Duke Nukem Forever

It’s been a decade and Duke Nukem Forever truly lives up to its name.

Duke Nukem Forever was announced in 1997. After several game engine changes and delays, a second trailer has finally been released. I graduated high school, finished college, finished my masters and am knee deep into my career. Finally, I MIGHT get to enjoy Duke Nukem Forever for the PC before I have grand children.
