The fat commander also scared the buggers out of me... I think it was the voice. He sounded like a "stranger"! (I was 8 at the time).
nope, that wasnt my intention, duke should have some scary levels like duke3d, i just was curious about the white eyes, the idea that they will glow differently (or perhaps they already do?) when they dont attack or attack is great.

I am sorry for the inconvenience, very sorry... Mainly the dellay is caused by the absence of necessary experience, meaning Yatta has to upload for me...

Am still getting used to how we upload images to our database

We're making the news now though, it won't be long

Crap! The forums are down at duke4.net!

This is pure torture.....

*keeps hitting refresh button on duke4.net*

Klaus: yes someone at duke4.net was able to rip the images directly out of the game's directory files-no capture, just the original full sized images.....they were posted on the duke4.net forums but quickly taken down.

Yatta did some maintaining (forum update i think), comes in handy anyways, as we might prevent people from getting too bothered there...
We'llprobably keep it closed till we get the news up though, guess it's just for the best of all... Looking at our forums just now won't do a thing anyways, there's nothing there, other than discussions like here...

...for now...

Please don't hate us, we love you guys, we just wanna present them properly

Re: Octabrain flashlights?
I'm 100% happy with the Octabrains design but I must say that I do like the idea of color change for the glow when the Octabrain does certain things like attacking or dying.
But I demand a joke about japanese schoolgirls!

Nothing there?!?!? Some random user by the name of Tural was able to rip the full-sized shots from the original game's files.....and he actually posted them there until you removed them, Micki!.

Now you say you want us to wait so you can present them "properly"- i.e. branding the shots with a duke4.net logo so you can call it your "exclusive"??

C'mon, man.....

Actually, he spcifically told us that he'd like them to be exclusive, and also agreed that there's nothing wrong with removing them, i am really REALLY sorry for the people bothered by this...

Please try to understand the meaning of exclusive content for websites as ours, are crucial for success... This is a chance i do not want to miss out on... I would seriously also be bothered in your place, but please understand that i do this for the website's own good, not to purposedly piss off the community... Please understand me

Additionally, it's not just the 2 screenshots of course, it is the complete gallery of the XBLA version of Duke3D, it takes a litle while to upload and then make thumbnails for them all...

It won't take that long from now i think...
I wish we were more prepared for these spontanous news hitting us..!

Don't blame you at all.


Edit: They're up!! I love you Micki!!!!!

Now we can truly analyze the holy hell out of these two beauties. I'm sure the full-blown trailer will be released before we are done......

Re: Octabrain flashlights?
I liked the look of the 2001 Octabrain. It looked like the action figure.
It had a very frightening and intelligent look to it.

But I'm also liking the new version.

There's a slight 'cutesy' baby octopus look to it (mostly from afar) and also (when it's in your face) very viscous looking. I do like the white eyes. It's going to be awesome seeing the tentacles move around.

Unlike the old Octabrain, whose tentacles sort of just hung there (in Duke3d and from what I could tell, the 2001 trailer) these look like they 'float' around giving the illusion that they are under water (look at the one in the background of the new screenshot).

I hope the ranged blast is still in and the horrifying sounds the creature made. Updated ofcoarse.

The brain glowing and the eyes glowing, also.

I wouldn't change a thing about the current looks of the Octobrains- even if it didn't mean the game would take longer.

They pwn everything- even if they weren't ragdoll.

The name of the song, and the lyrics, were highly relevant. Also Duke-related.

Re: Octabrain flashlights?
I am imagining them striking at you with the tentacles with a whip kinda sound to it before being to close enough to bite. They should feel a lot more dynamic then the flying "meatheads" in Duke 3D in either way.

Looking nice, very nice...

Now the nitpicking:

It also looks jagged, but I could blame that to the resolution (1280x720).

Aaaaaand...hmmmm, let me think...

Ah, of course, Duke´s facial texture is not as detailed as, lets say...Crysis facial textures.

Also the hair looks kinda funny....aaaand, I cant think of anything else.

Analysis -

The hoover dam definitely has worm problems.
That's some hair-gel the stripper is using. (my avatar focuses on a different aspect of that shot)
The other stripper - schoolgirl outfit - Charlie W's head must have exploded somewhere.
Octabrain 2 seems to be having a delightful chat with somebody off camera.
What kind of a grip does Duke's pistol have? What are those green markings?
The champagne room is sweet. Duke seems to have the blue lighting oozing out of his lips.

That is all, for now.

On a lighter note, I'm loving the detail in the screenshots - the gun looks fantastic, and those green 'claw marks' are certainly intruiging...
