The recent rapture stir may have left its biggest advocate with a Rocky sized helping of egg on his face, but that's because he failed to take one thing into account: the world can't end until Duke Nukem Forever comes out. Now, though, it seems that Duke's finally ready to emerge from his dressing room and clear the way for zombies, robots, manticores, or whatever else is planning to swiftly and brutally remove us from this earth. That's right. No doubting it this time. Duke Nukem Forever is 100 percent complete. It's gone gold.
"Duke Nukem Forever is the game that was once thought to be unshippable, and yet here we are, on the precipice of history,” said 2K president Christoph Hartmann in a press release. “Today marks an amazing day in the annals of gaming lore, the day where the legend of Duke Nukem Forever is finally complete and it takes that final step towards becoming a reality.”
Now all that's left is a short (nearly non-existent, in Duke Time) wait until June 10, and then you'll be able to kick ass and creatively allude to gum even though the world said you'd never be able to. It's quite inspirational, really. So then, final roll call: The King's returning. Will you be rolling out the dollar-shaped welcome mat?
