Shakedown 2.0?

This is my second test blog where you'll find news and opinions on the latest happenings surrounding the internet, technology, entertainment, et. al.
Why the name? "Shakedown" is a period of testing or trial journey undergone by a ship, plane or other craft before declared operational. 2.0 simply because it's my second trial blog [see the first blog here]

Hey, look! It's the Duke!

Are you an old school pc gamer? If you're like me who grew up with Doom (shareware will do).. you've probably played or at least heard of Duke Nukem, originally a platform game but became popular with it's first person shooter - Duke Nukem 3D (1996). It was a big hit during that time and a controversial one too coz it's one of the early pc games that was alleged of promoting pornography and violent murders, but also notable for its often crude humor.

In 1997, maker 3D Realms announced a sequel called Duke Nukem Forever, but stating it will be released "when it's done." Now 2007, ten years past, and after receiving a couple of vaporware awards.. the game seems to be pretty dead. NOT! Recently news and even videos surfaced on the net showing DNF. here's the teaser video:

Now what do you think about this one? Will Forever really be out soon? or Forever Delayed once again. If it ever comes out, do you think it can still compete with the rest of new shooters out there? It did stand out amongst hundreds of Doom clones a decade ago.. so lets just probably wait until it's already on the store shelves.
