Re: All I\'ve got to say and hope about DNF...
You talk about the FPS genre as though we're still in the mid-90's. We're not. There've been a crap load of games since then and, obviously, you're going to have a crap load of bad games in there. Plus, think about it. FPS games were evolving like crazy in the mid-90's because there hadn't been hundreds of games before them. Anything new was awesome.

What I'll say, though, is that I think FPS games have gotten into a reality kick where the more life-like, the better. So your pistol is gonna sound like a 9mm should sound and not like Indiana Jones' hand-held cannon. This is why I'm personally looking forward to DNF so much. They're gonna put it in as life-like a setting as they can, but I imagine the rest is gonna be as interesting as possible.

Looking at the Nukem track record of weapons, I don't think DNF will disappoint. The second Duke game had some nice weapons, and even the console games had bad-ass boomsticks. And as already mentioned, they are masters of polish. I think DNF has taken as long as it has because of it, which is why the time it's taking won't bother me that much (as long as its release is within the next 10 years! ). But I don't think we have anything to worry about from 3DR. Makers of one of the most satisfying rocket launchers in a game and they invented the fecking shrinker... and hopefully they will adopt the fan gun?

Yeah, they really invented cool weaponry.

my list:
Devastator
RPG
Shrinker
Freezer

These are my favorites, and I am sure they will all be back in DNF. (as long as the devastator is in I am happy. )

well, cannon fodder is allways nice, but big bosses offer a different kind of challenge and (can) look more intimidating IMO.

Or you can do it the way serious sam does it, just make it big, ugly and in numbers, that way there is allways something intimidating on the screen to make you sh*t your pants.

Monolith's FEAR is a blast but it still has that tactical-inaccurate bullshit, and they managed to ruin dual pistols and the shotgun (something I thought impossible).

I have to disagree about the shotgun in FEAR. Blowing somebody in half and sending his torso across the room isn't powerful enough? That gun was my favourite
