    after this much time , and this much hype - i really don't care anymore.
    I mean thank you for the news , much appreciated to be up to date.

    but i think there is no way this game is going to be any good compared to today's standards, and all that is expected of it after more than a decade of hype.

    I'm not even looking forward to seeing this developed. I think it would be better off if they just let it die.

    imo

    or just revamp the engine with DX11 + PhysX and bring it back from the dead. Imagine Duke kicking butt with a rippling effect and the curtons wave with after effect :D

    Bacon - p? whatever the famous dialogue he says :D

    Everybody's just so pissed cause it took so long, i think when they see it , everybody will think it was kind of worth it , but I have to agree , 5 years would have been enough , since they changed engine 2 times. And I have an older firend who was in all the years sorrounding DNF and he said it was 1 day from going gold and apparently didn't.

    I hope to see it, I'm not gonna break down and cry if it doesn't happen. But I do want to hear the cheesy 1 liners and play some, if it happens great, if it doesn't, oh well.

    I saw some of the demos way back, got excited, then all bad stuff happened, it got scrubbed, but there was still code so I was extremely confused, HOWEVER the tech demo I saw was way back. They will have to update it ALOT before release. Probably pretty far out, IF AT ALL!

    I haven't played a Duke Nukem game since Time to Kill.

    If it comes out I'm going to have to play it, even if I have to spend fatty loads of $ upgrading my PC.

    That's what you call loylty , but i think that's justified how the DN3D was good , and I have no werid looks on those who are still so strong for it , I am my self but i was at the time , not so involved with it , didn't had my own pc unitl 2004 , was more console guy , I do still want to see DNF , but i am amazed how many are still following it very thightly , eventually it will , but that's just matter of time now , there is good news this year and I am afraid , take2 got the balls, there are indications it may not be a publisher anymore but that's really fifty-fifty speculation.

    there is simply an infinite amount of possibilities with modern graphics engines that people should think and develop it goes TILT !!.


    A lot of ideas but no one can take the responsibility to create the modern Duke Nukem, the expectations of fans and all of us are so high that people who must finish it's afraid to disappoint.

    I actually think the Vikings will win the Super Bowl before Duke Nukem Forever comes out. And even though I'm from Minnesota, that's saying something.

    Yeah , that's why they even can't imagine to think releasing it now , since now , they have to do it because people expect to see it in 2010 standards , anyhow , this delay probably got handy for DX11 , but again , nobody knows.

    On the other hand , i don't expect super duper crysis graphics , jace hall who is friend of 3DR , said that they are doing more creative work than technological display, but yet again , we know that they update graphics, effects, decals all the time.


    One thing 3DR wasted is simple fact , never do a full game with undeveloped concept , they were actually developing concept for like 5 years , but because they did a mistake , they modelled , skinned and did all the levels , and wasted like another 5 years on that because the concept and engine was not great , they scrapped work , if they didn't modeled, scripted ..etx anything , they would just scrap concept , ideas from the midn and some papers , and that IS the proper development procedure or experience , you see what does and what doesn't work , much like ID software Carmack explained, how he teaches new devs not to skin those ideas because they would scrap them later anyway, that would cause devs to be sad , and obviously with concept change you don't throw practically any work away.

    For example , all the seniors of ID were assigned for developing IDTech5 engine and Doom4 , so RAGE was meant to be a "little addon" while waiting for Doom4 , because the new team was doing that they modelled and skinned the first concepts , when carmack saw that he got a great new IP , later realized it can be a full blown game , so RAGE was scrapped, half of it was lost work.


    Because of this mistake , and scrapping , that's why a lot of developers left 3DR.

    Who really cares. I liked the way it looked back in 2001 using Unreal Engine 1.5 and gameplay looked interesting as well. Back then i was waiting it with anticipation but now, i don't even care anymore. 10 years. C'mon...

    Not a surprise , when it really gets out , it's going to be big , but im afraid that those guys that are now like 30 years old .... long forgot about it , some might , but they will probably not just buy a new PC and get to gaming , no time , family. ...

    Im just feeling stupid explaing something that's so maturely logical and obvious , I don't have naything agant those who still wait for DNF , yeah, let the legacy live , but people still in those 3DR forums are such retards , all they do is living in forum all day talking nonsense bs.

    I payed a visit there when the lawsuit was settled , and like in 2 days got the ol' virus of "offtopic nonsense bs with dnf development conspiracies and theories that i can't get out of my mind".

    If I told u.. I'd have to kill u
    Its all Blah blah blah. Who will care about a game that had taken sooooooo long to even consider hitting the market? Most of the future kids will say "Duke Nukem"? Who the fak is that? And all us old farts who played the original Duke back in the early days before the great war of 2012 will all chuckle and laugh at the stupid little wee ones.
    Die already! :toast:
