Re: the first words that came out of your mouth
mine was 'meh'

But I still was a bit disappointed, I wanted to see it someday... but just had waited for so long that I almost expected never to see it anyway.. so wasn't too surprised.

And when I heard it is not canceled and production is still somehow slowly ticking away.. I also said 'meh'.

Sorry for the boring answers, but it's been that long now, does anything really surprise or effect us too much?

My first thoughts were Steve's. At first I didn't believe it. Once it was confirmed, I was a bit shocked but got over it quickly.

Then I saw the leaked footage.

Oh, come on. At least 90% of people haven't thought about anything other than DNF. At first.

Anyway. To answer the question. I remember me smiling the moment I saw the news. No, I wasn't happy or something. For me it was damn ironic after all those years. That's why I've smiled. Also, I had just woke up before that.

I don't think I said anything. I just got generally numb and spent the first couple of days thinking that it would all turn out to be a joke to create hype for the actual release.

At first I thought... No, it can't be! It's gotta be a joke. Then I realized it was a joke, on all us that waited around for years. Then I thought what Sam Kinison might say about this>>>> No, NO, NOOOOOO!

Some of you might remember Sam?

I didn't say much, actually nothing. Went to sleep woke up next morning. When I went to sleep, it felt more like a elaborate joke, but the next day showed that wasn't the case.

Re: the first words that came out of your mouth
I didn't say anything, but my thoughts were mostly on 3dr shutting down and thinking if it was for real or not. Then finding out it was true later on, I thought about DNF and the first thing that came to mind was 'I guess I can hold off getting a new computer for a while.' Then played DN3D!

I thought the same way, but my first sentence was "Not suprised, they haven't released a game in 13+ years".

DNF=DID NOT FINISH

P.S.
The only part that suprised me was how long they lasted off the money they made with Duke 3D.

Revenues from Duke3D weren't the ONLY money 3DRealms had. They also gained money from the console Duke games, Max Payne 1, Prey and the sale of the Max Payne IP between Max Payne 1 and 2.

"What the f***?!?!?!" in Harold and Kumar: Escape from Guantanamo Bay style pitch and tone (from the first scene of the movie), repeated around 30 times over the course of about 5 hours as I read the news and scoured the net for every piece of news available on the topic.
