Duke Nukem sure has come a long way since the early side scrolling action that captivated the interest of this young DOS explorer. I would rather NOT tell you about the history of the franchise or why Duke Nukem Forever is the most anticipated game of all time. I would rather NOT tell you to mark your calenders for the June 14th launch. And I would rather NOT tell you that this game looks like it is going to meet all of our long building expectations… but I must.
Put on your shades and prepare to step into the boots of Duke Nukem, whose legend has reached epic proportions in the years since his last adventure. The alien hordes are invading again and only Duke can save the world… and more importantly, our women! Pig cops, alien shrink rays and enormous alien bosses can’t stop our hero from accomplishing his one and only goal: to save the world, save the babes and to be a bad-ass while doing it. The King arrives with an arsenal of over-the-top weapons, non-stop action, and unprecedented levels of interactivity. Duke Nukem was and will forever be immortalized – come this June, history will be made.
Game Features Include:
- Return of the King: He’s back, baby! The King returns in an explosive and action packed shooter that puts pedal to the metal and tongue firmly in cheek, among other places. Kick ass from the Vegas Strip to the Hoover Dam all while serenading your ears with your favorite Duke-isms.
- Interact With the World, the Duke Way: Experience a fully interactive and immersive look into Duke’s world. Shoot hoops, lift weights, read adult magazines, draw crude messages on white boards or ogle one of the many beautiful women that populate Duke’s life; that is if you can pull yourself away long enough from kicking ass and taking names.
- Kick-Ass Arsenal Puts the F-U Into Fun: Obliterate enemies in style while giving them the Duke Nukem one finger salute. Prepare to shoot enemies in the face with a bad-ass assortment of shotguns, RPGs, pipe bombs and other trademark Duke Nukem tools of destruction. That’s going to leave a mess!
- Glorious Return of Frenetic Multiplayer Action: Multiply your pleasure by engaging in four Duke-tastic modes against seven other players. Freeze, shrink, pipebomb and humiliate your friends as you laugh in their face.
On Friday EA and DICE released their new Trailer ‘My Life’ for upcoming title Battlefield 3. The trailer features gameplay footage and gives us a quick peek into some of the action on the ground and in the skies.
Battlefield 3 It is to be released on November 2, 2011 for PC, PS3, and 360 and has been hyped because of the introduction of Frostbite™ 2, the next instalment of DICE’s cutting-edge game engine.
Battlefield has always had a strong multiplayer experience but adding to the single player mode (that I always prefer) this time a new animation system will allow players to “drag fallen comrades into safety and mount weapons on almost any part of the terrain”.
Update: You can also head on over to Battlefield.com to watch the 12 minute ‘Faultline’ trailer which gives you a more extensive look at gameplay or check it out below!
So tell me, will you be making the switch from your current FPS in November?
Attention all bookworms!

Operation 7 offers 5 FPS modes that will keep you engaged again and again. Head Hunting, Deathmatch, Survival, Hold Line, and Demolition. Each self-explanatory mode includes over 90 modern weapons based on real-life firearms. The truly enthralling aspect of the weapons plan in Operation 7 is the ability to create your own weapons. With 540 gun parts that you can combine and assemble, you will no longer be content to using the same weapons as your opponents.
Operation 7 is a MMOFPS similar to many other titles in the genre. The game is downloaded to your PC and played through the game’s server in order to connect you with other players. The game has a tutorial and training level that is very reminiscent of another FPS that you may have played *cough*COD*cough*.
The game touts somewhere in the vicinity of 22 maps in which players can engage in quick combat with up to 24 players. The community for the game is growing and I constantly found rooms that were both full, queuing, and idle. The gameplay is fast paced, which makes up for the very familiar feel in what is already an overcrowded genre. There are some unique aspects to the game such as the ability to lean, to heal, and create custom weapons. The character creation is limited and lacks the option to play as a female, but very quickly you forget about that and begin to sift through the weapons selections which coincide with your keyboard’s………..
