Activision has released brand new screenshots of the GoldenEye 007 remake.
http://www.nintendoeverythi... http://www.nintendoeverythi... Looks like a freaking gamecube game.
And? You're point is? The first looked like an N64 game. Guess what? Was one helluva game.
So we should just accept bad graphics with a smile, then, so long as it's fun? Hey developers! You can spend a weekend on the graphical assets of your games, now! We don't care at all because you have a fun game! Here's my $50, thanks! @Below No S***. That doesn't mean we should accept bad graphics laying down.
Fun > Graphics A game no matter how eye catching is useless unless it's fun
You are missing the point. If you want identical goldeneye gameplay...play N64 goldeneye. The whole point of this remake is THE VISUALS. There are not aiming to change the gameplay, so you're saying you want to pay for a game with the same gameplay...and almost no updated visuals....what are you paying for again? I know you think nintendo gets a free pass because everything they touch turns to gold... But it is a remake, it is supposed to be updated, the wii is twice as powerful as a gamecube...it only outputs 480i they should be able to milk the wii ( wow that sounded really gross ) for all it's worth visually. This is clearly just a cash in. A remake is wasted on the wii anyway...they should have saved it for the next console
If graphics didn't matter then why have consoles advance over the years? Why did we buy a PS2 or PS3. Why not just stick to our fun old atari consoles? Stop lying to youself and admit that graphics are a big part of the game. Grahpics do matter, almost as much as gameplay.
As a PS3 owner who loves games like Killzone 2, Uncharted 2 and GOW 3, I would gladly play the original Goldeneye for hours on end if you put it in front of me. So yeah, people are excited for an updated version of that game. Being able to play Goldeneye with a group friends again sounds like a lot of fun. Don't you remember playi-oh wait, with that kind of an attitude, you probably never had many friends, which means you have no idea what the rest of us are talking about. On topic: Between this and Zelda, I may have to get a Wii.
for "this gen" but you're lying to yourself if you think the Gamecube output visuals like this: http://www.nintendoeverythi... It's still SD and it's kinda ugly after seeing Crysis on my i7 and Killzone 2, but, it's a step forward from the original (which by now isn't that hard, hell, PD 1 was a step forward). This could NOT be done on the Gamecube as it is, but it could have been done in a fairly similar manner. The Wii's not "twice as powerful" either, per se, it's twice as fast or so (processor wise) and that's not the same Dchalfont, and you should know that much being the techie I know you are. It's roughly 1.5 times as powerful or so, but twice is too far. I am thinking they may have been able to get more out of the Wii, but c'mon, not much. They did what they could with Gamecube 1.5...But still, Nintendo themselves and HVS are the only ones who have milked the Wii upwards of it's ceiling. Oh, and it does 480p, as well...hence the component outputs.
Holy cow this game is not for the casual Core it's for the old schoolers it plays just like the old one with the same style graphics to prove a point. It's more of the same yet it's new content. We've always wanted just that but instead got perfect dark which was killed by the xbox lol. Lots of people don't play games for graphics. Key word play. And all games are not about advancing graphics. I think that side of gaming has done enough damage. Now it's time to get our game on. So far nintendo is the only company that understands this. Go and play your exclusive man this game is for real gamers not people with agendas. That crap is ruining gaming.
I may be 'missing the point' on this particular game. But, people here complain about 'bad graphics' all day, everyday. According to some, if the graphics don't look like Uncharted.. Then people compare and basically say they are no better than Pac-Man. Which is just ridiculous.. And, the game does look better. Though, this is the Wii, after all.
@Dchaf, Since its using the IR hardware, it wont even play the same. And you meant and it outputs 480p
Looks like a GC game? OK, lets take a look. Here are some GC graphics. http://cubemedia.ign.com/cu... http://cubemedia.ign.com/cu... Compared to what you pointed out, like this: http://www.nintendoeverythi... Better detail, overall (especially the gun and the wall). Does it look like a 360 or PS3 game? Of course not. But it doesn't look bad.
