Duke Nukem voice actor slams 'clueless' critics

0

Duke Nukem voice actor Jon St. John has written off negative reviews of Duke Nukem Forever as coming from "clueless" critics. These, of course, are the same critics that would have been quoted on press releases had they said anything positive, because you're only clueless if you're not sucking a game's cock.

"I have no comments regarding bad reviews by clueless critics," he told TheJoyPads. "They seem to want to compare Duke Nukem Forever to Call Of Duty and other FPS' and they are missing the point. My thoughts about Duke Nukem Forever: It freakin ROCKS! Lots of action, lots of fun, sexy, funny, irreverent... It's everything I hoped it would be."

Randy Pitchford went the more passive-aggressive route on Twitter, using argumentum ad populum to fight in DNF's corner: "With sales data, It seems like *customers* love Duke. I guess sometimes we want greasy hamburgers instead of caviar."

Sales data is definitely high, as we all knew it would be. But then, Randy himself also Tweeted later that The Hangover 2 is the highest grossing film of the year so far ... which kind of undermines his point that commercial success = quality entertainment.
