$7.95 for Grand Theft Auto IV is not a 75% discount. I seen it on sale periodically for 75% discounts but currently this is not the case.

Edit: Okkay...ummm....I went back and checked Grand Theft Auto III and it isn't a 75% discount either. $3.95/9.95 is not equal to a 75% discount. Someone needs to start eating their breakfast every morning. I would take a wild guess and say that there are more errors since I only checked 2 on the list and both are reporting the wrong discounts. Someone needs to check this whole list.

John Carmack is a cocky little man who should be choked from behind until he taps out. What a pain in the ass it must be for him to have to figure out how to spend all the money he made from licensing those game engines. Poor guy.

The weapons limit seems a little silly but the good news is that its also probably the easiest thing to fix or change if people really want it changed that bad. Its not like it would take GearBox over a day in employee resources/time to change it. Maybe they will. And even if they don't somebody else can release a patch to change it.

I don't see any problem with the graphics. Even if they are a little outdated, they are good enough. Its the game content and the gameplay that should be judge more than the graphics. Because, as I said, they are "good enough". Not so bad as to detract from anything.

I agree with "The Half Elf". The tits n ass was nice in Duke Nukem 3d years ago because it wasn't the main focus. They "probably" made the Duke Nukem 3D and then went back and said, "What can we put in here to make this a little more fun and stimulating". You went into a bar to kill some aliens and seen the strippers, gave them some cash, and moved on. This new version seems to be relying HEAVILY on the sexual aspect to sell copies of their game. You have to use all the tools you have in the right amounts. Im also not a big fan of profanity just for profanitys sake either. use profanity and the tits'n'ass to spruce up otherwise dull areas, not as the main attraction.
What's the new Duke Nukem Forever slogan, "WERE ****NG GONNA BRING IT" or something stupid like that? Too over the top. Profanity for profanitys sake. Blahh..

Pretty goddamn sad that after 12+ years, the game it is based on is still more fun than the sequel. Nice try douchebags; glad you suckered everyone in with the ol' pre-order switcheroo. Ya didn't get me! (finger)

LOL. If Blues News gave awards for the funniest post this would get my vote.

When I seen the final trailer for the game I thought the trailed sucked. Nothing but rapidly changing scenes sporadically injected with strong sexual content. The fan boys attacked me. But, It seems to follow then that the game will suck which is what I am hearing from this forum thread so far.

I will try the demo, in spite of the pathetic trailer and negative reviews because of my love for the first Duke Nukem 3D. Im not sure thats rational behavior but since demos are free, what the hell.

This trailer sucks a rosy red titty. The scenes flip so fast you don't even really have time to focus on anything. Im sure the video could be used to produce epileptic seizures in some people.

Im also not really all that crazy about the way this game seems to rely heavily on porn and sex much more than the original. The choice of song makes this even more evident. Why the hell would somebody choose a song called "Stroke It" for an action game like Duke Nukem? Do the game developers want all teenagers to purchase this game instead of porn for their masturbation fix?

I loved the original Duke Nukem 3D game and was looking forward to this one but this trailer is a bit of a turn off.



Its a little pathetic.

I'm not sure I'd agree there. There's a very good reason reductio ad absurdum is considered a logical fallacy.

I am not 100% sure but I don't think a reductio ad absurdum argument is inherently fallacious. It depends. You have made this judgement as fact in the case of my argument. *sigh*

1) They get released in theaters. Most movies make back the vast bulk of their costs here.
2) They get released on DVD. By this point sales tend to be gravy. Hundreds of thousands of copies are sold to rental places, as mentioned.
3) The rights get sold to premium cable.
4) The rights get sold to basic cable.
5) The rights get sold to network TV.
6) The rights get sold to Netflix streaming.

And so your point is what? That because game developers have less ways to make money than movie studios therefore they should have special rights? Your against monopolies? Please state your points more clearly so that even I can understand them.

"Piracy these days on PC is probably less problematic than second-hand sales on the Xbox," says lead Fable III combat designer Mike West.

Your right, the developer wasn't equating second-hand game sales with piracy. My mistake. He was implying, financially speaking, that they are worse. I stand corrected.

And this is another good example of why someone might confuse you with a troll. You're drawing the argument out to the extreme (in fact, it's a logical fallacy known as reductio ad absurdum).

Drawing an argument out to extremes is what philosophy is all about my friend. It is done to illustrate the absurdity of the situation at hand. Or as Rush Limbaugh would say, "illustrating absurdity by being absurd". What is the absurdity I am trying to illustrate? Developers equating second-hand game sales with software piracy. What makes game developers so special that "used" video games should be treated differently than any other used item on planet Earth? If I purchase a ball ping hammer and use it for awhile and then sell it used, the manufacturer of the hammer loses a new sale, right? The manufacturer of the ball ping hammer has to produce them one by one. A developer has an infite supply of a product he only created one of. So, developers are special people who transcend all other humans? Maybe the high price of games is what created the used-games market to begin with.

