  1. In Topic: DNF 2001 Build Was Apparently Almost Complete

    Rewatched the 2001 trailer. :) Maybe they'll release it in December as a Christmas present to the Duke fans. Just put it on a filehost with a note saying it's an unfinished build and just for the Duke buffs.

    What did actually bother me was Duke's line to the twins before they died, that was a really terrible attempt at comedy and it soured me to hear. Obviously not to the degree it pissed off, say, the GiantBomb guys who basically made their entire DNF video to shit on the game based on that level, however I feel that it exemplifies how DNF's biggest issue is the writing from start to finish. It didnt carry a sufficient tone to let the game get serious for a moment and amp up the stakes with something a bit darker.


    The "looks like you're fucked" line before Octobabies exploded out of the twins' stomachs was tone-deaf, pissed on Duke's character, and made him look like some heartless neckbeard. And so say we all.
  3. In Topic: My god, George was an even bigger dickhead than I thought!

    ^ Agreed, a "making of" documentary would be dope. It would be interesting to see some footage of the game being made in the Duke's Enormous Tool editor.

    However, I don't know that I'd call the guys who negotiated for a higher wage "mercenaries." There was clearly some resentment towards them from the "old guard" (who had apparently been indoctrinated Mass Effect style into working 80-hour weeks for a quarter of what they could get from other companies) but these so-called "mercenaries" were just being smart. If you can get more money then go for it. Being a "nice guy" doesn't pay the bills.
  4. In Topic: DNF Modding Discoveries

    I'm glad that someone is still modding this game, that's pretty dope. Is it possible to make the Vegas section nighttime and make the buildings illuminate? (like the original design)

    Your assuming each of these different levels were made independently of each other. It makes more sense that they made one single giant map, and carved it up. When you realize late in development "SHIT! our data doesn't fit on consoles", things become more about, "how do we ship this!", vs what's proper. Give these guys a break, lot's of people probably did 24 hour days at the office trying to make DNF ship on consoles.


    IIRC a former employee said he worked for free for almost a year. They massaged his ego by telling him they desperately needed him and only he could do it etc and he fell for it. It's a super interesting story.

    And people are "harsh" on the game because it was marketed and sold as a triple-A title. Kind of like a pump and dump scam. The review embargo ensured that gamers were bilked before word got around that the ports were cancer. I got the PC version for a dollar but if I had paid $100 for the Balls of Steel 360 port I would be ready to kick Runny Shitfart out of the nearest window.
