Duke Nukem Co-Creator: Look, The Pigs Are Flying!
It's just funny. The whole thing is just really, really funny.
And that isn't a slight against anyone involved, it's just that when you talk about a game for 13 years and it never arrives, it becomes a humorous situation. Let's just admit it. But with Gearbox Software at the helm and the rumor that we might even get a demo this year, Duke Nukem Forever might finally become a reality. And hey, if you weren't laughing before, you will now: back in 2006, Duke Nukem co-creator George Broussard told 1Up that we'd see DNF "when pigs fly." Remember that: "when pigs fly." And now, after Gearbox's hint, Broussard has produced a tweet, as found by GameSpy...and that Twitter update is a single link, which brings you here-.
Oh come on, that's gold. The question is whether or not Broussard is only making a comment in reply to Gearbox's work-to-date on DNF, or if he knows something we don't...maybe the demo really is coming soon. Maybe we'll actually download a demo called "Duke Nukem Forever" before the year is out. ...and maybe I'll just happen to bump into Ana Ivanovic at the US Open; she's feeling sorry for herself after losing, and she's all lonely and stuff and I just happen to wander by. "It's okay," I'll say consolingly, "you like ice cream?"
Seems just about as likely. But still, fun to think about.
