Default Duke Nukem Forever - Getting closer?

http://www.3drealms.com/

This looks pretty sweet and I know 3D Relams has let us down on the release of duke nukem (was supposed to be in 97?) but It looks really good and maybe a sign its coming closer

I don't care when or if it comes out. To little to late.

Vaporware Awards
In addition to historical examples, there are many products whose ultimate fate is unknown, and are considered vaporware.

One such example is the computer game Duke Nukem Forever, which has been in development for over ten years, announced shortly after the success of Duke Nukem 3D in 1996 and with an original projected release date of 1998. The game has since won Wired News's Vaporware Awards numerous times. It placed in second in 2000[4] and topped the list in 2001[5] and 2002.[6] Wired News created the Vaporware Lifetime Achievement Award exclusively for Forever and awarded it in 2003. George Broussard accepted the award, simply stating, "We're undeniably late and we know it."[7] It did not make the list in 2004, but Leander Kahney noted that they had received a lot of nominations for the game.[3] By popular demand, it topped the list again in 2005.[8] Currently, Duke Nukem Forever has been announced (once again) to be in full production, still however without a specified release date.[9] Wired once again awarded Duke Nukem Forever the first place in 2006.

Yeah, the drool smilie was apart of the link. Clicked the link and it gave a 404 error. Removed the smilie from the link and it works now.

Well they released a few trailers over the years. I have no idea what their problem is. They should have released it a long time ago and made a new version every time a better graphics engine came out. At least then they could make some money on it. Their strategy baffles everyone. Them included I believe.

You might want to make a new thread for that?