Anyway, I've stated my position and I don't want to beat a dead horse so I will rejoice in the knowledge that you generally agree with me. Developers need to adapt.

To the bozo who is crying "troll". I'll let my posts speak for themselves as to whether or not Im trolling. Im expressing my opinions about a subject I have a strong opinion on. In fact, I could just as easily accuse you of 'trolling' by insinuating Im a troll. My arguments are logical and well stated.

To the other poster:
And as I said already in this thread. The developer never gets paid if I want a game and never purchase it because of high prices. In essence, having the same effect as piracy, right? So I have the same effects on a developer as a blatant pirate if I simply do not buy his software. Should I be prosecuted for not buying the game? No money in the developers pocket. Why even make silly statements like "second-hand sales have the same effects as piracy". Yeah, and how does it strengthen the argument to stop second hand sales? It just confuses the real points to be made.

Of course I wouldn't argue that a game that has been out 2-days on the retail market has lost any resell value at that point, other than the fact that the material CD or cartridge has a slight wear'n'tear. All that is irrelevant. What makes software better than almost any other used good?

Im curious if anyone defending the developers on this has the same perspective when it comes to the movie industry. It only takes 2 hours to watch a new movie release and then sell it on EBay. Why don't we just make it illegal in the United States of America to sell anything used(besides automobiles of course because thats 'eco friendly'? Would that make the developers happy? Why don't we make it illegal to rent movies. Every $4 rental at BlockBuster is a lost 'new' sale to another person, right? Why don't we make it illegal to rent a DVD and invite friends over? Because everyone who watches that $4 rental is a criminal, thats a lost sale, right? And of course, it should be illegal to show UFC PPV fights in public bars right? God only knows how many lost sales occur as a result of that. People have to be reasonable about their expectations of what can and cannot be done in the laws of the physical universe. There are some aspects of life you just cannot control and if you attempt to do so you look stupid.

If I buy a $60 XBOX 360 game and finish it two hours later and sell it back to a GAMESTOP the same day I bought it then I no longer have the game. I can never play the game again. People pay good money for games. If they want to play them over and over then the buy them. if they want to play them a few times or just once they rent. The did it legally, they paid a price however small it is. The developer sold one unique license in the physical universe for $60 and his ass did it willingly. And there is only one physical copy of that game that is playable at a given time in the universe. The developer agreed to that. Well, of course we see that changing now days with stupid ideas like putting a limit on the number of installs on a machine. That doesn't stop pirates, it infuriates people who purchase their software legally.

I guess my advice to the developers complaining about second-hand game sales is you can keep bitching and whining about it or you can say, "This is the world we live in, what can I do differently to maximize my profit margins that is reasonable." The keyword is reasonable expectations.

I think people get greedy and their expectations start to become unrealistic.

Jerryk,

Let me see if I can interpret what you are saying. Your saying, its okay to re-sale cars because it coincidentally helps our environment? I seem to remember someone referring to automobile disposal sites as "junk yards" and I believe they still exists. If we as Americans are expected to recycle oil and tires it wouldn't seem unreasonable to expect that we drive a retired vehicle to a junk yard for parts. I fail to see how that is so impractical.

Im not sure why you are talking about car dealers instead of car manufacturers in your third point but even if we equate the two your point doesn't seem to hold any weight.
Your second point fails to realize that there is no "law" that requires anybody to get their vehicle serviced by the same manufacturer/car dealer who they purchased the automobile from to begin with. Any service technician can perform the maintenance. Replacement parts can be purchased from 3rd parties as well. There is no guaranteed source of income from maintenance costs to a specific manufacturer once an automobile has been sold to a consumer.

My logic regarding the falling values of a software product over a given time period are not flawed. You simply choose to ignore my point by re-gurgitating what consumers have to hear from whiny game developers all the time. "My product should costs just as much as it did today when it was released ten years ago, because were selling you the experience and the experience will be the same when you buy used as it would be if you bought it new". Well, in fact, no it won't. Because, as I stated, nobody wants to pay $60 for a game thats ten years old. They don't give a frogs fat ass whether the bits are exactly the same or not. There is a much, much, much, much smaller demand for games as they age. The older the game becomes, the less desireable it becomes, the less value it has.
Its hilarious in your post how you try to distinguish the differences between automobiles and video games in your post but then make statements about the condition of a 1990 disc compared to a 2010 disc as though they were the same as automobiles. CD's cost how much these days? A dime? A nickel in bulk?
I don't justify paying $5 for an old game because I got the game on an old scratched CD-ROM. I justify it because the game itself is "old". The virtual sea of bits used to produce the game is old. That means the experience will probably be less pleasing than a newer game with newer technologies. Therefore, less desirable. Developers are bitching about losing money to second hand sales when they should be lucky that anybody even wants to play their games as they age, let alone purchase them once they reach a certain age.

