    For Tooie I'm completely sure they did. the environments and textures where way too large for the standard microcode, and let's not forget it didn't even need the expansion pak.
    Kazooie looks excellent but I'm note sure but from what I read Rare disassembled Nintendo's microcode to create their own and to Nintendo surprise the results where stunning.

    So they picked apart the N's microcode to guide them to creating their own, or did they actually use parts of Nintendo's code in their microcode? I can't imagine Nintendo letting them unless it was completely new code.

    Well, that's what I read at neogaf.
    But makes sense since Rare was a second party at that time, they probably constructed their microcode from Nintendo's and then showed the results and Nintendo gave them green light. or maybe they just analyzed what they found with their disassembling job and created a microcode from scratch, who knows.

    SM64 for me, it took the genre we all knew and loved and ripped up the rule book and blew us all away. i still fondly remember the first shoshinkai footage of it running and just being gob-smacked - the day i started saving up for one.

    After Banjo came swinging out the gate, it looks like Mario ultimately takes the belt in this first round of GBATemp fight club!
