Err i hate to say this but a gay robot in a duke game would be a bit bizzare

yeah i agree, it would be really out of place in the Duke Nukem world.

lol maybe a lesbian robot...

Why not a robotic version of beertender that follows him around all over the place and gives him a cold one when he needs it?
