so now i got that out of the way, its time to discuss. In case you forgot, or in case you don't care about getting spoiled, i'll refreshyour memory: after killing key (but not the main) baddies in russia and bangkok, bond figures out that nicole hunter was working as a mole the entire time; that she was using bond to kill pomerov in order to impress her boss. that boss, the main bad guy, is described as someone bigger than bond, and mi6 and EVERYTHING; that he is everywhere (hmm, this sounds farmiliar) but she refuses to give bond a name. Nicole is then gunned down by a drone plane passing overhead, presumably by the nameless ultra baddie and the story ends as a cliffhanger with the classic "james bond will return" having a more ominous sound to it.
So I wanted to create a thread to discuss this main baddie. is he an old friend or someone we've never met? we can discuss all espects about the future of this storyline. Here are some candidates for "nameless ultra baddie":
Quantum - I don't think quantum is involved, it doesn't really make sense to me if this was just quantum the whole time because we've been through all this stuff before. Bruce Feirstein was not involved in casino royale or QoS and is not the type of writer who needs to be recycling other people's villians. plus the developers mentioned that bloodstone is not part of the CR/QOS storyline.
Greco - now, I was under the impression that Greco was the main villian of this game, I thought i read that somewhere, maybe someone writing an article was confused? If memory serves, greco is last seen getting his rear end kicked by bond when his men speed away towards the acropolis. bond is forced to attack leave greeko in order to persue the fleeing terrorists. I dont believe we ever find out what happened to greeko, but presumable he escaped, meaning he could end up being the main bad guy. greeko is the only major character new to this game who did not die. still, greeko doesn't seem like ultra baddie, the fact that we met him in the opening scene pulling a small, perhaps poorly organized, terrorist job only to not hear from him for the rest of the tale makes me doubt that he has the amount of pull that nameless ultra baddie was alluded to having.
Guy on Phone - Shortly before her final drive, Nicole is in her office doing to phone meeting disucssion who will be the next hit. only one other voice is heard, the voice of a man, but this man did not strike me as an ultra villian, i go the impression that nicole was he highest ranked person on the call, judging from the way she directed the conversation ("I appreciate your concern but MI6 won't be a concern .... So we are all agreed? Porter will be our next target"), perhaps she was speaking on behalf of nameless ultra baddie? perhaps he was merely listening, only to speak if a need arised? or perhaps the voice on the phone did indeed belong to Nameless ultra baddie?
Pierce Brosnan - could it be that Pierce Brosnan still dispises Daniel Craig for taking his job and is out for revenge? I Think yes!
I have not heard any official word that the developers had planned on making this a series, but now it seems clear that they will be, and i'm sure preparations are very much underway. In her phone meeting, nicole mentions that the next target would be a british scientist/businessman named Simon Porter, so we could except to see him somewhere early in Bloodstone 2.
Aside from that? I think we're still pretty much in the dark. is there anything in the game that i missed?
