Maybe you missed it last weekend, but on November 23, 2008, Guns N' Roses released their 6th album, "Chinese Democracy", after a 15 year wait! Many had given up all hope of ever seeing the album and had moved on, but apparently good things come to those who wait, as the record is getting good reviews.
So, what does this have to do with gaming? Well, here in the gaming world we have our own version "Chinese Democracy" - it's called Duke Nukem Forever. At this point, we've been waiting for this game for 11 years. It was announced in 1997, and slated to be released mid-1998, and has gone through innumerable engines and iterations, still with no release in sight; last anyone heard it was slated for a late-2008 release, but we're not holding our breath. No one ever expected to see Guns N' Roses release "Chinese Democracy" and seeing it be released ignites a little hope that one day, soon(?), we might get out hands on Duke Nukem Forever.
