Geek Update: Nuke it from Orbit!

It's true, it's really really true. Duke Nukem has a release date, May 3rd 2011. It's coming back with all the adolescent humor, irreverent nods to cult classics, and gratuitous tit shots. Only now, they have better graphics. Gameplay looks like it'll still be fun as hell, and I again state that I must own this, it's a moral fucking imperative.

I give 2k and Gearbox two big Dangerboy thumbs up for saying boldly in their trailer
"We're Fucking Bringing It." Square, balls on hit to the target demographic.
Make no mistake about it, this is a misogynistic, uber violent man-man-manly-man fest featuring toilet humor and dick jokes out the wazoo. It is not a work of art, but something to let our inner 6 year olds laugh at farts. And I welcome its return.

Hail to the King, indeed.


  1. Farts are funny. Plus, there's nudity. Oh, yeah.

  2. Hmmm. Doesn't really sound like my thing, but I'm sure my husband will be all over it.

  3. I wouldnt get my hopes up yet, dude. This is the king of all vaporware. Duke Nukem Forever was originally supposed to come out in 1997 or 1998. I read this article in Wired magazine that explained what the problem mostly was is that everytime they would pick an engine and develop a game around it, new, better, hardware would come out, and they would develop ANOTHER completely new game, around the different engine, and by the time they got that done, something else cool would come out, and they would do it all over again. This went on forever until the company went bankrupt.

  4. @jarhead I know, hence the 12 years gag in the trailer. 2k/gearbox is in great shape, high off Borderlands. I'm pretty sure they'll actually make this one happen. Finally.
    Also, welcome!
