It Gets Worse


Just when you thought it was over and you could lay Duke Nukem Forever to rest, 2k Games announces that Duke's first downloadable content will arrive this Fall for PC, Xbox 360, and PS3. This news is golden if your in the mood for more buggy, repetitive gameplay.

The new multiplayer-focused "Hail to the Icons Parody Pack" features three new game modes and four multiplayer maps. Now you don't have to suffer alone while playing this game. These new gaming modes include "Freeze Tag" - Players freeze and explode opponents for maximum points. "Hot Potato" is a mini-game in which players grab one of Duke's babes and try to keep hold of her for the longest possible time, while being pursued by other players. This part of the bonus bundle also includes "Hail to the King" free-play mode.

What especially interesting is the form of this DLC pack. Hail to the Icons Parody Pack takes a few jabs at Duke's FPS competition (You know, the games that are actually good so Duke has to make fun of them) in the form of four new maps. "Call of Duke" throws Duke in a war-torn city equipped with the N00b T00b. Players take the role of mini-Duke in a giant sandbox with two bases at either end made out of toys in "Sandbox". The pack will also feature two editional maps entitled "Inferno" and "2Forts1Bridge".

Maybe I'm being a little harsh on Duke Nukem Forever. These modes could be actually fun, but I don't think Duke Nukem Forever is in any position to parody successful games.
