Millions await release of Duke Nukem Forever

Millions await release of Duke Nukem Forever
The wildly politically incorrect computer game from the 90’s is set to release a new version in May – Feminists beware!

Duke Nukem, the game famous for killing aliens and running around with scandal clad women has been updated with graphics set for the 21st century and even greater offense. Throwing political correctness to the wind, the game takes on many political and social issues. "One of the things that's been brought up to me is that there's just a random cigarette machine and one of the packs says, 'Fags'," said Gearbox Software President Randy Pitchford to Eurogamer. "What it's doing is it's pointing out when this word used to mean something else. It's a stupid videogame. They're just jokes, and I think everybody gets it."Speaking to feminists who have previously been outspoken in their opposition to the game, Pitchford said it is admirable to promote women’s rights, and groups should use Duke Nukem to their advantage. “If anyone can better our world through the use of anything and if Duke is a tool to help them do that, that's fine.” He remarked. “If some feminist organization that is doing a great job advocating women's rights worldwide, which I think is really important, can get some advantage by using Duke…go for it.”The updated Duke Nukem Forever is set to hid stores in the United States on May 3.
