    Amazon UK Duke Nukem Pre-Order

    This was posted in the thread at EB about Q4, I was sort of afraid to post it here for fear of being ridiculed...but then figured if nothing else it's been a while since we did a Duke Nukem thread. ;)

    Thoughts, witticisms?

    Official date? No? Then why do we care?

    3DR still says "When It's Done."

    That pre-order has been up there in one form or another for a couple of years. They just put it up with a vague date to get it into their stock system, and then wait for the preorders. It probably appeared that way on a release schedule from Take 2 at the beginning of the year, and it's never changed because no one has any idea when it will really be done.

    I actually still hope they'll release a killer game eventually.

    By the time Duke Nukem Forever ships, no one will be left alive who remembers the franchise.

    www.tombstonemod.com - full engine mod though, not just SDK. Working on a graphics/networking revamp right now, so those screenshots will look like crap compared to what'll be released anyhow (but it'll still look like crap compared to next-gen titles, but who cares :wink:)

    I got 3 words to say about DN4E releasing on 2nd december: no FOOKIN' way. :lol:

    At this rate I'd be surprised if it makes it out in first half of '06. Even though 3DR knows better by now than flapping their lips about their game before it's done, they still have to build some kind of anticipation (and dare I say, hype) before it's released, because all Duke is right now is the longest running joke in the industry.

    They have to counter that attitude somehow, and how to do that other than releasing screenies, previews etc or maybe a test version like the original Duke3D? They can't just release the finished game on the shelves when they're done with it, sales would totally bomb.

    Also, it'd better be DEBUGGED properly too, considering how long they've been "polishing" it... :lol:

    Heh, they still have the old screenshots even. I'm guessing that site has had that "release date" posted since 2002.

    What a waste of a game title, a favorite FPS among my friends and we still have our pre-orders in going on 4 years now. With the success from the original I can't believe no other publisher has stepped up to the plate to get the project moving.
