Duke Nukem to be forever remembered

The video game DUKE NUKEM, the best video game of all times, got a reportage in the Polish newspaper "METRO". However the news were not so good. The company who developed the game, 3D Realms, went bankrupt and no longer exists. Another company holds the copyright for Duke Nukem character which also didn't mention any further move on it.

Duke Nukem had his golden age when the DUKE NUKEM 3D was released, in 1994. First version of the game based on 1st-person 3d games, as well as "Doom", "Wolfstein 3D", "Heretic"... Duke had unique personality of a die-hard american hero who had to protect earth from the aliens who invaded to make a mess and "steal" the hot chicks from our planet for bizarre experiments.

Who didn't enjoy the way how Duke use to express himself over the anger he had on the aliens? And memorable phrases that made it more than a game, but a lifestyle!

"Nobody steals our chicks... and lives!"
"I'm Duke Nukem and I'm coming to get the rest of you, alien bastards!"
"Your face, your ass... what's the difference?"
"Let god sort them out."
"Damn, that's the second time those alien bastards screwed my ride!"
"It's time to kick asses and chew bubble gum... but I'm all out of gum!"

And my favourite one:

"Shake it babe, do you wanna dance?"

Long life, Duke Nukem.
