Preview: Duke Nukem Forever

When I first watched the trailer an some of the gameplay for the new Duke Nukem game I had so much testosterone in my body I punched through a brick wall and challenged Chuck Norris to a fight. And when I awoke from my coma I decided to do a preview of this game. Duke Nukem Forever is a new FPS coming out June 14 for the Xbox 360, PC and PS3. This game has been 12 years in the making, gone through numerous setbacks and changes and it's finally coming. The whole premise for this game is simply aliens big whoop, aliens take it's personal. With the last Duke Nukem coming out in 1996 and this one originally scheduled for somewhere around 2000, gamers have had an exceptionally long wait for this game but Jason Hall, host of The Jace Hall Show, says "This might be the only game in history worth waiting 12 years for, perhaps longer.... It was good." Duke Nukem will be one of those games you really just have to buy, with 12 years in production, how can it not be good? This game promises to have more outrageous gun fights then The Matrix, more versatility than Batman's utility belt and more balls of steel than...anything! Versatility such as car driving sections and multi-player. That's right, up to 8 people can engage in such modes as: Dukematch, Team Dukematch, Capture the Babe and Hail to the King. Duke Nukem also happens to feature some of the best one-liners in gaming history, next to GLaDOS. If you don't believe me check out the Ventrilo Harassment video posted below. So if you want a game that's going to kick ass (and chew gum) look for Duke Nukem Forever on July 14th.
