The lights are on
A few months ago, a bitter argument broke out between Tim Turi, Ben Hanson, and myself. Mr. Turi had the audacity of claiming that Banjo Kazooie was a better game than Super Mario 64, and we spent far too much time yelling at each other about it. I wanted to reignite this discussion on Replay, which leads us to this week's episode.
Watch below to see Andrew Reiner and the three of us discuss Banjo Kazooie's place in history.

Awesome. Loved this game. I thought Mario 64 was the better of the two, but this game is definitely worth a look if you haven't played it.
I love a good replay
YES! BK is one the best N64 games ever. In my opinion BK is better than Mario 64 but both games are awesomee.
Mario 64 is better. The overworld was awesome. Boss fights. Its just awesome. I picked up Banjo and............ no feelings. Its just there.
Banjo Kazooie was an amazing title. Just from the range of attacks, and what you could do with the charater and the world made it better than Super Mario 64. Super Mario was amazing with how they presented the game and the levels you could go to, but it did not quite have the same feeling of achievement that Banjo did. Finding the honey combs laying around or having to go that extra mile to get one immediately made it better. Both are amazing titles, even if banjo copied Mario though.
I have never played this. Sad really
