Because it was likely this or nothing at all. Even if we just get the offline game at 4k with a smooth 60, that's far and away the easiest and best way to play the game now. Even the specialised emulator versions on pc have their imperfections.Blame Nintendo, can’t be sold separately and no pc version and no online lol, why did ms agree to this crap, who knows
For me that only really works if I use the downsample by 1/2 after, otherwise it's enough to make flaws like the super close lod levels and what not much more apparent. With the 1/2 option it's still enhanced by the internal res being higher but not too much so.Agreed. 5th gen games don't look that great when you upscale them as much. N64 in particular has some VI filters that only Angrylion and Parallel RDP can emulate. The razor sharp look of those HLE graphics plugins don't look great.
The best look for N64, IMO, is Parallel RDP ar 2x upscale. That's 480p with the filters enabled. It's just high-res enough to not look blurry but low-res enough to not look completely unnatural. And the slight softness of the N64 filters looks great at that resolution.
I don’t think 4K on this game is a bonus. Stil has N64 textures. I’m gonna hook my Switch up to my CRT.
The N64 version has a terrible frame rate in MP and of course isnt playable online.If you’re doing that just hook up your N64.
About time but, look forward to this tomorrow. The SP and times has plenty of replay ability compared to some N64 games that last all of a couple hours.
So it's that same NSO multiplayer, that's bogus.Yes, it’s built in the emulator though, not in the game. So you basically play P2P with people you know and I’m not sure it would work well (latency wise) with more than one other player.
The licensing is actually a giant clusterfuck:
Ehhhhhh...It's unfinished. It's buggy as shit and crashes constantly. Has memory leaks. The graphics swap also results in bugging out your arms and eventually resulting in a hard crash...For campaign the 360 remaster is the only way to go. Takes about 30 seconds of research to figure out how to play it on PC. They literally upgraded the visuals on every front and you can switch to old-school visuals with the press of a button. It was flawless.
To be fair it works surprisingly well with 2 players, played several SNES games to completion with a friend hundreds of km away and it was excellent.So it's that same NSO multiplayer, that's bogus.
I don't have friends , i need matchmaking.To be fair it works surprisingly well with 2 players, played several SNES games to completion with a friend hundreds of km away and it was excellent.
But with 4 players and considering the already choppy FPS of Goldeneye MP? I’m not sure it will be pleasant.
I'm disappointed too but at least we have something playable on Xbox. I've played the remaster but I'll have fund with this too. Also not everyone has a PC set up for gaming.Whomever leaked the XBLA remaster gave me my fix. And what, I can't be disappointed that an already existing and superior remaster won't be officially completed? There are already emulators out there capable of doing this, so yeah, it stings.
Nintendo is such an asshole to negotiate with. Microsoft allowed Banjo Kazooie to be on the N64 emulator and allowed Banjo (and Steve from Minecraft) to be put in Smash, yet they won't even allow Microsoft to release an updated version of Goldeneye on xbox or sell Goldeneye separately. If I was Phil Spencer, I would be losing my patience over how disrespectful Nintendo has been. "Goodwill" is not in the Nintendo vocabulary, apparently.
Ye kinda where I'm at too, my older brothers swears he'll 100% though having been waiting like mad. Gonna be nice to play some MP this weekend with 3 other friends while having some drinks though.One of my all time faves but i think for me nostalgia will be nice but I dont know that I will play it that much in reality.
Microsoft is spending $70b on Activision, maybe they should've used that money for a better GoldenEye version.Nintendo is such an asshole to negotiate with.
