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?..

Enslaved Gets Nominated For An Ivor Novello Award

Enslaved was one of the most under-rated games of last year

Anything it lacked in gameplay polish was more than made up by the game's beautiful art direction and fantastic characterisation. While the game might not have been recognised as widely as it should have been amongst the gaming community, it can at least add a feather to its bow in the form of an Ivor Novello award nomination for its..

Football Manager 2011 Tops The UK Charts As 007 Languishes Outside The Top Ten

The UK charts paint a bizarre picture this week

Apparently Britain still loves football (both Football Manager 2011 and FIFA 11 occupy the chart's top two spots), but it seems there's not quite the same love for 007 at the moment. Activision's Wii-exclusive Goldeneye reboot only managed to reach the thirteen in the charts, while Blood Stone debuted way down in the 18th spot. PlayStation Move..

James Bond 007: Blood Stone Gets Launch Trailer, Still Looks Exciting To Us

We suppose we have a weakness to anything with James Bond on the cover

The last PlayStation 3 Bond game, Quantum Of Solace, was pretty rubbish. But we still found ourselves ploughing in the 30 hours or so needed to get the Platinum trophy. It's because it's got Bond on the box. Even though Activision appears dead-set on burying James Bond 007: Blood Stone, we can't help but feel a little excited..

James Bond 007: Blood Stone To Hit UK Retailers On November 5th

That's soon, right? We knew James Bond 007: Blood Stone was slated for this year, but it always felt like it was some way off

Mainly because the game only got announced a couple of months ago and, despite countless developer videos, not a lot's been said about the game. Still, it's out in two weeks according to VG247. The site also claims that there's no demo planned, so you're going to have to go..

.. It'll be the car sequences. With a studio like Bizarre Creations at the helm, there's absolutely no way the racing segments fail. This is their bread and butter. James Bond 007: Blood Stone continues to look really interesting to us. We're big Bond fans and we even enjoyed the last 007 game, Quantum Of Solace. Bizarre's a great studio, hopefully this exceeds expectations.

James Bond 007: Blood Stone is going to be out later in the year, and it sounds like quite an exciting package

It's a brand new story; with shooting, stealth and driving and there's multiplayer. According to Bizarre, the multiplayer's designed for 16-players, and is based around team objectives. Hopefully this makes use of Blood Stone's various mechanics (vehicles, stealth, combat). If so, it could..

Activision's released an extended version of the James Bond 007: Blood Stone trailer from last week

The new trailer shows Bond driving through the streets of Istanbul and shooting-up some bad guys. The visuals look a bit rough, but truth be told, we have high hopes for this game. Hopefully Bizarre Creations can deliver the goods. They've yet to really disappoint me this generation.

We Really, Really, Really Hope James Bond 007: Blood Stone Is Good

There's no Bond movie this year

It feels like there should be. Quantum Of Solace was ages ago, and we're now being told that there won't even be a Bond movie in 2012 due to financial difficulties. Frankly, it makes us sick. We need Bond. So it's with lofty expectation that we wish, pray, demand and hope Bizarre Creations can deliver with their upcoming video game James Bond 007: Blood Stone. This..

If ever we had a weakness, file it under James Bond games

We were probably the only publication who genuinely loved (and played to death) the last James Bond game, Quantum Of Solace. So good. Perhaps then, our excitement for James Bond 007: Blood Stone should be tempered a little. GoldenEye aside, Bond games aren't traditionally good. But they are Bond games, y'know. There's something to be said..
