    Anyone else feel that they should just let it die? I love Duke and all (regardless of shit spin offs) but this'll never be what we hope for it to be.

    Even if it's taken this long, I want a new Duke Nuke'em game. Face it, whether or not it's a shooting game, we'll get more of his personality again. I want to see that game come to life, eventually.

    Absolutely. Even if they are going to finish the game eventually, I'm sure most people will be disappointed when it's released.

    It looked pretty damn good in the leaked video, and Take-Two themselves said they were impressed by the gameplay. If there's any chance of a great game coming to the PC (and 360 maybe), Duke Nukem or not, I don't see why it should be left to die.
    And by the sounds of things, Take-Two were struggling in the recession and due to limited resources pulled a fast one on 3D Realms.

    lol Xbox Live fails, they had a video on there last week or the week before talking about how the project had been shelved and the team broken up and moved on to others.

    Maybe by the time Duke Nukem Forever is out I'll have a decent gaming PC [​IMG]. (Although that'll be after I get a stable job + my own place).

    Well personally Ive lost interest in DNF. The leaked vids of it I saw looked ok. Very xbox 1. I dont understand the people who say how amazing it looked, it looked average to me.

    3D Realms and Take-Two arguing in court isnt going to make the game come out any sooner either, this will probably kill it.

    I do find the claim that 3D realms has a load of cash stashed away in an offshore account quite funny though, could this be the most elaborate con in gaming history?

    Are they freakin' retarded?!
    Just drop the damn development, this is ridiculous, my guess is that the lawsuit didn't sound too funny to non of the people involved.

    if u ask me, i think it's pretty useless to even talk about it like it has been happening for years...
    whether it's real or not or true or not cannot be confirmed unless the game is released like forever

    Without Duke Nukem Forever lasting forever, the existance of video games will cease to exist.
    Even reality itself may fall into nothingness if the game ever stops development for real.

    You guys just don't know how important it is to keep DNF in development.
    Our very lives as we know it depend on it's constant never ending development cycle.

    Heck, the video game market would crash completely if it was released. So good that it would be the only game played from then on.
    Its just too devestating.
    It has to go on Forever.
    See the bigger picture.
    It has to keep going.... never stop....

    Course the game could be released and then suck and we'll all get over it.
    Which ever.
