A Quick Tip by TheJohn

  • Jun 17, 2011
Duke is back to save Las Vegas, the world and of course our women from those slimy aliens again. Duke cracks one liners, blows up monsters and ogles women, but we've seen it before and a lack luster online mode doesn't help.

Get Some Go Again
In the 90's the FPS genre was taking over and clones of Doom were churning out endlessly and that still holds true today.  Many of those FPS games then and no are cookie cutter cutouts of one another.  Duke Nukem however back then stood out in a few ways:  Puzzle solving to reach your goals, a fun sense of humor and it's game play was good, or at least different enough that it didn't feel like the same old same old.  The titular Duke was a cigar smoking, big gun …

The long-awaited swaggering machismo of Duke Nukem is finally back and the King has some alien butt kicking to do. It would be next to impossible to do a review on Duke Nukem Forever without mentioning that the game had a development cycle rumored to be near 15 years and it was released almost 12 years after it was first expected. One could probably write a book on all the reasons behind the lengthy delay of the game which stemmed from graphical engine changes, publishing changes, creative team …

Grindhouse Game #6: One of the biggest criticisms against this game for this specific platform was that the loading times were far too long. Nowadays this can be rectified though. MAKE SURE your 360 is hooked to the internet so you can download the 4MB patch. And then MAKE SURE you install the game to your hard drive. These two tweaks should help ensure that you experience loading times no longer than about 15 seconds down from 45 or even 60. Believe me, it makes the gameplay experience much, much …

Reading a lot of these negative reviews has made me pretty irritated, to say the least. The way people have been trashing this game is almost like they just played Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing (considered by many to be possibly the worst videogame ever). True, there are some things missing from Duke Nukem 3D that should have been in Duke Nukem Forever, but it still has a lot of good things as well, along with maintaining an unmistakeable “Duke Nukem” feeling, so it doesn't deserve …

Did the Alien bastards not learn their lesson the first time? Duke has been on hiatus for some time now, kicking back and franchising himself on the fame he gained from saving Earth from the first invasion. The Aliens have returned to Earth yet again, messing up Duke's sweet routine of dirty leisure habits. The Alien invaders are stealing Earth's women, especially the hot ones! And they drank Duke's beer. This-Won't-Stand. As Duke battles his way through waves of aliens, the once beautiful gambling haven and Duke Nukem franchise chains are crumbling before his eyes. Time to bring the pain
