You don't acquire the rights to one of video game's most famous characters without planning on doing something great with him.
Incorrect. You don't acquire the rights to one of video game's most famous characters and then do something terrible with it!
Just let the poor duke die in peace!
Really? I mean seriously i hope they would try to make something better! I guess we will find out in another 12 years!! Duke Nukem Forever 2 Spring 2023.....pre order now
I don't think it is even possible to make it any worse unless they develop it for the N64 and release it on current gen consoles... I don't see that happening.
awesome I will pencil in the weekend of the 5th of September 2055 to play it.
what do you mean...? we all gonna die in 2012 nooooooooo im not gonna get to play it. game of the year for sure
Not only is that joke tiresome but that whole year 2012 thing has been debunked by scientists quite some time ago.
So another 12 year wait begins. Duke will be back baby!! :D
beat me to it! idk, expected to release 2023? lol
It will be great to see the next game do satire on how awful the last one was.
At least this time Gearbox will have total developement over it, rather then be left to try and fix the cr*p 3D realms left
Agreed , Duke Nukem Forever had several generations of development smeered all over it , heres hoping for an epic sequel. Im still gonna play it when i get around to it , but for now too many great games out their to warrent playing it.
I don't even know if Duke Nukem has a place any more. Half life has pretty much rendered him redundant. Had DNF released in the early 2000's it would have probably made some splash but nowadays everything that made DN3D special (interactive environment, spectacle in the level design and relatively large maps) have become staples in the industry. It's a shame because Duke Nukem had a feeling, a sort of atmosphere, that I associate with... well with fucking awesome. And I love that feeling and I love Duke Nukem. I've heard of the remake of DN3D and I applaud it but it's a pretty small scale development affair. Looks more like a mod team that's getting paid. I reckon a prequel could be fun but they really need to think about their approach because I simply can not think of a harder game to bring into modern times. And boy did DNF prove that.
Gonna need a Duke 2.0 game here and not some N64 wanna-be clone. Step it up.
Our generation won't live to see this come out, leave it for my kids to shake their heads in pity.
Due to the extremely long development cycle and the constant changing of devs. Duke Nukem Forever was a train wreck. Hopefully a new game being made fully by gearbox should be a lot better than the last game which was forgive my swearing a piece of shit that should have never been created even if the fate of the world depended on it.
I just want Gearbox to release Aliens already!
I wish they would. Duke Nukem is the only non politically correct .. anything.. left. It's refreshing.
Gearbox know Duke didn't do Dukes desired intentions so they WILL start from scratch as anything otherwise is the equivalent of burning money and then realizing its not coming back. Gearbox needs to stop announcing and start finishing. Alien Colonial marines BiA Furious 4 Borderlands 2 2 of those games have potential to become major ips in the future as long as gearbox manage to diversify the sequel of Borderlands. BiA seems to be a very odd decision but I am still interested none the less. However they have confirmed to be working on something else. http://www.gearboxsoftware....
well games can't get much worse than duke nukem forever.
Yes you can. Duke Nukem Forever was mediocre. It wasn't bad, or broken, or unplayable. You definitely could get worse than just being a disappointment.
It took over 10 years for them to make a mediocre piece of crap! people make better games in LBP2 during a few weeks.
You said you can't get much worse, right? Duke Nukem played and was fully functional. It wasn't the greatest game ever made, but it was far from the worst. I'm just saying - there most definitely could have been worse.
well I wouldn't call it fully functional since there are A LOT of bugs and glitches in every corner xD and the " it can't get much worse" comment was a response to the article if a game is good or bad is not a fact it is an opinion.
It better be because the last game was a shame.
Yeah, last game kinda disappointed me, was great to see Duke again, but it was nothing special. I spent the first few minutes fan-girling all over the place, then after about an hour, I was like, 'this is lame.' Can't believe it even took me that long. And as if the boob thing was a plan -_-
