The Fall of Duke Nukem Games 24 DEC 2009

Wired Magazine is running a simply stunning article that details the demise of 3D Realms and its legendary failure to produce that which should have been Duke Nukem Forever, probably the last ten year’s greatest piece of vaporware ever promised.

For those of you who have never heard of Duke Nukem, ignore the link below, but to those of you who still fondly recall the hyper-masculine, egotistical, chauvinist, machismo-filled, womanizing, cigar-chomping anti-hero that stuffed dollars down strippers’ panties and shot up pigs dressed in police uniforms, then what comes below is simply a must, must read!

Fantastically detailed and researched, this is an article that will be sure to bring a tear to your eye as you realise just how poor Duke ended up like he did! :(
