3D Realms' George Broussard Tosses Out Duke Nukem Forever Information Scraps

3D Realms co-owner and regular Shack user George Broussard tonight answered questions from Shackers about Duke Nukem Forever in an inquisitive chat thread. Though he was often understandably reluctant to give many concrete details before the full media blitz begins, there are some encouraging bits.

Broussard about the engine of Duke Nukem Forever: "Unreal. I believe we branched off somewhere around the Unreal 2 time when they added static meshes. Since then we've redone the rendering 100% and it's a fully modern engine."

When asked about gibs, he said: "Shotguns pull limbs off, but not a machine gun or pistol. Explode something or set off a pipe bomb and you can remove limbs that are within splash range and take enough individual damage. But yes, gibs are back."

Duke to rest. He's old now and they will never be able to make him as fresh and cool and he once was. Rest in peace Duke.

I have to disagree Duke is hands down the coolest video game character of all time. Snake, master chief , tomb raider, etc all have to blow duke cause hes that cool all the other game characters have nothing on Duke.

Awesome find. Best part:
"Yes. But in a way that makes sense. Shotguns pull limbs off, but not a machine gun or pistol. Explode something or set off a pipe bomb and you can remove limbs that are within splash range and take enough individual damage. But yes, gibs are back."

Although I don't like the "in a way that makes sense" part since DN should NOT make sense.

"We're definitely going to record 'I'm gonna kill you old school." = Awesome.

WTF is he talking about some people not liking the teaser? I can't believe someone didn't enjoy that trailer. Dammit, there are some really strange people out there.

Been seeing a bunch of the new gamers bash it around forums, and G4's only article about it was calling it lame.

Personally, I like it, and I got a big shot of nostalgia when the old type of music kicked in during the trailer. This one's for the old school. The new generation just doesn't understand.
