Not sure on the release date since it's a US company, but oh well, it's almost here!
You missed one out, bud.
If an uber post like this doesn't "get it", then I don't know what does.
just to warn you americans.... that game's level of awesomeness can't be summed up in words.
Power Armour is for pussies!
Probably a different publisher and either a separate contract (one publisher agreed to do it only if they are five days in advance of everyone else) or previous commitment (like publishing a different title) required production to be pushed back.
I want to ask something to HookeyStreet or anyone else that has played this game on 360. Have you seen any performance issues so far? I was planing to get this game, but I don't know if it's a better buy than Dead Space or Dante's Inferno. Please comment. \m/
Damn those framerate slowdowns! We need a patch, now!
Maybe it'll get here in 10 years or so.
Haha very funny. Not that long, but I bet it hits long after I've finished the game.
Previous slowdowns were very short and didn't hit in the wrong places. However, these ones lasted ages and happened while Duke was being attacked by hords of aliens outside. Made it kinda hard to fight back!
Yup, I would expect no less from a game worked on by multiple developers, writers, producers, artists and programmers over more than a decade. I read some article today on it. The author kept repeating how 2K never said the game would be great.. or even good for that matter but they did state that it would indeed be launched! The fact that I can put a Duke Nukem Forever DVD in my computer and have some sort of graphics on my screen is good enough for me. This isn't a game, it's campy nostalgia. Their support service should be nothing more than an automated phone message or email with Duke himself giving a few kind words for asking for support in the first place.
Sounds like a nasty alien apendage. Might need to hit up the doc, yo.
Duke has lots of nastalgia.
Considering where he decides to defecate, I'm not surprised. And we all know HE needs to go see the doc, for sure.
Just like this guy.
Too many 'roids methinks.
Eurogamer gave the 360 version a 3/10, but insisted they had heard the PC Version was much better.
I am a lot more excited about Serious Sam, i liked the non comic graphics. It looks beautifully ugly
All of the console reviews I have seen are horrible. The PC reviews seems to be around 7/10, which is nice to see.
That's odd, as it's a console port, isn't it? Perhaps it just runs more smoothly on PCs? One review complained about 45 second load times all the time. However, on my PC, it's no more than 10-15s.
Apart from the annoying intermittent frame rate issues, which I expect to see addressed with a patch, it runs fine.
Apparently the console versions have horrible performance issues, some of which render the game borderline unplayable.
Can somebody explain to me why this game took 12 years to develop?
Did it get cancelled and renewed or something?
Yeah...yeah...yeah...the reviews are not that hot, but my wife bought me the 'dukes package' edition (pc version) at GameStop for Fathers Day. I just hope i don't get the CD and then have to download it, that'd be über gay.
I for one, am a Duke fan. I've been playing Duke since I was 12 in 1997. I use to build maps, make mode, edit the cvars, etc...it was overall fun as hell. I don't care about the graphics, to me its more of a guilty pleasure for me to play it and these bias reviews are obviously not Duke fans. As Duke would say to the negative reviews:
The game is just average. You don't have to be a Duke hater to aknowledge that.
If you were American I would have you deported.
WHAT!!!! It's great fun. I just used a can of Baked Beans for cover.....you don't find that kind of shit in ANY other game!
