This group recreated the Skyfall intro in GTA V

In the movie Skyfall, James Bond has a rather intense encounter on the top of a train in one of the very first scenes. It's a memorable moment in the film, and some people sought to re-create it in Grand Theft Auto V. Pretty...

Review: 007 Legends photo
Review: 007 Legends
by Matthew Razak

After it turned out that the new GoldenEye game didn't suck and Activision simultaneously published a new third-person Bond adventure in the form of Blood Stone (seriously flawed, but showed promise) I actually had the audacity to hope that the publisher was doing something interesting with the license. When 007 Legends was announced I foolishly perked up. Eurocom, the guys behind GoldenEye, were developing this new Bond FPS and going back and revisiting old Bond films is one of my favorite pastimes. 

What is not one of my favorite pastimes is playing through a rushed game whose quality is an insult to one of the greatest franchises in the history of media. You hear that Activision? This is James Bond, not some license you picked up off a one shot movie deal. You're dealing with an icon and this is how you treat him? The post GoldenEye 007 games may not have been revolutionary, but at least they tried. Bond deserves better and so do the people who buy this game expecting to receive even an iota of quality because the number 007 is on it.

I suppose that pretty much gives you the gist of it already, but if you want to see a massive Bond fan release all his anger at 007 Legends in a single review please read on.

OHMSS gets its 007 Legends trailer on

I'm pretty sure they could play the Bond theme over a video of a peanut butter and banana sandwich and I'd get excited so playing it over a new trailer for 007 Legends is basically giving me conniptions. This trailer, w...

Wouldn't real-life GoldenEye just be the original movie?

Usually, weekends at Dtoid are extremely slow, but we were so chock-full of stories over the past couple of days that I held off on posting this video. I only just now remembered it was in my inbox. I don't see how I could f...

Review: GoldenEye 007: Reloaded photo
Review: GoldenEye 007: Reloaded
by Matthew Razak

Last year, James Bond returned to videogames in both GoldenEye 007 for the Wii and Blood Stone for the PS3 and 360. In a change from the standard outcome when a franchise hits multiple platforms, the Wii game was the one that was more polished and more fun to play. Even more surprising is the fact that GoldenEye 007 was a perfectly satisfactory follow-up to its namesake and by far one of the best FPS experiences on the Wii.

Of course, even before GoldenEye 007 came out, people were crying foul that it was a Wii exclusive, mostly because people like to cry fowl whenever they get the chance. All those fowl criers can stop now that the game has come to both the PS3 and the 360 in glorious hi-def with a new engine, extra content, and a more robust online component.

Is it worth picking up if you've played the Wii version? Or if you didn't, is it worth picking up in a holiday market crowded with other shooters?

Hands-on with GoldenEye 007: Reloaded's multiplayer

Like most, I am a huge fan of GoldenEye 64. It was my gateway drug into the wonderful world of first-person shooters. Hundreds of hours were wasted in "slappers only" multiplayer matches, causing the frame rate to come to a ...
