Looks too sterile... But i think it'll be fun^^

Very colorful, though I wish that Rare had taken this engine and used it for a Conker sequel instead. Their last two games were geared towards the kiddies (Kameo and Viva Pinata) so I thought that would make a more adult oriented one for a change of pace.

I've seen a couple of on screen pics of Banjo 3 on Gametrailers forums, It looks REAALLY colorful and artistic. Dont judge the game just by these pics

Kameo may have looked childish, but it was certainly fun. Second only to Condemned for the best launch title.

Kameo and Viva Pinata didn't really push the 'kiddie' angle too far. Only if you're really sensitive to that sort of thing (probably a young teen) would it bother you. Not nearly as bad as say, watching Cartoon Network or many Nintendo games.

@_@ So far Banjo is exceeding my expectations. Love the art style.

Yes, but not in Rare's heart.

Where are the guys who worked on Banjo & Kazooie and Banjo & Tootie? This looks a far cry from the platform hoot that the franchise was.

Rare,

Since the founders left you and also the minds spinning the wheels behind every I.P ever released by Rare, you have stooped low... very low... to the level of imagination dearth off fantasy.

Kameo was the last game that had vestiges of what Rare used to be.

Farewell.

HOW DARE THEY MAKE A COMPLETELY INNOVATIVE AND INSPIRED DESIGN DECISION! DAMN THEM FOR NOT JUST CASHING IN ON NOSTALGIA LIKE NINTENDO!

It barely looks like a platfomer anymore, its more a build your own racer.

Im seriously disappointed with this, I was hoping for something like Jak and Daxter to be honest, seamless levels and a huge world, yet we get to fly around a bubble and make vechicles, oh the joy !!

It isn't a racer. Read the previews, watch the other videos. Platforming and exploration in vehicles is still platforming and exploration.

I agree, it's completely different, but that's a large reason of why I like it. Traditional games always have a nice 'comfy' feel, and you know what to expect out of them, but I'm glad Rare is doing this concept, which I think is really cool.

BTW, sorry for the caps last post, I was just making a point.

[edit : also, like said above it's way more than a racer. I imagine it will be very cool to get say, a propeller, or jet and think of the new areas you can explore and ways you can set up the vehicle to use those items, will be awesome.]

People won't listen to you Slabs, they'll continue to bicker. READ THE PREVIEWS PPL.

What's up man, it's like only about racing?
Commented on 2008-05-14 00:02:01
I'm not sure how well a "traditional platformer" would hold up against SMG, I like this new direction, if its a platformer in the sense you have to find parts and stuff, then AWESOME.

Its not just a racing game, its like Banjo Platformer + Super Mario Kart + Twisted Metal + Forza :P

Sorry, but these kind of comments were understandable when we only had a handful of leaked images, but now you're just being plain ignorant. Try reading some of the articles, or hell, watch a couple of the previews. Not only does the game look amazing, but even with the emphasis on vehicles, there isn't anything even remotely resembling a race.

Does look somewhat similar, but Viva Pinata looks great.

About the game


What's up?
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Sdarts: oh, i didn't know about the app. But I know that it's their way to go against piracy. (41 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts For 1080p, you need the "4220", "5400" or higher Video Bitrate options. It's a very well know restriction that has been like this for many years. You can Google about it if you want. (12 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts But shows like Orange is the New Black, Iron Fist, and a few others I tried this time around only have the "2740" or "3000" Video Bitrate options, meaning 720p resolution. (12 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts If you need to check what resolution you're getting, just press "Ctrl + Alt + Shift + D" for the A/V Stats screen to come up. You can override/force quality with "Ctrl + Alt + Shift + S". (12 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts The only way to watch in 1080p is to use Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Safari, consoles (like PS4 and XB1), and smart TVs. Everything else you're restricted to 720p. (12 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Like .mp4, .mkv, etc. Also, even if you don't download, you still can't stream above 720p. This isn't possible even in Netflix's own official app. Nor on Firefox or Google Chrome. (12 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @droezelke: The files you download through the Windows 10 Netflix app are encrypted, you can't even watch them with VLC, Media Player Classic or Windows Media Player. They don't even have a format. (12 Hours ago)
