Question What do we want to see in this game?
This has to be the biggest question of all on this thread
i mean cmon what do we actually want out of this game?

well heres what i want

A multiplayer mode called Everybody's a chuck norris where the mightyboot is the only weapon and its an instagib weapon
I want the same feel i get from playing duke3d
I want very similar gameplay to duke3d
I dont want this to end up like serious sam 2
I want a large,cool,powerful arsenal
I want about 20 different enemy types some big,most medium and some small
I want a few button puzzles
Some Huge scary bosses (not like the ones in ss2) like the ones the last d3d had
I want cool,large,explorable,non linear levels
I want it to be atleast 20-22 hours long with 30 levels
I still want duke to have his same look
I still want them to keep the d3d teleportation sound (its just classic)
I want some good new jokes making fun of todays games and quite alot of natural,witty humour (nothing too childish like some of the jokes in ss2)
I dont mind a little bit of cartoony but not as much as ss2
I want to see some portal technology like in prey (cos id like to fire a rocket through a transporter like in d3d where it could come through another teleporter )
Id like a points system (for the sake of it)
Id like to see a map editor like build but with a few modern things added in
Id like to have a C++ coding system (for modding)
Secondary fire
Bullet Time
Secret Levels
an ingame mp3 player incase the music is crap
A BRILLIANT GAME!

Now heres a list of guns im sure we'd all like to see in the game

Mighty Boot
Chainsaw
Original D3D pistol
Akimbo D3d pistol
Original D3D shotgun
Akimbo D3D shotgun
RPG (with a new look)
Shrinker (with new look)
OMA (one man army) assault cannon (its a fusion of a ripper and a devastator)
Flechette Uzi
Akimbo Flechette Uzis
Freezer
Flame cannon (first attack could be a flamethrower second attack spits balls of flame that bounce around setting fire to everything then explode into a massive fire)
Pipe bomb
Hell Raiser (fires a big orange ball of death which creates a massive explosion of death)
Tripwire bomb
ABD (A Buzzing Death) rifle (shoots long range beams of electricity and has a sniper scope)
and mabye some more

I wouldnt mind seeing some vehicles either
like

ExoSuit
Tank
Dukes ship
Hover Craft

I do realise that you cant have anything and im sorry if im so demanding but these are just suggestions for a brilliant game

and if it did include this stuff it would take 2 years to make

anyway what would any of you like to see

It's been taking 10 years so far, so unless they can build a time machine with your ideas, no(unless you're talking about just your stuff)...

Oh come on - This "what do we want to see" stuff has been spread out over numerous topics multiple times.

Anyhoo, I agree with crunchy superman.

I figure they didn't need my advice to make DN3D one of the best games I've ever played, and that this logic would hold true for DNF.

This kind of question is death. When you set up a huge list of expectations like that, we'll probably fail, because there will be one small thing on your list we don't do, and that will make you say "It's good but..."

It's better to go into it without expectations and take it as it comes, as opposed to having a big list of things you go "Check, OK - they put that in, OK, that's in too, etc..."

No, that was long ago, with different engine limitations and overall different decisions. I personally think it will be in.

Re: what do we actually want to see out of this game?
come to think of it, all i want to see from this game ist that it shows the other FPS designers how it's done. I'd like to see this game pushing the standerts up to a new level and keeping it that way.
I really trust these guys in their work and I don't see why I should be dissapointed. We don't know that much about the game in total (HOW COULD WE) and I'm pretty sure that most of us will be blasted by this masterpiece...............when it's done of cource...

Re: what do we actually want to see out of this game?
personnaly I fear of seeing it being like duke 3d...it would be good but not as good as it could be..

for me f.e.a.r. is a bit following the idea of interactivity of duke 3d.. everything reacts when you shoot(smoke, papers, holes etc...).. this was a improvment in time of duke 3d.. duke 3d also had innovative weapon in it's time... but now we see at least 1 special weapon in every game..
so , if dnf actually plays like duke 3d.. it will be a bit to common..
that's why i hope for improvement in interactivity and gameplay which would separate this game from the others..

The game is so hyped already by it's own history that unless it's nothing short of revolutionary and breathtaking some people are going to be at least a little bit disappointed.

