With the lawsuit, that woud be a really stupid thing to do. Pissing off your ex boss is one thing, defying a court order freezing the game as part of the assets being disputed is another.

This Duke Nukem Forever thing has turned into an entirely different and unfunny joke.

Jesus, Duda, did DNF stand you up for prom or something? Lots of venom, mang. Lots of venom.

Maybe the venom is because some people are fed up with the total incompetence of the people at 3DRealms.

A mod?

Mod? No, its an official page that Scott Miller set up. Something legit. Who knows what yet, though.

I'm gonna take the safe bet and say nothing that will ever happen.
post #59 of 143
Interesting in that it references the football stage shown in the leaked concept art. Not interesting in the sense that this game can never be released.

If Chinese Democracy can come out, Duke Nukem D-Day Forever whoozywhatzit can come out, too, dammit!

but where is the fun in that? Need some balls of steel.

I'd heard everything got seized for the bankruptcy proceedings. With the current resurgence in popularity that Alex mentions, it only makes sense that they'd try to complete the game to recoup some of their losses if it's in any sort of state where it could be finished up in a reasonable time frame.

Of course, you'd be a sucker to bet there's enough of a game there to be completed in a reasonable amount of time. So maybe this page is the first step in a campaign to try to get people's interest up again to try and convince the masters of the pursestrings to put enough money into it to finish it up regardless of what state it's in.

And it will be about as good.

I'm pretty sure there are a couple games in the duke nukem universe that are being made. I think one is for the DS.
post #65 of 143
There's a fascinating article up on Wired about how we'll never see Duke return.
post #66 of 143
The picture of the giant Duke Nukem marble in-lay speaks a thousand words.
post #67 of 143
I loved that all the new technology was going towards creating better looking virtual strippers.
post #68 of 143
Great article. Such a shame really.
post #69 of 143
Another developer ruined in the quest for the fabled Mons Venus stripper algorithm. Like fair Icarus, they were bound to fall to earth screaming.

This validating my theory that game developers only care about tits. Oh, the humanity.
post #71 of 143
Holy shit, thanks for the heads-up on that article.
post #72 of 143
Yeah, thanks for the link. I would have never seen that. Really interesting stuff. Unfortunately, it's pretty much in line with what most of us thought.
post #73 of 143
Yea, thnx for the heads up, very interesting. I didn't realize they had actually been working on it straight since it was announced in 97, thats even more amazing than Daikatana. I think that game had the same problems with Romero trying to play technology catch up. I almost hope Take 2 wins the rights, the current owners are pathetic.

The article said the creators declined the $2.5 million offer to finish the game, since they wanted $6 million, but take 2 is still suing for this amount?
post #74 of 143
But you kind of feel like they actually were close to getting it released (at least according to the sympathetic tone of the story) and that Take 2 kind of pulled the rug out from under them a bit.

I can certainly understand Take 2's trepidation but if they did screw them over just to try to get the Duke Nukem license that would still be disappointing.
post #75 of 143
According to the article, they were close to finishing the game several times. It's not Take 2's fault at all.

That picture shows the happiest bunch of laid off employees I've ever seen.

Because I don't deal in pirated goods I never grabbed it and looked at it, but I have a friend who was playing Duke Nukem Forever about a month back. Obviously it was unfinished, but it was out there to be grabbed somewhere.

Gearbox? FUCK. YES.
post #79 of 143
The amount of crazyness and dark humor Gearbox could do with this excites me to no end.

$20 Million dollars was spent?! good lord.

If anybody can salvage something from the trainwreck, it's Gearbox.
I have a feeling that it is going to be back to square one, though. At least they won't change engines on a never ending basis the way the 3d Realms did.
But this is still a rumor, though.
And I note that apparently the 3d Realms crew is totally our of the picture.
post #83 of 143
The snippets of footage that were released when it finally bit the dust actually looked pretty awesome. So I'm hoping Gearbox is doing a lot of stitching together and not too much overhauling.
post #84 of 143
Weird. I'm so disgusted by how Gearbox treated PC players on Borderlands for so long that I can't get excited about this. Maybe things vastly improved after I stopped paying attention, I don't really know. Rampant cheating, hacked weapons (and servers), the ability to corrupt somebody else's save files if they had the misfortune to join the games of certain hackers who had apparently screwed their files up which bled to your files if you joined their game, the horrible incorporation of Gamespy for multiplayer, the near impossibility of playing private games with friends over the internet, their poor decision to include additional DRM to their DLC even when downloading through Steam.

Playing Borderlands single player I enjoyed it. Playing multiplayer when all the stars aligned was a blast. Seeing the massive issues (and more importantly their horrible communication about VERY SLOW fixes) turned me off of them as a game design company completely.

That's not an astronomical figure for a modern "AAA" game, from what I understand

Its actually barely AAA in the shooter genre. Virtually every AAA shooter in the last years, unless you consider Bad Company 2 triple A, has been well beyond that.
And not just the Call of Duty series.

Not to mention RPGs, MMORPGs and other money-hogs.

Right, no doubt. I think I remember reading that ASSASSIN'S CREED cost 140$ million do develop.

*edit- woah wrong thread like a mofo.
post #89 of 143
I hope that...Duke Nukem Forever, does arrive, sooner than later. I would love a...compilation of Duke's earlier games though! At this rate...DNF, will arrive on the next gen xbox!

It's a colossal waste of money for a unreleased game, though, for sure. Especially before marketing. Halo 3 / Modern Warfare 2 cost something like $50 million to develop, though advertising was several times that, no doubt.

If DNF started from scratch today, $20 million would be a reasonable (if somewhat generous) budget. But if you average out what it should have cost over the last 13 years, keeping in mind that it might still be cancelled, it's a pretty ridiculous amount of money to flush down the toilet.

I was thinking for a game in development since 1998 and the fact that it was never released seemed like a major loss.
post #92 of 143
Word on the street is an announcement about this at PAX tomorrow.
post #93 of 143
And there's more and more.

Official?
post #94 of 143
Hoo boy.
post #95 of 143
Yeah, Kotaku's got an article and they're saying that there will be a playable demo on the floor at PAX.

Can't believe that this may finally get released.

Some sort of live stream going here.

ETA: WTF!?!?! Live streaming but no video. What is even the point of that then. You suck 2K.
post #96 of 143
I'm getting video...

EDIT: Never mind, I see what you mean now. People can take pics but no video? Shit.
post #97 of 143
Well, they had a presentation video but they then turned off the stream for it before. Now they're kind of showing it as people play.
post #98 of 143
Hard to get much out of that gameplay footage, but it looks like a standard sci-fi FPS. The developer guy guarantess it'll be out next year. I'm sure I'll play the demo, at least.

I am betting the Gearbox PR guy is praying "Please, Please, no delays in the release" because he is the guy who will have to handle the shitstorm of ridicule that will hit if DNF is delayed again.
post #100 of 143
What do you guys want from this game? I'm just curious.

The main things I loved about the original were the creative weapons and especially the amount of interactivity in the game world. I really hope Gearbox pushes those things to the next level.
The humor never did much for me really, especially since most of the good lines of dialogue were from the Evil Dead movies and They Live. ETA- Yeah I realize there was more to the humor than that, but other than stepping on shrunken bad guys it never struck that nerve with me.
