Duke Nukem Forever 'dances on the line of decency'

Rating boards 'aren't approving of this,' says Pitchford

Gearbox's Duke Nukem Forever "dances on the line of decency" and could see publisher Take-Two getting some bother from the various ratings boards.

That's according to Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford, who told press in London this morning not to film a new trailer for the game as "we don't want our friends at Take-Two to be punished for our creativity."


And punished they'd likely be; the trailer shown in London featured bare breasts, strippers, gratuitous swearing, the word 'f***ing' in massive letters and a giant alien getting pummelled in the genitals by Duke himself.

And if that wasn't enough to annoy PEGI, the clip included g-strings, impossibly domed buttocks and stripper poles. Oh, and Duke being pleasured by two women at once.

As you might expect, Pitchford told press he feared that the ESRB and PEGI would likely "not exactly be approving of this".

At the same event it was claimed that 3D Realms boss George Broussard lost "20 to 30 million dollars" of his own money on Duke Nukem Forever.
