Bought Banjo Kazooie. High hopes, I've never played it.

Yep, bought the game after hearing nothing but good things. That, and I've loved just about every other Rare game.

25$ for the game, and Tooie is on my wishlist.

Any comparisons to Dk64 or Conker?

Re: Bought Banjo Kazooie. High hopes, I've never played it.

glad to hear it! The clerk said it was only like 10 hours long though, which is kind of disappointing to hear. Must be a good 10 hours from all the praise though.

Re: Bought Banjo Kazooie. High hopes, I've never played it.

Only 10 hours long? If you focus on the main part of the storyline, maybe. Getting everything is a different story. Especially first time through, you're liable to spend more than ten hours just trying to get to the final part / get passed it. Maybe that's just me, though. Anyways, after getting all the Jiggies and Jigsaw pieces, I've spent a grand total of about 30+ hours. The average length of an RPG if you focus mostly on the main quest.
Bit of information: Donkey Kong 64 uses the same engine as Banjo Kazooie, which is why it feels so similar to the BK. If you liked DK64, you'll love BK just as much as everyone else.

Like most games if you focus on the main quest it doesnt take long to finish. Collect the jiggies, then see how long it takes

Re: Bought Banjo Kazooie. High hopes, I've never played it.

I consider myself somewhat of a completionist these days. Actually I'd say I'm full on completionist considering I put myself through the Mario Sunshine Pinball machine, blue coins, and Poison leaf recently xD

Anyways, was hoping someone would prove the clerk wrong and say it's more than 10 hours. 30 sounds perfect! Looking forward to it.

Already got a good chunk of the first world done I think. Well, I'm missing one jigsaw piece, but everything else is collected for the most part.

Yeah, it does play a lot, and look a lot like DK64, which is definitely a plus! I've noticed a lot of similar sound effects to other games though. A lot I can't name, but I know the mini chimp in the first world sounds like the chimp in the DK64 pause screen. Kazooie during the ground pound sounds like the party star in mario party 5. Those are the only two I can name for sure.

Edit: Something about the look and feel of these n64 rare games, is just golden to me. I love it

Congrats on picking up the best N64 game ever. Rare's best game too.
I feel like you overpaid, but that's just me.

Have fun getting all 900 notes.

25$ Yeah, probably a bit overpriced, but if you ask me; it's a Reasonable price for a 30 hour game. Not to mention these games from this era are great to me. Paying 25$ for a game from this era that I'll enjoy wins spades over 70$ for one of today's games that are not usually fun to me.

Also, comparing prices, the play and trade sold it for 25$, while the other retro game store was selling it for 40$ + if I remember right. I'd say it's alright.

900 notes? You do remember I've 101% DK64, right? Collectathons are fun to me

Re: Bought Banjo Kazooie. High hopes, I've never played it.

Yeah have fun with those first few levels. It gets a whole lot harder to collect everything in the last few levels. Tooie was great too. Too bad the third was such a disaster and Rare made it so different.

If it's not broken, don't fix it.

Re: Bought Banjo Kazooie. High hopes, I've never played it.

The clerk was also telling me Nuts & Bolts was good. Just said something about not comparing it to the original 2, and looking at it as a spinoff. I haven't played nuts & Bolts though, so I wouldn't know. All I know is don't count on a third game, rare is dead sadly. Yes, I know they're still around, but everyone good that worked at the company is long gone. In my mind, Rare is dead, they should have never left Nintendo.

The only way Banjo-Kazooie could have been more up your alley is if they stuck a random roller coaster sim in the middle of it.

I've never cared for 3D platformers. Glad you took a chance and found something you liked out of it though.

Rare, what a sad story.
Indeed, I'd go as far as to say they were my favourite game company.

Donkey Kong Country 1-3, Killer Instinct, Jetpac, Diddy Kong Racing, DK64, Conker's Bad Fur day, list goes on.

"Were" being the key word.

Anyways, I'll post a bit more on Banjo-Kazooie after I played a bit more here.

---------- Post added at 10:51 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:35 PM ----------

Hold the phone... Just ran into something a little annoying. I left my game earlier to have supper and watch a movie with my folks. Made sure I saved and all, and the game has recorded me to have say 94 music notes in the first world for example. Well, now all the music notes are back in the world now that I'm playing it again, but it's only going to count the ones I haven't found... That's a bit of a pain, I'm sorry. Nothing that's going to wreck the game for me, not at all, just a bit confused as to why'd they do that?

Even before RARE they were Ultimate Play the Game, google it up if you don't already know the story. There was an excellent write up issue of Retro Gamer a few months ago too.

Notes are always reset when you exit a world (or if you die), if you want a perfect note score, you have to find them ALL in a single shot.

this one steven?

Edit: never mind, not it now that I re-read your post. Interesting still. Wouldn't mind Nintendo re-acquiring them, allows Nintendo to have a hand in sequels and even release old rare games on VC that they previously couldn't.

Re: Bought Banjo Kazooie. High hopes, I've never played it.

The GBA Bajno-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge is actually decent if you want to give that a try, it plays a different story (between 1 & 2) and is as close as your going to get for a 3D platformer on GBA.

Thats the corresponding blog to magazine I was referring to. The magazine is a physical magazine, you can buy it a chapters, about 30 bucks an issue though, but it is a collection of 4 issues I think.

Re: Bought Banjo Kazooie. High hopes, I've never played it.

I love Banjo Kazooie, but sadly, i never beaten the game.

The Notes are exactly like Mario's coins in Mario 64. A pain in the ass.

Alright Steven, interesting.

Pretty impressed so far must say. I can see how getting the notes will be a pain later on. Kind of thinking I should get everything else in the world, then do the music notes later, that way everything is unlocked and I know where to find them all.

I'm kind of seeing how this can be a much shorter game at this rate. Depends how many worlds there are at the same time? However, gotten the first two worlds practically done in less than a few hours. All good and fine though, I'm enjoying what's there. I suppose I do draw a lot of comparisons to DK64 too which is like 100 hours long. Worlds in that take several hours each, and just seems like more to do.

Levels get a lot longer as you progress. Especially if you want to complete everything.
