    I'm a little iffy on Rare right now.

    Like a decade ago they put out some of my favorite games(Perfect Dark, Killer Instinct), but they haven't shown themselves to be all that capable since then.

    So, I find it hard to care about them much these days.

    My only real gripe with Nuts and Bolts were several of the character models, but even for someone as creatively bankrupt as myself, I had tons of creations that I was proud to use. Nothing beats laser-cannon Batmobile.

    Some of my favorite uses of the old Rare logo:

    Donkey Kong Country
    The debut of the modern Rare logo, "created" via the same wireframe rendering techniques used throughout the game.

    Banjo-Kazooie
    ZOOOOOOO*THWACK!!!* Priceless.

    Conker's Bad Fur Day
    Conker really didn't like that N64 logo did he? "Marvelous."

    Perfect Dark Zero
    The first usage of the MS-era Rare logo, brought to us courtesy of Jetpac Dude.

    I tried looking for the splash intro for Nuts & Bolts - with the "R" logo car - but to no avail.

    Rare <3

    Here's to another 25 years, I still love their games, all the 360 ones included.

    Especially the 360 ones - Kameo, Viva Pinata, BK : N&B were all great. PD0 and the Arcade release have their problems but are still fantastic in multiplayer. And the BK Arcade releases along with Jetpac were both welcome and great. Plus, I like Avatars.

    Looking forward to seeing what they are working on next.

    Right now they are working on showing us what the top of an Avatar's head looks like. D:

    All the hate for nuts'n'bolts in this thread makes me sad.

    The demo should've included the ability to totally break any mission with the garage...how the game intended.

    Bolts one flaw to me was that it should have been more exploration and boss focuses with challenges limited to a few races and transport segments.

    Those levels were huge but almost completely empty. Part of it was so they could make you go from A to B and have the time limit seem imposing . It got boring and there was little reason to explore them at all

    Shadow of the Colossus was an okay game, but it would have been much better if you could get to every Colossi by walking down a narrow corridor for 20 seconds.

    So you are saying Shadow of the Colossus is a better game after you beat it?

    Seriously though, if you don't feel like spending $10 on the sequel (which plays like an upgraded version of the game with multiplayer), the original Viva Pinata goes for 98 cents used on amazon. No reason not to pick it up unless your absolutely hate any game where you are not shooting bad guys every three seconds.

    Ahh I had forgotten how I loved the music in Nuts and bolt. I've always loved how the music tracks gradually transform while moving from one area to the other in the Banjo games.

    As for the game itself, it was more fun than I expected. It was only a rental so I finished it but never got around to collect everything but then again I don't think I would've enjoyed getting puzzle pieces in some of the levels. Most of the levels were fun except the one inside a computer and the last one inside some freaky garden. These 2 levels were too cramped and cluttered to make driving/flying around them enjoyable. Oh and the computer level also had a terrible framerate.

    the last rare game i played was either Banjo Kazooi or Diddy Kong Racing (whichever came out later) and I loved both those. I was looking forward to Banjo Tooie but then I got real busy with school and never played it. And I never got an Xbox of either kind.

    This thread needs Nuts and Bolts stories so people can seriously understand how good this game really is.

    I'll start be re-iterating a story I told in a previous thread.

    So the mission I was given was to drive down a large ski ramp and jump, getting as much distance as I possibly could achieve. The game recommended a vehicle with a lot of weight so it'd have an easier time carrying itself (yes, weight factors in here and you get a gauge telling you how heavy your vehicle is) so I start off by using the heaviest pre-made vehicle I own which is basically a giant boot on wheels.

    Now the way this works is you start at the top of the ramp and speed down it, as soon as you hit the jump you lose total control of your vehicle and once it comes to a full stop your distance is tallied up.

    My first attempt went meh, I got enough distance to win some notes (ie: currency) but not enough for the Jiggy and not nearly enough for the trophy (bonus item, attached to achievements). So I throw some fold out wings on the boot and remove the leg section to make it more aerodynamic. I rush down the ramp, hit the fold out button at the last second and the vehicle soars. I just manage to get past the jiggy point and I hit a wall (ie: can't control the thing).

    I try spicing it up, hitting the ramp at different angles but nothing works, no trophy.

    So I tried a new approach.

    I design a small, heavy ball and place Banjo's seat right in the middle of it. Then I create a platform with all the engines I own (a lot), some fuel and wheels. Finally I attach the ball piece to the platform using a unique gadget which, at the push of a button, allows you to detach a section of the vehicle from another section (the vehicle is defined by whereever banjo sits).

    I take this beast down the ramp and just as I hit the jump I hit the detach button and the ball goes flying. It rolls and rolls...and rolls. I made it way past the trophy point and it was an amazingly fun vehicle to build.

    Add your stories!

    It's that whole aspect that didn't appeal one bit to me.

    It may not be a bad game and it may be fun for those who like the idea, but blech, make an original game with that premise, don't promise me Banjo, then give me a vehicle building sim.

    Sipex: In that mission, or another similar distance challenge I made a vehicle that when I detached in mid air all that would remain is the seat surrounded by springs.

    You could technically achieve an infinite score but couldn't actually finish it because you were stuck barely bouncing between 2 of the springs forever. The challenge couldn't end.

    While the original trailer was a lame move by Rare, I don't see the problem with putting Banjo and Kazooie into a non-platformer game. Does it bother people that much to see Mario Kart, Mario Party, Mario Golf, and Mario RPG? Using an established character in an otherwise unrelated game does give it more attention and sales, but it also gives it a lot of charm, so I don't see it as a bad thing.

