64 bit Conker model looks way better! if the Hololens power was the reason for a complete character redesign... well this is sad!


This reminds me why I hate Microsoft so much... This makes me mad!

Unable to steal Tootie's likeness, Gruntilda forced Bubsy and Conker through the machine at the same moment. Though they both perished, Gruntilda came out the machine with no memory of her former self.

"I have an idea" Gruntilda said, examining a mirror. "I'll call myself Young Conker."

^ That it.

Still, at least Bubsy somehow returned to the gaming scene thanks to Steam. Check something called the Bubsy Two-Fur, by Retroism.

I'm in complete disbelief....not only did they give Conker the UGLIEST redesign ever, not even utilizing his design from twelve tales. But they make this game for a $3000 dollar peripheral that most likely will end up like the kinect.

What were they thinking!?! :|

And I thought Rare made terrible Re-Design choices with BK:NnB... This is just the ugliest and worst thing I have ever seen, making it even worse by topping it off with some VR stuff nobody asked for. It seems like they made Conker into the one thing he is not: Family friendly.

Well, I suppose the backlash speaks for itself: http://puu.sh/nr8rD/cab957d269.png

Ugh. Poor Conker. They got his design somewhat spot-on in Conker's Reunion, but I guess they decided, "Nah, we actually upset his fans this time."

If you pause the video 7 seconds in you'll find some concept art that looks much better than the 3D version displayed in the rest of the video... why didn't they try harder to make it resemble that? The forehead extended above the eyes, both ears were visible from the front, the darker fur color was more of an orange than a brown, the lighter fur color was more of a white than a yellow, the sweater with the giant zipper is easy to make out at a distance compared to the awful jumpsuit, the pink nose fits the cartoony compared to the almost gritty black nose... what was the point of these changes from it?

Whoever is currently in charge of the Rare properties at Microsoft might be some of the most backwards-thinking business people I've ever witnessed in action. This is possibly the single WORST thing they could have created after the Project Spark/Conker backlash.

Rest assured this will either bomb or get canceled, and they'll blame it on "lack of interest in the IP."

definitely a kick in the nuts for those of us wanting conkers OTHER bad fur day. i mean, sure, conker started as a kids character...but what has been done to the character in bfd... can't be UNDONE or UNSEEN.
