    All points on Duke Nukem Forever at PAX

    The thing is so big , that 2K games have set up LIVE STREAM

    http://www.ustream.tv/2kgameslive

    We do not know yet if that points to duke nukem at all , but Take Two owns publishing for DNF and 2K is a take two subsidary , but gearbox has it's main event on sunday , this live stream starts tomorrow FRIDAY , keep a look out for it after 12 AM CET. (the exact time is confusing because Washington DC is 6 hours back but the time they're reporting in is PST , but DC is not in -8/-9 timeframe , so it's weird a bit. don't rely on PST , or you'll miss it)


    Look for rumor list here on wiki at the bottom, but not all are here yet , i added them as could time was so short it was booming the interwebs so fast , the whole thing's in a massive 50 paged thread on the official forums at 3DR.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Duke_Nukem_Forever



    PARTY !

    EDIT: eee Thanks for making my first sticky ever :) , what a surprise.

    Now to update a bit since this thing happened in lightning speed:


    Here's the Life Feed from PAX if you missed:

    http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/9327658
    (you don't need to watch all parts , the girl will never show the trailer and it he does a tour all over again 5 times , but you'll find different interviews at times , i watched all 3hrs and half or how much it lasted , news is that Duke Nukem IP has been sold to gearbox , what's the 3DRs control i don't know yet. , more info on sunday at gearbox show)

    Yahoo,Wall street journal , have all front page DNF articles.

    Twitter is dominated in Duke nukem forever , it is FIRST PLACE popularity on a worldwide scale and all subcategories (i checked this first hand)


    THe last thing were waiting is TRAILER , and George's wishes for SERVER CRASH might be fullfilled :)

    EDIT 2:

    3DR sold the DN IP to Gearbox .."was handpicked to be the new home of Duke Nukem , because of their passion ..:" well they explained gearbox as trustworthy .... unlike T2 , EA or Activision

    Wait..Is Duke Nukem Forever actually finished?!

    Ok, so back in 2006 there was an interview at 1UP with George Broussard(the lead man in the development of DNF) where he was asked ''And when's that(DNF) due out again?'' George said''I think it'll be out when pigs fly''


    So recently George posted a tweet, and the only thing that the tweet had in it was this picture and no explanation:

    [​IMG]

    So... does that mean it's finished?, i have my doubt's about this game being released, but if they can get it done, im all for it.

    We all seen the video, it's partly done.

    I bet they have finished it multiple times over the 12 years. Yet, someone in house wanted it to be EPIC,

    John St. John is doing a Q&A at PAX.. which starts tomorrow! More to come soon?

    Expect it to be released through Steam.... Maybe that's one of Valve's suprises?

    "I was extrememly moved by the scene in which Duke is tearfully reunited with his daughter and then she puts on a bikini and dry humps his leg". Brilliant.

    Cannot wait to see if DNF actually comes out or not. I let down hope a long time ago, but apparently pigs can fly, so it is coming out!

    Very interesting stuff.

    I was one of the people who definitely didn't care for this game anymore, but if they can pull it off and release it which is looking like they can, then im all in for it.:)

    I only got up with duke in these last years started to realize how that game rocked, becausei didn't had web nor pc back then , played at friends hose or school pcs , ... and i was largely a RTS player in the post 2000s , had a pc but never got to duke actualy.

    But in the 90' duke nukem 3d was smoking like no other , i think you could almost smell the back of PC case how much DN3D has been burned through those machines.

    Got fueled in 2008 but then after 2009 meltdown i just couldn't beleive so i left it low, a year of a pause , this game is so damn attractive it affects life so i didn't want to waste time ... but things turned well recently.

    I know people are too excited over at 3DR where i spent this week after a long time , and to say that's bad , no it's not , but i can't sit whole day on the PC , that's really kind of retarded no?

    You know what would be awesome? If 2K Games play Never Gonna Give You Up by Rick Astley when the stream went live.

    This game will suck and Gearbox will blame Valve/Steam for it and claim they are....devil worshippers and cast an evil spell on their great Duke Nukem game.

    They should have let this project die cause no amount of awesome can fix 10 to 12 years of anticipation, failures, false claims, and bullshitery.
