Saving Content - Duke Nukem Forever still matters

My editorial concerning Duke Nukem the man, the myth, the game.

"Over 14 years, we have been waiting for the follow-up to the 1996 hit game, Duke Nukem 3D. The snide, machismo, ruthless man who has saved the world from the invaders. He is a fictional character, but someone we believed in. 3D Realms gave us a character that kicked ass and chewed bubblegum. Then he ran out. The past decade has been tough for fans clammoring for the 4th game in the series “Forever”. It turned into a joke as the game has been rebuilt time and time again, delayed and delayed. Unfortunately 3D Realms ran out of money and 2K would no longer back them, and subsequently shut-down as a result. Many believed that “Duke Nukem Forever” died in 2009. Miraculously, at PAX 10, Gearbox Software announced that THEY were finishing Duke Nukem Forever and releasing it on Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and of course PC. They even had hands-on demos! People actually got to play Duke Nukem Forever."

I've played duke since the side scrollers. Duke nukem 2 was one of the games that really got me into gaming

Of course duke on n64 was amazing and made the series what it is today, but you can't take away from it's roots.

Duke on N64 made the series what it is today?! get your facts straight whitenoise.

WhiteNoise2818d ago

Duke Nukem 3D was released on all platforms.

What I meant to say was THAT GAME, which was released on N64 ( which is where I played it ) was what made duke what it is now with the speaking role etc.

MWH2818d ago (Edited 2818d ago )

alright, so Duke Nukem 64 was were you first met the King in 3D and what you said above is your personal opinion based on nostalgia rather facts. i believe you know that Duke's fame was started on the PC and had plenty of successful expansions and mods.. that's fact.

In the article it states that 3D Realms shut down, but they did not, they are still in business.

3D Realms only restructured and made their studio smaller.
That studio as far I know is now part of Gear Box.
Which I think is a great thing.
