On DNF

The Duke Nukem Forever Release Update on TotalVideoGames (thanks Mike Martinez) is another of those occasional pot-stirring stories about the long-time in-development shooter, based on a quote that was attempting to do just the opposite. The story reproduces a quote from 3D Realms' George Broussard explaining why they are staying low-key at this time, as he reveals that they are still not that close to completion:
“IMO, it's more abusive to the community to continue to talk about and show the game when it's not real close to release. What's the point of leading people on? The best thing we can, and should do, is to shut up, finish the game and start showing it and talking about it when it's near enough release that people can actually see light at the end of the tunnel.”

This is ridiculous. When DNF was first announced, I was starting high school. Next year, I'm about to graduate from college. The delays are inexcusable, especially when they hyped it up so much in the beginning. Don't hype stuff unless you're SURE it's gonna get done. Now they go around bitching that everyone's making fun of them and complaining. Well, you know what? They asked for it! Max Payne 2 took us all by storm, and was a great game. I remember there were posts saying "Where the hell did THIS come from?" when it was announced that it went gold. I think GB is finally realizing that this is a joke to the whole gaming community. Even if GB releases the game, and it's semi-decent, no one will ever take him seriously again.

Speaking of over-hyped crappy games... about a year ago I saw a good article on the whole Daikatana fiasco.. why it got pushed back, the story behind it, and everything. However, I lost it and never got around to finishing it. Does anyone have a link to it? I think it was on Gamespy...
