    Suck Down Duke Nukem Forever's Gameplay Demo

    Previously on the Duke Nukem Forever saga, it was announced that Gearbox Software was helming the zombie reanimating of the once dead title. With an early playable build, the DNF news set the interwebz ablaze with reports, accounts of the action, and terrible shaky cam videos of chunks of gameplay. Now, some dude at an Amsterdam gaming convention has captured, in HD, the gameplay demo of Duke Nukem Forever in it's entirety. Marijuana and massive screenings of Duke? Lucky bastards.

    Those initial reports did not lie, this is classic, cheesy, disgusting Duke in all his ass-kicking glory. Pissing, drawing dicks, shooting the fuck out of a towering mutant alien, and getting head from not one, but two chicks. Normally, I don't really care for the poor taste of lowbrow in my games (ahem, Bulletstorm), but this is Duke, the originator, and one of the turning points in my gaming career. I can still hear the deafening cavalcade of my 14.4k modem causing everyone in my house to wake up with bloody ears, just so I could shoot Devastator missiles at my next door neighbor on Duke Nukem 3D's football field. Good times.


    Duke Nukem Forever, Soon?

    The first big news out of PAX '10 is that Duke Nukem Forever is alive and well. 2K Games has confirmed the on-again off-again perpetual life-supported title will be released after being tossed in a bin and killed earlier this year. The underdeveloped test tube corpse of Duke Nukem Forever will be placed in Gearbox Software's laboratory, where millions of fans who have been waiting for a decade and a half, hope that a playable game can be salvaged. If Duke Nukem Forever ends up being three quarters of the game Borderlands is, I'll be thrilled.

    I never have high hopes for highly publicized projects that start and stop production, die and are resurrected. Sadly, we see it happen a few times, with titles that start off having so much promise, but when they're finally released they're underwhelming shells of their former glory. Duke Nukem 3D could be the title that got me to fully appreciate and love first person shooters, so needless to say, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Forever, for what seems like forever.
