After repeatedly announcing and deferring release dates, 3D Realms announced in 2001 that it would be released simply "when it's done". In May 2009, 3D Realms was downsized for financial reasons, resulting in the loss of the game's development team. Statements by the company indicated that the project was due to go gold soon with pictures of final development. Take-Two Interactive, which owns the publishing rights to the game, filed a lawsuit in 2009 against 3D Realms over their failure to finish development. 3D Realms retorted that Take-Two's legal interest in the game is limited to their publishing right. The case was settled with prejudice and details undisclosed in May 2010. On September 3, 2010, after 13 years, Duke Nukem Forever was officially reported by 2K Games to be in development at Gearbox Software. It was originally confirmed to be released on May 3, 2011 in North America, with a worldwide release following on May 6, 2011. This has however been delayed by a month to June 10 internationally with a North American release on June 14. On May 24, 2011, it was announced that Duke Nukem Forever finally went gold after 14 years. After going gold the launch trailer for Duke Nukem Forever was released on June 2, 2011.
Seriously dude next you gonna call Serious Sam crap.
If you really want the game for its FPS style and not its playthough go do some CoD with the other kiddies.
Games like these are for pure enjoyment none of your elitist sounding multiplayer crap. Hey at least its released and it plays decent cant you learn to enjoy a game and not think because you cant enlarge your epenis with stuff like ranks that its bad.
I've played it (the beginning) and I must say i'm kinda disapponted.
I don't know, I wasn't expecting too much, but my main problems are:
1) 2 weapons? Why just two f-cking weapons? Damn you Halo! DN was fun with all those weapons, but now I can just hold two of'em?
2) The weapons don't have the same "impact". You don't feel like holding the weapon, they are kinda generic. There is no "bumps" and "trunks" or something.
3) The HUD sucks. Majorly.
4) Where is my kick??? Now i hit with the weapon, just like all these generic-CoD-copies?
I hope the final build is better, because as it is now, Serious Sam is much better (by the way, I really like Serious Sam. I think he's the DN replacement).
Yeah, I played this earlier (I'm in the early access thing from Borderlands GOTY) and it was surreal to play it after all this time. The game itself is a fairly generic shooter, but it was quite an experience to hear the Duke again. I might buy it just on the nostalgia factor; being generic doesn't instantly make it bad, and I'm willing to give it a chance.
As a side note, I was also quite disappointed by the 2 weapons thing. Unfortunately, it is being released on consoles as well, so that's what we have to work with.
