Well done, Gearbox (4, Interesting)

RogueyWon (735973) | more than 3 years ago | (#34952328)

Well done to Gearbox for finishing this off - it would have been a sin if it didn't see the light of day in the end. The previews look good and I'm looking forward to picking it up when it reaches Europe on 6 May (PC version, of course, the Duke doesn't need some stinking console). I'm hoping for a shooter which emphasises funky weapons, crazy situations and bad jokes over "balance" and other hardcore trappings. Back when I was a student, DN3D was always the game for a fun blast while Quakeworld was for whose who took things a bit more seriously.

Anyway, Gearbox, how about you get cracking on Aliens: Colonial Marines now - or will that be done "when it's ready"?

Re:Well done, Gearbox (5, Funny)

TrisexualPuppy (976893) | more than 3 years ago | (#34952544)

Finishing this off? Please. We have only just seen the beginning.

I predict that the moment before the game is to be "released," a wormhole will open, occupying half the sky over Los Angeles. From it, millions of Octabrains will come forth, wreaking havoc and destruction while Battlelords appear and L.A.P.D. pigs are turned into L.A.R.D. cops. No, we have only just seen the early prophecy. In this Hollywood Holocaust, only those yielding laser tripmines, pipebombs, and microwave guns will survive.

I, for one, welcome our new DN3D Overlords. (Someone desperately needed to upgrade the sprites to DNF models!)

The Duke was King back in 1995/1996. Back then I didn't have any form of income being a 12 year old and my folks didn't believe in allowance. I had to rely on some older kids in the neighborhood that would allow me to borrow the install CD's for Duke Nukem, Doom 2, and Quake.

Starting with Doom back in late 94 early 95, I must have spent hours playing it and going over every square inch of the maps. By the time Duke and Quake arrived there was always those discussion among the older kids of which was better. I never understood why Quake was better, no one in the neighborhood was online back then nor could do multiplayer of any form. Between Quake and Duke, the Duke had attitude, character, some depth you felt like you were playing as someone awesome. Quake though was just a man who would grunt every so often, not much different from Doom 2. As for the graphics, sure Quake was 3D in both objects and map but this was early primitive 3D. A decent art team making sprites could outshine 3D graphics back then.

The Duke will always be King.

Re:Well done, Gearbox (5, Interesting)

pak9rabid (1011935) | more than 3 years ago | (#34953508)

Agreed. Not to mention the other niceties of Duke3D, such as blood dripping off the walls, the mirrors where you could actually see your own reflection, and being able to leave footprints when stepping over a blood puddle or out of water. I thought the graphics in Quake were awful compared to Duke3D back in that day, even though it was true 3D (granted, this was before glQuake made it's debut).

Yeah, but now we'll have to look for a new nerdy injoke that is the equivalent of "When hell freezes over". I'm personally hoping the release date is pushed back at least once, just for the heck of it.

Back when I was a student, DN3D was always the game for a fun blast while Quakeworld was for whose who took things a bit more seriously.

Tripmines used to cause quite the bit of nerdrage. I personally am hoping those things find their way back into the game.

NevarMore (248971) | more than 3 years ago | (#34953734)

Hah, no offense taken. Better to be pissed off than pissed on.

Apple was the example because they're the most visible. Google sometimes does unannounced releases, but they tend to be quiet about it. Is there a generic term for that tactic? "Surprise release"? "Controlled leak"?

DNF has had so many failed and delayed releases that every announcement about it is justifiably treated like a joke. If some company is actually working on it and plans on releasing it, they should keep quiet about it.

When they come out and say "You can buy this game on Steam NOW" the internet will shit its pants and drop its Cheetos and rush to buy it. An announcement about a release data is greeted with a yawn and a snarky joke if its acknowledged at all.

Re:While I applaud their efforts... (0)

Max Romantschuk (132276) | more than 3 years ago | (#34952494)

Actually there is a very large likelihood that a lot of the buzz around Apple products is from deliberately leaked information. That way Apple gets a ton of free press, and can keep their image squeaky clean.

Gentoo, Gentoo, Gentoo, Gentoo, Gentoo, OpenWrt, and Android respectively.

I stopped using Wine too... don't think there will be a Linux port.
At most I could hope for a PS3 version (maybe there is.... I didn't RTFA).

Sure we can. Why not? It happened, and it can't be undone.

Heck, I still use Cheops Law when talking about project timelines and expense, and that one is > 3000 years old. :) So why not DNF?

Lessons learned: None (4, Insightful)

"US release date: May 3rd. It will release worldwide three days later"

Games companies are forever bleeting on about piracy, so why the hell do they release a game in one country and tell everyone else in the world that they have to wait THREE days? As if loads of those people aren't going to pirate the game, when they may well have gone and bought it if they'd had the chance.

The only question worth asking: Will it be Duke? (3, Interesting)

DN3D wasn't just a shooter. It was a shooter with a certain "attitude". It certainly set no hallmark for graphics or physics, but it sure was one for political incorrectness in games. Duke was a sexist, macho, bubblegum chewing (ok, ok, he was constantly out of gum, but he tried) pig. Not really the usual shining hero of shooters at this time.

What defined Duke was the wisecracking and the comments, the quite nonlinear levels and the blatant sexism. Let's be honest here, guys, that was part of the appeal. It was not the usual squeaky-clean world we usually got from shooters.

I hope that in our PC world there's still place for a sexist dinosaur like the Duke. It just wouldn't be Duke without tipping the strippers.

Shouldn't be released (1)

I would personally pay full price if they never released this game, but kept putting out trailers every few years, and saying it was almost done, just switching to the latest engine, etc...

The timeline according to GU. (1)
