Do Want: Amazon France Lists GoldenEye Reloaded For PlayStation 3

We love James Bond video games

We've spent countless hours with both Quantum Of Solace and Blood Stone on PS3, despite poor review scores and a general sense of ambivalence towards the games.

The rumours first emerged late last month when a bunch of domain..

It's A Slow News Day: Where Does ModernWarfare3.com Direct You To?

Activision's not been keeping on top of its website domains

The URL for ModernWarfare3.com takes you to Battlefield 3's homepage. Given that both titles are currently engaged in a deadly war to the grave, that's pretty funny. The website was registered by an anonymous owner in the US. We suspect it's the work of a long-time Battlefield fan, rather than a sinister EA marketing plan. Hilariously,..

We're Excited: Activision To Debut New James Bond Game At Comic-Con

We never hate James Bond games

While there are good examples of Bond games, and bad examples of Bond games, we usually end up enjoying them regardless of their quality. Perhaps it's because we love the franchise in general, but we've had love affairs with both Quantum Of Solace and Blood Stone already this generation — both of which were panned by critics. So, are we ready for more James Bond?..
