The game is now available for pre-order. Looks like a pile of crap, but may hold some untold promise. Should I pre-order it or should I just torrent it? Might just wait for the demo, does anyone have thoughts?

    After 14 years people are just going to buy the game to get closure regardless of if it's good or not. Plus too many people will excpect it to be amazing because of all the hype.

    I say you get the game but just go into it with very low standards. That way even the littlest thing will impress you to the point where you enjoy the game more. That's my strategy.
    Torrenting is your choice but I'm confident the game will be very funny and have lots of golden quotes which is to me, what I'm most excited for.

    I think it looks bad, but then again I've never been a fan of the DN series.

    Torrent the game.

    Then torrent this untold promise.

    And if it's just a beta code just wait for the original game.

    I haven't really been looking forward to it because I didn't play it as a kid so it holds no nostalgic memories for me.
    But, the trailers look awesome, mainly because it's different from all the 'HURR DURRR REALISM' shooters these days.

    bahhh! nonsense!

    You can rest easy knowing most, if not, all people that left 3D Realms (when they closed down) joined GearBox.

    Plus GearBox was assigned to finish making the game which was pretty much done by that time so the spirit of 3DR lives on within them.

    Honestly, I think it will be a complete flop. I believe it will cater to the new-generation of gamers, which is fine seeing as I highly doubt most of the old school gamers really even give a damn anymore.

    Nukem was a once in a lifetime one night stand, the way I see it. It's not going to appeal to the masses near as much as when this sort of slap stick comedy and machoism was "offensive". As of now, it's either going to make a few people lol at some boob jokes, or just sail right past peoples heads out of figuring you've heard, seen, and done worse since you were a little kid.

    Despite the fact, I'll play it - just because it's one of those "I have to do this, my grandchild depends on it" situations. I'm surely not giving any money for it though.

    From the trailers I've seen so far,the game looks pretty good,regardless the engine isn't that advanced.Textures look pretty plain or sorta...unpolished enough.Nonetheless,I'll give it a shot when it comes out.
