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."

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.

  • FOI: NHS Trusts are ransomware pin cushions [Ed: Windows]
    The FOI requests found that 87 per cent of attacks came via a networked NHS device and that 80 per cent were down to phished staffers. However, only a small proportion of the 100 or so Trusts responded to this part of the requests. "These results are far from surprising. Public sector organisations make a soft target for fraudsters because budget and resource shortages frequently leave hospitals short-changed when it comes to security basics like regular software patching," said Tony Rowan, Chief Security Consultant at SentinelOne. "The results highlight the fact that old school AV technology is powerless to halt virulent, mutating forms of malware like ransomware and a new more dynamic approach to endpoint protection is needed.

10 reasons to use Cinnamon as your Linux desktop environment

Recently I installed Fedora 25, and found that the current version of KDE Plasma was unstable for me; it crashed several times a day before I decided to try to try something different. After installing a number of alternative desktops and trying them all for a couple hours each, I finally settled on using Cinnamon until Plasma is patched and stable. Here's what I found. Read more
