An annoucement coming next week!
Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts DLC!
"Fucking Karl Pilkington."That's not what you say, you say "Karl Pilkington has a head like a fucking orange"
Anyway, I'm really looking forward to the N&B DLC. I really loved the game, and am really glad to see some DLC.
Also, this might hint at sales being slightly better than most of us thought.
"Yaaaaaay! Also, I hope they announce more about Banjo-Tooie coming to XBLA. From what I remember, I think it was set to come out in March, which is NOW! Yay!"I thought it was April, which sounds more likely after Microsoft anoounced that Days of Arcade thing for the next 6 weeks
This is some of the best news I've heard in a while. I'm praying that Rare stick to their guns and make a sequel, it's a crying shame there aren't more people willing to play this game because of its look. Bring on the DLC, I'll pay whatever their asking for.
"TheGreatGuero said:Good point. It wasn't part of the list so it will probably be late April. Ugh. Oh well. I can't believe I am getting excited over an old port of an N64 game, but Rare will make you do that won't they? This will be a buy for me."Yaaaaaay! Also, I hope they announce more about Banjo-Tooie coming to XBLA. From what I remember, I think it was set to come out in March, which is NOW!

It looks like there has been a delay on the DLC annoucment
Hey guys, we have had to update the text on the Rare news post:
"So there you go. Expect more info to be out there soon (following a minor technical delay caused by Grunty’s gremlins dropping a spanner into the works), and in the meantime rest assured that the Lord of Games is keeping the Nuts & Bolts dream alive."
Sorry for the delay, I will give you an update as soon as possible. Just to iterate, the DLC is definitely not an April fool's joke, and will be arriving in the not too distant future.
"Awesome! I'd love to get back into the game, sporting Banjo's awesome beat-the-game tuxedo.Heck yes!
Banjo: N&B is probably my favourite game of all time. It combines my love of old games (In this case Banjo Kazooie) with my addiction to tinkering with stuff until I find perfection. I already have all the single player achievements so I think I'm gonna start a new game. I haven't played it in a couple of weeks due to buying Burnout Paradise but I think it's time to go back. I find Banjo to almost be therapeutic.
The DLC achievements have been unveiled:
Knock down all of the supporting cast in Ben Hurdle - 20G
Wheels on Fire
Burn an opponent's vehicle until it falls apart at the seams - 20G
Complete all of L.O.G.'s Lost Challenges once - 15G
Ultimate - Played The Game
Show Sssuper Klungo the real meaning of sssuper - 50G
Paint the Town Gold
Complete all of L.O.G.'s lost challenges to TT standard - 40G
Sssave The Universsse!
Complete all Lost Challenges in L.O.G.'s Choice and Player's Choice vehicles - 30G
Find the door to L.O.G.'s Lost Challenges - 5G
Old Ssskool Ssseekrit Area
Klungo not ssstupid, ussse old fake wall trick to hide Klungo goodnesss - 20G
L.O.G. Ranked Apprentice
Win one of the new DLC multiplayer games in a ranked match - 20G
Win all of the new DLC multiplayer games - 30G
I really hope the DLC is released soon
"FlipperDesert said:Yeah, but the Klungo Saves The World mini game was designed to be like an 8 bit game, and it's pretty obvious that this achievement refers to a 16-bit style sequel to that. It doesn't have to use the tech to be that style."CoolDrMoney said:I really doubt that game uses 16-bit tech""Ultimate - Played The GameYes! I can't wait for some 16-bit world saving."
Show Sssuper Klungo the real meaning of sssuper - 50G"
Looks like it's coming out on April 7th for 400 MS Points. There's going to be 250 points of additional achievements, a handful of new challenges, a new "arena" available in the Test-O-Track, and new multiplayer modes. Sadly, I doesn't look like they'll be adding any new parts to build with. There's also going to be some free Gamerpics available on Marketplace on the 7th, and Banjo-Tooie is coming very soon (though the final release date hasn't been announced yet).
Please buy this, as the Save Banjo Kazooie and Rare charity really needs your support. *Sniff* It's okay Rare, you'll be okay *sniff* Whyyyyyyyyyyy????
Yea I'll probebly be buying this, frack all the people who want more of the same game, Banjo Kazooie N&B was one of my GOTY's last year.
I downloaded it yesterday, I haven't put too much time into it yet, but liking the new types of challenges, and maybe it's because I haven't played the game for a while, but finding some of the challenges quite though, but I've only played about 20 mins so I haven't played a whole lot
I got the DLC and the challenges do seem tough, but I haven't even finished the game proper yet, so I'm not sure how it compares. Also, I haven't got the new Klungo levels yet! Do I need to finish all 12 challenges first or something? Hopefully I won't need the trophies.
I'm really disappointed with the DLC. I bought it today and I've been going at it for around an hour now. I have 4 out of 6 main challenges finished, and one colored puzzle piece. They took the most annoying things about the game (awkward-controlling L.O.G.'s choice missions), a map that wasn't designed to have challenges placed in it (the Test Room) and added in the necessity of beating every challenge twice to unlock the new Klungo levels. Ugh. I don't know if the new Klungo levels will make up for this bullshit or not. Probably not. Color me regretful.
yeah I would just like to say, FUCK the DLC. The game was very enjoyable, the races not intensely hard or frustrating and when you could do player's choice, it was just a matter of figureing out how to cheese the system, not in the DLC, each contest is a huge frustrating mess.
