The Duke is Back and on the 360

45 second read

Finally Duke Nukem is back… No it’s not the final appearance of Duke Nukem Forever but rather the arrival of Duke Nukem 3D on the Xbox Live Arcade.

In true 3D Realms style we still don’t know when it is actually going to arrive but according to a post on their official website the game has passed certification (first time lucky) and is now waiting for Micrsoft to price and schedule it.

To be honest I was never one of the biggest fans of Duke (I preferred Quake) but he does have quite the cult following.

I wonder if the online multiplayer is going to be as cool as the original?

So how much do you think it’s going to cost and is it worth it?

[Thanks Flameboy for the tip]

    Will probably cost 1200 points but in my opinion is worth about 25.

    I also preferred Quake over ol’ Duke.

    Duke is the only FPS that has a character that actually HAS any character. Which is why he’s so popular.

    I’ll get Duke Nukem Forever just to see what a game that’s been developed for 10+ years looks like.

    I’ll be getting this purely for the nostalgic value. Duke rocked.

    Honestly, when I was 12 (or so) when the first Duke Nukem came out, I thought it was stupid back then – with terrible humour, to boot. Then, after I saw the trailer earlier this year, I remembered why.

    Awful in 1996…probably awful in 2008, too.
