It has been over 12 years…that's a long time to maintain excitement.
When we asked the PSXE readers how pumped they were for Duke Nukem Forever , the majority decided to adopt the "wait and see" attitude, while a great many don't care at all. Let's not forget that Duke's long absence means the younger generation of gamers are totally lost; to them, those who are interested are just a bunch of nostalgia-addled oldies. On top of which, even those who do remember Duke Nukem don't seem all that convinced in the overall quality of DNF. Gearbox is a very competent developer, of course, but considering the immensely stiff competition (especially in the FPS category), it remains to be seen if Duke Nukem Forever can compete with the heavy hitters in 2011. Either way, we remain psyched simply because the character of Duke Nukem is iconic in our eyes…in truth, he can never really die.
This week, you probably guessed: what's your take on the Next Generation Portable (NGP)? Unveiled last week, we've seen everything from that wacky debut trailer to continual price predictions . Maybe you loved it the first time you saw it; maybe you think it's sweet, but you'll wait to get one. Or perhaps you're just not into handheld gaming at all, and the NGP hasn't changed your mind. Let us know.
