Achievement unlocked, stepped in poo: Duke Nukem 3D XBLA is finished

3D Realms has confirmed that unlike Duke Nukem Forever, the Xbox Live Arcade version of Duke Nukem 3D is finished and due for release soon. A price point has been hinted at also, along with a list of achievements.

"We officially passed final cert on our first try Friday, August 15th," stated 3D Realms' George Broussard. When mentioning a price point, George said only that it had been discussed, and the game would cost "what you would expect." 

Also revealed were the game's 12 Achievements, some of which fall in line with Duke Nukem's traditionally high-brow and subtle approach to humor. You can, for example, gain 10 Gamerscore for stepping in a pile of poo, or giving a tip to a stripper. All typically intellectual and introspective stuff that should really add a level of depth to this engaging, emotional experience. 

You can view the full achievement list after the jump.

Gee whilikers, guys. I might just explain where I've been and what I've been up to while I've been gone. That'd be a good topic for a c-blog getting me whipped back into shape, right? I'ma try to write more, so expect more of me in the future!

Just bought Fez for xbox 360. Playing it on my 58 inch plasma. What a beautiful game.

So there's a chance more MKX characters are being revealed today. Now, I'm not saying you *should* cross your fingers and say a prayer for me to get my waifu Sindel just, y'know, it would be monstrous of you to make me cry with your lack of love & support

Just so you know, I've been a Huge subscriber for a few years but I thought I had until the end of September to cancel it. So I've opened an inquiry for the refund, which is on tinypass' end of things by the way.

I once posted that Total Recall was the best movie ever made. I would like to make note that Starship Troopers is a close second. Carry on.

I put too many peppers in my sausage and potatoes. My asshole is on fire. I want to cry when I wipe. But it was good.

One glorious Japanese twitter user made a custom LBX of one of my favorite Kamen Riders: [img]http://i.imgur.com/yp1oraHm.jpg[/img] It's like getting peanut butter in chocolate but with small robots and spandex banana men!

I'm dragging myself away from my PS4 long enough to say that MGS V is pretty darn awesome so far.

MGSV: Sneaking into a heavily guarded Russian military base in Afghanistan at night, slashing throats while listening to this. [youtube]https://youtu.be/-hWZqllm3mQ[/youtube] Comes off like a perfectly planned scene in a Scorsese movie or something.

I'm ok with Namco shutting down Soul Calibur: Lost Souls, as long as they keep Ace Combat:Infinity running. Love that game and just hit 3 million credits.

Holy fuck I feel new again. I've been on hiatus for a while and haven't been up to writing. I might just jump back into things after I relearn things here. Does anyone even remember me? Like damn it's been a while.

Wow, it's really easy to get people upset over video games.

I hope MGS V is living up to everyone's expectations. I can't get enough.

I dislike the idea of intentionally reinforcing the notions that either race or gender are character traits, and those that don't match your own are completely unrelatable.
