    You can enable invincibility after you've completed the game.

    I've made some videos involving two of the bosses if anyone wants an idea of what to expect from them.





    Here's some general gameplay from the Duke Burger level.

    I think, after waiting the better part of a decade and a half, that I'll experience the bosses first-hand myself...but your effort is appreciated! ;)

    Assuming you play it in steam then not too long ago steam added screenshot-functionality to all games with F12

    Well its not the greatest gameplay, not the greatest graphics, it suffers from consolitis, heavy scripting, big periods of not killing stuff, silly puzzles & mostly there is only one very tight path you can take.

    But there is:
    Heaps of dumb toilet humor
    Bouncing (albeit a bit low poly) boobies
    The statues are naked & cleft
    There are bits of bodies all around the place
    (Despite looking like bodies just disappear in the trailer) Additional bits of bodies, blood stains etc left strewn around by battles.
    Plenty of pop-culture parodies & Duke self references
    A bunch of stuff to interact with
    Big guns

    And I'm having a ball :grin:


    Game is much more polished than I'd expected but I'd not really been expecting so much consolitis.
    Particularly annoying is the way it tells you what button to push & when.
    Instead of just a translucent letter like in most PC FPSes you get an opaque grey/black key picture & for every interaction rather than just the first few.

    The multiplayer is very UT style, fast & explody.
    A very long list of MP achievements.
    With achievements you unlock silly hats etc for your Duke avatar to wear.
    Some stuff can be colour customised eg the shirt.

    Actually I had an Ensoniq card back in '96 but I have been picking up various bits over the years and I do have AWE32 and a DB50XG among the selection. ;)

    The vehicle is flying & spinning at that time so yeah the outside is blurred.
    Intentional effect.
    Its a bloody good motion blur effect in my opinion.

    When on foot the buildings are much clearer & are good enough looking.
    Game looks better with 'advanced' setting disabled, they put too much blur on the DoF for my liking.

    Motion blur and depth of field are usually overdone. In real life motion blur is usually out in the peripheral vision and not very noticeable. I find it disorienting when games stick these two in your face because mouse control doesn't work like my native eyeball control. ;)

    Untrue, our vision does have motion blur, camera and object both !
    Camera - try spinning around or move your head quickly to a side, you won't be able to focus on anything
    Object - shake your palm in front of your eye
