Duke Nukem Forever Teaser Leaves Us Unimpressed

When we last played the Duke Nukem series, it ran exclusively on German Enigma machines, which means that unless this teaser trailer showed graphics so far ahead of its league that it makes Crysis look like stick figure drawings, there's no way that anybody will be impressed. It's not that the graphics are horrible, but we've seen similar from Gears of War—and that was last year. At least the voice actor and dialogue are still the same, which means 15-year-old Jason would love it.

We're not sure what engine this is using (Wikipedia says it uses Unreal 2.0), but whatever it is, it's been changed a bunch of times, including the Unreal 1 engine for a time. Did you know that the top of the line gaming PC back when it was supposed to be released was a Pentium II? And it probably would have run on an NVIDIA TNT? Jeez. [Shacknews]
