Xbox UK at Rare video

Xbox UK at Rare video

Since it looks like we won't be allowed to do our own videos of Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts, we'll have to survive with the more or less official stuff. So here is Xbox UK's video visit at Rare, with quite a bit of game footage.

Damn, I have to say that looked pretty damn good. I love how one vehicle jumps in the air to drop the hang glide.

I'm with you, im concerend about the platforming too.
Commented on 2008-05-13 18:19:05
Looks good but I am really concerned now. There is a huge Vehicle emphasis in that video ? where the hell is the platforming ?

The streams seem really slow lately? Maybe it is just me though

This is the best they came up with? Really, really sad! Not sure what I saw but it has to be the most uninspiring trailer ever to one of the most promising Rare's Intellectual Property.

At this point I don't even care what new they are going to bring to the table... the graphics look below average and the level design reminds me of those poor PS 1 & PS 2 titles, better yet, it is almost comparable to some Wii shovelware games.

give me a break, so your depressed that a platforming game is like a ps2 and ps1 in design, and wii shovelware? you mean the consoles that sell 50+million?

Looks great but the framerate needs some work but I'm sure this is only a Pre-Alpha build

Why are they copying Ratchet style with all the machinery etc stuff?
Commented on 2008-05-13 19:20:53
Game looks really great visually and very interesting with the physics based vehicle building, but it does look like there won't be a lot of actual platforming.

I don't think it's much like Ratchet & Clank at all, first off Banjo had Kazooie in his backpack before Ratchet ever had Clank, next those games focus on shooting...

looks ok

lol wut? how many machinery did R&C have? other then those space ships? and how many of them could you build urself, "hey R&C copied platforming from some other game ya know" -_-

WOW It's look very nice ^0^ This game it doesn't copying Ratchet & Clank . because Banjo it's has ever been on N64 platform before. can't wait for Banjo on XBOX360 :P I guess it's comming soon:) thx for a new video

edit: haha I have already watch the video right now. It's have a little joke part of the first minute XD um...It's look so cool but I want to adjust about framerate for this game because , It's low framerate:( but have a great compost :D

As much as I really hate to say this: I do have the exact same feeling.. First after seeing the "extra" leaked screenshots, I hoped for the presentation of today to take my "underwelming" of the screens away, but to bad that didn't happen with this video.
I mean, really, wtf? "taken away all of kazooie's moves" for "carrying" vehicle-parts from place A to place B? (which in my opinion even looks pretty lame in animation).
Rare could and should have taken the interaction between Banjo and Kazooie to a whole new level with this superior hardware.
I also do not dig the movement of Banjo: the balancing on the line, his jumping and his walks, but I think this is just a matter of taste.
And the feeling of "empty" looking environments (especially the sky) is not taken away with these gameplay clips.

Man, I hate to bash a game, but it's just that I really hoped this would become the next best thing, as I still am a "number 1 fan" of the original and Tooie.

We still haven't seen much jet, so mee feeling could be totally misplaced, but for now, I am really disappointed.. :(

Nice colours and lightning in these clips and screens, though..!
And funny "fake-scare" of this guy in the end, haha!

Kazooies old moves have been removed, wtf this is not good and it looks way too much vehicle focused, this isn't the real B&K anymore :-(
Commented on 2008-05-13 20:13:31
There's a video up on GameVideos that shows even more footage but the video quality itself is extremely poor. However it has actually made me excited for the game, the variety it shows is really cool. I'm surprised they show a beheading of pixel Mario though (you have to see the vid).

I feel exactly the same, why this strange trees and grass, why not normal environments as in old Banjos and the gameplay is nothing like Banjo, very disappointing. Rare isn't the same anymore, i don't like their new art style and gameplay, except Kameo.

I want games like the old Banjo, Jet Force Gemini and Starfox Adventures from Rare and not this new crap.

After reading the preview on IGN and seeing all these other videos, I am very impressed. Admittily, I never played much of the original, and didn't even touch the second one, but everything about this sounds great. I can understand why some fans are upset by such a drastic change, but there does appear to still be quite a lot of regular platforming, it's just the fact most of his special attacks and abilities have been replaced with the use of vehicles.

Which sounds great to me. The physics behind the creation system sound incredible, being able to make any kind of vehicle you want is something I've always wanted in a game. A few things that really grabbed my attention was the ability to slap a rocket on the side of a car to make it go faster. But then sticking a few on the bottom will create a hover car.

And we even have the ability to create detachable vehicles, within vehicles? So basically I can have a car, that breaks down into a bike, which can sprout wings if it falls off the side of a cliff :D

I was sold instantly when I saw the one vehicle break off into a jet-like aircraft. That game looks amazing, couldn't give a spit about old gameplay. That game also looks like it would be amazing multiplayer, vehicle combat rules.

Oh I know, I just remember all of us doing testing and was wondering if they switched servers or something

As for being mindful of swearing, not to be a jerk but you do know it says "pussy" next to your avatar right?
