Duke Nukem Forever… what it could have been.

Stop fucking complaining… about regenerating health, weapon limits, no mighty foot. You still get to visit strip joints, crack one liners and piss in toilets. The humour was what made Duke 3D so memorable, not those mid nineties FPS conventions that were in every game. Enjoy DNF for what it is.

What are you waiting for? Christmas?

    It really is horrible. Just awful.

    If it came out in 2000 it would be ok. 2005, crapware. 2011. I don’t know man. It is what it is … a complete and utter waste.

    I think your 1998 comment is spot on. If it had come out in 1998 as it did today, it would be the most epic jaw-dropping game of all time.

    But, um, it didn’t.

    Funny things, these “opinions”. Not everyone has the same ones about the same things, no one’s is wrong, and a person isn’t a “fanboy” just for disagreeing with your opinion.

    Time to kick ass and chew bubble gum…and Im all out of gum!

    I remember DNF when it was a sidescrolling commander keen adventure. BLOOD 4 eva

    dnf = duke nukem, sorry

    Death_to_Dude

    Come get some!

    I haven’t played DNF yet, but everything else aside, I doubt the old Duke Nukem style translates well into 2011. Duke was such a post-80s thing and 1998 would’ve been the last appropriate time. Nowadays, nobody buys such hyper-badassery anymore; all characters today need to have a tragic past and less firepower, more weltschmertz.

    Death_to_Dude

    Damn… I’m looking good!

    Great game.
    True to its roots.
    Well made, polished, stable, attractive, gripping, challenging and full of suprises.

    Problem is all the hype.

    I enjoy it. Thats all I care about.

    I don’t know where all the whiny bitches are coming from, but DNF is lots of fun. Isn’t that the point of a game? I’m thoroughly enjoying it.

    Death_to_Dude

    Eat shit and die.

    Death_to_Dude

    Get that crap outta here!

    I read so many harsh reviews that I was disappointed, since I was waiting to pirate it.

    In a few months I might feel differently.

    geeze you must have like the internet or something.

    way to enable stereotypes, holmes

    I’ll rip your head off and shit down your neck.

    Death_to_Dude

    Hmm, that’s one “Doomed” Space Marine

    Death_to_Dude

    Hmm, I needed that!

    shut up, duke 3d had basically no humor, just a bunch, a couple actually, of punchlines stolen from movies. The game was great for its gameplay and level design. Forever doesn’t try to improve the old formula, it rejects it completely for a stupid slow corridor experience.

    ehrgeiz

    Hey guess what, every modern shooter is a fucking slow corridor experience.

    anadin

    I think I played a different game to this guy.

    Buying it
    Getting drunk
    Pretending it’s 1998 and I’m
    going to party like it’s 1999 !!!

    Shake it baby !!

    Death_to_Dude

    I should have known those alien maggots booby-trapped the sub.

    Death_to_Dude

    Heh, heh, heh… what a mess!

    Death_to_Dude

    It’s time to abort your whole freaking species!

    red7paulbrennan

    Hey wondering why nobody is talking about Zero Hour. I played it first then 3d, i thought 3d sucked but Zero Hour was great. Forever looks like a good rental probably pick it up this weekend.

    Death_to_Dude

    Holy cow, Holy shit!

    juanpastation

    hail to the king, bitch!!!
    duke is awesome and it was worth the wait. it’s not the same, yet it’s not different. that’s good.

    Death_to_Dude

    Guess again, freakshow. I’m coming back to town, and the last thing that’s gonna go through your mind before you die… is my size- 13 boot!

    Death_to_Dude

    Get back to work, you slacker!

    Death_to_Dude

    Yeah, piece of cake!

    dre

    fail to the king baby. seriously, very disappointed. game is WAAY too short, half the levels are boring shit puzzle crap you have to do. NO JETPACK. WTF??
    yeah the graphics are ok, but the gameplay wasn’t that great to be honest. the “jokes” as some call it are on a level of a mentally handicapped 12 year old. can’t kill friendlies or strippers either. just fucking lame.

    Death_to_Dude

    That’s gonna leave a mark!
