Duke Nukem Forever has gone gold

Filed under
Gaming

When we say a game has "gone gold," it means that the work on the game has finished, and a master copy has been sent out to the duplication plants to be pressed, packaged, and shipped out to consumers. This used to mean that the development team could take a break, but now going gold is likely to simply start a countdown to the inevitable day-one patch. Let's not be cynical, however, because today is a grand day: Duke Nukem Forever has gone gold.

"Duke Nukem Forever is the game that was once thought to be unshipppable, and yet here we are, on the precipice of history," said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. "Today marks an amazing day in the annals of gaming lore, the day where the legend of Duke Nukem Forever is finally complete and it takes that final step towards becoming a reality."

DN gone gold

Just glanced up from my computer screen to look out my window . . .

saw a flock of pigs flying by.

re: dn

yeah, I heard hell froze over. Clown

Re: Duke Nukem Forever has gone gold

I am SO glad the end of the world has been pushed back five months so we could all finally play this.

re: dn gold

Yeah, I just might have to get a copy of windows so I can play it.

Do you know I just found out a few months ago that the 15 year old DN 3D could be played on Linux natively? Party

re: dn gold

Natively as in without the need of DOSBox? That sounds intriguing to me. I cleared through the game more than I'd like to admit, but I might have to play through again before DNF gets here Big Grin

re: dn

yeah. Apparently, Ryan ported it years ago. Rolling Eyes But I didn't hear of it until this guy either made PPAs for Ubuntu / Debian(s) out of it or his own port. It works really good tho. Stable, responsive, modern controls.

He's got Windows and Mac versions too.

Three great Android tools for Linux and Windows sysadmin

Systems administration isn't a simple job — and being able to respond to issues quickly is a definite plus. Not long ago, server problems meant receiving a phone alert followed by a trip to the data center to fix whatever was wrong. Today, having full-powered computers such as smartphones or tablets literally in your hand is a tremendous help when doing sysadmin. Load Android with a few key applications and you can remotely monitor servers and services, get alerts and warnings as they occur, and solve problems without any travel at all. Read more

Windows Phone Shrinks In Android-Dominated Europe, As New iPhones Boost iOS’ Share

Spare a thought for Microsoft, a relative newcomer to the mobile making business, after Redmond completed its $7.2BN+ acquisition of former European mobile making powerhouse Nokia earlier this year. If Microsoft was hoping to see quick marketshare wins in Europe once its hands were fully on the levers of production that has not come to pass. The latest 12-week smartphone sales figures from Kantar Worldpanel ComTech, up to this September, indicate that Windows Phone’s already small share of the smartphone market has shrunk in Europe — dropping 0.3 percentage points in aggregate across the top five markets in Europe (the UK, France, Spain, Italy and Germany).
