Default Duke Nukem Forever? NEVER!!

I swear, it's getting to the point that I think all of these teasers we keep getting are nothing but a running joke put on by 3D Realms.

3D Realms still alive, releases another DNF screenshot - The Tech Report

Anyone can put out a pre-rendered shot like that.

I heard they've got a thermometer on a webcam from down in Hell to show DNF's release date... When it hit's zero...

I have some inside news people - They ARE still alive and no it's not a fake, it's coming out when it's done - What caused this major delay is mostly they had to scrap all the maps and start over - now they scrapped them again and working on a DX 11 / DX 10 revised engine and is expected out 3 days before the end of the mayan calendar (that would be an appropriate release date !)

Man, I remember eagerly waiting for this what...8 years ago? Last thing I saw was that "gameplay video" in the rail car ala Indiana Jones.

Duke 3d will always hold a place dear to my heart - that ice blaster and shrinker gun were so much fun.

Duke 3D DOS leaves a bad taste for me - while the 1st map maybe 2nd were decent, the rest of the maps were not as good IMO, mediocre I'd say!

How the hell do they expect to make money from this game now after decades - it must've cost more than a blockbuster hit :D

^^ Yes but has anyone actually bought it? If an artist makes an album and nobody listens to it does it make a sound? lol
