The free “Duke Nukem” application [iTunes link] for the iPhone is one of the greatest spectacles to ever emerge to trample eardrums! The “Duke Nukem” video game franchise is legend, and now with the Duke coming to download on X-Box and Playstation a new generation is becoming versed in the ultimate badass!
Sure the fabled “Duke Nukem Forever” game has been in limbo for eleven years (and counting). Sure the audience that remembers fondly the sneering hope for humanity as being a flattop wearing bulk of a man with a ridiculous arsenal and a loud voice are now in their mid-twenties and up. But this is the Duke.
No one has a more recognizable voice, except maybe Mario. But Mario does not threaten: “I’ll rip your head off and sh*t down your neck.” The Duke epitomized gameplay for achieving mindless on-screen violence to live out tag and have fun. The catchphrases and quips, threats and jokes were the best part of the Duke.
Welcome the “Duke Nukem” App. None other than Duke Nukem himself does this soundboard application! There are dozens of Duke’s favorite sayings, like “My gun’s bigger than yours,” from all of his video games and the App is conveniently organized into Taunt, Threat, Funny, Die/Kill, Idle, Rare, Curse and many others.
It just does not get any better than this “Duke Nukem” App. “Hail to the king, baby!”
