Really? I hadn't read any articles about it.
Of course, there's also the small problem that my computer won't be able to play it either... :P
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

Hasn't DN always been a standard shooter? I can think of lots of games that offer a greater degree of interactivity than what I've seen in promotional material for DNF.

That's what I thought, too.....maybe there's more to them than that? I have the ones that GoG released but I haven't gotten to play them yet.

There aren't a lot of videos or images about the interactivity of DNF but enough articles. Of course, words only go so far, but what I've heard is interesting enough.

Draw on a white board freehand, sign your autograph in a kid's book (again freehand), play an actual fully working game of pinball in the arcade, drive around a remote control car. Things like that that would be mere eye candy in any other FPS but are actually interactive in DNF.

The first and last one have been done. Playing pinball sounds cool, but what's the point? Interactivity is great, as long as it's given a purpose in the game. Otherwise I could just play pinball on Windows XP.

But I realize that those are just a few examples and not the whole gamut. Not trying to pick a fight.

I guess we'll find out if it's your schtick or not once the demo comes out.

Either way, without the interactivity the game is said to be a good 12+ hours long for experienced players. Which is more than we can say for any other FPS released for the last decade. The game is loaded with puzzles a la Half-Life not just running and gunning. It's a puzzle shooter. A thinking FPS. It's not all about the puzzles, there are some areas where you just pummel enemies with bullets for a while. But the thing is there's a lot of game here. A lot of smart and fun gaming that isn't around anymore.

I'm guessing my laptop won't be able to handle it, but I plan on trying anyway.

Now, see, that's what you should have said the first time. ;) That, I like the sound of.

Yeah, Randy has been saying over and over that DNF has pacing and sequences to break the monotony of one style of gaming. There'll be enough interesting things going on to keep your interest for those 12 hours or so. At least there better be :). But after 12 years of development I'm sure 3DR came up with enough content, which is just what Randy has also been saying. There's a lot of content. It just wasn't connected in any sort of coherent way by the time Gearbox got their hands on it.

Also, I posted the system requirements on the last page.

Ah, I forgot you had posted them. Yeah, if I try to play that my laptop is just going to laugh in my face before it lapses into a coma. :P

I acquired an FAC code on Wednesday by winning a contest with a music submission. This time tomorrow I'll be playing the DNF demo.

Demo was fun. Lots of people have issues with the graphics looking dated, the 2-weapon limit, and the regenerating health bar but we all knew this going in (or we should have, as it was stated hundreds of times before). I can't wait to play the full game.

The graphics looked dated? They look pretty sweet in all the video I've seen. Besides, people who complain about graphics are superficial (and have never played Minecraft).

People are whining about Skyrim's graphics too. I'd just ignore them.
