This doesn’t get any less surreal, does it?
Good job, games industry. Maybe for your next trick you can resurrect Deep Cover, eh? No?

Duke would never listen to such crap music.

I wish people would stop being so goddamn sensitive about this game.
I mean, so what if people call it sexist or puerile? No reason to get all defensive.

I’m far too mature to be interested in breasts.

Fortunately for you, there’s nothing in this game that remotely resembles human breasts.

Hey, did anybody else notice that it took ’til after the Rapture for Duke Nukem: Forever to be released?
02/06/2011 at 22:39
I’m curious… enough to hope a friend buys it so I can watch it played, anyway. My interest is mostly historical. Not really my kind of game otherwise.

I still haven’t finished Manhattan Project. Damn I need to catch up.

Hey Leo. Seems like a good interview, just started watching. I’ll repeat the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T8PAHfqhVec

Can someone play this for me and then tell me if I liked it or not, ta.

That’s what RPS is usually there for. ;)

Considering RPS’s love of musical references I will be disappointed if the Wot I Think isn’t called Brand New You’re Retro.

Actually, having read a bit about the demo, I’m putting my money on That Joke Isn’t Funny Anymore…
02/06/2011 at 23:21
i want it to be delayed. one last time. please!

Honestly I’d would be amusing if the game took more stabs at Duke’s own character, a relic from the 90s, who was already a parody of pop culture in a modern video game.
But no, hey look – tits!

I hope this one has Colossal Cave adventure in it.
We could build up to a utopia where all FPS games have secret text-adventure levels.

“It’s big innovation was simulating plane over plane maps using hidden teleporting, a few tricks with mirrored enemy placement and clever map design.”
Thats selling it a bit short actually, I’d say its main innovation was the interactivity within the maps that made it stand out at the time (as was mentioned), plus portions that could be blown up whatnot. Yes it may not seem like much now but working mirrors (setting those up in the level editor was an eye opener as to how they worked them) and useable/smashable toilets and sinks and so on were quite something.

Re the soundtrack there, what rap wanker is that who has purloined ‘The Stroke’ by Billy Squiers ?
03/06/2011 at 11:11
I feel dirty for saying it. But I’m excited.

“You’re saying you only buy games that have good reviews? You only buy games that have demos? So you’re basically a mong..?”
Where did I say I only buy games that have good reviews or demos? I didn’t. I said that as well as some people dismissing the game immediately and blindly, there will also be those who will embrace the game, immediately and blindly. I think your reading comprehension has failed you here, and you seem to have the wrong impression of what I was saying.
Also, ‘mong’? Really? Is that called for Leelad? RPS tries to NOT be like the rest of the internet… RPS is usually a place where we try to not bandy around insults and disparaging comments. I’ll forgive you this once, as I understand that your father, being the pitiful drunken waste of a man that he was, failed to beat the right senses into you, and that your mother was too busy dealing with her ‘clients’ to show you any love or to give you any sort of upbringing. So I understand that you probably have some emotional issues that you’re looking to work out.
“While I respect the opinions of game critics/reviewers/TB opinions are all they can offer.”
Not buying a game on Day 1 doesn’t mean I base all of my purchases on Critics/Reviewers etc. There’s also my friends, and word of mouth. Wait until the game has been released, and see what everyone is saying about it. Critics/Reviewers opinions are part of the whole when it comes to judging a game and whether it’s worthy of purchase. Not the whole, just a part.
It seems you just wanted to insult me here though, and make some insinuations. Surely you can’t truly be that dense as to assume that Critics/Reviewers are the only ones whose opinions matter, or that was what I was saying. Or is this the Fetal Alchohol Syndrome making itself known?
“Tell you what might be best if you plan on sticking to your “i’m too grown up for obvious OTT testosterone tit games” would be only to ever read/listen too reviews by yahtzee you can then be sure that you won’t have to buy another game again! Super!”
Again, you are missing my point… which is that there will be one set of people who go “Boo! Boobies! I’m not buying this game”, and there will be another set of people who go “Yay! Boobies! I’m buying this game”. Seriously, can you only read to an 8 year olds level or something? Or are you just purposefully and maliciously misinterpreting what I was saying?
Anyway… I’ll leave you with the knowledge that, although this has been fun, we’ll never do it again. You’re the second person I’m going to block/ignore, after FLBR. That’s quite the honour you know. I hope it keeps you warm at night. Peace.

Gameplay looks good, really good in fact, but I’m still not convinced about the whole tits and jizz are funny angle… I take my porn very seriously you see.
Hope they release the demo for people who haven’t made up their minds yet at some point…
