"Only in the computer gaming world do people hear about a game in development and then start crying like babies when it doesn't land in their laps immediately"
If you think Immediately = 4+ years.. I hate to think
what you would consider a 'long' wait. 100? 150 maybe?
Anyway.. I just think they are giving a bad name to themselves by doing junk like not releasing a game that people actually want to buy in any reasonable amount of time. I bet games like FF X and FF XI took 3 years less to make and are 10x larger!
What are the odds that next year they look at DNF and go 'wow this sucks azz compared to doom, maybe we should be morons and change engines again'. I bet probably pretty good odds.
Still a disapointed fan.. err ex-fan.
As for the comment to my post about reading what they have done with the franchise.. your right.. they did sell alot of 'map packs' back in the day. As for new stuff? uhm anyone else here want a FPS on a PSX? nope.. me either. home console stuff dosn't count for them. They should of sold the 3d FPS liscense to a real PC company. Hey.. the 2d side scroller is a good start.. atleast they let someone else use duke.. maybe soon someone who knows how to ship a game will get it.
