Because even the Tested guys couldn't figure out how to trick an N64 into getting on the Internet, we'll be playing the new Wii remake of GoldenEye 007 on this week's Thursday Night Throwdown! Frankly, I'm almost more surprised that we're playing a Wii game on TNT as I am that this remake actually got made!

If the promise of two action-packed hours of GoldenEye action isn't enough to draw you in, we've also got three copies of the game--complete with a gold, limited-edition Classic Controller Pro--and a whole gang of these kick-ass Oddjob-themed shirts to give away. If you're lucky, you may even get a chance to shoot some folks from Activision! Now how much would you pay? 

         

If you've got GoldenEye 007 for the Wii, and you want to get in on the action, here's what you need to do:

  1. Enter Giant Bomb's GoldenEye 007 GAME-SPECIFIC friend code into your copy of GoldenEye 007 for the Wii. HERE IS THAT CODE: 1020 8491 3859
  2. Post your GoldenEye 007 GAME-SPECIFIC friend code in the comments below. This is a SEPARATE CODE from your Wii system code, and consists of only 12 characters, rather than 16. You can find this code within the GoldenEye multiplayer menus.
  3. Get online and be ready to play between 4PM and 6PM Pacific Daylight Time this Thursday!
  4. No Mr. Bond, I expect you to die!

In the meantime, here's the intro to the 1991 animated series, James Bond Jr. Enjoy, and see you on Thursday night!

Damn, so complicated to get things going with the Wii.

#4 Posted by Mrskidders (1330 posts) -

Is it a four player game online game?  Hope they manage to get enough people to start a match.

#9 Posted by OtakuGamer (1285 posts) -

I just thought it was a Thursday today because of this post. Hmmm....

#10 Posted by aurahack (2289 posts) -

James Bond Jr. was fucking awesome. I have, like, two of the books or something.

#11 Posted by durden77 (303 posts) -

Damn, that shirt alone makes me want to get this game and play this Thursday.

#12 Posted by tmj (66 posts) -

This games makes me want to buy a Wii. And that is saying a lot.

#13 Edited by Blair (2531 posts) -

I was a one year old when that James Bond Jr. show came out.  I'm so glad I dodged that awful, awful bullet.  Ryan, you have introduced me to this insanity, thanks a lot.
 
I think I'm owed reparations.  I'll take that shirt and a copy of the game.

#14 Posted by adoggz (2070 posts) -

this is going to be the most painful tnt to watch, just gonna be 2 hours of getting a match set up and maybe 1 game.

#15 Posted by RampageAssassin (427 posts) -
@Mrskidders: It has up to 8 players online
#16 Posted by AlisterCat (5722 posts) -

I expect a low turnout but I still think it's going to be fun to watch.

I love the fact that Ryan had to really sell this TNT session, lol.

#18 Posted by Jayross (2365 posts) -

They should have two consoles so that they can set-up one match while the other is being streamed.

#19 Posted by Megasoum (362 posts) -

Poor intern who will have to enter all those 12 digit codes haha

#20 Posted by mm665 (408 posts) -

Are they giving free games to have someone to play with on this week TNT?

#21 Posted by Inzzy (106 posts) -

It is still not late to rename this weeks TNT to "TNT: Vinny and Drew's Random Show"?

#22 Posted by insane_shadowblade85 (1525 posts) -

The Wii's debut on TNT. Let's see how this goes.
#23 Posted by ShaneDev (1696 posts) -

I think I saw James Bond Jr before but holy god that looks awful.

#24 Posted by Sessh (1062 posts) -

Oh god, no. There's going to be way to much Oddjob in this. I know already that this isn't going to be good for my blood pressure.

It's a shame Nintendo went with one of the most convoluted methods possible for online play.  
It feels like there's a real chance you'll get no players...

#26 Posted by VicRattlehead (1400 posts) -

Don't think anyone will show up for this the wii gets vilified on the forums

#27 Posted by Zidd (1857 posts) -

I will jump through the necessary hoops to get involved in another TNT.

Same here.  I was thinking:  Wait, what?  No way it's Thursday already.
#29 Posted by President_Barackbar (3474 posts) -

Hooray for xenophobic methods of playing with others online! Seriously, the Wii doesn't have online play so much as it has VPN play.

#30 Posted by Scooper (7881 posts) -

I'm betting 5 people show up for the TNT.

Being unemployed has caused me to completely lose track of what day it is, so the same thing happened to me.

Same here. You know you're in trouble when you keep track of the days by your workout routine.
Actually, that applies even if you are employed.
#41 Posted by shenstra (166 posts) -

I'd happily jump through some hoops if the game were out in Europe. Sadly it's not out until Friday. :-( 

#42 Posted by TheHBK (5563 posts) -

I don't know, the game was not that much fun to watch in the quicklook.  Why not do the 4 player split screen from the N64?  At least throw that in there for comparison's sake for 30 minutes.

#43 Posted by ThatFrood (3394 posts) -

Oh man, I can't wait to get down.
  

#44 Posted by MordeaniisChaos (5730 posts) -

Nintendo has the most fucked up online bullshit ever. I cannot imagine the reason for this bullshit. It must have wasted so much fucking time. 
 
But I really enjoyed the Quick Look so I'll probably watch this.

#45 Posted by Korolev (1725 posts) -

Jeez, that animated show looks awful. Let me guess, James Bond Jr is conveniently American, not British? You could have called the show "Generic Action Kid" and it would have still fit. 
 
How it ever got made is beyond me. Then again, 1991 is beyond me.

#46 Posted by Yanngc33 (4461 posts) -

This should be interesting seems kind of a risk to have it on wii wonder how many people there will be

#47 Posted by Sarumarine (2303 posts) -

Yeah James Bond Jr.! I actually watched a few those. Didn't think much of it, but it was funny anyway.
