Well... it LOOKS good to me. But going by this latest trailer doesn't mean all that much. We'll see how it rates post launch.

The project has been "on hold" presumed cancelled for ages owing to Forever and whatever other legal reasons.

That's the project I first referred to that Gearbox reneged on. Gave them permission, then took it away. Then they made ROTT.

So... either the announcement is going to be Reloaded has been taken off hold...

OR

If the message on the Duke4.net forums is correct... then the announcement will be about a top-down action RPG.

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!!!

Why Microsoft thought people were going to switch to touch screens is absurd. Sure many laptops are coming out with them, but still most of us would much rather use a mouse and keyboard with a familiar interface.

That (Desktop users to buy touch screen monitors) wasn't quite their objective.

The objective was to have a familiar interface to their mobile products so you would want to go buy a Windows Phone and a Windows Tablet (Since Microsoft thinks live tiles are so awesome)... AND to get you to use / rely on the Microsoft App Store.

Unfortunately for Microsoft... most people think the live tiles and flat look is fugly as sin, and don't want anything to do with them. (Which is why they buy IOS or Android devices)

The still haven't gotten it though their thick skulls that most people not only want the Start menu back... but they also want Aero glass back too. (Complete Windows 7 UI with Windows 8 under the hood features / improvements)

... and Windows 9 won't get us there, either.

The gap between the GPU performance of the Xbox One and PS4 isn't sufficient, on its own, to explain why the PS4 is pushing 60 FPS while the Xbox One can't manage much above 30 FPS.

So, 50% more shader units and compute units doesn't explain it?

And while the article does claim that they suspect that it may have something to do with difficulty coding for XBone's SRAM... it's obvious that the buffer is way too small compared to full access to GDDR5.

I'm still waiting for the $#@^&%#! IOS version.

Huh? Huh

When they were developing the first one, they said they would be making an IOS version after release.

I bought the windows version and stopped at level 3 because I didn't want to spoil what I think is a perfect game for my iPad and traveling.

What universe?

I think he means Star Wars.

Tomb Raider hits 60fps on PS4 but only 30fps on Xbox One - report

Wow... there's even a fanboy in their comments that claims its because the xbone is designed for multi-tasking.

How can one completely ignore the fact that the hardware in the PS4 is superior???

50% more GPU compute units and shaders... GDDR5... and apparently 10% of the xbone's GPU is used for kinect.

While multi-tasking would be another factor... it's fricken obvious that the xbone is outclassed hardware-wise.

News Comments > Broken Age Part 1 For Backers Next Week
20. Re: Broken Age Part 1 For Backers Next Week Jan 12, 2014, 10:37 wtf_man
 
That's the 2nd revision. The original release was supposed to be October 2012.

The 1st delay to Spring 2013 was understandable since he got over funded and the game scope grew.

Spring 2013 came and the game wasn't even half done. Later he ran out of money.

THAT means he got way too ambitious for the funds he was given. The scope of the game was way over budget. THAT is mismanagement.

The fact that he elected to try to make up for it by using his own funds to complete half a game... In order to raise more to finish it, is irrelevant and shows he is willing to gamble.

Who the heck is going to buy a half game that wasn't a backer in the first place?

So, I guess I disagree with his decision. He should have cut the scope appropriately, IMO.

I don't really understand you. You seem more interested in time and money then you do in getting an awesome game. If the awesome game doesn't come, fine bitch about it but that doesn't look like it's going to be the case.

You all look at it as "I'm getting a way better game for my money"... which is fine, I guess.

I look at it as "The guy got 8x what he asked for then got way over ambitious, because it went to his head". If this happened with say John Romero... you all would be screaming for his blood. Nice double standard for accountability, there.

Partially self-funding a game is mismanagement?

Yes, when he had no choice, since he ran out of money in the first place. He only put in his money, to flog a half-game to try to raise enough to finish it.

And you don't think that is mismanagement???

He still should have spent WITHIN his means, even if he expanded the game some, due to getting extra funds.

WTF is wrong with you people??? Spending beyond your means is NOT OK. It is why the world's economy is so fucked up. There is a huge difference between getting a little credit and spending way over your head. It is called being responsible and accountable.

He asked for 400k... got 3.3 Million, and ran out of money with a game not even half finished.

That's being responsible???

No, it's scope bloat (way beyond what we graciously overfunded) and reckless spending. I lost a ton of respect for Tim because of this.
