Time to kick ass and chew bubblegum, and I'm all outta gum...

It's now over a decade since 3D Realms announced that they were working on a sequel to Duke Nukem 3D. It was to be called Duke Nukem Forever, and they expected to release it by mid-1998. They're running a teensy little bit behind schedule. Now I'm not a big fan of first person shoot-em-up games, but I always had a soft spot for Duke, both DN3D and the 2D games that preceded it. I actually bought a Nintendo 64 games console back when they were quite expensive for no other reason than to play Duke Nukem 64 on it. I've been saying since about about 1998 that I'm not going to bother building a powerful games PC until Forever is released. Think of all the cash this strategy has saved me compared to those gamers who upgrade every few months! suckers ;)
