    Sure steam is good but some things just have be hard copy's and for me this is one if steam is forced or not. I hope gogamer get there site back up soon as they are known to have hard copys cheaper. Last one i had seen on there the same version of Shogun 2 was $13 cheaper. Yet again you were better off buying a hard copy as you can get a limited edition for what steam were charging.

    Then i don't like putting all my eggs into one basket either lol.

    It seems there is now another Pre-order bonus out there from EVGA. You get a GTX 560 and some other goodies, not as many Duke goodies as the BSE, but it's got some of the samethings, and you also get a belt buckle which is not offered anywhere else. Price is $245, and the OP is updated with a link to pre-order it.

    Quite frankly i was more impressed by this video:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iPX_y7wP_ko

    ...back in 2001. Current Duke graphics look too Prey-ish (everything looks glossy) which i don't like for some reason.
    The graphics used in 2001 trailer was highly modified UT99 engine which looks amazing even for today if you ask me. I mean just look at the scene where it shows that general with cigare. Back in 2001 i was looking for my jaw on the ground when i seen this. Also the blood looked way better back then. Something Unreal 1.x engine did very well. We'll see. I'll certainly check it out though. Maybe it'll be fun anyway.

    I couldn't agree with you more. I wish....really wish they would've finished the 2001 version of Duke and released it. It looked like it would've been a lot of fun. Also I can't help but recognize that the desert eagle looking kinda pistol he has when he's in that mineshaft cart looks almost exactly how the deagle used to look like in Counter-Strike (don't remember which version, 1.3 1.4 1.5?).
    I just hope that DNF will be as fun as all of the previous DNF projects that should've been released many years ago as the one that we're going to see in a few weeks :D

    OP updated to highlight that it is a Steamworks game. Also OnLive has joined the Pre-Orders, you get a free console with Pre-Order.

    And here's some multiplayer screens.

    Notice the chart in the background

    Also it sounds like some DLC involving Duke Singing is in the works, lets hope it's got a good amount of content and not a huge price.

    And this is for all the doubters from the voice actor of Duke

    Well I don't think human boobs are allowed, but a tri-boobed alien thats as tall as a building, I'm not sure, if a mod sees this they can tell me, then I'll link. Till then, just go to the DNF site and watch it.

    Only if you pre-ordered the game from a digital seller like Steam or Direct2Drive.

    I think those of us who have pre-ordered from like let's say Gamestop won't be affected by this minor inconvenience :D