Eviltwin, don't cherry pick ugly gamecube games for your argument. Here are some things GC was capable of: http://cubemedia.ign.com/me... http://cubemedia.ign.com/me... http://www.nintendospin.com... http://www.meristation.com/...
Then why are people not demanding this game to be on PC? Don't go dogging the graphics on the wii, because one could make the exact same argument about any of the consoles. Their graphics will always be inferior to those on the PC. Take the game for what it is, a game.
@SilentNegotiator -- It's not cherry picking, it's picking FROM THE SAME GENRE OF GAME. We're talking about an FPS here. Hence picking an FPS game on the GC. I thought that was pretty obvious. (And you managed to pick the most horrible picture of Twilight Princess possible and a very blurry RE4 pic while you were at it.) More GC FPS: http://cubemedia.ign.com/cu... http://cubemedia.ign.com/cu... http://cubemedia.ign.com/cu... http://cubemedia.ign.com/cu... http://cubemedia.ign.com/cu... http://cubemedia.ign.com/cu... What, are you gonna say Retro Studios stinks because they couldn't match Factor 5's work in a completely different type of game? Rogue Squadron II benefits a lot by flying (very quickly) over areas that you're several feet above. That's how more basic areas like this... http://image.gamespotcdn.ne... ...look just fine. Whereas in an FPS, you turn next to a wall very close to you and see a pixelated mess.
Still, no, the GC did not do Wii graphics, the Wii is more powerful. My point was that it's not twice as powerful, but yet it's a big step up. I have a GC, I would know, you think? This game wouldn't look as is on the GC, it's that simple. My point is also that I have seen the best GC could do, it was almost on par with Xbox last gen, and ahead of PS2, but for this game AS AN ARTIST WHO HAS A DEGREE IN THIS STUFF, MIND YOU, I can tell you that the Gamecube could come close in some ways, but there is too much detail in the GoldenEye remake to match what we're seeing, it just couldn't be done. End of story. Period. Your Wii hatred is being set aside, for this.
Haha, this game look like my toliet.
your opinion is worth what's in my toilet.
looks decent but would look countless times better on 360, pc or ps3 lol
Job good graphics aren't everything then.
in a remake it is as clearly stated above. The guy hit the nail on the head.
cuz if graphics were everything then everyone here wud give perfect score for FFXIII. " Bad graphics= bad game" fools plz. Bad game mechs and play = bad game. Gameplay>Graphics 24/7
Ahh have they announced anything on multiplayer thru Wii friend codes? I can't wait for this game.
looks great, will buy it for sure.
I personally think that Remake Microsoft had in the works looks of better quality .Idk i just have to try this one and see
There is no need for a mediocre looking game like this to come out it's a waste of time. Perdicition might do just has good as The Conduit but in the end prove to be a money loss for the devs. One redeeming hope is that it could go XBLA / PSN for maybe a 5 spot.
So, you must play games based solely on the looks, eh? And, a waste? So, if a game looks good, with mediocre gameplay, it's fine? I, for one, will take gameplay over looks, anyday.
Seriously why do we care about sales? I can't shoot sales in the face or bounce grenades arounds corners or enjoy regenerating glass in a fire fight. Nore can I plant proxy mine at head height to make sure people die when they see them lol. This game was so hilarious and fun and I think they captured that feeling. All the graphics in the world would not make up for that. The game play is classic. You have to play it to understand it which why I think many of you just dint understand this is not nostalgia it's game play we miss. And it's fun. It's made so only a true hardcore could like it. Not some graphic whore.
...U adore FFXIII and rate it as the best game this gen with such comments... once again... Gameplay>Graphics
As long as it's fun like the original I'll be looking forward to it.
