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-.

Fly, Piggies, Fly!!!

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.

If Gearbox can make pig's fly, maybe they can also teach my bacon to flip itself over.

This is going to release alongside the FFVII Remake.....

But seriously now that I think about it....didn't the old Duke Nukem's have pigs in the game as bad guys? Anyone who's played the game has already figured out what that means but still makes you stop and think, "hmmm....." of course I also added my own thought of.. "Pigs in Jetpacks!?? F---ing Sweet!"


Anyways, with the line up that's coming up this fall? DNF is a long ways off my top ten list for now...

The irony of course was that the cops were pigs.

As a later generation gamer, can't say I'm interested in this.

Only older gamers can wait for this.

Dukey Nuker...sorry ,never heard of it.

They should seriously quit digging into that money pit. After thirteen years, they'd never get a decent return on it.

You see that's the thing, with the rate they are going, I'd be surprised if they've even spent money on this game. So in the end, total profit.

Who is Gearbox?

I think even if Duke did come back he would flop unless you had some pack of geniuses at the helm. You can't pull off the kind of classicness that was Duke 3D in this day and age because so much of what it did is old hat nowadays. Still, I'm a little tired of this hoax staying alive. To quote Duke himself: "Confucius say: Die."

As long as those pigs are flying I guess I should ask the Head cheerleader out again. Hope she hasn't let herself go.

If the demo actually drops, I so hope there's a flying pig in it.

If this game actually releases, I think I'll have to buy it, even if it's not that good. Maybe I can keep bigfoot for a pet too.

_______________,

Well, you had better ordering 55 gallon drums of Vaseline in liquefied form, cuase you're going too sh!tting bricks till at least 2022.

Oh BTW, make sure you order large straws to go with that........

“Duke Nukem Forever,” a video game synonymous with never being released, is finally being released.

The game is being finished by Gearbox Software and will be published by Take-Two Interactive, publisher of the “Grand Theft Auto” series.

The game is being shown to consumers and the press for the first time at a video game convention today.
Gearbox hopes to release the game next year.

Why were/are people so interested in this game in the first place?...serious question. I mean, I remeber this type of game back in the day and I don't recall dieing for another. Did this game even have a story because I don't remember. Just another FPS. I am getting pretty tired of shooting in games nowadays. Even though I don't believe GOWIII had a perfect story, I can play it over and over because it is so different compared to everything else right now. Same goes for Demons Souls. RDR is a good shooter and I was amazed it stuck with me as I am getting tiring of constant gunfights in games. That's why I passed on Mafia II, that and the mediocre reviews. Too much shooting in games nowadays. That is why the only games I will be picking up for the rest of this year are Assassin Creed Brotherhood, GT5 (a given), and Fallout New Vegas (if it is actually good). Clearly Vanguish is not on my list (rental if I feel interested). I will come back to all out killing/shooting when KZ3 releases.

Hardly a rumor now that it has been confirmed to be in development at Gearbox.

It's now a game-in-the-works we have to follow.

I asked myself that same question. I must have deleted and added that s 2 or 3 times but decided that "Worlds" looked better. How about I just call you John from now on?
