Yesterday saw the launch of Duke Nukem Forever. If you were a member of our forums for a long period of time you might actually have an odd case of deja vu. This is actually the second time that we have experienced the launch of Duke Nukem Forever. The first time was a sick joke one April fool’s day over nine years ago which is quite fitting for the lewd and crude franchise. Some argue that our current release is a sick joke, but that is a whole other story.
Duke Nukem: Forever and 3363 days.
Back in April 1st, 2002: Think Geek announced the availability of Duke Nukem Forever for Linux, Windows 3.1, WheatoniX, and Plan 9. The general buzz on the forum was about the marvel of being a PC gamer and how much of an impact Duke Nukem 3D had on our lives. So go on, nostalgia at the old fashioned giant PC gaming boxes and nostalgia at the forum thread long since forgotten.
If it’s not a joke then it is
If it’s not a joke then it is the most repulsive game I have ever played I am never going to play a game as long as I live with titles coming out like that, I am going back to playing Angry Birds!!!
Yeah I wasn’t appreciative of
Yeah I wasn’t appreciative of Duke’s humour even knowing that it is completely tongue-in-cheek. That said I am actually having fun with the game (I can ignore the humour pretty well) due to its mixture of Half Life and old-school shooter. Some portions (especially some “Ego Boosts”) require an excessive amount of tuning out, however.
