Duke Nukem 3D's Sega Mega Drive port is finally available worldwide.
I've lost track of how many times I've played through the opening chapters of Duke Nukem 3D. It's a game that still delights me today, over 20 years since its original release, and also a game that makes me cringe with embarrassment for the easily amused adolescent twerp I was. It somehow still manages to represent both the best of what games can be, and the worst of gaming's lazy vices.
Ah, 1996. The year of Jerry Maguire, the Spice Girls and Duke Nukem 3D. And while we won't judge you if you decide to stick on 'Wannabe' and dance around your room whilst bellowing "Show me the money!" into your Nokia 8110, a better way to step back in time 19 years this evening would be to tune in to our livestream from 5pm GMT and watch Ian get down and dirty with Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition on PS3.
The PlayStation 3 and Vita version of 3D Realms' Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition launches on 13th January 2015 in North America and 14th January 2015 in Europe.
The Megaton Edition of the first-person shooter includes enhanced versions of Duke Nukem 3D: Atomic Edition and three expansion packs, as well as the original version of the game released in 1996.
It launched on PC back in March 2013, published by Devolver Digital.
Duke Nukem IP-holder Gearbox is suing the series' original developers - 3D Realms, Interceptor Entertainment, and Apogee Software - for developing the recently announced PC and PS4 title Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction.
