PNG Daily 5/19/2009: The Duke Will Live Forever!


That’s right PNG’ers, The Duke lives! Well, at least 3d Realms isn’t actually closed.  Shacknews has a press release up from the legally embattled company clearing the air. Looks like the Duke Nukem Forever team was let go but the company still exists and owns the rights to the Duke Nukem IP. It is now (you can start giggling now Jim) pretty much certain that Duke Nukem Forever will not see the light of day as Take Two owns the publishing rights. Since Take Two is suing 3D Realms, you can pretty much assume that they’re going to take their ball and go home.

Wizards of the Coast gouging you at the 4E and Fallout DLC for everyone news after the jump!

Wizards gets payd!

So Wizards announced a change to the pricing structure for D&D Insider to reflect the increased value and and content.  The content they’re speaking of?  They are releasing bits and pieces of the newly announced Player’s Handbook 3 each month up until it’s release in March 2010.  I tried to be kind about 4th Edition despite the continual hate of my cohorts towards the edition, but this is the last straw.  It’s not so much the charging for D&D insider per month, because you get content from the now online Dragon and Dungeon magazines, but this edition is just now turning a year old in June and you’re releasing a 3rd players handbook?  This edition of Dungeons and Dragons has turned into the biggest cash grab and I’m ashamed to have stood up for it.

PS3 owners, prepare to have your mind blown!



Per Shacknews, Bethesda announced 2 more DLC packs for Fallout 3 today and gave some dates on all previous DLC for the PS3.  Point Lookout will arrive in June for Xbox 360 and PC followed by Mothership Zeta in July.  PS3 owners will see a monthly staggered release of the old content starting in June with the new content following after that.
