There's something about the first-person shooters of the '90s that makes them (some of them) still hold up to this day. I mean, Duke Nukem 3D shouldn't be aesthetically pleasing to me in 2012, but the old sprite-based characters are oddly charming, and these titles tended to move at a pace we don't always get with modern shooters. Plus, they were ridiculous.

Considering that Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition is currently free for PC and Mac on GOG.com, much of that justification was probably unnecessary, but there you go. If you are looking for a way to relive a bit of Duke history, you can't go wrong with this deal.

Duke Nukem reads an excerpt from 50 Shades of Gray

Last weekend at ConnectiCon 2012, the guys from Team Four Star made Jon St. John read from 50 Shades of Gray in the Duke Nukem voice. From what I've been told, this book is like the next Twilight. Based on this excerpt read by Jon, it's safe to say I never ever want to talk about 50 Shades of Gray ever again. Duke Nukem, 50 Shades of Gray Fan [Topless Robot]
