Well it looks like it's finally here. And just as hilarious as ever.

What?


There's a PS3 with modern graphics ALREADY?

edit: I love me some Duke but I really don't know why it took so long to develop this. It looks terrible.

Who cares if it doesn't look as polished as most games? Considering the engine it's running on is probably ~ 6 years old now (if not more, since I think it's just an improved Half-Life 2 engine), we should just be happy it's actually coming out.

Whats the word on multiplayer? If it's straight run-n-gun, Quake/Doom/UT style fragfest then I may have a reason to put Black Ops away for awhile.

*EDIT* And good to see they didn't ***** the game up by taking out nudity or any of the other mature humor that made the others so good.

My point was that it should have come out ~ 6 years ago.

(i have no idea what delayed it though and have done no research whatsoever, just making an observation)

I think you make a good point. This game will probably suck by most peoples definition. People will only like it because they've been "waiting" so long and there's so much hype around it.

Nothing about it looks particularly good except for the humor.

90% of the people buying this aren't expecting a monumental achievement in video games. They're expecting a ballsy, humorous, fun and action packed run-n-gun. Nothing more, because we honestly shouldn't expect anything more.

And the main reason why it was delayed was because it wasn't a majorly funded game. It was all private investment. And when you have no deadlines or milestones from your funding urging you to get **** done or else they cut the money, things drag on. The majority of this game was paid for out of pocket by a dedicated staff who really believed in the game and expended too much time and effort into it.

That's only partially true. The reason it never came out was solely the head of 3D REALMS. There's a GREAT article out there about the rise and fall of 3D Realms and Duke Nukem Forever.

Basically it came down to the man was obsessed w/ the latest and greatest. So they've had NUMEROUS working versions of the game but something new would come out, and he HAD to have it and they'd end up back to the drawing board. Eventually it destroyed the company, and game.

Thankfully Gearbox came in and they're finishing it and releasing it, and hopefully they'll do a full on internally designed followup, but don't expect too much on this one. It'll be nice to use it as a starting point for the series' return. Where Gearbox takes it will be the true test.

Yep. They wanted it to be like the best game ever created, lol.

Yeah when I read that article about the rise/fall it was really enlightening. The dude was obsessed w/ being the best, and having everything be as top of the line as they could make it.

Unfortunately DNF came into play at the height of the PC Revolution. I mean for years it was just minor new graphics cards, minor CPU tweaks, more space, more RAM, etc... but it was a very slow moving process.

Then comes the late 90's and hardware entered a new state, and it exploded and unfortunately for 3DR so did the software techs so it's near impossible to have the latest/greatest. Someone always is working on the next thing.

Gearbox did a great job w/ Borderlands and as long as they did a solid, within reason, to DNF then I'm good. I would love to see the series enter a new age, and keep them coming.

Personally I'm just expecting a game with average graphics, fun run&gun gameplay, and some hilarious dark humor. Looks like it will more than deliver in that regard.

I'll try to find it, but I believe it was done in WIRED so that may help searching. It covers the history of 3D Realms and the CEO.

The delay itself was partially that, and partially the fact 3D Realms shut down. They don't exist. Just recently (last summer) Gearbox announced it bought the IP from them, and they took over the project. So there's that, too.
