He edited the post since to say Duke is coming back in various games. More cameos more than likely. If you check the posts on the Duke Nukem Facebook page and Wild Buster Facebook page, the majority of people commenting about these cameo roles aren't happy about it nor excited. A few people are for it, but lots of negative feedback. I'm not so sure giving Duke these cameo roles is doing anything positive. It's going to take something big to turn things around for the franchise.

Here's hoping one of the cameos will be in Quake Champions :P

Regardless of the game being the kinda state where it currently is (Quake Champions) Duke if somebody still would make the most sense to be featured in it.

Oh yeah, Duke in QC would be super awesome, the active ability options are limitless thanks to his unique arsenal.

Anyway the newest patch improved things a lot, especially when it comes to balance. I think once the new hitboxes come out the game will be fine. The problem with QC is that Bethesda basically lied about the game being in beta: the closed beta was clearly in an alpha state and if you look at some of what Tim Willits says about the game it becomes pretty clear that it got released quite early in development. The game started out as an expansion to Quake Live and Willits said stuff like "Doom 2016 helped a lot in making the game possible" so chances are they started working on it as its own game in 2016.

Got quite a few ideas aswell what ability Duke would have. One idea would be to just give him Duke3D's stereoids. So a temp fullspeed boost and damage increasement and while he takes those roids, he will obviously go "hail to the king baby" and then the speed starts :)

I've been playing QC basically since the public closed beta started in April and it most definitely isn't even still anywhere near complete to release. It's very broken and lacking all kinds of necessary features left and right. Sadly.

The game has been in development on Saber Tech since atleast from ~2015, because no one makes a Triple A grade game in under 1 year and even 1 year is an extreme stretch. QC first semi publicly shown in an closed audience QCon2016 exclusive showmatch. In that showmatch pros played (showcased) the new Quake to limited audience. This means the game to be that much completed during that time, has been worked on for atleast 1-2years and 2014 sounds quite realistic to me about when the Saber Tech QC development was started.

Wow, I never knew that on Duke 3D's Duke Burger map Randy voiced the "Go away, we're like... closed." line. :D You learn something new every day.

Isn't HGH safer than steroids? IDK, "roids" just seem to be passe, or out-dated, no? What about an adrenaline shot or some kind of inhalant like ammonia smelling salts?

Out dated? Stereoids are pretty much synonymous when speaking about Duke Nukem. Could almost say that Stereoids are Duke Nukem trademark even.

But isn't Duke supposed to be outdated? I mean, he's a relic from the 80's. I think everything about him would be outdated, almost. His vehicle would be something from, at the latest, the early 2000's, his clothes would be styled right out of the 90's, his quotes are 80's esque, etc.

Wow... I just finished reading about steroids on www.steroid.com and came to realize that there exists LOTS and LOTS of different types of steroids. I was unaware that they existed in pill form. I admit, I don't really understand the science of it all but I know steroids are related to testosterone and hormones in some way. I think they boost and maximize your growth hormones.

Anabolic androgenic steroids are not foreign substances to the body; they share nothing in common with prescription or even recreational drugs.

You can get a prescription for steroids.

I simply find it ironic that Duke would be so involved with steroids when they are known to possibly cause IMPOTENCE.

Side effects are usually reversed upon stoppage of steroids.

IDK, I might be willing to give them a try. Now that I'm older, I need all the help I can get to get back in shape and JACKED.

I don't think painting Duke out to be some kind of "square" is necessary or at all beneficial to the character. Sure, he's nostalgic, but it's not like he's been in prison for 20 years... Although, He may have been in hiding. But forget all that "has been" scenario. Just set the character in modern times or heck, even 10 years or more into the future.

I'm not saying that Duke has been away from society for any length of time, I'm saying that he's someone who misses the 80's and 90's. He's someone who enjoys 80's action movies, and their heroes, he loves his women, and he doesn't like the modern way of living. He isn't a "has been", and he's not out of date, he's just Duke as he was originally intended, someone who is a huge 80's action hero cliche'. And that is what made Duke, Duke. There's not political siding, and he's not trying to make a stance on something, he just wants to save the women, and kick some alien ass.

Forgive the triple post, one more thing:

With the climate of American culture today, I honestly think a healthy dose of Nostalgia would be mighty good for those who cease to know what is good for them. Strong healthy confident white males aren't being represented in todays media and many outlets actually seem to go out of their way to even Emasculate them by presenting them as a bunch of weak Emo-nerds, inferior to another race of men who desire to eliminate us and steal our woman (mostly Blonde woman).

BTW, have you watched MTV lately? It's like the greasy record executives let out all the countries prisoners and handed them all record contracts.

Who the hell made the bums and crooks kings?

...MAN, we're all swimming in a sea of Vapidity!

Agreed.
And that is why Duke needs to be older and wiser, about 45 and not so juvenile of a personality. More like Snake Plissken and less like... Damn, what rhymes with Plissken??? :dukeangry:

This is why Duke needs to make a comeback in his full Duke 3D style. I don't want the game to be in your face with political crap, but just ignore the SJW's and the feminazis, and make Duke a badass male who loves his babes.

I agree Duke should be older, but keep him within an age range where sequels won't make him seem like Roger Moore from A View to a Kill... Duke needs to last for a while, and I'm not a fan of never aging characters. I think 35 might be better, maybe even 30, just give him the personality of older Duke. Remember, in Duke 3D Duke was only 28 (based on the birthdate I found April 9, 1967, and the game was released in January of '96) So it's all right to have him a bit younger, as long as his personality isn't like that of an average 29 year old, and more like he was in the 90's.

duke was #1 for me

doom was awesome when it came to killing a lot of enemies at once, with the super shotgun specially

quake was awesome with the grenale launcher, never seen before, i was addicted to seeing the grenades bounce

but duke was so awesome, the build engine had a special feel, even if it had older graphics than quake i felt more immersed in duke, the textures were perfect and it was the only good game to do city based levels right, i had the most fun making maps on it too, unfortunately i have no more free time anymore to make maps. i wish i could get pay to make maps, but having that has a job is impossible.
