I don't understand the big deal about Duke Nukem. Never have. Duke Nukem 3D was a fun-but-average shooter with tits and goofiness. Completely forgettable.
Why does anyone care so much about a sequel to an average game? Not just now when it's been a joke headline for years, but in the first place, when DNF was first supposed to be coming out, that was still my reaction then: "Okay, but who cares?"
Sidenote: I find it funny that a thread on another forum also posted about DNF's posted release date with its subject as "Hail to the King, baby." At least four people responded to the thread upset that it wasn't posting about a new Evil Dead game.
This is why I don't understand the big deal about Duke Nukem games: anything people found funny in them? Yeah, it came from somewhere else.