I agree Nappa! @Holy orange cows "So we should just accept bad graphics with a smile, then, so long as it's fun? " You dont like fun games ?? lol whats a game if its not fun ?? Tetris is extremely fun. I couldnt imagine that looking any better on a HD system. After all they are just blocks falling. I think some new generation gamers forget that a game has to be fun in the first place before it gets bought. Thats why those Apple App games get so popular. Small in size but >>> FUN
Yeah I think sony's camp should call their "games" the pursuit of cgi games or sim games or interactive video. They don't really make games or play them it seems. That problem started a long time ago.
holy upscaling batman! when have wii graphics ever had that amount of clarity?
that's what I was saying. It does look better than what was shown on E3
This might make me buy a wii.
they didn't use Pierce Bronson
It'd be nice if they let you create your own character. Doubt it will happen though.
Let's face it, it's going to be a great game regardless of anything said here. And in response to some of the first posts here, graphics ARE NOT the only upgrade for this remake. Firstly, you have 2 control schemes. You can use the WiiRemote and Nunchuk, or the Classic controller. Secondly, there's online play. And then, since this is a remake, the devs can go through and fix anything that was wrong with the original (which isn't much, but you still get the point.) This is a chance for the formula to be perfected. And why are you people complaining about the graphics? Im not going to sit here and argue that they look good, because it is an opinionated matter. But am I gonna sit here and talk facts, and one of those facts is the fact that you shouldn't expect 1080p HD visuals from the Wii, cause that's some of you people are acting like it should be up to par with PS3 visuals. It's a 480p console, it's not going to look "OMG FREAKIN AMAZIN!!!111!!!!111one!!" The only games that make people say that are Nintendo games (i.e. Mario Galaxy, Metroid), with the excpetion of Red Steel 2, that game was beautiful, but mostly due to the artstyle.
We're all going to be soarly disappointed with this. Golden Eye isn't as fun as it once was. They aren't changing enough to make it stand out. Oh, wait. I forgot the audience.
It's golden eye please name one game that plays like it, so why does it need to stand out? If you've never play golden eye then you don't understand what I'm saying. On the surface it's like any other game but once you play it you say wow this is fun. The design is that good. It's what is missing fro Fps these days.
Donkey Kong Country stood out "at the time". No One Lives Forever stood out "at the time". Golden Eye stood out "at the time". You can't release the same game to an audience 15 years later for full retail price. It's just not right. I'm getting another Wii just for Donkey Kong Country Returns though. I understand the nostalgia. We are slaves to our feelings. Btw... Half-life: Deathmatch, F.E.A.R. Combat, and Medal of Honor: Heroes play a lot like it. In fact, Agent Under Fire and Nightfire were more fun. They didn't revolutionize like GE did, but they stayed current and improved on the past. These are video games...not movies. Mechanics change. A game can improve on its predescesor because of new innovations in gameplay mechanics. However...a Godfather remake will NEVER touch the original. I don't care how good special effects will be in 2050...no one will ever touch Lord of the Rings again either.
People are idiots. IT ISN'T THE SAME GAME! IT is a re imagining. IT will not have the same levels! It is basically a new game based off the movie. Eurocom have said that themselves. You guys are all expecting something else.This will not be a port lie Perfect Dar for XBLA. It is a REMAKE.
the visuals on this game will be awesome ive read countless previews from the teams involved and they have about 115-150 people working on the game and they wont rush it into shops according to activision they will make the game perfect so im buying it the graphics are awesome its goleneye not call of duty black ops there has to be a style of graphics to suit the goldeneye franchise and if u look at gamecube goldeneye and others u will see that this will be the ultimate in graphics for a bond game blood stone is the same as this graphics wise same models ect ive read this so dont expect a 360 version to dominate this graphically it wont
If they can bring the feel of the original back while bringing new and responsive controls for the table this will be the my most played for a long time...love the original and regardless of graphics and platforms it's nice to see they are remaking it.
This game is looking pretty good. I almost wish they would have brought it over to PS3 and 360 though.
