Three years ago I said The King is Dead, when news emerged that not only was a Duke Nukem movie cancelled, so was another game. The franchise, you see, is at odds with the current direction of propaganda, i.e. Duke is a chauvinistic patriot.
Now though comes some good news. A movie is one again back in the oven. Even better, according to THR, it’s the guys who are behind Cobra Kai who are going to handle it. Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg are reportedly on board to produce. The King may be about to shit down the neck of the woke mob.
This is good news as this trio pretty much shoot things down the middle, without any politically woke bullshit. This is very important for the resurrection of The King. Even better, these guys seem to be pretty good at fan service. They appeared to have been raised on this shit, like we were, right around the same age bracket. Chances are, they know what this game series was about and loved it.
They brought back Terry Silver. Now they’re gonna do it with Duke.
Duke Nukem Forever was infamously savaged by soyboy gamer critics, who were traumatized by the manliness of the titular character and his wise crack one liners. We haven’t had another game since. One website, Kotaku, even referred to Duke Nukem as a ‘sex predator’ (LOL).
Let’s get going!
