Random scribblings by a prick. Enjoy.

First Banjo 3 and Viva Pinata 2 shots hit the web

leave a comment »

Just a couple of days before Microsoft’s Gamer Day (coverage forthcoming), the first shots of Banjo 3 ans Viva Pinata 2 have found their way onto the net’. While Viva Pinata 2 looks every bit the sequel to the orginal, with a very similar graphical style and interface, Banjo 3 is much harder to call.

From some shots the title appears to have racing sections, with Banjo and Kazooie driving various wheeled contraptions and in others, the feathery and furry duo are seen running about a landscape and sliding down ziplines. Whilst Rare has recently gone on record to deny that it’s a racing game, many rumors abound that the title could be one that uses Microsfot’s much rumoured motion sensing controller.

This would at least, pay certain credence to Rare’s claim that the gameplay in Banjo 3 is ‘completely different and not what people were expecting’ when compared to previous titles.

Personally, why can’t MS just give everyone a proper platforming sequel to the Banjo Kazooie games that were on N64, is it really that hard?

Anyways, I digress. Links for both sets of screenshots from are below:
