Hey, I'm Russ. I'm from Blackpool, Lancashire, United Kingdom.

I first received a N64 for my 12th Birthday, back in 1997. I've had another 2 N64 consoles since, one back in 2013 and my most recent one (thanks to this website) since August 9, 2022.

The love affair with GoldenEye didn't happen immediately - in fact, the first half dozen of games I owned for the N64 weren't even GoldenEye 007 itself. I'd played it, because my buddies from school, Crispy and Greg both owned copies of it and I'd play it round their houses. It was Greg who taught me how to play.

How I happened upon owning my own copy of the game is slightly more interesting. My Mum played the National Lottery on a weekly basis and on one fateful night, she won by matching 4 numbers, which bagged her £81, She practically split this 4 ways, so £20 for me, £20 for my sister, £20 for her and £20 for my Grandad and with my share, I bought a pre-owned copy of GoldenEye 007 from a place called Ca$h Converters and the rest, as they say, is history!

It's a shame that the existence of a wonderful place such as this didn't become known to me until this year, because had I known, I'd have joined far sooner. This game and I are actually more intertwined than you can imagine. We share a birthday. The game's Japanese release date is August 23, 1997 and my birthday is August 23, 1985. I consider 23 to be my favourite and lucky number, hence its place in my username.

Since joining The Elite, I enjoy watching other people's speedrunning videos and taking mental notes on techniques, in order to save time on my own playthroughs. Some members of the community here have been extremely helpful and giving of their knowledge and it's felt very embracing and welcoming.

Aside from the game, I am also an avid James Bond fan. I don't play this game just because it may be the GREATEST video game of all-time and I want to be the absolute best there is. That's never gonna happen, nor is it a realistic goal. I play this game because I actually like James Bond and am fully immersed in the World of 007. I've seen all of the movies and even though I consider Goldfinger to my my favourite all-time James Bond movie, my favourite incarnation of James Bond is Timothy Dalton. I think his two movies are fantastic and it's a damn shame the franchise got wrapped up in legal mumbo-jumbo for all those years that robbed the fandom of a third Dalton movie. However, that being said, without it, the GoldenEye movie itself wouldn't have been what it was and as such, neither would the game!
