    Surely they should have noticed several years ago that DNF was going nowhere? Seems like this effort is a little too late...

    Some leaked footage of DNF has started appearing on the web. It looks far from finished, but they had some awesome ideas.

    A law suit will probably take forever as well.

    This is fair enough, I feel. Hopefully Take Two will get some of their money back. If it was EA, I'd care less, but Take Two generally publish fairly good games.

    If that game came out, I would surely buy it... Always loved the Duke, a game with so many years in development... they must of had GREAT ideas for the game... I don't think that they we're scratching their balls for that long... I just hope Take Two gets the franchise and just make the damn game...

    Good luck with getting anything.

    At best they can pick up the Duke franchise, I expect.

    Please don't give them the franchise. Rather let the Duke die now. If it's not developed by 3D Realms/Apogee it just won't be the same. :(

    I hope they get that. And i really think Take two was kind of "benevolent" believing in 3d realms. I think they DESERVE their money back.

    Anyway, i hope some SERIOUS developer take over Duke.... As long as it's not Bethesda... Can you imagine? Oblivion with guns and Aliens?
    It would be like hearing Duke saying:
    "Your mommy is ugly" to an alien instead of "I am here to kick ass and chew bubble gum. And I am out of gum!"

    Is it obvious that i hate Bethesda?

    Take Two don't really deserve compensation at this point. It was clear about six years ago that this game was not going to materialise but they kept pouring money into it. Heck, I was looking through the penny arcade archives the other day and they were making jokes about that game 9 years ago.

    Yup!

    If they don't use Jon St. John for Dukes voice, it's pointless to even make the game. His voice is unique to the industry and defines Duke. I'd rather Duke Nukem die off then become a casual lame cash cow like Fallout 3. It also has to have an epic DukeMatch (multiplayer). Do it right or not at all.

    The game playing public knew DNF was a running joke. 3D Realms probably knew it was nothing more than a joke. It started to look like a joke 11 long years ago. Take-Two must be the only people on earth who believed this game would be finished and released. They don't deserve a penny from 3D Realms. What they deserve is a slap for being so bloody stupid for investing anything in the game. IDIOTS!

    lol they got pawned :)

    Did they really think DNF was a real investment?

    3D Realms would have been laughed out of the Dragons Den. :)

    3DRealms blew it. They were one of the leading companies in the FPS gaming industry and because of George Broussard they died. They should of released DNF on the HL engine (Most complete Duke Build) back in 01 and then started working on another Duke.

    I remember Duke from N64. What was it... Zero Hour? That was a fun multiplayer game.

    i think if Take-Two get hold of DNF they should make the build to at least HL2 standards, keep the overall DNF gameplay and release it, make one hell of an overdue game, but a game of most likely EPIC proportions, if they get it out and have at very most just half the success of CoDMW then it'll be enough to ensure that Duke lives on
