Hey, hey guys… Take a guess at who the press release is referring to here: “[Bringing] his signature brand of babe-lovin’, cigar-smoking, beer-chugging and ass-kicking action as he once again saves the Earth and our babes from hordes of invading aliens.”
Not got it yet? Oh, you have…That’s right, Duke Nukem Forever has finally been unequivocally announced by 2K Games and Gearbox Software, giving the much-quoted macho-man of the same name to be unleashed upon the gaming world once again.
Playable right now at this week’s Penny Arcade Expo, president of 2K, Christoph Hartmann, laughs “all great things take time… a lot of time. [Forever] will satisfy our patient, die-hard fans, as well as a new generation of bubble gum-chewing, flat top and shades-wearing bad-asses.” Erm, really!? He continues, “make no mistake about it, Duke Nukem Forever is a testament to the era of when shooters were bodacious and fun.” OK, that we can abide by.
Tongues will remain firmly in drool-covered cheeks when it gets released onto the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC in 2011.
