In a stunning PAX 2010 Announcement Gearbox has announced that they own Duke Nukem. Huge news considering the finally completed and low awaited Duke Nukem Forever is finally poised for a release.
Duke will not die!!!
in other words, let the milking commence jk?
Nah. . they might have bought the rights, But the fans own Duke. Without the constant internet rumors and the hopes we all kept alive, DNF would have never seen the light of day.
It could have fallen into way worse hands than Gearbox. I'm not too keen on Brothers In Arms (I did play Hell's Highway for the easy achievements) but I love Borderlands.
or let there be DLC and sequels within our lifetimes...
I´ll drink it. I really liked Borderlands and not for its graphics, so I have high hopes for tis one.
I just hope it is good. I am not expecting a mind blowing fantastic game. But I do want it to be true to the Duke and decent enough I won't get buyers remorse.
They should make a special DLC for Borderlands with a cameo from the Duke.
good. the franchise will be in good hands now.
Just like when Naughty Dog got rid of Crash Bandicoot and Insomniac got rid of Spyro. Both of those franchises kept the quality that had even after leaving Naughty Dog & Insomniac. /s Sorry, but the only reason this game will sell is because of nostalgia. Once that wears off you'll see how bad it really is. If you take away the Duke Nukem theme then you're left with a generic shooter and Gearbox is doing nothing but ruining this franchise. -Regenerating Health -Only being able to carry 2 weapons -Sprint button replacing auto run -Melee with guns rather than your boot -Enemy spawn scripted events (ex: You can run a bit further into the level and see no enemies because the game doesn't tell you that you need to hop on a turret to spawn a turret sequence). If anything, PC gamers will have to create mods in order to fix what Gearbox screwed up.
Dude just chill out. People need to stop passing judgement on games waaayyyy before they are released. You saw a couple of off-screen videos and screenshots and you're already writing it off. You should give thanks to these guys for trying to finish what 3d realms couldn't. I mean can we atleast wait for the first review.
ENCHANTMENT! No but all jokes aside leave them to their work, they are the guys behind borderlands so it can't be that bad right?
i agree with Sandal. health regen is total bogus. from hardcore PC game to glorified console game. WE DONT NEED HEALTH REGEN!!!
Or "I'll shove it up your ass" - Duke Health regen dont mean shit in a game that isnt realistic/hardcore. Health packs wont ruin Duke like it would a Socom game where health is alot less plentiful. Health packs are old school, why have them at all? Its a old dried up seed that shouldnt be used very much if at all. Duke (Crazy over the top) = no health packs Dont see how you can act like its a big deal...seriously.
How can you piss on a moment so beautiful...I guess haters will hate...
I played Duke Nukem Forever @ PAX and it was fucking awesome. Blow it out yer ass!!
So I'll let this speak for me Sandal.
That's the only thing you are allowed to say Sandal.
sandal you got some problems man did you know that they made a really good rpg shooter last year that game even surprised me ive never seen anything like it and sold well and your sayin its garbage i agree with bullet dont judge games before they hatch
thats interesting but good news least now they can do what they need with future releases
Now it really is Duke Nukem Forever!
Long Live The King!!!
... Sons & Daughters.. It's time to.. KICK-ASS.. & chew bubble gum!! COME GET SOME!! >:D http://www.youtube.com/watc...
this sums up Duke Nukem's Badassery, he's a man of his word! :P http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Ok now lets see what you can do with it. Hopefully this doesn't turn into another Mediocre in Arms.
I see what you did there!
so Randy says "I saved DNF". no, no you didnt. Randy really annoys me.
uhh he kinda did buddeh. He worked at 3d realms on Duke 3d, and everyone involved has given him and Gearbox his blessing. This is a win win win win win situation.
Gearbox doesn't own Duke Nukem. Duke Nukem owns you.
He did. DNF is being released by gearbox, without gearbox = duke would never come out. Better than nothing--no need to over think what he said.
The good old medic-pack is needed!
yay! it's about time!
Hail the king!
glad to see Duke back
