The New Duke Nukem Forever website!
You might not have headed over to www.dukenukemforever.com today - and if you haven't, you should. We've completely redone the site and there's loads of new information for you to see, hear, and read!
Let us know what you think once you check it out.
Hail to the King, baby!
Checking it out now - woo hoo!
best official site ever made for a game
Well there's like a million pages of discussion on the Gearbox forums, too much to read
I gotta say, awesome site... I'm at work so I couldn't get the full experience with sound yet
I loved the behind-the-scenes features so far (is it just me, or are they not working on the Flash version of the site, only on the HTML version?), although the art shown in the features was too small!
I hope that future features can be a bit more in-depth, and have larger images.
Kudos for kicking things off with an awesome wallpaper, all I can say is, keep them coming! Just one request - please make the Hall of Humility (LOL ) into wallpapers, both a version of just the picture, and a version with the hall itself like it is on the site showing the wall, the quote and the plaque. The Hall of Humility is SO awesome, I seriously want it on my desktop and I'd rotate the pictures every day
The new site looks fantastic. The new grabbag sounds abysmal.
It sounds fine. It's background music for the site.
Randy pretty much confirmed it wasn't the Grabbag that will be used for the game.
Glad you like the features - I've been slaving over them for a while and they aren't going to stop any time soon. I'm not releasing super high res images of most stuff, but I'll work on getting those Halls of Humility made - it's been on the to do list.
The Duke Cave is awesome. Hope to see more there.
The "behind the scenes" stuff is cool.
Some new screenshots wouldn't hurt...

That is right. In this thread here entitled "New Grabbag version from the new site sounds absolutely terrible."

I think there are just as many people who don't like the grabbag on the new website as those who do like it. It's personal preference.
There are things I really like about the grabbag on the new website, and things I don't like about it. One thing that can hinder enjoyment of the music is that it's a very low quality sound file for online streaming. You just can't listen to any rendition of a song like grabbag in that low quality, it makes it sound terrible.
What's not subjective is that the solo sections are horribly played.
