I've lost count of how many times Duke Nukem Forever has been given a release date, but it seems that Gearbox Software feel that May 6th (or the 3rd for America) is when it's really coming. For real.
Announced overnight in a press release
from Gearbox and backed up with an epic trailer, Duke's coming back after 14 years of being the longest running joke in videogaming and the crowned king of Vapourware titles.
Will it be any good? Are we looking at Daikatana 2.0?
Either way, the trailer has lots (and I mean lots) of T&A, drinking, things being blown up and Duke talking smack the whole way through.
