10 Reasons to Love Duke Nukem10 Reasons to Love Duke Nukem4 years ago in Humor More Like This
10. He's a Hit with the Ladies
Duke Nukem has always been seen as the hero ready to rescue damsels in distress, though not with the politeness and charm that fairytales may have lead you to expect. He's in this rescuing game for one thing and one thing only, and generally he gets it.
9. He's Not Afraid of Anything
Duke Nukem is a badass, of that there is no doubt. But while this world is home to many badasses, few would be willing jump huge chasms, venture aboard alien space crafts and to take on beasts forty times their size. For our hero, this is all just a day's work.
8. He's been to the Moon and Back (and everywhere between)
After you've saved the world (over 12 times) the average day could seem pretty boring. Unless you're Duke Nukem, then your average day consists of
The People We HateThe people who hurt us, do they feel like we do?The People We Hate7 years ago in Other More Like This
Do they feel ugly and worthless in their skin like we do?
When they ache are their thoughts a bruised purple-blue
or are their brains always full of those rainbow-esque hues?
Do they suffer with the things that we're going through?
Or are they always indifferent to the sanity unglued?
Those people we hate, can we feel their pain?
Do we know of their nail-biting sorrow and shame?
Are we driven to cruelty by cruelty they gave?
Or is rage bred within, in its own iron cage?
And why do we hate?- Because we're not the same?
Or simply because they're unwilling to change?

Ciel was sitting in his large and dark office upstairs the huge mansion. He was staring at a blank spot somewhere in the room when suddenly he heard a knock on the large woodden door.
''Come in.'' He said.
When Ciel realized that it was Sebastian who was knocikng, he didn't want him to see that he was daydreaming or anything, but that he was doing some serious adult stuff, so he suddenly started to grab some kind of papers and documents that were on the table and pretended to bee deeply reading them.
''Young master, its late. Have you considered going to your room and having a rest, you can continue tomorrow.''
''I'm busy, I have to.. to do.. hmph.'' Ciel wanted to sound smarter and he really was kind of tired, but did not want to agree with his butler.

When red lights start flashing and alarms start sounding, it's never a good sign regardless of the make of the vehicle. It's a universal thing, a bold and frightening in-your-face reminder that you're going down and there's nothing you can do about it. It doesn't matter how many times you try the appropriate switches and buttons or curse the wretched machine carrying you; gravity's taken a liking to you, and all you can do is brace for impact and pray to come out alive.
These are the thoughts racing through his mind as he tries in vain to get the anti-gravity generator to start up again. A part of him knows it won't, and even if it did it would be too late. He's too close to the ground now and it's only getting closer as the seconds fly by. A part of him rationalizes that if he were actually something of a decent pilot, he may have been able to guide his ship into a somewhat gentler crash than the one it's headed for. But, no, he isn't that l

You never asked to be looked up to. You never asked to be aspiring. It's just something that naturally happens everywhere you go. And for some reason, it's always around the youth more than any other age group. Then again, that shouldn't be too surprising. They're the one's who seek the knowledge from veterans.
The road to achieving dreams was never meant to be easy. You should know. After all, you tell everyone the same thing. It's not going to be any different for yourself. Sometimes life challenges us at our weakest points. The very foundation you built your goals on: emotional support. A luxury to have these days, and a scarce
Taking a StandI'm fed up, done;Taking a Stand4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Tired of being the one
who takes the hit,
takes the shit.
Trying everything just to fit,
and maybe get,
a little ahead in this world.
To the world I'm nothing,
Yet I try, but I can't be trusting.
I'm done with this, not going to be bound,
Fuck it all, I'm done being pushed around.
I'm thinking clearly now, I need a friend.
Cause I'm on the outside looking in.
I need some help, before my head can spin.
Thinking back to how my life has been..
I've been so damn lost; never found,
Until I saw myself being pushed around.
Always being the one cast down,
but now it's my turn to wear the crown.
Done being broken
Misused and confused.
Passed around like a token,
bruised and refused.
I'm going to look up; Stop getting walked on
Gonna take a stand; You can bring it on.
Because I'm the one that's going to carry on.
Get up, and move on;
Because the old me, is dead and gone.

Swirling night falls.
A deep blue creeps over a sleepy town.
The church bell sounds and seems to say
"All is well 'till dawning day."
A brilliant crescent slips though the sky,
Guided by her sister stars.
The shining spheres calm those below
With cooling light, a tranquil glow.
A twisted shape stands guard,
Gnarled with the passage of time.
It's stood unfazed for a hundred years
Through human strife, pain and tears.

Not the midnight you'd expect, not the midnight lit by a golden harvest moon; a midnight the colour of champagne bubbles, of laughter, of comfortable silence. Not a midnight the colour of her hair in the firelight, her soft warmth and the promise of her smile; the colour of sun bleached sepia where memories are tinged by nostalgia, and you can almost see the morning approaching.
Not the black of a hopeless midnight, where you can't see the light. That's the colour of the night where the fog presses in on you, there's claustrophobia in the air and the bitter taste of fear and you feel all alone in the dark. That's the colour of the wild night sea, where you are a piece of flotsam floating on an invisible current, being dragged along to the shadows by the relentless tugging tide.
Not the cheap coloured midnight, with orange glowing streetlight, with cigarette smoke curling round make-believe faces. The colour of strong booze that clings to the breat

Sonic sort of paced a bit, and answered, " I-I couldn't do it. I couldn't handle him." He had his eyes closed, as if saying this were painful. "Then why keep him? Sonic, this isn't making any sense." Amy said, she put her head in her hands. Suddenly, a sharp pain shot through her right leg. "AAAAHHH!" She screamed. Shadow jumped up, but Amy shook her head. "Sit down Shadow, I'm fine...really!"

Words, Words, WordsIt was the end of the last normal day for Jonathan Fields. He had finished work at five and had come back to his modest apartment without a sense of accomplishment. Having fixed himself a hearty dinner of microwave soup and wrinkly carrot sticks, he sat down on his grey couch and turned on the TV. There wasn't anything on that really interested him, but he got some sparse enjoyment from complaining about the lack of content. He had almost reached that blessed hypnotic state the television could sometimes induce, when his cell phone bleeped and buzzed a tired tune that he had long since ceased to hear. He picked it up without looking at the name.Words, Words, Words4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Shadow nodded too. "Yea, he'll be all set. Want me to carry him?"
Amy laughed quietly. "Sure. You'll need the practice."

Duke Nukem ForeverDuke Nukem Forever has been in the works since 1997. Years of development hell. I've been waiting for it since I was about 10.

Why is this a big deal?
Why is this the "FPS that the world needs"?
Whats wrong with Call of Duty and Halo? (especially in terms of single player..)
They're too linear. Too simple. Too straightforward.
Don't get me wrong, I love Halo, but the reality is its just shoot a bunch of enemies while going through a straight path to the end. Duke Nukem 3D's levels (and other games such as DOOM) had complex levels, with puzzles to solve and multiple paths to complete the level. Hell the first level you could beat in 1 minute with a shortcut. There are over 24 levels in DNF and approximately 16~ hours of gameplay. That is like 2 and a half call of dutys. In one game. And this is only the singleplayer were talking about.
