Gearbox's Randy Pitchford has said that Duke Nukem Forever is not the game he would have made, were Gearbox to be starting on the project from scratch.
Jesus. damage control starting even before release?
This isnt damage control its honesty
read the article not the tittle -_-
STFU Randy - the game you would have made would have taken another 20 years. Edit: "Gearbox's Randy Pitchford has said that Duke Nukem Forever is not the game he would have made and with out him the game is garbage"
He´s giving credit to 3D Realms and ur telling to shut up? read the dam article.
I think you have it backwards; if Gearbox had spearheaded this project, it would have likely been done right (and on time)
Take some time to actually read articles, it might help kid.
Didn't most of 3-D realms not go to Gearbox anyways?
This is the statement: “It’s not my game,” he said. “My commitment is to make sure that I and you and we all finally get to play the game we’ve been waiting for all this time. So the commitment that I’ve made with my studio is to make sure 3D Realms’ vision is realised.” From that, the article derives "not the game I would have made" - Randy never says those words, because they can obviously be taken in the wrong context, which seems to be what Beefjack's headline is purposefully doing to get more hits...
Thanks. Lousy header once again...
then again, he's only reassuring people that this is the game 3d realms would have released
Whether this game is any good or not is largely irrelevant, 3D Realms now owns the rights to a fairly well known IP, and as long as it sells reasonably well based on hype and nostalgia, Gearbox is in a position to make more Duke Nukem games that will meet their level of quality. At the same time, Gearbox paid a lot of money for those rights and this game itself, so Pitchford isn't going to stand out in the rain singing about how bad this game might be, but he is positioning himself to say "no, this isn't what I would have done, but the next Duke Nukem definitely will be, so be ready". Plus, this game has been in-house at Gearbox for almost 18 months. It's going to be solid, regardless of whether it's actually good or not. Personally, as a 38 year old man who played hours and hours of Duke Nukem 3D, I wanna play the shit out of this game.
What this guy said...minus one year of age.
God ****, people... ... someone finally finished the game, and it's finally going to be released. It wasn't trying to be the next great coming, it was trying to be a finished product.How about we wait until they announce a NEW Duke Nukem game before you start holding it to such high standards.
