GC08: Banjo video

GC08: Banjo video

It's difficult to show Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts in motion on Microsoft's booth, so here is at least a video showing the huge level, on foot. Yes, it's a strange idea.
Update: Since this first video was sooo popular we HAD to do another one. So here is a race with some strange looking vehicles. Let's just say also that the player is not someone for the team, and the the strange vibrations in the video are due to the sound level of the MS demo stage on their booth. If you still don't understand why we don't have sound in our videos, I can't do anything for you anymore ;)

i think they mean just you can't embed the stream on your site because streaming works most of the time but there are problems like with this video it wouldn't work for me at first then after a couple of refreshes it worked but with no sound

thats because you are a new school graphic whore tha prefer games like crysis where the game play sucks the hell out of the game but its was wonderfull graphics so you can say: OMFG I'M SUCH A GRAPHIC WHORE!!I'M PLAYING A SHITY GAME BUT I DON'T CARE!
He said that the graphics were good, but he wasn't getting the game because it didn't appeal game play wise to him. Slow down. And being a "graphics whore" isn't the worst thing ever. I am extremely passionate about the technology of games, just as much, and sometimes a tad more, then the game its self. Nothing wrong with liking a game because its fucking beautiful. Also, Crysis was actually a great game. I had loads of fun with it. Did you actually play it yourself?

This game does look nice. I don't know why, but I love shiny rough surfaces like the ground at the beginning. Ever since the tile floors at the train station level in Half Life 2 I have drolled over all things shiny... Yum...

And this game is really starting to appeal to me. It might be a bit simple, but with the vehicle creation it obviously has tons of potential for depth, which I plan on exploring to the fullest. And lots of other stuff that just tickles my fancy. And i need to escape from all the Gears of War and what not =) With this and I will have to finally pick up Kameo too.

I'll get this game at Day 1 :-D I love the first Banjo-Kazooie and this one looks amazing.

Jesus, that looks epic.

SOLD.

Same for everyone. It's removed because you probably can't hear anything gamewise because of all the background noise.

The game looks good, btw, certain objects even have a bit of a CG-ish look about them (like the cogs). The gameplay i've seen in multiple videos however looks boring imo.

I don't know what to think about it, I'm not sure about the big room with object in the middle look to there games anymore.

I want to love it but I just can't for some reason.

Wow, you can see they're trying really hard to be like Little Big Planet but failing pretty miserably. The graphics look decent at least.

This is looking like a breath of fresh air, and harkens back to the old school days where level design, and the things in them, didn't make much sense, but they didn't have to so long as they were imaginative and fitted in with the gameplay and not to the detriment of the experience of the player. If you're looking at this and it's doing nothing for you, then you either weren't born, or old enough to remember that era, or you've forgotten about it, in which case the hardcore gamer inside you is dead, if indeed you were one to begin with. Epic old school N64 style platforming greatness? Yes please.

That's why I can't understand why I'm not that hyped toward it, I still play my N64 games on wii or the 64 itself.

So because you can design vehicles, this is a LBP clone? I really don't understand that comparasion. I guess LBP is just a poor rip off of Spore then, despite the completely different gameplay mechanics?

LBP is nothing but creating content. Banjo is an actual platform game, were you can construct vehicles to help you get around. And considering it's been in development a lot longer than LBP, I highly doubt that it had any impact on its development.

Perhaps it's just Rare themselves. They seem to have lost a bit of the magic that really made you take notice of their titles on the SNES and N64. I know what you mean, but just can't put a finger on it. Still, no doubt this should be a solid title.

looks good despite it being a complete mess of style, but i hate the vehicle creation, seems like a tacked on feature to me. i just wish it was a straight up platformer tbh. rental.

Take Gametrailers comments to the appropriate webpage, children.

I personally think it looks lovely in terms of backgrounds, but (and I find myself agreeing with the dude more and more) as Korndog says, the style is a real mess. The characters sit uneasily with the rest of the design work. Strangely unlike Viva Pinata, which looks beautiful. Unlike KD though, I have to say I find the idea of the vehicles oddly compelling and looks kinda fun when it comes to physics puzzles. Nice!
