Duke Nukem Forever will finally be released next week but today those who pre-ordered the game can have access to an exclusive demo. Well, not that exclusive actually since it's the same old one we have all been seeing for a while. Still, here is the first part of the 360 demo, with its choppy framerate, aliasing, poor textures and 40 second long loading screens. Yes, it does not look pretty considering today's standards, but, hey, it's Duke and he does not give a f*ck. More to come, including videos from the PC demo.
Update: Last part of the 360 demo video is up. Update 2: First part of the PC version added, 1080p, it's aliased, but AA was activated... Update 3: Second and third parts of the PC version are up.
I think it was apparent to people.. even before the system launched.. that the early launch of the Dreamcast was risky. So I can see how EA might want to play hardball to sweeten the deal on said risk (5 minutes ago)
They also sold 2K and exited the console business... so maybe it wasn't all the best course of action after all :D (8 minutes ago)
That's what I meant lol. NFL, not NHL. (9 minutes ago)
it's pretty shitty to deny a system because of Visual Concepts though. They hadn't even produced anything yet and EA was a giant even then (9 minutes ago)
EA's license is supposed to be up this year I think. I wish 2K could make an NFL game again. (10 minutes ago)
NFL2K was also the franchise that made it painfully obvious how little Madden was changing year to year. EA had to buy the NFL, and 2K bought the MLB in response I believe. (13 minutes ago)
Even though EA had their games on the Saturn and that flopped hard, the Saturn ran headlong into the famous "$299" mic drop moment. (28 minutes ago)
