An interesting, if not eye-opening read. Very recommended.

I use Gamefaqs, I couldn't possibly read all that.

But in my opinion Rare died when those guys left to form Free Radical to make Timesplitters.
Nothing really good has come from Rare since then.

Banjo Nut's N Bolt's wasn't really mind blowing like in the past.

But if they snap out of the Kinect focus, I'm sure they could be great again.
If they just stop trying to re-invent the wheel.

*edit
Just make what people want. 3D platformer Banjo and Jet Force Gemini.

I don't know about you but I loved Kameo and Viva Piņata, heck Viva Piņata is one of my favourite games of last gen.

I am getting kinect rivals. I am glad they made it and laugh at you ponies and your lack of games.

Wooooow, you're clinging to a Kinect game. That is just sad.

These posts from a former Rare employee tell the story of how the Banjo series came to it's untimely end:
