Duke Nukem: Was Going Gold On April 1st

There was a whole lot of April Comedicosity yesterday, but Variety reported on one thing which - if it happened - could have re-justified the whole sorry festival's sorry reputation. Ex-Take Two Producer Jason Bergman reported that, on their schedule, April 1st 2010 was the day they were planning to announce Duke Nukem Forever had gone gold - and later confirmed it wasn't a joke. Putting aside the obvious question mark whether 3D Realms could actually hit a date, imaging how that would have played out, with the argument and counter-argument of whether it was 4 Realzzzz does put a smile on my face. A shame.
