Heads Up: Duke Nukem Forever Now Has An Official Website

Duke Nukem Forever now has an official website

Which is pretty crazy when you start to think about it. The game — which has been in development for, well, forever — is actually coming out in May (apparently). The website's packed with assets, terrible music and "hilarious" quips from the Duke himself. Click through here if you're interested in that sort of thing.

Why Top Spin 4 Is Disappointing With The PlayStation Move But Ace With The DualShock 3

Sports Champions just doesn't get enough credit

Its art-style might be as flat as a pancake, but some of the package's mini-games come closer to true simulation than sports franchise's that have been iterated upon for years. The reason behind its success is the PlayStation Move, which is a wildly responsive unit when used in the right regard. It may have been a launch-title for Sony's motion unit,..

Good Grief, Duke Nukem Forever's Campaign Is 16-18 Hours Long

The general consensus seems to be that Duke Nukem Forever is an old-school shooter

Run into a room, face a hundred monsters, circle strafe and shoot, rinse and repeat. There's nothing wrong with throwback at all, in fact games like Bionic Commando Rearmed and Super Street Fighter IV have had tremendous commercial success because of their reverence for the past. But now you go and tell me that Duke..

Duke Nukem Forever: Balls Of Steel Edition Includes A Bunch Of Crap You Don't Really Want

We're not sure where we stand with collector's editions anymore

At first we thought they were a really novel addition to really big releases, but now that every game gets one, they're starting to feel less special. What's more, the stuff that's included is getting a bit predictable. We suppose they are still great for real fans of the franchises involved, but having bought a couple of these (and..

The Darkness II To Get Cel-Shaded Visual Make-Over

The original The Darkness had a dark but predictable visual style

The sequel, however, will be cel-shaded. That's according to the game's lead designer, Digital Extremes' Tom Galt, who insisted that the new studio are "carving" their own path for The Darkness II, with a bigger emphasis on action and story. “What Starbreeze did well, in a nutshell, were characters and story,” said Galt..

2K Reveals The Darkness II, Developed By Digital Extremes & Due In 2011

Remember The Darkness? Vaguely

Yeah, us too. We remember watching "To Kill A Mockingbird" with our polygonal girlfriend. Then it all went a bit weird and we had snakes coming out of our shoulders. Then it got even weirder, and we started walking around trenches, except the soldiers in them were all skeletons. Or something. Honestly, we can't remember much else. We do know people have been..

Duke Nukem Forever Confirmed For May 3rd Release In North America, May 6th Elsewhere

Mark the date: May 3rd is the day that pigs will fly and Hell will freeze

Duke Nukem Forever will launch in North America after 13-years of development chaos. The rest of the world will have to wait until May 6th for the monumental occassion, but hey, what's three days in the wider scheme of things? “The moment fans all over the world have been waiting for is almost here,” said 2K boss,..

Top Spin 4 Drop (Shots) Onto PlayStation 3 March 18th In The UK

After yesterday's March 15th US release date announcement for Top Spin 4, we anticipated the UK date wouldn't be far behind

2K's just sent us confirmation that the PlayStation Move controlled tennis title will launch on March 18th in good ol' Blighty. The game will feature Andy Murray, Rafael Nadal and Ana Ivanovic (please stop losing! <3) on the cover. The US cover's slightly different. No Ana..

Top Spin 4 Smashes onto PlayStation Move in March

Will it be ace?

Looks like Sega's Virtua Tennis 4 won't be the only Move-enabled tennis game next year: 2K Games has just announced Top Spin 4 will launch in North America on March 15th, with PlayStation Move support from day one. Promising the largest-ever array of past and present stars of the sport – early shots show Andre Agassi and Pete...

Top Spin 4 Releasing In March, Nets PlayStation Move Support

Yes

Yes! YES! Seriously: get in! 2K Sports has slapped a release date on upcoming tennis title, Top Spin 4, stating that the game will release March 15th in the US. But that's not all that's got us excited; the game's PlayStation 3 boxart also comes with a PlayStation Move readily plastered all over it. This is basically our idea of heaven. The news comes via Top Spin's Facebook page, though we're..

Irrational Promises That Bioshock: Infinite Will "Great" On The PlayStation 3

The original Bioshock did not release on the PlayStation 3 at the same time as its XBOX 360 counterpart

The game launched late, and suffered from a fairly inferior port. With Bioshock: Infinite due to launch day and date on the PlayStation 3, Irrational's taken to reassuring fans that the game will not suffer on Sony's platform. Lead technical designer, Chris Kline, reassured fans on the studio's..

Borderlands Level Cap Update Coming Soon, Gearbox Pretty Promise

Are you still playing Borderlands? Thought you might be

That game is big. In fact, if we didn't have a back-log of about 5,264,631 games to review [slight exaggeration - Ed], we'd still be playing it now. And if we were still playing it now, we'd be hotly anticipating the game's level cap raising patch. Speaking of which, Gearbox claim that the patch is finished on the development side. It's just..

In the narrative flashback you'll play as Joe Barbaro during Vito Scaletta's spell in prison. The press release describes the package as "a dramatic storyline with intense arcade-style..

Bioshock Infinite Still Looks Like The Best Thing Ever (Ever)

Bioshock Infinite's not due out for years

It might have actually been announced too early; because there are still two years of development left on this thing. But the one thing we can be sure of when it ships is that it's going to be amazing. Absolutely amazing. Joystiq's got a batch of new screenshots. Catch them through the link.

Duke Nukem Forever Demo To Be Bundled With Borderlands Game Of The Year Edition

2K has revealed that they'll be bundling "demo keys" of Duke Nukem Forever with all purchases of the upcoming Borderlands Game Of The Year Edition

Apparently the key will also provide users with a "wealth of goodies". As if Duke wasn't enough. How many people are going to end up with a second copy of Borderlands just so they can say they've played Duke Nukem, then? To be fair, the..

The Wait For Bioshock: Infinite Is Going To Be Long & Difficult

We were excited about Bioshock: Infinite the moment it got announced

The game's debut trailer was stunning. But nothing really prepared us for this 10 minute gameplay blow-out. Infinite looks distinctly Bioshock in gameplay, but the world and setting carries the same amazement as the initial encounters with Rapture. Columbia looks fascinating. From the rails connecting the various..

The Latest Mafia II DLC Lets You Play As Ed Baines

We're not going to drop it

Vito Scaletta's side-kick in Mafia II, Joe Barbaro, is clearly based upon top restaurateur, and Britains Best Dish judge, Ed Baines. And now he's due to get his own DLC campaign in Mafia II. No, not Ed Baines; his video game counterpart - Joe Barbaro. The DLC, Joe's Adventure, takes place during Vito's stint in prison and sees Joe uncover the truth about the Clemente..

Is There Still A Place For Duke Nukem? -- "Twiggy" The Push Square Opinionator

The re-announcement of Duke Nukem Forever this week has put my thoughts to the test

I was semi pleased when the game was cancelled. Obviously, my thoughts went out to all those who had worked hard and were losing employment — but at the same time, I feel like we've moved on from the Duke Nukem character. Does he even matter anymore? I vaguely remember my brother playing Duke Nukem on one of our..

Duke Nukem Forever Is Coming To The PlayStation 3, Just In Case You Were Wondering

We know you're exciting about Duke Nukem Forever

We don't know why, but it's fact. We were sitting in front of our site traffic counter just as the news of Duke Nukem Forever's re-existence broke, and were amazed by the impact. Suddenly it was like an avalanche of Duke Nukem search queries. Hit counter, high. We had been a little concerned though, that the game might not make it out on PlayStation..
