007 Legends Developer Eurocom Closes for Good

You only live twice

Blighted British developer Eurocom has been forced to close its doors just weeks after announcing huge redundancies. The Derby-based studio employed over 200 people prior to releasing 007 Legends earlier this year. It slashed that headcount to just 50 in November, before letting the remaining staff go earlier today. “Today...

007 Legends Developer Eurocom Sheds a Chunk of Its Staff

The world is not enough

Legendary UK developer Eurocom has cut its workforce to just under 50 employees today. The studio – which previously employed over 200 people – has been forced to restructure after a decline in demand for console games. "Eurocom are undertaking a restructuring which I regret to say has meant we've made the majority of...

For England James: GoldenEye 007 Reloaded Gets Launch Trailer

Yes, a new Bond game

It's curious that Activision's decided to release GoldenEye 007: Reloaded so close to Modern Warfare 3, but we're not going to complain. We're always pumped for more 007, and subsequently can't wait to get our hands on this revamped version of last year's Nintendo Wii reboot. It's GoldenEye. What's not to be pumped about? The game's out next week.

Developer: GoldenEye Was The 'Godfather' Of Shooters

GoldenEye 007 Reloaded is out on PS3 next week

And as regular readers will know, we couldn't be more excited. Part of our excitement stems from nostalgia; GoldenEye is one of our favourite games of all time. With the original game being so fondly remembered, we can only imagine there must be a curious atmosphere at developer Eurocom. A kind of pressure, if you will. "We talk about the original..

GoldenEye 007: Reloaded Highlights Action

In the last GoldenEye 007: Reloaded gameplay trailer, developer Eurocom opted to showcase the game's stealth features

But just because you can play the game in stealth, doesn't mean you have to. Bond's been involved in some pretty crazy fire-fights over the years, and that's definitely the focus of this latest walkthrough. The gun-play looks fast and fluid — though the guns do appear to lack..

Good Grief, GoldenEye 007: Reloaded Knows How To Push Our Buttons

We honestly couldn't be more excited for GoldenEye 007: Reloaded

Even a lousy hands-on hasn't managed to put us off. And this multiplayer trailer has turned our hype levels right back up to 'eleven' once again. Four-player split-screen is back, but it's the new 16-player multiplayer that we're hyped for. Guys, GoldenEye. Heck yes.

GoldenEye 007: Reloaded Pre-Order Bonuses Include Paintball Mode

Activision's playing on some real nostalgia with GoldenEye 007: Reloaded isn't it? One of the game's North American pre-order bonuses -- available from GameStop -- brings the original's legendary Paintball mode to split-screen and private online multiplayer matches

Remember Paintball mode? If that wasn't enough, GameStop's also handing out "early access" to the Classic Conflict gametype..

Disney Universe Does Aladdin In Its Latest Trailer

Disney Universe's roster of represented properties keeps on growing

With stages based on Pirates Of The Caribbean, Alice In Wonderland and the Lion King already confirmed, Disney's turned its attention to Aladdin. We agree, it's still hard to shake the overbearing influences of LittleBigPlanet, but as our recent hands-on testified, the game looks pretty neat.

Disney Universe on PlayStation 3

Someone at Disney Universe developer, Eurocom, has spent a lot of time playing LittleBigPlanet

That's not to say this four-player platforming adventure plays exactly like Media Molecule's 'Play Create Share' adventure, but tonally it's extremely similar. Playing as one of four costumed blue-squibs — we were totally Alice from the Wonderland series — Disney Universe is clearly designed with..

GoldenEye 007: Reloaded on PlayStation 3

After naming GoldenEye 007: Reloaded as one of our most anticipated PlayStation 3 games of the year, we couldn't help but feel disappointed by our time with the game's demo

It felt early. Really early. Borderline broken in fact. After restarting our demo — because a bit of geometry was obtruding our entry into a vent — we decided to restart the game from the beginning. The Dam always was our..

What's your favourite stage from GoldenEye 64? The Dam? The Library? The Cradle? Nah, for us it's always been the Facility

So it's fascinating to see just how developer Eurocom has re-imagined the classic level for PS3 title GoldenEye 007: Reloaded. You can catch the stage being played in stealth after the jump. Looks like remarkably good fun. Hit the jump for footage and commentary.

Push Square's Most Anticipated Overlooked PlayStation Games Of Holiday 2011: #2 - GoldenEye 007: Reloaded

One of the few downsides of writing about PlayStation games day-in-day-out is that we rarely get time to experience the content on other platforms

While we keep up to date with the release schedule and details of competitive platforms, we never really get the time to play them any more. When your work includes knowing everything there is to know about a specific platform/brand, you have to commit..

In addition to the main single-player campaign and an updated multiplayer component, Activision's PlayStation 3 port of GoldenEye 007: Reloaded will also include a series of MI6 mission objectives

Seperate from the main campaign, these missions will require you to carry out very specific tasks in order to progress. The visuals don't look quite there yet — perhaps we shouldn't necessarily expect..

GoldenEye 007: Reloaded Was Always Part Of The Plan

We were really surprised to see Activision announce an HD update of GoldenEye for the PlayStation 3 this week, but according to Activision the release was always planned

Producer James Steer revealed to Kotaku that GoldenEye 007: Reloaded was being worked on "in the background" while the Wii version was in development. “This was working in the background the whole time while they were..

Activision Officially Announces GoldenEye 007: Reloaded For PlayStation 3

As we suspected when details about the game leaked yesterday, Activision has officially confirmed GoldenEye 007: Reloaded for the PlayStation 3 this afternoon

The title is an HD remake of last year's Wii-exclusive GoldenEye, err, redux. Yeah, we're trying hard to get our heads around that too. See, last year's GoldenEye 007 (for Wii) was a complete reimagining of Rare's original movie block-buster..

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. So we're super excited to learn that last year's Wii exclusive GoldenEye reboot could be coming to the PlayStation 3 in high-definition. The rumours first emerged late last month when a bunch of domain..

Mimicking Vancouver 2010's simplistic single-player campaign; taking the Winter Olympics online is a simple case of match-making or lobby hunting

Hosts can setup a varying number of stacked events (all 14 from the main game) for up to four online players to compete in. Medals are attributed according to success, but sadly are only stored by the lobby you're participating in. It would have been cool..
