Out of the Blue

It's time to tell you about Duke Nukem 3D's birthday and chew bubble gum, and I'm all out of gum. As mentioned yesterday, today is the 18th anniversary of the release of the Duke Nukem 3D shareware in 1996. The 2.5D shooter came just months before Quake brought us into the 3D era, but the game still had plenty of previously unseen technical improvements and an amazing fun factor. I was heavily into DWANGO at the time (shout out to Irontoes, Nagel and other regulars on the New York server) and a testimony to the game's enjoyment was how much we played the shareware after it was added to the service, as we're not only talking about a place were we typically only played DOOM all the time, but basically on one single map. Happy birthday Duke... first round at the strip club is on me.
