You know, it's a bit difficult to get any joke on the Internet.

So I've learned. I thought the statement was too ridiculous to be taken seriously, but I guess the Internet hampers sarcasm far more than I thought.

Soo...is there any article to back these allegations up? A Goldeneye port on iOS would be pretty sweet.

The 2012 phenomenon emerged out of the counter culture and hippie movement in the 70's and numerous actual mayan scholars and modern day mayans who are historians of their culture say that there is no Mayan apocalypse. Its all bull.
Finally somebody who knows what they're talking about lol. The Mayans never predicted the end of the World, it's the end of a 52 year cycle and the beginning of a new one.

And back on topic, screw golden eye, port over Perfect Dark please!

It frustrates me to see this stupid belief get pushed so much.


On subject. Both perfect dark and goldeneye are good, whichever has the most chance of showing up in the app store one day is what I want.

Let's say for one brief and insane moment that either Goldeneye N64 or Perfect Dark might be released for iOS.

You want them to port a game that uses a single stick, to a device that struggles to emulate twin stick controls?

People need to wise up. I loved Goldeneye and Perfect Dark more so, but you need to stop looking at it through Nostalgia Blinkers. It would not work, and would in fact become a detriment to the game's memory.

Yes, the Mayans didn’t predict anything. They just ended their freaking calendar. Not the world ends, the calendar restarts.
And it wasn't 2012. Somebody made a mistake while translating the calendar. The error was made when the calendar was translated into Greenwich mean time. New research has revealed that the calendar was out by two centuries. Which means humanity has another 200 years to ponder the prediction. Means 200 new iPhones until whatever.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

After seeing "Skyfall", and being so immersed in that whole James Bond vibe and reminiscing about the good old days of playing Goldeneye on the N64, it actually ocourred to me that this is a game deserving of an iOS port. I even loaded up some YouTube clips just to revisit some of my favorite levels and wallow in nostalgia for a bit.
Sadly, like you guys said, it will probably never happen, due to Rare and Nintendo owning the rights to the game. However, it'd make my year if this did turn out to happen...

I've wanted this for so long! I hope your rumour is true. A couple of years back I got so excited when I saw it was being released for iOS but then it turned out to be a 2D turn-based game

Biggest disappointment ever.

It'd fit perfectly on iDevices, and no doubt it would run smoothly.
