Duke Nukem Forever Features
Duke Nukem Forever. For a long while, many thought this game would never come. Constantly the butt of jokes, people could only look on as the game was delayed and delayed, until finally 3D realms shut its doors entirely. Thankfully, Gearbox Software stepped in to save the day, and so we talk to Vice President Steve Gibson about The Duke, and what it took to save him.
Preview: With just a month to go before the release of the most infamous name in gaming, we take a multiplayer hands-on with shrink rays, Devastators and babes.

Duke is dead, long live The Duke. I bet for many of you, you can remember where you were on May 8th 2009 when 3D Realms announced it was officially closing its doors. With nearly all the staff fired, development formally halted, and no hope in sight, it felt very much like the death of a game that had been suffering for over a decade.
