Comic 54: A Rare Opportunity - 5

(Actual upload date: 8 July 2015)
Hey! So I haven't updated for a while... This is mostly because I've recently been moving to a new apartment, and been to a con right after that... So I haven't had too much time to work on my comic lately. But now I'm back, and ready to continue Rare's story! (Even though this page is kinda rushed...)

Rare has had enough, wants more money for development, and decides to leave. But who's going to give him the money he needs for his games? Well...

I wonder if Conker was Rare's slap to Nintendo.
One of the last if not THE last game for them plus well, the game itself and on a Nintendo console...

Hmm, yeah, you might wonder...
Apparently Nintendo didn't want to promote it too much, or so I heard

Will Rareware survive the deadly secret of Gates' Vault?! Tune in next time, same Consolers time, same Consolers channel!

What a twist! This is where it's starting to get interesting...

Oh Rare. You used to be so awesome. Haven't seen much from them since those days, though.

Yeah... until recently, Rare's time at Microsoft started with disappointing sale after disappointing sale and then just got put to work on Kinect. Kinda sad considering what they did in the past...

Aww... Poor Nintendo...

Yeah, she's not taking losing one of her greatest and most popular companies very well...

Poor Nintendo indeed. Poor Rare for that matter considering how things went. >_>

This sure is bad news for both of them...

It truly was a sad day when Rare left Nintendo

Don't even remind me of Banjo and Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts

I like MS ripped-sleeve vest. The one time we dealt with them back in the 90s the MS executive was wearing sweat pants. I guess we were too small to make an effort. :)

Oh, I see! Yeah, maybe they didn't bother that much...
