That's why I said an empty packet of chewing gum.

Also because I think it would be problematic to ship a game containing something edible.

Ever open a pack of baseball cards, Angilion?

I don't remember games coming with neat stuff ever since Infocom went out, and I don't even remember anyone else copying Infocom. Basically, though, I think retail games are pretty much useless. Digitally distribute it, and allow you to select an option to order an awesome DNF poster for the first 10k orders or something. "I waited 16 years for this"

At my work we now have those buttons with our company's jingle on them (Like the Staples "That was easy" button) .
They are the latest in custom imprinted products. The ones my company has can be bought by employees for about $5. Apparently sales people give them as promo items.


I'd love to have a button with a Nuke symbol that randomly says short Duke quotes like.

Let's Rock!
Groovy!
Ahhhh... much better!
Rest in pieces!
Shake it baby!
I think you need some down time...
What a mess!

I still like having tangible media. I have dozens of boxed games. I have a couple of dozen digitally distributed games too, but I like having a box and a disc. I also like to browse in game shops and that's just not the same on a website.

I actually just want a fully detailed instruction manual. Sorta like with DOOM three and RTCW. I like those booklets because it really puts me in the mood to play the game. gives you a good back story and character info while it shows you some of the enemies/weapons in the games.

Nothing dissapoints me more than getting a 3 page booklet or a crappy little card (Im looking at you Valve). Remember old nintendo game booklets? Very coloful, detailed and fun to read.

Re: Besides the game, what do you want in the Duke Nukem retail box?
How about a Duke Nukem action figure? I mean with correctly articulated joints at the neck, shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees.

Or maybe a capgun that takes standard caps, but is in the shape of one of Duke's sci-fi guns.

Or maybe a DVD with a 30minute Duke Nukem anime movie made by a well known Japanese animation studio, such as the one that made Gundam Wing, or the one that made Neon Genesis Evangelion, or the one that made Dragon Ball Z.

Or maybe an car antenna ball that is in the shape of Duke's head.

You know... if anyone with photoshop skills wants to try and make a mock up of what the special edition would like it would be much appreciated.

I loved when everybody made up versions of the box art. Pretty kick ass.

You know...in continuing the tradition of Duke ripping off hollywood, much in the same way that the box art of Duke 3D was blatantly inspired by the Army of Darkness cover, I think the cover of Duke Forever should be inspired by another famous movie cover/poster.

I'm thinking...

Terminator 1:


or Big Trouble in Little China (Replace the chinese dudes with Aliens, and maybe turn the smirk on his face into a snarl and replace the hand radio with a pipebomb)


or maybe Raw Deal (I think Duke would look Badass in this pose)

WarThrash,

While I still love the original Duke Nukem Forever cover art image, your idea kicks ass! The Big Trouble In Little China poster would work perfectly for DNF. I also have another suggestion. I think it would also be cool if the cover art was inspired by the Terminator 2 poster. Duke on his motorcycle holding a big f*ckin gun with explosions in the background would be amazing! Seeing Arnold sitting on the bike sort of reminds me of Duke.

Really? I always thought they were ripping off the Doom cover, since that's the game they were basically emulating.

I want a DVD with a feature length documentary about the development cycle of the game. The highs, the lows, the lawsuit, the lonely nights, the pizza, the John St. Jon voice recording out-takes...It could win a freaking oscar covering the kind of drama that has gone on making this game!

prophecy holder: I agree, there should definitely be a really nice full-size (thick) printed Duke Nukem Forever manual in the game box. With lots of Duke details and facts, cool quotes from Duke, etc. Something that's filled with Duke style and attitude, to really get you in the mood for some alien stomping.

Also, I think they should include a full soundtrack CD for the game, that would be great. If not in the regular box, then for sure in the Collector's Edition box set.

1. A 13 year warranty. (Or 14 year/15 year etc. Depending on release)
2. A fully functional time machine.
3. A pair of size 13 boots as a replica of Duke Nukem's.
4. A pair of Duke shades.
5. An eye from the stadium boss in a football shape.
6. A CD with 1000+ Duke Nukem one-liners/outtakes.
7. A Duke Nukem skin for console editions.
8. An Atari 2600.
9. A replica of the golden pistol.
10. An apology.

It would be awesome if some collector's edition came with a replica of one of Duke's guns. Like the shotgun, which can actually be pumped. That'd be awesome.

Angilion,

In the early days of baseball cards, they were frequently made by bubble-gum manufacturers. At least until the 1980's, you usually got a free stick of gum in each pack. Which may have been sitting in that package for months or years.

How about a model of Duke on his motorbike, or a gold statue of Duke?
Also a pair of Dukes Glasses in a glass case with a plaque saying Duke Nukem Forever.

---------- Post added at 08:49 AM ---------- Previous post was at 08:42 AM ----------

I have a better Special Edition:

An a ammo box, with DUKE NUKEM stamped on it. Inside contains some goodies:
A golden statue of Duke Nukem
A 1/4 scale model Ripper Chaingun
A bullet USB with 2GB storage, containing some wallpapers and screensavers.
The Soundtrack to the game.
Some Posters.
And the game itself.

Now that would be one awesome Special Edition.

(if it actually did happen) So I find the thread here that says a Christmas release this year for this game a possibility, but unlikely due to the ammount of time it could take to get familiar with the engine and how big the development team is. There is a lot of variables. So anywhere from 2010 - 2013 is possible, but that's if the game doesn't have to switch engines again and it actually isn't cancelled.

You may not have noticed, but $100 sunglasses aint gonna happen.

Collectors edition packaging has a cheap trinket, they label it "Limited Edition", make a quazillion of them, and they try to get nearly double for the game.

I do love the idea of a red tank top and some knockoff Wayfarers.

I seriously doubt that the old builds still exist. Im not trying to shoot down the idea and i personally would love to play nostaliga DNF but what is the use of holding on to an old unfinished build?
