The Duke Is Finally Back, For Real

kdawson posted more than 6 years ago | from the better-be-good dept.

First Person Shooters (Games) 309

After the first announcement on 1997-04-27 and over eleven years of fresh start after fresh start, Duke Nukem Forever finally comes to your system. At least if your system is an Xbox 360. Jon Siegler, the webmaster of 3D Realms, confirms this on their site: "As has been reported around the net today, we can confirm that the game has indeed passed final certification with Microsoft on Friday the 15th of August (on our first try, no less). That means the game is done — it is now in the hands of Microsoft." Update: 08/19 10:47 GMT by T : Several readers have written with a correction: this announcement is actually about Duke Nukem 3D, rather than Duke Nukem Forever.

Um,I hate to break this to you,but it is actually a story about Duke3D which plays just fine in XP. I know because I have a little 733MHz with dual boot Win98SE and XP and it ran just fine in WinXP. Oh,and since we know now that editors don't bother to check the links I would be surprised if story submitters didn't try for a massive rickroll. Having the front page with every single link a rickroll? Now THAT would be funny! But as always this is my 02c,YMMV

Re:Wrong... (1)

Professor_UNIX (867045) | more than 6 years ago | (#24656399)

It's probably easy for them to mistake this for a Duke Nukem Forever announcement since it is so very rare that game developers announce a new port of a 12 and a half year old computer game to yet another new platform.

In case some people haven't realized it yet, Duke Nukem Forever is a JOKE guys. The whole point of the joke is that Duke Nukem will continue to be ported to new platforms "forever" as they become available. There isn't going to be an actual game with killer graphics called "Duke Nukem Forever", it's just the same rehashed pseudo-3D game from 1996 on newer platforms, or occasionally a rehashing of the 2D side-scrolling platform versions.

It's silly to think that any company would be so completely inept at game development that they couldn't produce a simple FPS for a computer after more than 12 years when much cooler games have been developed and released in less than 2 years! That's the joke!

Re:Wrong... (3, Informative)

Sycraft-fu (314770) | more than 6 years ago | (#24656505)

Actually re-releases of older games on newer platforms are becoming more common. Game devs have started to note the flourishing emulation community and realized that people still like to play the old classics. Sometimes, they go out and use the emulators to do it. Sierra uses DOSBox to run their compilations on Windows. Also Nintendo has a SNES emulator (developed in house I think) on the Wii so you can buy favored SNES games and play them. So that isn't surprising.

Also DNF is no joke, or at least if it is the joke's on 3Drealms. They have currently licensed not one, not two but three high end (at the time) 3D engines over the course of developing it. That is some seriously expensive shit. They've spent a lot of money working on it. Be it ineptitude or something else, they've sunk a lot of money in the project.

Yep (4, Insightful)

Sycraft-fu (314770) | more than 6 years ago | (#24656465)

As a practical matter it isn't real likely that DNF would come out now, not just because of it's vaporware status but because it is, yet again, time for another engine change. DNF was being developed on a modified Unreal Engine 2. Ok, no problem... Except that Unreal Engine 3 is out. Not only is it out, there are a bunch of first flight games using it. Bio Shock, Mass Effect, UT3, Rainbow 6 Vegas, this is what people expect new, top of the line shooters to look like. So if they release with a game based on the old engine, well it isn't likely to do so well, especially given all the buildup. Thus they'll need to license UE 3, and then they'll be conversion work for that.

However I suspect what is happening is money is starting to run out. A number of products that they were publishing/producing got transferred to other companies, which suggests they don't have the funds to keep development going. Duke 3D being one of their only properties around, they seem to be trying for another release to get some more cash.

I can't say I'm all that surprised, they have done basically nothing as a developer for over a decade, and not a whole lot as a publisher (most of their stuff published this decade are Duke rehashes for various platforms). It can't be cheap to continue working on this game that's never getting released. Compounding that is licensing cost for buying new game engines all the time. 3D engines from companies like Epic and iD are not cheap, and even less so when it is the top of the line engine. They've thus far bought 3 of them (Quake 2, UE 1 and UE 2) and that is going to hit the bottom line.

Personally, I think they'll go bankrupt before they ever actually get DNF out. Most likely the property will be sold to another studio. Who knows what will come of it? At this point, I just don't see them as being able to get together the money to finish it, even if they did actually stop screwing around and work on getting it out.

