A user by the name of slash000 is a very patient man. Gearbox shows their appreciation to the fan with a ton of goodies.
You bet your ass I'll be pre-ordered the next Duke Nukem game day 1 and hold on to that receipt for the next 10 years lol That's a nice set of cool stuff. I'm jealous.
Hell yes. Now that is sum swag!
Because of the LCD screen on the keyboard I am jealous.
And now the poor sap has to suffer playing the actual game.
Well that was cool of them, I'm sure the guy must've been a huge Duke Nukem fan. I don't think he cares how crappy the game is lol. Hopefully the next Duke turns out better.
DAMN i preordered it years ago too..lost the reciept years ago though after i thought it wasnt happening, friend of mine who worked at gamestop or whatever it was back then (babbages ebgames whatever) creditied towards another game..damn wish i would kept that bitch now
I'd be embarrassed to wear any of that. It would be like wearing a Haze or Superman 64 shirt.
The thing is unlike Haze or Superman 64, Duke Nukem Forever is actually a really fun game once you get past the graphics and style of it. I'm enjoying it immensely.
Would you wear a Bruce Campbell shirt? What? Bruce, who??? Ah... that's why you wouldn't wear a 'Hail to the King, Baby!' shirt.
You should try playing the game first you uneducated kid that listens to reviews all the time
"You should try playing the game first you uneducated kid that listens to reviews all the time" I don't have to listen to reviews to see that Duke Nukem isn't funny, the gameplay is nothing special and the level design is awful, and the game isn't all that polished. Even Matt Hazard did better than Duke Nukem at being funny and succeeding at being a parody, something that's supposed to be the very core of Duke Nukem's games. Maybe it makes you feel better about your game scoring almost unanimously 5/10 and lower, but there is no reason to insult me. If you like a game that is universally regarded as awful, that's fine, but don't go forcing it onto other people.
Too bad this guy waited 10 years for a game that completely bomed because of bad devopment. Gearbox should be giving away these goodies to everyone who wasted time on this game.
WAIT .......... u can preorder games 10 years before its release ? HOW ? .... i thought that u can only preorder the game once the games website says u can .... hmmm .... my brain hurts
Pre orders generally go up after a developer announces a game, which 3D did do and people started taking pre orders. Why these pre orders didn't get cancelled or changed for 10 years? well thats another mystery.
until a game is officially cnaceled a preorder is valid, if the retialer exists and is willing to accept such an old preorder is different its a nice gesture and good pr
Nice! they should of just given him a brand new PC with a custom Duke Nukem paint job. but I guess this is cool. suck it down pig
your tellin me one man preordered this game? LOL! xD
They did the right thing. Nice KB.
I know guys who pre-ordered it before this guy that picked it up this week. They didn't beg for attention though. :)
Sometimes bringing attention to yourself pays off. In this case, it paid off pretty damn well lol
That doesn't make him a respectable human being.
I never said it did, but you coming off as a complete ass doesn't make you one either.
lol, gotta agree to both 3.1.1 and 3.1.2
I'm not coming off that way... At all. I was just stating that this guy begged for attention and unjustifiably got it because he's not the only one. Rosa Parks didn't want to be the ONLY black person to get freedom.
Squeaky wheel gets the greasin.
the difference between this guys pre-order and your friends it that his is real and your friends aint. nice bed time story bro.
Jealous... I is it.
Geez, they are being extremly kind to their fans, wish I could see more of this
WTF "Duke Nukem Forever “Steroids”"
they trick ur brain into liking the game!
Its probably a container of chewing gum or candy or something. "Its time to kick ass and chew gum. And im all outta gum."
change the fact that it is a terrible game, one of the worst this gen...
Exaggerating troll is trolling. Should troll elsewhere.
No, the goodies might be good but the game overall sucks. Sorry.
It's not the worst game of this gen for 2 reasons. First, FFXIII currently holds that distinction lol. Second, the gen isn't over.
The worst game this gen is Turning Point. It makes DNF look like Skyrim. It really is that bad. We also have Legendary (same dev) and the first and second K and L games.
And I'm willing to bet you never played it. Jump on the moron train of agreeing what everyone tells you.
Just because you and some stupid critics that give hanna montana games higher scores don't like it, doesn't mean it is one of the worst games of this generation. I had more fun playing this "terrible" game than I did playing the "AAA" games of late. Besides, I can easily name 20-30 games that are far worse than Duke Nukem. Here's one for starters: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
**loyal fan says*** "No thank you"
He forgot to cancel like I did
wow that's what i say a great company. you don't see this with any game companies doing this!
Because other game companies don't take 14 years to make a sequel, so they don't have to do stuff like this
Funny because I keep all my receipts for all my games, and never have gotten anything like that :( Thats nice that they would do that to a true Duke fan though.
Damnit... if only I did the same. All that swag IS AWESOME!
No thanks I've just eaten.
hahaha I've always wanted to put that in the comment section to see what people would do.
Good, this guy deserved this stuff lol. One hell of a patient game Lol.
I smell PR stunt
I wonder how much he paid for the game back in 2001. Inflation would have taken a bite.
They wash their hands because of the negative reviews that the game has received.
Awesome stuff Gearbox! :)
Gearbox knows how to make people "fanboy" :)
I'm still blown away by this. Usually my pre-order receipts are barely visible when I go to pick up the game. Kudos slash000, enjoy the swag.
