Usually, games are cancelled for a reason. While eagerly awaiting fans may not like that development, there’s not much they can do about it after the fact aside from signing (mostly) ignored online petitions. After the longest 15 years ever for fans, however, the Duke finally returns and in full HD action. Although some may rejoice, perhaps Duke Nukem Forever is an omen that games cancelled are best if they stayed cancelled.
An abundance of sex appeal throughout this week’s releases, as we see the 3D jiggling mechanics of Dead or Alive: Dimensions and Duke Nukem’s return in Critical Mass. Not to worry for those of you who may be a bit more modest; feel free to pop in Kung Fu Panda 2 and game with the young’uns who the previous games for whom the previous games may not be appropriate. Personally, I’m dying to do a bit more rally racing myself.
