What was 3D Realms thinking with the Duke Nukem fiasco? photo
What was 3D Realms thinking with the Duke Nukem fiasco?
by Brett Makedonski

With this week’s news that Gearbox Software has filed a lawsuit against 3D Realms and Interceptor for unauthorized use of the Duke Nukem property, it raises the question – exactly what the hell are 3D Realms and Interceptor doing? The question is multifaceted, both in terms of legality and the current status of the Duke Nukem brand. Of course, there’s no clear answer, because everything they’re doing seems to be ill-advised.

Before we move on any further, it’s worth noting that the only information we have is what Gearbox outlined in its Complaint. Neither 3D Realms nor Interceptor has filed an Answer, meaning that we technically only have one side of the story. Everything is only alleged at this point, and nothing has been proven as fact. However, given the allegations raised by Gearbox, it’s hard to imagine a scenario where 3D Realms is justified in its actions.

Farts N Crafts: Duke Nukem's Turdy Dogfight photo
Farts N Crafts: Duke Nukem's Turdy Dogfight
by Max Scoville



Following up Friday's debut of "Dumb Idiot Ideas," here's the first episode of another weekly series: "Farts 'N' Crafts."

On this show, I draw horrible pictures of things vaguely related to what's going on in the world of video games. Today's subject is the recent news of Gearbox Software's lawsuit against Interceptor Entertainment and 3D Realms over Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction, but more specifically on a comment made by Destructoid community member Red Morgan.

Got ideas for another stupid thing for me to draw? Leave it in the comments.

Review: Duke Nukem Forever photo
Review: Duke Nukem Forever
by Jim Sterling

They say you should never meet your heroes, as you'll only ever be disappointed. I think the same thing can be said for videogames that have accrued over a decade of expectations and hype. If you never play it, at least in your mind it will always be everything you ever wanted.

If you play Duke Nukem Forever, you'll be slapped in the face by reality. The reality of Duke Nukem as a character, as an IP, and as a highly anticipated videogame is in stark contrast to the idea of a charming, cool, and hilarious series that years of delusion and marketing have concocted. 

The reality of Duke Nukem Forever is that it's absolute garbage that should have stayed confined to the bowels of Development Hell.

Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project coming to XBLA on June 23

Duke's not dead! Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project will be out June 23 on Xbox Live Arcade for just 800 MS Points.
