DNF Mentioned in June Issue of PC Gamer (US)

Category: DNF
by Yatta, on Thu Apr 19 2007, 02:32pm

Ultra Tree 85 from the 3D Realms forums has discovered the following except in the June issue of PC Gamer:

Remember those slick decoder rings you played with as a kid? How you sent indecipherable notes to your best friend about how gross that girl sitting next to you was? Well, at PC Gamer, we love secrets, and since we always have our well-trained, doctor-like hands on the pulse of the gaming industry, we'll have some tasty inside info for you next month. Is Duke Nukem Forever finally being released? Hey, it could happen.
Stand by as we report on any news we find in the July edition of PC Gamer.

Update: 8:00 PM - Shitload of quotes from George Broussard (thanks to Kristian Joensen):
Click each quote to be taken to the source:

I have no idea what tasty info they could be talking about. Someone at PCG feel free to contact me - I'm curious The more and more we talk about it, the more I'm pretty sure we'll lead off with releasing our own videos of the game, then do press after that. We'll see, but thats certainly the prevailing attitude internally.

Sorry gang. I don't know what they are talking about. Maybe some rumors or something, or maybe just a teaser to sell magazines.

I bet you it's that Gamasutra ad pic I posted a couple months ago. Magazines are always behind on things like that, so this makes sense.

You'll find more interesting things to do with strippers.

We're very likely to show some stuff this year, maybe a lot, and resist the urge for screenshots bi-weekly. But, at this point, you all deserve to see more than screenshots, so we're waiting till the time is right so you see more than "Hey, look....pretty".

A lot of the stuff we see mentioned is in, in one form or another. A lot is not, or outside the scope of this game (really, we do impose some limits!). It's uncanny to read a forum post and it's so dead on that you think it's an employee account or a leak. It's really hard to keep track of all the ideas as we get tons of them internally, or just reading the net (ideas suggested for all games), or from movies, or whatever.

Yeah. Duke 3D interactivity x 1000. At least in terms of scope and number of things you can mess with.

Multi-core support is in and quite nice. We all run Core Duo 6600's and 7950/8800, ati 1900 level cards. Multi-core is the future and the game is pretty much going to require it. You really have to, to make a game competitive with modern consoles, or beyond. One cpu isn't enough anymore. 64 bit will come, but is lower priorty. Vista/64 bit isn't a priority for us at the moment.
Seriously, thanks to Apache at Voodoo Extreme. We got *a lot* of visitors after they linked us.

This better be about the real deal

Kristian Joensen | 19 Apr : 14:59 DNF Mentioned in June Issue of PC Gamer (US)
Well, I don't know but aren't PC Gamer US kinda professional disapointers ?



Wasn't it they who made C&C3 sound like it was DNF ?

ultra tree 85! | 19 Apr : 14:59 DNF Mentioned in June Issue of PC Gamer (US)
I was so excited when I saw this! Can't wait for the July issue!

i hope this gonna be the real deal, but i don't really expect it.

Micki! | 19 Apr : 15:09 DNF Mentioned in June Issue of PC Gamer (US)
@Kristian...



I wouldn't say "disapointers", but rather, professinal at misleading people...



This sounds waay too spicific to be anything else than DNF related...



but no-one knows how big thier thing really is at all... if it's ANYTHING about DNF that is...

In other words PC Gamer are nothing but patent liers.

It should be added that George said a thing or two more on shacknews:





"I have no idea what tasty info they could be talking about. Someone at PCG feel free to contact me - I'm curious



The more and more we talk about it, the more I'm pretty sure we'll lead off with releasing our own videos of the game, then do press after that. We'll see, but thats certainly the prevailing attitude internally."



And:



"We're very likely to show some stuff this year, maybe a lot, and resist the urge for screenshots bi-weekly. But, at this point, you all deserve to see more than screenshots, so we're waiting till the time is right so you see more than "Hey, look....pretty"."



About if any ideas from the forums are in:



"A lot of the stuff we see mentioned is in, in one form or another. A lot is not, or outside the scope of this game (really, we do impose some limits!). It's uncanny to read a forum post and it's so dead on that you think it's an employee account or a leak. It's really hard to keep track of all the ideas as we get tons of them internally, or just reading the net (ideas suggested for all games), or from movies, or whatever."



When asnwering the question if you can drink toiler water for health:



"Yeah. Duke 3D interactivity x 1000. At least in terms of scope and number of things you can mess with."



And:



"Multi-core support is in and quite nice. We all run Core Duo 6600's and 7950/8800, ati 1900 level cards.

64 bit will come, but is lower priorty. Vista/64 bit isn't a priority for us at the moment."



When answering the question: "what sort of video cards/memory amounts are playable at the moment?":



"MO, something like a 7950 is the base for a video card. For high end action games, 2 gigs is always better than 1 gig."

Wow, he said all those on Shack?

Jobi-Wan Kenobi | 19 Apr : 21:27 DNF Mentioned in June Issue of PC Gamer (US)
this is like X-Mas and Eastern in one day together!

Some more Quotes for the george'S quote bank

This is SWEET news




Nihilanth | 20 Apr : 05:38 DNF Mentioned in June Issue of PC Gamer (US)
Hey, there's some good stuff!

RedSplat | 20 Apr : 08:23 DNF Mentioned in June Issue of PC Gamer (US)
Oh YES!

Screw that postage stamp-sized screen shot.

2007 DNF trailer ftw!

ultra tree 85! | 20 Apr : 12:03 DNF Mentioned in June Issue of PC Gamer (US)
This is the best DNF news we've gotten for a long, long, time! This year is going to be great!!!!

Damien_Azreal | 20 Apr : 12:47 DNF Mentioned in June Issue of PC Gamer (US)
Man, with that post about the system specs and info on possible upcoming trailers... I'm very happy.



At least this means my machine should be able to run DNF. And this rig is new enough I'll be able to upgrade down the road with no problem.



Great news here. Very good news. This would be great for a new podcast.
