As you might expect, publisher 2K Games has been heavily promoting Gearbox's Duke Nukem Forever .
And among the new assets they've delivered to the press is a very clear message : DNF marks the return of the good old-fashioned shooter; i.e., it's "an antidote for today's clichéd FPS archetypes." Above all else, it's the main character that should grab your attention, as DNF features a video game hero like none other. As 2K routinely says, this is no sci-fi space marine or "Bourne" clone; it's a "much missed cocktail of alien invasion, busty babes, brawny comedy and big f**kin' guns." Well, regardless of how the game turns out, we have to agree that gaming takes itself too seriously too often, and DNF reminds us of that shameless fun we seem to have lost.
The demo – currently available for First Access members – is receiving mixed reactions, though, so we'll have to wait and see…
