Amazing , and surprising too, as i saw yesterday's opening on X06. There was this big bear Banjo and this little bird Kazooie..... i remembered the old N64 days and hell YEAHHHH , ohhh my gosh ! I have prayed that one day the wierd Team will be comming back on a console, and there it is :) I think this will be more fun than Kameo and Perfect Dark Zero.... I LOVE RARE ! :)

Kameo times some.

Kameo was and is still one of the nicest looking games around, so i can't imagine how much better this is guna look.

hell yeah jolli. kameo is STILL to this date the best looking game ever made. its quite sad that no other game can really come close. the same rare team that made kameo is gonna make this right? i can only imagine how great its going to look. lets just hope the gameplay has depth this time around. *cough*kameo*cough*.

i saw this vid on 360. for a CG vid, it sure looks like shit, no? weird. the real game will no doubt look much better! man if this game looks better than kameo, i will shit my pants. it seems that no one but rare could pull it off. cant wait to see it.

Well, as long as Rare can dump the stupid pills for their old franchises, this should
be an amazing platformer to date...

Just hope they are not sleeping with the same idiocy-inducing women this time
around as when they made Perfect Dark 0 as I really like Banjo Kazooie...

I think the new look is awesome...
Worthy lok for next-gen imo, still captures the banjo look.
@maniacoli
..the old N64 days..I remember them if they where yesterday! :(
I played both versions, but I liked Tooie more, it did had framerate problems but I enjoyed it more!

Yes this game is really going to look amazing. I think the games the Bajo Team has put out have always looked a good deal better than the games the other teams within Rare put out. But I wonder what they are going to do new with this game. There isn't much that hasn't been done with platformers so it should be interesting to see what Rare is going to do with the game now.

Go rare!

It's gonna be interesting how the graphics will look on the Xbox 360, and how it's gonna be overall. If it's likely to the two other games for the N64, this will be the best Rare game in many years.

is this ingame or what?
Commented on 2006-09-28 16:52:06
Conker (on xbox1) and KAMEO (360 duh) looked freakin amazing... just the graphics made these games worth it... this is the genre RARE does best.. can't wait.

Bizarrely the Marketplace trailer refers to Banjo and KAZUI?!?

Apart from the weird spelling of Kazooie, it's fantastic to see this classic N64 platformer is going to get an Xbox 360 outing; Banjo-Kazooie is probably my favourite platform game of all time.

I'm not so keen on the artwork for Banjo himself though, he doesn't look like what I expected which was a faithful reproduction of how he looks on the N64 box art but I'm sure I'll either get used to it or Rare will change his design before the game is released. They went through several different designs for Joanna Dark before Perfect Dark Zero was released.

Go rare!
Keep in mind that most of the developers who made Perfect Dark and Banjo moved to Free Radical.

and yes ... what tedious games they was

perfect dark only sucked cause MS made them rush it, kameo was only short because it was rushed by MS
hopefully due to no need to rush this it shoul be as good as the last ones

but mainly, all i want is killer instinct ...

Do you blame the shitty voice acting and the terrible cutscenes on Microsoft? And yes, I'm talking about Perfect Dark Zero. Btw, Kameo was developed by Rare, but they were actually different people.

yes i do blame the voice acting on MS it was there call to bring is voice actors and not use in house, and i know they was 2 diffrent teams on kameo and PD0 that is common sence let alone common knowledge, and the cutscenes was rushed by microsoft because they needed game for launch
maybe if you watch the behind the scenes and look this stuff up you would know and the same thing might happen to Gears Of War due to microsoft once again pushing the developer to hard for a launch

i love my 360, i love the games, but i wish the HARDWARE people would leave the software guys alone and let them work there magic
