Gearbox Software and 2K Games showed off some Duke Nukem Forever gameplay in Amsterdam. Currently, online retailers are listing the game as being available on February 1st, 2011, but a Gearbox representative stated that date is only a placeholder. The real release date isn’t official yet. I’m just waiting for M. Night Shyamalan to show up at one of these cons and say Duke Nukem Forever was the greatest misdirection he ever pulled (and then we’ll all say any movie he made after Unbreakable was a “misdirection” and we’ll laugh and laugh).
Previously we only described most of this gameplay footage:
According to Joystiq, the playable demo includes several things you’d expect from Duke Nukem: a urination scene, kicking an alien’s eye through goalposts after defeating him, some swearing, and an implied BJ. Which would all be shocking to evening news commentators if this were 1997.
Now some of the possibly-NSFW video is online, and here’s a fun potentially fatal drinking game: do a shot every time Gearbox president Randy Pitchford cusses and do two shots any time he talks about what we’re going to be doing eventually but aren’t doing because he’s talking.
