The other day it was reported that a new Duke Nukem movie was in the works and that it could star none other than John Cena, which we have to admit looks like he could pull off the role perfectly. For those wondering about the rumors, it looks like it has since been confirmed by Andrew Form, one of the producers of the movie.
If you’ve been playing video games for the past one or two decades, chances are Duke Nukem is a franchise that is very familiar to you. Starting out as a pixelated side-scroller shooting game that was along the likes of Contra, Duke Nukem has since evolved into a first-person shooter.
Gearbox Software had to fight a very long legal battle in order to retain exclusive rights to the popular Duke Nukem franchise. It has been one full year since the company settled that legal battle and I guess in the spirit of celebrating that victory it has now confirmed a remastered version of the original Duke Nukem 3D game. Gearbox made this announcement at its panel during this year’s PAX […]
Duke Nukem is certainly a figure that can be said to be rather controversial – especially when you take into account the kind of outrage his character evoked back in his heydays. For those who waited what felt like forever for the last released title (which is ironic considering how the game itself is known as Duke Nukem Forever), you must have been disappointed as the game itself was a […]
Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction was supposed to be the new title in this franchise, according to a teaser that was released in February 2014, however the project ran into some legal troubles and ultimately ended up forcing a name and character change. The Duke Nukem follow up is now called Bombshell, and yet there’s no good news about it, if you have been waiting for this title you won’t be happy to […]
How many of you out there can still remember the very first time where you enjoyed a round of Duke Nukem 3D? All of that crass trash talking, not to mention partial pixelated nudity in certain areas of the game, certainly raised the profile of this digital character. Well, that was all the way back in 1996, and now that it is already the year 2015, how has the game […]
Remember how the Duke Nukem went through mountains and valleys over the years? It seemed that it never really got past its initial success, and with Duke Nukem Forever that seemingly lived up to its name before being released to much panning by critics, it looked as though the Duke Nukem franchise is never going to attain the highs of yesteryear. Well, have all the Duke Nukem games that have […]
George Broussard, the founder of 3D Realms and creator of Duke Nukem, recently suffered from a mild stroke. Thankfully, he is all right now, but thanks to the wonders of social media in the form of Twitter, he managed to tweet about it. Of course, he must have led his Twitter followers through a rollercoaster ride as he documented his complaints of neurological symptoms while expressing his belief that he […]
Is Duke Nukem, the anti-hero of sorts, going to make another comeback in due time? That remains a question that is worth mulling over, but for now, we will have to make do with what little information that we already have. The Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction website, known as AllOutOfGum.com, has redirected the user to NoGumNeeded.com, where on that particular website, it shows off an image of a lit bomb […]
They say that too much of a good thing is bad for you, and I suppose that is generally true if you were to eliminate money and possessions from the equation. In the latest Duke Nukem 3D Megaton Edition, it does seem that one would overdose on the number of Dukes spotted in there, where it depicts the addition of 8-player deathmatch and co-op. Those of us who know Duke […]
While Duke Nukem Forever isn’t doing a great job of holding up the Duke Nukem legacy, its popular predecessor, Duke Nukem 3D, has been assigned with that task instead. Recently made available on Android devices, the game has now been ported over to another mobile device: the QNX-running BlackBerry PlayBook. If you were tired of the games on your PlayBook, I guess it’s about time you relive the 90s with […]
Duke Nukem 3D has arrived on Android and although there is some excitement going on, the first impressions are also (very) mixed. If you don’t know Duke Nukem, it was a classic game in the 90s and was in fact Doom’s nemesis. The action happens in Los Angeles, which is under attack by aliens and Duke is going to use a vast arsenal of weapons to fight back.Duke Nukem fans […]
Remember we previously reported about Gearbox mentioning that they had plans to create their own Duke Nukem game? Well, it looks like they’re going to start work on it pretty soon because the company has just posted up a survey about Duke Nukem Forever on its website, inviting people to answer questions about the game, regardless of whether they’ve played it or not. I guess the company is really taking […]
After the complete fiasco that was Duke Nukem Forever, it looks like Gearbox are ready to dive into the franchise again and release a new game featuring the same protagonist. During the PAX last weekend, Gearbox Software’s game development chief, Randy Pitchford, hinted at the company’s plans to release their own version of the game at the Gearbox community panel. Seeing how Duke Nukem Forever was in development hell since […]
