New Intel on the Goldeneye Remake

You want a Goldeneye Re-Make?  YOU CAN’T HANDLE A GOLDENEYE REMAKE!

Well, maybe you can.  These prospective box art images, part of an upcoming customer survey from Activision, got leaked to GoNintendo.  Mumblings about the re-make have intensified since Activision registered a Goldeneye website, Goldeneyegame.com.  Shortly after, word came out that Activision had planned to release the original N64 game as a downloadable, but that it (and presumably any Other Goldeneye projects) were being held up by legal issues revolving around the various licensing agreements required to publish a re-make of a game based on a film franchise…

According to Eurogamer, the new Goldeneye, now a Nintendo exclusive, is out of development limbo and on track to be in stores this holiday season.  If that’s even close to true, there will be a HUGE unveiling at E3.  So make yourself a martini and keep your eyes peeled, because it seems like good news is on the way.

How To… Build a Portable N64

How much do you love N64?  Do you get sad whenever you have to leave your house without it?  Well modder Bacteria felt your pain, and he spent four whole months devoted to fixing the problem.  Until…

Voila!

The portable N64 looks like one of those crappy Tiger handheld games, but it plays N64 Games!  It has a five inch screen, speakers and a built-in rumble pack.  One downside – it needs two camcorder batteries for three hours of juice.

As far as I know, Bacteria has no plans to sell these things, but he posted a series of videos showing you how to make your own.  All you need is a PSone screen, an N64, a rumble pack, a memory card, an N64 controller and a PSone controller… and some other stuff…  (making that case might be a little tough)

Still, it’s an awesome device.  If you have a spare N64 lying around, or if you REALLY want to play Star Fox and Smash Bros on the bus, it seems like an epic and worthwhile undertaking.  (Thanks, Gizmodo)
