Not a lot, but it sucks to hear. Would've been nice to actually see DNF.

3D Realms Closed

I'm surprised no one here has brought up that 3DR has gone under.

Google it.
visit www.3drealms.com
Discuss.

I'll start: go figure--what else could happen with a game taking 12 years (this far) to create?!

This is a bit of a WTF moment for me actually. Is there any details why available?

"LoL" (I think).

How ironic. "Lack of funding." They could have made a lot of money on DNF. It was famous.

Does this make the closing of Monolith's forums all the more ominous to anyone else or am I guilty of unwarranted extrapolations yet again?

Thinking that Monolith would go under now is just silly, seeing as how they recently released F.E.A.R. 2, etc.

...Right?

Pardon me Slink as I'm about to answer your question with another question.

How long can a gaming company hold on to existence without financing for a new title? I know they're hiring and such but it's just a little too odd.

Agreed. Sorry if I sounded pompous, btw. I didn't mean to! :oops: Anyway, it certainly is odd... why CLOSE the forums?

Actually Slink, no one has more internet 'tone' issues than I do.


Sometimes I read back through my own posts and think "damn I sound coarse". but one day I will master the tone thing, and the emoticon thing,....the linking thing...

the [img] thing

the formatting my text thing...


We can only hope Monolith is forced to make an announcement sometime soon. Perhaps the closing of 3dr will make them consider doing just that.

zZaRdoZz, Lith has the backing of Time-Warner, that alone serves a form of a storm buffer. At this point they only have to crank out a game or two every so often and get close to breaking even to keep afloat.

Absolutely.

Hehe, oddly enough, that sounds like they were Duke LARPing all day. I guess some one got sick of being in the glory hole all day.
