A Resurrection of Many Years in a Few Hours

July 3rd, 2006 at 12:42pm by Matthijs

I never thought it could be this much fun again. I never thought I could actually resist it more than one hour. I never thought I could gain some of the skills I used to have. It all happened yesterday, when 18 year-old Swedish Elitist Patrik Nilsson (ranked as 37th currently on the GoldenEye Rankings) visited me. Patrik was on a trip through The Netherlands and stayed in a hotel very close to your Flying Dutchman’s residence.

He arrived by bus around 10:45 AM and left five hours later. We first had a chat and some good laughs in the backyard. Patrik showed me his insane DDR skills by playing Stepmania on his laptop. He told me he’s ranked in the top 10 for Swedish DDR players, something I, judging from what I saw, clearly believe. After seeing too many arrows, we entered my private penthouse aka my room. After hooking up everything, we took our seat and started the slaughtering. On first instantion my VCR didn’t work, later on we fixed it and taped some GoldenEye multiplayer deathmatches which I will try to put online. It was Swedish devilish 1.2 versus Dutch classic 1.1. We both hadn’t played the game in ages, but gained the touch pretty quickly. Neither Patrik or me was inferior, we were pretty much equal to each other. The longer we played, the more I started to realize that this game still is incredible to say the least. It all game, uhm came back to me.

Various hilarious moments occurred on my telly, with Patrik playing as Boris and me as the helicopter pilot. The settings were LTK, pistols and matches up to 10 points. Well…Patrik actually didn’t need any pistols to sent my Dutch soul into oblivion. In the 3,5 hours we played, he managed to slap me down four frustrating times. Talking about ”Ten Ham-humiliating” here:D! The level I always used to unbeatable at, Complex, still was my fortress. Out of the 5 matches on Complex, there was total Dutch domination. Lots of matches ended up in a difference by the smallest margin. Time flies when having fun and before we got the hang of it, Patrik had to leave.

To sum up Patrik’s visit: a great guy to meet and someone with great gaming skills, resulting in really exciting and intense deathmatches. I will post all the pictures in the GoldenEye forum.

Thank you for reading, it was a pleasure to come back once more at this reliable territory…

    I would like to show my appreciation to you for bailing me out of this type of challenge. Because of looking out through the the web and seeing opinions that were not productive, I figured my entire life was done. Living minus the answers to the issues you’ve resolved as a result of your entire report is a serious case, as well as those that might have negatively affected my career if I had not discovered your website. Your primary talents and kindness in taking care of all things was valuable. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I had not come upon such a subject like this. I can also now relish my future. Thanks so much for the reliable and result oriented guide. I will not hesitate to refer your web page to anyone who requires care about this situation.
