iono if this is the right place to bring this up, but I think itd be nice if this game also focused a bit on street based gangs rather than so much on the international gangs. Gangs like bloods and crips, with colors, and also ethnic gangs like ms-13 nd tiny rascals gang.

haha in my whole life ive never seen any international gangs (mafia, etc) in real life, and ive only seen 1 biker gang (on a trip out west lmfaoo). But I see street thugs js about every day.

I like what u guys did with the latino and black models, I think more of those would be nice.

I noticed you have almost no white street gangsters except for the biker gangs lol.

And the asian gangsters r kinda mispresented lol. honestly ive never heard of a japanese schoolgirl gang. -.- try something like dubc, trg, abz, etc.

Haha this is js my opinion, aside from that I like wut ur trying to do, this game sounds really interesting lol.

First off no publisher on earth will touch a game based on real world gangs...

The gang types are obviously stylized, and the japanese girl gang is a joke...ever see the movie Kill Bill? Ever heard of it?

Just becasue you've never seen anyone in the mafia doens't mean that it doesn't exist LOL...though today obviously there are not gangsters walking around in pinstripe suits like they did in the 1920s. Again, it's stylized.

There are irish gangsters, italian, and biker...there is no such thing as 'white'...just mixtures of the various caucasion races that came to a country.

There are other issues with what you talk about but the above explanation should do the job. Thanks for taking to the time to post!

Ah your black dudes can be your Bloods/Crips/GD's and your latin dudes can be your Latin Kings/MS-13. I don't think they're that wildly different.

As for other ethnic gangs, well I touch myself thinking of the erotic possibilities of another Asian gang (triads?) and a Jamaican Posse type gang (rastafarian stereotype?) but goddamnit, this game is taking long enough already and since we basically got 1 guy and his small support artists team,etc. working on this, goddamnit Duke Nukem will come out before this game does if it has any more gangs. Goddamnit!


Maybe in an expansion or something.... eh Danny? Wink

In-game you can craete a gang called 'The Crips' and make them black...i bet that will be one of the first.

Yea, I do need the triads on motorbikes xD Also some kind of jamacian/rastifarian gang would be perfect.

The game's gangs are supposed to be ethno-stereotypes.

I've talked in a previous thread about doing 3 new gangs and a bunch of new weapons as an 9.99 or 19.99 add-on...

You could do like a hippy gang, they would drive around in their hippy vans and sell LSD and weed. Only problem would be they wouldn't have any weapons... Confused

Hmmm how about a Clockwork Orange style gang? Yeah they wouldn't really be making mad $$$ like the other gangs, but they could get like a rape bonus or something....

I'm running out of ideas now... a Dutch gang made up of midgets?

add the whole function of being able to put contracts on gang members and cops etc.. add a whole new thing to that. would be pretty fuckin awesome.. the skins for the group would be pretty awesome to.

I didn't put a date on it? and who says 2 months after the game is out? why not 1 month, or 3 months -_-

I'm probably going to just get a job at a game studio I've got some interesting things going on there lately, we'll see how that goes...but I'll probably take some time off after this...depends how well it goes over with people.

But yea there are 1000 different gang types that can be in the game...I was limited by my $$$$.
