Yes, I saw this yesterday. The game could be fun, but the graphics look pretty lousy for a game that's been in development for 10 years. :p

aye, 200*125 pixels is just about enough to judge the graphics of a yet-to-be-released game. I agree wholeheartedly.

Huh? If this is a real screenshot, then we're talking Oblivion/Crysis level polycounts. Look at the lighting, the model, the details - I would say it looks pretty damn good. Granted, it looks kind of plasticy, but that's a design choice. Technically, if the above is representative of the final game, and the final game comes out sometime in 2007, hats off the 3D Realms. I would imagine that the biggest problem with developing a game for like 9 years is keeping the grahpics fresh over multiple generations of hardware and software, and the admitedly tiny screenshot looks good to me.

I'm talking about this: http://www.shacknews.com/screens.x/duke4/Duke+Nukem+Forever/

There are more of them. Although now that I think of it, they may be ones from the previous engine. I forgot that this game has been in production so long that they changed the graphics engine twice. :p

Yes, those other screen shots are from 2001.

Thrice, at least.

Half-Life engine (which is modified Quake 2) to Unreal engine to Unreal 2 engine to, last I heard, Unreal 3 engine. I'm holding out for a Crytek-engine powered DNF sometime in 2009.

that's the only *new* screenshot, the picture is unclickable, and the last time they posted screenshots was years ago.

Of course, it's worth noting the 'screenshot' is a GIf, and hence will inevitably look pish.

not to mention that for the size it's at, you'll lose a LOT of detail, or hide the fact that there's barely no detail at all. it works both ways.
