apehater: i'm actually most interested in the 1998 version of dnf. it kinda looks and feels way more like duke than the 2001 version, anyone with me here? or are you with the op and prefer the 2001 version?

i really hope that the 1998 build will somehow leak, even if its not that complete compared to the 2001 build.
I would hope that if they come to an arrangement, what was there from the Quake engine (1998) would be released too. Would be very interesting to see how far they were in development before discarding engines and starting over.

Yay... if it happens ANOTHER fucking re-release of Duke - which will no doubt be Steam only and not given to any of the current users (I have ALL of the D3D/DNF releases on Steam... as well as on here)

No point unless you can milk it eh Bitchford?

Not really surprising considering they did the same with that Bulletstorm re-release. I think I've heard a rumor that the company was hemorrhaging funds after some of their latest disasters. Honestly wouldn't be too heart broken to see the end of the studio after what they've done to the Duke and Aliens IPs.
That's... pretty good news, actually! About as good as can be expected. At least all that stuff is going to be released in some form or another, rather than just rotting away on some hard drive. I can't blame Gearbox for milking the fans, they paid for the IP after all. Right now I'm most intrigued about the wildly conflicting assessments re: how much of the game is actually done. Schreiber says 90% done, 14-16 hours of gameplay, Randy says 9% done and sticks with the "there are only little vignettes/snippets, incomplete pieces of stuff" version of the story.

Who is telling the truth?

Is Randy deliberately underselling the 2001 build in order to not look like an ass when it comes out? I gotta say, it's an odd way to pitch your upcoming Duke Collection when you describe what is arguably your main selling point with "you will be disappointed".

And will it even come out on gog?

Stay tuned for another episode of crushing disappointment and abject despair in the never-ending saga of Duke Nukem Forever!
Who cares we (Duke fans) will buy it again even for a slight chance of having something new or in our case old 2001 edition. For some reason i think we'll got Duke Collection with all games in one package with a promise of "free Duke Nukem 2001 edition bonus coming soon" for all who pre-order Deluxe Edition only for $69.99 and register a special code on Gearbox website.
I still buy it, because i'm that desperate, i want to revive my old memories no matter what. Many died waiting for that game.
This is what we might get from 3D Realms' 90% complete game

And this is how good Duke Nukem Forever can be for TRUE fans ;)

Black haired woman in a straight jacket? I never would have predicted that as a Duke Nukem enemy... The Ring certainly was influential to games in the mid 00s.
could a gamie... welp, character, to be fair, liek duke evah exist noadays? its kinda offensive even if its obvs a parody. i honest lee dont kno wut to think
