As we get closer to the much-anticipated release of Duke Nukem Forever, it's inevitable to be fed more and more details on the game's features. Today, four DNF multiplayer modes have been revealed: Dukematch, Team Dukematch, Capture the Babe and Hail to the King. While the 'Dukematch' gamemodes should be self explanatory and ' …
Misogynistic Duke Nukem SHOKER!
Duke Nukem features misogynistic twists!
In other news, the sky is blue.
You know, though I have long bored of FPS's, I might try this game just for its gleeful male chauvinism. Really, it's so over-the-top, no-one could take it seriously for a moment – right?
Daily Mail readers will take it very seriously indeed.
On the other hand - why do the developers think its a good idea to have to slap the babe? Are they all virginal morons who spent too much time on YouPorn?? Doesn't seem to be any excuse for it really, just headline grabbing marketing shite.
The Daily Hate? Nah, I await the Currant Bun getting in a strop over it.
"It makes young boys objectify women, seeing them as weak and little more than sex objects. Innit?" Many 23,36,28,34 (in pink thong).
Got nothing against the idea of a misogynistic lead myself ("Bond" anyone?) What would be cool would be a mod where you could have "Daisy Duke" Nukem run around and save the blokes. Would satisfy the misandrists out there.
Then a further mod where "Daisy Duke" saves the girls and where Duke saves the boys. The pink pound buys games too y'know.
I draw the line at either of the dukes saving sheep. That's just sick.
Check the engine.
Odds are it'll use one of the more-recognized gaming engines, which means modding for one's...sexual preference should only be a matter of putting the relevant material, models, voices, etc. together. Once it's out and understood, it should be fair game to create an "Atom Annie" or whatever you like. And for a "Capture the Babe", how about a "Drag the Dude," instead...and while I can picture slapping a guy around like a dog, I think it would be funnier to...go downstairs.

Cue "camper" jokes in 5, 4, 3..
'"Daisy Duke" Nukem'
You, Sir, owe me a new keyboard!!!
The reason this idea bothers me is that if they are still in school now, they were probably born when the original Duke Nukem 3D was released. Indeed, not only is the Duke old enough to be their father, given what we know of his character there's a good chance he actually is their father.
Maybe the "capture the girl" game will be more about Duke trying to persuade his wayward teenage daughter to come home because she has been grounded. Wholesome stuff.
"He thought ripping the aliens a new one was tough, but now Duke Nukem has to deal with the one problem he can't solve with guns: Fatherhood."
Perhaps he'll learn some valuable lessons about gender equality along the way...
rock and a hard place
what if the captured babe had meekly surrended to being thrown over Duke's shoulder? Not much of a role model either.
Slapping sounds a bit much - why doesn't it just give her a quick shake - but so long as people remember it's just a game (and you shouldn't try this at home kids) perhaps the sky will stay up for a little longer.
Dukin it out in New York
Wasn't that the original game. And misogynism rules in any Duke Nukem game. It's the whole point of it.
Murder is worse than "slap[ping] her around a bit", and yet it is the slapping that raises eyebrows.
...is game over.
Slapping is just an excuse for revenge which lives on.
Well of course gamers won't see anything wrong with this, ...
... "It's all just a big joke, amirite?"
And then they wonder why they can never get girlfriends!
