Duke Movie Poll
8/13/01 1:17 PST | Community News |

VoodooExtreme have a new poll, asking who should play Duke? Referring of course to the Duke movie and the search for an actor (scroll down, kid!), there's a choice of many stars like Arnie, Howie Long, and Bruce Willis. Go vote!

Duke Movie Casting
8/12/01 3:03 PST | Community News |

The official Duke Movie site is letting people email the producers to find out who should play Duke. The Rock, Arnie, and interestingly Bruce Campbell, are highly picked actors, although if you ask me they should do a CGI movie like Final Fantasy and ensure Duke both sounds and looks like Duke. ;) Check it out here!

GameSpot have a feature on Mike Wilson, founder of the almost-defunct Gathering of Developers. The feature covers GOD's demise, history, and the fact that most of the ex-GOD staff are joining Wilson to work on a new DVD magazine, SubstanceTV. It's not a bad summary of what's happened to GOD, and does give insight for its consilidation into Take2's New York office. Check it out here!

    Sweet merciful crap, we've added another hilariously unfunny item to our articles section. This time, it's a look at some "alternative" Duke Forever bosses - rather than fighting robonutter Dr. Proton, you could maybe Duke it out (pun very much intended) with the A-Team, felt puppets, and psychotic Microsoft cyborg-men!

    Scott Interviewed
    8/3/01 8:13 PST | Community News |
    Lucky
    As promised, Soapbox has a spiffy follow-up to the George Broussard interview - the new interview featuring Scott Miller now fielding the questions. They're the same questions as George got, so let's compare answers! ;)
    It would really be a shame if DNF took the same route as Daikatana in taking TOO long to be realeased. I sure hope this is not the case.

    Well, it's a genuine misconception to think that a game that takes several years has a good chance of being awful. Personally, I tend to think the opposite -- when craftsmen spend a lot of time on a product it seems like it will be a better product. But oddly, there's a myth in the game community that long development results in bad development. It's happened that a few games that had longer development times have not turned out so well, but it happens much more often that game with short or normal development times end up doing poorly.

    I've talked to several developers at other companies recently, and there are in fact several super hit games that have been released in recent years that had much longer development times than the public is aware of -- those developers smartly didn't announce the start of development so the public wouldn't know the development length. That's a tactic we're doing in the future, too (and maybe we're doing it now, but we can't tell you :) .

    Check out the interviews at Soapbox. There's also an interview with a gas station attendant, too, for some reason :)

    Duke 3D In Top 50 Games
    8/2/01 5:30 PST | Duke Nukem 3D News |
    Lucky
    The 'Spy's feature, the Top 50 Games of All Time, today counts down numbers 20 to 11 - and Duke 3d clocks in at #13. The feature polls prominent figures in the gaming industry on their favourite games, so let's see what Levelord, mapper for Duke 3D and now at Ritual, said about Duke:
    Levelord, Ritual Entertainment: "The best example of the Fun Factor beating technology and, dare I say, even id. Duke came out at the same time as Quake one. It was a sprite-based game versus real 3D, yet it still won a huge audience and still holds acclaim today. Plus, it had some of the best levels ever designed. ;)
    You can check out the chart here - or, you can check out GameSpy's Hall of Fame entry for Duke 3D, which was the first game ever to be inducted into it (that entry's older than this site ;)

    Broussard Interviewed
    8/1/01 6:47 PST | Community News |
    Lucky
    Holy crap, something DNF-related! ;) The wacky funsters at Soapbox have interviewed George Broussard about Max Payne and Duke Nukem Forever. Shall we take a look? (Clue: the answer is "yes"):
    Most developers have come out with the dreaded "When its Done" response to when a game will be released and I've noticed that DNF also carries that same label. Could we at least get a "Year" that it will be released? Maybe something like "1st half of 2002"?

    No. We've been doing "when it's done" for 5-6 years and we won't change now. People just have to be patient and play other games. Then they will be pleasantly surprised one day :)

    Part 2 featuring Scott Miller is coming soon. Meanwhile check out the George interview here!

    Let's take a look at a few features we have in our archives, shall we? :)

    Our Community Interviews talk to the mod teams, mappers and other such folk that make the Duke community what it is. We've got interviews with the teams behind Pray Your Prayers, Starship Troopers, and Platoon, and others - especially of interest since we unearthed many old, popular mods in our TC files archive.

    The Duke Nukem 3D Walkthrough, which we recently completed with a walkthrough for the Atomic / Plutonium Pak episode, will solve your gaming problems.

    We've also got an assload of articles, from the downright bizarre to serious in style, most of them being the former ;) Enjoy!

    And, of course, it never hurts to take a look at the Official Duke Nukem Forever FAQ just in case you have any questions - or even if you don't.

    Well, according to Old Married Guys, anyway :) It's a grudge-match article, scoring points off Duke and Max in various categories, such as what they're addicted to (Payne - painkillers, Duke - Internet porn? Surely they mean steroids? :), philsophy, and who has the best moves. Slightly biased against the Dukester, but hey, us young, un-married guys were bound to diagree on the outcome ;) Read it here!

    Mail Worms - PLEASE READ
    7/22/01 14:56 PST | Community News |
    Lucky
    If you've emailed any PlanetDuke address using Outlook / Outlook Express and consequently have us in your address book, please take note that we're getting hammered with the W32SirCam mail worm, which when you have it, sends one of your random files to your contacts with the worm attached.

    I've taken the liberty of looking up some advice for those of you who have been infected; here's a little info on the nature of the thing:

    The W32SorCam worm takes files from your hard drive, infects them, and then sends them out to people on your contact list in Outlook. Even some strains are known to replicate themselves (eating up hard drive space), and even in some cases deleting files and folders on your hard drive. Therefore, this worm is both a security leak as well as a nuisance. Take note that this is an issue only with Windows machines.
    There is a file to remove it here if you need it. We'd appreciate you checking anyway, as getting spammed with the thing thirty times a day isn't fun ;)
