‘Devil May Cry’: The 3D Action Innovator

Craig Sharpe
Shigeru Miyamoto’s Super Mario 64 defined contemporary 3D platforming: that’s a fact. Before the diminutive plumber made the transition to a lesser-flat plane of existence, the video game industry had seen its fair share of 2D platformers. In a market already saturated with Mega Men, Castelvanias and Ninja Gaidens, audiences were hungry for...

15 years later, looking back at the ever depressing ending to ‘Conker’s Bad Fur Day’

Ricky D Fernandes
Following his first appearance in Diddy Kong Racing, Conker’s first solo game was Conker’s Pocket Tales for the Game Boy Color.

Judging by the Disney-like presentation, some may think that Conker’s Bad...

Awesome Mixtape Vol. 2: Best of Rare’s Soundtracks

Ricky D Fernandes
Over the years, Rare developed some of our favourite video games, but what many people often forget (and sometimes don’t acknowledge) is the superb soundtracks composed for their critically acclaimed games such as Donkey Kong Country, GoldenEye 007, Banjo-Kazooie, Perfect Dark, and Conker’s Bad Fur Day. Working with such musicians...

Rare Replay: ‘Conker’s Bad Fur Day’ Hilariously Crude and Lowbrow…and Loving It

Aaron Santos
Very few developers have managed to take an established character and completely flip the script the way Rare has with Conker. What was once a loveable cute red squirrel with humble beginnings on the Gameboy Color eventually changed into the foul-mouthed, gun-toting, alcohol-swilling Rare icon that we all love to this very day. An...
