Gearbox lawsuit puts Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction in holding pattern

3D Realms bought by Interceptor Entertainment part-owner

It's never simple with 3D Realms. The Duke Nukem creator is current being sued by Gearbox Software, who bought the musclebound chucklehead's IP as it finished Duke Nukem Forever, over supposedly trying to make a new Duke game with Rise of the Triad remaker Interceptor Entertainment. 3DR simply has no right to, Gearbox says. But oh, another wrinkle. 3D Realms has now been bought by an investment firm which part-owns Interceptor.

3D Realms suing Gearbox over Duke Nukem Forever royalties

It seemed the Duke Nukem Forever saga was finally over, released and sunk without a trace, but oh no, not quite. Creator 3D Realms has filed a lawsuit against Gearbox Software--the developer which bought DNF after 3DR failed then finished the game--claiming that the Borderlands developer hasn't paid everything it owes, and is blocking an audit to find quite how much that is.

Shadow Warrior is free on Steam

If you're not a PC gamer of advanced years, the fuss about the new Shadow Warrior may be a mystery to you. To get newcomers all jazzed up about it and, ah, motivated by an unfortunate security hole, publisher Devolver Digital is giving away 3D Realms' original 1997 FPS for free forever on Steam.

Shadow Warrior trailer reveals 'reimagining'

The announcement of Shadow Warrior was a pretty low-key affair, really just a teaser site and a short blurb. Today's the big day Hard Reset developer Flying Wild Hog and publisher Devolver Digital finally lifted the wraps off their "total reimagining" of 3D Realms' classic FPS of the same name and, well, they don't reveal much but it's certainly looking pretty.
