Duke Nukem Forever, the game that took 15 years to be made, has finally been released at last. It's now available at the Steam Network for download and on Amazon, where shipping action starts Monday.
Duke Nukem Forever has received poor reception from critics, grading the game around B. Neil Davey of the United Kingdom's Guardian has particularly hit the the 15-year old game hard. He concluded his article by saying "If this was 15 years in the making, it makes you wonder what they did for the other 14 years and 10 months."
The game is a first person shooter similar to today's games like Halo or Doom. Apparently, the thing that breaks it the most are the awful loading times. But hey, this is Duke Nukem Forever we're talking about. This is the same dude who made the 90s gaming era a hell of a lot better, not including Lara Croft by the way. Duke chews bubblegum, drinks beer, curses obscene words every time he gets a chance, kills aliens, and best of all gets ******** from all the hottest girls around town.
