  • News GoldenEye Storyline Trailer Takes Us Behind the Scenes

    Plot lines, tanks, and more!

    When GoldenEye 007 launches next month, it will undoubtedly offer gamers a lot that wasn't available in the Nintendo 64 original. Online play might be taking the centre spotlight, but the game's narrative will also play an important part in James Bond's 2010 return. Bruce Feirstein, screenwriter for the GoldenEye film, has been brought in to update the game's narrative..

  • News The Latest GoldenEye Vignette Shows a Lot of Character

    Ah yes. There's the vertically-challenged little...

    Back in the days of GoldenEye 007 for the Nintendo 64, choosing your character had the potential to be as strategic as the choice of weapons or the place of combat. Well, when we say strategic, we actually mean questionably unsportsmanlike. Okay, let's just say it. Anyone who chose Oddjob was a bit annoying. Activision has just released a trailer..

    GoldenEye feels the hand of CoD

    Ah, Activision: we should have known you'd come up with this. Whilst its Call of Duty series continues to devour gaming hours like nobody's business, the publisher has taken some of the series' winning elements and slotted them neatly into upcoming Bond 'em up GoldenEye. Not only will the game feature an online experience system opening up new perks and killstreaks..

  • News Original GoldenEye Designer Suspicious of Wii Publisher's Eye for Gold

    Though developer Eurocom is in his good books

    Whether Activision is all about the money isn't really for us to say, but one thing most will agree on is that it has several franchises in its pockets into which at any given time the company can reach, pulling out a sequel or spin-off. So with the upcoming revival of the GoldenEye name, the publisher's motivation is being questioned by one of the..

  • News Rare Reveals Nintendo Wanted to Cancel GoldenEye

    The Bond title nobody wanted but everybody loves

    Ahh, GoldenEye 007: so many wasted hours, so many headshots, so many arguments over Oddjob. It all could have been so different had Rare acted on a letter sent by Nintendo that pulled the plug on the shooter. Speaking to British magazine EDGE, Studio Director Mark Betteridge revealed the team's initial trepidation when approached by Nintendo to..

  • News GoldenEye Multiplayer Doubles-Up but Loses its Voice

    Eight players, no voices

    James Bond always manages to take down megalomaniacal scientists, gamblers and supernationalists with just a few gadgets and some sharp one-liners, but the upcoming GoldenEye will test his wits in multiplayer as it will support up to eight players online. Bond will have to stay silent on his upcoming multiplayer mission...

  • News Rare Confirms It is Not Working on Activision's Rumoured GoldenEye Game

    Not what fans want to hear

    Rare was undoubtedly one of the brightest stars back in the Nintendo 64 era and with two top-quality first-person shooters alone tucked under its belt, a selection of compelling 3D platformers and of course, the much-loved Donkey Kong 64; it must have been difficult for Nintendo to let go and eventually sell its stake in the company. It must have been even more difficult..

  • News XBLA Perfect Dark Getting GoldenEye Maps and Weapons

    Another nail in the coffin of Virtual Console GoldenEye?

    Although it's pretty obvious to all but the most blinkered Rare fans that the N64 game GoldenEye has about as much chance of hitting the Wii Virtual Console as Tiger Woods keeping his club to himself, there's always been a part of us that held out hope. However, Microsoft's Ken Lobb (the...

  • News New GoldenEye Title in Development?

    Ex-Eurocom staffer says he's worked on it

    Rare's GoldenEye 007 is often regarded as one of the finest video games of all time, so when EA attempted to cash-in on the name with the lackluster GoldenEye: Rogue Agent a few years back, it hardly came as a massive shock. Now, it would seem that new Bond license-holder Activision is trying the same trick. A former Eurocom staff member has unwittingly..

    UK developer sees little chance of a Virtual Console release

    A while back we got rather excited about the prospect of seeing the N64 classic Goldeneye on the Virtual Console. Such enthusiasm was perfectly understandable - it's still one of the best FPS games you're ever likely to play - but sadly legal wrangles between Nintendo, Microsoft and current Bond license holder Activision seemed to scupper..

  • News Goldeneye Not Coming To Virtual Console After All?

    N64 fans, look away now

    Since the Virtual Console appeared there's been one game that Nintendo fans have called for at the very top of their voices. Rare's Goldeneye is rightly seen as a classic N64 title and, for a while at least, it seemed like the chances of it appearing on the download service were actually quite good. Until now, that is. A leading Xbox fansite has recently posted a story that..
