In case you've completely forgotten everything you remember about Rare's bear and bird sequel Banjo-Tooie, the new trailer and screens for the Xbox Live Arcade version should jog your memory nicely.

Isn't it amazing how your mind flavors your recollection of older games? Thinking back to my time playing Banjo-Tooie on the Nintendo 64, the game I see in my head looks nothing like the game being played in the trailer. It's like running into an ex-girlfriend and wondering if she always had that lazy eye or if it's something that she's developed recently. That's a purely hypothetical example, mind you. Of course I realized she had a lazy eye. I just looked past it, just like she used to look past me.

What were we talking about again?
