Duke Nukem Forever 'Confirmed' For Late 2008

Zonk posted more than 6 years ago | from the funny-weird-not-funny-ha-ha dept.

344

An anonymous reader writes "A Dallas newspaper is claiming that the long-in-development title Duke Nukem Forever is headed for retail release in late 2008. Unfortunately, game creator 3D Realms says that's not exactly what they meant. 'What the modest Texas newspaper actually seems to suggest is that 3D Realms is "on target" to release the mythical sequel sometime this year, though company president Scott Miller adds, "we may miss the mark by a month or two" (wink, wink). Miller also hinted that "hitting the big three" (in this case, PC, Xbox 360 and PS3) is the obvious development strategy, but he continued to stress that 3D Realms has not "formally announced any platforms for DNF."'"

Are the people who played this game 12 years ago still playing video games now?

Re:12 Years (-1, Troll)

Anonymous Coward | more than 6 years ago | (#22323792)

Good question. I doubt it, other than the misanthropes on Slashdot who will certainly reply that they still play video games and leave out minor facts like the reason they still play video games is that they've never been laid in the past twelve years.

Assuming that the original players were all about 18 for the original, that'd make them 30 now. Most 30 year olds have moved on and are starting families. (Or at least should have.) If they do still play video games, it certainly isn't violent "rated M" video games - it's with the kids.

Even going with 24 as the high range of the current video game generation, they'd have been twelve when Duke Nukem 3D was out.

Somehow I doubt any of the original Duke Nukem fans are still playing video games.

I'm 25 now, I still play video games, and I played the original Duke Nukem 3D, along with other classics such as Doom I & II, zork, and all those old Sierra adventure games. I'm also engaged right now with a wedding date set for November, and I have a rather nice full time job that pays the bills. Saying or implying anyone over the age of 24 that plays video games has something wrong with them is rather narrow minded. Admittedly I don't play as much as I once did, but I do get a few hours a week in on average.

I'm 29 and still game. I have the whole family, house, and job thing going on, but still find some time to game (not as much as 20 years ago, obviously.) My better half has actually started gaming again, too, which she hasn't done since she was a little girl (she still had her original NES, which works amazing.) We tend to mostly play Wii games together, but she has a DS and I have a ton of other systems (360, PS2, DC, whatever else is in the cellar I haven't dug out since our move.) All the gamers I grew up with still game, and my mother is even still a gamer (and obviously much older than either of us.) I don't think age has a thing to do with it.

You know, it's funny - for a while, I played Duke 3d heavily. Before that, of course, I'd played Doom, and Doom 2, and Wolf 3d... Then Quake came out, and QuakeWorld, and all that good stuff, and I played them obsessively. Then I figured, "Hey, why not give Shadow Warrior a try?" (For those who don't remember, Shadow Warrior was a sprite-based 3d shooter - like Duke Nukem with throwing stars. It was also quite bad.)

I discovered that playing SW for longer than a few minutes gave me a horrible sense of motion sickness. And then a couple weeks ago, "Marathon: Durandal" was released on XBox Live. Downloaded it, started it, and felt like hurling in 5 minutes. It's ridiculous - I can't play any of those sprite-based FPS games anymore.

Thanks a ton, id Software. You quite literally ruined me for sprite based games. Assholes. ;)

(post script: I'm 34, and have been married now for ten years. Last night I played a little Call of Duty 4, and a little Burnout Paradise.)

nickj6282 (896871) | more than 6 years ago | (#22324182)

I'm 25, married, have a son, and a baby on the way. When my son and I are not playing Lego Star Wars together, I play plenty of M-rated games. I also regularly bring my DS to work with me for something to do on my downtime. Right now my gamerscore is at a modest 5970 but I'm hoping to surpass 10,000 by the end of the winter. Got any other short-sighted blanket-statements to make?

