I think the point he was trying to make is that since Conker was third person, it would probably go over well with the masses.


I think his point was more a scathing sattire on the games industry without really intending it to be.
"Hurr, make it a shooter, den it will sellz derp!"

It's not exactly far away from what Ms was doing with the Conker remake anyway.

Actual trailer for the game. Not misleading at all...

I am that guy at the end. Cmon rare.. You were BRILLIANT on the Nintendo platforms.. why is microsoft stopping rare from being good?


No they weren't. Nintendo was getting tired of Rare's endless delays and their games were selling poorly so Nintendo sold off their shares. Stop assuming that the game you played when you were a kid was the ultimate game. They were a few hit wonder, then crashed and burned.

Forgot all about that trailer. Such a shame they had to butcher the main game.

I wouldn't say a 'few hit wonder' That's just wrong.

Battletoads, Killer Instinct, four hit Donkey Kong games, Diddy Kong Racing, both Banjo titles, Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Conkers BFD, and of course Jet Force Gemini.

Ya. They really were a 'few hit' wonder.

I'm curious to know now that since this topic has been derailed just how many of you watched the video. So many of my favorite posters on this board are in here but they're all angry.

Is Graham from GameFAQs here yet?


I watched it. It was pathetic idiotic whining with s***ty animation and a complete lack of humor.

Anyone saying Kinect sports is a good game has sold out and is the reason gaming is in a decline along with CoD kiddies

Anyone who denies this is in one of those two categories and therefore has no say in what is good anymore

Also, yes Rare is being wasted under Microsoft, somebody should just buy the Killer Instinct IP because that is what fans want, not these kinect rehashes

When Rare split after being acquired by Microsoft everything went downhill. Neither Free Radical or the current Rare are anywhere near as good as Rare back in its prime.
