GoldenEye Wii at Gamescon
Here are some of the latest screenshots of GoldenEye from Gamescon in Europe. It's looking damned good. The Nintendo Wii desperately needs a First-Person Shooter that proves the superiority of motion controls and propels the hardware. Disruption in this genre would prove devastating to the HD Twins. Expectations are high, and we've seen several attempts to recapture the magic of the Nintendo 64 classic before, but Eurocom might very well deliver.
Don't kid yourself that this isn't a major title in the 2010 Holiday lineup. This is Nintendo's most crucial third-party title, as critically important as Just Dance 2. All it takes is for one shooter like GoldenEye to become a steady seller on the charts, and the core genre of the Twins will become disrupted. Still a lot of Big If's at the moment, but I've got a good feeling about this game.
