007 GoldenEye N64, Xbox Live Arcade, XBLA, Emulators & Emulation, Tips, Tricks,
I've launched a new YouTube Channel. I have a review of the GoldenEye Reloaded game. Read my review here. It's not bond, but could Rockstar be launching Agent next? It could be the next best thing to another James Bond video game. It's something interesting to think about. News hopefully breaks soon.
I'm writing a tutorial for GoldenEye on PC, which you input to your HDTV. GE in HD! If you have a decent graphics card you can crank the eye candy settings. You will be impressed with GoldenEye N64 version on an HDTV powered by PC and not the console.
I hope to add a tutorial that will get your original N64 controller thumbstick back closer to its former glory. I've looked into those 3rd party thumbstick replacements and I can tell you don't buy these. Do a painless repair and cleanup. I will be going through this process and telling you my thoughts on the end result.
evolution of GoldenEye
GoldenEye is an evolutionary game. Lets take a look at what is happening after so many years. We are hot on the heels of a new GoldenEye Wii release. From all accounts, it's an amazing GoldenEye game. Is it the original? No of course not. It is however much better than any GoldenEye or 007 game that has come out probably since GoldenEye N64. Can we all blame EA for that? Unfortunately it seems that EA didn't exactly do 007 games the true justice they deserved. Their sales and success indicate that they got a failing grade. Activision is a ray of hope for 007 video games.
I still do believe that the original GoldenEye N64 will come out on the Xbox and on the Wii. The reason is obvious why they couldn't release it before. How could they release that game if they have been working on GoldenEye Wii for the past 2 or 3 years? They simply couldn't. That's why we settled for Perfect Dark on the Xbox. No guarantee that it's going to come out, but I hope it does. That said, I'm not impressed with how Microsoft handled the Xbox Live Arcade version of Perfect Dark. They prove once again that they can't help but mess with a great game and that they must make changes to it even though they claim it's the original N64 Perfect Dark. So I guess part of me is a little worried about what they would do to the original GoldenEye if they came out with the original game on these new consoles.
Gameplay? Yes, that seems pretty darn good even by todays standards. When I haven't played for a couple months and then play again, I'm never disappointed. This keeps happening so I can confirm the game hasn't lost playability over time. We can't forget that in 2008, 007 GoldenEye N64 can be played online and including multiplayer with Mupen64k or Mupen64++ emulator.
Tutorial here for playing GE online. Rumour has it that there is going to be an even better performing online engine! Perfect Dark levels G5, Grid, Car Park, and Chicago in 007 GoldenEye N64 as multi levels. Block Fort from Mario Kart as a new multi level!
New missions as good as Rare! All single player levels have been converted into multiplayer. GE on PC gives you hi-res graphics, faster framerates and use a usb adapter for your original N64 controllers. I bring you tips, tricks and strats. Re-learn what you might have forgotten! Forums for the new multi levels and missions!
Well let's see....Nintendo it seems squashed 007 GoldenEye N64 coming out for another rebirth. Not just a release, but an overhaul of our beloved 007 GoldenEye N64 including online gameplay and spiffy new graphics. Sounds like the game makers finally got it right. The game cannot be duplicated, cannot be bettered, so you are better off re-releasing it. Too bad that likely is never going to happen. In closing on this depressing subject, I must ask why would they invest so much time on this game if they didn't have every company onboard with releasing it? Apparently Rare was working on this for a year. Crazy to me for that investment especially IF Nintendo and others weren't signed and sealed on the re-release of 007 GoldenEye N64. GoldenEye forever? It was close eh?
On to the more important matters. Things keep moving along with GoldenEye on PC. Let's get one thing straight. This IS the evolution of GoldenEye. I keep saying it, but the bar keeps getting raised, and then raised some more. This is all thanks to the geniuses like Wreck, SubDrag, Zoinkity, bmw, and others (sorry not to mention all you guys here). We've seen recently levels from other games such as Block Fort (Mario Kart) and a few levels from Banjo Kazooie as full fledged 007 GoldenEye N64 multiplayer levels. Yes, all playable online flawlessly. So now we have Subby and the boys bringing the Perfect Dark multiplayer and single player levels into GoldenEye multiplayer! Many of them already exist and Zoinkity was the first to bring us G5 and Car Park in GoldenEye multiplayer. Many more now! See Villa here! It looks like any part of Perfect Dark, multiplayer or single player levels, can be brought into 007 GoldenEye N64 multiplayer. Don't believe me? Well read this now! And even more recently, Halo multiplayer levels are being attempted for GoldenEye multiplayer. Yes, Wizard and Hang 'Em High. Read about it here. Bmw has created a multiplayer level that is entirely his own creation! See it here. Oh yes, even a happy level from Mario 64 is being attempted! Read about it here.
So, if you see and read what I'm saying, you do realize that once again 007 GoldenEye N64 is evolving. A game that won't go away regardless what Nintendo thinks.

play 007 GoldenEye N64 with single screens - all you need to know
For us, single screen GoldenEye all started with the desire to play an ultra stealth style. So, we hooked up 007 GoldenEye N64 using the PC monitor with tv tuner card and my television. We cut out some black construction paper, blocked off the other players screen and viola, we had 2 player single screen GoldenEye! Crude but effective. Our games at that time consisted of All Sniper Rifles, No Radar and LTK mode. It rocked. Then as all things, we evolved into have 4 televisions all blocked off for the ultimate GoldenEye death match sessions. We haven't gone back honestly. For now we like a steady diet of weaponry that don't allow for second chances. It's all or nothing. What's the point of having the damage display if you can't read your opponents levels I ask. So, we stick with combos like All Rockets, Golden Gun Fun and LTK mode with bullet style weaponry like All Phantoms or All Snipers.
This fantastic sky is found only in Zoinkity's Citadel in multiplayer. This is a sharp looking wallpaper so I suggest you do the right thing. Grab it!

This website was one of ten on the planet chosen to attend an all expenses paid GoldenEye: Rogue Agent community day at the EA studios in Los Angeles. It was an incredible experience and honor to be chosen. A huge thanks goes to Jon Long who really is Jon "the man" Long. It was amazing to see the game as it neared completion and to actually sit down and play the game with the lead designer. Read my story on the entire event.
The year was 2000 and I was organizing a local 007 GoldenEye N64 Tournament. So I called a local radio station and said to them I'm the best player in the city and the tournament was going to prove it. They thought I was crazy enough that they did a spontaneous interview with me on the radio. Listen to me when I was a cocky young chap. Thanks Larry and Willy!
Watch his amazing single player videos and see why they call him crazy. Because when your first name is Wouter, fast just isn't fast enough. Watch and see the fastest possible times on all the single player missions and difficulties. Is he cocky? You bet. Will you think that he is cheating? You bet. Is he the best? Watch and decide for yourself.
