Duke Nukem Forever : It's been a long, long wait!

Remember back in 1997 when Duke Nukem Forever was announced? Well, nearly nine years later, we've got what looks to be a near golden-master version of the game. Why has it taken so long? Dig in and find out if the long, long wait was worth it.

"Overall I had a great time. The game is graphic, violent, and mercilessly unimpressed by the current trend towards cutting back on sex in games. It pushes everything in terms of content, from language to nudity. I'm sure we'll hear from every politician after this game, and of course this is worth about ten more months in the limelight for our ol' buddy Jack Thompson. The game doesn't pretend to be anything it isn't. It's a fast-paced game that caters to everyone's worst impulses. While I wish the online play was a little bit more robust I'm sure this is something that can be fixed with later mods and maybe even expansions."

edit: If you beleived this, shame on you! This was an April's fools hoax. :)

  • You posted this a day too late. It's a lame April Fool's day joke. For example, "Duke Nukem Forever has been rewritten as an Ajax application written using the Ruby on Rails framework." For a complete list see the wikipedia post http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/April_1%2C_2006.
