James Bond Will Return, But Not In Any Worthwhile Or Meaningful Sense

I remember the olden days when people used to make video games based on movies. For the most part, they were awful.

Then people started making movies based on video games. For the most part, they were awful.

Now people are so confused they can't tell the difference between a video game and a movie, and games are promoted with trailers and have actors, stunt co-ordinators and writers from movieland, and title sequences with theme songs by screeching harpies. I haven't played a video game since Bubble Bobble in 1991 so I have no idea whether or not this will be awful:

What I do know, though, is that with this, the Quantum Of Solace game and the new GoldenEye game, Daniel Craig will have played James Bond more times in games than in films.

And that makes me cry.

  1. The drummer's a bit busy on the title track, in't he?

  2. I don't know, I couldn't hear it over the sound of my own crying.

  3. A depressing fact indeed. MGM need to pull their socks up and get Bond 23 made!

  4. I think it's time for another reboot! James Bond Junior, starring Taylor Lautner!

    ergh, that thought even made me feel a bit ill.

  5. At least Prince of Persia was somewhat OK.

  6. TheUnwashedMass, wash your mouth out with vinegar and broken glass.
