Rest is fair but the scarf and Piddles are very clearly just light purple/lavender, let's not play silly games now where we pretend things are what they are not

Rare has really let us down, man.

Banjo-Kazooie is such an expertly crafted game. It's as close to sheer perfection as a video game can possibly be (and Tooie is even better!). It can take game franchises decades to attain the iconic status BK had right out of the gate.

Banjo and Kazooie, Gruntilda, Mumbo, Jinjos, Jiggies, honeycombs, silly voices, rhymes, the tritone-heavy soundtrack... it all feels like something that's had dozens of games to figure itself out. It's like if Galaxy or 3D World were the very first Mario game. A tour de force. It boggles the mind that someone can own something so magical and let it collect cobwebs on a shelf somewhere for 15 years and counting.

And as much as everyone's clamored for Threeie over the years... that dumb 25th anniversary discussion where they say they "aren't sure the audience is still there" really stung. Because it's such obvious bullcrap.

Not to belabor the point, but if they honestly thought people wouldn't buy a new Banjo game today, they wouldn't be selling us highly biodegradable resin statues of Jinjos for hundreds of dollars a pop. Imagine being a business (a business staffed by highly creative and talented artists, but a business all the same) that in 1998 released a product so good that people spent the next 25 years begging them to let us give them more money and just saying, "Nah, we good."

Drives me up the frickin' wall, man.

Forget the timeline where Nintendo pulled their heads out of their asses, swallowed their pride and bought Rare whole hog. This kind of thing makes a guy wonder what's going on in the timeline where Activision bought Rare. How much worse could things be for us Banjo fans? In a world where Crash Bandicoot made a comeback, where C-listers like Bubsy, Croc and Kao are swinging for the fences with big new games, where a game as mediocre as A Hat in Time can be considered a modern classic, what's it going to take for the rightful king and queen to come back and take them all to school?

Sorry. Had to get that off my chest again.

It really sucks. If Nintendo had bought Rare we might have had a chance of more sequels.

But hey we did get Kinect games from Rare instead so....
