He meant it was to go 'gold', meaning delivered to T2 completed and ready for duplicating and delivery to stores. Not release date.


What's one more day, we have been waiting;

From and including: Monday, April 28, 1997
To and including: Thursday, April 1, 2010

It is 4722 days from the start date to the end date, end date included

Or 12 years, 11 months, 5 days including the end date
Alternative time units
4722 days can be converted to one of these units:
407,980,800 seconds
6,799,680 minutes
113,328 hours
674 weeks (rounded down)

Hay guys, I just thought of something!!!
Maybe the whole "lawsuit" thing was some kind of elaborate April Fools day joke, and DNF went gold today?! Eh? Eh?!?

DNF FTW!

What are you, five? The world isn't a happy place, and not everyone is a nice person. Deal with it. Also, above all things, why the HELL would they keep DNF going gold a secret?

Wait a moment...you're saying...you think it may have went gold behind our backs, and they didn't even say much until you spoke up? I'm sorry, but unless if comes from George's post itself, then it's not officially gold, that's how I see it.

That IS still a fantastic idea, after all, finaly gone gold behind the scenes but also right before our very eyes. And they could mention it freely on internet even with a not settled lawsuit. You think "ok, april 1st. It would gone gold if no circumstaces ..bla...."
You don't mind for weeks 'cause no substancial news on the net.

A month and serveral days later, you are at the shops, disbelief when you see the clerk building up a physically stock of copies. You are never going to buy "that crappy Fake-DVD" for full price! "Poor 'innocent' guy doing shit happends", you think.

Next morning returning to the forums - here IS no forum active... wondering..., try to get some information on the frontpage. The ONLY word that reach the eye on the page "DONE" hit your brain. PANIC arise, wasn't the batch at the stock read the words STRICTLY LIMITED? Run, Forrest run.... !

*DREAMING*

Lol just watch - like next week we'll just be browsing your local store's PC games aisle until suddenly a full stock of "Duke Nukem Forever" is dead-smack in the middle of all of them. You nonchalantly grab a copy and calmly walk up to clerk for checkout, containing all enthusiasm. You then walk out of the store, get in your car, and then wake up from the dream.

If only, if only. "Derp guis, it was coming out April 1st no jokez!" Words mean nothing when talking about 3DR, because they turn out to be empty lies. I'll believe it when I see it -in- stores. Until then, keep dreaming, gents.

Re: Duke nukem Forever was to be released today (april 1, 2010)
Going to be honest with you chief, i really doubt that is a real trailer due to the voice

It does not really sound like Duke that much, either he is getting old or that is not him

How can you saw that video is fake at all?

Are you saying somebody had enough time on their hands to make a small version of DNF and film their own homemade mini-game? Tell me how this is fake. It is clearly the 2007 version as well, as you can tell by the ripper (the machine gun... I think it's the ripper) model.

Actually its much farther along then that. The Ripper has been "polished" since the Jace Hall footage, as can be seen in the video. More detail, better angle.

Not that far fetch, people took the time and money to make fake Bigfoot prints and go out in the woods and make tracks. People also planned for several hours to make crop circle then travel out to a strangers corn field to make them.

In short, some people are just weird.

In this instance, no, there's actually a lot more work involved in faking this kind of thing.

Its REAL DNF material, and that is why George, and the mods keep having it removed.

The footage is real. Unfinished footage that was leaked out. A "fan" got a hold of the footage and added the grabbag theme. All the sound effects, gun noises and such... were also added by the fan and are not real.

And yes, the links will be removed when/if we spot them.

Is that because you are, in fact, "The Laauaw"?
