    I've been getting the impression that Apogee has just been 'milking the cow' for some white gold. How much, 10 years development time?

    Let's hope that they indeed get the sources, that way we might actually see the game on the shelves eventually.

    How is the relationship between 3DR and the Apogee that is developing Duke for hand helds?
    Could there be any chance of that Apogee taking up development of DNF? If not, I hope Take2 gets the right, so the game might actually be finished...

    It may get finished, but I'd imagine a heavily cut game if that were the case. I just don't see a major publisher finishing a game knowing it will get the AO rating.

    So I'd expect all the nudity and sex related dialog and scenes to be removed or changed.

    Still be nice to at least play it after all this time.

    Regards,

    The stupid thing about that being that it would probably sell much better with publicity about it being an unabashedly Adult game.

    Aye, which I'm sure is part of what 3DRealms was banking on.

    I just can't see a major publisher (when they have control) finishing an unfinished product and purposely putting out an AO product.

    It's something an independant studio can do. But a publisher takes the risk of having a bad public reception and getting a bad image (deserved or not).

    At least when 3DRealms was still developing this Take Two could take the easy route and just put all the blame on 3DRealms since they didn't fund the project or presumably have any input in design decisions. And just basically working as a distributor and not a publisher.

    Personally I don't think DNF would be the same game with the same machismo if it was cut and censored...

    There's nothing in the trailer or previous games to indicate an AO rating. Really nothing worse than God of War or Conan in there.

    As bizarre as it is, the topless stripper (which is in the trailer too I think?) would probably be enough for AO-rating in this hypocrite world

    How about just releasing two versions? normal edition with less debauchery and an uncut special edition box with gimmicks at a slightly higher price?

    I just saw a comedy movie rated 15 or was it 13 where at a party there where nude chicks walking around in the background with visible breasts and genitals. Kinda funny aint it!?

    Ialso remember how the 7 year old rated 'Scream the Move' crap movie had a penus in a toilet hole penetrating the head of a toilet user and killing him + nipples.

    You mean Scary Movie? That was most certainly R rated.

    Plenty of topless and bottomless women in the aforementioned two M-rated games...

    Well the topless shots for starters would be at least a mature if not AO.

    But then we have from the plot/scene outlines...

    And no idea how explicit the strip club scenes are, or when Duke discovers that women are being abducted and impregnated by the aliens.

    Yeah something similar to how they handled Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude. And edited/censored version, and then the AO version.

    Just breasts and suggestions of sex wouldn't mean an AO rating, since God of War can get away with it with just an 'M'.

    Correct and over here it was from 7 years and up. But heck they show that kind of shit even R is questionable. Seems movies gets a freepass regarding nipples bushes and skin.
