The crazy $5 deal on Duke Nukem Forever at Best Buy has come and gone, but it’s not like the game will cost you very much anywhere else if you still find yourself morbidly interested in how that project turned out.

Once you’ve done that, you may not be interested in playing more, but, well, the option is available, as 2K Games today announced The Doctor Who Cloned Me, a single-player add-on set in Area 51.

The Doctor Who Cloned me costs $9.99, launches everywhere on December 13, and includes new enemies, bosses, weapons, achievements and additional places to interact with for an ego boost. There are also four multiplayer maps--Sky-High, Command, Drop Zone, Biohazard--to run around in.

Nice...lol/....so this DLC costs the same amount that many retailers are selling the full game for...good luck with that 2K.

2K should man up and gift this to the people who they duped and got to pay their hard earned money for this garbage.

Maybe they would have to charge 80 MSP for the XBOX version, but anymore than that is just kicking their customers while they are down.

I'll get it. I'm one of those who enjoyed the game, that is, on PC. I think it nailed what Duke 3d was all about.

This being single-player content actually developed by Gearbox has me infinitely more interested in this than I otherwise would be.

If this was entirely made by Gearbox then it might be quite as bad as the game itself.

This game got a lot more hate than it deserved. Provided all the shit it went through I am surprised it even was released.

Yup; 3/4ths of the Borderlands DLC was actually pretty good (especially Knoxx).

Is it possible that, since this may have been developed completely in-house, gearbox has made something great?

I'll play it. Bought duke on launch day and have no regrets its not nearly as bad as people make it out to be especially if your playing the PC version like god intended.

I don't want that game on my steam account. I loved DN3D back in the day, and I don't want to tarnish that memory with this piece of crap.

A part of me is deeply concerned that maybe this is one of the levels that was half-finished when Gearbox got the rights to the game, and it didn't make the final cut for the retail version of the game. Then, a few months after the game comes out, and it still hasn't sold nearly enough to break even, 2K is desperate to make a few more bucks, and asks Gearbox to quickly spruce up one of the levels they cut. And this is that level.

I hope I'm proven wrong, and that it's entirely new content, but making entirely new content seems like such a waste of resources for a game that just about everybody hates.

I enjoyed Duke Nukem Forever, I'll get this DLC. I didn't like Bastion, not one bit, but you don't see me complaining about the new DLC for that game. Live and let live.

To be fair, this will be recently created content. Forever's biggest drawback was how out of date a load of the gameplay mechanics are (non-obvious map design, jump pads etc) so something that was made for this generation should be better... I guess. Hopefully the writing won't be as shitty.

Well I just bought DNF for $5.43 so we'll see, I doubt it though, I am doubting I will even make it through DNF.

I'm actually looking forward to this. The story is a throwback to the first game's storyline.

Given that many of the problems with DNF came from it's lineage, it is theoretically possible that this DLC will actually be OK.

You'll start at Area 51 and make your way up through areas 52-69 no doubt.

even if this DLC actually turns out to be Gearbox-caliber DLC, I'm not spending any money on DNF solely to get access to this.

You already dived deep into the shit pile. Might as well continue digging.

I'll bite. I enjoyed DNF. That's right I ENJOYED IT!. Let's note I also played it on the PC where a majority of the pop in's shit load times and other garbage that bogged the game down wasnt present. That's what happens when you play the PC version of a PC game I guess.

Either way people love to shit on this game when there are many worse shooters out there.

You liked DNF and hated Bastion? what's it like to be so backwards?

#42 Edited by Goblin (174 posts) -

Wow, so many haters... I actually really enjoyed DNF because it reminded me, both mechanically and stylistically, of games like Sin, Gunman Chronicles, the first Turok games, etc. I also feel that it is way more self-aware than the GB crew et al. are willing to give it credit for.

That being said, I do hope this add-on brings more gameplay and humor that is genuinely good, even by today's standards:)

Sweet. I'll repurchase Duke for $5 on eBay so I can check this out. Yeah, the game was dated and a little clunky, but it was fun.
