Just curious. It might actually be good. I have to say, as banal and mediocre this game turned out to be, I'd buy the next Gearbox Duke for sure. Especially if they took all this criticism to heart and modernized his character a little bit, wrote better lines for him, and actually paced the game to be genuinely exciting, not whatever this turned out to be.
Would you buy the next Duke game by Gearbox?
@The_Laughing_Man: I know. But now that the name is theirs, the next game will fully be theirs. The real question is, can they fix Duke Nukem at this point or has there been too much ire built up at this point. How good a game does the next one have to be to fix the illwill at this point? What would you like to see in the next Duke?
If they consolized the PC version of it I would not because MAKELOVETO Gearbox and everything they've done to their PC games since Opposing Forces came out. I'd like a game with a FOV that is not so deep that console players complain and mouse movement that works.
Absolutely! Once the "pieced together over 15 years through multiple engine changes and multiple design changes and a list of staff to fill a zip code" version is out of the way Gearbox can rework the next Duke Nukem into a modern FUN game. It will be an uphill battle considering the reviews of this game will stick in peoples minds for a long time. The first step is updating the Duke character by toning him down some. Sure let the guy be cocky but it doesn't have to be so over the top with pissing and twins givin him pleasure. The best part of Duke was the comedy and the multiplayer. Damn I miss those pipe bombs and trip wires!
If they can make a Duke game that is half as fun as Borderlands I'm there day one.
Why does everyone assume that Duke Nukem is making some big comeback? It thought that DNF was done because Randy started out at 3D Realms and released it as a bit of a passion project for all the people that he used to work with. Some decent money has been made off of it, but what makes people so sure that this is a springboard for something bigger?
@Brendan: If you purchase the IP you probably ought to do something with it. I would think they would at least.
@OP , I feel like people won't stop crying about Duke until they just make it Duke Nukem: Modern Warfare. I mean, apparently that's what you have to do to succeed right?
