"Now that Duke Nukem Forever developer 3D Realms appears to have become little more than vapor itself, the unreleased fruits of the game's art staff have been posted online, ready to be picked over."
- At E3, some other company (Epic games, for example) decides to make a little video homage to 3D Realms - Video starts, showing scenes from DN games and 3D Realms staff. - The words : "We wish the 3D Realms team the best of luck" appear on screen - BAM! Duke Nukem blows off the imaginary wall behind the text and says "What the hell are they talking about?", DN theme song starts playing - AWESOMENESS AWESOMENESS AWESOMENESS AWESOMENESS - DNF confirmed for Q4 2009, it was all just a hoax - Gamers across the globe explode
That sounds like a dream.
But damn sure would be welcomed by me. Those screenshots are not bad at all either. Increase the size to 1280 and they look pretty detailed. If that is just concept art, then then game play ought to be pretty decent. They are not the greatest thing in the world for 12 years of development, but at this point, I just want my DNF game in my hands damn it!
Cliffy B comes on stage dressed as Duke Nukem.
You just made me splooge at that concept.
if anyone were to take over the duke nukem project it would most likely be EA, i doubt epic will invest in that game...anyways I just hope that someone picks it up...this is a cash cow waiting to happen
"- Gamers across the globe explode " Reminded me of the Dave Chapelle KKK episode lmao.
No I mean the fact that 3D Realms closed was a hoax and they're still making the game
Forever Forever and RIP!
Being known for being ahead of their time, 3D Realms have obviously struggled to try and keep that title but have been left behind every step of the way as the industry has exploded with production values over the last few years. A real shame. They should have swallowed their pride and made some Marketplace and PSN titles. I think the screens look great, if a bit generic.
it looks really detailed but nothing we haven't seen before. 12 years for this? kinda weak imo.
It wasn't 12 years on one game engine. They switched game engines almost every couple of years. Maybe one to many times is all, but this last time seemed like it was going to be definite. I don't doubt that somehow this game will continue development though.
i know it wasn't strictly one game engine they were working with, but seriously, the mind set they had was just retarded. Games are constantly coming out and one upping other games in terms of graphics. Trying to constantly stay ahead of everything else in terms of graphics is just plain stupid. It's not like duke nukem is known for it's story. It's full of lame one liners and unwarranted nudity. The series blows, always has, always will. Look at super mario world on the snes, the game crushes any current gen platformer and the graphics are nothing special. The same could probably be said for goldeneye on the n64 with duke nukem forever. We'll never know though and tbh i couldn't care less that it isn't coming out. Hopefully this teaches the egomaniacs behind 3drealms a lesson.
Im completely disappointed that they took all that time and only came up with that? Myself or anyone who knows the basics of UnrealEd could use the map editor for UT3 and meet or exceed those graphics in a day or less.
Whatever. *walks off back to Killzone/Metal Gear/Halo/Gears/Crysis/Half Life whilst waiting for likes of Modern Warfare 2, quietly knowing that it and future games of great magnitude will be released around the time the developer said because they'll keep to their word, won't disappoint fans and are professionals* Edit: "And now do the right thing and sell the rights to a developer that wont keep us waiting for another 13 years."
duke nukem RIP forever
This is an example of how to fail as a company
but its there own falt, shouldn't have kept the game in development for so long. so now... RIP FOREVER
come on since when was duke about the graphics
Update: Apogee Software and Deep Silver have issued a statement to Shacknews, confirming that the situation at 3D Realms has not affected the development of Frontline Games' upcoming handheld Duke Nukem Trilogy. "Deep Silver and Apogee Software are not affected by the situation at 3D Realms," a representative for the companies told us. "Development on the Duke Nukem Trilogy is continuing as planned." - - - - - - - - some of the creatures they've designed remind me of those found in resistance 2.....
duke was (is) a badass character,..... em .. i just got a question .. if 3D realms closed... what about Duke Nukem trilogy for psp?? i was waiting for that game .__.
crackle.com and watch "theJaceHallShow" season 1 episode 1.... it is the ONLY place to see DNF gameplay and it looked NASTY... hurry! before they take it down...
This game, well from the screenies looks like it would be kinda scary, but since its Duke it will be humorous scare like Serious Sam
