New Duke Nukem Forever history trailer recounts Duke's 3D transition

The first Duke Nukem Forever "History of a Legend" trailer filled us in on the series' inception and early 2D entries, and now Gearbox has released the second episode, which turns the clock forward to the big polygonal transition of Duke Nukem 3D. Check it out, because after all these years, a refresher course on what makes Duke such an important guy is well-needed, especially for our younger readers. Only not too young. Rated 'M' and all that...

Duke Nukem Forever is out June 14 in North America, and June 10 everywhere else. It's been a loooong time. That was a Portal 2 reference. Why did I insert a Portal 2 reference into a Duke Nukem article? Was it even clear that it was meant to be a reference before I told you it was? So many questions, but too few behind-the-scenes trailers to answer them all. Well, at least you have this one.

    Almost all the guys in that video have died at least once. Except John St. John. Awwwwww yeah.

    I felt like this was a video of a bunch of Dan Amrich's discussions about the video game industry with cocaine and hot tubs. ^^

    So next time we get the history of DNF? They should just make a documentary about the development of that game. I'm interested enough as to why it took 14 years to make that I'd actually watch it.

    I thought it was a Portal 2 reference, but I also thought I played it too much and was seeing things (I literally quote GLaDOS all the time without thinking about it). When you confirmed it, I was reassured I'm not going crazy. Captcha: "case) adjourni" Duke must have killed the judge in the middle of the sentence.

    No mention of Ken Silverman, creator of the Build 3D engine used to power "Duke Nukem 3D?" Weird.
