Storm's Adventure with Bulletstorm and Duke Nukem Forever

Now that those other shooters are out of the way, it's time for me to play a few that I wanted give a spin.  And I think this video encapsulates my mantra, "I only look out for numero uno." Bulletstormstormstormstorm, m...

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. This new adventure was actually originally released on the PC back in 2002 and now it's been revived for Microsoft's red ringing console. Glad the series is not dead, but I still want Duke Nukem Forever in a bad way. Check out the latest trailer and all the screens below.

EA should try to buy Take-Two again

The whole EA/Take-Two almost became a joke (and a waste of ink) it got so drawn out. EA would try to buy Take-Two, Take-Two would reject them, EA would come back, Take-Two would reject them again. It finally all settled with ...