Ailure (853833) | more than 6 years ago | (#24656381)

Well.... yesterday I tried out M.U.L.E. for the first time. Despite it's aged apparent, and it being one of the earliest simulators I still had a blast.

My point is... Because a certain genre have more advanced games doesn't necessarily mean the old classics in the same genre suddenly isn't as good anymore. :) I play Team Fortress 2 a lot for example, one of the latest and biggest FPS games... yet I still enjoy playing Doom from time to time.

Of course, I admit some old games that was apparently huge classic bored me... that was the case for Pitfall. I guess Super Mario Bros spoiled me too much. On the other hand, I enjoyed Adventure on the same console... even if somewhat simplistic.

Re:Cmon, atleast get it right! (1)

aliquis (678370) | more than 6 years ago | (#24656555)

I've played some Quake last years, but I never got the deal with duke nuke'm. Probably because I didn't had a PC and we played Quake in school and multiplayer and the 3D of Quake was just better anyway.

So I may give it to little credits for what it was, but personally I have no need whatsoever to play it. In a day where ID1 let everyone play their "new Quake 3" I'd much rather spend my time with that.

And I guess most people would prefer to play Halo 2 or 3 or whatever is the latest compared to DN3D.

Re:Cmon, atleast get it right! (2, Interesting)

Awptimus Prime (695459) | more than 6 years ago | (#24656405)

Some things was best in their time.

I still play Doom2 and SF2 on XBLA. The latest 3D engine and multi-million dollar game isn't always as good as a re-vamped or rebalanced classic.

Plus, take into consideration several million XB360 owners who weren't old enough to get into these games when they were new and cutting edge.

Finally, I used to dream of having a gigantic display to play Duke on a comfy couch when I was sitting there with my 14" CRT in a $20 used office chair. Freshened graphics on a 50" HD panel in the den, online multiplayer, and better audio will be _that_ dream come true.

eclectro (227083) | more than 6 years ago | (#24656063)

That means the game is done -- it is now in the hands of Microsoft.

as they hold it there is this barely perceptible crackling sound as a thousand fissures in the disk appear and as they grow more and more numerous the disk turns to sand and filters through thier fingers and as the sand hits the floor it turns back to the vapor from whence it came.

Either that countless Xbos systems melt down as people try to play it. It'll be one of those two.

Freedom from arbitrary completion date pressures, which allows the game to be made on its schedule, and not some suit's schedule.

That is pure win!

Not yet... (1, Funny)

Everybody knows that Duke will be released on December 21, 2012, to coinside with the end of the world [religioustolerance.org] ! :)

Since Sister Tereasa swore I was going to Hell when I was growing up I figured I better learn how to ice skate.

Can suck my dick.

Is it too much to ask for people to read the fucking article before they submit it?

Ah-ah! Even if it was 'Forever' and not '3D'... (1, Troll)

That means the game is done -- it is now in the hands of Microsoft.

Therein lies the rub.

Before I RTFA, I already had a comment in mind "I'll believe it when I see it". But alas, no.... Am I the only one who got slightly excited about this being Duke Nukem Forever and then feeling absolutely gutted upon realizing it was 3D? Again? Surely anyone who has wanted to play Duke 3D has, at some point, played it already. I really don't see how "newer" gamers (i.e. those who started gaming after the original playstation) would be interested especially after all the controversy surrounding the vaporware aspect of Forever. Though that being said, I suppose squeezing the last few pennies out of their retired, senile old cash cow might throw some cash towards the development of Forever.. but jesus tap dancing christ, somehow I doubt the final game will even be worth playing in the end!

Apocalyps Now! (2, Funny)

w00sh, w00sh, w00sh, w00sh, w00sh...

Xbox 360... shit; I'm still only coding for Xbox 360... Every time I think I'm gonna wake up back behind my pc coding Duke Nukem Forever forever. When I was home after my first checkin it was worse. I'd wake up and there'd be nothing. I hardly said a word to my wife, until I said "yes" to a divorce. When I was here, I wanted to be there; when I was there, all I could think of was getting back into the source code. I'm here a week now... waiting for a lock... getting softer; every minute I stay in this room, I get weaker, and every minute Microsoft squats in the log files, he gets stronger. Each time I looked around, the walls moved in a little tighter.

Duke Nukem Never

It better be good when/if it ever shows up. (1)

How much you want to bet it will suck anyway. Duke Nukem "FOREVER" What if it never existed the whole time?

Hey guys, this is about Duke Nukem 3D for the Xbox 360, not about DNF. Just in case nobody has mentioned it yet.
