DNF Reveal trailer

"Yes it seems that 3D realms have been doing something other than giving each other piggyback rides for the last 10 years. In a stroke all the anticipation we haven't felt since 1998 returned like a tazer gun to the base of the spine. I just hope that 3D realms understands that if this game doesn't turn out to be history's greatest contribution to human culture and the cure for at least one type of cancer, then I and ever other reviewer on earth are going to saw its bollocks off."
Ben 'Yahtzee' Croshaw, Zero Punctuation (Feb. 2008)

"What if the game gets delayed? You don't want this to become No More Heroes Forever, do you?"
Jeane, No More Heroes

"Duke Nukem Forever sure looks super fun! I can't wait to play it! Always bet on Duke!"
Leo's Younger Self, VG Cats

Gabe (in 1998): Man, if Duke Nukem Forever ever comes out, I will suck, like, a hundred horse dicks. In a row.
(one Gilligan Cut later to 2010)
Gabe: No. No, no, no.
Tycho: Well, these horse dicks aren't gonna suck themselves.

Tycho: *Faux-Outrage* Did you know there's a mode in Duke Nukem where you slap a woman's bottom!?
Gabe: *Bored* Did you know there's a mode in Call of Duty where you murder, like, a million people? It's called Call of Duty.

Duke (Duke!) You used to be cool
But you gotta make your mind up if you're modern or old school
Duke (Duke!) You used to be cool
Learn to kick ass again and get rid of that lame two weapon rule
And then the world might not be so cruel...

"The folks at 3D Realms are going to be happy we're printing this. They'll say that it's simply a testament to the character's popularity, and after all this time, that people are STILL so concerned with the next Duke Nukem title. They may well be right. But there's a line — let's call it the "Daikatana Line" — where the general public opinion goes from amused to frustrated. We've crossed that line, I think, and the only way to recover from it is for the game to deliver an absolutely unheralded and unparalleled gaming experience. It has to make Half-Life 2 look outdatednote ."

"I did an interview with George Broussard when I was 17 and in high school, and I asked him about Duke Nukem Forever then. I'm 23 now."
