Rare Replay: The Gem of E3
During this year’s E3, Microsoft announced a barrage of games and features. So much so that a
particular gem gone buried in all of the announcements. Rare announced a new IP which is cool because a company of their stature hasn’t produced any new games in quite a while. However, Rare Replay is what truly caught my eye.
Many gamers have been begging for Microsoft to give Rare creative freedom in making their own projects. This reverence comes from Rare’s history of making fantastic games. Banjo-Kazooie, Perfect Dark, and Killer Instinct are a few of the games that come to mind when reflecting on Rare’s prestigious lineage. This lineage is something that has been a massive concern of video game preservists. Many of these classic Rare titles are near impossible to find. Rare Replay is coming out August 4. It will set you back a massive $30. Sarcasm Intended. It will contain 30 Rare titles from throughout the years.
The games included in the Rare Replay are:
Snake Rattle N Roll
Digger T. Rock
R.C. Pro-Am II
Killer Instinct Gold
Jet Force Gemini
Conker’s Bad Fur Day
Grabbed by the Ghoulies
Perfect Dark Zero
Kameo: Elements of Power
Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts
Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise
This will be a perfect opportunity for new gamers to get an idea of the games that made Rare such a revered studio.
