    Duke Nukem Forever 2013

    So as well all know DNF is not a great game.

    It could have been, the 2001 trailer looked promising, but of coursed it was delayed. Thankfully some great modders have reconstructed the game based on the 2001 trailer, using the engine for Duke 3D. Here's the trailer:



    Looks good, right?

    Original trailer for comparison


    Mod is out now, should be able to grab it here.

    Clever, love it when people take these old sector engines and stretch the limits without introducing too much new tech.

    Still the 2001 trailer is more or less what the game ended up as, with some of the pointless elements locked out... so...

    Now what we need is Prey done on a modified id tech 2 engine that can run on year 2000 hardware.

    It's not really though. And it's how the game plays too, which didn't feel very Duke in DNF.

    Gameplay is different but a lot of the core stuff isn't that different - hero worship, misogyny, strippers, immature humour, etc. A lot of the elements from the trailer did make it into DNF though in altered forms.

    There's not really a whole lot in DNF that comes from that trailer really. A few sections in LA and presumably the Dam. Other than the game looks a lot different, and it's not just the immature humour/hero worship stuff that made DNF bad. Duke 3D had that and it wasn't bad.

    Duke Nukem in the 90s was great. Duke Nukem in 2013, that's like you being a teenager and your father comes into your room and tries to impress your friends.

    Maybe next time they can outsource the development of the sequel (if they still plan to) to the Koreans to add some H elements into it?

    The game itself is good, it's just that it's a too damn old school shooter we all are tired of. Time is always against those who don't innovate.
