The E3 2001 Duke Nukem Forever Trailer still gets me going

If Randy Pitchford released it from his semen encrusted clutches and let someone finish the bastard thing it'd be the ultimate revival boomer shooter.

I prefer the trailer for the Duke Nukem PSP trilogy since its a masterclass on how to stretch out nothing.

On topic: If Pitchford was smart hed get fans to run with it a la Black Mesa.

This is one of the most epic trailers ever. It literally has everything, random terminator shows up, jet ski's and buildings collapsing for no reason.

I remember getting a live back-room demo of this at E3 1999, from Broussard when it was running on Quake, I cannot explain how fucking HOT this looked. They had so much crazy, random shit in the game. It looked finished. LOL oops

edit: Ah this was the UE version. I went looking for the PC Gamer cover story that I wrote on this, but the more I think about it, I think I wrote TWO of them  :lol

3D Realms paid for development themselves, so the publisher couldn't force them to push it out.

George Broussard also had a bad case of FOMO, so they kept switching engines to whatever was hot at the time.

The dev cycle has its own Wikipedia page. :lol

We had INSANE page counts, +500. Shit was like a phone book. Those guys put me through college. Was always telling my college profs I had to miss class cuz I had to fly to Texas for an interview and they'd be like "Oh wow good luck, I hope you get hired!" when actually I was going to interview Romero and Carmack and shit. God DAMN those were fun days. Sometimes I pick up PC Gamer in an airport and it's like 70 pages and I get real sad.

edit: Holy shit someone has been scanning and uploading issues to archive.org!!! I was wrong, Jason Bates wrote the first cover, I did the second one. Gary Whitta was EIC! Shit!

Christmas guide with 128MB RAM stick and NVIDIA GeForce 256. :whew

Microsoft Sidewinder Gamepad :neogaf

277 pages, though.

PC Gamer (UK or US now, I think they're the same magazine no matter) is like 100 pages or less now a days. So Sho Nuff is right on that front. There's like 20 pages of previews, 2-4 pages of news, 6 pages for "what we recommend" and then another 2-4 pages for "future tech," bar like a few pages for ads. It's kind of sad how hard the Internet completely fucked over hobby magazines.
