Hello! My name is Ashley, and I love the Banjo-Kazooie series, and Rareware as a developer. I’m here to take you on a walk through my favorite series of all time, the Banjo-Kazooie trilogy (or “Banjo-Triloogie” as I like to call it. The G is soft like in ‘trilogy’ not like ‘loogie’.)
I’ll be playing each game on the Xbox 360, and showing off the renewed Stop n Swop feature, which was originally a dummied out mechanic meant to carry data between Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie, restored in the 360 versions. Joining me are several of my good friends, as rotating commentators.
Banjo-Kazooie was released in 1998 on the Nintendo 64 by Rare. It’s a 3D platformer starring both a bird and a bear. Released when I was five, it quickly became my favorite game. And over twenty years later, I still feel the same!
This version of the game is from the Xbox Live Arcade, because it’s the best version I’ve ever played. It features cleaner graphics, smoother framerates, and the long rumored Stop n Swop. The improvements they made will make your eyeballs pop!
My name is Ashley, and I will be playing. Rotating guests will be surveying. Join us for good times galore. I hope you don’t find these videos a bore!
