Anybody remember Ironsword on Nes?

You know, that game with Fabio on the cover. Kind of a fun little game as i recall.
Wonder why it never made it on VC? It's actually the second game of a trilogy but i never played the others.

That's the game that had a big green dragon asking for a golden crown, right?
Rare owns the rights to the Wizards & Warriors games, and seeing that Microsoft owns Rare these days...
Yeah, it's probably that reason why it's not on VC.

Wow i didn't even realize Rare owned the rights. That's too bad. :(

Yeah, probably the same reason why Cobra Triangle, RC Pro Am, Battletoads, and Snake Rattle 'n Roll aren't there either.

Indeed, I was surprised when I looked up what Nes games that Rare had a hand in the cookie jar with.
Slalom, Solar Jetman: Hunt for the Golden Warpship, Snake Rattle 'n' Roll, Captain Skyhawk, Cobra Triangle, R.C. Pro-Am, etc.

Damn that Rare! They used to be so awesome and now they belong to stupid Microsoft.
All those neat games that'll never see a release on Nintendo systems again.
How the mighty have fallen. I used to love Captain Skyhawk btw!

I wouldn't care what system it got released on as long as it got released.
All they do now is Kinect stuff and Avatar accessories.

Part of the reason why Rare isn't doing much besides Kinect Sports and useless digital trinkets recently is because the Stampers left a few years ago to pursue some other unknown interests. To put things into perspective, imagine if Miyamoto and Iwata just upped and left Nintendo to pursue an off-Broadway musical career. Not even sure if Rare has any of the talent anymore that made them big in their heyday.

Too bad about RC Pro-Am. I love that game. I still play my copy of it.
