Hmmm.... that article about the Stop and Swap between Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong 64 was very interesting.

SM64 had nothing to do with Banjo... Even though there is a character conection, Mario VS. DK, DK's nephew is Diddy, and Diddy raced Banjo in Diddy Kong Racing. Uh-oh, am I spaming?

There's also Tiptup. another connection between DK and Banjo.

What I'm saying is if you like SM64 and SMS, Fifth, then why are you talking about how you have to go over on each level? On those two games, u had to go over them like 6 or 7 times. Really, I like to look at DK64 the same style as SM64 and SMS you have to do stuff outside of the actual levels and go over each level several times. I think as all three of SM64, SMS and DK64 the same kind of game.

I never really played Banjo-Kazooie. I owned Donkey Kong 64, it was fun at first, but quickly got very repetitive, very repetitive, very repetitive...

And DK 64 was very difficult. Slow controls and a bad camera are not very good features in a game. Great graphics though!

Too bad Rare is making their games (including Banjo-Kazooie) exclusively for Xbox... Here's a list of all the Rare games exclusive to Xbox:

Banjo-Kazooie
Perfect Dark
Grabbed by the Ghoulies (which is very fun with very simple controls)
Conker's Bad Fur Day

You forgot about Kameo: The Elements of Power.

Well they can keep Conker, but I'm gonna miss BK.

Oh yeah, forgot about Kameo, which was going to be made for the GameCube before Microsoft bought Rare and all of their game franchises.

On question though, out of all the game's Rare has created, why don't they get Donkey Kong Country? Rare created the DKC series for Nintendo, just like they created Banjo-Kazooie, so why don't they get the rights to DKC? I know Donkey Kong was originally created by Nintendo, but couldn't they have a dual-liscencing agreement where Nintendo and Rare share the rights to the Donkey Kong games?

And weren't Banjo-Kazooie and Perfect Dark both liscenced by Nintendo? Doesn't that mean Nintendo is the owner of those games?

No. Nintendo just had a helping hand. The only reason why the Nintendo logo was in Banjo-Kazooie, is because Nintendo help Rare into creating it. Either that, or it was because Rare was Nintendo's property at the time.

"...out of all the game's Rare has created, why don't they get Donkey Kong Country?"
Because Donkey Kong still belongs to Nintendo.

"Rare created the DKC series for Nintendo, just like they created Banjo-Kazooie, so why don't they get the rights to DKC?"
You must not have ever played any old Donkey Kong games.

"I know Donkey Kong was originally created by Nintendo, but couldn't they have a dual-liscencing agreement where Nintendo and Rare share the rights to the Donkey Kong games?"
No, because Nintendo doesn't like Rare anymore.

"And weren't Banjo-Kazooie and Perfect Dark both liscenced by Nintendo? Doesn't that mean Nintendo is the owner of those games?"
Licensing simply means that it's legally published for Nintendo. It has nothing to do with ownership.
