I pre ordered it at Funco Land in 2001. I waited nearly 18 months and release date upon release date came and went. In the end Funco land went out of business leaving me screwed out of $35.

TBH if this game does come out there is absolutely no way I am paying for it, no matter who makes it and releases it.

Hmm. Fond memories perhaps?

All of the tech videos I saw for Duke looked no better than what we had. They wouldn't, they all used engines used ages ago in other games.

That's the problem now. The entire FPS genre has been done to death and they would need to literally come up with something that will make your eyes bleed for people to sit up and pay attention.

Doom is and always was a bit basic and a bit pants. That's why Duke was so cool in the early 90s because it offered far more to do than Doom did. Doom 3 was shown up to be the shallow game it was when it was released, by what? Half Life 2. Simply because Doom underneath had not changed and it was woefully out of date.

And I fear that is exactly what would happen if some one was to finally get a new Duke Nukem game out. You would play it and before long realise that it really wasn't any different than what you have been playing for over a decade and likely nowhere near as good as the top flight FPS you already have (Unreal latest version, Halo, etc etc).

They will literally need to pull off a miracle.

*whispers* - I never rated Half-Life as a game. UT2004 rocks my socks still.

Yeah I know VB. Not liking a game because it's not your cup of tea is fine

What I meant was there is a game for every one now, and DN would have trouble competing. I remember the excitement before Doom 3 came out and saying "Wow this is going to be the most amazing game ever !". Somehow I had forgotten just how far things had progressed and how there were plenty of versions of Doom before Doom 3 that were all poo (Doom 64, Doom on the PSX, etc etc). And sure as eggs whilst it was absolutely visually stunning within two days I stopped playing it.

I remember once Jeremy Clarkson was saying how people raved on about classic cars. How they said "They don't make them like that any more !". However, put a Jaguar E type against an F40 and, well, it would lose.. Horribly.

It would be like putting Rocky Marciano in the ring with a young at his best Mike Tyson. Some things do not age well and contrary to belief things do actually improve.

I hope they don't go to press with it and leave it alone tbh. I would rather the dissapointment of that than them actually releasing a game that was even more of a dissapointment.

EDIT. Actually it was all of the above that stopped 3Drealms ever finishing it. Every time they thought they had something new and cool some one would release something that made it look crap and dated. Ye Olde Travelator Syndrome. Keep watching the time fly by but never get off.

Duke Nukem absolutely should be left to rot. I never thought the original was that good. When you compared it to Doom it just seemed to be sold on the fact that there was something a little titillating in it.

However once Kingpin was released (and what a game THAT was) then any language based barriers had been blown away totally. Soldier of Fortune then annihilated any gore based limits gaming might have, and the moment people worked out nude skins for games then any porn limits were gone too.

So what has Duke Nukem left to offer?

An arse-kicking hero? We've had umpteen ones. Not my bag but Gears of War and Halo apparently have heroes.

Epic graphics? See Far Cry 2 or Battlefield Bad Company 2 et al.

Big weapons? Not sure if much trumps Unreal Tournaments Redeemer.

Cool weapons? Gravity Gun anybody?

All in all it's pointless. The amount of people around who played the original are tiny, and everyone else will wonder (coughDaikatanacough) what the fuss is all about.

And yes, Doom 3 sucks. But it sucked instantly. Oh it's all dark. Whoo. Well done. Oh and I have "jump" moments too? Well nothing beats the dogs coming through the window in the original Resident Evil or being hunted on the Marsh level of Doom 2.

I shall now go and sit in the grumpy old man corner having mentioned a ton of games very few people (although I know you will AlienALX) have even heard of, much less played .
