I really enjoyed it, although I never did finish it. I didn't understand why so many people were trashing it. Sure, the gameplay wasn't revolutionary or anything. But it retained a lot of that Duke charm that I've come to love since the early days of gaming.

I don't know. I'm not against janky games. I'm a big fan of Eastern European rpgs like those from Piranha Bytes and Spiders. I've enjoyed fps like Legendary and those of that vein.

While I didn't hate Forever like many did, the game had a whole lot of faults, and not just its lack of polish.

I too found it enjoyable but then again I was a fan of the original Duke 3D on PC. I think most of the hate was all that time in development hell and it emerged as it did. They tried, they really tried with what they had to work with and it ended up being a decent game but nowhere up to par with all the other offerings at the time. That game, exactly like it is, had it released 3-4 years sooner then it prob would have fared better in terms of critical response.

Duke should have ended at Duke Nukem 3D.

Really fun game with lots of glitches but still very fun, that slapping level was ridiculous
Just a few will understand it , because it was so wrong yet so right XD

Would love to see a remake with lots of physics lol

locomorales922d ago

The game was a good Duke Nukem. The same kind of immature humor, gameplay and plots from average to bad. The blame for perception is not Forever's. People need to reevaluate the perception about the series, which had just one good game among all the releases and a lot of people made the exception rule.

This was the WORST game I have ever played in my life. I bought it day 1 and traded it in day 2. I had it on the 360 and the first level showed promise but as you went further into the game, there was more and more missing and not working. There was 1 boss fight that the draw distance was so bad if I walked too far away from the boss it would disappear but could still shoot at me and hurt me and all I was able to see was the walls to the sides and the skybox ahead of me. SO SO BAD. I finished the game and I had no desire to keep playing it, even tried online but it was lame. DUKE 3D was great, ran good on most PCs, had interesting levels and was in some ways ground breaking. DUKE FOREVER was in so much development hell that at the end they just wanted to release this and be done with it. Gearbox (i think it was gearbox) polished up the first level and a few parts of the next few levels but as you got to the end you can see that they either gave up or expected the player to give up and never make it that far.

Good on them doing this at least.

“we’re offering a severance package that includes six months base pay and in the US/Canada/Brazil six months of Epic-paid healthcare. We’re offering to accelerate people’s stock option vesting schedule through the end of 2024 and are giving two additional years from today to exercise the options. In the US we’re also offering to vest any unearned profit sharing from their 401k. And we’ll provide benefits including career transition services and visa support where we can.”

I wonder how much of a bonus the CEO will get after this decision?


Would be "too much" for us, but probably it's "not enough" for the greedy bastard...


Epic makes way too much money to have to lay people off of the spent that money smartly. Tim wasted money on exclusives for their store when it could have gone to paychecks for people.

Epic put all their eggs in one basket with fortnite, they should have continued with the development of unreal tournament and got that game going as an arena shooter that's free to play with a huge cosmetic cash shop.

But your CEO knows what their doing.... laying off people so the board doesn't see exactly how much you stuck. The usual playbook.

Xbox is definitely the house of RPGs and it´s getting bigger and better by the day!

Fable will be fantastic!

I hope to see the following at Microsoft’s June games showcase:

Contraband (3rd party exclusive)
ID Software
Machine Games
The Coalition
Ninja Theory
The Initiative
Double Fine

Im sure we won’t see all these studio’s projects but at least 5 of them would be nice.

Sciurus_vulgaris23h ago

I’m surprised Gears 6 hasn’t been announced by the Coalition as of yet. Gears 5 released 4 years and the Coalitions hasn’t another AAA title since then, excluding the co-developed Gears Tactics.

Lightning7720h ago(Edited 20h ago)

Todd hinted at Indiana Jones being at next year's E3.

I heard Contraband is going through some sorta rework. I don't really have much hope for that game at this point in time.

Btw Gears 6 is in full development they took time away to learn Unreal Engine 5. Yeah... If we're going off of Immortals Of Aveum performance. They have allot of work ahead of them.

I’m with you, but you had to know that comment wouldn’t be popular here lol

The house of western RPGs. There, I fixed it for you

Crows9022h ago(Edited 21h ago)

Not even accurate though. They haven't made a single RPG yet. Starfield is barely an RPG as it is...there's no role picking unlike in elder scrolls games...especially the older ones. No skills...no attributes...just perks.

Imagine baldurs gate 3 where all you get to pick are feats.

Sonic188121h ago(Edited 21h ago)

Starfield was probably the worse RPG from Bethesda. Especially when it comes to review scores on Steam

All games are RPG if you think about it. You play the role of a character and do the stuff required to win the game.

Technically speaking.

Zeref23h ago(Edited 23h ago)

I couldn't be happier about that. I heard even Infinity Ward is working on an RPG. I am hyped af to see what they can do outside of CoD!
