But the new version is not released yet. I strongly suggest you wait a little bit more...

Cosmo
No plungers for hands = not Cosmo. This thing looks more like the "Cosmo's angy cousin" mutant from BioMenace. What's the point of adding a "celebrity" character to the game if 90% of your audience don't know him and the other 10% don't recognize him because he's lacking his most characteristic element?

He still has plungers around his wrists, but now he can also grab weapons too.

If he does then that's good to hear, I guess. I just didn't see that "Cosmo" guy actually using his plunger-hands in the trailer. And on top of that, the real Cosmo didn't wear pants, had no black claws/hooves/whatever on his feet and his body was all green with red dots, not this yellow chin and chest. So based on the trailer alone, I'd still say that's not Cosmo.

Are the plungers ever used to cling onto walls in-game?

I'm disappointed that Milo from Crystal Caves wasn't added! Or any of the ROTT characters.

But I'll still check this out and yes, I'll go there...






...it's probably still a better "Duke" game than Forever. :dopekeen
