    Agreed. They did have the good idea to copy hl2 but sadly they had that idea waaay too late in development and the game was also visually outdated like crazy.
    Well, they did copy it, but as Micky said, they did it badly. Most of HL2 puzzles looked like they were a natural part of the environment, either having been placed there by some NCP, or just were just 'happenstance' obstacles like errant electrical sparks or lasers. Most of DNF's puzzles looked unnatural, they looked too 'artificial,' like the devs were trying to say "Hey LOOK, a PUZZLE!' The only time I could really see where they looked far better was in DWCM, but then, that was a far better piece then DNF was at all.

    Also with the regen health issue, both HL2 and Halo gave you ample places to take cover (even during boss battles) and gave you your maximum health bar right away. DNF gave a you a regen bar, but it was tiny and even with 'Ego Boosting' it didn't often regen quickly enough to counter the damage that the game threw at you. Thus Duke died far more often on Normal then Master Chief ever did on Heroic Difficulty (the highest difficulty I played on Halo.)

    There are other things that it tried to replicate although badly, but I would say simply that it's biggest issue underlying all was that nobody was able to really override George when enough was enough. Crappy Half Life and Halo imitations would have been avoided, and we'd still be thinking of it as it's own thing instead of a poor rip-off of another.

    Looks like something that you would find in a porn shop.
    I agree. It looks faintly... testicular. Is this your idea of a joke Gabe? :P

    Duke Manhattan is a must-buy if you haven't bought it. Wait for sales and then buy Platformer pack. It's surely worth the 5 $ guys. I love MP, play it every time i travel somewhere in a train ;)
    I would go even one further...

    Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project is what Duke Nukem Forever should have been. Cornball humor against a serious background, with ladies that actually fit the moniker 'babes' who Duke rescues while being totally badass.

    All the while taking down pigcops that looked legitimately like they could kick your ass (wearing black SWAT armor while sporting semi-automatics), going though a grimy New York City setting, and having a bunch of guns (not 2, not 4, a bunch!)

    THAT is the game Duke Nukem Forever should have been.

    This:
    "There are only two ways this will end. And in both of them, you die."

    Not this:

    "Hurr hurr, I can see my dick from here!"

    Gearbox should man the fuck up and gives us a set of editing tools, we could make this game really shine if we had a robust editor.
    They should 'man up?' This, this the company that truly, honestly, deeply has no balls? This the company that shanked 20th Century Fox out of it's own moola by quietly pawning off Aliens:CM to a no-name developer, just so it could focus on it's own precious Borderlands 2?

    That company?

    Do you think that company will ever get off their fat arse and do something that makes people truly want to buy their product, instead of taking their chosen IP and rubbing it all over their ever-widening arse, and saying "You should be glad we even made this game this for you!" right after they hand it back to you full of pubes?


    This company, I think you expect too much from them. Truly I do.

    This will be a movie or at least a documentary some day, and even then I bet members of the cast will die in mysterious circumstances to add to the absurdity.
    The developer's cast version of the curse of the Poltergeist movie? Will they have spooky button-eyed dolls too?

    This turn of events is like a bad soap opera. Next thing we'll learn is that Randy is George's ex girlfriend who had a sex change. They fight like a bad couple.
