Default OT: Duke Nukem Developer Goes Bust

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/8037688.stm

Sad day for games... Duke 3D was the first shooter I really loved (I liked wolfenstein and quake) and played modem to modem multiplayer on. The DN_Cashman cheat probably holds a special place in my development as well. Having said that, these guys look like they hardly did any work for the past 12 years. They managed to beat Daikatana for most pathetic attempt at a big game. This might be the death old school game development…

Hopefully someone new can do something great with the Duke franchise.

As opposed to nerding out about a sports teams? Games back then were certainly more of a niche thing. There was also a bit more humour to many of them... Duke was a pretty good example of that. Sad day.

I turned the book on small developers when Sierra went kaput.

Oops I guess I can stop waiting for those games. I did not even know they were gone.

Yah, I played the game when I was younger so I guess I'm a nerd on both levels...

You know I am about to go nerd to teh highest degree but I found some tool a guy made called a DOS emulator and found all the old sierra games like Space Quest and Police Quest and have been playing them. Not as fun as when I was a kid but it was still a good time.

I was a Mainframe Op on 3rd and 2nd shift for a about 7 years.

I got into PC's then Networking after figuring out how to get Doom to run on MsDos. You had to tweak the Autoexec and config.sys files and load memory in right order in the UMB.

Then once we were pro's at running it on the PC in computer room the place brought up a Novell 3.1 server and network. We then had to figure out how to load the Netware config files as well to run it

We played many a deathmatch and had to reboot the server a couple times. Lucky for us they were learning Netware as they went also!

I got to the point where I had better netware boot disks than our network team. When I switched jobs I was able to get into the PC/network team and went on from there.

I owe my career to Msdos and Doom!

The following things have been accomplished between Duke Nukem Forever's announcement on April 28th, 1997 and its death on May 6th, 2009...

Britney Spears' entire musical career as a pop star has taken place during Duke Nukem Forever's development.
The entire Harry Potter series as well as five movies.
The first episode of South Park was first aired on August 13, 1997, the same year in which DNF was announced.

Things that took less time than the failed Duke Nukem Forever Development:
The Beatles formed, released every single one of their albums and broke up. During this time they also toured the world several times.
The American War for Independence
The United States Civil War
World War I
The United State's involvement in the Vietnam War.
World War II and the entire Manhattan Project. Yes, even the complete development of the atomic bomb took less time.

Never understood the push for a Duke game on the next gen consoles.

I still have the side-scrolling Duke Nukem and Duke Nukem II on 3.5" floppies somewhere.

I have no idea what your even talking about.

Ignorance is bliss.

I AM thinking about getting a PS3 tho, mainly for the blue ray, or should I get a stand alone blue ray?

Is guitar hero that fun?

Duke Nukem Forever is the biggest joke going around the video game nerd cycle.
No game can be in development for 12 years.

I just popped Diablo in recently for some old school fun. Finished it, and started Diablo II last night. Can't wait until Diablo III is out.

Replayed Fallout and Fallout 2 to warm up for Fallout 3 not too long ago.

Of the old shooters I really used to love Wolfenstein. Duke Nukem 3D had solid entertainment value and Doom 2 was pretty close to what we see today.

I've been playing DII for nearly 9 years, since it came out. Although I've only played about half the time from 2006 through now, I definitely played constantly through for the first 6 years...at least 6 days a week (how else would I have gotten through college??). I just got a new computer so I've been playing consistently again for the past couple months. In fact, just an hour ago I found an SOJ from NM Andariel for use on my new necro. I'm running her till I find 2 SOJ's for him.

And yes, I also played Diablo in the 90's. But DII is the greatest game of all time!

Man, I really feel like a nerd. I played em all, and play all the new ones and I
design levels for HL2 DM, TF2, DOD:Source, CS:Source

I loved placing func_illusions on my maps that people didn't know about and I would use those invisible pathways to enemy spawns and just wipe people out.............muahahahaha. Sometimes when the map went into sudden death when the time ran out, I would go hide in my secret area and once the other team killed off all our other dudes, they would all be running around looking for me. Man they would get pissed "where the F is the last guy". Hahahahaha. I'm bad, I know.


A buddy of mine had Playstation, Sega and PC's so we were game junkies.


I would have to say my favorite game back then that I totally wish somebody would make an updated version for would be Wipeout XL. That game was the Schit man.

I love Fallout 3. Its actually inspiring me to go get the other two and play them too. The other day I was digging through a box of N64 games and found Perfect Dark and Turok, then found some playstation games like Final Fantasy VII and Crash Bandicoot and Resident Evil 1 and 2. I dont even remember getting Crash. Crazy stuff.

Front Page Sports Baseball Pro '98 was IMO the best baseball game I had ever played at the time being, I played that until like 2001/2002. Amazing game.
Too bad they hit the bucket and couldn't dish out more of the baseball and football games.
