Surely few words cause such excitement and rampant nostalgia in the Nintendo community as “GoldenEye multiplayer”, so it was with great anticipation we sat down to play Activision’s new Bond outing in a split-screen four-player deathmatch.

Disappointed that Derailed on BBC One is the Clive Owen one, not Van Damme's superior flick.
Magic, Rodman and more will school youWe recently got chance to play a little two-on-two with NBA Jam and came away a little dizzy but thoroughly entertained nonetheless. Although no fresh information was given during our hands-on time, a recent interview with the game's creative director Trey Smith has smashed the backboard of secrecy and set the NBA Jam information scoreboard on fire.
European film fans will probably be familiar with Lovefilm, an online DVD and game rental service with some 1.4 million members across Europe. Primarily built on discs and web-based viewing, the service has now signed an agreement with Widevine to allow Wii owners a chance to watch movies online through their console.
Special "chocks away" #ff for @TomPhillips151, about to start at Eurogamer next week. The world of Nintendo reporting has lost a giant :(
I’ve been running the Carnival of Video Game Bloggers for over three and a half years now: here’s the first Carnival for those of you curious to see how it started. It features the inaugural Jordan Bieber Award for Most Articles Submitted and a photo from Spartacus, so that’s something worth clicking for.
Sadly, I haven’t had the time to give the Carnival proper attention in the past year or so: I’ve been writing more and more for Nintendo Life as it continues to grow and devour the world of independent Nintendo reporting, but I don’t want the Carnival to die, so it’s moving hands.
Eclipse from the excellent Gaming My Way has stepped in to give the Carnival a good home, and I wanted to say a public thank you to him for taking it on permanently. I’m sure it’ll be a huge success under his guidance and I wish him all the best.
Thanks to all my regular contributors to the Carnival over the years – Jordan Bieber, Alvaro Fernandez, David Herbert, jigsaw hc, old-wizard, Eric Gargiulo, Apocalypso, Eclipse (of course!) and everyone else who sent in articles, hosted the Carnival and helped out in any way. You have my gratitude.
I’m listening to No Use Crying by Embrace, from This New Day [UK]
