Duke Nukem Forever is Complete! (Maybe)


Fire up the rumor mill! 3D Realms co-founder George Broussard may have tweeted a hint that could possibly indicate that Duke Nukem Forever [http://www.3drealms.com/duke4/] might actually be done!

Could it be? Could it possibly, actually be? Could the legendarily vaporous Duke Nukem Forever finally be complete? Probably not, no, but the most recent tweet [http://twitter.com/georgeb3dr/status/22750844938] from Broussard, one of the creators of Duke Nukem, is nonetheless very intriguing: It's an image of winged pigs.

The significance? Aside from the fact that "when pigs fly" is a common figure of speech for something that's never going to happen, Broussard himself used the term in a 2006 interview with 1Up [http://www.1up.com/do/feature?pager.offset=1&cId=3147571] when he said, "I think it'll be out when pigs fly."

Decade-spanning development period notwithstanding, the Duke has had a rough ride over the last year or so, although things have smoothed out a bit in recent months. In June, an acrimonious lawsuit between Zero Punctuation Viewer's Choice [http://www.3drealms.com] award earlier this week.

Does it mean anything? Absolutely not! Unless it does, of course. Isn't it exciting? Stay tuned!

Couldn't it also be saying that it will never be finished? Rather than "look pigs are flying, DNF is finished" it could be "This needs to happen before DNF is finished" That's how I see it anyway.

If it is, cool. If it's not, I'll never even notice the difference.

Whos willing to bet that they announce a release date and then push it back by a couple of months? That scenario seems pretty likely don't you think?

I'm not sure why anyone would get excited over this. I know Duke Nukem Forever is gaming's Sasquatch and the old Duke games were pretty enjoyable back in the day, but DNF is most assuredly going to suck when/if it is finally released. I just can't bring myself to care.

Meh, stopped caring about the game roughly six years ago. If its done then great but I really don't care anymore. Hopefully it does get released so people will stop talking about it.

I'm gonna have to quote Yahtzee from his GDC video in 2008.
"If this game doesn't turn out to be history's greatest contribution to human culture and the cure for at least 1 type of cancer, then I and every reviewer are going to saw it's bottocks off!"

After what happened to my thread about this rumor (in its earlier stages), I won't be surprised to see a severe lack in positive replies. People seem to hate Duke for some reason...
