It's getting plenty of hype online, but I'm calling it now - this game will be one of 2011's biggest disappointments.

lociefer3737d ago (Edited 3737d ago )

i agree with u , altho i would really like to be proven wrong and that it gets good reviews

kancerkid3737d ago

So why do people want this game to fail?

Gearbox has the development reins, they are pretty good.

nycredude3737d ago

I love how they blur our the ass on the dancing girl and they you see "We're fucking bringing it"!


Peppino73737d ago

Its obviously gonna be an instant classic. /s

young juice3737d ago

dude. did you watch this trailer? i thought this game was gonna be crap after watching those really old cam vids....but now

im gonna keep an eye on it

Phenix_Rising3737d ago (Edited 3737d ago )

I watched the trailer and loved it, but I think he means it will be one of the biggest disappointments because of how long it's taking to make. Just look at the reviews for Alan Wake, Splinter Cell Conviction and GT5, many reviews kept bringing up the "After 5 years" comment.

Trust me, when the reviews for this game hit you will be seeing tons of headlines labeled "Was 12 years worth it", "After a long 12 years how does DNF shape up", etc.

EDIT:@Raendom - I doubt it will show 12 years worth of quality, to my knowledge no such game exist, but I don't doubt Gearbox. I think DNF will turn out great.

Raendom3737d ago (Edited 3737d ago )

@Phenix.... I dunno if this really counts as a FFXIII type of let-down. It shouldn't REALLY show 11 years worth of quality imo, if it's a 2 year polished game... That's just fine. Would be nice for Duke to destroy CoD and become the next big thing (but I doubt it).

hades073737d ago

I dont think you are going to hear the "more than 5 years" comment so much for the reviews for this game for a couple of reasons. 1. The game continuously pokes fun at its long development cycle. As long it doesn't do it too much, it should provide a few chuckles and 2. development on the game actually stopped and then switched developers, none of that happened with the other games mentioned.

Ever since Borderlands I think Gearbox found their calling in making light-hearted, humorous games, and based on the trailers I don't think Duke could be in better hands.

nix3737d ago

wow.. that was really lame. it took them 12 years to bring it... no wonder the graphics look pre-historic.

hennessey863737d ago

I wouldnt go that far, im hoping there will be a demo though

Phenix_Rising3737d ago (Edited 3737d ago )

They honestly don't look that bad, sure they're not the greatest but they're not bad either. Graphics don't mean everything in a game, Gearbox did amazing work with Borderlands and I have faith they will deliver another great game just like they did with Borderlands.

EDIT: @hennessey86 There's going to be a demo, if you bought the Borderlands GOTY Edition you get early access, but it will still be available to everyone at one point.

nix3737d ago (Edited 3737d ago )

of course, i was exaggerating. but it certainly looks like PS2/Wii game.

AND MODS... can you rectify "nix replied to your...." alert. i certainly don't want an alert for my own reply. thanks.

Phenix_Rising3737d ago (Edited 3737d ago )

No again. Sometimes I wonder if people forget what PS2/Wii games look like.

DNF Demo Build

MGS3 Full Game

You're going to tell me those have the same level of graphics? That was just being nice enough to use a game with good graphics on PS2 like MGS. If I would have used GTA or something it would be even worse.

likeaboss3023737d ago


They look the same to me! ;) LOL

Seriously though while might not be pushing the graphical edge it's not terrible by any means.

nix3737d ago (Edited 3737d ago )

phoenix_rising (by the way you got your spelling wrong), i was talking in general.

@bpmurr: i swear.

EDIT: ok... i phenix is correct. as phenix sent me a mail with a link. q;

MrChow6663737d ago

I agree, I was dissapointed by the ugly graphics, the game looks like a low budget crap

nycredude3737d ago

To be fair Gearbox is not known for their graphical prowess.

After all this waiting, most people probably watched the trailer just to make sure it was real.

Sitris3737d ago (Edited 3737d ago )

No, just no. How the he'll can you say duke is better than everything, there have been far better game franchises that have released since this series that are more intelligent and less sexist and stupid. Duke nukem is an old relic that needs to adjust to new gaming life or just die all together. I love gearbox, but I will not be expecting anything but rehashed crap from this game.

Xristo3737d ago

He's just paying respects. I'm sure that most would agree that there is probably better gaming franchises. It's like saying Voltron is the best cartoon ever because of the memories though when you look at it was the best! lol

dalehitchy3737d ago

lol... i just watched it...
pretty funny trailer... looks like it will be a good enough game.. though 12 years in the making... any flaws and people will complain... so .. i think it will be a flop...

ill prob get it anyway... jus for the giggles...
at least id be able to say i played the game that took forever to make..

Question - Was this game always name Duke Nukem: Forever or was this added when they realised it was taking so long to make

Xristo3737d ago

It's been "Forever" since being announced back in the mid to late 90s....check this cover of November 1997 PC Gamer:
