I think I've said this before, but I really can't say it enough. My interest in gaming (and my hopes of, one day, writing about games) was sparked and fueled by The Wiire; mainly because of James and yourself. Although the Wii is currently my least played console, I still hold an irreplaceable love for Nintendo and The Wiire days of old. The podcast was never the same once you and James left. Ironically, you two were absent in the first episode I listened to, episode 55. I'll stop myself from rambling here, and just say thank you.
This isn't meant to be an insult, but I was wondering if the podcast's audio quality has gotten worse or if it's just me. Regardless, that won't stop me from listening!
I mean, to remake the game, wouldn't they still have to go through all of that? If they create an updated version, I doubt releasing the original version would take as much work.
I'd actually prefer a straight up port or VC edition of the original GoldenEye 007. I don't really want to play a remake; I want to have some nostalgia-fueled multiplayer mayhem with the original game.
My initial thoughts were similar to Jumpman's when I heard the name and saw the colorful cloth and yarn based levels. Then, when the trailer continued, I'm pretty sure my jaw hit the floor. Leave it to Nintendo to bring creativity into an drab, FPS driven industry. The way they used the yarn and cloth mechanics to reveal new sections of a level, move into the background of a level, and navigate across certain sections was, dare I say, mind-blowing. Bravo, Nintendo. Bravo.
*Pushes button* SUCCESS! Alright, Mr. Michael Suszek, begin writing a 3,000 word feature on why the Xbox 360 is better than the Wii, and why Nintendo should have Project Natal support.
Now my dream website will become a reality!
Elnicorico, are you the new me? I feel like I've talked about everything in your post over and over and over again, and I don't mean that in a negative way :). If I remember correctly, I started to really get into gaming in 2005, and I was so hyped for the Wii. It was my first console of this generation, and it was previously my console of choice. I was a total Nintendo fanboy. As I started thinking about games more and weighing my other options, I strayed from the Nintendo path and picked up a 360 and eventually a PS3. Now, I'm a total Wii hater. Well, I wouldn't say hater, but I do harp on it a lot. That's why I don't visit The Wiire as much as I used to. I definitely love the staff, and I still listen to the podcast every week, but the news/console just doesn't appeal to me anymore. I'm glad I'm not the only one who was brought to the "dark side" by the other consoles. :P
Thank God Wii Play wasn't up there. I probably would have cried if it was. It's good to see Modern Warfare 2 at the top though, otherwise it's just like a Nintendo dictatorship. You'd think at this point Nintendo would start to get sick of money.
What if they just added in a hedgehog suit instead?
If this is true... *Facepalm*
Eh, it might not be that bad, but I want my Mario games to stay Mario games.
