Duke Nukem Forever Is Big and a Lot of Fun, Says Gearbox

image

Gearbox's Randy Pitchford says that Duke Nukem Forever will wow people with its size and with its quality.

Duke Nukem Forever is big. So big, in fact, that people will be astonished at its immense size. That's according to Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford, who called the single player campaign "huge" and said it weighed in at roughly three times the size of Activision's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

Pitchford said that people would be surprised at just how long the campaign was, as from an outside point of view, Duke Nukem Forever went from "dead and buried" to "coming out next year" very quickly. Unsurprisingly, he also claimed that the game was great from start to finish, and that while perfection was impossible, anyone who thought that Duke Nukem Forever was anything other than a "big triple A title," would be won over almost immediately.

Obviously, as the ever-so-enthusiastic head of the studio making Duke Nukem Forever, anything that Pitchford says about it has a certain degree of spin to it, but reports from people who have had a chance to play it have been very positive. Duke Nukem Forever is scheduled for release early next year.

Possibly coming on 12 DVDs? With every second [of development time] on display?

The funny thing about DNF is that it will come out before HL2 Episode 3. Now, I thought THAT to be impossible.

Just the way it should be then.

I sure hope that it's not only long, but hard too.

Lovely. Here's to hoping it isn't all some elaborate prank, seeing as I would like to see this game released.

Do we get to control every footstep he makes with the bumper controls?

Now the challenge is on for Valve to beat DNF! lol

Gabe Newell shat brix at this.

Just give us the demo!

I hope we see many of the classic Duke weapons. Ditch your wussy assault rifles, The Duke uses Old Painless. Would be killer sweet if we got some sort of portable nuclear launcher too.

I Wonder if it will be like Sacred 2, on 2 Dual layer DVD's or even 3?!

Hell it might have to go right to Blu-Ray QQ means id have to go look for a Blu-Ray Drive and a Spare Sata Port xD already got 3 Dual Layer Dual Layer Writers and 4 HDD's xD

Tattaglia:

long and hard lol.

Codenet:

Epic pun was Epic xD

Well 3 times the size of MW2, that's what? 12 hours?

Hope he's right about it being a climax from start to finish.

DNFは最初から最後までクライマックスだぜ!

that's because episode 3 is well underway to become the new DNF.

Seeing lots of promises coming out around DNF now.... anyone else find it potentially coincidental that DNF also stands for "Did Not Finish"?

I seriously posted that on my facebook status about a minute before i read it here, lol. if there hadn't so obviously been a fuckton of money spent on it over the last 13 years i'd be inclined to say it's just some game developer joke on the general public. it is starting to look like moving along though...

News flash! Game's producer says their game is totally awesome and you should buy it!

Surprisingly I've gone from "not giving a shit about Duke Nukem Forever" to "You know, I might actually give this one a shot" in a reletively short amount of time. While I did think Gearbox was just taking on Duke so DN:F could finally be released and they'd make sales off the gimmick of the whole saga alone I'm starting to see evidence that they have actually been taking the whole thing seriously and may end up delivering a game that's actually better than mediocre.

I know right? But at least we know for a fact that 3D Realms did some work on it. After all, that $20 million had to go somewhere right?

I'm hoping for an April release at the latest. Come on Gearbox!

That is actually kinda amazing... Though I don't care one bit about either game :P

I'm hearing a lot of size jokes about their massive package, and how stiffly it deals with openings in the market, but we all know about men who brag about how big there's is.

I'm just hoping it leaves people satisfied without being a huge phallusy. It's got a lot more to do with how its used than being a huge release.

Dead Randy, please stop telling me about how good the game is and send me a copy already.

This game can't come out soon enough.
I don't care what anyone says, this will be a day one purchase for me FOR SURE.
I have waited far too long for this game!
Hell I know kids who have been born and finished elementary school during the time this game was being made.
I could tell my friends 11 year old nephew that this game was only just starting to be made before he was born.
THATS CRAZY!
And To own a part of gaming history pretty much.
I don't know... I'm still worried that I'll wake up and it'll be a couple months ago and all this about DNF will all be a dream...

Personally, I'm more interested in the DN3D remake that I've heard is being made in the same engine. Now THAT would be awesome! :)

How surprising, a developers says his game is great. Never thought that would happen. I'll keep the final judgement after the game is out but from what I've seen the game is average and it doesn't matter how long it is, quality over quantitiy. I think the only reason why most people think it's great and why it will sell really good, is simply because it has become a legend and now it will finally be released. Like I said, I can't tell yet how good it will be but I won't let myself get hyped and like it simply because of nostalgia.

Would someone please take this game off life support? It's been in a coma for longer than I've been gaming. There are no signs of life. Have some mercy and just let it die.

And lo! The sea turned red!

I remember when C+VG actually used to be a magazine and was good.

I hope Yahtzee does not re-review the actual release of the game, the original one should stand.

i doubt even gearbox are that stupid

Apparently you're the one who's been in a coma, friend. The game is actually being released.

It's still not big enough to be worth the 13 year waiting time.

Gotta love the hype before the let down.

Duke Nukem makes me nostalgic every time I see the name. I'm going to play the hell out of this title.
