Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Is High Voltage Software Nintendo's spiritual Rare?

I don't know, but they sure are trying. They saw an opening in the wii market and are going for it full steam. Good luck to them.

I found that the industry lacked imagination when they shunned the wii in the beginning, wel actually even now. Sure it's just a business but a creative business. HVs is showing some refreshing energy.



In the wilderness we go alone with our new knowledge and strength.

Savior - HVS to me has proven themselves already. They did Hunters: The Reckoning, well at least the GameCube version, and I dig the game a lot. They made one of the few 4-player hack n slash type games that I still fire up with some friends.

Well I hope their games are better than Rare's current games or it's not going to mean much that they are only making them on Wii.

Rare has been averaging above 80 on the Xbox 360.  That's not stellar, but they certainly don't deserve the bad rep they get.



starcraft - Playing Games = FUN, Talking about Games = SERIOUS

Rare =/= RareWare.

Rare is a trash. A waste of money and time.

*looks at game collection*

 

yeah, because you have played them all. i remember another article about this with insomniac. if rare wasn't so good than people still wouldn't be comparing stuff to them.

they have the chance, but i really don't think they will.



If by "Rare" you the Rare prior to Nitnendo selling them and the mass exodus of actual talent, then I have to say no.

shovelware made them cash to make real games like the conduit and gladiator.
They make a lot of licensed games for $.



It would be cool for it to happen, but only time will tell once their big titles are released.

P.S. You forgot Donkey Kong 64! ;)
