What about Duke Nukem: Zero Hour?
The Duke Nukem game for the 64 that was actually in 3D.

This is why I asked. Only thing I know about it was that I used to own it, and it had the 3DRealms logo on it. That is all.

Oh, and that there weren't any strippers, but there was awesome posters everywhere.

There name was on it cause its their IP and they probably had some input in what they wanted to see and not see. Also probably ideas would have to be approved by them.

When/if 3DRealms does get the chance to finish the game... I think any announcements... should be subtle. Not big, overdone blow ups.

The thing people misunderstand is that the "revolutionary" nature of Avatar was in the use of real-time rendering and having live-action actors playing against motion-capture.

Although somewhat obvious, it was him who insisted on it, supposedly.

Point is, he wasn't actively working on it in the interim period.

Just like the way the developers were slacking in between engine changes?

I dunno, people criticized this movie for taking forever.... was it over-budget and under delivered? probably, but people liked it, and he did a good job making sure it was good.

and DNF developers "insisted" on having a motion capture thing. I remember a couple years back when they posted those pics of the of the guy in the CGI point suit.

Re: how would you like DNF being revealed?
ok I'm going to point out which companies made what duke nukem games since there seems too be a lot of confusion regarding this issue. duke nukem 1&2 were developed by appogee software(the original name of 3drealms) duke nukem3d was developed under the 3drealms name (the saturn version was developed by Lobotomy Software and the megadrive/genesis version was developed by tec toy) Time to kill and land of the babes were developed by n-space. Duke nukem zero hour was developed by eurcom. duke nukem (gameboy version) and duke nuke advance were developed by Torus games. and the upcoming duke nukem trilogy is being developed by Frontline studios.

Re: how would you like DNF being revealed?
While I like the idea of a casual, low-key release, I think that in practice it wouldn't make sense. Doing so would have one of two effects. Either only the fans who've been waiting 14 years for the game (I'm counting from the release of DN3D, because that's certainly when I started wanting a sequel) would know about it or news would explode over the net and the whole idea of a low-key release would disappear anyway.

I don't really care if they don't say anything about the release and I find DNF one day while browsing in a game shop or if they use the entire visible surface of the moon for announcing the release and have an opening ceremony bigger than the last Olympic opening ceremony, broadcast on every TV channel in the world. I'd be happy with the game being released. Even if it's only available on floppy disk. "Insert disk 17 of 6032". Well, OK, maybe not then

All I want is a legitimate trailer at E3 saying at the end to be released on MM/DD/YYYY or DD/MM/YYYY.

Make a Duke Nukem live action movie (they already did Doom, so why not Duke) and at the end, in the credits, have text saying "Duke Nukem Forever will be available in stores, starting Monday, next week".

They are making a movie, it is supposed to expand the Duke Storyverse.
Remember that Apogee has been searching for a person to play a Live Action Duke.
they have to get the Duke Universe sorted out so they don't flop like most other video game movies.

Trust me we will not be disappointed with future Duke Projects.
we just have to wait it out, "eventually" we will have the greatest game ever created.

That's not what he said... in fact he did not wait for the technology, he helped create it. Was he filming for 15 years? No, I didn't say that. My point stands, it took him a very,very long time to create Avatar - and it cost a ton of money to create...

- additionally, he was "working on it" at least 5 years, but apparently preparing for it for several years following writing it, including involvement with developing the cameras while he was still doing the exploration ( He likes Underwater exploration, George likes Poker, a small studio, and changing game engines to keep up with technology ), during that time, and I fail to see how this doesn't relate to my point about something taking so long doesn't mean that it fails,

or doesn't live up to it's expectations because it took forever. It was a good comparison, you took my words, diced them, and posted some other argument which really doesn't matter anyway... and I've been over this already with another nay-sayer. Yes, the hype engine has been running longer for DNF. So What? Things can take time. I just don't believe that it'll have a damn thing to do with the end result, except perhaps, make it better...

Quote:
James Cameron: "Well, it's not like I was sitting there watching Jeopardy and buffing my nails for 15 years. You know, first of all, I wrote this in 1995. It was right before I made Titanic, and so this was going to be the film I did after Titanic. But then when I did Titanic, I fell in love with the whole process of deep ocean expeditions and I went on six expeditions after I made the Titanic film, the last one was in 2005. And in fact, the second I finished that last expedition I started on Avatar. And you know I was sort of developing the 3-D camera technology with Vince Pace, my technology partner in this camera project, and that's what we used in Avatar to shoot with. So it all, for me, it's right on schedule. And now we have about 7,600 3-D screens, beautiful digital screens worldwide, so now there's a place to play the movie. That didn't exist two or three years ago, so I think the timing couldn't be better actually."

Re: how would you like DNF being revealed?
talking about DNF again. Changes are good that it will be finished this year or early 2011. If they want to make a Dec 2011 release I wonder when they want to start the hype machine?! Its only 5 months left! Or will they miss 2010 also?!
What do you guys think about the pre release marketing strategy. Will 3DR go the one to two month pre release bombshell reveal or will they announce it lets say 6 months before release?

This information is crucial to get an idea when we can expect the DNF news.

3 weeks from now when LAN players from all over the planet descend into Texas for QuakeCon, they are greeted by a huge banner with Nuclear symbols on each end.... and it says "It's Done"

and they have a full weekend playing DNF MP but no Single player action yet -

they save that for the big Steam launch event where they sell the full game for $50, and the first 1,500 buyers get to compete in a DNFMP tournament for an Alienware computer and 100 pounds of Bacon.

You might want to state the source so we won't fall into another scenario like the one KaiserSoze caused thanks to his "Duke IP being sold" rumor.

No offense, Kaiser, just saying.

Yeah, that would be nice, but very unlikely.

Could be nice to have a Duke.CON to rival that of QuakeCon (notice the .Con, kinda reminds me of one of the mod files from Duke 3D, making it clever).
