Duke Nukem coming back after 13 years

Written by Nedim Hadzic

So what have you managed in the meantime?
It’s already official – Duke Nukem is coming back in 2011, but the general public has every right to retain the skepticism that has served them well and kept them from disappointment all these years.

Unfortunately, yours truly must admit that as much as he wanted to see the game, he didn’t want to see it ruined. I mean is the story of lonesome marine trooper stuck on an island/spaceship/boat/planet the best this industry could come up in the absence our beloved babe-saving “hero”? Sheesh, one would think that there are still shards of imagination laying around game studios.

Now however, we have few reasons to be on our toes and we’re really hoping to see Duke revived in its full glory. Unfortunately for the new owner, Gearbox, we must admit that it better be “full glory”. Gamers (as well as movie buffs) are sick and tired of sequels made with only cash in mind – we want real Duke. Period.

13 years is a long time, no doubt about it. It took NASA less than that to put a man on the moon. All this time has seen many not so glorious games come and go so we’d like to know a few things. Namely, what have you managed to do waiting for Duke and what was your favorite thing in Duke Nukem 3D? Of course you might want to keep it short, except when talking about dealing with dancing ladies from the game – we want to know a lot about that.

Seems like I've been waiting half my life for this.. Oh wait.. I have!

After the amount of times it's been put on the back burner, I'm not holding my breath for it.

If it does come out I hope it has the best storyline ever with graphics to match otherwise it just won't be worth the wait.. Plus I hope they keep the dancing ladies in!

So... What's the relevance of this news anyway?

Quoting dondrei:
So... What's the relevance of this news anyway?


they always report on duke nukem updates of it ever coming out. Although this article is a week late. Many have already talked about how Gearbox is actually stepping up the effort and production to get this thing released once and for all after they bought it. The guys making it before were too OCD and perfectionists and always changed shit too much after seeing something "new" in a different game.

So...what have i done since Duke Nukem 3D? Well, i started high-school, and finished it. Then i went to college...and finished it. And I'll probably get fired from my first job until Forever comes out.

No doubt I will play this game even though I'm not so frantic about it. The gameplay look pretty nice.

What I liked? His fun lines (and pickup lines), ladies dancing, imaginative weapons, and LOTS AND LOTS of action. and of course stuff like pissing and admiring his own image in the mirror ;) That level with cinema was a nice touch as well ;)
anyway, just give us a hardcore "man's" game, without censorship and rated as high as it gets! Kids will play it anyway ;)
