The King of Action is back, in tiny form. Duke Nukem, a name that will likely never die in the gaming universe, has just landed on a new platform.

This morning  at the PAX East show in Boston, MA -- though slightly forbidden, we were able to steal some video footage of the infamous and forever anticipated Duke Nukem Forever.  Finally set to release in May 2011, the folllowing is early in-game footage of actual game play.  Ready to kick ass and chew bubblegum ("and yeah, he's all outta gum"), Duke is actually looking pretty slick and the baddies, well, they're looking bad, as you'd expect... 2K Games was allowing controlled 20 minute gaming sessions for show attendees.  Game play itself was a hoot as you'd expect, with...

As hard as it might be to believe, forever is nearly here. Duke Nukem Forever, the long-awaited an long-delayed sequel to Duke Nukem 3D has a launch date: May 3. Duke Nukem Forever was once the property of 3D Realms. However, that company folded in 2009, and it seemed like Duke Nuke Forever was going to be renamed Duke Nukem never. Instead, the franchise was picked up by Take-Two Interactive ("Grand Theft Auto" franchise), as the publisher, and Gearbox Software ("Brothers in Arms") as the developer. Of course, as one might have expected, those two and 3D Realms fought over who truly owned Duke... Read more...
Seriously folks, we couldn't make this stuff up if we tried. In fact, this is the stuff that pure comedic gold is made of. Duke Nukem Forever, which is arguably the most highly hyped game to never emerge in official fashion, was thought to extinguished forever when 3D Realms (its developer) went under earlier this month. Weeks later, the game has resurfaced in conversation yet again, further proving the point that this title simply will not ever die. According to a blurb over at Bloomberg, Take-Two Interactive Software, which makes the heralded Grand Theft Auto series of video games, has sued Apogee... Read more...
Duke Nukem Forever, the epitome of vaporware, seems to now be gone forever. On the other hand, it's not as though any of us were holding our breath for it. In multiple reports, 3D Realms, the Texas-based developer of past Duke Nukem games, is said to have shut down. Take-Two (planned publisher of the game) VP, of communications Alan Lewis said in a statement: "We can confirm that our relationship with 3D Realms for Duke Nukem Forever was a publishing arrangement, which did not include ongoing funds for development of the title. In addition, Take-Two continues to retain the publishing rights to... Read more...
Duke Nukem Forever is one of the quintessential examples of vaporware. In fact, it's held up as such in the "vaporware" Wikipedia article. And you can bet hundreds of times the "Forever" part of the title has been said to mean how long it will be in development. That said, a new game featuring the iconic Duke Nukem would be a hot seller, and that makes this big news.3D Realms promised that as of 10AM PST today, a Duke Nukem Forever "teaser trailer" would be available.  And wonder of wonders, the trailer was not vaporware!  It showed up.  Unfortunately, the servers are really overloaded.However,...

Among the many forms of highly desired but currently unavailable technology breakthroughs, workable e-paper ranks at the top of the list. Last year LG Phillps announced their development of A4 sized flexible electronic paper. This year, it's got a workable version in color. The 14.1-inch flexible color e-paper uses electronic ink from E Ink to produce a maximum of 4,096 colors. It can be viewed from a full 180 degrees, so that images always appear crisp, even when the display is bent, according to the LG.Philips. Like the black... Read more...
