    Announced in April 1997, Duke Nukem Forever will have been in development for 14 years by the time it is released. It will only have been in development by Gearbox for about 9 months. Once they finally got it away from 3D Realms, it took Gearbox less than a year to polish up and release what 3D Realms already had. 3D Realms founders self financed the game to the tune of ~$20 million, and settled multiple lawsuits with their publisher, Take Two Interactive, over failure to deliver the game. Gearbox by most accounts has less than $2 million wrapped up in securing the rights to the game and finishing it but stands to receive ALL of the money the game brings in, as both 3D Realms and Take Two interactive surrendered any financial connection to the game. Even if it sells badly they will easily make that back and then some. The real bad part of all of this is that many of the folks who worked on the game for 3D Realms over the years had deferred salary wrapped up in the release of the game that they will not get as a result of the lawsuits and settlements, and the ultimate sale of the entire game. The head honchos at Gearbox who received everything in connection to the game said that when they looked through it all, the game was within a month or two of release 4 or 5 times during the 13 years, only to be scrapped at the 11th hour. No wonder Take Two sued them.

    yea i read a few interviews from the heads of 3dRealms and they were always changing their ideas in the last second to switch over to the latest graphics technology and having to redo everything they've done...they were sitting on a goldmine...instead they just threw it away with horrid management

    Incredible game.
    Just wish it had co-op. That game had co-op written all over it. I'm sure to pick it up once the price goes down.

    If you're getting a 360, you need ME1 and ME2 and then pre-order ME3. They make the Halo story line look like a really bad children's book.

    Yeah, I'm not getting four Halo games, but Reach is a certainty. I'm also going to have to get Dead Space 2, Army of Two, Dante's Inferno, the new Star Wars game that's name has escaped me, and the ME games. Oh yeah, and the new Duke Nukem game that is finally coming out.

    I'm also getting Left 4 Dead 2 and Resident Evil 5 because me and my friends used to have a blast playing zombie arcade games back in the day.

    I would say yes from a story perspective. Gameplay is a lot different though.

    You don't need to, but you'll enjoy 2 a lot more if you play the first one.

    I heard Rift was a medicore World of Warcraft clone. I think I'll stay away, though I can recommend World of Warcraft as the best game ever.. but only if you don't have children and keep your gaming time to a minimum. I cringe when I find adults with children that play MMORPGs or even worse, adults that let their children play MMORPGs. These games can take over your life very easy, not to mention the bad communities in which horrible social skills like racism, homophobia, and vile language are expressed as normal behavior.

    There is legislature right now to put warning labels on violent video games, but I think they are focusing on the wrong type of games. They need to be putting these warnings on games like World of Warcraft and Rift and other MMORPGs.

    Dude, WoW is terrible. Young kids and immature people running around. RIFT is a much more dynamic game with much better PvP and a very interesting, diverse class system.

    I hated WoW. Preferred WAR to it, but RIFT is the best I've played so far.

    Why not? Have you gotten off the citadel? Just do the main story missions on therum/noveria/feros and then vermire/the end. The story is really good but the gameplay can be a bit slow. Better in ME2.

    I haven't gotten out of the citadel. The game play is incredibly boring so far. My biggest problem is that I restart almost every time I try to pick it up because so much time passes in between attempts at playing.

    Yes, we should have warned you, the first couple hours can really suck. Whenever I replayed it I did everything I could to get off the Citadel as soon as possible.

    As I recall, the three main missions after you leave the Citadel are alright, but it isn't until you get to Vermire that it really gets going. From there until the end of the game is a real rush.

    Also, there's nothing wrong with skipping all the optional stuff and just sticking to the main story. Sure, some of it can be interesting, but mostly it's useless fluff. After playing ME2, the thought of going on all those Mako missions again makes my skin crawl.

    Dead Space 2
    Love it! If you liked the first one, pick it up. I haven't played the multi-player much so I don't really want to say whether it's good or not. The story mode is excellent.

    I'll be getting Killzone3. I'm excited about the multiplayer, I loved the campaign mode in 2 but I thought the multiplayer sucked. Add me so we can play when it comes out. earaik33

    Overall, I have to say I'm not impressed with CoD: Black Ops in comparison to CoD: MW, CoD: MW2, CoD: WaW

    Anyone else feel this way? Or if you love it, can you share why?

    MW2 multiplayer sucked. It was only good if you liked to camp just to get your 15+ kill streak. No one actually played the game and the maps were pretty terrible as well. MW2 is good from a story stand point, but let's be honest these games are about multiplayer.

    COD4 was the best. Then Black Ops, then MW2, and finally WAW

    Agreed. MW2's multiplayer was beyond frustrating. Between the ridicilous kill streaks and campers I just could not really enjoy it like COD4. MW2 also seemed much more glitchy then COD4. Nothing beats people getting unlimited care packages during a game. Once that glitch became prevalent I just quit playing.

    How about MW2's infinite noob tube glitch as well?

    That was a ****ty, ****ty game after about the first month of play that only got by on name recognition and had very little substance.

    First time your teammate got a nuke? Cool. The next 20 times? Boring...as...****.
