A recent Nintendo Copyright has expired on Goldeneye 007, could this mean that the game could be seeing new life soon?
Goldeneye, it was a great game for its time back then. Make a new James bond video game from scratch, in the third person and showcase a true espionage game with one of the best characters in the fictional world to do it. I would say have Kojima Productions or The same studio behind Splinter Cell games in at Ubisoft work on the game and start something BIG. Just my two cents.
You're right. It was great in its time, but it's pretty dated now. They should just keep it as it is: done with.
I'd like to see the cancelled XBLA version be brought back, it's obviously doesn't hold up compared to other games but i would still enjoy it: https://youtu.be/RRRuhviJGM...
I agree completely, for it's time it was phenomenal but there have been plenty games since that have outshined GoldenEye completely. Time to let the game rest in peace and be remembered as the classic it was.
Goldeneye was good if a little slow, had plenty of still unused ideas even now, why nobody has copied goldeneye's approach to different difficultly levels I will never know, maybe most companies don't think it's worth the extra effort.
Nah its clunky but there are several things it does that sets it apart from other shooters. I would love a remake.
@cpayne I don't really want a remake as it's a bit slow and clunky like you said, but I would like more games to implement different objectives into skill settings, or even better coop with different objectives like perfect dark zero.
They did a remake on last gen consoles.
I mean a game that stays true to the original design more, not the cod skin remake. Really just the same game with updated controls and graphics.
Eh, just play Hitman 2016
I wouldn’t want Kojima doing Bond at all.
The only reason it hasn't aged well is because the controller on the n64 is ridiculous and the fps was in the single digits. With those fixed I think the game would still hold up well, the Timesplitters games do in my opinion. Online multiplayer would be cool too.
Hitman studios could do a great espionage type of a Bond game next. An IP like that would probably save IO Interactive financially, too.
Yeah...no. I would rather not see a Bond game where there is a dinner party and there are twice as many guards as guests.
I love the Hitman series and I think IO interactive is a great team but I also only know them to do one type of game so I'm not entirely sure I could say this would make sense or would work.
How dare the author mention GoldenEye Rouge Agent! And as a sequel no less! Well I suppose this announcement could be seen as more a good happening than a bad, because let's face it, you aren't going to tarnish the original's legacy whatsoever. It's simply classic now.
Didnt Microsoft get this remade for XBOX Live on the 360 before Nintendo stopped it ?
Yes MS did remake the game, but Nintendo backed out of the agreement, leading to the project being canceled.
Nintendo & Microsoft should now finish it & in return it also goes on the Switch with Multiplayer OMFG that would sell the Nintendo MP on the Switch
lol, more likely it gets remade for xbox one. But it would be nice if it came to the Switch.
It was great for its time but now it's a low FPS stuttering blocky mess. The Goldeneye remake of sorts was actually pretty good but I don't want to see this remade literally it's a memory of the past and one of a few handful of titles that made the N64 worth having Just look at turok remastered, excellent back in the day but playing it again was totally drab
I don't know if this game would be fun to play anymore.
It would, especially with 60 frames per second
If done right, a brand new remake/continuation could be amazing. Done wrong, it ruins the collective childhood of a generation.
Bond + a Bethesda studio = win.
Id be happy to see it added to Rare replay. Would be a nice addition
Goldeneye was revolutionary for it's time, but it's dated now. It wasn't the best shooter on N64 either. That trophy goes to Perfect Dark 64. There was a sequel on Xbox but the sequel sucked. If there's a N64 classic we would have a reason to revisit these but I think it's a stretch to ask for a rerelease of some kind. I don't think there's enough demand.
It would be great if it would make its way to the N64 Classic Edition next year.
I tried playing this game a month ago in a retro gaming night club. F*** me the controls are bad compared to modern shooters. I grew up loving this game, but single analogue shooters are terrible, After experiencing dual stick shooters. If they remade this I don't see it keeping its charm. It'll feel like a completely different game. Worth the risk? Not sure.
it wouldn't be hard at all to add dual analogue stick controls silly
I already enjoyed playing through Goldeneye Reloaded on PS3
Slappers Only. Aztec. Oddjob.
This deserves a proper remake.
Loved that part with the guy on the toilet. Snipe!
I still feel like no game has ever done or used music as dope as Goldeneye 64.
So dope. The new doom is pretty up there
ooooo i'd love that glorified port that got cancelled, get finished and come to Xbox now.
Leave the game to rest, it was good in 1997, but not anymore.
Dude, literally just played through that game again and beat it. That's like saying Tetris isn't good anymore or half life 2. You're tripping my boyy, just sayin
Right, but we don't need remakes, or sequels. They already remade goldeneye and it flopped.
Man I would love to play a golden eye HD remake
From Russia with love was a dope 007 game
How is everyone dissing on this game man!? I'm reading these content and just getting more and more upset. I could literllay play this game anytime, along with many others! I'm blow away with what is being said. I've given up in humanity.
