Does anyone seriously care?

Duke Nukem is a generic shooter whose chief selling point is how generic it is. WTF? I'm as excited about it now as I was when it was first announced.

Lol the picture looks more like a "Mission accomplished" type foto than a Ijustlostmyjob-foto. I don't know, I love conspiracy theories, and if this actually was an elaborate plan to promote DNF then at the moment they came true I'd stand up and clap because it would be fücking awesome. But it seems like a liiiiittle too much.
