Obama signs bailout for 3D Realms

All out of bubblegum, but flush with tax payer cash and ready to kick ass.

In a small White House ceremony this morning, President Barak Obama signed into law Software Development Infinite Life Cycle Funding Relief Program (SDILCFRP), providing $20 billion of tax payer dollars for struggling developer 3D Realms.

"It is important that we look toward long-term employment considerations in the United States, and this law will employ dozens for at least two decades of further development on Duke Nukem Forever," the President said in brief remarks. "In a world where the process is clearly more important than the goal, we must make sure that people are rewarded just for being, and not punished for failing to produce."

Under terms of the new law, 3D Realms will be required to make changes to game content to be consistent with administration policies and initiatives.

3D Realm's flagship game, Duke Nukem Forever, will be renamed to Duke Nuke for Change, and its star character will undergo a make-over to "better represent America to the world," according to UN Ambassador Susan Rice.

"It is no wonder that this game failed. Duke Nukem is the arch-typical right-wing extremist, carrying guns everywhere and waving the American flag. He bears no social obligation and leaves a trail of destruction wherever he goes," Rice said.

Nukem will now carry the UN banner throughout the game, reading Miranda rights to the game's enemies and carrying injured aliens to free healthcare facilities throughout the urban areas that represent the game's setting.

Part of Duke Nukem's change will be disarming the charismatic character, with his guns being replaced with a ballpoint pen from ACORN and a voter registration clipboard. Nukem's new goal will be to enlighten extraterrestrial enemies to register to vote and participate in the political process, a possible indication of Obama's support of alien voter rights in the US.

In addition, the infamous swine-shaped law enforcement agents will be removed from the game entirely, so as to not offend Muslims who Obama hopes will become consumers of the software title, once completed. Instead, all enemies will be modeled to appear as Rush Limbaugh.

"If Duke is successful in registering them to vote, he will gain points and the enemy will transform into an attractive, young, cool hipster wearing hemp clothing and carrying the latest iPhone," according to DNF's new project manager, Rahm Emmanuel. "However, if Nukem fails to register the enemy, their kidneys will immediately fail and they will die."

Republicans immediately released a statement blasting the program as a waste of tax payer dollars, and promised to slow the funding by placing George Broussard in charge of all SDILCFRP operations.

Re: Obama signs bailout for 3D Realms
I visit 3DR's site once or twice a year to see if Hell has frozen over with DNF. I'm disturbed but not surprised to hear of the problems. I wondered who would finance the DNF team for a dozen years with no product to sell to begin with.

It is my hope that the good people who have worked on this effort land on their feet, hopefully to continue this project somewhere/somehow. That this product has failed to make it to market should be a textbook case of bad management to be tought in econ classes for decades to come. DNF is a goldmine waiting to happen, even in this economy.

Whatever obsessive-compulsive twitch has held this product from release over these years needs to be removed and under some sort of new management and/or company the creative minds need to be set to task. Let that mutha fly, boys. Every console/PC out there has an Interweb connection, fix it post-release.

Godspeed to you all.

I funny to read this thread from Australia here. Whats more funny for me is to see even in jokes some Americans cant get over the fact that ACORN had little or perhaps no impact on the huge margin by which Obama won on that old dying man and still drags that name here and there.
Anyway it would have been nice if Obama actually did something, but I guess George's track record of success and arrogance will most probably ensure he will stay out of it. Bet on Duke yes, bet on George ?! Nah .

WOW. I mean, really.

The National Enquirer is a magazine (tabloid) devoted to crazy claims and to outrageous insinuations about celebrities and politicians. I was saying that anyone who believes in the birth certificate rumors is a few screws short of a tool box.

edit: I see my conversation with RB has been deleted and couldn't agree more: this isnt the place. I apologize for dragging it out.

Well isn't it obvious, Razorback? The news media, the entertainment business, the education system, most of history itself, and now the entire internet has a liberal bias. As we speak Obama's secret staff of hackers are working away to make sure of it.


Very funny post, Off A Cough. Don't know if it was an original by you or just a generator where you insert the names and companies.

Well Defernet, the topic has Obama in it, so I don't see how either of us derailed the thread. Also I don't think the other posters have anything better to do, they are here after all!

I missed what all was said and moderated but if I had to guess maybe something partially to do with your ignorant and racially charged joke. (Obama - b + s = Osama.......yawn.)

I'm guessing general bigotry (whatever your views may be) is less of an issue than throwing around comments that have the potential to or are going to start a flame war.

At least the OP was funny and somewhat original, but in certain cases there's a very fine line between being funny and slinging some bs that has the potential to offend someone. Part of growing up is learning the difference, and being able to communicate on a public forum where people with diverse backgrounds and views congregate while being sensitive to that fact.

Your completely wrong ADRIAN, and who are you to determine the fine line anyway? So STFU! We had stopped the conversation and now you want to chime in with your lack of wit. I wish I could say what I really think!

Feel free to PM me with what you really think, and I'll be sure not to give a d*mn. I wasn't trying to be witty.

PS - The credentials needed for determining where that line lays are:

* A dash of common sense
* 1 Tbsp of taste
* 1 cup of moderately intelligent humor (to taste)

Mix well, bake for 30 minutes at 400 degrees

I haven't, and your implying that someone HAS to have thought that way is very disturbing. Hope you never have children that become terminally ill.
