Was just about to post this! Shock and awe!

It's gonna happen!

Hold me Crunchy! Jobi, I love ya man!

To George and Scott and the rest of 3drealms....thanks for getting this done and setting aside your differences. I'm sure both 3drealms and Take 2 will realize they'll have a huge hit on their hands once Duke Nukem Forever hits.

*IF* 3dr somehow found a way to get the game to an external developer shortly after they let their internal team go, it's possible the game is either completed or very near completed.

Remember, they were less than a year from finishing the game before the lawsuit.

It's been over a FULL year now. The timing of the settlement right before E3 is super exciting.

The game *HAS* to show up at E3 this year. A few jabs at Master Chief will be appropriate as well.

From Shacknews:
Quote:
"Dismissed with prejudice" means that neither can file another suit on the same claim. Details on the "Settlement Agreement" were not available, though the U.S. Trademark Office indicates that 3D Realms/Apogee Ltd. still owns the Duke Nukem property.
Cool.

Okay guys as a manly man I will soon post photo my forehead with note "I fail at life" in the bet on E3 thread and never write in this forum for one year as I promised. This is some major news - good one indeed but it still means nothing as game needs to be completed.

Great Freaking News. I haven't been one of the optimistic ones around here in the DNF forum so I can finally say with meaning:


Always bet on Duke!!!

this has nothing to do with E3 though, correct? I'd wait until then

KaiserSoze, even if Duke Nukem Forever should not be presented in some way at E3, another great thing with this is that George and everyone else at 3D Realms can speak freely about the title again without fearing to get themselves thrown in prison.

Don't worry man, even if it's true you haven't lost your bet yet.
Even in the case of a settlement, the game will not necesseraly be at E3.

Well they go by "When it's done" but in this case, I think George and Scott should probably come out and talk a bit about this unless *ahem* they let the game do the talking for themselves.

According to some LinkedIn profiles, at least some more than George and Bryan are still at the HQ. I don't know if it's true, but you can check my post here: http://forums.3drealms.com/vb/showpo...&postcount=212

You mean just like they told us that the lawsuite was over almost 2 weeks ago, instead of having to learn from another site?

It takes longer than a month to build a proper E3 demo. I remember id stating that building up E3 demos of Doom 3 would take anywhere for three to six months worth of time.

Who says they need a demo?

How about Duke walking on stage and saying "It's done" or "I'm back" and then a killer full blown trailer is shown?

You just don't stop, do you? Yeesh. Stop making up stuff, expecti it to happen, and then act like it's a "fact" merely because nobody denied it.

Yes Joe already stated in the E3 Bet thread that it's not happening so, settled case or not, there's gonna be nothing there. I am however thinking we get something DNF related by the end of the year, at least.....hopefully

I didn't say that. You need to re-read what I said. I said what I can vote for. I didn't say "what is happening" or "what is not happening".
