Libraries And Liquor: A Day In The Life

By Adam Smith on December 7th, 2014.

Alec wrote about some of his favourite gaming moments last week and I was inspired to put together something similar. Ever the structuralist, I decided that I’d string my favourite moments across a fictional interpretation of an actual day. Here is one of many days in my life, from a breakfast of champions to the blurred bottles at the heart of Saturday night.

Play Duke Nukem 3D Forever With Steam Workshop Support

By Graham Smith on December 11th, 2013.

In reality, I'd probably bet on this guy.

Want to play Duke Nukem forever? No, not Forever, the infamous, trashy, awful recent sequel. I mean, do you want to spend an eternity playing Duke Nukem 3D, the spirited, mechanically inventive, first-person shooter that made the King’s name in the first place? The Duke Nukem 3D Megaton Edition released back in March has just added Steam Workshop support and made it easier to mod and play mods for the game than in its previous sixteen year history.

Duke Is Out: Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition

By Craig Pearson on March 20th, 2013.


Remember Duke Nukem Forever? I apologise for bringing it up, but it’s important you realise that it was an imposter. A duck in Duke’s clothes. There was a reason we were all excited about the possibility of a Duke Nukem game, and with the surprise release of Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition you can see why. Devolver Digital are bringing a shinier, but not too shiny, version of the classic shooter to Steam, and they magicked up a trailer.

Shake It, Baby: GOG.com Giving Duke 3D Away For Free

By John Walker on December 12th, 2012.

Do you want to play Duke Nukem 3D for free? Well, since it’s increasingly difficult to get hold of it on floppy disc and copy it across, the most practical way to do this would be to just take it from GOG.com. Cos they’re giving it away for free. Sure, it takes some of the thrill away, but at least you won’t be destroying the games industry in 1996. This freebie is intended to lure you in to spend more money at the site, as they’ve just launched their nonspecific Holiday Sale. Which holiday?! Is it Easter already?

Duke Nukem 3D, 3D

By Alec Meer on April 24th, 2009.

I’m forever in two minds about projects to graphically update olden games. On the one hand, shiny! On the other, snarling hand, there’s a risk of messing up or losing the originally intended aesthetic effect – you’re replacing the artists’ work with that of someone else. Case in point, the just-released update for the Duke Nukem 3D High Resolution Texture Pack. Decide whether you’d snog, marry or avoid it below.

Old-Fashioned Misogyny: Duke 3D on GoG

By Alec Meer on February 26th, 2009.

It’s always fun to hear about what new retro sweetmeat has found its way to Good Old Games‘ DRM-free servers – to sigh and think of times gone by, to think of how silly our hair was in 1995 and to wonder whether the Manic Street Preachers would be any good today if Richie hadn’t gone missing.

Today, it’s the turn of Duke Nukem 3D, along with a host of other old Apogee stuff. It’s almost odd to think of people paying hard cash for Duke 3D these days – so many FPSes of that era simply haven’t aged as well as their less graphics-reliant strategy, RPG and adventure contemporaries. Of course, Duke earned some 21st century stripes last year, with the well-received XBLA port, so it’s nice to see him back on his original home too.
