    I don't care how long it gets delayed at this point its been forever anyway, if waiting a few more weeks means i don't have to wait months for a patch to fix things im all for it.

    Got a email of them about it showing a video and must say was kinda amusing to watch. Thing is i hope Gearbox finish it right as every game they have come out with has always been pretty dam lame.

    Well I have it pre-ordered, it gets here when it gets here. When I was watching the video I thought it was a joke, so I was laughing. But then:

    Lets pray it is. I'd buy this game if it's everything it's hyped up to be.


    Totally need a JC316 review on this one! I remember your Fallout review over on GPU.com :D

    You should reallly look at the Gearbox forums: http://gbxforums.gearboxsoftware.com/showthread.php?t=119037

    Some people are reallying lets say 'Throwing their toys out the pram' and are apparntly Cancelling their pre-orders...... How sad is that over a 'potential' month delay. And also those whining that Internation players would get it before them, if it truely is delayed.

    I used to be very enthusiastic about it back in 2001 when they showcased the new Duke with Unreal Engine 1.5 at that time. And it felt awesome. 10 years later, it's just another FPS game.

    Meh, no biggie. When a games getting this close to going gold, and it gets a small delay like that, it doesn't mean much. Just means that instead of making it a month ahead, they now have an extra month to patch some stuff before going gold. It's been a long wait, a month is worth some bug fixes.
