Hell Has Frozen Over: Duke Nukem Forever Is Golden
Oh man...I've been waiting for 12 years to say this- Duke Nukem Forever has gone gold.
Gearbox Software has announced that the long, long-awaited game is officially coming; that June 14 (June 10 internationally) date is now written in stone. A demo will also hit the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live service on June 3, but if you intend to play it, you'll have to be a member of the DNF Forever First Access Club. You're in if you've purchased a copy of the Game of the Year Edition of Borderlands, or if you've pre-ordered the hotly anticipated game from participating retailers (GameStop, Amazon, EB Canada, etc.). Just as a frame of reference, the game in question was first announced in 1997 and went on to redefine the term "vaporware." In 1997, the first PlayStation had only been out for two years, we had yet to see Half-Life, and I was a freshman/sophomore in college. ...shut up.
But the wait is almost over. And to celebrate, watch that hilarious Return of the King trailer, and don't forget about that awesome YouTube video by Swedish director Paul J. Helin. Hail to the king, baby!
