Duke Nukem Forever, the sequel to one of the most celebrated games of the last 20 years, is now available in the UK for as little as £22.49 although as a digital download rather than a shrink wrapped version.
DNF costs £29.99 from Steampowered but £7.50 less at getgamesgo (opens in new tab); in comparison, you will be charged a whopping £39.69 at Play.com to play it on Microsoft's Xbox 360 gaming console.
Users will need a decent computer to play the game with the recommended system requirements as follows: An Intel Core 2 Duo clocked at 2.4GHz or a solid AMD Athlon X2 CPU, 2GB RAM, nVidia GeForce 8800 GTS or ATI Radeon HD 3850 with at least 512MB RAM and any recent flavour of Windows.
The game brings back the legendary Duke Nukem and alien hordes made up of Pig cops, alien shrink rays and alien bosses, all looking to divert him from his ultimate goals; save the world, save the babes and look like a bad-ass doing it.
And it is worth shopping around for bundles, for example, you can get a free version of Duke Nukem Forever when you purchase a selected triple or dual channel memory kit (opens in new tab) from Base.com starting at £57 for three 2GB Kingston HyperX T1 DDR3 1600MHz Non-ECC CL9 240pin memory modules; that's £8 each.
