Duke Nukem, L.A. Noire Released

Fifteen years in the waiting, Duke Nukem Forever was finally released on June 14th, making it the Chinese Democracy of video games. And like the GnR album, the game hasn't lived up to the waiting time according to critics and fans alike. One noted flaw in the game is the ridiculously long loading times. Still, there is something to be said for anything that wallows so shamelessly in politically incorrect humor, and the usage of Billy Squier's "The Stroke" in commercials is the best use of the song this side of Will Ferrell figure-skating as Chazz Michael Michaels.

One game that has lived up to the hype: L.A. Noire, a game set in the city of angels during the '40s by Rockstar Games. No word yet on the follow-up to Grand Theft Auto IV...
