I'll try and make it tomorrow. Just got through kicking ass online I finally have the right settings so it's beyond playable now. I apologize to Goldeneye for thinking the controls suck. They just needed some refining and getting used to.
It pretty much is. You just log into Wifi, then choose Party Invite. The code is easily visible there. Besides literally showing you it when you log in, it's probably in the easiest spot in the wifi menu. From there you can choose Add Friend to add others or send invites and such.
Ouch. I played about 45 minutes or so online just now, and while fun, this game is going to take me a bit to get the hang of. Then again, FPS games in general via online multiplayer always seem seem to take a good bit of acclimation on my part before I go from being horrid to decent. I'm having no issues via the single player mode, but online multiplayer is a different story. Hopefully I can get myself up to snuff and join in on one the NW matches before long. Right now, I'd just be dead weight. Literally.
I feel like I'm better at The Conduit, but I don't know why. Still, it took me a little while too. Plus, the more levels you go, the better your add-ons get so you're likely fighting against people with a little bit better firepower or weapons available and such. But just keep playing, keep getting those points and moving up levels, and play us asap! I'm trying to work nights each day this week so I dunno when I'll be on in the evening next but I'll probably hop on around noon a few days this week. Keep an eye out!
I hear ya. Holy shitballs I sucked! Well, at least I now know how the map works (only see peeps when firing). After most of you left I totally ran shop in the Outpost stage. I had more kills than deaths, 11-7. I quit after that to leave it on a good note.
I'm actually not that great at The Conduit online, either. Of course, I kind of gave up on it pretty quick (perhaps too quickly?) due to the horrid online infrastructure and hackers running a muck. It's too early to tell how I'll fare playing GoldenEye 007 when and if I become fully accustomed to the online mode, but as with MoH:H2, CoD:WaW, & CoD:MW:R, my successfulness seems to depend on my mood at the time more than anything. Sometimes I can play and do nothing but die. Other times I can take the lead of whatever team I'm apart of. It's weird. I guess that's what makes online so interesting... It's never the same experience twice. Anyway, I will certainly keep an eye out and hope to join you soon!
Thanks for feeling my pain. It's good to know I'm not alone! I just know when I was playing, it seemed the same person kept picking me off like it was nothing. I'd shoot and shoot and shoot some more, but I just kept dying! Forty five minutes later and never made it past rank five. Looks like this game is going to take some time for me to work my way up the agent ladder.
With so many games to play, I haven't been hitting up GoldenEye multi that often. Usually I'll play for a half hour or so after I go through a single player mission (just got to the final section of the main game).
