this thread is so funny, much needed comic relief in here mostly due to my posts lol, btw I dont give a hoot about dnf anymore, it feels good to just be an asshat though but i hope nobody take this shit for real. 3dr was the best in the game many moons ago and i still love the heck out of the content they did create. thats all i felt like clearing that up.

What left of 3DR crew is now hiding in 300 feet deep underground bunker from the wrath of pissed off guys who after 12 years of development cycle and major development in the industry on almost every level still cared about DNF .

Not dumb enough, ok I got it:

We catapault Buzz lightyear toys into the building. One is bound to be sentient and proceed to go through the building looking for George's computer. Once in he will download and release the current version of DNF.

While Buzz is doing that, we (the fans) proceed to taunt George and co like they did in Braveheart for distraction. If that doesn't work get go to plan B.

Plan B:

We higher the F.A.R.T.

Flatulent
Airborne
Reaction
Team

They'll smoke out 3DR headquarters with deadly horendous farts. The kind of fart that can kill cancer, the kind of fart that can eat the stitching out of Levi. Once that's done we enter the fabled headquarters and finish DNF ourself. For the fans, by the fans.

Out of curiosity I visited Google Maps to see if any street views had been updated. Unfortunately was that not the case, but I spotted something else. The map system had "Apogee Software" added. This was absent from the map when I checked it in mid-2009. Considering the address is available on Google, I assume I could post it here as well, but decide not to.

Instead I post the most recent image of 3D Realms HQ I could find (from Google Maps):



That is a Lamborghini.

Yeah, it's old. If we could get a brand new image, that would be great. But I don't know of any other service than Google Maps that offers such imagery. And I don't know anyone on the forums that lives in Garland/Texas.

EDIT: I looked at an image from same location via Google Earth (2009/12/05) and there are no cars there whatsoever.

Re: Camping/rallying outside 3DR HQ?
I've lived in the D/FW metroplex for 12 years. Probably about 45 mins from the 3DR HQ. Always wanted to go by, but never did.

That said, this is the dumbest idea I've ever heard. I don't think picketing the HQ (if anybody is even there, anymore) will do a damn thing. This is up to 3DR and Take2 now, and no damn fans picketing is going to make them move along.

My gut says 3DR is doing what it can to keep/preserve the Duke Nukem IP. I'd say that's more important.

Look, I live in Garland. The building is on a major road that leads to the highway, so I pass by regularly. Nobody has been there in months. There are sometimes a total of two vehicles, but they may well have been part of the construction crew building a grocery store next to 3DR.

Don't ask for pictures or anything else. When the shit hit the fan last year, I offered some updates about how there were plenty of cars after the layoffs (turned out they were having some kind of job fair) and took hell from people who thought it was stalkerish to drive down a street I always drive down and say, "Hey, there were some cars."

I don't understand all the wooses scared of doing this - haven't you ever heard of fun! Life is seriously too short. If you really belive in Duke being special then you should let it be known!! I'm from the UK and not a massive gammer at all but Duke was my first love and if I was anywhere near close I'd be there - not really to have a go at 3D Realms but to show how much I love Duke and want more.

Re: Camping/rallying outside 3DR HQ?
Any release date is dependent on getting a 'gold' copy of the game to the publisher for distribution. Since they do not have all the content wrapped together in a complete unit, they are nowhere near a 'gold' disk. Backtracking design, level mechanics, graphics, etc.. takes time for the coders to implement and refine the elements together, then get it tested by gamers who will stfu and not leak any info while they test the game for any issues.
-
The only way anything is coming out is, whatever content they already have 'in-game' and complete, meaning levels that are 100% done and working would need to be packaged and sent to Take2. That's not gonna happen, why??? because they only have less than 10 levels (probably less than 5) done 100%. The rest of the levels are missing a lot of elements and are not ready to be integrated into the working game (even if the textures don't look quite right). Take2 and the gaming community would freak over a FPS with 10 or less levels. 3DR would become a worse laughing stock than they already are.
-
Alternatively if the game really is 'nearly finished' then that means that, 3DR is in no financial/production position to release the code to Take2 for retail sales, they need a ton of content/levels and 'never done before' game mechanics to have DNF outsell anything else out there. With the trend over the past few years of video game sales/profits declining 3DR will be hard pressed to turn a profit from royalties from Take2. Unless 3DR can be convinced that DNF will 'shatter' sales records and become the 'biggest selling video game of all time' they are better off keeping the game unfinished and waiting for the video game market to pick back up.
-
Want to get it released? We need to get off these dedicated forums, get on something much more public (facebook, twitter, etc) and start a group of "I fully intend to purchase DNF even if it costs $xx.xx" if such a list breaks 1 million, ooo baby watch George pull a 'gold' dvd out of his ass for Take2 to start shipping. Want a solid ship date? We need to convince 3DR if it's released before x date we will buy it, if not we won't buy it ever. Take2 is not giving anymore $ to 3DR, only game sales $$$ matter now.
-
But what to I know, I have only been in the gaming industry for 20 years, started with burning eprom chips for atari games and the ever brutal C64 programming.

3DR have long since proven that the will of the people to care or not care about DNF has virtually no impact on their time line for actually finishing the game. Get a bazillion gamers to line up & say "we will" or "we won't" do this or that, and 3DR will still (smugly) say "great, but it's still WID"

They can still work on the game. The question is... are they?

If they are we won't know until they want us to know... or there is a leak.

But only a select few will really believe that.

facepalm.
I don't have the energy to explain all the 3DR-T2 issues and why there is a media blackout.
Suffice to say all the issues can be resolved by only one party 3DR.
Finish the game and deliver the 'gold disk' to T2 by the date listed in the contract all issue disappear, but what incentive is there for 3DR to do that?
only $$$, nothing else matters. So if we (the people who spend the $$$) make it clear deliver on-time or we won't buy it ever, suddenly there is a big reason for 3DR to deliver.
-
I am not taking about 10k x$100 - we need to get 100k+ x$100 - because anyone in marketing knows that translates into close to 1,000k purchasers. - That's the size of voice we need.

3DR is not going to look at "your" non-existent page and go "OMG IF WE DON'T FINISH DNF NOW, NO ONE WILL EVER BUY THE GAME!!!! ".

Because they know that's not true.

Anybody who knows anything about Marketing/Sales, is well aware of the effect of Consumer Interest Groups - facebook or whatever. Any company that ignores a sizable section of their consumers are doomed. Even if the threat is an empty one, the collective voice has a lot more power that you give it credit for.

In reality they have not been actually 'working' on a game for 13 years.
They have had a game concept for 13 years. How much 'actual work'?? That's the question that none of us really want an answer to because then we would find out that 3DR did not have anywhere near the same commitment to the game that we the fans do.
