Duke Nukem Forever Hands-On

Getting this day one! Slightly dated graphics, humor not gritty, not realistic, not call of duty... sign me up!

Heck it might even get me to play multi-player again.

Ego meter.

That just screams pure win.

Indeed.

I will buy Duke Nukem Forever.

A statement I did not ever expect to make.

maantren:
If only they'd do the same for Blood...

Yeah, I don't understand why they fucked that up so much with Blood 2 actually. A rotten, mouldy, incredibly atmospheric and just plain evil game turned into a generic gray corridor shooter. When I played Blood back in the day, it made Doom feel like a kiddy game, and I want that back. You know, a shooter with some actual personality and lasting effect.

Once the game is out weeks of laughter are guaranteed. First cause it promises to be full of nostalgia, humor and self parody, and second cause Fox is bound to get their hands on this.

>'FULL NUDITY IN THE GAME YOU CAN PEE ON TITS'
>there is no nudity, tits are concealed with censors
>As a joke, Gearbox sues Fox for slandering
>Earn millions
>Fox goes bankrupt

Imagine?

Think about it this way: If this game ends up being super generic lamesauce, it does actually have a legitimate excuse. This series INVENTED super generic lamesauce, quite literally! Duke was been a hero long before Soap MacTavish was even an idea. Duke Nukem is the father of modern generic shooters.

Even still, the game looks like it's be utter WINsauce. I'm excited.

Hail to the King baby. Love the 'ego meter'.

Duke Nukem Staff Meeting:

"So, after 12 long years of development, how are we going to overcome the hype surrounding our title? What's going to prevent people from being disappointed after the nostalgia wears off?"

long pause...

"Fuck, not another puzzle!"

"On second thought, I think we're good to go!"

It will be interesting if this game transcends the whole uber-realistic "games are serious business" trend that's risen up in the past few years.

Of course, Duke also gets drunk off of only one beer, which hardly seems to fit the manly ideal the designers were going for.

must be one hell of a beer...

One of these perhaps? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1354411/Worlds-strongest-beer-Sink-The-Bismarck-goes-sale-55-bottle.html

Did Duke ever say "That's one hell of a beer!" ?

For some reason I can only read your comment in his voice. :D

Damnit! I thought I was first to comment about it. Oh well...

Triforceformer:
What I'm worried is that most people will be stupid like IGN, basically. Berating the game for not being like Call of Duty or Halo even though that is the entire point of the game. DNF is about taking the FPS of the now and turning it up to Eleven. But it seems dumbasses like IGN only see a broken speaker because it isn't the exact same thing that they've gotten used to.

I agree with you there, most people seem more concerned with this Game not being enough Like Call Of Duty or Halo. Duke Nukem has never been like those games and Quite Honestly I'm getting this Game, not just because I've been a Fan of Duke since the beginning, but because the Game actually looks like its going to FUN to play, Yes I said FUN. Most Shooters today I find aren't always fun to play... More Annoying or Repetitive then actually fun. Then again That's just my Opinion of course
