A Perfect Dark reboot would be my preference , it would be a very welcome alternative to COD

I'd like it to be Conker, but I wouldn't think that had enough appeal to play a "real important role."

I think it'll be Killer Instinct as there's been a lot of talk about it recently, sadly I'm not the slightest bit interested in fighting games.

Agreed on both points. I'd love a Conker game, but doubt it due to reasons of popularity and taste, whilst Killer Instinct was rumoured but I have little interest in.

Dare i hope for Viva Pinata? Even a Kinect version would do.

No Banjo Kazooie? Oh deary me Wilson. :wink:

Hopfully it's either Conker, Killer Instinct, Viva Pinata or the already mentioned game above.

After the mess they made of PD:Z, can you blame anyone for not giving a shit?

Blast Corps would make my year, but sure they said many moons ago they didn't see any way they could expand it, and as it was Nintendo published i'm not even sure who owns the rights - such an underrated/underloved game >sigh<

Would anyone buy a launch Perfect Dark game after the previous effort!? :|

Was she blonde?! Had a weird recollection she was a ginner? :|

Feel that somehow the shooter market has become too saturated for PD to stand out anyway, unless they could write some incredible story for it. Would much rather they focused elsewhere tbh, be a shame if they finally broke free from the clutches of kinect development to make more of the same old shit!

good point on hair, edited it to match.

But yeah, while the orginal was a great game, and is still fun its clearly aged - as its unremarkable prequel showed it doesn't hold up too well by modern standards of FPS

Ive actually never played Perfect Dark Zero (Ive heard its pretty dire) so I still have the great memories of the original.

Clearly my hopes of a reboot are delusional :(
