Exactly. I'm disappointed that DNF didn't come out 8 or 9 years ago, but it didn't stop me from living my life. I have a lot more people and things to blame for my life being shitty than DNF.

Ya, but kudos for giving it some thought - several of the items would be doable and very cool. Like imagine if they gave the sunglasses and tank top - that would be funny as hell.

Indeed. These people that say, "I want the last 13 years of my life back" are either drama queens, or really had no life.

Something I want in the game, however, is that the first, fifth, tenth, fifteenth, and etc. achievement gives my 360 avatar Duke's sunglasses, shirt, pant, boots, etc.
That would be fun.
It'd match my jetpack.

how do you figure? go ahead and quote one of these dreadfully abused employees of his if you want to make accusations like that.

You might get a "Thank you for your support" some time after you give them your $50.

I'm sorry being a retard is what I do best, being a 14 year old gives me that advantage. But yeah, that was kind of stupid to post let alone twice. But with doing all the math if the game comes out, it probably won't be until late 2011 to early 2013 based on the ammount of programming that was left when the development team was scrapped and the time delay between the switch in developers. (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.

I was unaware that they had employee(s) at this point. By which I mean they do not. I know you know this too because you just said former. So... what was your point? That the former employees couldn't talk. That's obvious. They're contract-bound.

I heard there's 3 guys at 3DR now, Scott, George and I think a Brian who I'm not familiar with... but yeah I should have quoted him so it didn't seem like i was commenting out of the blue. I assumed people would think I was referring to the post immediately before mine.

Re: Besides the game, what do you want in the Duke Nukem retail box?
Also, in my DNF box I'd like a Duke poker chip keychain, nuke symbol one side, Duke grinning a stupid smile the other. I'd also like a really detailed book on the 14 or so years that DNF's been in development. Detailing reasoning behind old engine changes, tech created and how it differed/differs to Unreal, all the way up to the lawsuit. I'd most likely read something like that a few times.

I also like the crate idea above with red tank top, glasses, steel cap boots etc, that'd be sweet

I'd love to see any portfolios they showed off with their DNF work.

I've only seen maybe 18 months worth of the frequently repeated "make up some cover art" threads, so I won't have seen most of the suggestions over the last 14 years. Having said that, my favourite was the one with a huge explosion in the background in the shape of the famous one fingered salute. I had a link to it somewhere, but lost it a year or more ago.

EDIT:

I found it again: http://forums.3drealms.com/vb/showpo...&postcount=309

I also found one of my suggestions from a couple of years back, made for laughs: http://forums.3drealms.com/vb/showpo...&postcount=412

---------- Post added at 06:54 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:48 PM ----------

An empty packet of chewing gum with "It's time" printed on one side.

Did I knock up a picture of it the last time I mentioned the idea, or just describe it? It was so long ago. It had probably been suggested a hundred times before me, anyway.

But then we can't play DNF until we finish chewing the gum! Otherwise, it would be "It's time to... chew bubba-gurm fur a bit.... mmmm... bubba-gurm..." *intermission* "And I'm all out of gum!"
