What is it about Duke Nukem that makes him so special? Simple answer, Duke hasn’t changed. While Duke’s legacy of delays and closed studios has no doubt eclipsed the content of the game itself ( there is even an interactive game release timeline on the disc) Duke Nukem is the same asshole that he’s always been, and people like that. Following Scott’s lead I stopped by the nearest Red Box and payed two dollars to take Duke Nukem home with me for the evening. I had a feeling Duke would be a shitty date, but I decided to take him home with me anyway.
Bioware will have a large presence at this year’s San Diego Comic Con! That’s right, Bioware will be showcasing demos of Mass Effect 3, SWTOR, and the new Dragon Age II DLC at their own location right outside the convention center. As if that weren’t enough, Bioware will also be participating in a handful of panels.
