If I can get over it not being Banjo-Threeie, so can you! So for the past year, Rare and associates have been making these cryptic statements, that all seemed to imply one thing: Rare was getting out of their now established role as MS's Kinect monkeys. The world was getting excited for a glorious return to Rareware... Then we saw this during the MS presser. You know, at first I was a bit disappointed... This didn't quite look like the sort of Rareware game I'd been expecting. Where were the googly eyes? Where was the woodland critter? Where were the million collectibles? But you know what? I watched it some more. And you know what? It looks pretty good. This looks like a beautifully crafted, phenomenally immersive pirate adventure. It's a sweeping multiplayer adventure, and you know, while that doesn't quite sound like my thing, I'm willing to give it a shot. http://www.seaofthieves.com/ The site's here, and you can get a bit more of a feel for the world of the game. It looks like a hell of a romp! I can easily see this world having the atmosphere and mystique one could expect from Rare. In many ways, it looks like a modern successor to Project dream, the Pirate game for the SNES that eventually became Banjo-Kazooie. So aye say sign me up, me hearties, avast fer pirate booty, unless ye be a salty sea dog. And after all, who does pirates better than Rare? And how can I not trust Rare with their sexy new logo, eh? Looks good, don't it?
Like Donkey Kong? Like Rare? Are you fucking pumped for Playtonic's upcoming game? Even if you answered no to one or all of those questions, I hope you'll stick with me. The Kongversation is a kongconversational podcast about the greater Donkey Kong Universe run by DK Vine's own Emmy-winning founders, Hyle "Slush" Russell and Chad "Charles Chadwick" McCanna. If you're like the majority of the human population, you probably have to clue what the hell the DKU is. It's actually quite simply, the DKU covers Rare's Donkey Kong and its various spin-offs, like Banjo and Conker. See, even if you're not a big fan of Rare, the Kongversation is, to put it elegantly, fucking hilarious. Truthfully, there's a large portion of nearly every episode where Hyle and Chad(and sometimes Joe, Matt, Alastair, Jeff, and very rarely Cameron) aren't even on topic. To many, these tangents are the the heart of the show. The Beatles, The X-Files, various incarnations of The Tonight Show, various sitcoms, and American politicians of yesteryear are the typical tangential topics. If you are a fan of Rare, then boy, are you in for a treat. The Kongversation is the best active Donkey Kong-themed conversational podcast you'll find, although I consider the best overall (vaguely)DK-themed cast to be The Vine Audio Programme, which is also done by the folks at DK Vine and has been inactive for the better part of three years. Why am I posting this now? Well, mysterious section of my inner-psyche that keeps asking questions that conveniently set up the active portion of my brain for the next thing I want to talk about, tomorrow is a big day for the podcast. Remember when I mentioned Playtonic? I'm glad you do, because legendary Rare veteran and current Playtonic wizard Chris Sutherland is going to be the guest of honor on tomorrow's show. There's a damn good bet that some juicy information about Project Ukulele will be given during the podcast, not to mention other fun facts of Rareware past! If that juicy information isn't something you fancy, you'll be happy to find discussion of Tropical Freeze's Juicy Jungle in various other episodes. Joking aside, the show is bound to be fucking sweet. Interested?

This Bear and Bird duality is forever known as Banjo-Kazooie These games ,I have to say ,were great, 'till Rareware met an awful fate. What do you folks think about these games, were they super-cool or mega-lame? And now I must go, it's about that time, the last I make a post in rhyme.
