"Microsoft F***ED RARE"
« 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.
Source

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.
