Well, movies take "4ever" to make
What has probably been one of the longest running jokes in the industry has now been revived as a fan-made trailer, looking to become a movie. Yes, weâ€™re talking about the Duke Nukem saga, which can easily be called a saga in real life as well, what with all the weâ€™re-almost-theres and when-its-dones weâ€™ve heard ever since it was announced in 1997.
We were just about to get cracking on our arsenal of jokes, but alas, a quick review of 3DRealmsâ€™ site confirmed that we shouldnâ€™t bother. The site reads:â€And yes, we know the game has taken a long time. There's no possible joke you could make about the game's development time that we haven't already heard. â€. Well, as one smart man once said, why does it have to be a joke? How about a riddle? Come to think of it, you canâ€™t put a living riddle into a linguistic riddle, so weâ€™ll just drop it.
The trailer, which shows a â€œbabeâ€ running away from the mighty Pig-Cop was developed by a Finnish studio HMC. Weâ€™re not sure whether these guys will ever manage to actually the movie, especially knowing that a similar situation with Zelda fan-made movie was drawn to a close by Nintendoâ€™s orders. Still, itâ€™s a nice and easy to digest trailer, which still features the original Megadeth soundtrack â€“ so a great one to get your hopes up in the 2010. And be sure to check out the ending - classic Duke indeed.
