Recovering My Childhood – Piece #1

Duke Nukem N64

“Come get some!”

Duke Nukem 64 has been acquired.  If you’ve been following any of my recent posts, you may have seen the one right here that explains how I lost all my old N64 games.  Duke Nukem 64 was one of the games that I loved as a child.

Its back and better than ever.  It took a long time for me to adjust to the controls but once I got the hang of it I was blasting those alien scum left and right.  Its just tricky aiming with my left hand when all modern games use the right hand.  The other controls were all pretty easy to get used to as well so no complaints there.

This game is just so cool.  Its the only Duke Nukem game that I ever owned but I can see why people were so amused/offended by The Duke.  The game was pushing its limits even in Nintendo’s censored version.  I probably shouldn’t have been allowed to play this game when I was 11, but I don’t think many adults would find the game all that bad.  Especially considering what we see in games and movies today.

I’m currently waiting for the memory card (controller pak) I ordered to arrive before I get too far into the game.  For now I’ve just been playing around with the first few levels  and trying to fight some of the Duke Bots in the multi-player part of the game.  It just as fun as I remember and I can’t wait to convince someone else to play with me.

After I receive my memory card I hope to play through the game and post my final thoughts on here.  Until then, I have a few more things to work on . . .
