Gaming's oldest preorder may go unfulfilled

by Mike Smith

Patience might not always be a virtue.
Will this gamer ever be collecting the pre-order he placed in 2001?

Answer: probably not. His $10 deposit was placed on Duke Nukem Forever, a first-person shooter that, after being in continuous development for an unprecedented 12 years, was suddenly canceled yesterday.

Duke Nukem, a once-iconic blond-haired all-American action hero, with a fondness for catchphrases like "It's time to kick *** and chew bubblegum, and I'm all out of gum," was the star of a hit string of games in the 1990s. His creators, 3D Realms, used him to help pioneer the first-person shooter genre, paving the way for modern hits like Halo and Call of Duty...

Ahh... Duke Nukem.  What a wondrous, explosive, stress-relieving game.  However, I can't decided which I enjoyed better: The Duke or Turok.

...Of course, Perfect Dark beat them both senseless.

Thanks for the nostalgia!

Looks like it is still an available store. Pretty darn cool if you ask me.

Duke Nukem Forever is vapor ware. I think it will be released eventually............
