wow...this guy sounds sooo "excited" describing the game. OMG i almost started bleeding from my ears he sounds like Bill Frickin Lumburg from Office Space. Thank god Gearbox saved Duke from these retarded burnouts

It's amazing how little they changed from the DS version in 2 years time. They didn't see any issues in these builds? Such a shame the PSP version got canceled too...

I think this guy is the reason Duke Nukem Forever was in development for 12 years :\

"gamerrd i am disapointed,duke nukem is on FPS not on third person,i hope them cancel it and them create a real duke nukem game" ..Two out of three duke nukems I played where third person though? Duke Nukem is Duke Nukem, not specifically first or third person imo :P

The way he talked about everything and the lack of anything more than a tech demo to show off makes me not too optimistic. Hopefully the psp version will be awesome because the psp deserves a great game. Even if it's a rated teen Duke game.

It's definitely coming out Fall 2009? Huh? Well, there hasn't been any post-apocalyptic events, so where is it, Terry? It's Fall and now it's slated for 2010. :( I can see this getting canned, sadly.

Duke nukem with double jump?... its look like a generic 2D-3D EASY and REPETITIVE sidescroller for the DS, i was expecting good things about this game based on ign interview... but now im disapointed.

Its great the the handhelds are getting games like this. I will buy the whole trilogy for my PSP. Devs should do this more often, build handheld games from the ground up instead of porting. I also like that it has the same story with different gameplay for each handheld. Bring on more cross platform exclusives for the handheld market!!! I love it!

I really hope they don't screw up first person mode; I think sometimes devs try too much with the controls. Move w/ face buttons, aim w/ analog, or vice versa, with customizable sensitivity, and no lock-on PLZ! god, i hate lock-on lol

Although I like Nukem's setting, this looks bad.

"Its time to kick ass and chew bubblegum... And I'm all out of gum." Both game's look decent. Hopefully we'll see some improvements on the DS title as time goes by. Nice to have you back, Duke. ;)
