    Not as cool as the Portal 2 ads which took up the whole sides and rear of the bus except for those front 3 side windows but still got a kick out of seeing:

    Sure this bus is big...but I've got something bigger"

    So I hear it'll have dedicated servers (unsupported, but available anyways).

    No problem bro! :toast:

    I totally agree with you.. I was disappointed in the weapons... but I really hope they fix them in the final game. :toast: If not then i hope mods will make it what it should be...

    Starcraft is by far the most played game in Korea. And Koreans play it far more than anyone else in the world. That's why it's on a Korean Air aircraft.

    @Mindweaver
    You can forget that. They won't be changing weapons for the final version as it's just too late to do that.

    Too late? That demo is over 9 months old.. We just got it late.. They should be able to fix that in a day... If they don't then I bet someone will. You know?

    I think I would be able to fit just the eye of the warrior on a wall in my study in the Skyrim poster.
    EPIC.

    I'm playing this on the 360. Good so far. VERY cheesey, just how a DN title should be!

    The graphics kinda remind me of FEAR or Prey (well it should). So is the game any good? I mean in technical terms, good AI and shooting mechanics ect.

    So far Metacritic for PC is showing DNF as a 76/100, about what I expected, we'll see as it lands in America and more reviews come out.

    A little higher would be nice, but 76% sounds reasonable.

    I do love the one-liners. For example, you can get Duke playing pinball, which of course has his brand all over it (huge ego, remember ;) ) and whenever Duke loses, he says in a really disappointed voice, "I have balls of fail :cry:". :roll:

    The Duke can also go up to a mirror and look at himself. You can then press E to "admire" and every time you do, Duke utters something hugely ego-centric and very funny.

    It plays in a very linear way and reminds me of Half-Life 2 in this respect, which I quite like. The style, atmosphere and execution is very different though, as you'd expect.

    I could imagine a movie being made of this game and if done well, would really work.
