I did not want to write this post because, of all the things, I’m superstitious of this video game’s release. What if this post jinxes it? What if a rearranged word here ripples out and somehow topples the balance of this game’s release? Nevermind that, and brace for the following bold, italicized and underlined sentence in all caps:-
DUKE NUKEM FOREVER IS FRIGGIN’ REAL!
Now that that little formality is done with, here are the quick facts about this long, long awaited sequel to the 1996 game Duke Nukem 3D.
The game is being finished by Gearbox Studios, based on now-defunct 3D Realms’ original code. The game will be released in 2011for the PS3, Xbox 360 and, of course, the PC.
Gearbox’s president Randy Pitchford revealed a bit of the plot to the Wall Street Journal:-
“Aliens come and say they’re going to be our friends, and Duke knows this isn’t going to work out. Duke once again is in the pivotal spot and it’s up to him to save the world.”
Plots? Who wants plots in a first person shooter? Not I!
This game is every young gamer’s sweetest dream come true. Will Gearbox deliver? More importantly, will the game actually be released? Find out in a few months’ time!
