VGC: Xbox is planning a Banjo-Kazooie revival, developer claims

DK64 has a metacrtic score of 90 since that matters to you.
EDIT:User score of 8.6. Higher than anything you listed under xbox.

it doesn't matter to me at all. like I established above. people bring up scores to make a point so I counter with scores.

review scores are useless nonsense. and DK64 is terrible. boring movement and a collectathon structure that is so over the top that it really could be a parody.

you not only have tons of shit to collect aimlessly, but some of that shit is also locked behind certain characters for no mechanical reason, just color coded to stretch the same levels out even more

Not really. You showing games like Perfect Dark and pinata games that nobody remembers shows that.
Pretty harsh assessment but the first Viva Piñata game sold over twice as many copies as Ico and I’d be surprised to hear that being used as a negative against Ico.

Idk man. An excellent 3D platformer is hard to make. But if there’s someone who could pull it off under Microsoft belt then its definitely Doublefine.

When have I even hinted my opinion is above all. Don't get them little panties in a bunch because I feel your all time greatest is ok. I'm sure you'll go build a hatemobile in nuts and bolts and feel better
YouTubers’ opinions are laughable, streamers’ opinions are laughable, my opinion isn’t worth anything, @01011001’s opinion isn’t worth anything . Seems to be a common theme if you’re struggling to join the dots. I’m really not bothered by your opinion, you’re welcome to carry on ignorantly shouting it from the roof tops :messenger_tears_of_joy: I’ll leave the pantie wearing to you mr swipe your wife:messenger_tears_of_joy:

I think Gamepass is a reason why this franchise can return, you're no longer tied to an old sales model and are providing a more diverse set of content for a service, gives this sort of franchise a chance again.
They should also reboot Jet Force Gemini.

Then don’t post meta scores if you feel they don't matter. You should have paused for your cause when you saw PDZ at a respectable number.

Viva was good, I can't front. But don't ever in your life compare it to ico, a classic. Viva may have sold twice as many, but ico was the better game by several magnitudes.

Gemini never grabbed me and I was a huge Rare fanboy in those days.

well that was part of the idea. see how high the critic scores are flr PDZ? that is a great demonstration on why game reviews are useless and to be ignored in such discussions.

but I fight fire with fire, if scores are brought up as a metric on which game is supposedly good and which is not, then I'll come back at you with some scores too.

and as you can see this doubled as a demonstration on why they are dumb with that critics score of PDZ ;)

I'll start by saying.......yes YouTubers and streamers opinions are laughable when you said some agree and think that's some kind of evidence. 01011001 01011001 showed some meta scores and that's what I went after mainly, and they agreed. The only constant is you not understanding I don't think Banjo is the greatest 3d platformer of all time. Not even top 3 just because fuck Banjo. And I'm curious if you know what swipe is. Do you?? Please answer that.

You are one strange hombre my man :messenger_tears_of_joy:

I don’t care what your opinion is, but you’re welcome to it. Just to refresh your memory, it was you that came after me for stating my opinion :messenger_tears_of_joy:

I kinda get you, but Banjo brought up Banjo scores. We both know Mario scored higher and we both, be real, know Mario is the better game.

Rare has sucked for a long time though, let's not kid ourselves

since I'm all about movement in my platformers I agree that Mario 64 is better.

snappier controls + more depth + less clutter in the controls.

basically it does more with less and is snappier

I said Banjo being the greatest 3d platformer ever was an asinine statement. Ok.....I gave you my opinion and as you said, you don't care. Say hyperbolic shit, get push back from a real one. You even brought up meta, and that shit was funny because it's not higher than the 64 goat.

Like I said, only your opinion is valid :messenger_tears_of_joy:

I don't think review scores are completely useless, but launch title cannon fodder, big grains of salt.

Depends on the developer, it needs to be amazing. I have 0 faith tbh.

I wish insomniac wasn't playstation because them in tandem with double fine writing would be great.

I'm sure Rare have just had their biggest game in their history, they are doing just fine.
 
I was being sarcastic.

A bit of life advice for the two of you, if you don’t like something that’s fine. Maybe don’t come in to thread about that topic and try to derail it for other people who do though.

Peace.
Who derailed you fucking whiny loon? You made a comment 🤣, and it got a reaction. Saying a game is the best of all time in a stacked genre, you get push back.
