Question Ego Rage and Drunk Modes for DNF?
Will there be a EGO RAGE MODE for DNF? For instance Duke has an EGO bar which he can fill up by killing enemies, if you kill a Pig Mutant with a Pistol you get 20 EGO, with a Shotgun 30 EGO etc. When you fill the EGO bar to max, Duke cracks his knuckles hard then says some harsh new line everytime like F**K yeah I'm going to kick all your faggot asses then he goes all out Crazy with Full Testosterone Rage. He is able to move, jump, shoot, and attack physically faster and better. Like a Duke Kick or Melee Punch with even stronger strength etc.

The Duke Drunk Mode would be the opposite of the EGO Rage Mode, it would be like if you drink too much beer in the game... Duke starts to become Drunk and move slower and so on so forth.

I'm guessing 3DR may have already put this in DNF, if not then the game would still Rock. From watching the Jace Hall Show again, I have to only wonder why there was an EGO system in place...

I always love it when drinking beer actually effects your view a little. Fable does it great.

Duke being drunk is obligatory! I'm drunk now and it's so cool. Duke must be cool too.

When I looked at the title of the thread for the first time I saw drunk monsters instead of drunk modes Lol. I must be very drunk.

Actually, being drunk isn't cool. But to show the effects (vision blurry, possibly even delayed reaction time) is cool. It shows kids not to drink in excess.

In the previous Duke games that used EGO, it was pretty much just health with a different name.

As for the 'rage' thing, I'd rather not have it. A lot of games have that kind of thing these days, and I've never really found it to add anything to the game, just make things unbalanced.

The drunk thing would be cool though, I remember when it was quite common in games to have that feature.

The game should explain how the devastator's targeting reticle is tied in to Duke's shades HUD so when he has a beer, we get drunken missile mode.

Yeah I hope these features are in the game, they should be... Sir George any confirmation? Maybe show it off in action during the Trailer you guys are planning to release this year hopefully.

Agreed.

Also Duke's damage is halved too, I forgot to mention that happens too during the EGO RAGE MODE.

Re: Ego Rage and Drunk Modes for DNF?
another thing could be that the ego bar would be always 100% when drunk so you have no idea what it really is and could get killed with every shot.
also reloading would take twice as much time and you'd constantly drop the magazine or try to load the wrong ammo. you'd try to reload the uzi with shells - "Now where do I have to put those?"

And if you are really wasted: instead of shooting the pigcops you give them money. Then you drop into a coma (black screen) and later you wake up in a filthy motel room with a pigcop laying next to you in the bed.

Now that should teach the kids not to drink!

Pigcops should look like strippers then when you're giving them money. Player shouldn't know they're pigcops.

Troopers would turn into furries, pigcops into strippers in police dresses, Assault Commanders into babes with huuuuuge breasts, Battlelords into hot warrier princesses, Octabrains into pairs of flying boobs.
But if there are lizard-like aliens (Enforcers) you say: "If I'm ever going to get out of here alive, I'm going to need some golf shoes."

Re: Ego Rage and Drunk Modes for DNF?
I'd prefer if duke would not get into a ego rage mode. at least not like in other games like Haze when you take an overdoze. maybe just that he uses more one liners than usual.
i'd also prefer if stroids (if they are back) would just make you run faster but not alter the view too much. A bit more contrast would be ok but not too much like youre on acid. it could be so that the mouse sensitivity would increase and autoaiming would be increased as well so you would move like your hyperactive but you still hit the targets. This could still be rather annoying though.

in drunk mode it could be so that there is an autoaiming but not towards the aliens but to the tits of the strippers. you have to move the mouse really fast to get away from them.

there could also be a reference to Otto (The Simpsons):
"Wow, my hands look awesome!" *stares at hands*

If there is some object like a table nearby:
"I bet a 100 bucks I can jump over that thing!" *fails terribly, breaks neck*

"I think there is something stuck in the barrel" *looks into the barrel, shoots off head*

Reference to Pigsty/Lani:
"Damn, I drunk too much again. I hope this time I don't have another tattoo on my ass."

I think this would all be great ideas for EGO Rage, I certainly hope 3DR adds this feature in to make Duke more powerful and unleash his TRUE potential on his enemies mercilessly unlike never before...

Ego mode and drunk are both bad ideas, this games been in development for about 10 years, im sure 3dr would want their game too be completely original. the rage thing has been done many times now. the drunk feature is another idea that has been used like in gta4, bioshock, or condemned 2, conkers bad fur day. sure it could be a small extra feature like in a casino or in a strip club. but would it be really necessary like in a dam or some space station. this is just my opinion, also i cant really imagine duke getting drunk and making a fool of himself.

Duke Nukem can't be drunk only the beer gonna have some trouble... well i'm just kidding , but it's crazy why Duke want to get Drunk on a mission ? i mean you know you're gonna be sad after that and no able to attack or anything else.

"Drunk mode" have been used waaay before that, like the first Leisure Suit Larry game (1987). I know it's been used in other old games too, I just can't remember any names right now.

I really don't like the sound of this. It's only one small step from this to Quad Damage pick-ups (while Quad Damage itself is just fine, it's a magical thing and doesn't belong in Duke's world).

It's been done before, and I think it's quite difficult to balance the game when you include Rage Modes. Duke 3D was just great without them (unless you count Steroids, but they're optional and I never used them - that "it's optional" part needs to be a big factor, and I believe it excludes the "automatic rampage when the Ego Meter is filled" thing).

I also object to your use of the word "faggot". Grow up already.

And when you use the toilet, you take 5 times as long.

But no, I don't like this idea either. It's not so much a case of it having been done before, as it is that I just don't want Duke to be going around getting drunk.

That would be a good idea actually. Especially the drunk mode, the ego mode must be balanced properly though.
