2013 Bond Game

I looked on Wikipedia today in bond gaming and it says on 2013 'Skyfall' However when I clicked it it went to the films wiki page. What do you think? http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Bond_(games)#section_1

  • You need to copy and paste whole link sorry. It didn't think the whole thing was a link.
  • I couldn't find any information about an upcoming 'Skyfall' game, so it's probably either a mistake or the 007 Legends DLC.

    However, wouldn't it be cool to get a proper Skyfall game a year, or few years after the film's release, like with GoldenEye 64. I mean, the movie made enough money to warrant it.

    There won't be a Bond game this year. Activision gave up the license a year early, after the debacle of 007 Legends, and nobody has picked it up. As it takes at least 2 years to put together a decent game, we may well have to wait for a tie in with Bond 24 for the next one.

    007 Legends was a disaster for many reasons. I wouldnt be suprised if there never will be a Bond game made again.

    Hahahaha, that's a good one. If you believe that you are off your rocker.

    Of course there will be another Bond game. The whole point of passing on the licence guarantees that we will get different takes on the Bond games, just like each new film director. If one style doesn't work (Activision's being sloppy laziness) then go for another. Hopefully the licence next goes to a publisher/developer who care about Bond and will make great games for us all to enjoy.

    Ha ha, that comment made me laugh also. The only way there'll be no future Bond games will be either because Bond no longer makes money or because more likely the earth is destroyed by the sun going supernova.

    Id love to see Capcom or Rockstar Games get the Bond gaming licence from Activision. Activision needs to stop slapping everything on to the COD engine.

    Thank you for answering me, appreciate it.

    It's a good game.

    From Russia With Love was the last really GOOD James Bond game. Everything Activision has done is terrible. No sh*t no one buys your Bond games, they put no effort in them whatsoever, they are horribly done call of duty spin offs that feature James Bond characters, ridiculous.

    Erhm... Negative. QoS and Bloodstone were great games. all the others sucks.

    It's funny when FRWL came out it was considered "ok". But looking back it is really a great game and who cares if they butcher the plot, it's a hell of a lot of fun to play and hear Connery recite new lines even at his age.

    QOS was just an average shooter with GREAT online multiplayer (wish they had splitscreen)

    Bloodstone was very average but looking back, it was the best effort we got. It was obviously rushed though (Bond wearing a tux one moment then a suit the next). The graphics for the levels were great but the character models were VERY poor

    GE/GE: Reloaded was fun for what it was. It's amazing how just because it had the Goldeneye name, reviewers ate it up. But it was a decent effort that had good multiplayer but too bad nobody played...

    Legends was basically Reloaded with a new skin and it's incredible how reviewers HATED it because it didn't have the Goldeneye name. It's a bad game but it was treated poorly by reviewers in my opinion.

    So let's hope we hear more about a new Bond game/rights holder very soon

    The bottom line: Someone needs to reinvent what a Bond game is. Running and shooting doesn't cut it. EON should put a call out for pitches, stating quite categorically - No FPS, no 3rd person shooter, bring us your vision of the next generation of Bond game. If an up and coming studio needs a break, this would be it. The big guns will use the licence to keep chugging along, to them it's the equivalent of filler TV. Formulaic guff that needs no real attention. Bond can be one of the most lost lucrative licenses going, it's been proven before.

    I'm just glad Activision aren't making them anymore.

    QOS was pretty poor and bland, Bloodstone was fun but had a terrible story, Goldeneye on Wii was a crap Call Of Duty clone that replaced Brosnan, butchered the film and unlike the n64 game didn't have the gameplay to justify that. Goldeneye Reloaded I didn't play but it just looked like the same game but in HD and 007 Legends looked even worse than the Goldeneye remake because it was butchering 6 films, not one.

    I'm glad EON finally saw sense and realised that they could actually be making lots of money with the videogame licence as long as they give it to a developer who gives a shit.

    It's kind of sad when you think about how we went from critical acclaim and Willam Dafoe in a Bond game to bad sales, terrible reviews and not even the current Bond actor giving his voice.

