    Nice, I finally traded Rare Replay the other day with the 70% bonus credit deal. Guess I don't have to worry about missing Conker anymore.

    •  

      How much did that trade in for?

      •  

        EB website says I got 12 carrots for it, so 12 something I guess.

        Not a lot I know, but I bought it for 15 new at JB 3 years or so back when I got my Xbox so all in all, not too much of a loss for years of enjoyment.

      And I finally get to see what all the fuss was about back in high school!

        Honestly, as someone who never had an N64 (or any game machine until Christmas 2004 for the record), they are incredibly overrated.

        I am a massive fan of the 3D platformer, Sly, Jak, Spyro, Crash, and that are some of my all time favorite games, so it's not like I'm a genre hater or anything. But most of the Rare games just didn't grab me all that much. Like I can look at it and be impressed for it by the time, but outside of Conker, I didn't really care for their N64 platformers. Goldeneye (not included in the set, and also by far their best game IMO) and Perfect Dark though are honestly some of the best shooters I've played, and that's coming from someone who didn't touch either until 2016. There's a lot of greats on the set though, Battletoads, Conker, Perfect Dark, Killer Instinct, and many more, but don't go into Banjo expecting to have your dick blown off because they're pretty bloody cookie cutter 3D platformer to me.

        But that's just my take, you might love them and that's cool too man. I'm not saying they're bad by any means, I still enjoyed them fine, but they are suuuuuuuper overrated in my opinion is all.

          Thanks. Not sure whether to be happy or sad that my dick will stay intact though.

          It is all relevant to the time they were released, of course you are going to say the games you played when you were young are better than ones you are playing 15 or more years after their release.

          I find the ones you mentioned overrated because I only played them recently compared to the N64 ones at their actual release.

          Not in the collection (probably because of IP issues with Nintendo) but Diddy Kong Racing was pretty game changing. It took the kart game formula like Mario kart and made a campaign around it. Sony later copied it and made Crash Team Racing but Diddy Kong Racing was pretty fun back in the day.

            @SlappersOnly: It's been on the list for a while!

            Nah, I really should say, like, my comment there is in response to strictly talking about if the games in 2019 would live up to the hype generated over the years. Throw the hype away and I can enjoy the games fine, I think they're all perfectly playable in current year and that alone is a testament to how obviously well made they are, like I respect the crap out of these games, and I respect the crap out of the fandom they have held onto for so damn long, if anything I wish I was there with you guys at the time, but uh, turns out being born in late August '96 makes it hard to play games that came out when you were in nappies.

            Certainly Goldeneye and Perfect Dark are two of my all time favorite shooters, but I have a huge ass boner affinity for the shooters of that era, if the name didn't give that away already.

              @TheDukeOfNukem: All good. Most games are definitely seen through rose tinted glasses and suffer from serious tech issues due to the era like collisions, camera controls, game saves etc. Rare had a few good hits so it does have high fandom in the gaming community. You turn on your favourite n64 game and instantly greeted by that spinning Rare Logo.

              It’s still amazing how polished the old games came out with the lack of patches and limitations of hardware. It’s crazy to think that Zelda: Ocarina of Time was made on a 32mb cartridge. Nowadays there’s so much space that it’s not cost effective to put that much effort into using assembly code.

              It also kind of helped the nostalgia. They had to sacrifice voice overs for text and repetitive sound effects because of audio file sizes but that’s what also makes it more memorable. Those repetitive sounds trigger old memories. If I randomly heard the sound of Link chugging a bottle of Lon Lon Ranch milk or Banjo doing a backflip I’d instantly recognise it.

    Sorry to hijack the comments, this seems to be the newest Xbox deal that’s kinda related (and the comments of the ultimate pass deal are probably not really checked anymore).

    I have two codes from a new Xbox One S which can only be claimed if you don’t have Gold or game pass and I have both. So I hope someone can redeem these codes :) Must be redeemed by 30/6/2019.

    14 day Xbox Live Gold trial
    4GM2D-N3P6R-MW89D-3GXRX-KP9V4

    1 month Xbox Game Pass trial
    VP6WG-23HG6-9KMH4-73TT7-FQMWZ

    Please reply if you claimed one or the other so others know the codes are used

    Just so I'm clear, having Game Pass Ultimate on Xbox also gives access to PC games?

    That's even better than I thought.
