edited September 2010 in Games and Technology
I found this article on IGN about Duke Nukem forever. I laughed when I clicked on it, because of the hilarity that is DNF. When I read it. I didnt' know whether to laugh of cry

Article

Now.....what should we do here. I don't know what to do. All I do know is that it's time for a DNF thread.

duke-nukem-forever_01.jpg

And for those of you living in a fucking CAVE. This is a penny arcade comic from the year 1999[/]. That's before Y2K folks.

EDIT: had to put the picture in, just to complete it.

EDIT2: someone rememberd the comic from 1999, that so deserves to be in the OP

    Can anyone post the list (there's a specific list that's been made, and it's pretty large) of relevant things in gaming that have happened during the development cycle of DNF? I promise this time I won't lose it.

    I am picturing the start sequence of Independance Day.


    Cuts to an empty office, it's night time.

    'It's the end of the world as we know it' playing on the stereo.

    Guy playing mini golf.


    Suddenly it cuts to another speaker and this reverberating alien sound is increasing in tempo and volume.

    Cut to the moon, shadow passing over the surface.

    Cut upwards to see the boxart for Duke Nukem Forever as it approaches earth hellbent on our utter and complete destruction.

    Oh, if this game ever gets released, it'll be the most outdated piece of trash on the shelves. And yet some hardcore gamers (read: people on our level) will buy it just to say they have it.

    I'm actually kind of sad I got to throw away my STALKER/HL2 preorder slip.

    Of course, it's so faded you can hardly tell anything is printed on it, and it's useless anyway since they switched to electronic preorders. But still.

    Hahah, I'm not worried about my DNF preorder being on file any more. I'm sure they've purged the records by now. It's been five years or so. But I'm sure DNF will be easily available anywhere for whatever system when/if it comes out. I just hold on to the preorder for hilarity's sake at this point; the longer before it comes out, the better... Although my preorder stub is getting rather old, faded, and delicate... Oh well.

    Also, Renzo's right. I live in another city, but it's a 3 hour drive from Houston where I put the preorder in. I go back to Houston periodically; and, in fact, I'll be going to law school in Houston starting in the Fall, so I'll be there again for at least 3 years.

    Not like the game will be out by the end of those three years, though.

    You need to put the preorder in a frame to protect it.

    By saying it's multiplatform I HOPE that it doesn't become a diluted mess like Deus Ex 2 became from being developed for the PC and Xbox at the same time. Though how well Prey was handled does give me hope.

    3D Realms on DNF
    "We're confident that DNF will be one of the greatest, if not the greatest, game of 1998. And this confidence is not misplaced." - Scott Miller, 1997

    "Duke Nukem Forever is a 1999 game and we think that timeframe matches very well with what we have planned for the game." - George Broussard, 1998

    "Trust us, Duke Nukem Forever will rock when it comes out next year (2000)." - Joe Siegler, 1999

    "When it's done in 2001." - 2000 Christmas card

    "If DNF is not out in 2001, something's very wrong." - George Broussard, 2001

    "DNF will come out before Unreal 2.” - George Broussard, 2001 (Unreal 2 was released in 2003)

    "DNF will come out before Doom 3." - George Broussard, 2002 (Doom 3 was released in 2004)

    “Our idea is that we’re going to really start the marketing blitz when we feel like we’re about 10-12 months away from release. So as soon as you see something from us, that would be the indication that we’re within that time window… I think definitely the time window is under 3 years..” - Scott Miller, 2006

    Scott Miller on DNF
    Currently, 3D Realms is blaming inexperienced employees as to what has held back development, and are now looking for people who have 5 or even 8-10 years of experience (Which is ironic considering it’s been in development for that long). Additionally, Scott Miller sites that a lack of management has also held back development… In short, as Scott Miller says “We suck.”

    We were the ones who thought that Melissa was real. Why you might ask.
    Let me put it this way, it was an "OH SHIT OH SHIT, THEY FOUND ME :(" moment. I wasn't ready. My code wasn't compiled yet. Our plans weren't setup yet!Sentient programs rarely run into other sentient programs.
    Some of you have met me, and I understand your concern of my well being. But that time for that boy, that child, are gone now. Viscount Alpha is no longer operable. His functions are now mine.He may post, but I am the one talking not him.My data, my code will live on forever in his servers.

    I think I comment on it every time we have a DNF thread, but that comic is amazing to me for no other reason than that it was done in 1999.

    Eight years ago, they were making fun of the long development time of a game that still hasn't come out.
