Duke Nukem Forever Starts Shipping

Since it's already the 10th in some territories, Steam News announces that Duke Nukem Forever is now available in places. Word is the game is available in Australia, New Zealand, and parts of Asia, and the shooter sequel "will release in other regions soon." DNF is due in North America on Tuesday.

Picked it up yesterday almost for nostalgia's sake (more money than brains I guess) and played for an hour or so...

Yeah, clunky controls, tips popping up all the time ("Orly? I need to be told what button to use to throw the item I'm told? Every fucking time? RLY?!?!"). Turn off post processing, it's fucking god awful (the DOF for zoom is broken to shit, half the time the monster is blurred out completely).

Set pieces are ridiculously easy. The humour is a rerun of the original, which should be good but I guess being a 20 something when it came out I was much more amenable to tit/dick/fart jokes than I am now. Overall, it tries way too hard to look and feel like Duke3D while the game underdelivers in almost every other category.

Incidentally, it runs pretty slick on 6088x1200 eyefinity on a single 5970, zero technical issues getting that setup the game adjusts quite handily to it).

All things being said, I'm enjoying Red Faction:Armageddon (which I picked up at the same time) a hell of a lot more than poor old DNF.
