Default Duke Nukem preorder!

Any of you see this article on yahoo the other day? It was on their main page and though it was quite amusing.

http://videogames.yahoo.com/events/p...filled/1312328

"Ten years ago, Duke Nukem Forever was expected to become just as big a hit as those did. But constant delays -- the game's release date was originally intended to be in 1998 -- caused it to become something of a running joke, topping Wired magazine's annual Vaporware Awards list for seven years out of eight.

Almost unbelievably, the 3D Realms team apparently continued constant work on the game, releasing occasional teaser-style screenshots and trailers, until the company abruptly ran out of money and folded yesterday with what we imagine to be the loss of numerous jobs."
Got some real winners for managers don't they... now 90% of the gaming world can finally say "TOLD YA SO!"

Didn't some dev that left 3D Realms claim the entire game was a con job for investor cash? I seem to recall something about that.

That was meant as a joke... The real reason is plain old incompetence and bad decision making, -> reason it was never completed, the reason they closed doors...
