@Realyouraduck VP's anniversary is November 9th, so this post was never planned to be.
No waiting to play Tooie nowadays, as we squished its big, windy worlds and colourful cast of characters into Rare Replay a few years back - if you've got an Xbox console (Series X|S or One) and @XboxGamePass you can play it right now! It looks lovely and crisp in 4k. Bree, etc.
Nostalgia bonus - this is how Banjo-Tooie appeared on our website in the year 2000, back when we lived each day in fear that the Millennium Bug would awake a legion of sentient Furbys to enslave the Earth. For people outside of America, this had to tide them over for five months!
Suppose we should also mark the anniversary of the game that delivered that big bird! So well done Banjo-Tooie - your age, as judged by American release date, now matches the sum of the Purple, Blue and Green Jinjo families. That's 20, Banjo-Tooie is 20. 20 years. 20 YEARS!
@RareLtd Not a single gassy cave in 20 years? Really now ... did she bribe someone?
@RareLtd That must also mean... Happy 20th birthday to my N64 controller stick hand injury, I guess!
