@dronesplitter True, when the gamecube era came about a large amount of the talent in Rare left, pretty much all of the goldeneye/perfect dark team left to form free radical games (creators of timesplitters).

contrary to popular belief, microsoft actually gave Rare free reign most of the time, but nothing they made sold, so then microsoft stepped in and made them make kinect sports, we still have the great viva pinata games from the rare-microsoft era. as well as that, hopefully a new era of rare will start with Sea Of Theives (xbone+PC) which looks amazing.

$1 million? thats insane for a game that has terrible balance!!! smash bros hardly picks up a $30,000 prize pool, and tournamens have been happening for melee for 14 years!!! this game doesn't even have LAN, dont get me wrong, its a good game, but it doesnt have the competetive depth that CS:GO, SSF, SSB or LOL has...

@Achoo well, i wasn't from the Rare era, the first console i played was a GameCube, i have just played rare games on emulators. Its your opinion i guess, but you cant say battletoads wasn't amazing just because you dont like the genre, the game is still an outstanding brawler, i personally prefer Diddy Kong racing to the MK series, and i think it is a poor perspective to just expect every kart racer to have the same control style as MK, the controls are meant to be different. Donkey Kong country had amazing graphics for its time, and the same thing can be said about many old games that looked great back in the day.

@Achoo Rare redifined the console FPS (camera, speed, couch co-op, reload function) with goldeneye, and again with perfect dark.
Rare created the best platformers, even to this day the Banjo series and Conker have OUTSTANDING platforming with great level design.
Rare made one of the best brawlers with battletoads, which is great, albiet tough as nails.
Rare made one of the best fighting games ever, killer instinct.
Rare made the only other kart racer that innovated and can stand next to Mario kart when the made Diddy Kongs racing.
Rare bought 3D graphics to the SNES, and pretty much defined the 2.5D graphics style with Donkey Kong Country.
They did things that hadnt really been done before, with blast corps and the amazing crudeness that is Conker's Bad Fur Day.
Heck even at microsoft they created Viva Pinata which is in a genre of its own and has amazing charm and is critically acclaimed.

I think Rare are a different company now, but it might just be a good thing now, their new game Sea Of Thieves, which looks good so far, i will definitely pick it up because it is being released on PC too. They certainly weren't over rated, Rare in the Nintendo days where the most consistently fantastic developer out there.

Wonky_Kong commented on Eager Fans Have Broken Down Fighter Changes in...:

As a Yoshi and DK main, im glad to see yoshi unchanged, and slightly glad of the DK dash attack buff, but i feel Ninty could reduce lag on his tilts that would be what he needs (up smash is largely useless) and also, if his ariels could be made safer on shield.

Great to see the marth buffs, although pretty much every marth player i know wants to see forward air or back air buffed, that would make him very viable. shulk buffs are great too, and nice to see diddy slightly buffed again, after being destroyed last patch. luigi nerf is good, but i feel the falcon nerf wasnt needed. Wii fit trainer and palutena finally fixed . shame about samus. also why does lucas need a buff?

Ive noticed most of the changes this patch are buffs, when last it was nerfs. anyway, very good in general.

@Rhydas 'probably worse than him' xD there is no probably when it comes to zero, zero wins. xD
This guy didnt lose ONE GAME during all of evo, and around 1800 people entered, that is insane. He has the right to be cocky, and im glad that he has a solid sponsor now. anyone who likes competetive smash should subscribe to his youtube its very good.

It looks amazing, but its wierd because its like someone just took a mario model and put it into bloodborne. I personally think super mario 3d world looks amazing too.

a company really needs to hire this guy though his work is amazing.

Wonky_Kong commented on Nintendo Isn't Talking About NX Because It Doe...:

@DoctorWily No, that's not 'copying' its called a market and nobody should be able to own a control stick or a d-pad, its not good for the consumer. If Nintendo were the only hardware company we would all be playing on much more inferior hardware, probably still running gamecube graphics because apparently the only thing that pushes Nintendo's graphics capability is competition. Also, lets not forget how Nintendo didn't invent the touch screen or motion controls, yet nobody claims they copied people.

The fanboy's in this comment section need to realize that competition in a market is a good thing.

Wonky_Kong commented on Interview: Lilian "Milktea" Chen Talks Smash B...:

I still wonder why it is that less women get into competitive gaming, and why women seem to place lower than men in the majority of e-sports. I think it may have something to do with the fact that women are discouraged from playing games when they are younger (due to social expectations) and so have less experience. I think one of the most high-placing women in e-sports is Scarlett in StarCraft2, and starcraft is transgender, which raises the question if there is anything biological which gauges our ability to play games? Maybe its such a big social stigma for women to play e-sports, so that many potentially great female gamers decide against pursuing e-sports

It is also great to see more female smashers in smash4, such as Officer Jenny and Nicole.

Wonky_Kong commented on Playtonic Wants Yooka-Laylee To Eclipse Banjo-...:

@TheRealThanos The abilities in a hat in time are different, yooka-laylee (so far) is just the same as banjo, i want to see innovation in the genre (ala mario galaxy) not just rehashed shiny old games.

Also the dev team does not consist of 95% the original devs, (im sure there are less than 20 people working on this) 95% of their dev team worked on banjo, big difference. They might not have contributed anything which made banjo how great it is. And a hat in time's gameplay is not simialr to sunshine, the graphics and the FIRST level are similar that is where the similarities end.

Im not trying to shut this game down, im just saying to look at other games like a hat in time that are coming out soon, and we can see a much more fleshy platformer

Also why do people assume that the game is going to be great? Other Rare developers have split out, and many have made just mediocre games (although stuff like timesplitters was amazing). People should have a look at A Hat In Time, looks just as good as this does and is out very soon, and has a more original character.
