Ben Kuchera: To be honest, my first thought upon hearing this news was that it was a misprint of some kind, but when publications began getting official clarification stating that you'd be slapping the women on the butt while they were slung over your shoulders, I began to take it a little more seriously. Duke Nukem games have always treated women as objects to lust over, and the most interaction you had with women in prior games consisted of paying them to strip for you. Gaming has grown up, to some extent, and the gamers who grew up playing these games are also a little older, so it will be worth watching to see how this sort of humor plays with contemporary audiences. But there's no way around the fact that there's some offensive misogyny going on here. What's next, rebooting a movie like Blazing Saddles, complete with racial slurs?
