  • Perfect Dark: the oral history of an N64 classic

    It was never meant to take as long as it did.

    As far as the GoldenEye team were concerned, Perfect Dark should have come out a year or two after their seminal console first person shooter, a quick fire follow-up to one of the greatest games ever made.

    But it wasn't long before trouble knocked on the door of Rare's countryside farmhouse in Twycross.

    First, Martin Hollis, the genius programmer who led the GoldenEye team to stardom on the Nintendo 64, left the company at which he had become a legend.

    His acrimonious exit set off a chain reaction that led to the Free Radicals - Dr. David Doak, Karl Hilton, Steve Ellis and Graeme Norgate - walking out soon after to form their own studio.

    Those who remained were left to pick up the pieces.

    Struggling to cram a game bursting at the seams with ambition into the Nintendo 64's tiny memory limit, the developers of Perfect Dark achieved what once looked impossible: the highest rated Rare game of all time.

    This is the funniest gun that I have ever made! When you use the Double
    blast function, you hear "You Bitch" over and over again! Use the Laser
    with paintball turned on for an even funnier effect! Repeatedly tap B for
    the rapid reload. Heheheheheh.....

    THE LAPTOP HELLRAISER

    Laptop Sentry Gun/LX bullets/255

    This gun uses the Sentry gun as the first function. The secondary function
    is a one hit kill with Magnum (LX) Bullets. Hold the B button down while
    firing the Magnum bullets.

    COMBAT KNIFE WITH FLY-BY-WIRE

    This code disables the 1st function, with the secondary function being a
    Fly-By-Wire throwing Combat Knife. You can turn around corners, etc. It
    takes a little practice.

    The History or Story Behind My Guns

    May 23, 2000. I picked this game up as soon as it came out. Little did I know
    that I was about to embark on a career that would continue until this day.
    It was after reading Square Guru's guide, and Will Mistretta's guide, that
    I was able to create my own Perfect Dark guns.
