Default Did hell freeze over?

Today, I bought the most recent issue of a local gaming magazine.

When I came back home, I've popped the cover DVD into my drive and looked at the list of contents.

Fast forward to Trailers.

Fast forward down the list.

And the whole world turned upside down.

Because, you know what happened?

The oldest "still being worked on" piece of vaporware known to Man...

... precisely that! ...


Just got an official trailer with some (apparently) in-game graphics.

Meheh, he's always comes back, always and always, that's apparently all he can do.

BTW, in dec2007 there was a trailer on shacknews:

Many believes it's a joke.
Ah, Nessie in her loch Ness and DNF ... two of a kind.

There was also a nice recent rumour this week at gamespot that was reporting that the game might see the light cough cough in 2008.


Turns out that the news was simply a goal set out by Take Two that was misread, by the Dallas Business Journal, at this point the only time I will believe the game will ever come out, is when I go to the store and see it on shelve.

http://www.last.fm/user/DeathDude/ Upcoming Concerts will be attending 5/10/08: Dream Theater, 5/12/08: Gigantour, 5/16/08: Nightwish, 5/27/08: Rush, 6/5/08 and 6/6/08: Iron Maiden!!, 7/27/08: Judas Priest

If it will indeed 'come back', then it'll have to be redone basically from scratch. Everything that was shown last time it was previewed is completely and utterly outdated now.

I don't know what to think of it, honestly. I seriously doubt it'll live up to the hype, if it ever sees the light (which I find rather unlikely, too). Also, 2008? I don't think so, unless they've been working on it secretly for years (with an engine that isn't surpassed by Half-Life's).

I say that when Duke Nukem Forever comes out is when the Pope gets laid. In other words NEVER. Its like waiting for Starfox 2 to come out on the Snes system.

Hate to burst your bubble: the man gets laid already.

But yeah DNF will always take FOREVER (how else did you think they came up with the title)...

Well if they ever manage to finally release the title, it probably wouldn't be so different from the story of Daikatana's development, only that Duke Nukem worked-on-forever would probably be even worse due to numerous rewritings of levels and story. In my opinion those who are working on this game are simply so bored with it that they have troubles to come up with good and / or fresh ideas for it, hence the numerous re-starts.
They would be better advised to dump that piece of software junk into a garbage bin and start something new, at least then that would stop them to be laughed out by everyone.
