The time has come for the Duke Nukem Forever demo, get ready to tear it up finally.

Duke Nukem Forever demo has been dated for Jun. 3rd after years of waiting. Gearbox software took the reigns from the former developer 3D Realms after more than ten years of dithering and made what could be the blockbuster game of the summer.

Players have been waiting for 1997 for the sequel to what was at the time a Doom 3d competitor and even conqueror among some circles. Duke Nukem took the first person shooter out for some drinks to the local gentlemans club and made it rain bullets on that alien behind. All that was needed was a sequel to cement Duke Nukems legacy in the pantheon of awesome video games which include aliens and loose moraled women.

Then after years of saying Duke Nukem would be released “when it’s finished” the publisher refused to give any more funds to the 12 year labor of love. Unfortunately for 3d Realms but fortunately for anyone who would like to play Duke Nukem Forever in their lifetime gearbox actually decided to finish the game and release it this summer.

Duke Nukem Forever releases for the Xbox, PS3, and PC June 14th and comes in the regular and “Balls of Steel” collectors edition. The extra expensive ballsy edition includes awesome trinkets like playing cards, a comic book, another statue of a dude to show how much you like statues of dudes.
