Duke Nukem Forever Someday
Today brings some rather funny news; we were mentioned in today's FoxTrot comic strip. In this entry, Bill mentions Duke Nukem Forever as a reason for one of the characters (Jason) to buy an iFruit (the FoxTrot nickname for one of the new Macs that runs Windows). As usual, the toon is darn funny.

Thanks again to Bill for the mention! You can read more info about FoxTrot either at it's official site here, or over at Wikipedia.

I liked the overall point of the comic rather than the mention of DNF though...

Awesome. I love the pop culture references in that series. The DNF reference is funnier the more of a nerd you are.

Most people are probably sitting there going..."What's 'Duke Nukem Forever'? Are they making a new Duke game?" Then they google it and end up here. That's what I did.

Re: Duke Nukem Forever Someday
2 years ago they also had Jason joke about whether he was going to be old enough to play Doom 3 when it came out (making Amend an equal-opportunity offender, and a double-joke in how it pokes fun of how most comic strip characters don't age.)

I had the opposite reaction:
What is it about this time. It is probably a joke again.

Third, actually, although this is the first time Duke Nukem Forever was mentioned by name. The other times were June 1, 1997 and Jan 9, 1998.

I also updated the story on our main webpage with an update containing an email from Bill Amend to Charlie Wiederhold (Bill said it was OK for me to publish that). (Link) Bill also emailed me in response to my telling him the strip was funny, but Charlie's was a better reply.

As for the remark about the characters in FoxTrot not aging, you should read the Wikipedia entry for FoxTrot. That issue is specifically discussed (in the "Passage of Time" section).
