    Rare can still make good games.

    Ever since the move from N64 to GC/Xbox, everyone has been down on Rare like they're awful. I really don't think they're bad. I'm not a fan of Kinect, but the rest of their games are fun.

    I really love people who post gigantic comments with every single piece of the conversation so far in quotes.

    I like how it makes reading the forum on a phone completely mindnumbingly dull as you scroll through 800,000 pixels of long winded detail sniping.

    Jeez.

    I actually think K Sports is the best game they've made in years.

    @King_Edward I should probably give it a go, but I find very little reason to buy a Kinect. I might wait till it's dirt cheap and get them...

    Only get the first one as the sequel is a bit rubbish.

    @PazJohnMitch I've just noticed. I can get this thing for about 30 already. Hah! :D

    Blood Dragon. I tried to like it, but it's just rubbish. And it thinks it's so funny, but it's not.

    Regardless of whether Blood Dragon is any good or not, somebody should take it upon themselves to de-make into an 8-bit action game.

    @DarkSpaceDS

    To me, the boomerang controller looked just like a fancy design concept to make the PS3 look all future and stuff. Nothing to be actually made.

    I am of the opinion the DS3 is ok. It is certainly better than the DS2 but it is certainly not the best controller on the market. For instance I think the 360 controller is much more comfortable to hold and has better analogue sticks. (I prefer them as they are stiffer than the DS3s).

    I agree that the sticks on the DS3 are naff, I just don't agree with the whole primary/secondary position argument. I think they're better placed where they are, but just aren't very good at what they are.

    I know they aren't actually triggers you genius which is why its better. The triggers for the DS3 feel extremely cheap and feel like they can break at any time as it feels really spongy.
    That's the thing, I thought the DS3's triggers felt flimsy and would break in no time as well... it's pushing 5 years since I bought a PS3 and still using the same DS3 I got with it, so it's proved its worth in terms of endurance at least.

    You demand proof when I say "to me it looked like this or that"? How am I supposed to prove that? Cut my brain out for scientific examination?

    They've had mixed results on the 360 though Banjo Nuts & Bolts is one of the most inventive and interesting games on it, but it didn't sell. I like 3d platformers but it was good to try something different. Viva Pinata also has some good ideas too. It seems they've still got some spark left.

    There is the mantra that all the best people have left Rare, as if there's only 1 person left from the N64 and earlier era. Of course some talent has gone, but I think it's been greatly exaggerated. They are/at least were a huge organisation with multiple teams, since the kinect stuff has sold reasonably well, maybe they'll be allowed to make proper games again.

    In hindsight the Microsoft buy hasn't really worked out. Ironically Nintendo are the ones that actually could do with them as a big first/second party Western developer, taking the strain off them to produce games like they did with the N64.

    The Nintendo rare thing is interesting.

    On the one hand they both are great at similar kinds of games. They compete more than on other systems.

    But likewise rare style games just don't seem to sell on Xbox.
  • Deleted user 5 May 2013 20:38:07
    @freedumb I think part of the problem is 3d platformers just aren't that big now. Back on the N64 era, they were loads of them kicking around. This gen though, thre hasn't actually been that many. Kameo was decent and I think should of probably sold better than it did really. Sadly the ending will get resolved :(

    There was only 2 things they went wrong with on the Nuts & Bolts game. The first, was calling it Banjo Kazooie. They should've made it Blast Corps or something new that wasn't Banjo Kazooie- as those games are loved for being platformers. Second was the missions. It soon got repetitive. They needed more variety I think.

    If I go from 360 controller to DS3, having not played a PlayStation console for any length of time, it cripples my fingers.

    Not that anybody else here owns a Wii U, but Nintendo's blatant 360 rip-off, the Pro Controller, is great. If Microsoft can put both analog sticks up top, sort out the damned d-pad and drop some of the weight, they'll have made the perfect controller.

    Interesting idea. Looking at the Wii U Pro pad, it seems to have an advantage that the d-pad and buttons are further apart than the d-pad and right stick is on the 360 pad. I think what they've done on the Wii U pad versus the 360 is to push the top two elements (sticks, in their case) slightly further from the normal, looking at this image.

    IMO it feels weird on the 360 pad to try to use the d-pad with the right stick at the same time. Does it feel weird pulling both sticks to the outside on the Wii-U pro pad at all? Not sure if you still own your 360, but if you do, is the Wii U pad any wider than the 360 pad?

    They're almost exactly the same width. The Wii U Pro Controller feels a bit slimmer though, with a bit just behind the shoulder buttons (they're all buttons, no triggers) that my middle fingers rest in.

    The buttons being where the 360 right stick is takes some real geting used to though. I don't think I like it all that much - still easy to adjust to, but I prefer them where they are on the 360/PS3/Gamecube controller.

    Bit tight on the d-pad with the left stick then maybe? Any issues pulling up left diagonal?

    Wouldn't say so - the fact it's plus shaped rather than a circle means your thumb fits it quite nicely. If anything, I'd say down right is worse because of the way the controller slopes away at the bottom edge.

    Generally though, the left hand doesn't feel significantly different to the 360 pad.
