12 years of development screams of gross incompetance.  How many game engines have come out in that time?  I mean, we have seen two or three Unreal engines in that time and folks really thing DNF will be worth a crap?

... for the publishing rights, not to 3D realms for development. Anyways, I don't think there is a case where a publisher successfully exploits and steals IP from an independent self funded developer in court. This is going to backfire. What is left of 3D realms is going to counter sue, and the result will be more than enough funds (far more than the relatively puny amount of 5 million 3DRealms requested) to finish the game.
Always bet on Duke.

You can have your recession. I'm not participating.

If Take-Two would have paid the 12 million $ you would get Duke Nukem forever looks like Take-Two killed D.N.F. forever.

Just finish it, from the material that has been released lately the game looked good and is worth finishing it off. Forget the b*@#$H*T and make the game.

I've read more about this game in the 2 weeks since it's been canceled than I did the 12 years it was in development. I hope Take-Two gets the rights, finishes it and releases one of the best games ever. It seems almost fitting at this point.
