Golden Eye 007 for the Wii & DS has been leaked. Also shows gun holder for the wii remote and nun chuck. Read full story here.
The lack of HD versions is saddening...
Isnt goldeneye (the movie) like 13 years old? I remember watching the movie in theaters with some friends. The movie was pretty average and compared to a Bond movie, it sucked. Pierce Brosnan was a good 007 on paper. On the big screen, he was more cool than secret agent lmao. And wtf is this about a goldeneye wii. Lmao what the fk. A 13 year old movie? I assume they are talking about a remake. lol in this place and day, there is no place for goldeneye. If they are going to do a FPS bond, they might aswell make a new game instead of clinging on to the N64 prehistoric glory
@El Botto Honestly, Goldeneye as a movie was extremely mediocre. It's surprising that the game was better than the movie, and I really can't see how anyone can argue against that fact. ---- So far as a remake is concerned, I don't like it. Activision making it instead of Rare is almost destined to be an epic fail. Anyone remember Rogue Agent? Sure that was EA, but at the time they were almost as notorious as Activision is now.
Goldeneye the movie recieved high praise, it's also one of my favourite bond movies for me the two only propper bonds are Roger Moore and Peirce Brosnan. Secondly why they would be remaking Golden Eye THE GAME (ring any bells?) is becuase of it's immense popularity and it's praise among many to be the best FPS. Just saying. Edit- Most people were sucking their thumb when this came out so it could give them a chance to experience a peice of gaming history.
I agree. Now it's just going to look exactly the same... I think I will just stick with my N64 version.
You apparently haven't played the n64 version in years. They have square heads and arms.
yeah not really because if this is true (which seems very believable since its activision and all) the game will most likely end up being a crap game anyways
It's made by Activision. If anything, they'll just destroy your childhood by changing everything that was good about that game and release a 15$ gloden Klobb DLC. I also bet it'll be about Lt. James Bond (Daniel Craig, not Brosnan), a faceless American marine who must rescue the president from communist muslim terrorists who attacked the White House. Thanks a lot Activision and please die in a fire
...But if it is, I guess they found a way around the legal crap that prevented the original from being remade!
I'm pretty content with this http://www.moddb.com/mods/g... as far as multiplayer goes and it is HD... If I was in charge of the bond franchise though, I'd be super pissed the gaming industry isn't pimping my new shit. It's not like they are even capable of outdoing the original goldeneye game. Preempted fail.
Goldeneye was freaking awesome, but shooters on the wii never work the way you want them too. I'd rather play it with regular shooter controls than with the wiimote. Hopefully classic controller is supported
I think this is a joke. True Activision owns the Bond license for any potential Bond game except Goldeneye which was done by Rare. Rare is owned by microsoft. I heard a rumor about a year ago that one or two of the original guys that worked on the game, and that are still with Rare had upped the graphics significantly to run on xbox 360 and they had a finished version to sell on live, but they had to make a deal with nintendo because it was on the n64 system back in the day to share the profits but the heads at Nintendo balked at the idea of sharing. They should think about the fans craving this awesome old school shooter. Look a lot of people claim Halo to be the 1st person shooter king, but they forget if there was no Goldeneye there would be no Halo
Yeah, but the story and characters aren't owned by Rare. Activision can effectively build a new Goldeneye game ignoring Rare's and, basically, sell it on name. The story, the characters, even things like mission objectives can be carried over and there's not really a lot anyone could do to stop it, if they do build it from scratch. Might be good, might suck. We just don't know.
the survey says with Daniel Craig. I don't own a Wii, or 360, but it would be beyond awesome if they could work something out.
It depends on the judge you get. Simply remaking something doesn't mean you aren't breaking a copyright. I can't remember 100% of the details, but I think M$/Rare own the goldeneye game, but Nintendo owns the distribution rights to the game or something like that.
If it IS made then I hope they do replace Pierce Brosnon with Daniel Craig, he's a way more cold-hearted bastard and an all around better bond.
i havent even seen a good 007 game this gen. whats up with that?!
That the new Bond movies aren't all that great, they aren't even bond movies now, where are all the silly gadgets, cheesy one liners over the top villains? It's become just another bunch generic action movies, good but not really in the Bond spirit anymore.
What are you talking about Casino Royale was really good. Why can't they just leave Golden Eye alone, they can't recreate the success of the game with a remake it just won't happen, Rare made the game and now it's owned my Microsoft.
Yes Casino Royale was good but it wasn't Bond, sure he has the cool car and he gets the girl it was way! too serious, the villain wasn't over the top, hardly any cheesy gadgets (I can't remember any) and he can't deliver the suave that Bond is known for, so despite it being a good action movie it wasn't a good Bond movie.
already posted..? http://n4g.com/news/536191/...
yup as in a dupe.
want to update a classic, but who her HASN'T played this game to death by now, and those too young to have played it wont appreciate it
Why is the wii-mote holder a Klobb! Thats the worst gun in the game. Totally not getting it now!
