About



Oh, hi there. Didnít see you enter. Anyways, welcome to my humble little blog. For those of you not familiar with who I am, the nameís Brian. Iím 24 years old and hail from Findlay, Ohio. I work at the local newspaper here as a copy editor, putting my four long years of college to actual use. Kind of. I think.

For those of you who might recognize me from elsewhere, I work as Assistant Gaming Editor over at Blogcritics Gaming and as Features Editor over at Tomopop. It's a lot of work, but it's worth it because I get to do a lot of cool shit with a lot of cool people.

I've been gaming since the relatively young age of around 3 and I've played plenty of games, both good and bad. I'm continuously expanding my gaming collection, which has become more of an archive in recent years as I'm focusing on collecting older, less well-known titles. You'd honestly be surprised on what people are missing out on in bargain bins...



Other than gaming, I love anime, manga, sports, movies, TV, and a whole lot more. I also happen to have something of a legendary love for Cammy, to the point that I am the site's unofficial official Cammy fanboy. And yes, I do play as her in Street Fighter and do so quite well, too.

Also, I am Chad Concelmo's B.F.F., my prize for coming in first in The Great Retro Quiz .18 - ActRaiser. Accept no substitutes. Not even Aerox.

So, you thought the Gearbox/Duke Nukem marriage was a one-time deal? Well, so did I, until this news came out from Gearbox's last panel at PAX Prime 10: Gearbox Studios, not 2K or Activision Blizzard or anyone else, has bought the rights to the Duke Nukem franchise. The whole thing.

According to a press release Joystiq has apparently seen, "Gearbox Software announced today that it has acquired the full intellectual property rights of the 'Duke Nukem' brand including Duke Nukem Forever and all future projects in a cooperative deal made with 3D Realms." However, that's not all: "The first product to be available under the Duke Nukem brand will be the long awaited Duke Nukem Forever."

That all seems to indicate that, nope, this isn't the last time we're going to see Duke. Does it mean we'll see some of the many missing-in-action Duke games like the rumored Duke Begins Gearbox was developing or the Duke Nukem Trilogy for handhelds that's in limbo? Who knows. But always, always bet on Duke.

Me? I can't wait for Anthony Burch's writing debut in Duke Nukem Forever 2: Duke Harder coming summer 2013 to the Xbox 360, PC and PS3. Feel free to start spreading that rumor right now on Twitter.
