After reading the comments on the new Banjo Kazooie trailer I couldn't help but to be somewhat annoyed by the cynicism displayed by the Dtoid community toward the new direction the franchise is taking. Sure it's different from what we where expecting but it looks very fun and quite innovative actually. Watch this video interview and see what I mean.
As you can see the new vehicle creation system has a sort of "do it you're own way approach"
sort of similar to the gameplay style of Bioshock. And I don't see how Rare has made anything that sucked other then Grabbed by The Ghoulies. I liked Kameo quite a bit actually, sure it wasn't perfect(the controls where flawed among other problems) but it was a fun and very pretty looking game and one of the best of the 360's launch. I haven't played Perfect Dark Zero or Viva Pinata but I'd heard mostly good things about the latter and will probably get the sequel. The complaint I found most silly was the graphics. Everyone was saying how the graphics didn't look that good but they looked jawdropping to me. The textures where clean and attractive and the style was creative and colorful. And if you notice in the video interview, the framerate is not that bad. One last thing I'd like to mention is that when Super Mario Galaxy was first revealed, many people where quite skeptical but it turned out to be one of the best games of this generation and it's currently the fourth best reviewed game on Game Rankings. BK:N&B could turn out to suck for all I know but so could any other upcoming game.
