..xD

Brings up a good point..how will Fox News react to Duke Nukem when it finally comes out? :D

Seriously...I think Fox may explode, especially considering they called Mass Effect a "Rape Simulator" And said bulletstorm would turn people into rapists. :/

I'm predicting that they're just going to ignore it, myself. :P

Oh really? Like they ignored Mass Effect and Bulletstorm?

No ma'am....Duke is going to cause a media firestorm on Fox.

Meh, I avoid that. It sets me off too easily :/ besides, I'm bloody sick of 'realism'. Duke couldn't be coming back at a better time.

Holy crap, Sabby? Possibly excited that Duke is back?

...Seriously did I walk into some Bizzaro world? O-o Duke Nukem seems like it would be something you'd hate, Sabby.

Nope.  Like they ignored Mass Effect 2 and all those GTA 3 sequels. :P It's a pattern I've noticed.  They never go after established properties, only new ones.

Besides, Duke's so over-the-top that they're not really going to know where to start.

Considering he's been out of commission for 14 years now, I dunno...they may treat it like a new Property, especially if Duke does well and actual makes a come back into a new series of games.

Personally, I just don't like the fact that the gaming community want's to call itself mature and will bash EA's Dead Space 2 ad. An ad which can be marketed to seventeen-year-olds (in the U.S. at least). This is the same community that will buy a Duke Nukem game. What's the Duke got that exempts it from maturity? Nostalgia. I'm not opposed to gross fun, violence, and sexual pandering in general I just don't think the community should have it both ways.

I didn't grow up with the Duke so I doubt I'll buy it. It's not like Mortal Kombat where it has been around the last fourteen years. I could at least play MK when I was seventeen.

I love Zero Punctuations mock review of DNF from back in 2009 when no one in their right mind thought the game would actually be released.

http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/zero-punctuation/748-Duke-Nukem-Forever

Oh how I look forward to his inevitable actual review of the game (well, if DNF's release can ever be considered 'inevitable'...)

Nah, it's gone firmly into the realm of parody by now, Wolfy. :P

I dunno...can it really be called Parody if Duke was arguably one of the first ever to do it? :P

What? Sabby's totally macho!

And yes, Wolfy, it's parody. Duke3d was parody when it first came out. Thus why all his quotes are from other things.

Can something that hasn't basically existed on the radar for thirteen years even be parodied?

Nope, it's official. Duke Nukem Forever will be called the next Rape simulator by Fox News.

How do I know this? It's quite simple, dear friends:

And I quote:

One of the less funny aspects involve the Capture the Babe mode. When you grab the other teams "babe", sometimes she'll start to freak out and struggle as you take her back to your base, so you have to give her a smack to quiet her down.

A smack on the ass, but still.

:D Thoughts? Feelings? RAGE? ^-^

While I doubt Duke Nukem Forever is going to be a rape simulator, I doubt anyone should feel enraged, incensed, or offended that it has come up in controversy. You can't ask for the the Duke and not take any repercussions for getting the Duke. :\

I'm only worried that it'll set back games' acceptance into the artistic. However, you can't be set back when the media's views of you are already rock bottom. Have fun with the nostalgia, I guess.

xD Oh Gearbox and 2K...can you do no wrong?

Now to promote the game, they've created a nice little promo game called...Duke Nudem.

You shoot targets and try to beat one of four women's scores, and if you beat them, they take their tops off for you. :D

It just grows better and better everyday.

Technically.

Have you actually tried playing that game? It's horrifically laggy - I can't even get my cursor to a target before it vanishes.

1 - type it in where?

2 - the quick-draw game's a total luck shot: either the target pops up near your cursor or you lose. ;p

3 - keeps wanting to freeze up on me. x.x

4 - beating Rosie by 1 point induces a grin.
