37. Re: Duke Nukem Forever Demo Jun 3, 2011, 14:35 jimnms
I got the demo key for buying Borderlands GotY, but I also pre-ordered DN4. I got the email from the first access club telling me it was available just before midnight. I actually just finished playing DN3D using EDuke32 with the Hi-res pack yesterday, so that's still fresh in my mind.

The only humor in DN3D were the cheesy comments he'd say when starting a level/boss fight, killing an enemy or looking at certain objects. I didn't see as much of that in the demo, but it was so short there's no way to get any feel for what the full game is going to be like.

I definitely don't like the health regen (ego). I actually don't mind that you can only carry two weapons, I know Duke is a bad ass, but even back in Doom and Duke's day I thought it was stupid that you could carry dozens of weapons and ammo for each. I'm not sure what the Duke vision is for, all it did was turn my screen white. I guess it's some sort of night vision, but even in the dark cave parts it didn't help. Honestly though, it felt like they took another game and tacked on Duke stuff.

Is this a Steamworks game or is the demo just being pushed through Steam? I pre-ordered from Amazon, but I might cancel my pre-order and wait until a Steam sale, but like I said, the demo is way to short to get a feel for the actual game.
