This.

People finally settled down, when Scott popped out telling us the game is still being developed, posted a new screen, teased stuff... you guys know the rest. Until there's no connection with what's said by George and Scott, it's hard to stop thinking, hoping, dreaming, or call it how you want. What's the point in Scott teasing the game if we can't know anything?

I would not be surprised (though a bit startled) if this whole thing would be revealed as a hoax or similar (not that it will, of course...), or if the release date is announced in some glorious way (for example at E3). You talk about reason? This is not reason, this is madness.

How is it going by the way, Joe, have you found any new job yet?
I didn't pick up any "offensiveness" in there and I think you made yourself pretty clear. I have to partly agree with you. When the dev team was let go and the studio shut down I thought "well thats the nail in the coffin...for a while at least." Then the lawsuit even further entrenched that thought in my mind...

Now bring in all the teasing from Scott on Facebook...He's leading all the fans on ... and if it comes out to be some giant #$^@-tease and nothing comes of it, the backlash is going to result in the loss of pretty much everyone thats followed Duke through thick and thin. You simply don't do that after this long, meaning that he's feeding tidbits of information without good reason. To do so would be slapping everyone in the face.

Personally I think it's flat out wrong to lead fans on with little pieces of information here and there without any solid information. Some people say, "Wow, look, the studio and everyone in it got scrapped - is that enough for you to believe it's over?" And then everyone sees what Scott is posting on FB and....well what do people believe? I think it's pretty far-fetched to believe this is all a hoax and I do not personally believe that. I do believe everyone got canned. But what happened since? To be? Not to be?

I don't mean to have a sour or snide attitude here because I don't at all. I understand there's a lawsuit involved, but bottom line is this: Put up or shut up. It's very simple.

E3 - Electronic Entertainment Expo, the world's premiere event for the interactive entertainment industry. Spanning over a week, various different companies in the industry get together and show new products, concepts and ideas. This year E3 will be held at Los Angeles Convention Center between June 15-17. Among the many exhibiting companies, there is Take-Two, which I will be covering in this thread.

The "closure" of 3D Realms was in May 2009, and the news of this became of course Hot Coffee, for all parties really. Dating E3 2009 to June 2-4, which Take-Two also attended, the media etc. got roughly a month to prepare questions regarding the status of 3D Realms and the heavily anticipated Duke Nukem Forever. As I was not attending E3 that year (I work within the industry), I cannot account for any discussions that happened at Take-Two's booth/meeting room, but I could sure bet a nickel or two that there were some feisty happenings there. If the trendsetting Take-Two decides to continue there strategy with impairment of Duke Nukem and 3D Realms, this year's E3 could see even more anger, confusion and delay.

It has been argued that the alleged court date for the case between 3D Realms and Take-Two could be in the middle of the year, somewhere around the time of E3. Say that this is not the case and that the court date is eventually postponed some months. What effects could this have upon Take-Two's performance at E3 seeing as they would have to probably fend off some unwelcome questions? Considering that major video game sites such as IGN, GameTrailers, GameSpot and similar are usually documenting live from the show, there could be many raised eyebrows about this suggested scenario, and that would not be good for Take-Two's reputation.

I might be attending E3 this year and I'm hoping to dig something up about all this hiatus. But what do you think, if this whole thing continues without a visible end (before June), could Take-Two eventually be forced to do something about it (drop the charges, allow 3D Realms to release media etc.)?

I think that it is a rather bold thing of Take-Two to attend at E3 because of what has been going on for some time. Who knows, perhaps it's done and that E3 will be the place where Duke can park his bricks.

This was a waste why even bother typing all this krap? Your not thinking clearly or you dont read the forums.

They haven't shown DNF at e3 FOR YEARS. I mean YEARS. It simply isn't logical to think that they will show DNF when there is no dev team.

Full Dev team for years = No DNF
No dev team at all = ZOMG GUYZ IT'S COMING TO E3

Re: Always bet on E3 2010?
If Joe is right, then that's even more reason to back Take 2 in the court case. If we can't take a hint that 3DR is up feces creek with no hope of finishing DNF, I see no fault in what Take 2 is doing. Especially with all the crap that SM is teasing us with.

It's funny Joe comes here and tries to put some reason in us, while other people from 3DR tease the crap out of us fans. I guess we'll never see DNF now.

Didn't you ban everyone who ever expressed any doubt that the game would be released? So don't act surprised if the people you have left have an irrational faith that it's coming out.

No. If someone gets banned, it's means they are being a right jackass.

There is no reason to expect DNF at this years' E3. You're just setting yourself up for disappointment by wishing it.

Re: Always bet on E3 2010?
well I said I will quit checking these forums every day if we don't have some substential news by January, and I'm still here. Although I'm veeerrry confident that we will see DNF this year, I wouldn't jump of a bridge if its get delayed to summer 2011. As SphinX said, I'm used to it.

I have to add. Seing back to 2005, when I joined these forums for the first time... checking them every single day often multiple times, with all the up and downhill development in the last 5 years...seing the light at the end of the tunnel...and then the lawsuit happening (that just needed to happen, in the sight of DNF's unusual development history).
Can it get any worser? No, its all uphill from now.

If we are lucky 3DR has the media for the resolve of the court case already prepared...(George having a ton of work to do and finishing it, Scott teasing us with D-Day and a some kind of trailer)

Stay tuned for shock and awe...its' just a matter of some months now, I'm sure of!

Always bet on Duke!

well if the lawsuit is setlled and Scott just denies that because he is bound to NDA, you can call that jerking with us. I would call it the thing he need to do, to not get into trouble.

But I think even if its not setlled that he doesn't jerk around with us for lols. He is a game loving businessman with lot of creativity! He also is a very nice guy to talk to. Why would he jerk us after all the mess that happened? He would loose potential customers too, most importantly the biggest fan base out there.

Scott is just a genious that is bound to some business stuff lately. He would love to release some big news!

If I was in his position. I would love jerking around the fans of a product that I know will never come out. Why? Because the fans can't do anything about it. What are they going to do. Boycott my product I'm not releasing?

It's very lolable. 3DR has been in the shit for a few months shy of a year now (I know pretty fast year) and you guys are still holding on for the ******* game. It's not coming. I know it sucks. I don't like it either. But you guys are still scrounging the internet for hope that it will come out over thinking everything Scott and George post. It's so easy to troll you guys why wouldn't they. Provides awesome lols.

TLDR: Move the **** on.
