A World Without Duke Nukem is Unlivable?

By Kyle Durant

If there is one thing the gaming world knows, its Duke Nukem Forever has been a long time coming. In fact, some referred to Duke as dead for over a decade. Well Randy Pitchford (Gearbox) feels the same exact way and only Gearbox Software could save Duke from “death”. Luckily, they did since Duke is coming back very soon. But what if Duke Nukem Forever wasn’t releasing or wasn’t even in development? Well Mr. Pitchford believes that is a life not worth living. Is that obsession with gaming or being overdramatic? You decide…Randy Pitchford’s statements are as said below.

“When Duke was dead I thought ‘oh my gosh, we are the only people in the world who can save this, we have to commit to it’. I had to decide if it was worth it. It’s a huge risk… But Duke is absolutely one of a kind, and there’s nothing else like him in the world, and I need him. Like, I don’t want to live in a world where Duke doesn’t exist.”

Duke Nukem Forever is set to release on June 14th for the PS3, 360, and PC. Hopefully when that time comes we won’t get sad statements like this anymore.

Pretty much your above average gamer who plays games profusely and appreciates them even more. Been gaming since the NES but is in love with anything PlayStation. No I am not a typical fanboy...I appreciate each system for their strengths and recognize their weaknesses. I just love the PS brand. (Think along the lines as someone who likes to read but loves one author in particular). Ever since my time as #2 in the world at Resistance 2, I have taken video games much more seriously. Don't get me wrong, I am a laid back, fun guy to game with...but I always play to win.
