New Duke Nukem Forever Image
Okay, so sit back, grab a glass of eggnog, and prepare for a classic holiday jest. 3D Realms has been stringing the unassuming along for over a decade now, and just when the hype begins to die down, they toss out a little update or a new screenshot of some kind.
We've already told you that this is the most amazingly elaborate hoax in the history of the industry, but hey, we always like to play along when the spirit moves us. What you see here is the new screenshot, released by 3D Realms as a holiday gift to all you loyal devotees who have spent the last 10+ years following every new "development." Yep, it sure is pretty. To be perfectly honest, we're a bigger fan of the bottom pic at their website; see now, that's a wallpaper worth having. As for the fictitious game itself, there's no information on any new progress or occurrences, but then again, how much can you really reveal about a game that doesn't exist? Well, just keep tossing out some Photoshopped images and tease us every now and then with something vague that makes good headlines, and we'll keep lapping it up. We admit it. We're suckers for this kind of thing, and we know you are, too. Come on; it's okay to admit it!
Of course, if DNF ever actually comes out, we'll be forced to eat our words. But considering the game probably won't release until 2052, we'll be too old to chew much of anything, anyway.
