    Thanks for sharing but....


    ...I'm not impressed to say the least. Is that how a game that has been in development for 12 years should look ??! I KNOW it's a Duke Nukem game and therefore should not be revolutionnary in its gameplay and all but, come on...Why the fuck is it taking that long then if it's just that kind of game ?

    I predict a highly forgettable FPS à la Prey. I really hope I'm wrong.

    I read a quote a while back where the developers stated that they stopped reaching for the skies and just make a goddamn Duke Nukem style shooter instead of the ultimate AIDS and cancer cure they'd been trying to make. They've been through a lot of iterations to get where they are today. That explains some of the wait.
    It's kinda like Team Fortress 2, I guess.

    Also, I'm too lazy to go find that quote...

    the first time i read about Duke Nukem Forever coming out, it was a PC Gamer cover story i read at my lunch table in fourth grade. needless to say, my excitement has died down over the last 11 or so years.

    Duke Nukem Forever (in production)

    Now, it has been over 11 years since Duke Nukem forever's (in production) development started. Last year, they released some screenshots in the Duke Nukem forever (in production) official site
    Link:
    http://www.3drealms.com/duke4/

    Will this game be ever done ? Or will it become a mythological being ? a ghost that will haunt the gaming history forever ?

    IF it is done, will it even be good ? Or will it be Daikatana ?
    CAN a game be good after so many revisions and post-ponings ?

    I miss Duke Nukem, and i hope this game will be published. When its done :roll:

    It'll get done.

    It'll probably be good.

    Then again, I'm not expecting Jesus Mk. II here; just something along the lines of Duke Nukem 3D.

    DNF will never get done. Ever.

    It's vapourware at it's finest.

    I guess eventually every developer has worked on Duke Nukem Forever at some point, a sort of status thing.

    I don't think it'll ever be done either

    At this point it's 3D Realms' longest running joke.
    I honestly think they're just screwing with us.

    "Somehow the guys at Game Informer magazine discovered Duke Nukem Forever's launch date before I did," joked Randy Pitchford, president of Gearbox Software and executive producer of Duke Nukem Forever. "But I cannot imagine any better video game news source team than Game Informer to reveal the moment of truth for the most inconceivable, incorrigible and inspiring turn around story in the history of the video game industry – the coming of Duke Nukem Forever on May 3, 2011."

    “The moment fans all over the world have been waiting for is almost here,” says Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “May 3, 2011 marks Duke’s return as he unleashes his brash and brutally honest wit on the world. His return is going to be epic and one that will make video gaming history!”

    May? Darn, I was hoping it'd arrive before my holidays ended.

    Still, if they announce even the slightest delay, then it'll never be released ever again. That game has a curse upon developers.

    hmm though I cant imagine how it would be with a finished duke. Got somehow used to that kind of hoax/joke. You know Duke 4 Ever ... or Its done when its done and such.

    The release will most likely spawn a lot whine, because the game doesn't reach the expectation that people have build up over the years.
