“I’m here to kick ass and chew bubblegum and I’m all out of bubblegum”
One of the great first person shooters for the PC, Duke Nukem 3D came out on this day in 1996. The story line for the game is pretty basic and surreal.
“Murderous aliens have landed in futuristic Los Angeles, and humans suddenly find themselves atop the endangered species list. The odds are a million-to-one, just the way Duke likes it!”
Along with 1992 Wolfenstein 3D, the game was a pioneer.
LazyGames had a nice review for the classic.
And what about the iconic catch phrase? “Chewing gum and kicking ass?” Turns out that was lifted from an 80s movie called They Live (which itself looks glorious).
Hang on, is that Roddy Piper? Well hello.
