Joe Covers 20th Anniversary of Duke II

duke2_20th.pngJoe Siegler, former 3D Realms employee, reflects on the 20th anniversary of original Apogee games Duke Nukem II and Blake Stone.  It's worth a read!
 
It’s December 3rd, 2013.   That means that 20 years ago, it was December 3rd, 1993.   What is the big deal with that?  Well, a company I worked for released two new games on that date.  “Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold”, and “Duke Nukem II”.   That’s right, Apogee (my Apogee, not the current one – from here referred to as just “Apogee”) put out a couple of new games that day.   If I was still at my former job, this is the kind of piece I’d write for the website.  But I’m not there anymore, and I didn’t want the dates to pass unremarked.  So here we go.  A few thoughts from me on these two titles.
