NXpress Nintendo Podcast #39: ‘Perfect Dark’ and our 16 Predictions



Perfect Dark Rare Podcast

Few games were more eagerly anticipated than Rare’s unofficial sequel to GoldenEye 007 back in the year 2000. This week we continue our month-long spotlight on Rare by discussing what makes Perfect Dark one of the best games released on the Nintendo 64. Perfect Dark isn’t groundbreaking like its predecessor – but it takes everything that makes GoldenEye 007 so good and makes it even better. Perfect Dark has a compelling story (partly based on Blade Runner and Ghost in the Shell); a killer soundtrack; brooding atmosphere, a great protagonist; and, an immensely enjoyable multiplayer mode. But before we get to Joanna Dark, we address the 20-year anniversary plans for Pokémon and reveal our 2016 Nintendo predictions. All this and a David Bowie tribute!
