Happy Duke Day!

Ah yes, the day has finally approached us. Duke Nukem Forever is out and... what's this? I DON'T have it yet? There is a good reason for this, so let me explain.

I pre-ordered Duke Forever back in January already, and only recently changed it to the Balls of Steel edition. This was definitely an idiotic choice on my part to change my pre-order so late, and I am now paying the consequence. I got to my local game store, but the guys who work there(some buddies of mine) said they were short on the BoS edition. They said to help the store out, they sold their BoS editions. But the thing is, the one guy said that they were keeping a copy for one guy, but he only had until 19:00 tonight to pick it up(about 4 hours from now), and if he didn't pick it up at 19:00, I could have it. So now the thing is, they gave me an ultimatum of note. "You can either get the normal game now, or wait till 7 and get the BoS". Being the fan I am, I obviously wanted the limited edition, but I also wanted to play the damn game as soon as possible. I decided to wait it out.

Sooooooo... Now I wait, a long wait indeed. But I'll keep myself busy and just wait it out. If I get the Balls of Steel edition tonight, I'll do a video unboxing for you guys and post it here. If the other guy picks it up(which I hope won't happen), I'll just get the normal edition, let you guys know I didn't get it and play the normal game.

I'll let you guys know asap if I get it or not. Stay tuned!

Baka

PS. Science went well today, thanks for the support guys!

  2. After waiting 14 years for it, i doubt any game could live up to that kind of anticipation. even if the game is amazing gamers who have waited 14 years will want something beyond anything else and i feel such an old formula such as duke cant give it to them.

  3. I'm just afraid that once you get the game, we'll never see you again.

  5. So wait, they sold YOUR preorder to help their store out? I don't even know... That would piss my custies off so bad, they would never come back. Kinda would hurt business.

  12. After 15 years, 4 hours isn't too bad of a wait.
