they sure are milking the heck out of this game

Yup. Even the biggest Gearbox apologists basically shit all over these headhunter packs. There's so little content they can just as easily add them in a patch and you would never notice.

Thanks for making us want to dig our ear drums out with a fork every year.

We get it. Someone tied you down and forced you to listen to his keynotes A Clockwork Orange style.

Customer wise, they are cutting their own throat. It boggles the mind at how epically ****** SOE can be, at least half their customers use 32 bit OS. Only a minority computer professionals and gamers use 64 bit.

Can you prove any of what you just said?

Kind of silly if jump is an "unlock," that's pretty lol. Garret could mantle and jump in 1998 for crying out loud.

You misread me. They completely removed jumping. Stealth is an ability you unlock.

Supposedly they removed jumping and stealth is a separate unlockable ability. The fuck?

The guy had an addiction and died because of it leaving behind three little kids. That's pretty goddamn selfish and shouldn't be celebrated. Normal people look at him as another cautionary tale of how not to live your life. Idiots see actors as gods for them to worship, even after dying of a drug overdose.

Who is celebrating? I don't see anyone speaking up about wanting to emulate his actions. I think normal people appreciate his talents and see him as the great actor that he was. You do not have to be a celebrity worshipper to appreciate and mourn the passing of a talented person. On the other hand you have people who get up on their moral high-horse, like you, and focus only on the mistakes he made and how weak willed he was (thus making yourself sound so 'superior').

We all know that hard drugs are bad, addiction is bad, and overdosing is bad, so there's no cautionary tale that we have not already learned a long time ago. There's no point on fixating on the things that matter least when remembering a person's life.

We may have got our wish on the remake front:

http://interceptor-entertainment.com/site/portfolio/duke-nukem-3d-reloaded/

"... Duke Nukem 3D: Reloaded an Unreal Engine 3 powered remake of the 1996 FPS classic, Duke Nukem 3D. "

Pretty please. Please don't eff it up... Not sure about "vehicular sequences. :X

They moved on from Reloaded years ago after a falling out with Gearbox when they read the fine print in their bullshit license. Gearbox will not allow anyone else to release new Duke Nukem FPS games. Ever. Supposedly Interceptor is about to reveal Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction, a top down "ARPG" like game.

I'd rather have a remake of the original Duke 3D from those guys that remade Rise of The Triad.

But the assholes at Gearbox reneged on that deal.

EDIT:
and they say this means the next Duke Nukem game will be announced at that time by Interceptor Entertainment

WOOT! FUCK YEAH!

I hope it is a reamake and not a new game!!!

You know, I've never heard anything good about the RoTT remake. I remember when it came out there were several complaints about crap graphics, crap performance that was unbelievably bad for the crap graphics you had, crap optimization that caused several glitches and crashes, crap weapons, and crap checkpoint save system rather than the "save anywhere" one so many people say is superior (and since most times I see Checkpoint Save and Consolitis in the same sentence so often, seeing it not complained about in a PC game at this point would nearly blow my mind).
So, is it really not so bad as I've read, or is it a case of rose tinted glasses forgiving the games deficiencies?

Really?
The complaints that I heard that the checkpoint system sucks, the performance of the game is bad and some of the of the weapons, like pistols or machine guns, don't have much meat behind them.
Rocket launchers etc. on the other hand are really fun to use and the fast pace of the game makes it really fun game over all.

I waited after several months of patching and bought ROTT on sale. The checkpoint issues and poor optimization are no longer present. Right now it's a fairly decent old school inspired FPS. My only complaint is the same as when the original came out. Levels are simplistic and modular looking. There's very little variation in bad guys.

The only thing they can really do is a remake of Duke Nukem 1 and 2, to which Apogee still owns the rights. I sincerely doubt they went crawling back to Gearbox to continue a Duke 3D remake when they just released ROTT.

Angry Joe is fun only to watch his gradual realization everything is a lie and he's now more jaded and cynical than ever before. The treatment he got from Geoff Keighley opened his eyes and A:CM pushed him over the edge.

This still cracks me up because they totally nailed the concept of Hotline Miami: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EFqasQ6sX7Y

Hope to see more live action skits after the sequel comes out.

This is unconfirmed, and there is no explanation of why this would be in crazy buttocks on a train's possession.

What?


Try clicking the post on NeoGAF.

Anyway, it appears these shots are from 2011. Don't expect any kind of official reveal soon.

As the president said in his speech the other day (forced by the Snowden revelations), it's time to scale back.
And yet, it was all meaningless. Like he's going to scale back the degrees of searching from 3 people away from target of interest, to 2 people away from target of interest.
So?
And he's going to require someone get permission before spying on foreign leaders (its NOT a ban on it, like the headlines were claiming).
Again, so?

That speech was far more about pacifying the public than any meaningful changes.

Yeah, I don't have much hope that things will change in a meaningful way. But the first step in solving a problem is acknowledging it, which is more than what was happening before the speech.

You mean like how he acknowledged the IRS problem with a speech and did nothing? Or how he acknowledged the Benghazi problem with a speech and did nothing? Or how he acknowledged the Syria problem with a speech and did nothing? Oh his latest thing is going back to the old and tired blaming Fox News for all his problems. Sounds kinda familiar around these parts.

Face it, the guy is a failure in every possible way. Deflecting only shows how weak and desperate you are to hold onto crumbling liberal ideals that never worked in the first place. Bush sucked ass but I don't remember him crying all the time about the media.

Oh look liberals deflecting for Obama on Blue's News again. I AM SHOCKED.

B-b-but Bush! B-b-but Romney! B-b-but Republicans! Obama is President NOW. The Democrats still hold majority control of the government NOW. Stop being an apologist for the current disastrous administration by deflecting to another. Is a little honesty even possible for liberals?
