After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...


Original Goldeneye Developer NOT In Love With Activision

Posted on Monday, September 6 @ 14:28:50 PST by
Martin Hollis feels Activision has become the "new" EA. What do you think?

Hollis was a designer of the original Goldeneye. The UK's Official Nintendo Magazine spoke with him about his thoughts on Activision's update of the classic N64 game. In his own words:

"I imagine it is a business decision isn't it? This name is valuable, let's use it. I find it hard to picture Activision's top management being excited about the original and wanting to do it justice. In fact, I find it hard to imagine them being excited about any game. It's my perception that they are trying to be EA, only more so. I think they are doing a fine job at that."

Who could disagree? When I heard about Activision's remake of Goldeneye, with the current Bond in lieu of Brosnan, I immediately thought of GoldenEye: Rogue Agent. And who published that piece of junk? The "old Activision," EA.

I've gone back and played Goldeneye. It's not as good as you remember it. Still, Activision (and EA before it) are looking to make a buck off of the work Hollis and others put into a great game (for the time).

Hollis is still a class act though, saying that update developers Eurocom "are a good company," including that he's "confident they have done their very best."
