Julefrokost writes "While we're waiting patiently on Forever, there's some real news in the Duke Nukem realm. Ars Technica has a story about a fan-made Duke 3D project on Unreal Engine 3. There's an awesome demo video up on YouTube. Created by hardcore fan Frederick 'fresch' Schreiber, we can hopefully expect to see an upgraded Duke 3D in the near future." The article also notes, "Gearbox ultimately decided to support the project, and gave Schreiber a personal, non-commercial license to Duke Nukem 3D. He can't sell the work or profit from it directly, but he can use the characters and design of the game without fear of being shut down."

That's actually strange to me.

I've not bought a new game for my Wii since February due to the lack of interesting games, and it's practically been collecting dust.

Since then I've picked up Crackdown, Command and Conquer 3, Dirt, Forza Motorsport 2, and Overlord for my 360. And heck, that doesn't even count my playing of games that came out in 2006.

The life of a repo man is always intense.
