Kind of a mixed bag so far. I got a cheap Mayflash stick and have changed out the buttons so it all feels pretty good. Though the stick I bought didn't have an option for an octagonal gate so I had to Macguver the Mayflash octogate onto it. So it works pretty well now! So far it feels pretty good, I just have to get used to it. I can get to some stuff a lot easier but dragon punch style motions are a big problem for me on here. Though rolling ones are a lot better. Like Cammy's Hooligan Combination I can only do about half the time on a controller, but here I can get it almost at will. Just gotta work at it! Maybe I should reinstall Street Fighter V. I have it on Steam, I got it for free when it came out but once I figured out that it was missing...well most of everything I stopped playing. I still somehow felt ripped off lol.

The XBLA port of GoldenEye was basically finished. What was leaked is a closed beta and it does have a bit of noticeable visual jank, but that could very well be because it's being emulated and it's certainly not a deal breaker.

It wasn't released because of every licensing obstacle ever. Even assuming that Nintendo, Microsoft, Rare, and Activision all agreed on the terms of a remaster, the original Bond license holder was basically guaranteed to say no to whatever was proposed. Apparently they only cared about representing Bond in the newest, most current way possible (Daniel Craig and all), and didn't care about previous entries and the remastering thereof.

As for the game, it's literally the original with higher res textures, and some missing music (cut scenes, action music, and my beloved watch tune). You can't (easily) rebind the controls, which may take some getting used to.
There's a decent video of it in action here: [Link]
He couldn't demonstrate the multiplayer but it does work, both local and online.
I highly recommend his "Wha Happun" series, where he talks about what caused various infamous games to fail, and famous games to succeed.

There's another video by YouTube user Graslu00, who shows the entire game from start to finish. I think that's the video with the most views. Maaaan, I remember QA testing GoldenEye: Source with that guy in the early 2010s. Good times.

To play it, you'll need the "xenia" Xbox 360 emulator, which can be found here: [Link]
As for the game, I honestly don't recall where I found the files. I just Googled it and came across a reddit post that linked to both the emulator and a zipped file with everything you need.

I am playing a Reproduction Cart. Playing the game on my actual Super Nintendo.

I bought it from OCD Reproductions [Link] and it has been amazing. I've bought several games from them and they all have been fantastic. This is the first time I'm playing through the game, so I can't give any comparisons, but the game itself runs fantastic. So far, the game has been fun, but rather hard!

If you need help on Fat Princess, I'd be glad to help. I have 2 PS3s that have the game loaded.

And....I'm going to do it. I'm going to buy a PS5. Next week. Just have to find one first.

Hey thanks for the comment Glad you enjoyed the video and could relate to it! I'm sorry to hear you started collecting due to stress, but if it helped you feel better than it's a good thing Sounds like you have a good way of keeping it in check these days by focussing on limited editions. Hopefully it doesn't become overwhelming for you! It's a never-ending struggle to keep up with everything...

Thanks for the add, I've added you to my multi-tap too, nice to meet you! And thanks for subbing (A while ago ) I changed my username since then, but backloggery won't let me change it.

Honestly growth on TT has been much slower then anticipated vs TA. The simple reason being that there were several well established trophy sites out there and it has just struggled to compete against them.

Here is a decent Fat Princess guide:

It's weird. It was in a recent Nintendo Direct and released at the same time, if I remember. I think the first was for 3DS? Sadly no physical, but I did buy it to keep up my Kirby "collection" even though I'm not sure if digital-only should count. I do need to buy some of those 3DS mini-games I guess.

I appreciate it but that's too kind. I don't even consider them until/if I ever take on the built-in custom missions, and the fact that I didn't beat Reckoning within the 25 minute time limit to open the secret mission legitimately.

I gotta say the end was pretty anti-climactic, ending with me blowing up some supply depots, naturally. =P
(Albeit with infested Terrans, but still.)
(Don't worry about trying to use infested Terrans by the way. As fun as they are in concept, it's not worth it.)

Did that game come with cards? Must have been a store specific sort of thing, mine doesn't have cards and it was new. Just off of a retail shelf though.

Yeah old games are getting stupid expensive. It's irritating for people like you or me who just want to play the damn games on the original hardware. A big problem I'm coming to realize is "collectors" like you find on youtube. The videos can be interesting, but they buy up all this stuff just to have it then make videos about it which everyone sees and it drives the cost up further. I don't think they do it on purpose to fuck everyone over but it is a nasty side effect. (Have you looked at Gamecube prices recently? ) I'm not saying that I will realistically get around to playing EVERYTHING I have, but the intention is at least there. I'm actually making some headway during this year lol. I was actually entertaining the idea of getting Everdrives for everything and being done with it. We'll see how this ODE (when it gets here) goes over with the Saturn I just got.

You liked the voice acting!? I hope that means "ironically" lol. Because it isn't good. Just entertaining. The battle system is great though once you get a handle on it.

But don't feel bad $75 isn't a TON. The most I ever spent on a retro game was $110 for Valkyrie Profile. But that was at an estate sale that was underestimating it's value. I always wanted to play it. It is now the most valuable game I own depending on the day. It and Dracula X for SNES are constantly trading that off. I got that for about $75 back in the day, but I'm a Castlevania nut so I had to have it.

Got Arc Rise Fantasia? How much that cost you, that game has retained it's price from what I recall. Lucky I bought it when the Wii was still a thing and it was old. Got it for like $20. It is a pretty good game from a gameplay perspective though. The voice acting is fucking awful though...so get ready. It's like a bunch of those anamatronic robots from Chuck E Cheese. Except for Cecile. She's my favorite. Never left my party.

(Mad Max) It's all servers. I just checked Microsoft's Xbox Store and it displays the same message.

EDIT: It is possible to get the Platinum for this before October 31. It honestly doesn't take that long to do so. However, 2 of the trophies (Looked Everywhere and Up To The Task) are possible to glitch so you have to make frequent save backups through PS+ or an USB stick. I'm planning on getting the Platinum but I'm watching the scavenging locations and making sure the challenges and stats match up.

Additionally, 2 of the challenges for Up To The Task require an online connection to complete and a connection to the server. It's possible that progress is unrelated to the servers but I would not want to take that chance.
Thank goodness you've returned! Much has changed since you lived here, my friend.
