In for 360. I wanted this when it was first announced but no way I was spending $100+. But now I have to get rid of my used 360 copy that I bought months ago.
Let's go O's!

For anyone who wants free shipping and has a .edu e-mail address, just sign up for Student Amazon Prime. http://www.amazon.co...ent/signup/info

I'm going to pick up the PC version just to hold on to. I got the PS3 version for $6.99 from GF.

I bought the PC version to hold onto for a few years. Let's take a gamble to see if the value of an unopened copy of this crap game lasts. :)

Keep in mind that you have to check to make sure Prime will cover all your shipping costs in your particular region. If you sign up for Prime and it doesn't cover free shipping to Hawaii. for example, it turns out to be a worse deal than having no Prime. That is why the University of Hawaii students were in an uproar some time back.

As god awful as this game is, the CE is actually not bad.

I paid $8 or so and it was totally worth more than that. Quality on the CE "add-ons" is pretty good for the price, I'm slowly building a poker chip set from these CEs :P. The duke bust is a fun little conversation starter at work, it seems basically everyone who worked in IT in the 90s knows the duke!

Paid $5 for the PS3 version....had incredibly low expectations for the game....and STILL felt ripped off. Yeah, it's that awful.

I ended up getting two. :P One to hold on to and the other to open so I can display some more game memorabilia in my office. Even though I didn't care for the game so much the items that come with this package are pretty cool, especially if you are an old school Duke Nukem fan.

Thanks for that information, I wasn't aware of that.

Where does it tell how many are left? I see people mentioning that, but I've never seen where it tells unless it is down to like 15.

add one to your cart. Then edit the quantity to 999 and update the cart.

If it is a 'no limit' item, it will show the actual count.

Since the xbox version is limit 3, you can no do this trick on that version.

Thanks, the Xbox version was the one I wanted to know about... so oh well. Still, this trick will come in handy in the future. I was just holding off on ordering for a couple days because I thought I might be able to bundle another game with it for FSSS, but it looks like I'll just have to add batteries or something.

This is just too much swag to pass on at $16, the book alone might go for this much under different circumstances. I guess the fact that I actually finished the 360 version and didn't totally hate it sweetens the deal.

BTW, I love how this plus the guide puts you at two cents under FSSS.

And quit complaining about free shipping and just get Amazon Prime! SO worth it. Especially since you get tons of free streaming TV and movies on PS3 with it.

Honestly, I don't think I order enough from Amazon to take advantage of Prime. And when I do order from them, it's usually no problem to find something I really want that gets me up to free shipping (in this case Showcase Presents: The Spectre, which I've been holding out for and put me @ $25.50).

The vast majority of streamable movies and shows, including anything recent, are not free to stream with prime. Just fyi.

If I'm correct, you don't get the option of streaming when using a free Prime account of any sort.

I loved DNF as well. But we are a different breed of gamer.

If you grew up playing the 90s pc shooters, like DN3D, you watched this game be made for 13-14 years.

The truth is if you knew what to expect from the game, you enjoyed it. Randy (gearbox) specifically bought this game so he could release it to the world. He even referred to it as a greasy hamburger... Thats because he just wanted the game to be released after all the years of changes, money lost etc etc. To me its more of a piece of gaming history. When you are playing it you realize that. And if you are a fan of Duke, you cant help but smile the whole time listening to his old school one liners.

Its a game that feels like 2002 but that was the point. And when you beat the game you unlock all those videos about the games history and development process. Makes you appreciate it even more.

So if you took DNF for what it was, a quick modern Duke romp and a piece of game history, then chances are you enjoyed it.

But to me I could have simply bought it for Multiplayer alone. I put over 50 hours into the Mplayer on Xbox 360. It played like an old school FPS with Dukematch. It was fantastic. Great maps and simply just awesome to play Duke with updated gun models and graphics. Even the most nostalgic Duke fans should have enjoyed that. I literally just stopped playing the Mplayer a couple months back after almost a whole years worth.

Put those singleplayer charm and the surprising multiplayer, it was my guilty pleasure game of the year.

The reality is Gearbox grabbed the game to release as a piece of history... and now that they own the Duke Nukem rights, then go nuts making a real, good, fleshed out Duke title.

As for this deal finally a price point to pick it up at. Didnt realize GS has the 360 version for 19.99. Will be heading there tomorrow. Would like one of these to keep sealed.
