Hang in there. Lots of power out all along the east coast. Not that it makes it better, but misery loves company, right?

Why the hell is this game still called Duke Nukem Forever? Just admit that it's not the same game that was announced a million years ago and expected to run on 3DFX cards. Say "we scrapped that one," but we have a new one called Duke Nukem Strikes Back or something less lame. Putting out a game with a title that is legendarily vaporware is just bad business.

And does anyone even care about a Duke Nukem game? Consoles have come and gone since he was in a major release.

My slight tweak on the etymology is that originally the remote was a device with a single button. So it was one of many controls on the electronic device. The volume control. The color control. And the control that wasn't located on the box but was on another thingamajig way over there (e.g. "remote"). If you look at something like the Lazy Bones [url=]http://www.electronichouse.com/slideshow/category/3891/656[/url] it makes sense. It's only later when all of the functions are replicated on the remote that they are full-fledged "controllers" of the device.

Thanks for the info, I'm one of the people who had data on the tape. I can always count on Blue for the news I need!

Sounds so much better than it is. I tried one several years ago when they first came out with it and it was noxious.

My guess is that 3DR is chasing the engines in an effort to not look totally dated, but they need to just put the damn thing out with good content. This is, after all, a sequel and there is established interest for it [or why would everyone be posting on this subject?]. Don't worry about Valve and pay attention to Croteam.

Even with Daikatana, people were so fascinated by the history that lots of them wanted it to come out and rock - unfortunately it was a painful piece of steaming crap. But if it hadn't been it would have sold millions.

George, did you really say "we don't want hype"? Ah, memories fade.

CultureShock, I still don't think he owes you the money. It sounds like the Take 2 money went to Infogrames because GB et al had already sold their rights years ago (including the old Duke rights).

My plan is to wait for the game to come out and get reviewed. If it sucks I skip it and if it rocks I buy it. I won't have a hole in my heart either way.

It's doubtful that the judge will take off the court appointed lawyer for some guy from Florida (who isn't licensed in Ohio). It would just waste the taxpayer's money they spent on the first one and the would still have to find local counsel to represent "pscyho fun boy" with JT. If he really had the Ohio Public Defender ready to step in with him, then THEY would be making the request. This jackass just wants to get in the newspaper and the local media has to have some new twist for the Tragic Story of the Moment to keep selling papers.

I had actually forgotten this game existed when I read UserFriendly. Is there any reason in the universe that could possibly explain the delay at this point? Maybe it will be like a mini-series on 10 CDs with over 500 hours of gameplay. And maybe Carmack's Ferrari will make it to the moon.

How could the newspaper think it was real history?!?! The story goes on to suggest celebrating Filipino American History Month by making jack-o-lanterns out of spam!

And as good as he may be, why put the Grinch at #5?!? He was only ever in one cartoon so far as I can recall. And, although memorable, was he that good?

1) The Grinch rocks! And since his one cartoon has been played a zillion times, he could easily make the list.

2) But his popularity and that of Josie and The Pussycats probably have a lot more to do with their recent live action movies than their cartoons (see my previous post about dumbass voters).

Take the average person who answers a TV Guide Poll and ask them about animation (or anything) and get a dumbass answer.

If Tom is a lesser cat than Top Cat, Felix and Josie then this isn't a world worth living in.

I found a much better list here:

There is no way that's him. The dude had to put up a whole website to explain why the picture of Abraham Lincoln doesn't look like Abraham Lincoln. And it's about 3 inches high! Almost 4 million an inch for a dead guy with beady eyes.

The main photo was on Something Awful in the "Cliff Yablonski Hates You" section. Pretty frightening that someone would create a Something Awful link of the day candidate out of it.

...or is it? The more I look at it, the more I think it's some kind of Lowtax related joke. At least I hope so.

I remember thinking she was a babe back when I was, well, a baby. It's funny how people who are eternal "special guest stars" wind up in the nooks and crannies of our minds. Thanks for solving the mystery.
