Kethinov writes “Ars Technica writes one of their most negative reviews of a game in a long time referring to Duke Nukem Forever as “barely playable” and “one of the worst games from a major studio in quite some time. The jokes border on hateful. The graphics are a blurry mess. The shooting is unsatisfying.” Their verdict? Skip this one.”

uslinux.net writes “Gearbox Software released the demo for Duke Nukem Forever today, though it’s only available to preorders and other promotions for the time being. After more than a decade, it looks like this game will actually hit stores this month. After 12 years in development, will it live up to the hype?” Included with the linked article is DNF’s launch trailer. This should go without saying, but just in case: NSFW. Seriously.

Duke Nukem Forever Multiplayer Mode Predictably Controversial

Gearbox Software has released some information about the multiplayer modes for Duke Nukem Forever, which is due out May 3rd (for real this time). In addition to standard deathmatch (called Dukematch), team deathmatch and a king-of-the-hill mode, there is “Capture the Babe,” in which a typical CTF flag is replaced by a woman. Eurogamer explains it thus: “… when you grab the other team’s babe, she sometimes ‘freaks out.’ The solution? Give her a gentle smack.” Gearbox’s Randy Pitchford, clearly understanding how politically incorrect this sounds, said, “You can get some things across in screenshots but not really. So we’re kinda struggling with how we expose it so people understand what’s there. The proof is in the pudding so to speak, so I don’t want to talk about it too much.”

Hooray!”

kaychoro writes “There may be hope for Duke Nukem Forever (again). ‘Jon St. John, better known as the voice of Duke Nukem, said some interesting words during a panel discussion at the Music and Games Festival (MAGFest) that took place January 1 – 4 in Alexandria, Virginia, according to Pixel Enemy. Answering a question from the crowd regarding DNF, St. John said: “… let me go ahead and tell you right now that I’m not allowed to talk about Duke Nukem Forever. No, no, don’t be disappointed, read between the lines — why am I not allowed to talk about it?”‘”

The Nuking of Duke Nukem

Rick Bentley writes with more on the story behind the meltdown of Duke Nukem Forever, the game that will now live on only as a cautionary tale: “Although the shutdown was previously reported on Slashdot, this new Wired article goes in-depth behind the scenes to paint a picture of a mushroom cloud-sized implosion. Developers spending a decade in a career holding pattern for below market salary with ‘profit sharing’ incentives, no real project deadlines, a motion capture room apparently used to capture the motion of strippers (the new game was to take place in a strip club, owned by Duke, that gets attacked by aliens), and countless crestfallen fans. *Sniff*, I would have played that game.”
