    1. -> 2. -> 3. -> 4.

    1. "Your face, your ass, - what's the difference?!"

    2. "You're an inspiration for birth control"

    3. "Hmm, don't have time to play with myself."

    4. "You wanna dance?"

    I probably still have an original boxed copy of the Atomic Edition someplace but I might have to grab this just for the 113 free Duke ring tones!:p

    I never played this until it came out on iPad. Weird.

    The cheesy graphics only served to make me miss Descent more.

    If you can get past the graphics, it is still fun to play.

    It's time for me to kick some ass and chew some bubble gum...and no, I'm NOT all out of gum either. Plenty of both on the way!

    Thanks GOG!

    Funniest game I ever played. Graphics are very outdated though.

    A shame you can't change the controls. I'd like to strafe, the keys are somewhat nasty placed though.

    You can save at any time though, so it's still more modern than so many of the ****** consol crap games of today.

    5. "Shake it, baby!"

    6. "Damn.. I'm lookin' GOOOOODD!"

    7. "It's time to kick ass and chew bubblegum... and I'm all out of gum."

    8. "Damn. Those alien b******s are gonna pay for shootin' up my ride!"

    9. "Damn! That's the second time those alien b******s shot up my ride!"

    And my personal favourite....

    10. "This is KTIT! KTIT! playing the breast....errr... the best tunes in town!"

    Love that game. I'm all over this like fat tick on a lazy dog when I get home tonight.

    BL.

    I bought this for $5 for my iPhone a few years ago... Controls made it completely unplayable. For free on my Mac I guess I'll give it another shot. My parents didn't neglect me, they made me play the relatively mild Doom (loved that, by the way.)

    I played this game as a kid. Man, the graphics look so horrible on a 27" screen.

    Deal Ends on Friday Dec 14th 14:59 GMT

    http://www.gog.com/news/holiday_gift_duke_nukem_3d_pcmac

    The article you linked to has the end date wrong. The GOG winter sale ends Jan. 3rd, but this is a special promotion ending earlier.

    They also have another special promotion (not free, but even higher discount for the bundle) on on classic Bullfrog games (Syndicate, Dungeon Keeper, Theme Hospital, Magic Carpet, etc ...), many of which have Mac versions without needing to port them yourself (Boxer-DOSBox).

    http://www.gog.com/promo/bullfrog_favourites

    Sale ends in roughly 12 hours.

    ----------

    There is an open source engine called "eDuke" which might improve things:

    Caveat: I've not used it myself.

    I used to play DOOM all the time with my buddies on a dial-up 14.4 modem. Those were the good ol days!

    I'll be sure to get this before the January 3rd deadline. This game brings back so many memories. :D

    But what's up with the heavy system requirements for both Mac and Windows?


    Practically 2GHz CPU and 1GB of RAM for both systems! :eek: I remember the Win 95 beige box that I installed Duke Nukem 3D on as a kid didn't have anything close to that and it ran the game just fine. It was something like a 200MHz Pentium II CPU, 128MB of RAM, a 1MB GPU, and less than 1GB HDD. :eek: I still have my original Duke Nukem 3D box and disk somewhere. I should dig it out and post it up on here! :D

    30" ACD never looked so bad.

    You can, but you have to do it before launching the actual game. Just open it and click Game Setup.
