A listing on United Kingdom based retailer HMV has revealed the name of a long-rumored to exist James Bond racing game from Bizarre. According to the listing, it will be called "James Bond: Bloodstone"
If you can believe it, I originally reported on rumors of the game back in 2007! (Back then, we all wore onions on our belts.) The game supposedly will combine driving, spies and weapons in a sort of Casino Royale meets Mario Kart fashion. This is a great idea, but the looooong time between rumors and actuality make me a little leery of the title. On the other hand, Bizarre is the company behind Project Gotham Racing, and that means good things are possible.
But let's put all that aside for a moment and talk about the supposed name of the game. "Bloodstone?" For a James Bond game? Sounds more like the third installment of a JRPG to me...
