I think it's great how the original negative reaction to Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts has mostly faded away, with gamers having taken the stick out of their spiceholes long enough to see that the game is looking quite good.
Speaking of "looking quite good," this new trailer for the BK's "Showdown Town" area is pretty visually gorgeous. What I like about Rare games is how they are able to produce some of the best graphics available on the 360 through use of actual artistry as opposed to "photorealism."
This game looks like a lot of comic fun to me. Definitely the kind of thing Microsoft could stand to be branching into more instead of focusing entirely on SingStar rip-offs and Eyetoy parodies.
