Duke Nukem Forever Is Ready!

The Duke has been away for far too long. 15 years in fact have been and gone since we last saw him in action. This was a time when Nintendo still used cartridges for their home consoles and the tally of Sony PlayStation was at 1! It was even a time when SEGA were producing the Saturn.

Finally after 15 long years, Duke Nukem Forever is finished. It’s done, dusted and been given gold status. Gold means it’s off to be printed on either Blu-Ray or DVD disks as we speak. In a statement released 2K games had this to say about the game that – excuse the pun- has taken forever to be played, they say:

“Duke Nukem Forever is the game that was once thought to be unshippable, and yet here we are, on the precipice of history,” 2K president Christoph Hartmann stated.

“Today marks an amazing day in the annals of gaming lore, the day where the legend of Duke Nukem Forever is finally complete and it takes that final step towards becoming a reality.”

Randy Pitchford, president of the game’s current developer Gearbox added: “Always bet on Duke, I did.

“I bet on all of the developers who have ever been a part of this legendary project and I bet that none of us want to live in a world without the Duke. I’ve played the final game and it is an incredible experience – a once-in-a-lifetime opus of interactive entertainment that reminds me once again why Duke Nukem is our King.

“The developers of Duke Nukem Forever at 3D Realms, Triptych, Piranha and finally at Gearbox deserve our thanks and respect for never giving up and have truly shown us that they have balls of steel.”

Prepare to kick ass on 10th June THIS YEAR. Now, where did I put my gum?