    Please for the love of god will Rare make a New Battletoads in the ultra violent style of the original arcade game now.

    Oh, wow. I... I didn't think anyone would say this before I got to. Well, while I'm here, may as well lime it.

    Anyway, I would gladly settle for an XBLA release of the arcade game, too.

    In addition, I really, really wish they would dust off Wizards & Warriors. Kuros must rise again!

    It would be nice to have the originals back on Virtual Console, but remakes on XBLA would be cool, too.

    A new R.C. Pro-Am might be nice.

    On the subject of Killer Instinct, count me in as a fan. I liked the Super NES game more than KI Gold, though. Jago and Fulgore were my favorites to use.

    Donkey Kong Country, I loved, and Diddy's Kong Quest was good as well. I really liked how they managed to flesh out DK and such. Sadly, the big ape just hasn't been the same since Rare left.

    Of course, there was Donkey Kong Country 3. That one was okay, but not spectacular.

    And, as noted, DK64. I had honestly hoped to see a DS version, a la Super Mario 64, with some improved graphics and tweaks to make the game overall more tolerable. Alas.

    Banjo, I've always liked, though I've never played the games. I just like the character, for whatever reason.

    That said, as a n00b to that series, where would be the best place to start? The original game, or Nuts & Bolts?

    And finally, as I pointed out in another thread a while back, I've really come to like Avatars. I wish I could play a good platformer with mine (Indie games notwithstanding). You'd think Rare would be working on something like that. Or maybe some Banjo/Conker variation of Diddy Kong Racing that allows for racing as your Avatar.

    Maybe that's what they'll make for Natal?

    Something Perfect Dark-ish with Avatars would be cool, too. I know they said you can't shoot them, but what about some variation of NERF, laser tag, or paintball?

    For a newbie to the Banjo & Kazooie series I'd recommend starting with Banjo & Kazooie, then, whether you like it or not, try Nuts'n'Bolts with completely different expectations.

    Because they're really two seperate games.

    I'd start with the original Banjo-Kazooie, and then switch to Nuts & Bolts. BK1 is still solid fun, but Tooie just isn't all that great. Rare went for a bigger-is-better approach with Tooie, but they ended up making it extremely tedious. There's so much back-and-worth trekking you have to do, especially with Mumbo and the split-up Banjo and Kazooie, most levels are just too big, sparse, and boring, and you have to do so much back-tracking but it's rarely clear if/when something can only be obtained by backtracking. Despite my good memories of the game back when it was on the N64, I can't bring myself to even finish it on the XBLA edition. Grunty Industries is the worst level ever.

    Eh. I can see the appeal in BK I just don't like it because it feels so utterly a slightly inferior clone of Mario 64 to me. Tooie is awful and my first thought of whenever I think of "bad Rare games", because of the reasons I just posted. Let's not even mention DK64

    You see, I look at Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie and see games that out-do Mario 64 in every catagory: graphics, gameplay, controls, humor.

    Anyone who likes 3D platformers, I can't say enough good things about those games.

    Man what. BK was good but it was no Mario 64.

    Rare imitate Nintendo at every turn (seriously, the game is even set in a castle and worlds entered through paintings) but they just don't have the same mastery Nintendo do. Here's one example; in BK (and especcially BT) you keep learning new moves to get past new obstacles. In Mario 64? You have all your moves from the beginning, but as the worlds unfold they find new ways to challenge your ability and mastery of that moveset. You solve problems using the tools you had in new and better ways. In BT you reach a new obstacle and think 'okay where do I learn the move that gets me past this?'.

    I like BK, it's a good game. But it is a Mario 64 clone and doesn't reach the same quality. BT isn't particularly good, though the world design was ambitious the rest of the game was worse than the original in most respects.

    To me, where BK (and BT and DK64 and CBFD) excels over Super Mario 64 is in the controls.

    SM64 controls are so damn slippery and imprecise. For years I thought it was the fault of the awful N64 controller, until I played it on the VC with the amazing Classic Controller. Nope. It's the game.

    Say what you will about abilities and collecting doodads and whatnot, the control in Rare 3D platformers is so tight.

    Other than the usual jump, flip, stomp, wall jump, etc. stuff we've seen recently, the only other "moves" needed in SM64 were the three cap power-ups which, big surprise, had to be earned and used in puzzles. Yes, Rare does a damn good job of refining things, but to call B-K a straight up clone of Mario 64 does it a disservice. There was a whole lot more exploration to B-K, and that was why it was a joy to play - lots of huge playgrounds to mess around with, packed with nice details.

    Of all the 3D Marios, I really thought Sunshine controlled the best, and I'm sure the controller was a big reason why.

    So far my 3-D Mario outings goes in reverse order: SMG2, SMG, Sunshine, SM64. That is from my favorite to my least favorite...how wierd is that. :P

    I didn't say that it was terrible, just that the other 3 3-D Mario games are better than it is.

    Yeah man, I love Maro 64, but the original BK is better in almost every way - graphics, audio, controls, gameplay and pace. Some of the best level design in Mario tops that in BK though, but some of it is less impressive (and actualy rather lame) too. Overall, BK is more consistant.

    But y'know, Mario 64 will always have that 'holy shit analogue control 3D awesome WTF' association for me. BK is a lesson is pure videogame joy though, before Rare went apeshit with the 'collecting'.
