Take-Two

After the terrible out come of Duke Nukem Forever and poor sales. Take-Two has lost 4% of it's market share just in that release time. Coupled with L.A. Noire selling under a million copies, Take-Two's financial gain has been "significantly reduced."

I guess you can't bet it all on the Duke.

The sad part is, people are still in denial that Duke Nukem Forever is fucking horrendous. They were waiting so zealously for this game for 12 fucking years, and can't except the fact that they waited for nothing.

Yeah I don't know what you guys are saying, You must have not played the game, because the game that I played was fucking awesome. And I'm pretty sure I was playing Duke Nukem Forever.

What do you think about the things that people are complaining about in the reviews? Are they just irrelevant, or do the issues not bother you personally?

Ignore the console reviews, the ports are lousy. The PC version needs patches to improve stability. The game itself is sort of a mess in a lot of ways but it isn't inherently bad, just not amazingly good. Some people gave it bad reviews because they didn't think it was funny, either.

It would have been great if it was 20$. I got the Balls of Steel edition because then I'd get the bad-ass bust even if the game were to suck shit, but I enjoyed it while it lasted. Still need to try the multi-player, though.

You moron, that's where the majority of sales come from: The console gamers. If we're discussing the sales figures and such, the 'fact' that the console versions are shit is a huge issue. If this is true they should have just waited a bit longer and fixed the shit.

Now, I'm not a graphics whore, coincidentally I'm also a huge Nintendo enthusiast, but the graphics on Duke Nukem Forever, from what I've seen, look like muthafuckin' Doom 3. Yeah, I said it, Doom fucking 3.

Now, you might say, "Doom three had amazing graphics for the time," and I'd say, "The fuck it did, I always thought that shit was ugly as hell. When your textures and meshes suck that much balls, it must brainwash people into thinking they rock."

In all seriousness, the Zelda games for the CDi Phillips looked better than that shit.

The afore mentioned should allow you to understand my views on the graphic quality of Duke Nukem Forever.

"On the day of the game's US release, shares in Take-Two Interactive, Rockstar Games' parent company, peaked at 17.75% and closed up 7.75% on the day; a three-year high for the company."

Oh yes, LA Noire completely tanked Take-Two.


Your opinion is wrong.

Console gamers aren't people. They are consumer androids meant to feed the corporate machine.

It's probably gonna be the same as the other logos, just with a "V" numeral. No significant changes, really.

So, to the people saying they liked the game, just out of curiosity, what specifically did you like about it?

Games like Painkiller and Serious Sam did the same thing only much, much better.

No, they're just plain not people. They have no minds, no thoughts, no opinions or unique talents. They're merely fodder for something greater.

Also, Macs are just shitty computers with a stupid logo, controllers are readily available for computers as well, laptops allow you to sit next to a friend or just simply talk over skype/ventrilo/whatever else, and you can also use computers for a vast number of tasks which you cannot use consoles for - such as creating fanciful artwork, editing sound, filing your taxes or looking up phone numbers.

The only reason anyone would ever get a console is if they're an Activision fanboy.

Gamers can have opinions and thoughts no matter what platform, PC or otherwise. Using a console will not kill you nor make you stupid. What makes someone stupid is looking down at people who just want to play games on their platform of choice. Yeah, PC is awesome and has many perks that consoles don't. But that doesn't give you any right to think that console gamers are idiots or consumer tools because that's how they want to spend their money. Fling insults as you will, but let the players play on what THEY want.

Both those game suck too, LA NOIRE shouldn't be getting as much positive press as it is. Both those games were equally boring with bland gameplay elements. In Duke Nukem Forever you could only care 2 weapons and in the original Duke you could carry alot. Only carry 2 weapons??? Lame, mind you didn't do much shooting in Duke because it was wacked like that. And LA NOIRE is so lame that it doesn't matter what choices you make in the game because the end result is still the lame and the missions weren't even fun but most of them were tedious and boring.

I used to think consoles were alright when I was like.... 14? But over time their gimmicky and stagnant nature just struck me as pointless. They are toys, not tools. They're fine if you're too poor or simple-minded to purchase and operate worthwhile hardware.

Macs are simplified to appeal to less adept users. In this sense, they are similar to consoles.

It has plenty of great action, the blood and gore is much higher than most FPSes, and it still has plenty of great, badass Duke attitude to it, even if half of it is cheesy and the other half is chuckle humor. The graphics may not be the best thing out there, but they still get the job done and at the end of the day, they still look good and really give the maps detail and atmosphere. The weapons, both new and old, also feel great, look great, and are powerful and kick the right amount of ass, even if you can only carry two at a time. Meanwhile, the enemy AI is strong, smart, and isn't as easily manipulated as it was in Duke Nukem 3D, forcing you to fight hard rather than waltz and shoot about like a drunken Rambo. In addition, more of the environment is destructible, the driving areas are a new and welcome implementation as something that was never done before in a Duke Nukem game, and the puzzles are a lot more clever as opposed to just pressing big red button sequences like in Duke Nukem 3D.

If you're bashing and bitching about this game, you're not looking hard enough. There's plenty of material to appreciate about it.

Forever is a duke game in every way but that's just that it's a duke game people expect some super maturity from duke when he's always been the kid,
as for game play some things are disappointing like the fact you only get two weapons you can kinder ads you have regen health & can't super fast infinite run but worst of all they removed the mighty BOOT.

Duke still play's pretty much like 3D but it also try's to be a more modern shooter which is where duke fails he's meant to be a chaotic shooter full of non-stop awesomely fun moments which are ruined by some of the removed/added mechanics mentioned above.

As for graphics duke looks good not AAA good but good enough for this gen the game try's to stay true to 90's style of game play but fails when it try's to go for the COD approach which is sad as I'm a big fan of the DN series if this had released back when it was meant to it would've been met with a lot of praise but duke hasn't age well in a world where sexist pig s of doucheness males are no longer fun as main characters it's a game that could've avoided a lot of hate if it didn't go & try to be a modern shooter.

One last redeem for duke is fact the multi-player stays true to duke 3d which was great to see, a great game just not so great in this era still im glad to have just been able to finally play it... dnf gives me hope for other stuck in development hell games will be in our hands some day.

...So? I'm not much of a computer guy, so I have a Mac and use consoles for games, and that works perfectly fine for me (well, almost perfectly; my only big regret is that I can't play all the PC-exclusive indie games that come out). If you're more of a techie, then yeah, it makes sense for you to use a PC. People just have different interests and make their purchasing decisions accordingly.

Using a PC doesn't somehow make you a superior human being. Thinking that does make you a huge dork, though.

I enjoyed it, hell I even bought the balls of steel edition.
The only problem is they tried to mix CoD with DN3D which failed.

I can't help but wonder if cawadoody didn't exist the game would have been better.

They said I could become anything so I became everything.
