The big shocking news for last week was the closure of 3D Realms. Although it shouldn’t have been surprising given the dozen-year development of Duke Nukem Forever, it’s still upsetting for any PC gamer.
While Duke may find a home elsewhere, for now all we have are vicarious glimpses from screenshots and trailers. Today we get to see a little more of what playing Duke Nukem Forever would have been like, thanks to a demo reel by former 3D Realms artist Brian Brewer.
According to Shacknews, the footage was not meant for public consumption, as Brewer's website reads "As much as I would like to show everyone I can't. This is for game developers only."
The video shows gameplay footage filled with weapons in action with Duke fighting bosses. Check out the video over on Shacknews.
It was like a enthusiast trying to always have the best hardware and not ever getting to USE the hardware because he constantly was working on his computer.
But it did look pretty good..
If Crytek had half a brain they would buy it and give it Crysis Graphics or the option upon install to use 2 different engines based on the computers speed.
