2-1-2011 Duke Nukem will be here and now is available for preorder on Gamestop and Amazon right now. is there any word on a special edtion???? Now I can start counting the days till its here 135 days. finally the light at the end of the tunnel. Now what about Prey 2?

I do not think that Gearbox cell shading the Nukem franchise would create an issue. Looking back at Borderlands the shading was annoying but frankly the game play and storyboard more than made up for the cheesy character inlays and don't forge that they are still releasing content patches for the engine so in my opinion it can't be a total loss. The great thing about Gearbox and the acquisition of the Nukem is that idea that company who had a designated demographic went ahead and purchased a franchise in hopes of revitalizing its image and bringing those kicks of doom into our living rooms in the near future. Gearbox, even if you guys drop the ball on this one I salute you for showing some concern for consumers. Now don't make me eat those words!

Duke was a self parodying 90's meathead action hero with all the dimensionality of a piece of paper.  As Gaming Culture, haven't we moved past this point already? I'd say 8 years too late.

Too bad Brothers in Arms was completely broken, but Borderlands WAS awesome... Oh wait, they ruined that too, nevermind... They will probably do the same with game game at the last minute - break the FPS mechanics and make it a child friendly by cell shading it.

Totally agree, if Borderlands looked "normal" it would easily be in my all-time top-ten, but, just for how it looks...meh

I'm prone to believe Gearbox so I am excited about this and feel good about my decision.

Duke Nukem Whatever.

Time has passed this game by. I'm tired of all the "it's coming out/it's not coming out" news over the last 13 years. If and when I do see the retail game box sitting on a store shelf I'll pause and say to myself "Oh, it finally made it. That's nice." and then move on past it to choose a game more deserving of my money.

This will be postmortem Duke, not sure if that's a good idea but Gearbox will bring Half Life 2 engine. Without 3D Realms logo at the start, i just hope that Gearbox know what's he doing and that this game will not be just a Need for Cash: Armored Truck Edition, because damn you otherwise.

James Cameron filed a lawsuit against every single avatar on the internet. They should all be removed in the coming weeks.

gold farmers here?!?!?  lol.  report! report!  Anyway, I'll never play Duke Nuke in spite of the pain and anguish this release has caused the true fans over the years.  So release it!  I don't care anymore.  The same way I feel about HL3 VALVE!

They are going to laugh at all of us as they announce a release date sometime in 2015... sigh.  This is super exciting, but I will believe it when I have downloaded it on Steam and am playing.  Until then it is just a dream
