I'll hold your hand while we cry for Rare
As the sands of time continue to drop in this hourglass called life, it's easy to forget things -- even major elements of our childhood. For instance, I completely forgot Rare was responsible for the amazing Battletoads series -- the subject of many hours of joy and ire all mixed into one giant blender of goodness (Battletoads & Double Dragon forever).
Of course, I was reminded in the most unlikely of places -- Kinect Sports Rivals, which has a Battletoad-themed vehicle. It always saddens me to remember how many incredible IPs Rare and Microsoft have at their fingertips, squandering them away with each passing year.
