Duke Nukem Forever

Six survivors of development limbo

Bad games. We’ve seen plenty since this site started in 2001, but in this day and age of big budgets and high expectations they’ve started to become few and far between. Godzilla on PS4 was the most recent, and it’s fair to say that many were surprised by...

Brink and you’ll miss it
