Duke Nukem Whenever

A post on Shacknews titled "Duke4 Not A 2003 Game" quotes a Take 2 Interactive conference call where the publisher basically asserts that there's no "possibility under the sun" that Duke Nukem Forever will be released by this year's holiday season, and that since they have already accounted for the fee paid to Infogrames for the project, "right now we're just hopeful that the team in Dallas will finish it." The story also mentions their hopes of releasing Max Payne 2 in January of next year.

I agree. I tried to play DN3D and came to the same conclusion you did. If DNF ever came out I might play it to see what all the fuss was about, but I won't be paying for it that's for sure.

245. DN3D sucked Jun 5, 2003, 20:59 human
 
Am I the only one who was totally unimpressed by that game? It looks and sounds like a badly patched together amalgam of better games and movies. All the 'memorable lines' from it are just from other movies. The semi-nudity, etc, were mere shock value. After that I've never understood the interest in DNF.

its sad the anti-semetism that you all so obviously have for the game developers. its sad that in this day and age racism is so prevalent among teen boys

fredrickson, as the resident troll, you're supposed to 1) at least be funny and 2) failing that, at least make sense. This is niether. Damn, you suck.

On another note, I'm kinda of half convinced that Blue is fredrickson. Piece it together, people...he's never been banned, Blue is always so unfailingly nice and has no release for the frustrations of dealing pubescent fanboys who take everything too seriously, and most importantly, you've never seen the two of them together in the same place at the same time...it's like a whole Jekyl/Hyde thing, Bruce/Hulk thing, well you get the idea.

Man by the time this crap is even out my excitement level will probably be at an all time low, These graffixs are starting to look parallel to a half life mod at best. Heck you might as well make this game a Half life mod since it wont compare to halflife and doom 3

"If DNF is not out in 2001, something's very
wrong." - George Broussard, 2001

This quote is hilarious. Something is very wrong. I'm not going to hold a grudge against this guy or his company though.

At least we won't have any complaints about this one being rushed out the door.

I think they should simply say:

"It will be out before the end of time."

But maybe even thats streching it.

Here ya go Bronco. One thing, all of the posts that
I couldn't find a quote (see URL) for where from the
3DR UBB & have been either removed or edited at the
3DR site, which, I'm sure GB and Joe did so they didn't
have to continuiously have to eat their words, I'm sure
we'd all do the same if we were in the same position.
Better read these url's and save them to file, as I
wouldn't be suprised if "someone" pressure's the sites
to remove them, I'm surprised that the Christmas
card is still up.

Thank you. Now I gotta go over 'there' and see if the original has any bylines.

Duke Nukem Forever is never coming out.

You will never be able to buy it.

You will never be able to download it.

I repeat, never.

George is to DNF as Sisyphus is to his boulder.

The fact that all you folks are still talking Duke, good or bad, should reveal the real message.

Exactly. Some of these posts remind of a guy who's been dumped by a girl. Afterwards they say every hurtful thing they can think of while hoping against all hope that she'll one day return.

Hell, I'm exasperated too over the delays in this game, but that's only because I want it so bad. So, the bottom line is I'm still going to buy the f*cker the minute it hits the shelves.

And it better be good by George!


-----------------------------------------
Of course I could be wrong... but really, what are the chances of that happening twice?

While this is funny to read I wonder if you could edit your post and provide the magazine/web page/whatever that each of these come from. I'd be interested in seeing that.

Besides worrying about DNF I got a job and a life to worry about, so I'm not going to take part in this discussion.

~Halo

Cheers for taking time out of your busy life and job to take part in this discussion to inform us that you wouldn't be taking part.

Fool.
