Come Get Some!

Some hands-on previews of the fabled Duke Nukem Forever are surfacing, from such gaming outlets as:

Ars Technica

And soon many more, I'm sure.  I'm also sure that there a lot of long bearded mad prophets in the streets right now, armed with the game's scheduled release date of May 3, 2011, holding up signs and screaming "It's the end of the World!  Duke Nukem Forever is coming!".  First announced in 1997, DNF is, without a doubt, one of the most infamous pieces of vapourware in the history of gaming.  Bearing the burden of being the sequel to one of the most beloved FPS games ever made, the project has faltered many times, not the least of setbacks being the closing of its developer 3D Realms in 2009.

And now, Duke is back.  Handed to developer Gearbox, makers of the terrific SF FPS Borderlands (2009), we'll soon see that cigar-chomping lady-killer back in action.  Hail to the KING, baby!

Here's some gameplay footage of the original I made a few years ago.
