Happy New Year!

Wow... what can I say. 2007 was one hell of a great year for video games. There were so many games to choose from, over all consoles(mostly) and PC. There was just so many games that I could barely keep up with them all. So many great games and so little time to play them all. Only if there were more hours in the day, like 48 or 72(pipe dream, haha).

There was BioShock, Halo 3, Mass Effect, Super Mario Galaxy, Unreal Tournament III, Crysis, Call of Duty 4, Guitar Hero III, Rock Band, Crackdown and so many, many more. If I listed them all, it'd go on forever(haha).

Happy New Year everyone, and hopefully 2008 will be as great of a year for video games as 2007 was!

See ya all in '08!

Duke Nukem Forever Teaser Trailer We've All Been Waiting 6 Years For...

And here it is in all it's "foreverness"(sorry couldn't find any other word, haha) glory:

I know this is all CGI and not actual gameplay footage, but from the scenes of clips playing throughout the teaser, the game looks mighty fine, definitely a lot better looking than the previous ones shown 6-10 years ago.

Overall, I like the new look of Duke Nukem and I think after taking "forever" to actually complete it and get it out to store shelves, I think the game will be awesome. Sure, that's only speculated, as I obviously haven't even played the game yet and probably won't play it anytime soon, but hopefully it'll be awesome. Guess we'll see.

Duke Nukem Forever Teaser Trailer...And The World Stood Still...

Duke Nukem Forever. Yes, that's right, the game that's been in development longer than any other game in history. So I find out from DIGG that there will be a Duke Nukem Forever Teaser Trailer being released tomorrow. So I say to myself, "OMG! WOW!"... and a whole lot more, but need not be repeated here.

The game's been in development for so long no one knows what to expect from 3D Realms anymore.

If you want an idea as to what actually happened from Apr. 25, 1997(The day DNF was first announced) to now(Dec. 18, 2007), take a look here(you'll be amazed).

Here's a link to a screenshot taken from the Duke Nukem Forever Teaser Trailer. I'd post it up above, but I'd rather not be sued at this time of the year. But if I were sued for posting the image, the case would be closed before Duke Nukem Forever was released(as sad as that is).

I've been a huge fan of Duke Nukem 3D ever since I got my hands on the game and as soon as I heard back in Apr. 1997 that a new Duke Nukem game was in development, I ran to my local "whatever game store at the time" and pre-ordered it(even though that was a bit early... okay, WAY early). I just wished I still had that receipt. Oh well, gone now probably.

I just thought of something, maybe they planned this own thing from the get go. Coincidently the game is named Duke Nukem "Forever" and who would have known the game would take "Forever" to be released. So maybe it was a plan all along, to build up hype over 10 years.

All I know is when they do eventually release Duke Nukem Forever, the game BETTER be good. At least that's what we all hope, because after all, it's taking them FOREVER to get the game released.
