Activision registers website for possible Goldeneye revival

Remember Goldeneye Rogue Agent – that EA Bond game from 2004? It sure was fun decent a videogame, huh? Well, from the looks of things, Activision’s planning on breathing new life into that completely unremarkable franchise.

That is the Goldeneye they’re referring to, right?

Internet James Bond equivalent (if James Bond was an actual spy and not a suit-clad playboy who occasionally shoots people) Superannuation recently stumbled across an Activision-owned domain for “goldeneyegame.com.” On top of that, Activision also snapped up some online real estate for “bloodstonegame.com,” which may ring a few bells for some of you.

As to whether or not the two games are connected in some way – or whether this Goldeneye is a sequel or a risen from the ashes remake – we’re just as clueless as you. Domain names’ tale-telling prowess, unfortunately, is greater only than that of dead men. Now if only professional skater/bean-spiller Tony Hawk was on this project…

    Because the Perfect Dark XBLA release certainly didn’t shatter any rose-tinted glasses right?

    RIGHT?

    I love how so many video game site love to go back and over look the significance of this game. I remember this game single handedly changed how people hung out in my neighborhood. We would literally have tournaments among all the different kids in the area over this game. Goldeneye pretty much made FPS games.

    I can’t imagine this ever coming to fruition. That would require Nintendo, Activision and Microsoft all getting along and deciding how the cake should be divided… Not going to happen in this lifetime.

    GoldenEye is still a fantastic shooter, the only minor fly in the ointment is the dodgy framerate it had in places, although it was much better than Perfect Dark on the N64 which ran like a slideshow.

    I hope so!

    Goldeneye is LEGENDARY.. It’s revival would be like the equivalent of Elvis Presley being brought back to life.

    Both were legends. :)

    I’ve given up on the Goldeneye remake/re-release idea and have happily replaced my cravings with…

    @3 On the consoles, yeah. There were quite a few quality shooters before then, but I had the same experience. Me and my cousin would be huddled up around the N64 doing crazy shit in splitscreen for aeons.

    What about the original Mission: Impossible for N64 though? Was I the only that loved the hell out of that game?

    IMO, this is pointless. No matter how they do it, it will never be our Goldeneye. Goldeneye is what it is to us because we were young and it was something remarkable for the time. Nostalgia can never be reproduced and so its better left as a great memory than replicated only to fall short of all that we remember.