    Right you are @thelivingroyale

    Back in the "golden age" of Bond games, we didn't realize how good we had it. Agent Under Fire, Nightfire, and Everything or Nothing were games that even non Bond fans had because they were GREAT games. Then the quality started going with Rouge Agent and then FRWL didn't sell that well. It's a shame because EA got a lot of flack back then but wow they made some great Bond games and put some real care in them
  • Agree 100%

    Everything Or Nothing was a great game with high production values and tons of talent. Nightfire is my favourite Bond game and had so much variety, exploration, etc. I prefer both of these to Goldeneye on the n64 because they've aged better.

    I hated From Russia With Love at the time because it butchered the film but looking back it at now, bits of it (like the Jetpack bit in London at the start) were fun, and they managed to get Sean Connery! When you think about how much his salary would've been and how he has a grudge with EON and doesn't really like being associated with Bond much at all, that shows real effort.

    I don't understand why many people says that FRWL game was bad. The game was BASED on the movie, it wasn't THE movie.

    Activision tried to remake Goldeneye with GE2010 and it didn't worked, because it was a try to redo the original film, and it sucked. Also they tried the same with Legends, and that didn't worked too.
    And that makes QoS great, because it was Based on the films.

    Here's what the next Bond game has to do:

    We'll start at the beginning, Casino Royale. Not the film, the novel. It'll start off with Bond in the casino, playing some baccarat and other card games. The player will take control after the opening cutscene showing Bond watching Le Chiffre, they'll go around and play some card games, then after they accumulate some money, they can pay random people off to watch Le Chiffre. Edit: At the same time, Le Chiffre may or may not be paying off people to watch Bond, so there will need to be some sort of trust system in place. The player may not actually accumulate any information from Le Chiffre, depending on who's paid off.

    The player will have the full run of the casino, can visit different floors, go to the hotel rooms, do everything in it that one can do in a real 50s casino. The plot of the game will closely follow the plot of the book, with a little leg room for gameplay. No arbitrary "gunfights for the sake of gunfights" like in Quantum of Solace or From Russia With Love. When Bond isn't playing games in the casino, he can sneak around, finding evidence linking Le Chiffre to his crimes and such.

    There will be moments when he can listen in on Le Chiffre having conversations in his hotel room, and the like - real spy work, not the usual "sneak up, listen in, start shooting" like in most games. You can bug his phone, bug his walls, use Mathis to run errands, like finding ammunition (every now and then, a trigger has to be pulled) or retrieving information. You'll be able to do most of these things at any time (per story requirements), and the story will progress in the game as it does in the novel, not much more (maybe a little padding for the empty parts of the novel, but that's about it) and certainly no less.

    They need to do this for every book in the series (up to Fleming, continuation authors would come if the idea becomes successful), plus or minus the short story collections (they'd be PSN/XBLA/WiiWare games, maybe), so that we get true adaptations of the novels. Base the characters' looks on their descriptions in the novels, not on the voice actors playing them, and then get voices who embody the characters.

    Well, that's my idea. How's it sound?
  • @Agent007391 I like it. Start fresh and do more faithful adaptions of the books. I'd rather have this, a detective type game, instead of another shooter. They've overdone that a bit now.

    Plus, this idea will give the new developer twelve solid disc releases, and nine PSN/XBLA/WiiWare games.

    Those kind of games would stick good with Ubisoft or Naughty Dog, @Agent007391. And nice script.

    I was thinking a little more along the lines with Rocksteady, but both of those publishers (especially Naughty Dog) work just fine, too.

    ^Once again gents, Naughty Dog is not a publisher and neither is Rocksteady. It is a dream to have one of them make a Bond game but a realistic option like Ubisoft is what I really want. Ubisoft Montreal would make a killer Bond game

    I wasn't talking publishers, I was talking developers. Yes, of all those, Ubisoft would make a realistic choice, but if we're being realistic here, my idea doesn't even have a chance of getting off the ground. 1) I work for no video game companies; 2) though I am a published author, it's solely selfpublishing, nobody would hire me to even go near it; and 3) only Bond fans would by a game even remotely similar to what I'd like to see, and that would be bad for business according to whatever company ends up with the license (to game), hence why we've had so many shooters (they sell, hence they're made).

    At the moment, we can't even begin talking realistically, because nobody has the license yet.

    I saw some gameplay footage of Watch_Dogs a couple of days ago, and said 'Alright, now I know who I want to get the Bond licence!' So yes, bring on Ubisoft!

    I agree. And Ubisoft really give an effort and polish their titles from what I have seen. That would be a nice change from Craptivision.
