Digital Foundry vs Yooka Laylee on Switch

in Nintendo Discussion 54 minutes ago

KungKras said: Leave it to the Rare guy to optimize the hell out of Nintendo hardware, haha :D I don't get why some people didn't like Yooka Laylee. When I look at the gameplay it looks like Banjo Kazooie in a bigger world to me. I can only speak for myself but I found it underwhelming. Some of the music is great and the character design -- particularly the designs of Yooka and...

If Sea of Thieves Succeeds?

in Microsoft Discussion 17 hours ago

ThisGuyFooks said: Veknoid_Outcast said: As always, the truth is probably somewhere in the middle. There's evidence out there suggesting team leads are given a lot of leeway, and also evidence, in the case of Lionhead or Black Tusk, of Microsoft meddling. In the case of Rare, however, which is at the heart of this thread, there seems to be a clear history of Microsoft being...

If Sea of Thieves Succeeds?

pokoko said: Veknoid_Outcast said: Yeah, I think Don if off base here. If anything, Microsoft gives its studios too much freedom. That's a hard one for me to accept when many say that Lionhead shut down partially because they were forced into making a games-as-a-service entry despite having no experience or desire in that direction. I think the freedom aspect is...

If Sea of Thieves Succeeds?

ThisGuyFooks said: Veknoid_Outcast said: 1) 343 was created to continue making Halo games. That's its sole purpose. Look at the company name. 2) Black Tusk I'll give you. It was founded in 2012 to create a new IP, "to build the next Halo." Now it's working on Gears. 3) Rare has been given an obscene amount of freedom to create its own games, yes, including Kinect:...

TruckOSaurus said: Veknoid_Outcast said: Oh man this is reassuring. After Rogue One and all the behind-the-scenes drama with Trevorrow and Lord/Miller I've been pessimistic. You didn't like Rogue One? I loved it. In retrospect, I find it was a much better movie than The Force Awakens. ---------- I won't read critics since I want to know next to nothing about the plot when I...

vivster said: Veknoid_Outcast said: That's entirely possible. I'm not a big fan of the business tactics of many modern "AAA" publishers. And I fully agree the minority should be protected. I believe the site should welcome and accommodate groups that aren't fully represented -- and maybe all the pot shots at EA, Activision, et al. are keeping fans of those companies off the...

DonFerrari said: Azzanation said: You know MS gave Rare the freedom to make Sea of thieves right? Go on, name me the brands under MS that are forced to make single IPs that aren't built from the ground up under MS to do so in the first place? They gave the freedom for then to make the IP as they had the freedom to do Kinect games? Can we talk about studios that had to...

Replaced Rare?

in Nintendo Discussion 23 hours ago

Cobretti2 said: Veknoid_Outcast said: I've long thought the transition from Rare to Retro was amazingly smooth and successful. Rare was hemorrhaging talent in 2000-2002, and was proving too expensive to fund or to buy. So Nintendo strikes a deal with former Iguana employees to satisfy the market Rare had previously served. The result: one of the best games ever made in Metroid...

vivster said: Veknoid_Outcast said: But what you're comparing here isn't equal. A lucid explanation of why you prefer Nintendo to exit the hardware business, backed up with reasonable points and framed in a respectful way is not the same as a violent, incendiary outburst about Andrew Wilson.  Your first part could begin a conversation; your second would be a non-starter. As...

vivster said: I want to talk about a thing that's been on my mind for a while. As everyone knows the forum rules and mods have a self inflicted extreme bias for companies that own one of the major 3 consoles. Any negative comments against those 3 companies will usually earn warnings and bans while any other company outside of that spectrum gets a free pass to be shat on. This includes of...

CaptainExplosion said: ThisGuyFooks said: They had a great relationship with Nintendo back in the days. Even tho the personal is not the same from back then, if there is a company that would take advantage of the studio is Nintendo. Not that Sony wouldn't, but Rare's style of games is more similar to Nintendo's. I know, and it's so hard watching them not being able to...
