EA back in the early PS2/Xbox/GC-era actually put out some pretty good licensed games, notably 007 Nightfire , 007 Everything or Nothing and some of their Lord of The Rings games.

The world is not enough had a really good game made by eurocom on n64, it was overshadowed by goldeneye and perfect dark unfortunately, I think it has aged better in certain ways, and it had a better framerate. I miss the old days of solid bond games.

There were a bunch of fun Bond games, but Goldeneye and World's Not Enough (running on the ski lines in multiplayer was too much fun back in day)

Nightfire was also really great, as well.

PowerOfTheCloud1820d ago

Yup first game that came to my mind. Was better than the movie imho

Escape from Butcher Bay remains one of the best games I've ever played.

I enjoyed "The Great Escape" game on the PS2. Also "The Thing" on PS2 wasnt to bad. Unfortunately it was to hard at the time when I was younger.

6th gen in general was a really good gen for licensed games, so many surprising gems from that time

As a dev, I can tell you that with 5, Epic made quite a leap. It perhaps may have done *too much* of a fidelity leap that most of its target hardware (Both PC and Consoles) struggles to hit 60FPS with all the new cutting edge features they added.

It may have had some issues with this generation to find a good home, but by PS6 the engine will have matured and found a good matching partner 🙏

Now that Sweet Baby is involved in this game. I’m really concerned it’s going to turn into a woke agenda poster child. I hope not but after what happened to the tv show, I won’t be holding my breath on this one.

Folks are so mf afraid to tell the sweet baby inc weirdos NO we don't want your involvement lol

Hard to say. Maybe they are welcoming them?
I know I wouldn’t hire anyone from the outside to give me advice on how to do my job but we don’t know that they feel scared and they could be positive toward them. People have different beliefs and ideals and that’s ok there is 7 billion people you are going to have ideals that run the gamut.
If it was me I’d tell them to F off because I wouldn’t want to pay people to advise what I’m doing regardless of who it is unless I sought them out myself and that could be the case here who knows.

Give Bethesda some tips on how to work with new, better game engines.

Sorry George Miller, but you’re wrong about the Mad Max game

George Miller expressed dismay toward the 2015 Mad Max game recently, but Avalanche Studios' take on the lore is still so good to this day.

Mad Max is a good game... George Miller should STFU.

He didn't say it wasn't good. Maybe you should take your own advice and look past the articles misleading headline. Here's the actual quote. “wasn’t as good as we wanted it to, it wasn’t in our hands.” That is all he said about it.
