We typically laud Rare’s unbelievable library of video games on the N64, and whereas the main focus has just lately been on its seminal film tie-in shooter GoldenEye 007 over the previous week, we wish to flip your consideration to Perfect Dark for only a few minutes. Footage of one of many recreation’s minimize options from E3 1999 has been shared on-line.
Perfect Head mode was supposed to make use of photographs imported from the Game Boy Camera by way of the Transfer Pak. This would will let you pop your face — albeit slightly extra polygonal than in actual life — onto the heads of guards. The function was ultimately minimize from the sport as a consequence of tech points, but it surely was proven off throughout E3 1999 (thanks, Time Extension!).
Twitter consumer @Musical1250 shared a brief clip of what this know-how regarded like. We’ve seen screenshots of the mode earlier than, however this is likely one of the first occasions we have truly seen it in motion!
It’s slightly uncanny, is not it? Well, if we had been truly N64 character fashions in actual life that’s. Maybe. Still, it is fairly spectacular, and we’d’ve liked to have seen it make the minimize, however that is online game improvement, of us!
For a greater look, Hard4Games has a one-hour video masking a bunch of recent footage from that very same E3 present. You can edit the picture in-game by cropping it and adjusting the lighting, and likewise change the positioning of the picture on the face. It’s… attention-grabbing. Perhaps we may’ve used it to scare our pals, as an alternative.