Its funny because at the same time developers are screaming piracy everytime the winds blow, much as democrats scream racist everytime Obama gets criticized for driving the country into a ditch, they implicitly show by way of their actions the same thing I am having to explain to you. As games age they aren't worth as much. They themselves know this(at least some do). "Medal of Honor:Airbourne" was on sale on Steam the other day for $2.50 which is a very reasonable price considering its age. But I still didn't purchase it. Why? Because of its age. Because there are a slew of newer better funner more technologically advanced games either here now or coming that I have to choose from.

My last point was simply that people who make their living writing software have to deal with the pros of the profession as well as the cons. Pro:If a developer writes a good game he can become a millionaire over a relatively short period of time, overnight. Cons:some people pirate software. Pro: Unlimited inventory of product since it relies on virtual infinitely reproducible sequence of virtual bits. Piracy in my opinion, is much more worthy of crying over than second-hand game sales. And to equate second-hand game sales with piracy, as one boob in this thread did, is just asinine.

If a consumer makes ten copies of a game on release day and shares it with ten of his friends then a developer has a legitimate reason to cry. If, however, the same game is sold ten times to ten different people, but only ever played on one machine at a time, thats not software piracy. That is people just being smart, thrifty. Being smart shouldn't be a crime.

And how is this different from buying a used "anything". Automobile manufacturers don't see a penny from second hand car sales. So the argument becomes that a used-car isn't worth what it was brand-new. The same thing could be argued about a used video game. Not because of the experience, but because of the fact that the older the game gets the less desireable the game is. Does anybody here want to pay $50 for a game thats ten years old? Not me. So, if I wait until ten years from now to buy Starcraft 2 am I engaging in software piracy? I have to side with the people calling it like it is. Software developers being whiny little bitches who don't want to accept reality as it is. Stop whining, things are what they are.

I could open up a whole new debate on whether it is even ethical to charge $60 to a million different people, a million different times for a product you only, theoretically ever produced, just once. Of course, in a capitalist system, this is perfectly legal. Just as second hand sales should be.

Not buying a game in the first place also has the same effect on a developer as pirating the game. So I guess all the games I want but never purchase makes me a pirate. My soul is damned to hell.

Second hand games sales are equivalent to piracy? LOL. Please put down the crack pipe.

Agreed. How many ***ng times does a regular sniper whos any good at all just keep reloading his rifle, and keep shooting, until he is shot dead himself.
A normal sniper would have shot and fled. Not kept reloading and reshooting 87 times. It is a laughable scripted event.

But the game engine, is sweet as honey. Thank God for multiplayer.

Really lame example dude. Gold sold second hand is pretty much the same as it was when purchased new. Physical books are pretty much the same experience as they were new unless pages have beeen torn out. Its the craziest ****ng concept in the world, only imagineable by greedy stingy people who can't have enough money to restrict the sale of something that has been purchased. I always believed that restricting rights to use software in an "illegal" manner were justified. Restricting people from selling a license to something they legally purchased is ********. Nothing but greed so they can have an infinite supply of cash coming without investing an infinite supply of work.

I've suffered permanent emotional pain and suffering issues as a result of these delays and now they just keep teasing me with little shaky cam clips. Its not right.

Your statement is puzzling to me. I get my political news from many sources. Fox News happens to be one source. I also listen to talk radio. Rusch Limbaugh, Mark Levine, Michael Savage. I also occasionally watch CNN's Anderson Cooper and very rarely Keith Obermans show and Chris Matthews.

Actually, I would argue that neither Fox News or any opposing network rarely tells straight up lies. If thats what you were implying that Fox News does with your ccomments you might want to rethink that. Its all about spinning the facts in the best possible way to support ones core beliefs. Republicans/Conservatives and Democrats/Progressive Liberals both do this. Telling bold face lies would be pretty silly of either network and probably be easily repudiated.

You accuse me of believing everything Fox News says. Its doesnt matter what I believe. It matters what you believe. If you believe in your heart that government healthcare reform was passed because the progressive liberals just couldn't sleep at night knowing that poor people have no health insurance then sleep easy. I seriously doubt you'll believe the same thing ten years from now.
