I love the tag line on the box art...

"Always bet on Duke" .... to be delayed over and over again.

I remember reading about this game 'coming soon' back in 1997 or something HAHA.

WTF. Please tell me this is a new updated Duke Nukem coming out??? Xbox???

Yeah yeah, pull the other one.

Do you know how you can tell that a game is going to be something special? When it starts with a tutorial telling you how to pi$$ into a urinal.

Lol

Actually gearbox has finished development now... The entire reaosn it wasnt made before was because of legal reasons preventing further development. The game is able to be played at PAX and so will have no problems being shipped.... Preorder it! Worst that can happen is that you get your money back if something regarding the games release does happen.

yup, really feels like its gonna happen this time - lets hope it really is a daikatana beater.

It's gonna be on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3

Prepare for the biggest disappointment in the last 15 years.

finally

This game started development in 1997.. I think i'll wait re: the pre-order although it looks guaranteed now!!

at least with gearbox finishing it off now we can be assured it'll be a decent shooter at least.

it'll still never live up to the anticipation though, the development saga has been epic lol

can we get someone to do shenmue 3 now too?

I don't think it can ever live up to expectation. I still remember playing the original on my P120 ^^

wow chump i was on wiki already

Oh you like fish?

Duke Nukem is definatly coming...but your going to have to wait till late next year...



eh. don't mean to rain on the parade, but that site also has Diablo 3 listed as available for pre-order with a release date of October 2010. That game isn't even close to being released. These sites often just put these dates up in hopes of getting you to pre-order with them.

Further to the wikipedia comment above, it appears this is the case with Duke as well: "On 3 September 2010, after 13 years, Duke Nukem Forever was officially reported by 2K Games to be in development at Gearbox Software,[7] with an expected release date of 2011.[8]"

Buyer beware here, I think.

I would prefer Shenmue 3. that game is gonna take ages in coming out.

It wont come out. The first two cost bajillions to make and they both tanked big time. Besides sega aint as hot as they used to be...

I've love to see Shenmue 3 come out, but there's little hope. At least Duke was in development all this time. The closest to Shenmue 3 we have was someone from Sega stating that they'd like to make it if they had the financial backing, but considering how much the first 2 cost Sega, it's unlikely any publisher would take the risk. However if/when Shenmue 1 & 2 come to PSN/XBL, I'm hoping the demand is great enough to make it feasible for a publisher to say they'll help out to make the third one.

This has been cooking for so long it'll probably be in black & white.

At least shopto.net will give out £3 as well, as it may not meet that release date.

If you pre-order Duke Nukem Forever before 12pm on Wednesday 17th of … If you pre-order Duke Nukem Forever before 12pm on Wednesday 17th of November 2010 we will guarantee that you will receive it by the release date of Friday 19th of November 2010, if you do not receive it we will compensate you with £3.00 on your shopto account.

I think everyone knows about it now :P Not sure what platform to get it for though. I'd assume the PC version would be the best, as all the originals were on PC before being ported (which is a rare occurance these days!).

Good to see the development is finally finished though, looking forward to its release in a few months time

This is the biggest load of rubbish... legal reasons... HA! Its because 3D Realms scrapped and restarted development on the game so many times, wanted absolute perfection Also, just because is was shown at PAX doesn't mean the game is finished. Are you sure all FMVs were present? All levels present? And No bugs? I dont think so.

That's a joke yeh?
Shopto won't credit anyone for this ofcourse. Pre order date will change just before it hits the due date.

I won't be buying this. I'm going to wait for the follow up.

Gearbox themselves have confirmed that the game development is finished. They're taking a few months extra time to get things polished.

They would say that striker I work in QA myself, and I know that the polishing stage is FAR from a finished game.

I was just wondering about this; you wouldn't expect to get credited with £3 if the release date itself changes, but I can't see any small print about it. Maybe it is in shopto's Ts & Cs when you sign up?

Shopto's description: Technically, developer 3D Realms has always promised the release of Duke Nukem Forever, "When it's done." As of this writing, the game is not yet done, but it is still in the works, and the promise is that, one of these days, you or your offspring will enjoy the fruits of almost a decade of hard labor for 3D Realms.

Lol

Hail to the king baby!!!!!

Hot.

"Hell, I'd still hit it."

this is the ultimate piece of vapourware

Agreed. I'm not touching this thing with a barge pole, despite the original Duke Nukem games being the first FPS I ever played. At the very least, I'll wait for reviews and footage to come out, if it ever does.

Re. Shenmue, I understand that Dreamcast games are coming to Xbox Live/PSN, and I guess if the first two sell well and are ranked highly then who knows? You might get your wish!

Why did you ask then? If you knew how to use wiki or google (and obviously you do which makes you lazy) then you'd find out the answer yourself instead of needing to be spoonfed. As for calling me a **** that shows the level of intelligence you have where by you needed to resort to vulgarities when I never.

Back on topic, I'll believe this when I see it.



By the way, did anyone play that Duke Nukem platformer on Xbox Live? Bit of a let down.
