Goldeneye 007
One of the most popular and groundbreaking games of the 32/64-bit era was GoldenEye 007. The game is widely held to be one of the best licensed games ever produced, but the reason it’s so popular is its splitscreen multiplayer feature.

Video Game Ad of the Day: 007: Tomorrow Never Dies

007 Tomorrow Never Dies
007: Tomorrow Never Dies is the video game adaptation of the second Pierce Brosnan-led James Bond outing. It was originally offered to Nintendo and Rare after the breakout success of GoldenEye on the Nintendo 64, but the offer was turned down in favour of doing an original sequel, Perfect Dark. EA snapped up the license and handed it over to Black Ops Entertainment for a quickfire third person shooter. While Tomorrow Never Dies wasn’t exactly a great game, it was successful enough for EA to hold the Bond license until the mid 2000s.

Video Game Ad of the Day: James Bond 007: The Duel


James Bond 007: The Duel was a run and gun platformer featuring Ian Fleming’s super spy that owes a lot to Namco’s Rolling Thunder, though it’s not nearly as good. I’m pretty sure the ad for the game marks Timothy Dalton’s last official appearance as Bond.

ZX Spectrum emulator found inside GoldenEye 007 for Nintendo 64


Just when you thought you knew every little secret hidden inside GoldenEye 007.

ROM Hackers recently discovered that the game houses a ZX Spectrum emulator and several of Rare’s classics for the system – Atic Atac, Sabre Wulf, Jetpac and Knight Lore.

One can assume that the emulator was a test for what would become the Jetpac segment of Donkey Kong 64, and that it simply wasn’t scrubbed from the code before the game was finished. Still, it’s a pretty cool homage to the company’s origins.
