We are creatures of habit here at g33kWatch. We like talking about Superheroes, Mass Effect, and of course Duke Nukem. So when it came out this past week that Gearbox has been working on a new Duke Nukem game, and that we can expect details pretty soon, we all got to thinking just how we can make a Duke game work in this current time and place. Some people liked the new game, and that’s good for them,because the rest of the world was just going on and on about how much it sucked.
No matter how you felt about it though, I think we can agree that Duke is a product of a much different time period. Something has to be done so that he is just a bit more modern, or at least acknowledges that.
We come up with some ideas on how that may come to pass. Perhaps you will enjoy that.
We also get a special report in from Mr. Khon on the new DC Comics reboot and how that universe is going. Sounds interesting at least from the onset and that’s a good thing for DC as a whole. Our own MC Chops discusses the latest entry in a little video game franchise called Madden, and We all get hot and bothered about Gizmodo’s geeky relationship bait article. Then we of course talk about what kind of bait articles that we would write here at the site and potentially get a new idea on a piece of content.
No matter what you are looking for, we have a smattering of great content for you so listen and leave lots of comments!
