170w ago - Though the game has been presumed dead so many times you'd need an abacus to keep track, "Duke Nukem Forever" is very much alive - and he's coming to store shelves soon.
Take Two Interactive Software pulled off one of the video game world's biggest surprises Friday, announcing not only that the over-a-decade-in-development first person shooter was nearly finished, but backing that claim up by giving the 150,000 people attending the Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle the chance to play the game.
The rest of the world will get its chance in 2011 - on the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
To quote: "Gearbox has enabled die-hard key Duke Nukem franchise builders and skilled veteran game makers to stand together and deliver, said Randy Pitchford, president of Gearbox Software.
All gamers deserve a happy ending and after all of us gamers feeling the full range of emotions about Duke Nukem Forever, I am thrilled to be in a position with the trust, power and means to make it happen."
200w ago - Recently misterwabo uploaded a video of what appears to be some leaked gameplay footage of Duke Nukem Forever to YouTube.
The newly found remains from the exploded corpse of Duke Nukem Forever have given followers of the Duke Nukem soap opera another chance to grieve the loss of 3D Realms' game.
To quote: "The apparently leaked footage is dark, blurry, occasionally covered in on-screen blood and might be familiar feeling to those of you who have sought out every scrap of footage and screen shot from the long in development Duke Nukem Forever.
At least, that's what we think this new-to-us footage is from, based on the enemies, fingerless gloves and big weapons.
And you know, some of it looks quite good, particularly the lovely headshot scatter and explosions. Plus, how often do you get accurate tumbleweed physics?"
