Title: "Microsoft F***ED RARE"
Post by: Vipsoccermaster on July 07, 2012, 01:45:12 AM
Former RARE Composer Grant Kirkhope, who composed many soundtracks from games such as Banjo-Kazooie and Conker's Bad Fur Day, had this to say:

Quote from: Grant Kirkhope
I think Rare have completely f#@$ed themselves. And - it isn't their fault; it's Microsoft's fault. They have completely ruined that company, and it makes me cry every day of my life.

I have to agree with him. Microsoft has turned Rare into a completely different company, much unlike when Rare was working with Nintendo.

lol ~ but this is also very true.
Rare was making awesome games while it was working with Nintendo!

Look at the Donkey Kong Country games and DK64! Amazing games.

Now Rares games today... (though I don't really know - this is what I heard) don't even compete with it.

Retro's DKCR was FAR better than the first 3 put together. And DK64 was crap imo.

The only thing I buy from Microsoft is Computers. And they should stick to computers because they're f**king everything else up.

Microsoft destroyed Rare. I have to go with Grant because ever since N&B, I haven't seen Rare anywhere except in the Kinect Sport series.

Rare had some great games for the n64.
DK64
Diddy Kong Racing
Banjo-Kazooie
Conker's
GoldenEye
Perfect Dark
Jet Force Gemini

I even liked Star Fox Adventures for the Gamecube. It's a shame what's happened to them, I grew up playing a lot of their games.

Edit- Also lol at Vip for the title

Microsoft F***ed Rare so hard that Rare became handicapped with idiots.

It's like what SEGA did to the modern Sonic.

Except their console and most of its exclusives are pretty fun but ok.

Microsoft doesn't even make computers they make an operating system.  ;)

P.S: They Xbox 360 is a great console, the online system is probably the best out of all 3 of the current systems, and although you pay for it there is a reason you do since it is the best.

I don't like the X-Box console personally, but I do love most of it's exclusive games and the avatars.  I wish Rare still made Donkey Kong games. I only like the DK games made by Rare. The others just can't compare.

I definitely have to agree that Microsoft should really stick with one thing at this time as well. Gaming just doesn't seem to be their strong point (though I won't deny that their systems are still doing somewhat well in the market now).

Also it's sad to say that I agree with the fact that Rare has really went downhill ever since it was bought by Microsoft. Rare really was creative and made some of the best games of the '90s, though sadly it doesn't seem like the company has achieved anything too great after joining up with Microsoft.

Also the RARE today is barely who they were. Many of  the original developers for the 64 games are gone and they're pretty much with Microsoft for Kinect games now.

The Stamper Brothers left the company like in 2004, so I consider that the end of Rare's powerhouse legacy. But to be honest, the complaints against Microsoft in this topic is ridiculous fanboy talk. "Microsoft should stick to computers". Yeah, which is why the 360 sold really well and that gamers prefer it's games and online compare to the s***ty Wii and it's ass online.
Title: Re: "Microsoft F***ED RARE"
Post by: Deceptive Dislike on August 07, 2012, 05:33:43 PM
Odd because the 360 has some really good games, just some of the Micro+Rare games aren't very impressive, but the remade Banjo Kazooie was nice with it saving notes. But the 360 overall is still a great console.

I don't consider a console with a s***load of shooters great.

Just some sort of machine for Americans to wish they could actually shoot people.

Because America loves that.
