I don't know when Duke 3D comes out, but it's 12:03 right now, and I'm sitting here constantly checking the marketplace. I wonder if it's releasing at 3:00 a.m. Eastern (midnight central), or soon.

SHITTTT

I'm guessing like another 5-6 hours so you might want to find something to do or just sleep :)

What time zone are you in Chada? Like I posted I'm in eastern (Florida) and the games are usually up when I get up 5am my time. Take your time zone and calculate the difference.

I remember getting Boom Boom Rocket the second it came out at about.. 2:30 am?

I dunno. I mean, even if I got up at 5:00 am, and the game came out at 4:00 am, that's still an hour. I want to beat the single player before everyone starts jumping online, since the amount of people getting it at launch is going to be minimal.

Acording to the Devs that frequent the Xbox forums, they say the average release times are around 1-2AM PST time so you folks on the EST coast are looking for it to launch at 4-5AM. Anyhow another 2 or 3 hours and with any luck we will be out there stomping some alien ass. Well our fellow dukes the first few hours ;p

4-5 am?

That's cool like a chill bean man. I'm just finishing up episode 3 of DOOM. That'll gimme enough time to run over the last episode, maybe play some duke on my pc.

Here's the deal....

WHEN THE GAME COMES OUT, I WILL HOST MATCHES FOR ONLINE.

Join. If no one joins, because there is a lack of people getting it, I will just do single player.

If you want to play DUKEMatch though, just FR me, and invite me to a private chat or something.

Better yet, you can FR me now.

Yeah, that looks like an alright feature. But I've played the game so many times that I'm going to blow through it in about 3 hours.

Speaking of blowing through games, just finished Episode 3 of DOOM.

Onto episode 4!

Honestly the first time I beat Duke 3D was a few weeks ago, and only the origional 3 Episodes. Well thats not true I co-op'd the 64 version with a buddy of mine some 8 years back.

But before that I hadnt played the PC version since hell 98-99 or close to that.

So its still kinda new in my memory, and Ive yet to really run the 4th episodes so thats gunna be a fun run through.

I never beat Duke cause I only had the free demo off a PC Gamer disc. I've been waiting a decade to play the full game!

I'd get it but I only have 50MS points left and no money to buy points. Time to kick ass and chew bubblegum but I'm all out of gum :p.

I got my microsoft points last night so I can download it once I got up. I
got up at about 6:30 AM and it was on so the marketplace must update around 6. The Inside Xbox updates around 4 AM.

I already lost the #1 Single Player, but I'm going to nab the first to 200.

Yeah, I was just looking for you, but now you're at #12. Congratulations on being #1 at all, though! Quite a feat.

09-24-2008, 01:43 PM
Yup, I stopped playing Single Player to get the 500 kills online.

I have 29 left, and then I'm done with online achieves. All that's left is to beat the last two remaining episodes and I'm the first to 200 the game.

The guy below me in second place hasn't even started online, I'll beat him by a long shot, I think.

Nicely done Amazon :) ever deathmatch game I got into was lagging like crazy :( and well got right near end of a level in Episode 2 and it lost connection so kinda gave up on that for now :(

Really wish I had finished this on PC, I've really no idea where I'm going half the time.

Yes, I was one of the guys who stayed up until 4:01 A.M. Eastern time for this game to become available through Xbox Live, and then a buddy and me played this game for a good hour. Of course I had to go to bed to be at college and work today or else I would have played longer. It's definitely an awesome game that brings back some good memories! :uzi:

It's not very hard, all you have to do is be efficient and completing the levels, and not wasting time trying to fight enemies you know you can't kill with the amount of health you have. I also had to lower the difficulty a little bit for the end of the third episode.

Any tips on Fusion Station? I'm pretty sure we are near the end of it, just after you kill that electric thing and go up the lift there is just a big gap and can't get over :( can't see any where for a Jetpac or anything.

Edit:
Just randomly thought try Steroids and well that worked :D
