Duke Nukem Gameplay From PAX 2010

Duke Nukem Forever

Since everybody else and their mom is posting about the shocking news that Duke Nukem Forever lives, I suppose we were obliged to get a post up as well. So here it is: the obligatory Duke Nukem Forever post.

In case you don’t know what I’m talking about, here’s the skinny: the fabled and long ridiculed vaporware has been kept alive like some sort of Frankenstein’s monster by Gearbox, creators of Borderlands. Over the weekend at PAX Prime 2010 in Seattle, Washington, the greatest of all gaming conventions had the killer reveal on the show floor, and people actually got to play the game that time forgot and mocked.

And naturally, people took lots of video. It was like spotting a unicorn in the wild, with double rainbows blazing from its pure and silky mane. Personally, I liked Duke Nukem, but I don’t identify with all of the mania. I think more of the craze is about the fact that the game exists more than the franchise itself, but I could be wrong.

So, is anyone here excited about this news? Were any of you Duke Nukem fans? Crappy offscreen handheld videos after the jump!

  1. lol. I would have like to have gone inside the booth to see the game….except the line was always like 1-2 hours long. It also had security outside the doors lol. So Mitch and I skipped it to see other things.

  2. I don’t really understand the mania either. I mean I had the original on floppy discs for my parents computer when I was a real young boy but man…

    I think the craze comes from a time when nerds were actually nerds… It’s semi-cool to be a gamer now adays (apparently).

  3. I was going to play this at PAX, but thought of all the better things I could have done in the 3 hour wait time.

  4. OMG 😀 😀 😀 😀 fuck yeah I thought it wouldn’t die. YUSS. Some players would be proper Duke Nukem fans, the rest probably would just be there to see what the fuss is about.
