I get a lot of crap for being such a Rare fan, even sticking with them today. Well, not sticking with them in terms of buying their games, but I can always appreciate the quality in Viva Pinata and Kameo (and even Perfect Dark Zero).

Rare is one of my favorite developers of all-time, and I have a soft spot for them. It is a complete shame to see them get bought out from Nintendo, but I continue to appreciate their games nonetheless.

I'll always be a Rare fan (unless they build an unholy army bent on genocide and puppy killing) They may not be as good as their hey day of Goldeneye, Blast Corp etc. Still they make some good games and what they have in development shows lots of promise.

I have to say that I am very pleased with the amount of support Rare has shown for Nintendo. I am a Nintendo fan (who here isn't?) as well as a fan of Rare, especially their previous work. I was saddened when they were bought out by Microsoft. Efforts such as Viva Pinata and Kameo have been good, but I would have rather seen such games on a Nintendo platform.

Thankfully, Microsoft doesn't have a portable system out, and, seeing the success of the DS and the fact that Microsoft is competing more against Sony than Nintendo, Rare is able to release some stuff for the DS. I tried out Diddy Kong Racing DS, and I'll admit that it gives a fuzzy little feeling to see that old Rare logo on a Nintendo system. ;D
