Before there was Halo, the kind of console FPS was by far Rare's N64 powerhouse Goldeneye
. The title not only perfected console FPS but created what is still in the short list of games based on a movie that were actually a good game. It seems like Goldeneye
is finally about set to find it's place as the Nintendo/MGM/Microsoft/Rare/Activision licensing issue is rumored to have been straightened out. No doubt with a lot of cash. That's right kids, Goldeneye may be coming to Xbox Live Arcade
. Xbox Evolved, the site that broke this rumor, is reporting that the title will be released shortly before the release of the next James Bond game. I do recall reading a similiar rumor a few weeks ago about Goldeneye
for XBLA being done but shelved due to issues. These two rumors combined may point to this rumor actually being true. Xbox Evolved believes Perfect Dark
will also be heading to Xbox Live Arcade.
The Fast and the Furriest
Xbox 360 Fanboy has been informed by an insider of the possible Rare XBLA game that is in development. The Fast and the Furriest is a sports based party game that makes use of the Xbox Live Vision camera and Rare's extensive back catalog of furry creatures
. Minigames included in the game will reportedly include the 100 yard dash, hurldes, tip-tup curling and bungee run. After the release of the title, downloadable content will expand the library of minigames available.
