Goldeneye Source 5.0 series

Due to completely forgetting about the development of this game and only remembering today I downloaded it before I came to work and haven't tested it yet but I would love it if a few of us would get it and we can hold a little tournament style competition and record it for the channel. It is a remastered version of the N64 classic Goldeneye. Not by the official makers, i think it's a Half Life 2 mod but it is free. It's multilayer only and if it has team battles then we could get something going. Goldeneye was a massively popular game in its time and is still known as a benchmark in FPS gaming history.
If anyone is interested then you can take a look at their website below

No way.. I remember playing this on the N64 on Christmas Day, 4 control pads, one little box each and running around a map to get hold of Scaramanga's golden gun.

Absolute classic, hope it delivers, from that the source version looks identical.

It was made to be as identical as it can but with updated graphics. There's a few good game modes with it aswell. Here's the scenario list and descriptions

There is team based and FFA scenarios, could be a great new line of videos for the channel.
Servers can be hosted locally if you have a good connection with low ping so it doesn't affect everyone's ability to play and can control the maps rotation etc. They also have a recommended host which I will check out. Works over LAN as well.

EDIT: looked up their recommended host, Jest, and it's the same as most servers for games like this. Can get 8 player slots for $8 a month with TC2 admin panel etc. I wouldn't mind getting that if it is going to be worth it as ive ran game servers like these before

Had a quick go just now before I go to bed. Quite fun, gonna take a little hit to get used to the speed of it using a controller or may just go with a mouse lol


Also games have the option to spectate so could work for someone to record it and commentate etc

I think even my laptop could run this. Does it run on Windows 10?

Yes I'm running Windows 10, I dropped the majority of the graphics settings to medium or low and it still looks great

Yeah since its the source engine you really wont have a problem running it on anything better than a potato. I'd go with the keyboard and mouse for accuracy's sake, since aim assist isnt a thing if im not mistaken.
Never played the original myself but have seen plenty of youtube vids talking about how great it was so this should be a good entry for me. I'll try it tonight.

It was great Chullo, rebooted the first person shooter.

How popular is it online and what's the storyline mode like.

No story mode is planned for now its soley multiplayer, not to say something couldnt happen down the line.

I haven't had a proper look at how active it is online as I only tested it quick with me against bots. But I'm pretty sure there will be a decent amount of people on at most times. I dint think they had any plans to make single player anytime soon as it is a lot of work

I never was very good with graphics but I can do basic editing so putting together a template for the video thumbnail for YouTube :)

I cannot wait to see this being played, I remember playing this years ago and it was the best James Bond game by miles
