Interesting! – Duke Nukem Forever Game-Play

10 05 2009

Duke Nukem Forever is a game that has been in development for nearly a decade and a half.  When you take that into consideration, it means that the game has gone through three system generations.  A lot has changed since the Nintendo 64/PlayStation One days and it is interesting to see how far along the game has come since then.  The following video is a little taste of what the “current” Duke Nukem Forever is, and I must say it looks pretty damn good for a thirteen year old (development wise) game.

Thanks to Youtube for the link.

Now that 3D Realms has shut its doors, who will pick up where they left off?  Please, somebody finish this game already.  The Duke deserves better than this!





Duke Nukem to Live On? — We Should Hope So

Interesting news on the gaming front today.  Supposedly long time developer 3D Realms closed its doors this week, leaving a lot of people speculating if Duke Nukem would go with it.  It wasn’t until Take-Two stepped in that we got a clear answer: nope, well not yet anyway.  It looks like the game that has been in development for thirteen years now, Duke Nukem Forever, will continue its slow development under the publishing license of Take-Two.

We can breathe a sigh of relief for now, since who doesn’t want to see Duke Nukem “Fornever” see the light of the day.  Though I’m sure we’ll all miss making fun of it’s slow development time once it makes its debut sometime in 2020.  Now that I think about it, I wonder if I ever got a refund from Babbages for when I reserved this game back in 1998 . . . oh well can’t remember.
