Duke. Many found memories there. Even before the "Monster 3D" accelerators came out, it was just plain old fun. I liked all the "Build" engine games. John St. John's voice acting brought some absurd attitude to the characters. Lo Wang was a riot: Shadow Warrior "Who Want-a Some Wang?" But then,... I waited so long for DNF.... I sank into a deep pit of depression from which I never quite emerged..... (But I played a lot of CounterStrike while I was waiting)
What YOU fail to notice is that agnickolov is still correct. Wolfenstein 3D was developed by id software. The article says it was DEVELOPED by 3D Realms, and it most certainly wasn't. Developed is not the same thing as published or distributed.
As for Duke Nukem, we'll probably another half baked money grab of a horrid game that didn't deserve the title of Duke Nukem is released in a slap dash push worthy of EA or Ubisoft.
$19.99 is a small price to pay to support their venture.
I paid up and DLed the Anthology 510 MB file with the launcher all run great with the included DOSBOX.
You can DL the games individually also each comes with DOSBOX and runs fine on my Win 8 system.
There is a huge 850 MB DL of Soundtrack in FLAC MP3 and WAV24bit formats.
I think a better investment that some kickstarters of late.
I haven't delved into the history (re: rise & fall) of 3DRealms, but if most of the original/core people are back, then what's to think that the same mistakes won't be made that led to their demise the first time around?
Hopefully they keep in mind a quote from Albert Einstein (IIRC),
"We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them."
Really? Releasing a bunch of horribly outdated games in the 80's and 90's for $40. I wouldn't pay $1. In fact, you'd have to pay me money to play those games again. The original fans have all moved on to bigger and better things. Nostalgia doesn't cut it anymore. Angry Birds and other android games have better graphics. These guys just need to either retire or start making android games since console/pc games take too much work just like their buddy John Romero whose last masterpiece was Daikatana. I think he makes games for pocket calculators now and living out of a dumpster.
