Duke Nukem Forever has been released. Somehow, pigs are grounded, hell is still fiery, and monkeys remain in people's anuses. I'm not sure if I'll play it or not, but this is historical, isn't it? After 14 years, a development cycle almost as old as me *shudder* it's out. Any particular thoughts on this? (I just saw there was no DNF thread and figured I may as well post something)

    I remember playing the Duke on the good old Playstation One (the big, grey one): 'Time to Kill' and 'Land of the Babes'. Ahh.. those were the days.

    I finished it. Game if fun almost in every moment. My suggestion is that every guy needs to play it. Game is amazing!! But the only thing I don't like is because it's short, you can finish it in 7 or 8 hours.

    I suppose you could say it wasn't really 14 years in development; Gearbox only picked it up a few years ago, but I suppose they did have 3D realms' code
    Well, maybe the bread. Maybe.

    I should get it... Someone tell me about the multiplayer, if it's cool I might buy it. If not, then I guess i'll just rent it.

    They switched engines a lot during those 14 years. The current DNF is roughly 3-4 years of work on that, excluding 'storyline' and most concept art.

    True, old Duke was longer. 14 years of development for 7-8 hrs of playing?...quite little. They pick our moneys for DLCs rather than make longer story

    Shit list:

    - Duke can carry only two guns
    - Multiplayer is averagely boring
    - It's a console port which breaks alot for PC users, including controls, gameplay, movement
    - Graphics are OK
    - The "mighty boot" is gone

    On the other hand, it's a nostalgic game. Duke still says some funny shit once in a while, and the bosses are kind of cool. There's also a lot of tits in the game.

    Wait for the prices to drop before you buy it. Right now it's not really worth the money.

    To anyone interested, here's a guy with a lengthy video explaining all the pro's and con's of the game.

    Youtube Link

    Truthfully, I don't mind linear games. I love the linearity of Half-Life, Halo and other games of the sort but judging from this video; it's too linear.

    And yeah, what the poster above me said, the mighty boot is gone. That's a shame. It was a nice alternative to what you'd see in most fps's (elbow hit or knife slash).

    I hate TotalHalibut. Just because of him, everyone whines that DNF is a bad game, I've seen people on the steam forum arguing over how shitty it is. but when i check their steam profile THEY HAVENT EVEN PLAYED THE GAME.

    JESUS TOTALHALIBUT. YOU HAVE BRAIN WASHED 80 PROCENT OF THE COMMUNITY YOU DOUCHEBAG!

    I had to say that.

    Didn't play the first and I'm not usually impressed by more juvenile humor but I'll give it a go if I come by it. Reserving judgement really

    The price is only 38 bucks on gamespot store, although the game got a 3 out of 10 on gamespot I think that reviewers were way too harsh on the game because it is an amazing game, and I love seeing duke on the big screen I don't care about the graphics, some who had high expectations for it never played the entire series of duke to be quite honest, they just heard about it.

    Edit: How to I get out of this quote? this code is confusing!


    There's tons of reviews that critique DNF harshly so I find it hard to believe that he alone is to blame.

    I personally haven't seen any other videos of this guy and although I can't say I like him, you can't deny the bad things he mentioned about the game to be true.

    As for the people saying a game is bad when they haven't played it, well, I can understand your frustration but you don't have to experience something in order to know where you'd like it or not. Some times you just know you wouldn't like it.

    I haven't played most of the games the "Angry Video Game Nerd" reviewed but I know from looking at it and hearing out his opinions that they are bad games.

    I don't think DNF is a bad game just because of reviews but it's definitely not what it should be. It will probably even get better with age once everything cools down but in the meantime, the developers should at least try to save the game through future updates if they ever hope to make another Duke Game again.

    My personal Update wish list:

    - The Duke's signature "Mighty boot" replaces that generic elbow meelee attack.

    - Able to use more than 2 weapons

    - Less linear levels (even if it's just few different paths here and there)

    - Mod support to add longevity to game/multiplayer
