Deals are deals, but rarely do you see “free” as the deal. But until the 14th, you can download Duke Nukem 3D for both Mac and PC completely free from GOG.com. All you have to do is sign up for the site, which you may have done already and voila. Free Duke Nukem.
Some of you may be a little to young to remember this, but in ’96, 3D Realms released Duke Nukem 3D, a title which became in instant first person shooter classic. Fifteen years later, after wandering around in development hell, Duke Nukem Forever is out, and I gotta say, DNF was an unforgettable ride. A terrible ride that rapidly descends into a genre-confused Hell, the likes of which I don’t think I’ve ever seen before.
You’ve waited way too long and now you not only want to get your hands on Duke Nukem Forever, but you want to get your paws on the collector’s edition. Well check this shit out for your fucking collector’s edition.
Gearbox announced yesterday that if you’re one of the few (or maybe even one, above) people that still have been clinging onto your Duke Nukem pre-order receipt since 1998, they will honor it. Score! Wait… dammit.
There’s no word as to whether GameStop will actually honor said deal (probably not), but for the one of you that still has your receipt, give Gearbox a call. They’d love to hear from you.
Yes, that’s not a typo. Gearbox Software has taken over development of Duke Nukem Forever and the game was available for hands-on play today at PAX, with an official unveiling event later this weekend. But… but when Duke Nukem Forever comes out, where will we get all the obvious vaporware jokes from?
