Hail to the king, baby! We delve into the history of Duke Nukem’s video game life.
Hail to the king, baby! Our latest episode chronicles the history of steroid-loving Duke Nukem, and the ups and downs of his video game life – from 1991’s MS DOS platformer Duke Nukem to the looooonnngg-awaited disappointment that was Duke Nukem Forever in 2011.
Includes a tribute to Bill Paxton, featuring a clip of him from video game film The Gamechangers.
Morgan takes Tom back to the early 1990s and through some of his favourite Sega Mega Drive games, including Streets of Rage 2, Golden Axe and Sonic the Hedgehog. Tom also educates Morgan about the horrific Shaq Fu and how it may have influenced 50 Cent.
Beer choice: Innis & Gunn lager (reference – err, because there are some guns in Sega games)
Finally, we’re talking about video games in this episode! Tom takes Morgan through the world of nostalgic point and click games like Monkey Island, Broken Sword and The Longest Journey. And we moan about ridiculous puzzles involving goats, rubber duckies and moustaches.
