It's time again ladies and gentlemen to play the game that just won't quit grabbing our imaginations with its promise of murdering hoards of aliens before they "steal our chicks for breeding" - it's Duke Nukem 3D and it's out on Android today! What's essentially the exact same game as was released all the way back in 1991 has been re-released here for Android intelligently by its current owner Machineworks Northwest. You'll be able to grab this classic on the Android Market starting right this second for any one of your Android devices, smartphone, tablet, and everything in-between.
Off all the games in history, the most fabled and longest delayed is Duke Nukem Forever. People have actually grown old and died waiting for this game to launch. The current launch is set for next month. The game better be epic or 2K and Gearbox Software will have lots of explaining to do. Word has surfaced that the game is already selling well with lots of game stores and resellers ordering the title in anticipation of gamer hoards coming forward.
The most delayed game of all time, Duke Nukem Forever, may finally be surfacing very soon. First announced way back in 1997, the game made little development until earlier this year when it was slated to launch on May 3rd. But once again, it was delayed. Now the company behind it, Gearbox Software, asserts that this time the new dates they have for the release and demo are for real.
If you're responsible for one of the most delayed games of all time, and you have to announce yet another hiccup in the roadmap, you may as well try to make people laugh when you break the bad news. Gearbox Software has admitted that Duke Nukem Forever will take a little longer to arrive (again), with the release pushed back from May 3 to June 10 at the earliest, and they've used a tongue-in-cheek video to announce it.

PAX East wrapped up this past weekend and many of the gaming industries big names were there like THQ and Rockstar. But there was also an old game that is ready to make its comeback. Duke Nukem Forever was on hand for all the fan boys out there to finally get some hands-on fun after 12 years of waiting.
For those of you wishing there wouldn't have been a gigantic span of around 12 years between now and the last Duke Nukem title, here's a little present for your wait. This is the Duke Nukem Forever Balls of Steel Edition that'll be coming out the same time as the standard edition comes out for the low low price of $99.99. It might seem a tad high for a game that's basically a shooter from the late 1990's, but can you really put a price on a bust of one of the most offensive video game characters of all time?
It tells of a story of Duke Nukem in the past where he destroyed an invasion of aliens on the planet earth. He died, or at least disappeared without a trace, but now the aliens are back, and of course, there's more of them, and they're much more gigantic. All seems hopeless until they begin to kill... the strippers. Duke Nukem, even though he's been in hiding or dead this whole invasion cannot stand for this, thus, he is reborn in Duke Nukem Forever! All the alien slaughtering and inappropriate nude body touching, hookers, and swearing you remember from the original, and it's still slated for May 3, 2011, as confirmed by this official trailer.
Duke Nukem Forever will officially launch on May 3 2011 in the US, followed by a May 6 international release, bringing to the end more than a decade of waiting among gamers. Arriving for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, the title will be released by 2K Games and Gearbox Software, who took over development after 3D Realms folded in 2009.

It feels like we've been waiting, well, forever for Duke Nukem Forever, but if you've been saving your money in the hope of picking up the game anytime soon, we'd suggest thinking again. Latest news is that game developer 3D Realms has closed down due to funding issues, with staff reportedly already made redundant.
So there's a new Duke Nukem game coming out. Well, a new trilogy of games to be precise. If you value your brain cell in the least, and don't want to lose four minutes of your life I beg of you not to hit the jump and watch the trailer. However, if you're already half brain-dead and/or have absolutely nothing better to do for the next few minutes, then be my guest.