I regularly go to LAN parties with other grown adults who also have jobs/families/spouses and we have a great time playing Halo 3, COD4, and Guitar Hero. I know that I'm not alone, even among the non-slashdot crowd.

I hate to quote statistics when I can't find the link, but perhaps someone else can point me in the right direction. Anyways, the average gamer is over 18. 24 is far from the "high" age range. Anyone who is 30 today was about 5 years old when the NES came out and revolutionized home gaming. Most of the people who grew up gaming still find it to be a perfectly acceptable thing to do as an adult. When games are sixty bucks a pop you practically need the patience and the bank account of an adult to properly research and purchase them.

Wow, you're kind of a jerk, aren't you? How's that working out for you?

Truthfully, though, I've grown accustom to the ignorant, contemptuous perspectives of the nongaming community towards my preferential hobby. For some reason, it's impossible for most non-gamers to accept the possibility that a mature, responsible individual could get as much enjoyment out of a well-made videogame as others do from books, movies or television.

I don't really understand where this stereotype comes from, since most of the gamers I know are neither children nor immature twenty-somethings smoking pot in their parent's basements at 2 in the afternoon. I, myself, am 26, have a B.S. in computer science and make a pretty good living as a web programmer for a reputable engineering company. As for your remarks about a gamer's probable love-life... GOD you're ignorant. I don't know what else to say about that. I'm sure an AC forum troll like you gets all kinds of pussy. Chicks dig flamebait, so how could anyone else compete? I'm routinely satisfied, though, if you know what I mean.

I guess what it comes down to is your preference. Some people prefer an interactive form of entertainment. Other people prefer to post retarded comments as anonymous cowards for the sad little thrill of drawing attention to themselves. Everyone has their hobbies. If you're lucky, you'll enjoy yours half as much as I enjoy mine.

12 years ago I was 15.

As far as gaming goes, I'm just hitting my prime.

Re:12 Years (1)

hedwards (940851) | more than 6 years ago | (#22324222)

Same here, for whatever reason my reflexes are so much better now than 12 years ago when I was 15.

I'll admit it, I installed dosbox recently just to play the demo for keen4 which I played when it was still more or less new. When I get around to it I'll look into playing the original Dukenukem sidescrollers and possibly the FPS.

If people older than 25 play games less than those under, it probably has more to do with remembering what good games are and actually having played them. That's not to say that there are none now, but we are in the middle of a period of over saturation.

You can't really make games like a lot of the ones from when I was really playing any longer. And it isn't the quality or the actual gameplay aspects, it's the fact that you can't sell a game with cartoonish characters in the cut scenes and have lines like: "Well that ain't my belly button" "'Tain't my finger neither."

As for DNF I won't believe that they have anything at all until I can play the demo, at which point I will accept that they have a demo and refuse to believe in the game until it's in my hands on my computer and I've beaten the entire game.

I kind of hate to say it but yutzes like the Focus on the Family and Jack Thompson have done a really good job at destroying the game playing experience.

I'm still playing. (1)

I played games on a computer 30 years ago.. And still play now..
Interestingly, Nintendo noticed that there was a tendancy for companies to market to the under 25 market.. And chose to open up the Wii to the older population segment.. And it seems to be doing rather well for that..

Re:12 Years (1)

ucblockhead (63650) | more than 6 years ago | (#22324284)

Yes. I spent many, many hours playing Duke single player, then playing online over the now long dead TEN network. I played it pretty constantly for around a year. Hell, when I played it, I'd already been playing video games for ten years. I have been playing since the days of Castle Wolfenstein [wikipedia.org] . (And no, I do not mean the game from id that was the first fps.) The first console I ever had was a pong set my parents bought new when I was twelve. That was thirty years ago.

Last night, I spent an hour playing Pixel Junk Monsters, than a couple running through Half-life 2. (I played the original on the PC, but figured I'd make another run to get used to console controls.)

