Hail to the king, BABY!

Perhaps the most storied video game sequel of all time is actually going to come out!  I was hoping 3DRealms would sell the code they'd developed to date to somebody so the game would actually see the light of day.

Hell of a win for PAX, getting the official announcement.

We've heard and seen this before. I won't believe it until I'm holding the box in my hands at game stop.

It's sure to be as good a game as Chinese Democracy was an album.

IGN's demo review

Choice quote:

Quote
The Gearbox boss also related his wife's insistence that he take up Duke's cause and that if he succeeded in making it happen, she'd give him – and this a direct quote – a "Chilean Miner." She would "go down the shaft and stay 'til Christmas."

Do I really want to ask what a "Chilean Miner" is????

That's funny...  I love when anything like a Cleveland Steamer comes up.  Haven't heard a new one in ages.

Absolutely not shocked by that.  I'm amazed it even got 2/5.  This thing has been an epic failure before it even hit the store.

On the commercials the graphics looked like ****.

In the realm of Bioshock, Call of Duty, etc...  You'd better bring your a-game or you're really not going to stand a chance.
