

Re: Project Ukelele + Lobodestroyo crossover

The problem you have with something like this is what happens if Project Ukulele has a same type of animal species that Lobodestroyo has? Lobo stars Mutt, who is a wolf. Will Project Ukulele have wolves? One of the boss characters of Lobo is Gnawton Sawtooth III, who is a beaver. Will Project Ukulel...

Re: Anyone else notice the inexplicable lack of Googly eyes?

Yeah, eyes on literally everything including the clouds and sun are a Mario staple, not something Rare did. They'd have magically alive inanimate objects, sure (the haystacks in Diddy Kong Racing as one of the earliest examples), but there was always some magic practitioner like a Taj, Mumbo or Grun...
