    Another word:

    FAIL!

    It's Daikatana. But yes, it sucked.
    So basically, what everyone is saying is every game delayed for quite some time sucks? DiabloII? Half-Life 2? TF2? Oh my... how they sucked... :eyebrow:

    I don't even believe IT IS being developed.

    BTW, this trailer is much better than the last year trailer

    That trailer is from before Doom3 even. And from the looks of it, it's running on the old Half-Life engine. Figures, huh?

    Oh right, I had forgotten about Duke Nukem... and I probably will again.
    The coffee cup on my desk will erode away to dust before this game hits the shelves...

    Having a better look at the photo... actually come on guys that looks awesome! I'm seriously liking what I'm seeing, even if it is prerendered, they are still awesome monster models!

    sad to say this, but this game is stillborn. I doubt by the time they released the game they'll have 10+ years worth of new stuff to bring to the table. It couldn't have taken hem more than half a year to stitch that image together.

    Yeah, but do you play Time to Kill / Land of the Babes / Manhattan Project?
    Thought not. Why? Because they were crap. Duke 1 and 2 were crap! IMO, 3D Realms just got really lucky with Duke 3D/Atomic Edition/Plutonium Pak.

    I second that but can't help feeling i've seen the abreviation DNF before somewhere else *cough* Did Not Finish *cough*...need i say more?

    Duke will be back, like Bruce Willis in a Die Hard film, he's just waiting for it to be time to kick ass and chew bubblegum again....only problem is, he's still got plenty of gum.

    TTK was fun and a change of pace at the time. I never played LotB and MP I liked because it was Duke meets Contra.

    As for getting lucky with Duke3D, I don't think that was the case. Games like Doom were on the gamers wanted list. Also at the time games like Duke3D were considered taboo and that made people want them even more. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duke3d#Content_and_controversy. Dukes build engine and multiplayer also helped it's success.

    @KITT. Prey got lost in development and still came out. It also got good reviews. So Duke might end up the same way. IMO multiplayer will make or break DNF.

    They started with the original Unreal engine, didn't they? What are they using now? Looks a bit like UE 3.0?

    Yes. Not sure what engine they're on now. I believe this is their 4th engine change for DNF.

    Checked it on Wikipedia (not that reliable, I know...) and yes, seems to be UE3.0, heavily customized as one would expect.

    I still think we'll see UE4.0 (or whatever its name might be) before the release of DNF.... sadly.
