Duke Nukem Forever is an upcoming first-person shooter video game for the Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 systems, currently in development by Gearbox Software, and a sequel to the 1996 game Duke Nukem 3D, as part of the long-running Duke Nukem video game series. Intended to be groundbreaking, it has become infamous in the video games industry and was considered vaporware due to its severely-protracted development schedule; the game has been in development since 1997. Originally in development under 3D Realms, director George Broussard, one of the creators of the original Duke Nukem game, first announced the title's development in April 1997, and promotional information for the game was released in one form or another from 1997 to 2008.

Member Review: Duke Nukem Forever

By: grey walrus Jun 22, 2011 | 6 Comments

Sorry I haven't been very active lately guys. Been busy with my birthday and some other stuff, but to make it up to you I've got a review of Duke Nukem Forever.

Duke Nukem Forever. The game that most of us never thought would see the light of day, has finally been realeased. Was it worth the wait? 

Graphics: Let's start here. Duke Nukem Forever has been in development for about 12 years now, and it definitely shows. The graphics in this game are very sub-par compared to the games were used to seeing released nowadays, but I wouldn't say they're terrible. They look like a very early 360 game, or maybe even a late xbox game. They get the job done, but don't be expected to be blown out of the water by any means. There are posters on the wall that are so blurry you can't read them, and Duke's jumping animation when looking in a mirror is laugable. Literally I laugh everytime I see it. 

Story: I'm going to tell you right now that if you waited for Duke all these years hoping for an epic story you're going to be very VERY disappointed. Pretty much Aliens came to earth, and duke needs to stop them....again. But this time they've taken all the women, and Duke won't stand for that. And that's the entire story. No plot twists no nothing, that's pretty much about it. 

Gameplay: The gameplay to DNF is solid. It's not the best shooter out there, but it's not the worst either. It's your basic run and gun FPS with a regenerative health bar, and big guns. There's even a couple of puzzles thrown in too keep it fresh, but usually just wind up frustrating you, and taking up uneeded time. Having said that though, the gameplay is solid, and it's actually fun. The driving is fun, but only when driving the monster truck. Driving the rc car seems like a chore, and get's old quick mainly because you're confined in doors.  

Humor: Everybody loves the duke, and there's a reason for that. The Duke's sense of humor hasn't gone away. I found myself laughing at quite a few of the jokes, and they poke fun at a few MS titles throughout the campaign. Mostly Halo, and GOW. Dukes over the top sense of self-confidence and all of the little things you can interact with in the environment will keep you entertained.

Music: The music in Duke Nukem Forever is good, but it's not winning any awards. The sound effects are all there too, but some of them get repetitive and annoying like dukes jumping grunt, and things like that.

My first take on the Duke Nukem Forever Demo

By: DragonKiss83 Jun 3, 2011 | 5 Comments

I got the code to download the demo this morning and thought I'ld make a video for those of you who missed out.

The game that took 12 years is about to be here, but if you were a First Access member you should get a code for the demo today.  So check your email.  If you didn't get the demo don't worry I have some low quality video of it.

The first video covers the intro and a fight with a big fucking alien.  It goes up to the start of the second part of the demo so you'll see some driving also.

 

The second video picks up just after you jump the canyon with your monster truck and get put back on foot.  This will lead up to a fight where you have to throw explosives at a spaceship until it explodes.  So far I just keep dying.

 

If I get past that I'll add a part 3 later.  Until then here are my thoughts on the demo.

First off the game is made be Gearbox (the people who made Borderlands) so they know how to make a fun FPS.  And I have the demo on PS3, but it should be about the same on the 360.  Once the game starts you get a couple laughs and a fight.  The controls here are pretty typical for any FPS.  After you take down that first big alien you find out that Duke was playing a game.  And he is using a Xbox 360 control.  So that was funny to me, and made me wonder if he'll be playing on the PS3 control for the Xbox version.  After the cut scene you get to drive Duke's monster truck.  It handles like crap, but you get to run over some aliens and jump a canyon.  Then you are back on foot.  The pig face aliens seem to be rendered pretty nicely here.  The graphics might not be cutting edge, but they aren't to bad.  I was surprised not to here to much talk from Duke, but what he says does change as you play.  And some if it is funny, but just some of it.  Overall it is pretty much what you would expect from Duke Nukem had it not taken 12 years to make.

So now to pass judgment on the game.  If you are new to the series or looking for a great FPS I'm going to say rent it first.  But if you have been waiting for this game go right ahead and buy it, you'll get the game you have been waiting for.

Well thanks to it taking forever to upload to YouTube I was able to finish the demo.  There was a RPG hidden in the little shack next to the mini gun, and that got me through the fight.  You head down into the mine and get to fight a little  more and ride in the rail cars Indian Jones style.  After some more shooting you find some gas and make your way back to the monster truck and after you gas it up the demo ends.  So you get to try out the handgun, shotgun, devastator, shrink ray, rpg, ripper, rail gun, pipe bombs, and some explosives.  Not a bad selection for a demo.

And here are the last two videos.  #3 is going through the mines and #4 is getting out then getting to see a censored version of the trailer they already released.  It might have all fit in one video had a not got lost a couple times and realized that there was a little plat forming to be done.  

 

So that is the entire demo.  What did you think? Besides that I need to practice before making a video and that I need to download some video editing software.
