Apparently Take Two still own the rights to Duke Nukem Never.

Crying shame 3D Realms have gone, but maybe they should have brought Duke Nukem out quicker and they would still be alive today.

Geez, I hope the guys get picked up by another company. Hate for them to lose jobs. Duke Nukem is a great game, and the character is awesome:terminator: Real shame :(

Free Radical were lucky, I believe they were bought up by a bigger company.

Yep Crytek bought free radical out, Crytek is ofcourse the developer of the Cry engine that ran Farcry and the current engine was used for Crysis.

DNF or Duke Nuke Whenever as we call it is never coming... And Take Two owns the rights to DISTRIBUTE the game.

Also of note. Laser trip mines were great but proximity mines were so much better, especially in Stack on Goldeneye. And finally there's the Bottlecap mines in Fallout 3.

Just saying

I thought Id Software developed wolfenstein and or for sure return to castle wolfenstein
(with splash damage: wolfenstein: enemy territory)

but shame....really shame because they said at least a month ago they said that they reached a milestone on the game development.

oh well
HAIL TO THE KING BABY :terminator:
sorry had to do it :)
