Duke Nukem Forever delayed one last time

Publisher bumps Duke Nukem Forever release date back a month, says 'Duke Never Comes Early'.

Poor Duke, he just can't catch a break. He's been delayed once again. Well, for a month--from May 6 back to June 14, so just after E3 2011.

"Duke Never Comes Early" reads 2K's press release, and I'll leave you to make what you will of that.

As for the rest, 2K president Christopher Hartmann says the company's on track "to deliver a laugh-out-loud, politically incorrect experience that people will talk about for years to come," promising the eleventh hour hold-up "won't take another 15 years."

The company won't say why it's delaying the game, but we can probably surmise it's about last minute bug squashing and a final polish. We can hope, anyway. The last thing anyone needs is for this thing to ship bug-riddled.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