Not that I am at all holding my breath for this. In 1998 I might have been interested. Now there's too many other games that are actually sitting on my desk to worry about vaporware. (The nice thing about being a 40+ year old gamer is that I have the disposable income to get pretty much whatever I want.)

akirapill (1137883) | more than 6 years ago | (#22324388)

It doesn't matter. With the dubious honor of being the undisputed king of vaporware, DNF has achieved such a legendary cult status in its own right that today's gamers will snap it up just to see what all the hype is about. Will they sell enough units to cover 10+ years of development costs? Not likely. But for video games, the old axiom rings true: all publicity is good publicity.

Re:12 Years (3, Interesting)

_Pablo (126574) | more than 6 years ago | (#22324522)

I (36, Married, 2 kids) play in a clan where the minimum age is 25 and the oldest players are in their sixties. We have around a hundred members signed up (even a few of the fairer sex) with a good portion of them playing regularly (few nights a week).

The clan plays just about anything with COD4 being the current favorite (30 people in the COD4 channel last night) - so if DNF actually turns out to be even remotely worth the wait with a good multiplayer element then I am pretty sure it'll get played.

I'll wager there will be quite a few 30+ gamers slapping down their cash (or firing up their torrent for evaluation purposes) to see what 12 years of development has done (and what pixel shader lap dancers look like :P).

How can people honestly believe they're "on target" for a release this year when they haven't even nailed down which platforms they're going to be targeting? Now, with cross-platform libraries you can hit a couple of them at a time of course, but even then a certain degree of work needs to be done on the ports, plus all kinds of licensing and such. Sorry, this is the worlds longest running practical joke, and every gamer that believes anything about DNF without actually holding the finished product in their hands is just being suckered in by the joke.

My assumption was that they were targeting all three platforms but that, if they weren't going to get one of them done "in time" they might drop it and release for that platform later.

The trailer shows no real game play and had they ANY game with which to demo, they surely would have shown some of that NOW when the game itself has become a joke. This isn't massive anticipation for the game, it's gone way past that to sheer apathy for anything related to it. The bone they threw us was no bone at all.

syrinx (106469) | more than 6 years ago | (#22323860)

I like the "big three" not including the Wii. Might want to check the sales figures again, Scott.

Scott Miller also predicted a couple years ago that the Wii would finish "a distant third" and that it could mean the end of Nintendo, or something along those lines.

It's kinda sad to see the guy who wrote the Kroz series become obsessed with graphics at the expense of gameplay. Though then again, most of Apogee's game weren't especially innovative gameplay-wise, a lot of their success at the time was based on marketing (the episodic shareware model and so on). Plus after the first few years Apogee mainly started publishing others' games (id being the most famous, but a lot of other smaller companies as well), not doing much of their own stuff. So maybe it's never really been about gameplay for him, in which case it makes perfect sense for him to advocate for the PS3.

Even when/if this game is released, it won't come close to meeting gamer expectations and justification for such a long development cycle. They probably had some kind of grand plan at one point, but it got lost in delivery and lnog wait times.

Or they could be causing confusion while developing the biggest game with the longest gameplay in the history of man kind! With so much new content and various endings that this game actually revolutionizes games as we know them...

That's an option... but I agree, it will be hard to meet expecations with this wait. Every day longer makes people's expectations grow..

I hear the in-game soundtrack is going to be Guns N' Roses' Chinese Democracy.

DNF comming out in 2008, As much chance of that as Barak Obama or Hilary Clinton being elected to the presidency.

Sometimes I think they really have canned the Duke Nukem forever project. They just have one guy over there at 3Drealms whose job it is to come up with fake press releases once every six months or so, detailing the progress of Duke Nukem Forever. It might even be a rotation position, sorta've like a community service outreach for down and out liberal arts majors.

Hell, maybe they never even started DNF, and it's just an excuse for some kind of elaborate tax write-off?

What he really meant was the PSX, Saturn, and Nintendo's new "hush hush" next gen, Dolphin.
