Oh god not another!I can only take so much.

360ICE1358d ago

Yes, not another one! I can barely keep up with a new Duke Nukem coming out every twentieth year!

"Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction" for PC & Playstation. Top down action RPG. Unreal Engine."

I'd love a new Duke that does it right, but : http://www.complexmag.ca/vi...

"Give us a Duke game without strippers, a great sinister villain than can break Duke (Think Bane from DK:Rising), a slightly older, and way more badass/gritty Duke, and a galactic plotline that can be taken seriously, and I’m sold!"

That sounds horrible. This guy doesn't know what Duke Nukem is about. Duke Nukem needs to be funny and over the top or else it's not even worth the effort. Instead he wants to make yet ANOTHER gritty grimdark bland shooter.

Duke Nukem without humor and misogynistic themes, is like Batman without gadgets and the batmobile.

Timesplitter141357d ago

a new Duke Nukem should avoid misogyny, and that doesn't mean it can't be funny

Not hating on anybody who liked Duke Nukem games, but WHO is actually asking or wanting a new Duke Nukem game ?

You know why Duke Nukem was cool ? Because there were NO other FPS games really at the time.

There was no competition.

DN is one of the most overrated IP's in the history of gaming.

Yes I've played them....never been a huge fan though, but does anybody want another generic shooter?

Not just any generic shooter, but THE generic shooter.

Timesplitter141358d ago

Duke Nukem isn't generic at all.

1- It has a character that we can remember, which is something 99% of other FPSs can't manage to do.
2- It's funny, compared to the generic "grimdark" FPS
3- It has creative and fun weapons, like the freezer and shrink gun

MetaReapre1358d ago (Edited 1358d ago )

But in a world full of generic fps's today we need a good duke nukem game to lighten up the mood. Duke is funny, memorable, and all around kick ass and if they can do it right, I will love the devs forever! Lol

Edit: sorry I had to edit out a couple things. I was too high off of hearing another duke nuke coming out to know what I was saying. Lol

Eyeco1358d ago (Edited 1358d ago )

Why all the disagrees he has a point, Duke 3D was a fun game don't get me wrong I had fun with it back in the day but the game was never doing anything original, In all fairness, take away Duke Nukem's F**K YOU attitude and what do you have ?

Games like Quake, System Shock and Half-Life were light years ahead of Duke 3D, the game was pretty dated by the time it came out, seriously people need to take the nostalgia goggles off, Duke 3D fun game for sure but compared to other games at the time it was dated, just an overglorified Doom mod nothing else.

"Not hating on anybody who liked Duke Nukem games, but WHO is actually asking or wanting a new Duke Nukem game?"

- For one, oldschool gamers who remember what fps games were like in their "golden age," whether it be for the gameplay they miss, or simply for nostalgia. For two, it isn't so much about wanting a Duke Nukem game as it is wanting a good shooter. As long as the game delivers a solid experience, it will gain the interest of players.

"You know why Duke Nukem was cool ? Because there were NO other FPS games really at the time.

There was no competition."

- DOOM
- Hexen
- Heretic
- ROTT
- Wolfenstein 3D
- Quake

That list contains many of the "grand daddy" of FPS games. The games that paved the way for what we have now, and games that have become classics - games people still play today. All of these games were available either they year Duke Nukem 3D released, or before, and this is just what I could think of off the top of my head. This list is the epitome of "quality over quantity."

Also, it was less about competition back then, and more about devs just wanting to make games. The landscape wasn't plagued with multi-national companies battling for market share, and FPS was virtually a PC only genre.

"DN is one of the most overrated IP's in the history of gaming."

- regardless of your opinion on the game, it is recognized as one of the classic shooters. It would help if your are actually old enough to have played it new when it released on PC, so you could have a better appreciation for it.

"Yes I've played them....never been a huge fan though, but does anybody want another generic shooter?"

- Yes, they do, which is why COD sells shitloads every year...that being said, The Duke is far from generic, especially compared to shooters of today. Generic is pretty much every other shooter released in recent years.

"Not just any generic shooter, but THE generic shooter."

- That would be COD... The last time COD was a good game, was when it was still based in WWII...

Just because the last one sucked doesnt mean anything. Look at the new aliens game or the new tomb raider for good examples. Duke is an old time legend like mario is today. Mostly to us who gamed on pc back in the doom days but duke nukem 3d made its way to n64 and was just as fun if not more fun than goldeneye.

Duke Nukem please and make it good this time!

Snookies121358d ago

The last one had been redone so many times throughout the years, Gearbox was basically stuck with parts of coding that had been redone again and again over the years. They were pressured to get it out, because frankly people didn't believe it would ever come out. That's why the last one was rushed and not done right.

Now that they can start from scratch and take their time with it, I'd say it has a very good chance of being good.

killbillvolume121358d ago

IMHO it was a massive mistake them taking on Duke Nukem and releasing it in their name. I also am a little iffy with gearbox with what happened to the alien game so right now im in a wait and see reviews approach.

Timesplitter141358d ago

"That's why the last one was rushed"

I understand what you mean but it's kinda funny to say that a game 12 years in the making was "rushed"

Locknuts1358d ago

A big smile just came over my face for some reason. I guess I still have hope for another great Nukem.

Pintheshadows1358d ago

Ok, well if this is developed properly and takes things from Borderlands (not the gameplay but its spot on humour that isn't just off in every way like Forever) then this could be good.
