The King is Back, Baby.

He's the king of catch phrases, pickup lines, and big freaking guns. The Duke has been through hell in this past year, thwarted the demons which chained him down, and is now returning stronger than ever - better than ever. The king is back, baby. Duke would kill me if he heard that I almost cried when GN member Fujiko sent word that my hero and savior, Duke Nukem, would be returning to video gaming worldwide! For real this time. We promise. Well, I don't know if I can promise that - but, you know. It could happen.

It's a port of the original Duke Nukem: The Manhattan Project, but this time for XBLA. Features below -

  • Dynamic, zoomable camera gets you close to the action and shows Duke battling it out from many different angles.
  • 8 atomic NY-themed missions: Rooftop Rebellion, Chinatown Chiller, Metro Madness, Unholy Underworld, Fearsome Factory, Tanker Trouble, Deviant Drilling and the final out-of-this-world episode.
  • 9 powerful weapons: Golden Eagle Pistol, Shotgun, Assault Rifle, Pipe Bomb, GLOPP Ray, Pulse Cannon, Pneumatic Rocket-Propelled Grenade Launcher and the Mighty Boot kick. Plus, some weapons get powerful upgrades by collecting all Nuke symbols in the various skill levels, leading up to the incredible X-3000!
  • More than 25 enemies ranging from the Gator-Oids, mutated Uzi-wielding alligators, to Fem-Mechs, female robot mutants with deadly whips. Classic Duke enemies like the PigCops will also be among the dead piled up at your feet
  • True Duke Nukem action and attitude, great weapon effects and sarcastic one-liners

Yeah, that's right. Balls of Steel, baby.

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
