No Banjo Kazooie 3. Rare is officially dead.

Postby dotEXE » Mon Jun 15, 2015 5:46 pm

They announced a Pirate-based MMO and a collection of re-releases that have already been rereleased. I'm done. Rare is officially 100% dead to me.

Deliver us to salvation Playtonic.

Rare... I'm dissapointed, I was on the edge of my seat, only to fall from it laughing.

The opportunity was great after the 30 games for $30 pack, but then total dropdown.
Sadly, that company made great games, but again a new IP. :(

Well, they said there would be more game announcements to come... I'll just wait for a bit. But I believe we've seen the gist of it.

All eyes on Playtonic now, go for it!

I'll keep an open mind with this sea of thieves title. I'll think of it as a modern reincarnation of dream. If they have character customization I'll build Edison!

It was just a matter of months ago that I was certain Rare would be forever shackled to Kinect and Avatars. Now that era is finally over.


I am disappointed we didn't get Banjo-Kazooie or Battletoads, but at least now the door for creativity is open again. Maybe with the success of Yooka-Laylee we'll see Rare move in that direction in the future.

Rare has been dead for a long time now. When their most exciting showing is a collection of older games that were made in better days, that really drives the point home.

Rare, I do not think fans asked for an online only game.
We all wanted a single player adventure to play at any time about a bear and a bird again.

Anyway, if this is it, and any further announcements are not BK3, just games we don't care about, then I guess they never cared or understood anything about there fans.
It just doesn't make sense if so, due to all the hints I been hearing about.

I still think BK3 is coming. I'm not sure when, but it'll be soon. There's so much buzz around 3D platformers; Rare would literally be stupid not to bring back Banjo.

The fact all three Banjo games feature in the retro collection is a good sign to me. They're refreshing people's memories and introducing the games to a new audience in preparation for new sequels, I think. (P.S. 30 games for £20 is amazing, especially when it includes so many great N64 and Xbox titles. I don't think I've ever seen a retro bundle priced so generously).

HoloLens looks really cool too, and I'm not usually one to fall for gimicks.

Wow, tough crowd. You guys do realize that Rare is famous for more than just the bear and the bird, right? Ever since the reveal of Yooka-Laylee (which I have proudly backed), I've come to realize that most people seem to have trouble remembering Rare as anything other than 2D sidescroller platformers and 3D collect-a-thon platformers -- as though they weren't innovating across the board. :roll:

I, personally, am excited to see what Sea of Thieves brings out. This is actually just what I wanted (and predicted): A fresh new IP.

To be honest Rare died for me a long time ago; I only like their N64 IPs (Edit: And DKC). I'm not a Rare fanboy -- I don't worship everything they do. I'd be willing to give this new Pirate game a go, but I'm not exactly shaking with excitement...

I get all the ruined expectation vibe going around here. I truly do.

This however, is a step in the right direction. Heck. It even looks and sounds appealing in its own way. I myself am going to choose to withhold judgment until more is revealed.

I truly believe in a Threeie reveal at Gamescon in August. If not? Ugh.

One thing that I don't understand about Rare is. They know exactly what their fan base wants yet simply refuse to deliver it. Not really good business strategy.
Or when they do deliver a beloved i.p. its an unrecognizable blasphemy against the originals. (Looking at you PD0 and Nuts and Bolts.)

I just can't seem to wrap my head around the decisions made the last 15 years.
They know what is wanted yet they cross their arms and stamp their feet and just refuse.
Its mind boggling. Its almost as if they WANT to fail. Rant over.

I am looking for a reveal at Gamescon. If not I am likely done.

You need to chill out. I didn't expect a Banjo game and I can't believe so many of you DID. It was obviously going to be a new IP. Rare isn't dead and this CERTAINLY is a step in the right direction. If their new game is an online-mp only thing then I obviously won't play it but what comes next could be anything if we support them. We've been dying for them to return to form and get rid of kinect for so long now and they finally have done, we should be supporting this direction. If we're still going to be like "rare is dead" then they might aswel give up on us and go back to kinect sports...
