Rare =/= RareWare.

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

Also, Square =/= Squaresoft

Square, and especially Square-Enix is a trash. A waste of money and time.

Square is what most gamers used to call Squaresoft back in the day. SE =/= Square is much more appropriate.

SE's efforts on the handhelds are excellent, however. On a home console, they're pretty much a waste, that's true.

If they prove to have good games then I see them more as another Retro,remember before Metroid Retro had Raven Blade,NFL football,Mario Football,some twisted metal game all in the works so they had many ideas and obviously the talent. HVS could be the new Retro without the Metroid.

High Voltage could definatly become the next Retro. As for the next RareWare I don't think were going to ever see a new RareWare. Retro I think had the best chance of living up to that glory but once they were assigned to Prime all their origional IP's were disgarded. In order for a studio to truly live up to RareWare's reputation they would have to create origional IP's for Nintendo. To be honest I think the only true studio's that live up to Rare's reputation are Nintendo own internal developers like EAD Kyoto and EAD Tokyo.

Maybe they should give them the Metroid license.

Should also take note that Rare managed to shine when plenty of other devs were making great games on the Wii and had good competetition. High Voltage are (lets assume Conduit is great) doing it when most games on all current gen systems are a joke.


Edited for truthfulness.



HVS will implode. Poor guys.

Alright I think this is proof that High Voltage Software is the new Retro. Three new IP's in like one year and of those IP's two of them are shooters for the Wii. Now unlike Retro Nintendo won't be awarding HighVoltage the Metroid liscense so hopefully we'll see their creativity actually come to fruitation unlike with Retro. If High Voltage plays their cards right they could turn all these new IP's into franchises by the end of the generation.

 

Hopefully Nintendo picks up High Voltage and turns them first party fast before one of the other publishers realizes their potential and takes them over first.

All I know is, Gladiator A.D. could include the Colosseum-filled sea battles, and that'd be it. I'd be done. For life.

Time will tell indeed.



You're forgetting Zoonami - the company founded by the creator of Goldeneye whom left Rare, and have been working on multiple wii games for the last 3 years. It would make sense for them to unveil their projects at this E3.

I haven't forgotten about Zoonami. But since its foundation it has only released a single DS game. Its key title FunkyDilla has been all but cancelled and with no assets to disolve and no real profits coming it I can't see them having much to actually show. Not to mention Zoonami isn't a big enough company to have a booth or presence at E3, it would be foolish for such a small company to try and compete with the big boys for air time during E3. Thats why High Voltage is revealing all of this stuff prior to E3, because if it all got announced at E3 it would get lost in the over flow of new games announced from bigger developers and publishers!
