Friends, the time has come: the most important first person shooter in the history of gaming * has surpassed the limitations of a single screen. Yes, GoldenEye 007 for Nintendo 64 can now be played without screen deception because British museum creates $ 10,000 worth of material to give each player their own screen. Everything is in honor of the 25th anniversary of the game.
Like my former colleague Andrew Liszewski Gizmodo points out, this would radically change the experience of one of the greatest multiplayer games of all time, requiring you and three friends to cram around a large, box TV when the game debuted 25 years ago.
In this, we agree. But this?
However, Multiplayer on a console before everything was connected to the internet was not perfect. Four players had to share the same screen, which eliminated some FPS strategies, such as finding a secret place to camp and snipe opponents.
Yes, Golden eyeScreen deception eliminated camping and the sniper rifle – but that was great with a joystick sniper rifle, where you can barely turn and aim freely while moving. Not to mention those situations when a sniper armed with an AR33 range zooms in on a sticky mine that is placed somewhere you can not see when you turn the corner, and you immediately fly to the kingdom to come.
Screen cheating did so much Golden eye the tricks are tolerable because even if you were not actively peeking into the other corners of the TV to see exactly what your opponents did, you will know they set a trap when those corners stopped moving. I have played Golden eyeis the unofficial multiplayer remake for PC, and it’s not the same, with all the camping and sniping that OG developers did not have to consider when making a game for Nintendo.
Admittedly, sour grapes are part of that! I would have a chance to try it if I could teleport magically to the Computer History Center in Cambridge this weekend. is part of what sounds like one incredible report, which may also have a fully playable version of the canceled GoldenEye Remastered for the Xbox 360.
Hopefully the museum will also retain what it was actually I am playing Golden eye and on a Nintendo 64.
BTW if you are nostalgic for screen cheating, I would highly recommend you try Screencheat the computer game where you can I have in screen cheat because every player is invisible.
