"was enjoying recognition as the voice of Duke Nukem, there was another game that garnered much attention"

Those are the key words.

"That video game is about to make a comeback, "

"That video game" refers back to "another game". So it is not Duke.

This part also confirms it: "the lead character has a new set of pipes...mine.".

His "set of pipes" wouldnt't be new for Duke.

What could this be though? Turok? SiN? Rott? Heretic? Hexen? Blake Stone? Too many choices and I fear that it will be none of those.

People keep guessing "Blood" but Stephen Wheyte is up to the task. That would be silly.

Also, it's gotta be MID Nineties.

That cuts out anything near Half-Life, and anything near Wolfenstein.


Honestly, if this is an Apogee or 3D Realms game? I might be inclined to go with something like Blake Stone. They talked about rebooting it at one point. Who the fuck knows.

Also, I don't t think it would be SIN. Sam Ellis is still around.

Yeah, going with another guy instead of Stephan Weyte would be stupid so no, not Blood.

As for Blake Stone I see that happening, hell, some weeks ago I even made the argument somewhere that Blake Stone could serve as a "spiritual successor" to Duke Nukem for 3DR since it has a very similar premise and it could easily be a Build FPS spoofing stuff like Star Trek. With the Duke voice actor though? I don't know, that feels a bit forced to me, it's another guy shooting aliens. :D

Though with Jon St John he could definitely do the more high adventure action hero of yore vibe to his voice. He has done similar voices before.

Why are Duke fans so rabid that they won't even read Jon's full post before jumping to an incorrect conclusion? This is almost as bad as "DNF 2001 Was 90% Complete!!!1" that will never die.

What keeps my expectations low is telling myself there probably wonít be a new Duke game ever. (Hope Iím wrong because it hurts saying that... ow... )

Stephan Weyte made the voices before but it doesn't mean He could have easily a contract with Warner Bros.

I won't be against the fact someone else do the voice of Caleb and the other characters (Cultist) if it's good enough, or just a game who is good enough could satisfy me since nextgen fps are often a deception because of other stuff like level design :/

What about Shadow Warrior 3? Im thinking about it since Flying Wild Hog shared a lot of stuff like recruiting with putting some pic of Shadow Warrior 2013 and 2.

I think a little about Blood (of F.E.A.R) because of this tweet, he is recording lines for WB actually:

Maybe it could be Blake Stone with a less old engine, with vertical layout... or idk

We will see in one month anyway :rolleyes:

Bethesda and Id have written the manual on how to revive 90's shooters into mammoth critical and commercial successes. Poor old Gearbox still think they bought a lemon when they aquired the Duke IP. Such a shame.

My guess is no one's guessing correctly, and it's going to be something stupid and disappointing.

nobody said it was going to be a FPS either, just a game that was popular during '96-'97 time frame

Bio Menace ?

Perhaps it will be what he was asking for : Duke Nukem and his politically correct yet annoyng and infurianting sideckick (until he figure out that if he can't beat Duke, he can only join him)

A FPS but yeah maybe it's not a big thing anyway

What do you mean? But yeah, he doesn't mention FPS in the facebook post but he does in the twitter post.
Better to not have too much hopes for sure, it could be Blake Stone with Doom Engine 1 for vertical stuff :x .... or something i won't care personally x)
Need really some old retro fps in nextgen but i can dream. (not only DOOM)

Okay, then I blame Jon for this (though not for the thread title, that's like "dude, have you even read that post you're opening a thread about?"). :D I didn't see the FB post, only the one on twitter where he said FPS.

Anyway I think Jimmy's right and this is going to be something forgotten like Chasm 2 or I dunno, something you'd never even think to mention on the same page as Duke in relevance. Like you know, for example if you're a Ukranian indie dev working on a retro FPS you may just get your hands on the name Chasm so you can say that "the legend is back, boys!" or something. Nobody will care if the game is good though, I mean a retro shooter with JSJ's voice? Sign me up, I don't care if it's Mortyr 3 or something.

I thought Chasm was more associated with Quake O_o
Like, it has always been called "The poor man's Quake" if I'm not mistaken ...


Regardless, if they were to make a Chasm 2, I would be interested but I don't see what they could do with it >_> Like Chasm's universe doesn't give anything worth building ontop to make a sequel worth the trouble.
