You are not thinking outside the box.
Companies can change, Rare hasnt really made a story telling single player game in a long time.
We dont know how much money they are investing into it, we dont know the exact staff they have behind the scenes until its released.
Will see what Rares full protential is with this game when its released.
Either way i am excited to see more.
Well I wish I had your positive thinking. I just haven't cared for a single game they've made since like Conker I think. If it turns out great, then maybe I can give Rare the benefit of the doubt again.
