Duke Nukem The Hero is back opening scene
Ok, i know, we have this discussed before. We have discussed everything before. BUT:
I think we've all seen Indy4. When i saw the opening scene with the nuclear bomb i thought that this is duke nukem forever the movie
i hope we've got something similar at the beginning of the the game.
I think after all this years we need a " THE HERO IS BACK " scene. what do you think?

and please don't let this be a indy4 thread - you can find a million places on the internet where you can talk about the movie..

Heck yes I am looking forward to seeing that movie and Duke's Return Scene in DNF. I bet it will be bad ass and really cool!! I am not sure how it will be but I'd rather not think about right now. Any one else wants to try and think of it go ahead we'd like to hear how you presume it will be as...

I would like to see it when I play it, so 3DR take your time but make this game rock and I know you willl afterall...

As a patriotic Duke-fan you should know that his first book is titled "Why I'm So Great".
After all these years he might have written a new book.

for the intro sequence I really wouldn't mind if it was just duke on a plane about to arrive in vegas, "Hmmm, don't remember how I got here", and one of two ways they could do it, the plane arrives duke gets off and hits the casino before the invasion, or the aliens begin the attack and the plane happens to get clipped and crashes in the process

For an opening scene I always have liked my idea that I think I posted long time ago about the camera following a nuke flying toward Las Vegas. Then we follow it smackin into the road and exploding while panning outward to finally reveal Duke watching it all and saying something. Then cue in theme song.

There's no way that could happen. The shockwave would hit him like a tonne of bricks.

And I don't think he'd fly into Las Vegas as he owns a casino there (what's it called again?).

I don't think there's a crucial need for an epic 'Duke is back' scene just because of development time but we'll see what 3DR comes up with.

I reckon a 3D re-enactment of the Duke Nukem 2 intro, just so we could have a variation of Duke saying "I'm BACK!" Hopefully not including a line referring to alien related constipation or something to that effect.

It's not meant to be realistic just explosive and awesome.

Something to get your attention like "OMG this game is going to KICK ASS"

No, please don't make it highly unrealistic even for Duke.

It was too unrealistic for Indiana Jones, even for an indiana jones movie.

How about something like Prey (except the interactivity doesn't end there)?
Duke is in a bar and after a time (or you push something) the whole place goes to ruins and you start kicking alien ass.
I am not sure the opening "scene" as it were has to be anything really. George has said in the past that cinematics are out. I just want to play the damn game.

Yeah but I had my idea long before Indy

The whole bar idea...I wasn't fond of it in Prey.

During the interview, several alien invaders storm the stage, a scout group that saw Duke Nukem and decided to come out of hiding to kill him. The first one drops from the false ceiling, right on to Duke.

Duke kills the first one with a glass of water and a microphone cable, because he can, then draws his guns and shoots the rest. Yes, he'd be armed on a talk show. He's Duke Nukem. He's still armed when he's in the shower.

With bits of corpses lying around and hysteria in the audience, Duke Nukem turns to Oprah, who has spoken to him. She's using her job as a means of keeping her head together, to avoid panicking, so she's continuing the discussion.

Duke replies "Sorry babe, the interview is over. I gotta go save the world. All by myself."

I kinda doubt they would reach back to the sidescrollers for plot bits. I mean, it would be a nice nod, but I don't really see Duke 1 and 2 as taking place in the same storyverse as Duke Nukem 3D. Proton was prevalent in the first Duke games and now he's on hiatus. Of course DNF may change that.

Also, I don't really see Oprah as a sort of person to remain calm enough to conduct an interview when the shit hits the fan. I'd think she would jump at even the sight of a lowly spider.

Lastly, I really really detest Oprah, so I hope there are no shenanigans with her involved. Although it ties into the originals. Maybe another popular celebrity could fill her shoes? (as a character) Or even a politician?

Maybe Duke on his own late night talk show promoting his new book and threatening audience members with weapons? Then the aliens bust in. Duke's pissed, not because they interrupted the show, but they interrupted the show before the all important dancing babes sequence. Unfortunately Duke hadn't got around to handing out the free gift baskets with small arms and ammunition packs (and a free signed copy of the book no less) so half the audience gets wiped out before Duke can retaliate. Then the scene really gets messy...

There shouldn't be an opening scene. Right when you click "New game" it instantly goes to Duke equipping a pistol and the HUD fades in.

Instant gameplay. Over 10 years of waiting, I don't have time to wait through an opening scene.

I'd say the same to you actually. For all we know there is no opening scene, as has been said by 3DR members,the game is entirely in Dukes perspective, and as such it is likely the game does just "fade in", though it is unlikely it starts up with the action right at this point... My guess is an Half-Life 2 style opening, where you have a brief "feel for" the game and allow "the sh*t" to hit the fan.

Re: The Hero is back opening scene
It's a scene that happens to be the opening of the game. I'm not parsing words. I know there won't be cinematics unfortunately and that it's probably going to be like HL2. But wheter it's cinematic or not, it's still a scene where you take part in and also is the first scene in the game.

Also, you called it an "opening" yourself, I dunno why we're arguing when we're talking about pretty much the same thing only naming it differently.

Guys, guys...your both right. It's anyones guess as to what we'll see. And my thoughts on how DNF will begin could be close to the teaser at the end with Duke finishing up his daily workout. Located in the back of his strip club is a private place Duke had built where he often sleeps. Through a secret panel in the wall is how he enters the 'gym' and also where he keeps his weapons, badly needing dusting! While he's putting the burn on his last few reps... ..Outside, thoes alien bastards that have waited 12 long years, in thinking Duke would have gotten rusty, fat, lazy and out of shape by now, have returned. But they are wrong, dead wrong! Duke hasn't forgotten, and has been prepairing for this day, knowing all the while it would come. Their next mistake is they think they know where Duke is. They see an image of Duke on their instuments. They plan to bust in, taking Duke off guard. But what they don't know what they really see is a Holoduke that Duke displays for laughs...in the mens room, right next to Dukes gym! And theres nothing that can detect Duke behind his specially built walls!
Duke drops his barbells when he faintly hears a comotion and familiar sounding, un-earthly growls coming from the mens room. In seconds, Duke is up and blasts through the wall...The exploding DNF logo appears and then Duke's first one liner..."I'm lookin for some alien toilet to park my bricks, who's first!"
or, "Someone's gonna freakin pay for ruining my retirement!"
Sorry folks, I got carried away!

c'mon it's duke. the whole world savior thing is unrealistic - and don't say that jumping out of a plane with a life raft (indy2) is realistic.. and for duke: like it has been said before: lot's of stuff should blow up, massive music in the background, duke in the foreground. hero is back. ready, set, go!

Duke sitting on a plane, with a wrapped box in his hands. Aliens suddenly attack, and the plane starts to go down. Duke makes a quip about shooting up rides. The pilot asks him to kindly help them out, he opens the box to reveal a pistol, and manages to crash land the plane in the desert near Area 51. General Graves takes him on a secret underground train from Area 51 to The Ladykiller and tells him a little bit of backstory. The trainline's hidden exit leads to the bar of the casino, and the aliens start attacking the city. There. Full of action and a few nods to other FPS.

Arcadey doesn't = more fun. I actually enjoyed Counter-Strike. I also enjoy a lot of the more realistic games like Ghost Recon, (before GRAW) Rainbow Six, (before Vegas) etc. etc. I don't enjoy games like Serious Sam.
