It's been over 3 years since I last used this; now seems like as good a time as any for a repost, updated to include what's happened since then.



Some highlights of what has been accomplished in less time than DNF has taken, courtesy of http://duke.a-13.net/

  • The Beatles formed, released every single one of their albums and broke up. During this time they also toured the world several times.


  • The Wright brothers designed and flew the first airplane.


  • The United States' entire program to put a man on the moon, from Kennedy's challenge to the landing.


  • Events occurring during the development of DNF:

  • All 3 Star Wars prequels, all 3 Lord of the Rings movies ( including extended editions), and all 3 Matrix movies were filmed, released to theaters, and are now on DVD.


  • Google was incorporated, growing from a two-person company with a net worth of next to nothing to employing 16,000 people and being worth billions.


  • The Xbox, Xbox 360, Gamecube, Gameboy Color, Gameboy Advance, Nintendo DS, Dreamcast, Wii, PS2, PS3, PSP, and Nintendo 3DS were all released.


  • Blizzard released Starcraft, Diablo 2, Warcraft III, World of Warcraft, and Starcraft II, including expansions for all except SC II.


  • Half-Life, Half-Life 2, plus all their expansions and mods


  • Black Isle was formed, released seven titles and was shut down


  • Final Fantasy VII, VIII, IX, X, X-2, XI, XII, XIII, and XIV have all been released

  • Priceless!

    Everything that has happened since Gearbox took over DNF has already been done by 3DRealms...everything...not a single thing has changed:

    Confirmed Release Date? Check.
    Playable demo shown at game shows? Check.
    Pre-Release purchase available? Check.
    Box art revealed? Check.
    Release Date delayed? Check.

    If you set your watch by DNF time then time travel to the past is possible.
