How the Mighty (Rare) Have Fallen.

I find it rather funny that a year after they launched their youtube channel the comments section has day on day been loaded with complaints! (Its /rarelimited)

People are either moaning they dont make any games these days besides Kinect Sports, which everyone is moaning at, as well as Nintendo fans telling them to come back to Nintendo! OH just noticed they are moaning at Kinect Sports 2 as well, some commenting they hope it fails and so do they or that it fails and makes them go back to their roots.

I dunno if it was due to people who moved on or the guiding hand Nintendo gave, but Rare certainly are a shadow of the company they once were..Im tempted to Blame Microsoft. Also kind of sad that their 2 latest projects (the Avatars and Kinect Sports) are rips off (but granted much better) versions of ideas Nintendo did first on this console cycle. So that hasn't changed!

9 out of every 10 people who hate Rare now actually don't know what they're talking about. Their games suck now, we already know that. My point is though, that everyone when screams for them to come back to Nintendo. What they fail to realize is that Rare never left Nintendo in the first place. Microsoft BOUGHT rare from Nintendo. Nintendo would have to buy them back. With the quality of their current games, the price it would take to buy them back, and the economic crisis Nintendo is currently facing it would be foolish for them to buy Rare back now.

Considering the fact that Rare has lost almost all of their talented people by the time Microsoft bought them, the only good thing to happen with Nintendo buying them back is seeing Banjo and Kazooie in the next Smash

Yer Im surprised more dont realise that. My guess is Nintendo sold them willingly having sensed their glory days were over and I dont think in their current state Nintendo would be intersted in them at a bargin basement price.
I think some get confused due to their DS and GBA games. One assumes them making a 3DS game isnt impossible - Possibly the best chance for a goldeneye port/update.
I might be wrong on this but it kinda looks like Retro was what they spent the pennies on - If so a wise (kind of) swap. Retro to me are the new Rare. Retros standards might even be a touch higher.
