Duke Nukem Forever Demo Today

The 2K Games Forums have word that the playable demo for Duke Nukem Forever should now be available on Xbox 360 for all Xbox LIVE Gold members, and should be released for all Steam owners around noon eastern time today: "As you all know, last week, after 15 long years, against all odds, Duke Nukem Forever launched. Today we are giving people the chance to try the game for themselves. The Duke Nukem Forever demo will go live on Xbox 360 at 2 AM PDT and on Steam at 9 AM PDT. (We are currently working with Sony to get the demo out as soon as possible too.) If you haven't played DNF yet, now is your chance to try out part of gaming history and have some big fun Duke style -- check it out and tell us what YOU think." Thanks Voodoo Extreme.

Yep. SOF2 had the ability to create random missions. It used templates of areas, tossed in randomly placed groups of enemies (in random numbers) and off you went.

Granted the mission types were generic, "Get item from here, go to extraction point." or "Escape from the prison camp and get to extraction point." But such is the nature of randomly generated stuff, they have to have a basic framework.

Let me see if I can't find some info on it.

Edit: Templates isn't really the right term. It wasn't one set of levels that just had randomly placed enemies. I mean more, sections of map strung together in different orders, you'd see repetition in the buildings, but they'd be in different locations, etc.
