After noticing my "power" drop from 40 to 22, I no longer care about this issue.
I am now focused entirely on surviving my trip back to America, which strongly requires me to avoid any shock, adrenaline rushes, etc.
(For context I posted in another thread: I am barely surviving complications following a surgery, and any type of minor shock or surprise undoes some of my progress to recovery.  If I can't reach a certain level of stability within a few days I will have to cancel my flight back because as of now I can't survive on a plane, and I am far from getting there.)

I was originally a neutral party ready to join your side, trying to figure out if it was appropriate for me to unleash on that site, so it was a surprise to notice my drop, and it caused too much of a surprise.  I can only barely breathe so I had to lay down.


The degree of drop indicates that not only am I not on their side, apparently I am not on your side either (I thought I was?), and that is also causing some stress to consume more oxygen than I am able to provide.


I sincerely apologize to everyone.  :)
Good luck with everything!  ;D

To be honest, I really don't care about it that much... these sorts of articles get made about everything that ever existed all the time... I just saw it the other day and noticed all the GE:S photos they included and pointed it out in the original post cause it was interesting.

Just an update:
Complications after surgery have caused-
Keeping it simple.

I will die if I get an airplane as of now.  I am trying to recover just enough to get back to America, but there is a slight possibly that all of my work ends here.

I am afraid to say that I can't upload anything from here, so if I die then what is on the YouTube channel will be the end of it.  I will not be able to get my Perfect Dark recordings out.  They will die with me, to my greatest sadness and regret.


We have a plan to get me back to America, so please do not worry too much.  This is to eliminate confusion if I disappear.  People should know why the site might go dead.

That's all, and thank you all for enjoying them.  That's all I needed to feel fulfilled.

Rest well, and don't overexert yourself. We hope you get better.

I noticed your comment gone and they have also not responded to my e-mail, but I am across the world nearly dying after complications from surgery (just got back from the ER and more tubes down my throat) and it was a weekend so I decided to wait at least a few days.

Needless to say I am not in the best of moods.

Let me be clear on one thing: "Most of it is not even in the game!" is an invalid criticism; I happen to enjoy all of this kind of thing, regardless of whether or not it is directly in the game.  That's enough of that criticism.


I agree that the link to the red shirts and the victim trope spawned by Star Trek is weak, and I believe it is only a coincidence.  I might just ask one of the developers.

And you are providing evidence that they really do not care.  Of course I know how these work; I am just not overly familiar with this specific site.
But the evidence you are posting is extremely damning and certainly makes it feel as if they are "just another one of those kinds."

I can assure you I am no longer defending them.  As I see it now, they only have one last chance to save themselves (and they are free to consider this an ultimatum): Reply to my e-mail and make the changes, or I get the developers of GoldenEye 007 involved and it will be taken down.  I am pretty sure Graeme Norgate isn't going to be happy seeing that only Grant Kirkhope was credited, even after Graeme did most of the work and they wrote an equal number of bad-ass songs (with the #1 best (Multiplayer Theme #1) being done by Graeme).


I never take sides; I follow evidence, and your evidence is quite damning for them.  I am only giving them one last chance to respond to be as fair as possible.

*UPDATE*
I have e-mailed some of the composers and re-issued an e-mail to TheGamer explaining that they have a limited time to correct things peacefully.

Because I'm an actual journalist, and that article is complete garbage, outright steals people's content without credit, has blatantly false information, and deserves to be called out for all of those things.

And that "red shirt" reference has never to my knowledge even been confirmed by any developer of the game - it's actually stolen from a previous click-bait article on another website from 3 years ago! (http://mentalfloss.com/article/63239/15-deadly-facts-about-goldeneye-007) The truth is that there were several civilian characters that were supposed to be in Streets, but the game can only load so many different models, so they stuck with one - which happened to be wearing a red shirt - and no one associated with the game has ever said, to my knowledge, has anything to do with Star Trek. It was just made up by that original clickbait article, and regurgitated here. So the thing you "learned" about the game is just a lie.

It's not defensible at all, nor is it outrageous to point out how bad it is, since literally the whole point of the article is to make that website money on thrown-together "content" stolen from other people.

And by the way - I did post on the article and let them know these things before I posted here. My comment was DELETED and they neither corrected the false information nor gave credit to any of the stolen content that shows a completely different game than the one the article is about.

Seriously, how could you even defend this trash? Do you understand how those clickbait websites operate at all? They don't care about accuracy, getting things right, or giving credit - they just churn out hundreds of articles to get clicks. Contacting them does nothing.

And if all of that doesn't convince you... here's an almost copy-pasted article from the same website by a different "author" from 1 year ago in which they reuse much of the same false information, including the "Red Shirt" reference you pointed out: https://www.thegamer.com/awesome-things-you-didnt-know-about-goldeneye/ - and even that article has GE:S content they just took off of Google.

Don't use the Steam server browser, use the one in GE:S. Make sure that "Check map list" is unchecked.

I am having some issues with installing the game, i get told that no servers are available for source sdk base 2007 even though i have tried reconfiguring servers. Is there a way to download without steam, the game itself is installed and steam is working, its just the sdk im having issues with.

Right, because "Joe write a story on your lunch break" wasn't harshly condescending at all.  It is not acceptable unless the author has shown ill-willed intent.  This looks like a guy who loves the same game we all do, was happy to share, and missed the mark on some things.

If you believe you have legitimate grievances (for example getting credited for images), contact the author, and then snag on him if he fails to provide an update.
Instead, you would rather leave the false items out there for others to read and believe in favor of just ragging on him here?  You know you have the ability to get the article updated and you are intentionally ignoring it, even though it would benefit others too, so I have to ask again how exactly is what is happening here more productive than just contacting him?
He'll also be more careful in the future, and you will have solved future problems too.

There's nothing dramatic about choosing a scenario in which all people win vs. one in which literally no one wins.

Eh... Don't you think you're being a tad bit dramatic? We're not "joining some bandwagon meant to mercilessly rip his soul apart for no reason." It was a crap article, so people called it a crap article. Nuff said.
