Perhaps this was the one time to not bet on Duke.

Yah - it's a bit sad that the game won't see the light of day.

Here's the 2001 demo - where I thought the game was at its best:

I'm glad that you were a part of something that gave so many people hope and something to look forward to, but if it ever were released, it would have only been a couple of years and DNF would have wound up collecting dust on a shelf due to being over played and/or the consoles it ran on were obsolete and no longer being used for day to day gaming.

My kitchen table still holds my copy of Acquire just fine, and I have no problem bring new people into my hobby with old games and a great endless source of information and expansion of enjoyment of those games here on the geek.

Thank you for being part of something wonderful, and then topping it with BGG Forever!

oh, by the way, it's your turn. I dare you to merge Continental. ...and pass the potato chips, please.

sigh, this reminds me of, well, 1996, when LAN was the end all in gaming. When your opponent sat across the cubicle wheel and you could hear where they were. No other game combined humour and violence in such perfect harmony. That said, long live BGG. It has wasted far more company bandwidth than Duke Nukem could have dreamed of!

I think it's a nice sentiment you're expressing but that's an odd way to express it. It's like someone in 1910 saying that in a couple years nobody will watch an old film, and books will always be able to be re-read and bring new people to reading. Space Invaders is over 30 years old now, but sit down with it (or better yet, stand up with it) and it's still amazing.

It WERE an innocuous 'chiding remark' that I would discern as meant within a "good-humoured" intent.
I spent many a 'quarter' playing "Space Invaders" as I awaited upon a 'pizza' at the little place outside of our barracks.
cool

Well maybe. However 100s of films were made in those days, how many are watched today? Anyway you are comparing apples to oranges, it's a fact that video games become obsolete very quickly.

How many people still play Space Invaders? For that matter when was the last time you personally verified it's amazingness? Even with Space Invaders being a design that does not inherently suffer from technical obsolescence I bet there are not many people playing it today. A first person shooter like Duken Nukem is the poster child for technical obsolescence. Remember Doom? Brilliant right? Want to play a game today where you can't look up or down? I don't.

I got in everyone's hostile little face. Yes, these are wooden cubes from boardgaming. Yes, I'm comfortable with that. I am enlightened.

From what I've seen, I'd say they quit making video games some time ago.
