Rare loved easter eggs. They would put sooo many in there old games! Whether it was disturbing looking rock formations or pirates complaining about how they were once in this fine game. It was just simply a joy looking for all the hidden details Rare would put in there games and seeing all the references they make.
Many of Rare's old franchises cameo in each others. Here are some examples:
Vela from Jet Force Gemini in Banjo Tooiehttp://www.vizzed.com/vizzedboard/retro ... _55_10.jpg

Several Rare games on this shelf in Grabbed By The Ghoulieshttp://www.capsulecomputers.com.au/wp-c ... oulies.png
I've also noticed how in almost every game Rare developed, they would always hide there awesome iconic logo hidden all over the game. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/e ... ogoOld.jpg
A good example is on the title screen for Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest where there is one hidden inside the chest and on Dixie's hat. http://i.ytimg.com/vi/-ixTFNEk3qU/maxresdefault.jpg

Is that a Rare T Shirt in Grabbed by The Ghoulies?http://www.raregamer.co.uk/staf/Servant5.png
Rare once had a strange website Mascot by the name of...Mr. Pants. He was a poorly drawn...man in pants and he would make cameos in Rare games all the time! He even stared in his own game! Here are some examples:

These are all just minor examples of easter eggs in Rare's games. Literally every game they made would do this.
Reason why I'm discussing this, is because I hope Playtonic Games does the same thing! I want to see the Playtonic Logo http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/pro ... 0212193206
hidden everywhere in there games. I want to see there games make cameos in each others. And if they were to ever develop a weird mascot, I want him to be in every bloody game they make! Its just I really loved the feeling of how every game Rare made, they were all connected to one another in a way that made it seem as if there was just one big Rare universe. I want Playtonic to provide the same feeling.
Do you guys think Playtonic Games will do this? Didn't they already say there characters will cameo in each others games or how certain characters in Project Ukulele will be stars in later games they make? I truly hope this is all true and I cant wait to keep my eyes peeled and look for every bloody easter egg they put in there games.
