Certain remakes should be left alone, meaning leave GoldenEye alone. I still got fun memories about playing it on the N64 and I don't want the title to be modernized with perks and shit like that.

If they should do anything at all is to just brush GoldenEye up to HD and release it on PSN and Xbox Live w/e the Wii uses as a store..

Eamon2792d ago

agreed. They should just improve the graphics or at least make it HD.

But the reason why it won't reach PSN and XBL is because Nintendo still wants to keep this.

And their messing the original formula up as well

Rare did attempt to make Goldeneye an Xbox Live Arcade download, long before Perfect Dark HD. But since Activision now owns the Bond license, along with failed negotiations with Nintendo and Microsoft, it was never meant to be.

Seeing that Pefect Dark HD did come out however, I blame no Goldeneye HD on Activision.

Then dont play it?
Its simple really.

"If they should do anything at all is to just brush GoldenEye up to HD and release it on PSN and Xbox Live w/e the Wii uses as a store.."

What makes you think your nostalgia will return if you play a patched up version?
Those funs are in the past, you can't recreate that with a "renovation". GE was special for its age on a console.

The Wii version sh/ts all over the classic GE, in terms of visuals and story telling.
Whether its "as" fun is up for debate. But seriously "remakes" will never bring back the fun you had in the past since games have progressed so deeply.

I looked at the PD renovation and felt like a major disappointment. Just like Turtles in Time, it looked like total crap( even though its visually enhanced).
Because I was holding tight to my nostalgia goggles.
We expect it to be as awesome as back then, but its not and never will be.

a guy who worked on the n64 version should understand, that you can't make this game better. I agree with that, update the graphics, maybe think about the physics (or leave it as it is) and you have a game many gamers would buy again.

ChickeyCantor2792d ago

"that you can't make this game better"

Perhaps not, but they can modernize it( and thats what they are doing).

IaMs122792d ago

Modernizing it, doesnt mean it will be better anyway. ONLY thing i like about modern games is the graphics thats pretty much they all got going for them, except for few titles. Not all are bad but a lot of them are generic.

See when goldeneye came out it was different awesome, everything that came out back then was unique in its on way. Now its CoD this, CoD rip off here, run gun this and that. Its all the same, bring something new bring the spark of the old school back. Give us that feeling we had when we bought games back then where we know each game was its own. Not same shit different skins.

I think i did say "Perhaps not"...
Im not judging it.

"ONLY thing i like about modern games is the graphics thats pretty much they all got going for them"

What about story telling?
This new GE does so much more than the original.

isn't this like the 2nd or 3rd remake or something?

Swiftfox2792d ago

There was the origanal Goldeneye on the N64 then Goldeneye:Rogue Agent. Rogue Agent wasn't a remake of the orginal game and was more like a spin-off and wasn't well recieved at all.

This will be the first remake of the origanal Goldeneye but so many things are being changed it's a completely different game delivering a completely different experience from the origanal.

OhReginald2791d ago

well I know that someone remade the game using the half-life engine.

Swiftfox2792d ago

Unfortuntatly the Activision mindset is "Call of Duty = Sales" the rest will be roped into a false sense of nostalgia.

This game is Goldeneye: Modern Warfare. The gameplay that made the orginal so fun and addicting removed. That's not what people wanted.

People wanted the origanal Goldeneye, not just another cookie cutter shooter with the name "Goldeneye" attached.