For me though (if I draw a parallel with the Star Wars prequels) all they have to do is sidestep the Jar Jar landmine and I'm golden.

in reply to post above me

well put out

and i would say serious sam 2 hit a jarjar landmine kind of thing
(as in its too goofy and cartoony)

of course thats not what we want and will NEVER happen....probably

and by the way the only expectation on my list now is a good,action filled,classic game that im hoping will be DNF

Just take DN3D

It had bloody chunks and you could blow enemies into pieces. You have big huge screens (level 4, episode 3) with animation on it. You have working cameras, you have badass weapons, excelent level design, that makes level fun and enjoyable, even when you replay the game, shiet load of secrets, sound systeme that changes when you are underwater or in a echoing room, and a better interactivity than some of todays game.

And then i wait DNF, exceptating minimal things.

there could be a special mode where we would play the game with a randomly generated level, randomly generated story, and randomly generated quest.. nothing would make sens and it would be funny..
but for randomly generated level in the standard game.. I'd like to see that well done in 10 years.. but now it would look bad I think..

PC gaming is toast! costs to keep up with new hardware and developers seeing sales 800% below console sales means DNF will be XBOX360..etc.

Shame really!

Nah, DNF for PC comes first, but that doesn't mean that I don't want it to appear in 360.

LOL! This could be done as a mutator very easily! *awesome* idea.

Edit: Scratch instagib, set the force applied by the boot to something stupidly high, and with ragdoll physics on...

When Duke Kicks fairy dust should fling from his foot and he should be able to spin around then start dancing causing all of the bad guys to join in then when the dance is over they all fall down and die. Just like in the Micheal Jackso MoonWalker beat em up video game.

It installed on my hard-drive and me playing it, with my FPS2000Digital speakers cranked all the way, my face 8 inches from my 19" monitor. That's what I want to see out of this game.

I'm sure he just means "like Duke3D" by level locations (ie stripclubs and urban areas), level design and style. All the rest, Next-gen!

This mod has just got to be made.

Add a weapon switch key first.

Fists:
Normal fire - Punch in the mush
Melee key- [held] chin crack (sends player flying up a few feet)
Alt fire - Flying headbutt!

Boots:

Normal fire - Kick in the mush
Melee key - Kick in the crotch
Alt-fire - Roundhouse kick!! Needs to be charged up by hitting people shortly beforehand, hits all people in an X yard radius, knocking them flying.

Blows should slow down the player depending on how hard they hit.


I'd play it.

yes but in my opnion he also meant.. as simple as duke, simple inventory, simple one liner.. 2 way to reach the end of the level in most case, and bosses at the end of episodes or something similar(always at the end of something ).. that's it..

for exemple.. I find doom 3 a bit like doom 1.. so it stayed in my opinion close to the original.. but in it's time doom 1 was really great.. doom 3 seems too common except for it's graphic engine which is getting old so very fast..

so that's the problem actually, if duke just stays like duke 3d.. it will get old very fast even if it has very nice next-gen graphics..

its like watching a movie...

Everybody's ALWAYS going to be like..."well it sucked cuz of this..." or
"it was good but..." or the people who think it is great ...JUST becuase its a duke nukem game...
We all hope it will be the best game ever...and that dnf will have stuff 'never before seen' in a fps...but honestly...

When it comes down to it...DNF is JUST another FPS. Get over it. It WONT deliver what your dreaming about.
It WILL be a GREAT game...its just not going to make you crap your pants though...(those games are gonna be another 10 years out...) (MY OPINION)



It will play like a half life 2 game...with all the bells & whistle taken from
duke3d. (imo) Duke3d was a classic, and trying to re-make something that was special WONT happen. 3drealms really f-up with dnf...peoples hopes are WAY too high!

If DNF is as entertaining as 'metal gear solid'...ill be happy!

perfect example...doom 3

The first DOOM 1 & 2...were classics. I have some kind of 'mental bond' with that game...Growing up playing and listening to Nine inch nails...it was great! I was hooked! Its a friggin classic...then they announced DOOM 3.
"WOW! HOLY SHIZIT!" I was floored by the thought of playing the new and improved doom....but look what happened!!!!!! Doom 3 was a bore! It had great graphics, and THATS ALL!
