Banjo-Kazooie

Recommended Posts

NB96    850

Started playing this on Monday when I copped the Rare Replay collection for £7.99 brand new. Why did nobody tell me about this gem? They even have a sequel (also on the collection) as well as Conker's Bad Fur Day, a game with a cult following.

 

Gameplay has aged well, the only old thing is that it's a collectathon I guess but still basically the same formula as Super Mario Odyssey.

 

I recommend this game and I hope these two get into Super Smash Bros Ultimate this year.

Rare being sold to microsoft kinda bitterly may preclude that - it was not a happy breakup.

DK64 best banjo kazooie game 

I know I'm getting my hopes up but I bet they're getting in. Previously on N64, classic (reviews at the time said it was better than SM64), Phil Spencer said he would allow it, and they do well on Western and Japanese polls (and from what I've heard people think they scored nicely on the smash ballot from a few years ago). Plus two leakers who have gotten things right in the past say there will be Microsoft representation in the game.

 

If it happens it will be awesome, they would have a diverse moveset thanks to all the moves you can learn in the game too. From Microsoft's point of view there's no reason not to allow it at all, it's just if Nintendo want them which is the trouble. Banjo & Kazooie haven't been relevant for a long time but to be fair neither has King K. Rool and he got in. But hopefully they will add him as a classic who deserves a place.

I hear Banjo-Tooie is even better as well so I will make sure to try that as well.

The very same asset Microsoft haven't done anything with in 10 years and that could be revived with one of the worlds best advertisements (being in a Smash game).

 

Microsoft would surely want this, it's just that Nintendo might not want to advertise a Microsoft IP.

I 100% Kaz and Tooie every few years. So much fun.

 

DK64 scarred me as in order to beat the game and get the Rare coin or whatever you have to beat the MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCDHSIVUSVCH harder version of the original DK game and I can't fucking do it.

Banjo Kazooie/Tooie were among my favorite games from childhood.

as great as the games were at the time, and dont get me wrong they still play phenomenally. trying to play them as they were originally with an N64 control scheme is a nightmare and a half.

 

i personally prefer Yooka-Laylee anyway

I beat Witchyworld from Banjo-Tooie earlier today. I'm going through Tooie a lot more slowly, idk why but I just don't like it as much as Banjo-Kazooie.

I'm at Grunty Industries right now and I don't know if I have the willpower to carry on and beat Banjo-Tooie. It's just such a step down, I hate finding a Jiggy only to find out that I have to go somewhere else that I don't know where, do 1-2 things and then try my best to remember where the Jiggy was. This game is just so much more tedious, in Banjo-Kazooie everything is simple and I can 100% each world before moving on to the next. Maybe that makes the game simpler but simplicity is great in a platformer.

 

While I think of it, Tooie is just about finding the warp pads in each world so you can run gack and forth, it's not a platformer like the original is imo. I'm sure others like the exploration but it's just not my kind of game.

you might like yooka laylee. it puts more focus on having one single large open level like in the original Banjo Kazooie, it still has a lot to find and explore. but its all naturally done with very little backtracking within levels. occasionally you'll go back to levels with new powerups to explore more. but that's about it.
