Default Re: DNF... Delayed again?

As far as I know DNF is using a brand new engine created by 3drealms. no UE anymore. I read somewhere that u only can see the game in its full glory with a DX9.0 graphics card. don't know where that was, but if I remember correctly it was on the official 3drealms homepage.

I can't wait for it to be released. Played EVERY duke nukem game so far, and I won't miss this one, regardless how long i have to wait for it

if its anything like the original trailer from 2001, then it should be a nice roller coaster ride. if it were to get canned, and i doubt it will, that would really suck, because it has to be one of the most notable 1st person shooters of all time, along side doom and half life (yea im sure theres room for argument on that one ) sadly for 3drealms its being put in the diakatana category, and im sure alot of people wont even give it a chance WHEN it hits the shelves. i have faith we'll be entertained. we're over due for a blow shat up, slapstick, duke/lo-wang style game.

They said they completely rewrote the renderer so it doesn't matter if it was ue2.0 or ue3.0 or ue1.0. If you look at tenebrae (google it) it has doom 3 quality graphics, on a modded Quake 1 engine.

I fail to see why the game engine used in the production of a particular game is of any consequence to gamers. The artwork and level design is what truly defines the look and feel of a game.

In anycase, I'm pretty confident that all the major subsystems have been rewritten or heavily modified, although with this development time, they could have written a brand new engine.

Oh, and I'd still like to see this game come out, but my hopes have dwindled to next to nothing on actually seeing this game.
