Speedrunner Marc Rutzou has held the world record for Goldeneye 007’s Train level since 2010, improving on times that no other runner could match. His long reign has finally come to an end as another runner finally managed to tie his record.
Far off in the distance, beyond the murky arctic waters, the vague silhouette of a tower can be seen through the mist. You raise your sniper rifle for a closer look. A solitary island is nestled away from all the chaos. What secrets does it hold?
Dam is the first mission in GoldenEye. For fifteen years the fastest anyone was able to complete it as 53 seconds. Bryan Bosshardt set the original record back in 2002 and people have only managed to tie it ever since. Yesterday, Karl Jobst made history by finishing the level in 52 seconds.
Speedrunning communities build up their share of stories. Legendary runs, heartbreaking chokes and new trick discoveries abound. Goldeneye 007 speedrunner RWhiteGoose has sat down to chronicle the tales behind one of Goldeneye’s best levels.
Call off the search, I’m pretty sure I shot this guy in Facility back in 1998.
For over ten years now, a group of fans have been recreating GoldenEye’s multiplayer on the PC. Last week, the latest version of their efforts was released.
Goblins getting you down? Tired of dying over and over again? Just sit down and take a load off! Don't worry, they won't hurt you!
Thank goodness for hungry children, because if not for them I'd be blowing $250 on a Moto 360 right now for no other reason than to load it with the watch face from GoldenEye 007.
As a young lad my gaming library was pretty limited, so I needed to find ways to make those games last. You can only play a game so many times before you've explored every nook and cranny of it, and once that happened it was time to get creative.
Here's Pierce Brosnan, playing Goldeneye with Jimmy Fallon. Brosnan's not the best at the game, but hey, that's OK. He can say he used to be James Bond.
One of the most beloved first-person shooters ever to grace a Nintendo console was born of a movie that was not James Bond's finest outing. One would think the greatest secret agent in the world would take less time to kill Sean Bean, for one.
Secret agent James Bond doesn't just have gadgets and charm at his disposal. He can also count on a number of glitch advantages in Goldeneye—glitches which you can replicate in your own game.
"Hey, stop looking at my screen!" is a pretty common refrain when people are playing competitive multiplayer games in the same room. In Screencheat, it's the only way to win.
The classic N64 shooter GoldenEye 007 lives again for a few minutes, thanks to a modder, William Kjellgren, who remade one of the most known maps of the game, the Facility, using the Far Cry 3 engine.
Awesome Games Done Quick has, no lie, delivered some absolutely compelling video game theater this weekend already. That's a genuine roar from the audience when these runs are finished, and the cheering is richly deserved. Early this morning we got another instant classic: A world-record run of Goldeneye.
I always figured I'd be pretty crap if I had to survive in a real-life version of GoldenEye. I was pretty solid at the N64 game back in the day (or at least, I think I was), but give me an actual Klobb and set me loose, and I'd be done for.
Fellow gamers who came of age in the late 1990s may remember that any time four or more of their friends got together in one place, a round of GoldenEye was almost certain to break out. From 1997 through at least 1999, it seemed to be almost everywhere. Even players (like yours truly) who didn't own a Nintendo 64 put…
A UK modder wanted to do a favor for his American buddy, who is still obsessed with Star Wars: Episode I Racer 13 years after it released on the Nintendo 64. In the game, if you enter a certain code you can use two N64 controllers to control the pod racers' engines independently. So how would that game play if both…
Earlier this week, we published an intelligent takedown of the beloved Nintendo 64 James Bond first-person shooter GoldenEye. Maybe, our guest writer wrote, this game was a little bit flawed. Maybe the campaign was monotonous and the multiplayer map design was weird. Maybe we can still love the game despite or…
