February 11, 2014 will forever be a historic date within the-elite, for it is on that date when GoldenEye 007 speedrunner and workhorse extraordinaire completed Depot Dark License to Kill (DLTK) becoming the first man to beat Goldeneye’s 20 levels on all difficulties; Agent, Secret Agent, 00 Agent, License to Kill and Dark License to Kill. DLTK is a 007 mode in the game with all enemy settings maxed. This mode is absurdly difficult and is a premiere challenge in any video game; effectively requiring at least 10 headshots to kill any guard, whereas any shot fired at Bond will almost certainly kill him. Beating any level on DLTK can take dozens, if not hundreds of hours of attempts, strategizing and planning. Not to mention the standard License to Kill (LTK) mode is not much easier. Bozon’s full completion of every level on every category is a truly incredible gaming achievement.
Bozon’s journey began in 2006 when he joined the-elite, to speedrun Goldeneye’s normal modes. Later that year, he beat his first DLTK level, Statue. At the time, three levels, Streets, Train and Silo had not been completed by anyone; many believing they were impossible. By mid 2008, Bozon had completed 13 of 20 levels on DLTK. A huge milestone came in April 2013 when, after 330 hours of play, Bozon became the first person (and still the only) to ever beat Silo DLTK. Bozon rounded out his completed 20 by beating Streets, Jungle and Depot this year. His feat is a great testament to the passion typical of many great Goldeneye and Perfect Dark players at the elite, playing the game for over 8 years with dedication, desire and heart.
Bozon has made a playlist of his DLTK completions available here; a necessary watch if you are into extremely difficult video game challenges!
Bozon currently holds 11 of the 20 DLTK World Records, 6 LTK World Records, and 2 normal mode World Records.
Hi everyone. As you can see, the site has undergone some changes. I rebuilt the site from the ground up, but I attempted to preserve the feel of the existing site (ohh, that banner). The site is built on top of a more versatile blogging platform now, so hopefully we will get more content moving through the home page. I will be inviting users to sign up and become bloggers for the site – anyone that shows interest (and isn’t universally hated) can have blogging privileges, pretty much. Discussion for participation is going on here
Hopefully you are pleased to see that our link nest has been tidied into some simple CSS menus. In the process I pruned dead and defunct links, while adding a few obvious omissions. Discussion on the content of the site should be directed to the forums, here.
You will also notice we have some YouTube videos on the right sidebar. I actually wrote some code that pulls the RSS feed (which does not include the embed URL…) from the eliteWRVids YouTube account, so all we need to do to keep this updated is upload videos to that account. I recognize that this account isn’t an official the-elite.net account, but I’d like to discuss a) making it one, or b) establishing one.
On a final note, there is still some work to be done, and I will be appealing to the community to help us get the site where we’d all like it. For one, there is some work to be done for importing the old GreyMatter posts, which I’ve explained here. Also, I may hold a contest (with $ award) for creating a new banner for the site, if people show interest.
