Come Get Some! | Duke Nukem by Urbanator Come Get Some! | Duke Nukem by Urbanator
After so many years of waiting, if only Duke Nukem Forever had been like this. :'(

Regardless of what people thought about DNF, you can't deny they got the alien's spot on.
Having played the hell out of Duke Nukem 3D in the past, I couldn't resist not doing an action
scene of Duke facing off against his alien foes. I had trouble deciding who to use as Duke's
main nemesis in this scene, but in the end I stuck with the awesome Cycloid Emperor.

Duke's pose was primarily inspired by Max Payne, having just recently played one and two
for the first time. Very good stuff!

I also threw Sonya Blade from Mortal Kombat into the fray. Originally I was going to have her
fight alongside Duke, but in the end I implemented her into the role of 'damsel in distress'.
Pretty sure she'd lay the smack dab on that Enforcer any second though. ;P

I haven't played DNF but I was in a laughing fit when I heard people complaining about how ruse, sexist, and disgusting he is. I wanted to say "Hey, this is Duke Nukem, it's not exatly Shakespeare"
Urbanator Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
True, though even Duke in his prime never delved into
a lavatory with his hands and messed with wet feces.

Sure he stood in it occasionally, but 'shit happens'. :V
JonnySchweer Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2015
no kidding. I did lie the not-so-thinly vield nods to all the various other movies and series Duke had in it.

"Damn I'm Good"

"I'm Duke Nukem and I'm coming to get the rest of you alien bastards"

I enjoyed DNF for what it was even though it was a let down

One word: AWESOME.
soldat555 Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
In the words of Duke Nukem: "Holy cow!" :D lol

Seriously, I didn't think DNF was THAT bad. Yes, the women in DNF were mostly ditzy sluts but that's not much different than how sexual DN3D was... I mean c'mon, the women in that game were strippers, a hooker in a bar, damsels tied up in alien goo (Which Duke doesn't rescue), a random cave dancer, and cheerleaders in the middle of Duke's battle with the Cycloid Emperor. All DNF does is go one step further as it's a sequel... My biggest annoyance was the recharging health (Which they tried to justify calling it his Ego) and the fact he can bench press 600 lbs but he couldn't carry more than 2 guns... Granted there's an update where you can fix that 2nd problem. I think DNF is far from perfect but it's not the crappiest game I ever played. Just surprised about people razzing it's adult themes and all the sexual content, I have to wonder if those complaints came from people who played DN3D... :?

As for Sonya Blade being the damsel in distress... I can totally see that! I mean think of that scene in the movie where Shang Tsung just totally grabs her and drags her off to Outworld. For those that hated the MK movie: The same thing happens in the game! That's why in Mortal Kombat 2 and in the story mode of Mortal Kombat (2011) you see her tied up in Shao Kahn's gladiator-like Colosseum arena. So yeah, I can totally see her being one of the helpless Duke Nukem babes. ;)

Overall, AWESOME work. Very nicely done. Gotta favorite this!
Urbanator Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It wasn't so much the themes that I felt negatively
towards, but the gameplay. DN3D just felt so much
more satisfying, the level designs were superior in
every sense, the combat was solid and the humour
was better imo. That's my vibes. Not enough massive
scale fights like in DN3D.

But the enemy designs in DNF were excellent, staying
very true to its predecessor in most ways. When they
upgraded to 4 guns, that was better, but give Duke
all the guns - he needs a whole lotta firepowar dat boi. :V

Thanks! I'm glad you like this! :D
soldat555 Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
DN3D's levels were larger and took more time to beat, and the graphics in DN3D were great for the time... Will give the game that. DNF (In my opinion) was just made too late, the weapon limitations and recharging health, linear levels, that's almost every FPS game now sadly. If 3d Realms got off their butts and released it around the same time as Doom 3, I don't think it would've been as bad as it turned out in 2011.

But nah, I don't think it's bad... Not awesome but not the total crapfest a lot of people made it out to be... I just hope when I make the Duke Nukem series (Including the classic platform games) into Wolf3d mods, they will be received with better reception. :)
Urbanator Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah agreed, it didn't deserve the severe lashing it got,
but it could have been so much more.
Harrkonen Featured By Owner May 25, 2014
No matter how good dnf was it wasn't going to be good enough. 
I thought it was fun enough persoanlly. Better than some of the crap that gets shoveled out there

Urbanator Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It could have had so much more potential, heck if
they had kept with the original DN3D formula, I'd
have been more then happy. But alas. :'(
Ah well, at least the aliens look quite good. :P

I still prefer the classic Duke Nukem's better; Duke Nukem the Manhatten Project and Duke Nukem 3D in particular...that new re-make was utterly terrible
Urbanator Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Agreed, although I didn't think it was 'utterly terrible',
but it wasn't in the same league as 3D by any stretch.
Dyceman Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2013
what I didn't like about the classic Duke Nukem 3D is it was too hard, if you compare it to Doom or Wolfenstein or other famous old FPS is really hard after the first few levels even on "Piece of Cake" difficulty. and this is coming from someone who has played and completed Doom on most difficulties and Wolfenstein too...I don't know what it is that makes it harder...maybe there is some glitch in the game or HOW the difficulty goes up is different. don't get me wrong I love a challenge, but I also love to be able to breeze through obliterating the enemy like a real Duke Nukem...which is the whole point of having difficulties, set it to easy if u want to obliterate or harder if u want a challenge...duke nukem games seem to have a problem with this. Doom however balances difficulty and gameplay perfectly. 
Urbanator Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I think I disagree somewhat with you there, I've gone through 3D many
times on 'Come get Some' which is basically imo, Nukems version of 'Ultra Violent'
from Doom. But I can't say I was ever really in a position were I thought it was
too hard. Infact compared to Doom, which had enemies that could resurrect fallen
foes, shoot pillars of flames up your backside, walking skeletons with heat seeking
missile launchers, Pain Elementals that spawned an endless stream of flaming
skulls and lets not forget the impregnable Cyber Demon, I thought it was easier if
anything hah. But you did have to take things carefully admitidly, but then I'm a
sucker for a challenge. And I can't really speak for the easier difficulties, as I don't
think I ever played them. :P
Dyceman Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2013
well all I know is you encounter one room full of enemies or filled with one or two more powerful enemies like those raptor guys with the devastator or one of those really big boss dudes in duke nukem...and you die really easily...the only enemy that was easy to kill were those tiger like guys, the pig cops were deadly at close range and often came up out of no where. I have Duke Nukem 3D on my 360 now, downloaded it from the marketplace...maybe they altered the difficulty or something "shrugs"
Urbanator Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
'Tiger like guys'? Hmmm, I'm not sure what your referring to there.
Oh I'm not saying the game was ever a cakewalk, it could be challenging
to say the least. And yeah, Piggy's were tough customers. :P
Dyceman Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2013
yeah you see this is the can't make one of the most common enemies one of the most tough...that doesn't tiger guys I mean those dudes who have striped skin, fangs and red eyes...they look like alien tigers or something to me. they were like the weakest form of enemy "shrugs".
Urbanator Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Those aren't stripes, thats muscle and stuff, not black stripes like a tiger. :P
And they're called Assault Troopers (or Lizard Troopers) so I understand. They
were very weak.
Protozoid Slimers were not nice lil enemies. Glad they removed them in DNF lol.
