We end the week with this kick ass game called Duke Nukem 3D. Developed and published by 3D Realms, this would unfortunately be their last release before the the company slowly declined to what it is today. While the game did gain some controversy like many other first-person shooters did at the time, that did not stop the game from becoming a big commercial hit at the time. Duke Nukem 3D was very well received at its release and even to this day, the game still maintains an iconic position in the history of first-person shooters. I had no problems getting the game to run with the high resolution pack, so I highly recommend you to read on so you can give the game a try.
** Please note that I will be taking a one week break starting next week. I will resume the BPGE series on January 3rd.
As I mentioned in the video, I played the game using a program called EDuke combined with a high resolution pack. Since this game is still being commercially sold, you will need to obtain legal copy along with the other two packs I used in the video.
