#322 Donkey Kong Country 3

813th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1996 Developer: Rare Publisher: Nintendo It feels like Donkey Kong always took some weird turns in his gaming appearances. Originally, the ape was Mario’s big enemy, and vice versa. Skipping ahead a couple of years (and, conveniently, this game) he appeared in the Mario […]

760th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Nintendo 64 Year of Release: 1997 Developer: Rare Publisher: Nintendo Finishing my Rare Replay games, Blast Corps feels like an odd dead end. It was built to be a building destroying game, and so that’s what we’ll be doing. We apparently have a variety of vehicles to work […]

759th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Nintendo 64 Year of Release: 2000 Developer: Rare Publisher: Nintendo Rare Replay time! We got the collection some time ago and two final games in it had been laying dormant for a while, so now it’s time to get through it – ticking them both off around the […]

660th played so far Genre: Fighting Platform: Arcade/SNES Year of Release: 1994 Developer: Rare Publisher: Midway/Rare/Nintendo While I had the Rare Replay disc out, this came up, so it felt like a good game to pick up next. I’ve had a couple of Killer something fighting and shooting games on the list. Of course a […]

659th played so far Genre: Action Platform: Nintendo 64 Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Rare Publisher: Rare I’m not sure I’ve mentioned our Rare Replay purchase before, which is perfect for this blog as well as easier access to a bunch of classics. I dug it out today for a random game, although we’ll have […]

594th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: NES Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Rare Publisher: Nintendo/Sega For some reason, I kept confusing this game with Marble Madness for a long time. It doesn’t make any sense, none of it really matches, but the isometric perspective is similar and I haven’t looked much beyond screenshots. I’ll […]

#809 Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts

Tags: , , , ,

580th played so far Genre: Platform Platform: Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Rare Publisher: Microsoft Moving around the canon of Banjo-Kazooie a bit, for various reasons, Nuts and Bolts feels like a late entry for a 3D platforming hero – the genre seemed to be forgotten about around this point. This game draws […]

30th game played so far Genre: First Person Shooter Platform: Nintendo 64 Year of Release: 2000 Developer: Rare Publisher: Nintendo Okay we’re going for a bit of a Rare overdose but we promise that this is the last of their games which we will be covering for a while. Maybe… Perfect Dark was originally released […]

29th game played so far Genre: Platformer Platform: Nintendo 64 Year of Release: 1998 Developer: Rare Publisher: Nintendo Whilst Goldeneye 007 may be Rare’s most famous and highly rated game I think it is fair to say that Banjo-Kazooie may be the epitome of what makes a Rare game. It’s cute cartoon visuals and wide […]

25th game played so far Genre: First Person Shooter Platform: Nintendo 64 Year of Release:1997 Developer: Rare Publisher: Nintendo The latest in a long line of classics (thanks again Kat) that are covering in this blog. Goldeneye 007 is the first of a rather select few of movie tie-in games that we will be featuring […]
