SHOWNOTES: 4/20 may have elapsed, but Collateral Gaming isn't done celebrating! This year, we decided to kick it old school and get super baked to play the classic 1997 first-person shooter based on the Pierce Brosnan Bond film: GoldenEye 007! Rest assured, we spent our 4/20 holiday shooting and slapping each other on original hardware! Joined by Collateral Cinema co-host Beau, we provide our take on this N64 gem as not only a massively influential game for the FPS genre, but as a stoner game. If you're into it, stay tuned for our upcoming bad game review of Anthem and the rest of this season!
