I just had a brilliant idea!

    Everyone wants Duke Nuken Forever right? And it will never get released because it doesnt exist, right? Well. Why doesnt someone just take the current build of the Unreal Engine and make a UT2k3 mod or something called like "Spluke Glukem Foeva" and we'll make our own DNF?

    Seriously, I wonder if 3DRealms realizes how much they get made fun of. If I was getting made fun of THAT much, I think I would put my dev team into high gear, dont you?

    Serious Sam fulfilled all our action hero one-liner needs. Why do we need Duke Nukem, again?

    This is off topic usage of the spoiler tag

    Great idea. The sitting around position on the team has already been taken though :(

    yeah, it's been taken....by me! :p

    Actually if we did ever plan to do anything like this, I could probably do some models as well as a few maps.

    Actually, an even better lampoon would be to make a faux DNF demo... imagine this...

    FADE IN - the city. Dark. The city's lights twinkle in the purple mist of dusk. Pan down to street level.

    Duke puts on a pair of shades, cocks his shotgun and utters some guttural badass one-liner like "let's kick some ass" or "make my forever" or whatever.

    Level begins - you're in an alleyway. You run up to a door, open it and walk through...

    YOU AIN'T SEEN NOTHING YET!!! BE SURE AND PURCHASE THE FULL RELEASE OF DUKE NUKEM FOREVER IF (er, we mean, when) IT COMES OUT!!!

    Doesn't Duke Nukem Forever run on the UT engine?

    I mean look at the screenshots. The engine has become outdated and the graphics look like crap by todays standards.

    What about a series of demos ?

    - first one just opens a standard dialog box saying "You ain't seen nothing YET!"
    - second loads a GUI but won't launch anything
    - third slideshows photoshopped screenshots
    - etc...

    that's why it's being delayed for so long. the dev team switched engines 3 times. remember how long half life1 was delayed due to only 1 engine switch!

    That's because the retards can't manage to finish a game before the engine they're currently using becomes obsolete.

    so you'd expect them to release an unfinished game rather than a perfect one which takes a bit longer?
    I'd rather weit longer for games if this would mean not having to patch 'em afterwards.

    Wasn't that what happened with Daikatana, only even more so?

    IMO DNF was cancelled years ago, and they're just waiting for the right time to break the news that there will be no DNF to their shareholders.

    3D Realms would be all over a Duke mod before you could make the first model. I used to review for Deja-Review and they told us to remove all the duke maps from the database. Even though it's a terrific license and 3D Realms is butchering it so much it makes baby jesus cry theres nothing you can do about it because they still hold the copyright.
