Is it time to let RARE go?

BKNB had... an unoriginal gimmick

...

I... I don't know what to say.

Have you ever played the game? Do you even know what the game is? It's a sandbox game where you create vehicles (with an impressive editor) to solve puzzles. The closest thing I can compare it to is a 3D The Incredible Machine, except with Lego blocks, but without the restrictions of either.

BKNB has my vote for most creative game of all time. (I know someone's going to go WOMG Minecraft, and I'll just point out that while Minecraft lends itself to amazing creativity, the game itself is not creative.)

Rare has made some fantastic games this generation, especially the Kinect Sports games. They're doing a great job.

Wait until we see the launch line-up or next gen, if there are no Rare titles there, or at least announced then perhaps it's time something was done. There's so much amazing IP being laid to waste right now, MS should be pushing it as much as Sony pushes their franchises.

Does MS still own them and for how long?

Yes, over 10 years now.

What do you guys think?

Rare paid their dues, they're due a rebound. Show me a studio where a large number of employees didn't leave over a 10 year period?

If they all left, then it might as well be a new studio. Guess what? Core Design aren't making the next Tomb Raider. Bungie isn't making the next Halo. Remedy didn't make Max Payne 3.

How does that not also count for N&B then?

I miss Killer Instinct, I wish Netherrealm Studios would buy the rights to it.

Nintendo is a shell of their glory days.
Wii U is bombing, Skyward Sword was average at best.

I couldn't get into Nuts and Bolts, and attaching Banjo to it couldn't have backfired worse. A traditional Banjo-Kazooie game would have gone over much better, and even if you did like Nuts and Bolts, that was four years ago.
