Duke Nukem 3D appears set for a 20th anniversary re-release
Ahh, the memories, the hours, the harsh language from the multiple gory deaths. Of all of the first-person shooters, this one was my favorite. Many was the hour spent gleefully charging through confusing dungeons, finding the hidden treasures and running out of health packs at exactly the wrong time.
I never got tired of it, but upgrading past, I think, Window 98 made it impossible to play any more. New games came along, especially MMOs like Everquest, and we moved on.
I, along with a few zillion others, waited impatiently for Duke Nukem Forever, only to be bitterly crushed when it turned to be heaping pile of fail.
So, this new is rather exciting. It appears that whoever owns the right is planning on an anniversary release, hopefully with updated graphics and Windows 10 compatibility. Five older Duke Nukem games have been pulled from from digital retailers: Duke Nukem, Duke Nukem 2, Duke Nukem 3D Atomic Edition, Balls of Steel and Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project; hopefully, this is a prelude to something great.
