    Duke Nukem Next Gen? Yes, Please

    Here is a testament to the power of the fans. Duke Nukem 3D, in all it's glory, is a classic. And by classic, I mean it's old as sin, and as ugly as Rosemary's baby. So Frederik Schreiber (aka Fresch), a dedicated fan, decided to pretty much reskin the whole Duke 3D world and make it run on the Unreal 3 engine, just for fun. 

    Well, people were impressed by Fresch's work. So impressed that he had no problem contacting the people at 3D Realms, Duke 3D's old home, and Gearbox Software, Duke Nukem Forever's new home. He got the blessing of the head honchos at both studios and just like that, we'll be getting a Duke Nukem 3D remake very soon. 

    Fresch says a multiplayer demo will be on the way sooner than we think. If you're as excited as I am, keep it locked for updates on the coming demo. And make sure you check out the Gearbox Forums for up to date progress reports on how the game is coming along.


    Duke Nukem Forever, Soon?

    The first big news out of PAX '10 is that Duke Nukem Forever is alive and well. 2K Games has confirmed the on-again off-again perpetual life-supported title will be released after being tossed in a bin and killed earlier this year. The underdeveloped test tube corpse of Duke Nukem Forever will be placed in Gearbox Software's laboratory, where millions of fans who have been waiting for a decade and a half, hope that a playable game can be salvaged. If Duke Nukem Forever ends up being three quarters of the game Borderlands is, I'll be thrilled.

    I never have high hopes for highly publicized projects that start and stop production, die and are resurrected. Sadly, we see it happen a few times, with titles that start off having so much promise, but when they're finally released they're underwhelming shells of their former glory. Duke Nukem 3D could be the title that got me to fully appreciate and love first person shooters, so needless to say, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Forever, for what seems like forever.
