Mr. JON ST. JOHN (Actor): (as Duke Nukem) What? Did you think I was gone forever?

KELLY: The sequel to the macho hit video game from the '90s is out, finally. "Duke Nukem Forever" is scheduled to hit stores June 14th, and gamers have been waiting a long time for this - 14 years to be exact. Some fans pre-ordered the game back in 1997. Fortunately for them, the video game chain store GameStop says it will honor pre-orders from 1997, provided customers still have the receipt.
