Comic 52: A Rare Opportunity - 3

found in Rare A Rare Opportunity - 3

When Nintendo released the N64, Rare went on to make games for that console... including Goldeneye, which would go on to be a N64 must-have and make the FPS genre huge on consoles. (A bit too huge, if you ask me...)

I'm especially proud of that last panel... you can tell I had fun making that one.

Also, the computer-head guy is PC. Didn't intend to draw him just yet, but suddenly I got this good idea for a gag...

Oh yeah, I remember Goldeneye dominating everything.

I love PC's BSoD face. :)

Yes, that was a great time for the N64 :D

"The name is Ware... Rareware." Lol I love that so much!

Hehe, yes :D

And Perfect Dark.

Actually, a lot of good shooters on Nintendo consoles.
The whole Metroid Prime series.
Doom 64 was pretty good.
GBA ports of Wolf3D and Doom 1-2 which were well done for GBA games.

Indeed, Nintendo also got their share of shooters

Whoa, I just realized how skillfully I avoided Daikatana.
It was not on purpose :D

Ahhh, yes. Goldeneye from Nintendo's golden boy, at least back then.

by Zanreo at 28th May 2015, 12:01 PM

Yup, it was a pretty great success, and Rare kept making great games :D

great games, and Star Fox Adventures

Oh, shush, PC. Gaming was still superior on consoles back in the days of Goldeneye.

Poor Sega, though.

by Zanreo at 29th May 2015, 3:55 PM

Hehe, yes... PC just doesn't seem to understand that.

And yeah, it's only gonna get worse from here for Sega...

chair!!! Kind of repeated chair he he.
I really like how Nintendo came strong on this one, and the references at 007 lore are cool. I actually remember the game. I like how Nintendo admits knowing close to nothing about shooters ant the movie!

by Zanreo at 30th May 2015, 5:43 AM

And yeah, luckily she knew a company that did know more...

More chair. :P

I love what you did with the OO7 theme, and this entire page is great fun! :D

by Zanreo at 30th May 2015, 2:11 PM

Him showing up in the eye of the gun is the best panel!

by Zanreo at 3rd Oct 2015, 7:58 PM
