Rare(ware)

   0
Does anyone remember them? They changed thier name after Nintendo sold them to Microsoft. Is Rare a cooler name? I'm not sure, but I am sure of the failure they became.

A lot of Rareware games were before my time. They have always been making terrible games, like Nightmare on Elm Street. But they kept their company in success with titles such as Battletoads, Donkey Kong Country, and Killer Instinct. You may also know them from making the best game based of a movie ever. Yes, 007 Goldeneye.

Goldeneye had to be one of my favorite games at the time. Ah yes, I remember playing multi-p with my brothers or friends on that game for hours... Hours.... Really it was like a lot of hours.

Continueing their list of awesomeness... One of my favorite N64 games, Jet Force Gemini. Boo yeah, was that game ever great. I loved playing that with my brothers. I would always play that fucking magical jet propelled dog, Lupus. If I could have my own Lupus, damn that'd be great. I'd give an arm for that guy. But why his name is LUPUS is beyond me... Like really, ew.

They are also famous for making the Banjo-Kazooie games. But really I don't give a damn and never cared for those games. What can I say, I had Mario. I wasn't interested in a jackass with a jackass riding on his back.

About RetroSoldierone of us since 4:05 PM on 12.21.2009

How'd I get into gaming. Go figure I was only three years old. It was past the NES era and even the SNES had been out for sometime now. But my family was poor and I knew little about anything games. I was only freakin' three years old afterall.

My dad could finally afford an NES so he bought one from a pawn shop one day. He got SUper MArio Bros. 1 ,2 and 3, Duck Hunt, the first Lolo, and Kirby's Adventure. My dad wanted to play SMB3 first, so he showed my brother how to do it. I was blown away watching my dad teach my brother how to play. All I could say after that was gimme, gimme, gimme, I want a turn. I will never forget how amazing SMB3 seemed to me. So I played and played. After that I went on to our other games and beat those ones up too.

I started out with an NES, but thats not where it stopped. My dad later bought an SNES. By then me and my two brothers were heavy into games and begged our mother to buy us an N64. I will never forget how awesome Super MArio 64 was and the Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time. After that we begged my mother for a gamecube. By now I was playing video games the most and could beat my brothers hands down at anything.

I got a job. I started to buy my own games and systems from there. My brothers had fallen out of the video game scene and I was the kid no one wanted to play video games with. I bought myself a Wii and soon after an XBox360, future plans are with a PS3 as well. On top of th I haved owned every Nintendo portable system... besides a Virtual Boy.

I don't do online multiplayer, nor do I play games for Multiplayer. I play them for the one player experiences. But if you wanted to come to my house and play some Left4Dead, I wouldn't turn you down. I just much prefer the face to face method of playing multiplayer. I ain't a competitive person so your gamer score doesn't mean a dime to me.

But here is my gamer tag widget anyways, cause I think its really cute!
