If Duke Nukem has some moments of insightful commentary you think that'll make it any less a cheesecake shootemup game?
Dead Rising 2's concept is butchery of zombies (and some people) while dressing yourself in ridiculous outfits and duct-taping swords onto your swords so you can chop while you chop. If you don't think that's superficial...you have an interesting skew on concept interpretation.
As for Duke itself, eh. There was a comment I redacted on another forum because it just seemed like it'd be too inflammatory in that atmosphere, but on this one it seems like it'd go over with less ZOMGWUT, so I can sum up my thoughts on it as follows:
I enjoyed playing Duke Nukem 3D for at least quite a few months. I shot aliens, froze guys with jetpacks so they'd fall and shatter, shrank and stomped on pig-cops, spent far too long trying to find ways to make the strippers and slime-covered bikini girls do more interesting things, and generally had a good time.
Then I turned fourteen.
