    could you take a break from trolling for 24 hours? I know you're upset the miami heat lost but there's no point taking that out on everyone else.

    Ahh... It's good to play duke again after 10 + years. Game is great fun so far - only been playing for about a hour, but it's a blast. The graphics are good enough, but it's Duke, it's supposed to be crude, rough and downright nasty, and I love it!

    Multiplayer is actually relatively entertaining. The gameplay needs polishing. It took me a while to fix the mouse sensitivity and such.

    HAH - so Duke made the 10 o'clock news here in Houston. Warning parents how horrible the game was.

    I just had to laugh..... "And, the game shows picking a woman up over his shoulder and hitting her back side .... "

    There is a saying that dream car when your younger that you should never drive it as it will spoil all those thoughts you had. For example those who had a picture up of a Lamborghini. The poster rocked like hell but to use one sucked balls and ended up not being so great after all.

    I'm glad the Heat lost. Miami has the WORST fly-by-night fans in the nation. I wish I was still down there just so I could wear a Mavericks tee. I'm a troll in the real world too. :D

    Wish I could have picked up my game yesterday, but had to work on my truck some more, guess I will have to pick it up tonight.

    He was posting fact, not trolling, the bolded section is trolling.

    As much as a disappointment this game is, I am still enjoying it a bit more than expected.

    I don't think it's possible for a game that everyone said would never see shelf life to be a disappointment. Only Duke could crawl out of a grave that big. I just hope it sells well enough even being as mediocre as it is, to warrant a modern Duke done by Gearbox.

    Nope, pretty sure if I got to bang liz hurley now it would be better than the thoughts I had of doing her back when.

    The game is a bit like marmite, some love it some hate it. though my view is not nostalgic, for a game in this day in age, duke nukem aside it is not upto today's standards in a lot of ways.

    Let's take a nostalgic trip back to 2001.

    We had the Playstation, Nintendo 64, and were still removing the fetid taste of Windows ME from our mouth.

    Looking back, what still exists today? Windows xp debuted in late 2001, and it still clings to life. All other software with the same name as 2001 has gone through multiple revisions since then, and would hardly be recognizable with the new features, UI, and other improvements. Hardware is a fun joke. My calculator can best some of the PCs from 2001, and the amount of change in some hardware (video cards specifically) is absolutely absurd.

    Duke was originally developed for 2001, and that fact shines through. Remove the somewhat relevant situational jokes (making fun of Halo, really?), and you've got a standard shooter.

    If I were to compare Painkiller to Duke there would be a severe discrepancy. Painkiller was released several years ago, but features the same brand of insane violence (shrink gun ~= lightning shuriken gun). Both do what they can graphically, but aren't exactly breaking any records. Both share the mantle of non-realistic shooters, and are genuinely fun in small doses. The difference is I keep coming back to Painkiller. Duke is so dishwater mediocre that it's hard to see coming back in five years, and this is even with the nostalgia blinders pushed firmly onto my face.


    ~Sigh~

    Just escaping development Hell is not enough. With this poor of a showing I would have a hard time seeing a new (and presumably better due to a coherent vision) game from Gearbox featuring the Duke. Some times nostalgia poisons our thinking, and those not around with Duke in the day will likely see through the blandness of this game and question what is so special. Not all of this crap falls to Gearbox, but they will likely take the flack for releasing "an unpolished game" because they couldn't reasonably reconcile design choices from a decade ago with a more modern set of design tools.

    Looks like the Duke Nukem PR team is pissed at all the crappy reviews:

    http://arstechnica.com/gaming/news/...to-punish-sites-that-run-negative-reviews.ars


    U Mad Duke Nukem?

    Next time, dont take 12 years to come out with a game that cant compete with the hype and anyother game on the market.

    And, yes I have played the game and it's definately one I would easily like to forget. The idea/concept is there but it's laking in excecution. And again, the linearity of the game makes you feel stupid, the game was made for 18+(with all the boobies) but they put bread crumbs down like your 5. It's just insultingly boring.

    I'd like to see a free play option rather than a multiplayer. One where I can pay to see a dirty movie and pay strippers to shake their tail feathers and then shoot them.

    Is what comment about this thread? What are you even talking about? :rolleyes:

    When I pick my game up tonight I'll snap some pics of it all with my digital camera if they aren't posted up by then. Now I just got to find a place to set the Duke bust...

    You can dream but that will never happen. You can't take a turd and write Duke Nukem on it and expect it to become a classic.
    I'm sure DNF is good for some but it has to be great for everyone to be a classic. ANd for some reason i just can't see DNF as such.

    You must not know what a cult classic is. Like people have been saying, compare Duke to a B-Movie, I personally feel since a ton of his one liners are from Ash from Evil Dead / Army of Darkness. Those movies are cult classics, they aren't the best movies out there, they are cheesy, but they are great, and they have a big fan base despite all of that.

    Infact, some cult classics become so because they are so bad. You are confusing Classic, and Cult Classic. A "classic" is something everyone (or most) love.

    Original was and still is a classic. DNF certainly isn't.

    Theres no argument there, the original was a Classic, because a ton of people loved that game. That still has no bearing on Cult Classic. As I already explained, they are 2 different things.
