Nope, not buying it. First, I don't have an Xbox 360, and even if I had it I wouldn't buy it because I'm not interested in multiplayer and the PC version of Duke3D has much better graphics with the HRP. It also has a real widescreen mode, while the 360 version does not.

EDIT:
Having said that, I was NOT expecting that version of Duke3D to have any graphic enhancements compared to the vanilla DOS version. I was expecting it to look exactly like that, complete with low resolution textures, spritely appearance and 4:3 aspect ratio.

No. I don't have an Xbox or Xbox360. I cannot see paying $200+ to be able to play one game that I play on the PC.

It looks like it's going to keep me sitting on my chair for a very, very long time. It's perfect! Exactly like the PC version. I'M GONNA BUY IT THE SECOND IT'S OUT.

Leaning towards Yes. Depends on if its a 1200 or 800 point game. Im sold on 800, but 1200 is almost a no-go.

Micki!
08-26-2008, 08:20 AM
If i had a X360, i'd get it of course... But i don't so i'm not getting it...

Unless something goes very wrong between now and the release, I'm getting it.
I played DN3D almost exclusively back in the day, got my nickname from that game, so I can't really not get it.

Not many of the games outside of Doom and Streetfighter get much attention. This seems to be getting alot of attention from multiple sites/magazines.

I am surprised by the amount of things you can enable, disable, customize, change... no Xbox 360 game I've ever played let you change so much. This version sounds like it's going to dominate Xbox Live Arcade. I'm just so freakin' excited.

I love you 3D Realms :love:

Oh, will we be able to change the sensitivity of aiming? If so, YAY!

Longtimefan1984

I will not waste a single second, let alone a penny on this. Its a gimmick to attract new fans to the franchise. I doubt Duke Nukem would have ended up as the obscure asset it is today were it not for the repeated blunders at 3DR.

Its great, and i'm glad we get to enjoy Duke again....but let there be no illusions, this has very little if anything to do with pleasing the fans, and more to do with a strategic move to "revive" duke if you will...

Steve
08-27-2008, 01:20 AM
In order for Duke to survive and the business to do what it is supposed to do (make money) - They need new fans\customers.

Hard to say, but I'm actually one who never owned a console-based Duke game, ever since I had a PS1 since 1997 or so, I never really gave any of those games any thought. However, with Duke XBLA Edition, this will get me in to what I've been missing. Any Duke game I've owned was always behind the keyboard and mouse. I'd be happy to convert to console DukeMatching.

For those who don't like/suck at the pad/controller



I will say before I got my 360, I had a laptop that was a year old, and a PS2. I played my STEAM games on the laptop, along with many different RTS, and played GTA/sports on my PS2. I could NEVER get into FPS on it because I sucked and it was hard to control vs a keyboard/mouse. My computer was soley for that.

When I bought my 360, I got it along with BF2 and Madden 06. The HD graphics shocked me and the controls were tough, but after maybe 3-4 days to a week of playing BF2, I mastered it.





So all those who are not fond of the console release, don't worry :D with the XBLA support, this will be the best edition of DN3D to date.



Longtimefan1984 - As of now, to many gamers besides hardcore DN fans such as ourselves, Duke Nukem is a forgotten thing of the past. When I ask people if they've ever played a DN game, they have to think about it. With DNF *eventually* getting released, it's a very good move to release DN3D on XBLA. It gives the name new light, and exposes it to a new generation of fans. And gives the hardcore fans a new port and better multiplayer support :D

I tried playing Total Meltdown a few weeks ago and I just couldn't. The controls just don't cut it for me, and combined with the graphics\framerate it is almost unplayable IMHO. Cool back in the day, but not so much now.

It's a toss up for me. I find it amazing that after 12 years and re-releasing Duke 3d on almost every platform known to man this still constitutes the bulk of their sales. No wonder they don't give a darn to get DNF out. Why waste all their time, or 25% of their non warcraft time, working on a new game when you can just re-release the old one and make millions? :D

Prowler46 does have a point, also another game to prove that point is Final Fantasy 7. So many spin offs, remakes, prequels, and non canon sequels.

But back on topic, no i will not buy Duke 3D on xbla for a couple reasons

1) i already got it on my computer

2) my xbox 360 cant get internet

Don't have a 360 yet. So - no for me.
But I'll buy it - should I get one.

Definite purchase. Duke3D for PC was and still is my favourite game of all time. A good mate and i have already planned to play through all 4 episodes in co-op next weekend. Its kind of surreal that it is actually coming out, Duke3D for XBLA has always been for me one of those "Wouldn't it be cool if...?" type of scenarios. Cannot wait to play again.

This is so not reality.

The force isn't strong enough to convince me to buy a 360 for a single game I already own :( Especially since theres already a Wii and PS3 in the house.

Same. *sob*

You tell em, George. I was there months before the original shareware even came out waiting eagerly for DN3D the first time around, and had the full game preordered months in advance. I'll be there on day 1 when it comes to XBLA. Why? Simply put, it's one of the most fun games I've played in the last 12 years (and for FPS games, there have been alot of them in the years between that have missed the mark IMO) and it's alure endures.

Looking forward to playing a decent (indecent?) stable game of Dukematch: Used to play it over the net via Kali (via the DOS version.. not that Kali95 gui crap..) and in most cases, best you could hope for was one-on-one.. usually more than that would de-sync within minutes. Ah.. those were the days. ;)
