back to article Duke Nukem Forever release date revealed

The forthcoming Duke Nukem first-person shoot-'em-up may have been taking Forever to arrive - such is the irony of its title - but at long last, the game's publisher, 2k, has confirmed the release date. According to a report on Game Informer, the long-awaited title will be released in the US on 3 May. The rest of us will get it …

Seriously?

Two animated birds, one wearing a school uniform and a second (probably) topless one with her back to you is NSFW? Admittedly, in my work place nothing, absolutely nothing is NSFW, so I may be desensitised, but you see more in adds on daytime television.

NSFW picture

Yes, that's the "misogyny" mentioned in the article. Apparently appreciation of women in skimpy clothing equates to hating women. According to the feminists that is.

Endtimes

Surely a sign of the endtimes? DNF, the most infamous piece of vapourware, getting a release date?

Roll on 2012.

(Oh and the screenshot may be NSFW for some...)

Conditioned Response

My tired brain mashed the last 2 words together and processed the headline as "Duke Nukem Forever release delayed" resulting in a state of mild (though unsurprised) amusement.

DNF was on my Christmas list from 1999 to 2004 when I gave up. I won't believe that the game has been released until I've installed it on my system, and possibly not even then.

Is it really April 1st already?

Sorry El Reg, but you have to wait until April to start with the April Fool jokes.

Re: Duke who?

My 14 year old stepson showed me the DNF thingy as "look, this game looks cool, it comes out next year!" and then wondered why I was laughing my ass off. Then I explained that the previous game came out before he was even born!

He later read the entire story in one of those "Worst Video Game Failures Ever" articles, chronicling the worst FAILs in the industry, including the infamous E.T. game.

Christopher Brookmyer might be disapointed

The one impossible thing in The Attack of the Unsinkable Rubber Ducks by Christopher Brookmyre was the theft of someone's Duke Nukem Forever disk, so this will ruin a small part of that.

Shame really.

Then again I did just buy Duke Nukem 3D from GOG as I couldn't find my original copy.

I still have my original Duke Nukem 3D disc. In fact, we found it last weekend, and I'm planning on installing it on my stepson's PC so he can learn what the hell everyone's talking about.

Huh...?

"2011" is not a release date, it is a release YEAR. Oh and by the way, they have been naming "release dates" for over twelve years now with nothing to show for it.

Believe it when you see it on the shelves. I am suspecting a HUGE disappointment in the works here.

The only upside of DNF actually being released is HL2:EP3 will then become the leading vapourware title.

Read article first, then post

If you did, perhaps you would have seen the "May 3" release date.

Is it Duke or Ouroboros...

Endless release date cycle must rival Corrie for the longest running soap opera.

I wonder if there are characters called Rob or Ross in the game...?

Oh it is 2011 alright...

It is 2011 years FROM NOW when it will be released.

It is the same way Guns'n Roses album was named: they thought it would take them so long to release it, that China would have turned into a democracy before that happened.

I might believe in DNF being released. Then again, maybe not.

DNF then HL2:EP3

Once DNF is released to market, the hopefully the developers will decamp to valve and help them with HL2:EP3. The times cales seem to be about the same.

Marketing fail

If the marketing department had any sense of humor they *would* release it on April 1st! (which would henceforth be rebranded for all time as Duke's Day).

Still if they cant make that date this year its not a missed opportunity yet - there's always 2012...

..running joke

okay...if this game is coming out, then whats to become the next 'it never comes' meme?

I recall people used to joke about the next version of AmigaOS...but OS4.0 (and then 4.1)

arrived last year... DNF didnt. now its here...whats next? SEGA to release a new console? ;-)

Hmm

I can only see this being an epic disappointment. I really hope I'm wrong, but expectations are going to be massive.

Still, if it has the line "I'm going to rip off your head and shit down your throat", then that should keep me happy. If it's all "PC" then it will be rubbish.

Preorder?

So, who here is going to be parting with their hard earned cash on a pre-order? Whats that, you're going to wait until its in your local shop? And even then buy it in a credit card with buyer protection....

I'll be surprised if it ships. I'll be surprised if it works. I'll be even more surprised if its playable. And as for it being enjoyable - I'd be over the moon. But we all know its going to be a big steaming pile of poo.

DNF and...

I seem to recall reading somewhere that DX3 should also reach the shelves sometime this year. Are these the times of signs and wonders? Is the apocalypse nigh?

AC since the stuff I should be working on also has a release date sometime in 2010...
