Content about duke nukem forever


Every Tuesday, Sony brings its PlayStation faithful new content, add-ons for your favorite games, Themes and avatars for your PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable. Not the best week for new content for new content on the PSN. If you missed Duke Nukem Forever then here is your chance to get the king as he finally makes his debut on current gen consoles. Not the best game on the market, but worth a pick up if your Duke Nukem Fan.


For every "best of" 2011 list that is out there, there's an equally atrocious "worst of" list.  We've already run down the movies that really stunk this year, and now it's the game industry's turn.  And while we were a bit surprised that neither Brink nor Duke Nukem Forever made the list, there was still plenty of stink to go around.  So, without further ado, here are the ten games that really blew chunks...


Duke Nukem Forever may not have been a hit with all the critics (one even went as far as to rate it a 0 out of, really?), but the fact of the matter is, it was still a success with 2K Games, and no doubt that the Duke will return for a sequel somewhere down the road.  In the meantime, Gearbox is packing this game's release with plenty of DLC, and this Tuesday it'll have a whole new batch for dedicated Duke dudes and dudettes to play around with.


Black Friday.  It's a day for folks to go out and splurge on mad stuff they've always wanted, but with a price that's definitely more reasonable to withstand.  Best Buy, Target and Toys R' Us have their deals set to go Friday morning around midnight-ish, but Steam has got the jump on all of them.  The online gaming service has already begun selling games like mad RIGHT NOW.


Though it has yet to reach the kind of audience that Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 are currently enjoying, the OnLive cloud gaming service is on the rise.  Ever since it launched last year, millions of users have been thoroughly investing in the service, playing on both the comfort of their computers and through the offered MicroConsole units (for TV play).  Now, on the verge of OnLive launching for iPad and other iOS devices, the company has moved forward with a launch in the UK -- and several new games coming soon.


It's not often you see a company reward its attendees when they come to their panel, aside from telling some great stories and entertaining them, of course.  We're talking PHYSICAL rewards.  But Gearbox Software actually turned a few heads at its panel, not only bringing 140 pizzas to feed its happy, hungry attendees, but giving them an unexpected bonus -- its upcoming 2K Games release Borderlands 2.


You don't often hear about gangbusters announcements happening at an evening like the Penny Arcade Expo, as they're usually saved for the likes of GamesCom or Electronic Entertainment Expo.  But there are those smaller ones that still make a significant dent, like the return of Duke Nukem Forever, which was a highlight from last year.  This year marks the return of a Sega favorite, Sonic CD, which is rumored to be making an appearance at the company's booth in downloadable form, on Xbox Live Arcade.  It's big news -- and a good second chance for a game that deserves one.


If anything is inevitable in the video game industry, it's that if a video game is successful, a sequel -- or maybe more -- will follow.  This has been proven time and time again, and this year alone will bring a series of sequels to the forefront, including Resistance 3, Uncharted 3, Modern Warfare 3, Gears of War 3 and more.  Now rumors are circling that 2K Games' open world shooter Borderlands will be getting a sequel sometime next year.  To which we say, "Um, surprise?  We knew this already."

Now that June is pretty much coming to a close, it's about time to put all of our grades together and write up a report card for the second quarter of 2011. After the year got off to a pretty solid start, the second quarter really picked up the pace and hosted a bevy of games that made these past 3 months a special time for gamers. With mulitple titles that could be in the running for Game of the Year, the second quarter has a good shot at being the best quarter this year will see.

SEATTLE -- 2K Games and developer Gearbox made a surprise reveal at the PAX PRIME 2010 in Seattle when they showed the game for the first time. PAX Prime 2010, also known as the Penny Arcade Expo, is an annual public show centered around video games. Many of the top video game companies are on hand to show off their latest products, some for the first time like Duke Nukem Forever. Duke Nukem Forever's reveal quickly became the biggest story at PAX because of its long history of false starts and its surprise appearance and announcement at PAX that caught even the game media by surprise.
