DNF in a outer space? Sounds like competition for Serious Sam: Third/Final Encounter.

Heh, a bit late on this thread, but, it's not as if we don't have the time to talk about this long awaited game, ey? :P I can't believe how god damn lazy 3D Realms has been with this title. No excuses, this game is WAY overdue.

This is what happens when developers take their sweet ass time with their product because they think it's going to be bigger and badder than anything else when it's released. Due to their laziness, new technology is released, in this case, the Unreal engine has become so much more than it used to be, and of course 3D Realms wants all the new features in the bestest game ever, Duke Nukem Forever.

I used to be quite a fan of the Duke Nukem series, and I have lost most of my respect for the franchise directly because of 3D Realms. Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project was an absolute joke and obviously a title designed to tie us over until 3D Realms got their asses into gear with Duke Nukem Forever.

Of course I will still buy the game, most likely grab a pirated copy now, but there's no way I will ever become interested in a 3D Realms product ever again, probably never a Duke Nukem product. It doesn't bother me anymore, the Unreal franchise is grander than anything right now, even Quake has lost it's fire. "Hail to Unreal, baby!" :P

Yes, Hail to Unreal. Doom died long ago, and has only just recently been resurrected. It will surely be an excellent game, although will probably be like every other id software game lately: Excellent technology, Poor game. Unreal has their universe down the right way, and it delivers on all accounts.

Heh, in a way, I kinda wish the game was dead :P Unfortunately, it's not. But, does anyone remember a game 3D Realms was developing in which your character among other alien beasts are abducted and taken to an arena type setting where you had to fight for your life. At least, this was the basic plot behind the game. It was supposed to have state of the art graphics, but I'll be damned if I can remember what the title was called. Maybe I'll think of it, but I just remember 3D Realms raving about it, and the next thing you know, it's cancelled. No bother..

Aha! Prey, that's what it was. I was thinking something along the lines of that; I kept thinking Predator, but knew that wasn't it, close enough though :P Anywho, enough said. 3D Realms could fall hard for all I care. Personally, the thought of Duke Nukem in Las Vegas seems rather a copout to me. What better place for Duke to pulvarize some aliens, as well as get some chicks while he's at it? It could even be real cheesey, one-liners taken far beyond the point ridiculousness..I need to stop now..

actually, stealth, I heard something like that.

but anyone remember crack.com, abuse, and Golgotha (the Uber-Space Game that never got released because the company disbanded)?

--edit--whoops, golgotha isn't a space game, it was a strategy game a la Battlezone... --/edit--
