Remember when Lara Croft and Duke Nukem were popular in the mid 90's? Lara Croft is still here and is still very prominent. Duke Nukem... what happened? Was his game this gen that bad? Never played it.
i actually really liked dnf but i can understand why some people don't it could have been alot better gearbox said they were gonna make another they said they didn't buy the ip just to release 1 game that was i think 95% done when they got a hold of it so yeah duke nukem still has 1 more shot also pretty sure they said that its gonna be a reboot rather than a sequel
Funny bit of trivia, that phrase means they got hitched / married in the olden days, and was a reference to how people take a knee when proposing - hence, the "took an arrow to the knee" bit. Duke definitely didn't take an arrow to the knee.
Anyway, I'd agree that Duke Forever killed the franchise off. While they had a few games between Duke 3D and Duke Forever, it wasn't enough to keep it relevant - and the last game released was, I believe, Manhattan Project, which I don't think did it any favors as they went back to a 2d-platformer setup for it after being in a 3d first-person shooter setup (but I could be wrong on that, and it could have gotten a great reception - memory's a bit hazy on it.)
If they did reboot it, I'd love to see them go back to Duke's roots with Dr. Proton and regular plain old parodies of things - Energizer bunnies and whatnot. Aliens only came into the Duke Nukem fold in the second game, when Duke got abducted from a talk show about how he kicked Proton's butt. --- Stupid, stupid rat creatures!!!
@theshoveller What sort of a stupid kid you think I am?
Some people think it talks about an actual arrow into an actual knee - like an old war wound. Not directed at you necessarily, but more of taking what you said to springboard a bit of trivia I thought was interesting. --- Stupid, stupid rat creatures!!!
