Gaming News 7th Sept 2010

A lot has happened whilst we have been away but perhaps the best and unlikeliest news that has hit the wine-vine since we were last here is the news that (whisper it) Duke Nukem Forever was in playable form at the Penny Arcade Expo.

Yes, we know until we actually get our hands on it we wont really believe it either, but it seems that 2K Games and Gearbox Software have once again got Duke on the treadmill and have him gearing up to return in 2011. Speaking of treadmills, we think that a massive intro montage of a fat drunken Duke having to go through loads of training to shed the weight he has put on in the ten or so years he has been hanging around watching porn and drinking beer, would be a brilliant way to open the game. Just us?

We did bring some tantalising news back in January when the voice of Duke, Jon St. John spoke about not being able to speak about Duke Nukem. Now we know what he wasn’t talking about!
“All great things take time… a lot of time,” laughs Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “After a hiatus from the video game world, Duke Nukem is back and better than ever. The return of the King from the glory days of shooters will satisfy our patient, die-hard fans, as well as a new generation of bubble gum-chewing, flat top and shades-wearing bad-asses. Make no mistake about it – Duke Nukem Forever is a testament to the era of when shooters were bodacious and fun.” Did he actually use the word bodacious? This guy is really stuck in the 90’s isn’t he Ted?

Adding to these musings was Randy Pitchford, president of Gearbox Software, who said, “Hail to the king, baby! It’s unbelievable, it kicks ass and it’s totally going to happen! Gearbox has enabled die-hard key Duke Nukem franchise builders and skilled veteran game makers to stand together and deliver. All gamers deserve a happy ending and after all of us gamers feeling the full range of emotions about Duke Nukem Forever, I am thrilled to be in a position with the trust, power and means to make it happen. Am I crazy? Balls of steel, baby, balls of steel!” Balls of steel or not he sounds pretty crazy to us but then we still are hoping for good things from Duke, let’s face it we have been waiting forever.

Duke Nukem Forever is coming next year (Maybe) for PS3, 360 and PC.