The KLOBB is the only option for a gun based on Goldeneye. It's the most iconic anyway.
"it's the most iconic anyway" Pencil gun would want to have a word with you
Yeah good luck fitting a Wiimote on that thing lol.
Did you say something against the Klobb?
i thought nintendo had something against realistic looking weapons as controllers.
ha! A golden klobb! Genius! I mean, if that doesn't smack you in the face that this is fake, I dont know what will. (maybe that theyre revamping the story with Daniel Craig, yeah, they're really gonna let a video game rewrite a classic bond flik)
Pierce Brosnon or no buy.
lets be realistic, most ppl here werent even born or were in diapers when Golden Eye was released. This game is for them
didn't have a n64, but i remember the buzz about golden eye. i guess its ok, since its not on the VC, and they will up the graphics, but its Activision....
If this is true, i am going to buy a wii just for this game, if it is good. GoldenEye was my fav game for the N64. Oh, and f*ck Daniel Craig, bring Brosnan back!
fake or real. i'll just wait to hear something from E3.
Does anyone else remember that GoldenEye game, I think it was for the Gamecube/PS2, where they hilariously justified calling it that by giving the character a golden eyeball power-up?
I was just thinking about that also. This sounds like another cash in on goldeneyes title. I would rather have an upgraded goldeneye rather then a remade one by completely differnt companies.
i have a real vz61 full auto but its not gold. i have to ask why they picked this gun and not the gun from the movie man with the golden gun? a scorpion does not fit any where in bond and would have been much better as a ppk or a custom golden gun movie prop.
Guess someone had to cash in on rereleasing goldeneye eventually. I'm just happy it's for the wii... where perfect darks upgrade should be too. Hope they budget price it tho. I'm not paying 50 bucks for an upgraded version of a game i beat back in 1998.
"The title will supposedly 'modernize' the classic story, placing Daniel Craig in the role of Bond." A.K.A. - It's going to suck because Activision has no respect for the film.
after activision made beenox do Quantum of Solace for Wii, I would be scared. I'll just play the original. They need to get a good studio like Infinity Ward to do...oh wait.
I highly doubt this one.
I don't know if I trust Activision with this one. http://www.metacritic.com/g...
This is big news! BUT I want it on XBL damnit!
I've died and gone to heaven....:) I've been waiting for this for so long, Golden Eye was my first addictive, won't let go of the control fps...the king of FPS. hopefully they go all out in both campaign and MP.
If this is true, please, PLEASE don't do another Goldeneye: Rogue Agent, I want all the original characters, I want Pierce Brosnan as Bond, I want.....this on the 360 goddamit the Wii online multiplayer system sucks. I hate Friend Codes, on 360, send a friend request, boom, on PS3, friend request, boom, on Wii, type in a bunch of numbers and letters to do really nothing. I want it on PS3 and 360 too. Dammit, on wii it won't be HD, and I'lll need to actually move to play the game, I want to use a regular controller, just like the old days, dammit, I want to use the N64 trident on my 360, I WANT IT DAMN YOU DAMN YOU TO HELL!!!! Eh, I shouldn't get all worked up it's probably fake. But I will admit, that golden gun periph is awesome, fake or not. Also, where is this survey?
Really depends. If they do to GE what Capcom did with the REmake for Cube then this can be incredible. Adding the WiiMote controls alone in an effective way is enough to make this a buy for me. Update the graphics add more content, local MP as well as online MP and I can see this being a huge hit for them. Reason being many Wii gamers are not just people who haven't ever played a game, but many of them are gamers who became disinterested in gaming. I can see this taking off if its of quality.
But... I can't seem to want to play anything else but MH tri you know there will have to be a harder difficulty than 007 mode as the wiimote will give us an unfair advantage over the old school aiming that was on the N64. I just loved the idea of the special OPS soldiers with sunglasses that show up if the alarm was triggered or you messed up somewhere. They came with a punishing might that mostly resulted in a RIP 007 agent lol. Rolls, knell double gun shots, armor platting in the head ( looked like it), grenade tossing, wicked accuracy, massive damage from their weapons. The guys in the sunglasses were guys you feared. Ah the good old days.
I know! I used to shoot the alarm on purpose just to get bombarded with agents to kill lol. There are ways to make things more difficult, like again, how Capcom did with RE4, make ammo more scarce etc. I've yet to buy Tri, but I'm definintely going to pick it up in the future. Loved the demo.
