"This weekend press outlets all over the net were lamenting the closure of 3D Realms and the possible last-minute cancellation of Duke Nukem Forever. The more we reflected on the news, however, the more we have become suspicious of the stories coming out of 3D Realms and resonating around the geek-o-sphere. Sure, studio closures are commonplace in the current economic recession, and we admit that the cancellation would make sense, especially if the developers really have accomplished nothing in the last 12 years of the game's development. Those cold facts aside, something tells us this story is fishy. And besides, everyone knows you never bet against the Duke."
