First Impressions: GoldenEye 007 Multiplayer

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.

Dirk Dares to Conquer Wii with Dragon’s Lair Trilogy

All three games for one cheap price

We've already seen Dragon's Lair on DSiWare and it seems Digital Leisure and Destineer aren't ready to give up on Dirk the Daring, as they're combining to bring all three titles in the series to Wii in one package.


NBA Jam Spreads Boss Battles on Your Basketball

Magic, Rodman and more will school you

We 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.


Lovefilm Streaming Heading to Wii

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.

Kirby’s Epic Yarn Unravels to 2011 in Europe

Predictably, it sucks

We've had chance to play Kirby's Epic Yarn in both single-player and co-operative multiplayer, and both occasions only served to increase our thirst for the newly-knitted one's next adventure.

The Carnival of Video Game Bloggers is moving on

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]
