Games "Duke Nukem Forever was announced in 1997, after its predecessor, Duke Nukem 3D, had rocked the PC market with a hero who liked kicking ass, hanging out with strippers, and murdering alien police officers that were, literally, pigs. It was inappropriate, raunchy, and amazing. It was also one of the games that gave 3D Realms the success that brought its destruction. Duke Nukem Forever began life as a completely self-funded game; its developer wanted nothing less than perfection, and would chase every update in technology in order to deliver it. The game saw monumental delays, suffered the slings and arrows of a gaming world that was first angry and then tolerant of its favorite whipping boy, had its home taken away, and has since risen from the dead. Is the public still interested in Duke Nukem? Hell yes it is. This is the story of the gaming industry's favorite joke, and how Duke may finally have the last laugh."

I've been wondering certain things like the transfer of what seemed like the whole series (and not just DNF) to Gearbox. This article not only goes into that, but even has quotes from the two main 3DR guys about the situation. IMO, it was worth reading for that alone. Oh, and all the trailers, in case anyone has yet to see them.

Amazing. E3 1998. That's when the first trailer was shown. It's been so many years... and I must've watched that one a million times. Awesome music, and IMO, it's still the best trailer released for the game.
