No, they shouldn't buy RARE, and they shouldn't buy the IP's. What they should do is get members of development team that did Banjo, to create a 'spiritual successor' of Banjo. --- "I've never in my life wanted to punch a girl like I want to right now" Light Yagami 3DS FC 3995-6522-2067 (PM me so I can add you back)
Rare was never as great as drones pretend. The Rare of Nintendo exclusive days is a myth and legend, fabricated by folks who really had no other "3rd" party to get excited about for years.
Rare's latest games are better than anything the created before.
You must of been born in the late 90s or early 2000s. No good Rare games back then? GoldenEye, Perfect Dark, Donkey Kong Country series, Jet Force Gemini, DK64, Banjo-Kazooie & Tooie, Battletoads, Conker's Bad Fur Day & Star Fox Adventures. Wow, that's a whole lot of nothing.
And you talk about Nintendo not having 3rd party support back then, seriously? Nintendo had all the 3rd party support during the NES & SNES eras. Konami, Capcom, Enix and Square released almost everything for Nintendo platforms. At least do some research next time so there's the illusion that you know what you're talking about.
I wish Nintendo would just buy the rights to get these games on VC... Would really love to get rid of my N64 but can't till they do this
