If you hadn’t already figured it out from the name, GoldenEye: Source is a Total Conversion (TC) mod using Half Life 2’s powerful Source engine. The game is being produced by 36 dedicated enthusiasts who all have fond memories of the original GoldenEye for N64 and wanted to update that classic gameplay with 2005 graphics.
If, like me, you wasted centuries running around in corridors, bouncing grenades around corners or slapping proximity mines on every visible surface (especially in that alcove, just near the body armour), then the news above will have you drooling too.
The gameplay of GoldenEye on the N64 has still never been bettered. Sadly, the graphics have. Going back to play it is still fun but it’s a shock seeing how much it stutters once there’s a few big explosions going on in 4-player mode.
And while we’re at it – can someone please do an update of the original Wipeout? All the sequels were shite, they never had the compelling speed or sense of reality of the original. Do that again, but better!
