A question about the demo, if I'm in Australia, does that mean I get the demo June 3rd 12am Australian time? Or do I have to wait for the Americans...

I went into EB today to collect my First Access Code and asked and they said it should be Late Friday but I don't know how trustworthy they are.

That'd be cool, I could just come home from school and play DNF until midnight Posted Image

I was planning on skipping school too as it is the final day of this term (well for me anyway).

I thought you were in Australia Posted Image It's the middle of the term for me.

We all have iPads so I'll be waiting for the email that delivers the golden news, and then I'll give everyone a hug! Which is slightly disturbing because I go to an all guys school Posted Image

I'll keep reading the forums. I can't believe some of my friends still don't believe it's coming out. Well I'll show them on June 3rd. :)

People that still don't believe it's coming out are either trolls, very uninterested in this game or they are incredibly dumb and ignorant.

I'm gonna play through Duke 3D and Manhattan Project. I may just skip the demo and dive right into the balls of steel edition. I feel like playing the demo a few days before the full game will sorta ruin the enjoyment of just playing the full game for the first time. I've waited a long time for this so I want it to be special and new, not replaying the first few levels or whatever.


I don't know, I mean I played the shareware version of Duke 3D and it didn't hurt the game for me at all. Different strokes I guess.

Shareware had a full first episode. You didn't need to replay it in full game. DNF demo, on the other side, won't be the first "episode" of the game.

Windows incompatibility is a feature, not a bug.

Heck, we don't even know what it will contain.

It's not too late to register a code and select a platform for the demo is it? The deadline was ages ago...

I even told them that the game was passed off to Gearbox, and I also showed them all the new stuff (eg. trailers, etc), and they said "I'll believe it when I see it".

It's too bad I have to work Friday, otherwise, I would probably play the demo all day.

That's okay, Jeff... You will have the night to download it, and have it ready to play first thing Saturday morning after breakfast. At least that's what I'm gonna be doing.

Anyway, now we're at 12 1/4 days until launch. What a more appropriate day for the DNF release other than Flag Day? There's a flag in the DNF logo, for crying out loud!

Maybe we should have two or three separate countdowns, the first one to count down towards the demo release, then the big one set for our European and global friends for the 10th, then for us in North America for the 14th.

Is the demo being released by time zones or is everyone getting access at once? (I am not FAC so I wouldn't know)
If it's the last, the server congestion is going to kick some ass.

Well, it's already the 3rd here and has been for 7 hours now.
I haven't seen any chatter about it on any NZ sites yet.

I guess it will be out for everyone when it gets June 3rd at Texas where Gearbox is.

(but I hoped that we would get it with time zones at 12 o clock in each one,it would be great :( )

I thought this would have been the more sensible thing to do instead of putting huge strains on the download servers and then making the players wait FOREVER just to play the demo.

Yeah,it would also be cool. :D
Another cool thing would be if stores had midnight release parties...
Damn,WoW had one,why not Duke ? :(
I'd love to stay awake and get to the store to be from the first who will get DNF in their hands! ;)

That was because WoW wasn't R18 like Duke is, most countries/places/shops wouldn't like having parents bitching because they open late to sell an R18 game.

Although who knows, some places still might if they anticipate good sales from it.

I haven't got the pre-order just because, after 13 years of this shit, I want to walk into store, pick the case off a shelf and pay for it over the counter.

A few days ago I went into Game and found a pre-order case or two on the shelf. There was also a poster for the game in the window. That is the first tangible real-life sign of the game coming out that I've seen. It was great to finally see something RL about the game finally.

I'm wondering how the demo will be delivered myself, couldn't believe it would be released through Steam, since it would be open to any Steam user, even if they aren't part of the First Access Club.
I have to think that we might get the demo from the First Access Club site itself, possibly?
