Duke Nukem Forever Review

I  previously played  the original Atomic Duke Nukem 3d when it was on DOS. I thought the characters were good, and I loved the weapons. I mostly loved the attitude, and the funny things Duke says.
        I just started playing Duke Nukem Forever a few days ago, and  I love it now more then I did the last one..This time the aliens are back impregnating women, and now it is up to Duke to stop them. From the aliens, to the guns, and everything in between. The critics however are being too brutal to the game. They do not like the graphics, okay the graphics are not as good as other games. The environment is 3D not 2D, and it looks more real. The graphics engine used made the game more spectacular. Duke Nukem 3d did not have good graphics back then either it was pixilated, so it is damn good compared to now.

       The game is a like a fun ride to go on, and there in nonstop action. The character is a smartass, and it is very fun to use the very weapons that made the original awesome. I love the game, and I will play it over and over again. It is that great of a game. The people who say otherwise as Duke Nukem would say, “Come get some.” with lines like that the game is funny, entertaining, and too awesome to stop playing. Play it, and you will see how cool it really is. I even got my boyfriends opinion on it. This is what he said about the game, “The game took elements from the 3d game years ago, and the fun of interacting with the environment like peeing or drinking a beer even small things like drawing on a dry erase board. The game is very funny I think just blasting away at the enemies is still a fun Duke Nukem thing. I think this is what fans of the franchise were dreaming of. Newbies to the Duke Nukem games just need to play with an open mind, and then they may see this game for what it truly is. A really good dream of a shooter  as the Duke would say.”
       There you go a fully interactive environment  makes the game even more wildly entertaining. Like sticking a rat in the microwave, and drinking, smoking, and the good thing is you can get more points for interacting in the form of points toward his ego. The ego recharges over time instead of using health packs. There are also various puzzles placed throughout the game like riding around on a car when your shrunk down to a ant. Places such as a strip club, a burger joint, a casino, and many more places that makes the game entertaining. The game is just amazing which is why I think the reviews Duke Nukem got were unfair, and it is now up to you to decide whether to get the game or not.

Tv Shows, Books, and Video Games oh my!


I have been staying away from the computer, and relaxing while watching mindless tv shows. I love the new teen wolf series on mtv. It was better then the classic movie. I watch Choppped a tv show where contestants compete to win 10,000 dollars. It is a very good show that comes on tuesdays at 10 on the food network.
Top Chef Master is always a favorite with chefs winning money for the charity, and competeing to win Top Chef masters, and 100,000 for their charity of choice.
The Next Food Network star is also a show I watch, and contestants compete to win a show on the food network. I love the challenges they have to do.

The shows I watch are good, but I cannot wait for True Blood. Season 4 is the season with witches, and the book for 4 is called Dead To The World. I hope they follow the story line.
I am re-reading The Summoning, The Awakening, and The Reckoning, by Kelley Armstrong. The main character is Chloe Saunders who is a necromancer running away from the people that genetically altered her powers. I forgot how good it was until now.
 As for video games I am anxiously waiting for Duke Nukem Forever, and Elder Scrolls Skyrim.
Duke Nukem Forever takes place where the last Duke left off. The earth is once again taken over by Aliens, and it is up to Duke to kick ass and take names. I played the demo, and it was better then I imagined. The graphics are surreal, and very good. I saw some of the monsters like the pig cops who are better then the original. I even saw a baby octobrain, and the face suckers are done really well. I loved the guns like the shrink ray.  The shotguns are there as well as some of the classic Duke Nukem guns. If the demo was good then the game will be even more awesome.
Elder Scrolls Skyrim takes place after Oblivion. This time there are real dragons in the main story. You can dual weild magic and weapons which is a very cool feature. The trailers are awesome in describing what has changed about the game, and so much has been added to the game that I want it to come out now. There are weather changes, more spells, leveling up is different, and more characters. The graphics are way cooler this time around.
