Telltale co-founder Kevin Bruner dreams of taking on James Bond franchise

Telltale Games co-founder Kevin Bruner would take on the James Bond franchise under the right circumstances, he told OXM. The company CTO, whose studio is best known for its narrative-driven Walking Dead series, lamented the decisions made by other developers that have turned the James Bond character in a "mass murderer." "I'm a giant James Bond fan and I'm always frustrated by games that make him a mass murderer," he said. "He's a super-spy, and that's a different skillset. The films make him less of a mass murderer, and there's not much killing in the books — more spying and intrigue." Telltale Games is known for taking on pre-established franchises, including Back to the Future, Jurassic Park, Fables and Game of Thrones. The James Bond series was last brought to gaming platforms...

007 Legends developer Eurocom cuts staff to below 50 employees, shifts focus to mobile

Eurocom, the developer behind the poorly-received James Bond licensed game 007 Legends, reduced its staff from more than 200 to below 50 employees today, reports GamesIndustry.biz. Reports of redundancies at the UK developer began circulating earlier this morning. The studio confirmed the layoffs in a management statement from director Hugh Binns, who said that the layoffs are part of a large-scale restructuring process due the company shifting its focus towards mobile gaming and the cancellation of several upcoming projects. "Eurocom are undertaking a restructuring which I regret to say has meant we've made the majority of our workforce redundant today," Binns wrote, according to GamesIndustry. "This includes many very experienced, talented and highly skilled employees, and we'd like...

007 Legends review: die today

007 Legends stitches together some of Bond's most memorable moments from Goldfinger, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Moonraker, License to Kill and (appropriately) Die Another Day into one supremely underwhelming first-person shooter. Bond has been injured, and as he plunges into unconsciousness, he reflects on his past exploits. A guy doing a lackluster Daniel Craig impression replaces Connery and his fellow bearers of the Bond mantle, which will either perplex you or send you into hives, depending on your tolerance for that sort of thing. Some of the original dialogue, music and even actors (like Richard Kiel as Jaws and Robert Davi as Frank Sanchez) have been transplanted in. The revisited Bond films have been blanketed in a foul, cheesy layer of shoddy game design R...

007 Legends, the upcoming first-person-shooter tour through the world of James Bond, will include a level based on 1964's Goldfinger, revealed in a new trailer from publisher Activision today.
