Re: Duke Nukem Forever in-game footage released
The problem with a massive development time like this is that what was absolute 'top of the line' technology when the game was started will be commonplace by the time it is released. So, people will be left wondering why the game took so long.

A few years ago those videos would have had people drooling over their keyboards, nowadays it looks about at a level with other games that spent far less time in development.

It might be a great game, but they will never live down the amount of years it took to make it, it will always carry that stigma with it.



Look how long Team Fortress 2 took to be released. TF2's development took 10 years, and look how popular it is now. DNF may do alot better than everyone thinks it will.

Prey took a helluva long time to release too, got scrapped quite a few times, totally revamped a few more times .... basically it languished in development hell for a very very long time... Yea, 11 years.

I've been reading about Duke Nukem Forever's development since I started playing Duke Nukem 3D when I was 12, and I agree with that. Something tells me that the boffins at 3D Realms want to make a game that will please every Duke Nukem fan, as they claim it will. They did switch between two to three game engines, and goodness knows how long it takes to craft a game on ONE engine. Given that, it's easy to see why they took so long.

...they spent 13 years, I think...

Re: Duke Nukem Forever in-game footage released
   Where's teh damn ingame footage? I couldn't find it when I went to the link.

EDIT - wait I need an xbox? Wtf. Is this going to be Xbox only game or what? God damn consoles.


EDIT2 - did anyone noticed that Duke Nukem Forever has the same initials as Did Not Finish. That's kinda funny. Though I'm sure it was noticed about 10 years ago.

I saw that the first time I read the Wikipedia article. They probably removed it for violating WP:NOR.

I remember when Halo was announced, everyone wanted that game and then they switched to console.
Was a bad idea, and led to some ( sometimes heated ) discussions.. One year after they released it for x-box ( or was it 2 ? ), they released it for PC. It was totally disappointing.  :no:

Duke Nukem forever has also the same initials as Development need forever  :p

IIRC it was more like 2, maybe 3 years when Halo was ported to PC.

the answer is they decided to change game engine to UT3 from the previous engine and start from scratch.

to the point, i am looking forward to this game, i have played all 6 duke games, even to the point that other games such as jason storm and delta force couldn't cure :P.
