God I hope this rumor is true.
According to Kotaku, Gearbox might have taken up the mantle that 3D Realms and George Broussard left behind. They were supposed to put out their own Duke Nukem game a few years back, called "Duke Nukem: Begins" or something to that effect, but never actually got around to doing it. Now that 3D Realms has gone down in flames, the IP for Duke Nukem - along with all of the "work" that was put into the game - is out there somewhere. All I know is, I still want to play it.
"But why?" you might be asking. "Why would you want to play a game that has taken over a decade to just fizzle out with the last flame on the last dollar bill of 3DR?" And the answer, like every great question, is a simple one.
Because it will either be absolutely awesome, or the biggest letdown in gaming HISTORY. And I'm willing to take that chance.
I don't really have anything specific to add to that, just... doesn't THIS make you want to play?
(Also, a message to whoever does OFFICIALLY get to work on this... if anyone... need a hand with anything? I'll offer my insight and ideas!)
