    Talking Little RAREities

    We all know (or should) that Rare have jumped on the Microsoft bandwagon, most likely for a whole heap of cash, but they have jumped on all the same.
    We can now, not only laugh in the faces of Nintendo fanboys, who now stand by it when they plea "we didnt need rare anyway", but play top quality games on the Xbox. Only On Xbox.

    Firstly, who's going to own up to not following Rare because they were part of Nintendo (in some respect)?

    Now, what do you all expect from them?
    What improvements would you like to see on future games?
    Is it a worthwhile investment by Microsoft?

    Fire away.

    I would love to see a new Killer Instinct and Battletoads.

    I remeber the Nintendo fans complaining about Retro Studios and how they were going to screw up Metroid. They wanted Rare to make the game last year. Now they act like Rare is no good anymore.

    I like Rare when I had my N64, but after awhile everything game seemed the same except they had different names. I dont dislike Rare but I would like to play a game that is more then a collect fest.

    Are you talking about Banjo, Donkey Kong Country, and Jet Force Gemini?

    Conkers, and Banjo 2. I owned all of Rare's games on my N64. Including Blast Corps and Killer Instinct.

    I owned most of them also but how many N64 games did you have?

    Perfect Dark is the best game. I am so happy they are bringing it out for the xbox.

    I thought you would have owned 46 games. I sold my Nintendo 64 also, then purchased a Dreamcast a few months afterwards. I re-purchased the system last year for a very low price with expansion pack.

    I remember when I first bought my Nintendo 64, I had to pay $70 for Cruis'n USA, $75 Gretzky 3-D Hockey, $75 for MK Trilogy, $70 for Star Wars Shadows of the Empire. None of those games were very good.
