Duke Nukem Forever Lets You Fling Poop At The Wall (Literally)

The ESRB are just as excited as the fans for Duke Nukem Forever. Just look at the long rating summary they gave it, making sure to point out dialogue highlights such as “If you supply the dancing, I’ll supply the pole.” Read on for the full summary:


“This is a first-person shooter in which players assume the role of Duke Nukem, an action hero who must save Earth from invading aliens. Players use pistols, rail guns, shotguns, explosives, and Duke’s bare hands to attack and kill the alien enemies. The majority of gameplay involves destroying these enemies in frenetic gun and laser battles in order to move on to the next section.


“Aliens are often decapitated or dismembered when hit, sending large splashes of blood across the ground, surrounding walls, and players’ screen. Some sequences depict more ‘over-the-top’ instances of violence: aliens getting stabbed in the head or impaled; a human soldier bursting into bloody gibs after being tossed through propeller blades. In one sequence, players have the ability to shoot human characters that are trapped in pod-like alien webbing; bodies explode into pieces upon impact.


“During the course of the game, players enter a strip-club level and view several topless dancers and receive lap dances. A couple of missions within this level require players to recover sex toys and pictures of topless women. A few sequences strongly imply sexual acts: two women appear to perform fellatio on the central character (e.g., raising their heads from his lap)—though there is no actual depiction of the sex act; Duke moans and leans up against the wall of a bathroom stall (furnished with a hole)—it is implied that a sex act (not depicted) occurs.


“The game also contains several sexual references and innuendo in the dialogue (e.g., ‘I have hungry—you have big egg ro’ for me, Duke,’ ‘If you supply the dancing, I’ll supply the pole,’ and ‘I’ll need something naughty to play with.’). Duke’s comments range from jokes about colon cleansing to several one-liners about sex and female body parts. Bathroom humor includes the ability to urinate in toilets or urinals and/or pick up feces from toilets and throw it against walls. Players can use both steroid pills and beer as power-ups; when beer is consumed, the screen temporarily blurs. The words ‘f**k,’ ‘sh*t,’ ‘c*ck,’ and ‘a*shole’ appear in dialogue and on-screen text.”


Content descriptors for Duke Nukem Forever include: Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Mature Humor, Nudity, Strong Language, Strong Sexual Content, Use of Drugs and Alcohol.

    “(e.g., ‘I have hungry—you have big egg ro’ for me, Duke,’ ‘If you supply the dancing, I’ll supply the pole,’ and ‘I’ll need something naughty to play with.’). ”

    I lol’d, hard.

  • The ESRB is the best marketing tool. Seriously.

  • Yusaku_Matsuda70s

    Now that’s a shit-load of spoilers right there…

    Sounds just like the ol’ Duke! Except as a child I laughed with him, but now I can only laugh at him. Still, as long as I’m entertained…

  • Operation Cock block? *sigh* Duke Nukem, you are the best at being what you are XD anyone that says otherwise needs to loosen up XD

  • Yukito

    So, rated E for Everyone, right?

  • Why are there so many content descriptors? It should just have one: It’s Duke Nukem.

  • Croix

    ESRB: They do a wonderful thing, evaluating games for the sake of worried parents and such, and are a rather useful tool, for those concerned about what their children are playing to draw on.

    But here’s what I wonder; aside from the altruistic side of what they do, I wonder if they really get a kick out of being able to preview games way before most everyone else gets to. I mean, it’s easy to say this not being that involved with it, but with all due respect to the ESRB, at times it sounds like a pretty sweet job.

    • rock1644

      They do not actually play the games they rate, they watch a video of showcasing various parts of the game and determine a rating based on that.

      • Joanna

        I’d love to get paid for doing that! It actually sounds like a lot of fun. But I love picking things apart (like movies).

  • DanteJones

    That’s odd. It could just be me, but I didn’t see anything in the ESRB about mentions of having balls of steel.

    • Dude, that comment is made of win.

  • YoungTeeth

    I like how this is considered to be on the same level as Ar Tonelico Qoga. People are weird.

    • Isn’t it?

      • Joanna

        Well Qoga, from my understanding, only has nudity and sexual innuendo, whereas this game has extreme violence and gore, which should, theoretically, put it above Qoga. Honestly, I don’t see nudity as a big deal…violence on the other hand, especially gory violence, disturbs me and creeps me out…that is of course my personal opinion.

    • Joanna

      Got an M rating? I’d thought it would be AO since it has quite a lot of gore and nudity. Weird indeed.

  • This and bulletstorm are the FPS’ that I’m looking forward to play to, although i haven’t acquired bulletstorm yet

    • SolidusSnake

      Bulletstorm is amazing violent fun, I HIGHLY recommend it. They just nailed the fun factor on this one. Aside from S.T.A.L.K.E.R. (which is really survival horror, anyway), I haven’t had this much fun with a FPS since Painkiller at least. Perfect controls, weird and effective weapons, great gimmicks like the leash, a system that rewards you for killing your enemies in ridiculously OTT ways, hilarious story chock full of juvenile humor, an environment that’s as deadly as your guns (for the enemies at least!) and the sheer, visceral excitement of literally shotgunning your enemies into a wall of spikes (VOODOO DOLL!), what more could you ask for?

      It’s shooter heaven. Also, Serrano is the funniest mass murderer ever.

      • Sorry for the late reply… Yeah, I tried Bulletstorm’s demo and was amazed. I’ll probably pick it up once the price drops… I’ve got several priorities before Bulletstorm. Ar Tonelico and Yakuza awaits me! XD

  • darkfox1

    This game is gonna be awesome

  • Ah, Duke, stay classy. lol

  • MisterDandylion

    I’m in…

    I mean…


    That’s a hardcore summary! :O

  • Phoenix_Apollo

    I wonder how many people have been waiting for this day? It’s like the last benchmark before it gets released.

  • Hahaha, 7 descriptors. Swag!

  • PrinceHeir

    “If you supply the dancing, I’ll supply the pole,’ and ‘I’ll need something naughty to play with.”

    lol duke’s funny as ever :P

  • neocatzon

    for someone who’s new to duke nukem, the review sold me XD

  • Kai2591

    Take it easy, as they say. lol.

    They’re only ‘implied’ acts anyway~

  • So that will be a 12+ rating for it then.
