EGM rumors: Bizarre making James Bond game, Nintendo stifling Mii customization

EGM rumors: Bizarre making James Bond game, Nintendo stifling Mii customization photo



Before there was Surfer Girl there was Electronic Gaming Monthly's Quartermann, bringer of unverifiable rumors and high hopes. This month's EGM brings a new batch of juicy tid-bits, including some juicy Nintendo dirt that might make even the most dedicated fans toss their Wii remotes through their televisions.

Quartermann drops some news about Activision's recent acquisition, Bizarre Creations. The makers of Project Gotham Racing are said to be working on a James Bond title, which may come as a surprise to some. The game is said to contain plenty of driving, though, and I think a dash of Geometry Wars would yield a game even more compelling than GoldenEye 64.

Mr. Mann also drops a frustrating rumor about Nintendo, alleging that Nintendo cancelled a first-party game because the devs wanted to grant the player more customization options. Say what now? Does Nintendo know something that we don't about things that are uh, good? Because more Mii customization sure would be "good." Right? Right.

Other rumors include: a new Front Mission game that's exclusive to the Xbox 360; a Guitar Hero-inspired action game was in the works at the now defunct EA Chicago; and Final Fantasy: Crystal Bearers for the Wii "appears to be in trouble." These rumors and more can be found in the January 2008 issue of EGM.
