Random sites and even Major Nelson say the pre-order has been announced for Duke Nukem Forver ... Where's the beef?
Duke Nukem release date still not official, demo still unannounced
BatRastered spotted it earlier in the day on some random site. Duke Nukem Forver pre-order has been announced and the release date is February 1st 2011.
That's right, that's what Amazon says. Even though, it's still the fake box art. That pre-order page also says: "Official pricing and release date have not been announced by the publisher. These are estimates only and subject to change."

Gearbox Software and 2K Games both twat about the private Duke Nukem party "Come Party with Duke Nukem in Las Vegas" just a few hours ago. You'll get to play Duke Nukem, drink and possible see some titties.
Sign-up for the party now. The only thing is you gotta bring me with you.
Other valuable information you should know is that you need to be at least 21. Also you can't offended by nudity and/or hot women. I guess though if you are into Duke Nukem, that doesn't matter. So sign-up and here's to us Partying with the Duke.
Grab your copy April 5!
In a surprise move, Gearbox has covertly shipped thousands of copies of the long-delayed DNF to retailers world-wide. You'll be able to pick it up this coming Tuesday in the US. Lines have already started forming at my local Best Buy. Check it out.
Sorry I haven't been very active lately guys. Been busy with my birthday and some other stuff, but to make it up to you I've got a review of Duke Nukem Forever.
Duke Nukem Forever. The game that most of us never thought would see the light of day, has finally been released. Was it worth the wait?
Graphics: Let's start here. Duke Nukem Forever has been in development for about 12 years now, and it definitely shows. The graphics in this game are very sub-par compared to the games were used to seeing released nowadays, but I wouldn't say they're terrible. They look like a very early 360 game, or maybe even a late Xbox game. They get the job done but don't be expected to be blown out of the water by any means. There are posters on the wall that are so blurry you can't read them, and Duke's jumping animation when looking in a mirror is laughable. Literally, I laugh every time I see it.
Story: I'm going to tell you right now that if you waited for Duke all these years hoping for an epic story you're going to be very VERY disappointed. Pretty much Aliens came to earth, and duke needs to stop them....again. But this time they've taken all the women, and Duke won't stand for that. And that's the entire story. No plot twists no nothing, that's pretty much about it.Read full story...
Duke Nukem 3D in stunning Next Gen visuals!
Duke Nukem: Next Gen is a new independently developed game on the Unreal Engine 3 using the free UDK. It is made by the fans.
The project has started only recently but it has now got the official blessing of Gearbox.
The stand alone game, will be released for free and it will include a 3 episode single player campaign, which will be a re-imagining of Duke Nukem 3D's campaign, and it will have a multiplayer mode.
Instead of waiting to release the whole package when it's done, the team promises they'll release new playable builds when they hit certain milestones. For now they plan to release a multiplayer build, "sooner than you think".
Check out the official thread on the Gearbox Software forums here
I think this looks bad ass and cannot wait to try it. Your thoughts?

I got the code to download the demo this morning and thought I'ld make a video for those of you who missed out.
The game that took 12 years is about to be here, but if you were a First Access member you should get a code for the demo today. So check your email. If you didn't get the demo don't worry I have some low quality video of it.
The first video covers the intro and a fight with a big fucking alien. It goes up to the start of the second part of the demo so you'll see some driving also.
The second video picks up just after you jump the canyon with your monster truck and get put back on foot. This will lead up to a fight where you have to throw explosives at a spaceship until it explodes. So far I just keep dying.
If I get past that I'll add a part 3 later. Until then here are my thoughts on the demo.
First off the game is made be Gearbox (the people who made Borderlands) so they know how to make a fun FPS. And I have the demo on PS3, but it should be about the same on the 360. Once the game starts you get a couple laughs and a fight. The controls here are pretty typical for any FPS. After you take down that first big alien you find out that Duke was playing a game. And he is using a Xbox 360 control. So that was funny to me, and made me wonder if he'll be playing on the PS3 control for the Xbox version. After the cut scene you get to drive Duke's monster truck. It handles like crap, but you get to run over some aliens and jump a canyon. Then you are back on foot. The pig face aliens seem to be rendered pretty nicely here. The graphics might not be cutting edge, but they aren't to bad. I was surprised not to here to much talk from Duke, but what he says does change as you play. And some if it is funny, but just some of it. Overall it is pretty much what you would expect from Duke Nukem had it not taken 12 years to make.
So now to pass judgment on the game. If you are new to the series or looking for a great FPS I'm going to say rent it first. But if you have been waiting for this game go right ahead and buy it, you'll get the game you have been waiting for.
Well thanks to it taking forever to upload to YouTube I was able to finish the demo. There was a RPG hidden in the little shack next to the mini gun, and that got me through the fight. You head down into the mine and get to fight a little more and ride in the rail cars Indian Jones style. After some more shooting you find some gas and make your way back to the monster truck and after you gas it up the demo ends. So you get to try out the handgun, shotgun, devastator, shrink ray, rpg, ripper, rail gun, pipe bombs, and some explosives. Not a bad selection for a demo.
And here are the last two videos. #3 is going through the mines and #4 is getting out then getting to see a censored version of the trailer they already released. It might have all fit in one video had a not got lost a couple times and realized that there was a little plat forming to be done.
So that is the entire demo. What did you think? Besides that I need to practice before making a video and that I need to download some video editing software.

I'm pretty sure this game isn't coming out when they say it is.
Amazon is still taking pre-orders, but the date has moved back from February 1 to May 31.
Official pricing and release date have not been announced by the publisher. These are estimates only and subject to change.
There is no official box art on the site, and the description for the XBOX 360 version still has the info from Borderlands on it.
Don't be fooled!

After all the hype and drama about the game here's some good news.
"With the Duke Nukem Forever demo just around the corner for members of the First Access Club there, Gearbox Software and 2K Games are thrilled to announce that the First Access Club benefits don't stop there!
Any First Access Club member who has registered as of today will receive the very first downloadable Duke Nukem Forever multiplayer add-on pack for free when it's released!* Surprise!
Thanks again for all of your support, and always bet on Duke!
*Platform availability and eligibility is subject to local laws and regulations."
So we will get the first multiplayer add on pack for free, now that was worth it. I got my access free by getting a game I already wanted (Borderlands GOTY) so getting the demo was a nice bonus. But this looks like the knew the fans were still looking for something better after the crap with the date change and a demo just over a week before the game comes out. Gearbox and 2K games have made a real smart choice here. I was surprsed that there wasn't some joke about Duke coming more than once. Maybe they are saving it for later.
So what do you think now? Was this a decent promo afterall? Or are you salty about a DLC announcement before the game even drops?
Hail to the King baby!

It's Duke Nukem Jimmy! I think I might be the most excited person I know about Duke Nukem. When the pig Jimmys are throwing jars of pickles and mayonnaise at Duke ... Awesome. This game is going to shock a lot of people. At least on that first playthrough.
Sometimes bigger isn't always better!

A full on launch trailer for you Jimmies still on the fence.
