Activision Trotting Out GoldenEye's Corpse Again?
The N64 game GoldenEye 007 divides most gamers into two camps. If you were a PC gamer, the awkward controls and inferior graphics paled in comparison to the comforting mouse/keyboard configuration and cutting edge graphics found in contemporary shooters Doom II, Quake, and Dark Forces. If you were a console player unfamiliar with the wonderful world of PC FPS games, it was likely your addictive first taste of a genre that exploded in popularity in the following years.
Last year's Wii reboot of GoldenEye failed to recapture the magic of the original, but that's not stopping Activision from propping the game up for one more hurrah. According to net sleuth Superannuation, the company recently registered four web domains for a game called GoldenEye Reloaded.
Until Activision announces its plans for the title, we won't know if it's a full-blown HD remake, a downloadable title for PSN or XBLA, or something completely different.
