The Duke Nukem As-I-Play LiveBlog

By Alec Meer on June 10th, 2011.

Boom!
Update: that’s it for now, folks. I’ll try to do some more over the weekend. I must be honest and admit I don’t want to though. So far it’s a bizarre, often witless mess of scatty, wasted ideas, clunky writing and surprisingly little action. Here’s hoping it improves now I’m out of the backtrack-heavy casino bit, though.

Eventually, via dark magicks, I have made Duke Nuke Forever on Steam work. I’ll be playing it on and off during the day, and sharing my thoughts in the below liveblog. No need to refresh the page – just watch and let it happen. And, hopefully, laugh and think about how clever I am. Or how witless and inaccurate I am. That can happen too.

It’s Here (Or Is It?) – Duke Nukem Forever

By Alec Meer on June 10th, 2011.

Congrats, man

Today’s the day. Today is the day. The day that over a decade of abject silliness is finally resolved: Duke Nukem Forever has been released. Good grief! It’s actually happened. It’s available in shops, whatever they are, right now, and also on Steam. Unfortunately, a number of players, myself included, are experiencing a problem wherein over 100 game files – including the main .exe – are not downloaded, thus preventing access to the game. (Yes, I’ve tried validating and redownloading; no, it didn’t work). Graaaaaaaah! A final, cosmic joke perhaps? I hope you’re not prey to it, but it does mean my plans to run an as-I-play liveblog have been denied for the time being.

So, anyone fired it up yet? How’s it seem? And how does it feel, to be playing this game of such infamy?
