And are currently working on such projects for the Microsoft Xbox, Conker: Live and Reloaded and Kameo: Elements of Power.

Jim: "Get lost, I'd rather go play Grabbed by the Ghoulies and Conker: Live and Reloaded at home and own some nerds on Xbox Live with Conker!"

One of the greatest game developers ever. They gave us sexy N64 games like Banjo Kazooie, Banjo Tooie, Conker's Bad Fur Day, Perfect Dark, and some others. The GameCube seemed like a good upgrade for Rare, better graphics and controls would allow them to create even awesomer games. However the company was royally fucked up the ass by Microsoft, destroyer of all that is fun and cool. Because of this we will never see a good Banjo sequel (but rather a crap game where our favorite bear and bird look like retarded homosexuals and build cars), we will have to play the completely destroyed lump of shit Perfect Dark Zero, and Video Gaming as we know it will never be the same. However I still have my N64, fully working to remind me of how great Rareware used to be.
Me: Time to play Rareware's new Perfect Dark Game, I bet its better then the N64 version!!!

*puts in game and begins playing*

Me 10 minutes later: I'm gonna go fucking hang myself.

Me 10 years ago: OMG!!! Banjo Kazooie, Conker, Perfect Dark!!! these guys at Rareware really knoe how to make a good game. They'll never sell out to a bigger company just for the money and produce crappy games... never!

A company that was in its prime back in the SNES days(DK Country games mostly), and some of the N64 days (Jet Force Gemini, Conker's BFD), but nowadays lack especially in the departments of promptness and gameplay development. I.E. their famous collect-a-thon gameplay and their way of delaying games constantly...
Rareware WAS awesome, but now they have slated Kameo (a well-anticipated game) for XBox 2! Surprised people still have faith in these guys...

a British game-developing company that careated the still-awesome titles Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Donkey Kong 64 and Conker's Bad Fur Day. Rareware lived it's glory days until 2002, when the assholes from Microsoft's game department (basically game companies they bought out, then dumped) bought them out. Killing every Nintendo-related project they were making.
Microsoft killed Rareware, the only things left are the corpse that is Rareware being reanimated by Microsoft, fucking bastards. the only thing good in Rare's games now are the awesome graphics.

Mysterious force that keeps you from completeing your goal.
Your installing Neverwinter Nights and your computer freezes.

"Rareware got me again!"

Usually said in frustration.
