Duke Nukem Forever at Least 3x the Size of CoD

By Kyle Durant

February 14, 2011

In a recent episode of GTTV, Gearbox Software’s, Randy Pitchford took a modest jab at the Call of Duty franchise. When describing the campaign length of Duke Nukem Forever he stated, “It’s like three or four Call of Dutys, right?” which would average to about 15-18 hours of gameplay. Almost everyone is familiar with the incredibly short CoD campaigns which last at best around six hours. But we play CoD for the multiplayer anyway right?

So was Randy Pitchford’s comment truly a jab at the CoD series or just “beefing” up Duke Nukem Forever? In the spirit of Duke Nukem, why not say both! There has already been a confirmed Halo Easter Egg in the game with a certain insult starting with the letter “P”. It makes no sense for CoD not to have a similar treatment besides Mr. Pitchford’s comment. Perhaps Duke could come upon an assortment of CoD games and go “What’s the difference?” in a humorous fashion?

With that said Mr. Pitchford finished his rant with “The game will speak for itself. I love it,” and let’s hope we do too. It’s been only what…11ish years of excruciating pain simply waiting for the games release? All puns/jokes aside, Duke Nukem Forever is releasing (SERIOUSLY) on May 3rd for the 360, PS3, and PC.

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.
