Immediately made me think of the blond chick from The Guild. Really funny in the show. Not funny at all when you read about the actual effect of that behavior. Just sad to read something like this.

It's possible. I don't remember seeing it. I do remember they were very limiting on the amount of footage that was allowed to be shot, and all I recall seeing was the Stadium level.

I just remember a bunch of montage video that contained several environments, other than the Stadium.


Just FYI. Maybe not the videos I saw at the time but videos nonetheless from PAX:

considering we saw this 'exact' same demo running months ago on multiple videos across the internet.

No, we saw the stadium level, which actually looks pretty decent and is fun. We did not see the "desert weapons demo" level in the demo, that they would have been far better off leaving out of the demo and out of the game entirely.

Basically if it had just been the stadium, I'd be interested, but still not sold on it. After playing the 2nd half of the demo, I'm not even interested.


You are incorrect. We saw both of these levels from gameplay movies at PAX. Well, they were there to see regardless of whether you saw them or not. I remember thinking the desert stuff looked kinda crappy, and after playing it, the desert stuff looks kinda crappy. Awesome, but crappy.

I can't believe this thread hasn't hit 100 posts yet.

Duke Forever finally see's the light of day, a shitty demo to show it off and it's like half the Blues population is on vacation.

I'll help.

I'm getting a kick out of the irrational expectations here considering we saw this 'exact' same demo running months ago on multiple videos across the internet.

Not to mention people going down a checklist of different qualities of the demo. DNF is a 12 year old gem not to enjoy the qualities of a modern game, but to enjoy the qualities of a game that should have come out around the same time of the y2k bug.

Its just as good an any other shooter out there, but its nothing special. The driving is a little wonky without using a controller. I'm not sure who stole from whom, but there was a few lines from the Evil Dead series in there. "Good, Bad, I'm the guy with the gun." "Hail to the King, baby."

Did anyone else laugh at the Half Life joke? No? Come on! That joke was SO OLD it was funny. I look forward to playing this and sensing the vast number of years it was in development by the change in graphic quality or dated references between sections of the game.

I would maybe pay $5. Maybe. But, I'm not disappointed. In fact, I feel vindicated. I've been saying all along that it's been in development so long that there is no way it can ever live up to its own legacy.

It doesn't take rocket surgery to figure that one out, but go ahead, pat yourself on the back.

It was fun. Definitely simplistic and feels like an old game, but fun. I don't require all the games I play to feel modern or require 32 cameras to generate facial animation.

You are correct. I could have phrased that differently.

"Mafia 2 is a mediocre game that I had a miserable time playing until quitting out of boredom and dislike around chapter 7."

I actually thought Crysis 1 was better.

If it wasn't for the flying sperm shooting icicles, I would have enjoyed the game much more.

Warhead was better than the first game...had to suffer fewer of the sperm enemies.


Opinions run all over the place. Warhead was painful. I finished like 3/4 of it and couldn't handle any more, and I rarely quit games before the ending but I did just that with Warhead. The 'first game' was significantly better.

Never played this or Mafia 2 becasue of all the bad, bad mojo.

It might be worth considering now they are both more stabilized. If they could be approached as budget titles might not be so traumatizing and painful.

Mafia 2 was a miserable game. I'd highly advise against it. Unless you like stupid easy shootouts and fairly well crafted movies all tied together by long driving sequences, then it may be just your thing.

Bioshock 2 was a decent game for me. I never knew of any bad mojo. Not great, but pretty damn decent.

Great jokes aside, I read good things so I'll be checking it out. Although I don't know if this or L.A. Noire DLC comes first tonight.

All I need is Tali and an effective biotic and I'm good. That got me through most of both games.

Obviously people that still play the game will have very different reasons for the decline versus those that have actually quit playing. I'm sure there is a wide variety of reasons.

I know a LOT of people that quit primarily toward the end of wrath, and most did so because they were just sick of the game itself. It's reached its maximum potential. Only so many people want to spend their free time on something like this, especially for years on end. People will leave, and they'll get a few new players along the way. Sadly these new players are sometimes children whose parents shouldn't let them near the timedrain that is WoW.

I love how the comments are pretty much "I cant see anything at all...... BUT here's exactly what it looks like."

Apparantly you don't have eyeballs.

Looks like the opposite of CoD and a classic id game with fun gunplay, which makes me happy.

I wouldn't go that far. Classic id games were very fast run-and-gun shooters. This is a slow, cover-based shooter.

I would go that far. But thanks for commenting!

It looks fun - what more do you want?

They want something to bitch about. And they find it.
