The Duke. Men want to be him, women want to be with him. The manliest of men, the ultimate male role model. He’s been kicking ass on GOG.com for years, but on December 31 2015, Duke has to step out to get more bubble gum.

It’s a world of pornography, violence, and candid obscenity. Duke’s world. And we are entranced. By the campy risque, and by the unadulterated joy of Duke’s violent adventures and one-liners.

Then, for years Duke rides the hype-train: in 1997, we behold his Balls of Steel – a pinball game warmly welcomed for its smooth, realistic physics and plenty of Duke on the side. In the year 2002, Duke goes back to basics in Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project, a modern 3D sidescrolling platformer that’s nothing if not a fun and mindless pleasure.
