All out of Gum, err, Games: Duke Nukem Titles now on the Site

If I can go a week without thinking or saying the name “Duke Nukem” I’ll be happy. I’ve had a placeholder page up almost since the site launched because I knew fleshing it out would be a lot of work. Turns out, there was even more work to be done than I was expecting.

Thanks again to SHROOMY for laying the groundwork with a submission, we’ve now got six titles on the site that span numerous platform releases with an overview of what happened. It’s fascinating and if it weren’t for the development hell of Duke Nukem Forever all these games would probably still be online.

Like other delisted games that are wound up in a bigger story, each page has the full breakdown so choose your favorite flavor! Duke Nukem, Duke Nukem II, Duke Nukem 3D, Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project, the 3D Realms Anthology, or Balls of Steel.
