I loved the previous Duke games and I will obviously give this a go when it comes out. However I can't help but feel like it can't possibly live up to its own legend now. Here's hoping I will be proven wrong....

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Yeah, it's a big gamble. Duke Nukem thrived on imitating the popular action/adventure movies of the 80's/early 90's. Cinema has changed, of course. So it's a wonder what sort of iconic 'easter eggs' would be hidden in a modern Duke game.

How old was everyone when they played Duke for the first time?

I thought i was a little young to be playing it at 13 when it came out on the PC, but i see a lot of younger heretics posting here.

I guess with the content of things like GTA they won't have nearly as many problems with controversy as they did with duke 3d.

I was around 8 or 9 when I first played it. My parents were pretty awesome when it came to video games or movies. Could play whatever I wanted no matter how adult it was.

Vaz and NoiseMarine, both of you knock it off. Further insults will result in infractions. Vaz there was no call for your original comment as Lord of the Night is just as welcome to express his opinion as anyone. NoiseMarine, that comment wasn't even directed at you so there was no call for you to be jumping in like that. You are both warned.

I believe the insults were quotes,
maybe next time add some quote tags to them to save confusion guys


Just saw this on IGN
Quote:
At the conclusion of the trailer, a woman remarks to Duke that his new adventure looks great. "Yeah, but after twelve f---ing years, it should be," he responds

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

What are you? Some bottom-feeding scum-sucking algae eater?

Yeah, these are Duke3d quotes, just having fun here.

Writer of crappy fics, I hope you might derive some enjoyment from them.

Sorry, Wraithlord. It's cult. You can't stop cult.

Well actually you can, and its not terribly hard to do either. Its just not something worth doing, at least not this time anyway.

On that note though, I leave this post with the following declaration: "I have balls of steel."

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?
