New Duke Nukem Forever trailer is full of everything that makes Duke the man

As hard as it is to believe, Duke Nukem Forever will be on store shelves in a matter of weeks. Soon the cigar-chomping, film-quoting tough guy will forcibly enter all our systems, as the age of Duke begins again, or at least that’s what his publisher hopes. Don’t believe it’s actually going to come out? Will this new extended and uncut version of DNF’s TV ad convince you?

A truncated version of this trailer will premier tonight on the season finale of show Archer on cable channel FX, but we got our hands on the complete version a little early. After such a long ride, it’s hard to believe that Duke is close to coming, so close that a publisher would actually pay for a televised commercial for it. It simply must be ready this time right? Right?

By the way, if you aren’t watching Archer you are stupid. It's seriously one of the funniest shows on TV with one of the best voice casts a cartoon has ever had. Just watch the below trailer to get a small taste:

Where were we? Oh right Duke. Yeah, that new trailer is pretty nice too.

Um… the end?

    Love how 90's that song is. Gearbox knows what they're doing...except when it comes to building attractive female characters. Also (first time doing this but necessary) Recaptcha: tween frillbilly

    Dear Mr. Gilbert, I listen to Tdar, and I agree with both your stance on Family Guy, which you voice on Tdar, as well as your stance stated here on Archer. Rock on, gmknoble

    I'll tell you, from the Borderlands trailers to this and all of the Duke trailers...Gearbox knows how to make an awesome trailer. From the music to the action segments to the breaks...everything is just perfect. Duke!!!!!!!!!!

    You may want to take a personal day Hank because you're flying in the danger zone.

    "Sure kid, maybe you'll grow up to be as awesome as me" Why, oh WHY, did they stop showing Archer in the UK!?
  • Rockmotron9000 - April 22, 2011 8:32 a.m.

    wow i've never seen Archer before, but i'm genuinely tempted to pick it up after seeing that trailer. i assume there's somewhere on their site where i can mention your name, so you can get your commission, right Hank?

    @fixer911 "Battleflag" by Lo Fidelity Allstars. From 1997. Appropriate, no? ;-)
  • fixer911 - April 22, 2011 3:34 a.m.

    Who does that song in the commercial?
  • Aletheon - April 22, 2011 2:12 a.m.

    Archer is funny. Duke is manly, which we need more of in this pansy world of political correctness.
  • kingsmikefan - April 22, 2011 2:06 a.m.

    Henry, I love you for loving Archer. My favorite show (tied with Justified).
  • Mamudo - April 22, 2011 2:06 a.m.

    Ahhh two of my favorite things Duke Nukem and Archer in one Gamesradar article.
  • LTS - April 22, 2011 1:33 a.m.

    "Duke is close to coming..." Yep. Even Gordon Freeman came early (In Half-Life 2... which was announced somewhere around the time DNF was..) Duke is the king
  • p0wnd - April 22, 2011 1:29 a.m.

    Why in every trailer does it have to show him peeing?
  • mastersword369 - April 22, 2011 1:26 a.m.

    Thank you Hank, now I remember how much I love Archer.
  • qurao - April 22, 2011 1:26 a.m.

    At 0:15 there's a cursor on-screen at the top edge of the picture. Way to go Gearbox ;)
  • GR_HenryGilbert - April 22, 2011 12:46 a.m.

    Why I am sure I don't know what you mean *suggestive wink*
  • Pantas - April 22, 2011 12:43 a.m.

    "After such a long ride, it’s hard to believe that Duke is close to coming" I see what you did there, Gilbert.
  • shorty06 - April 22, 2011 12:35 a.m.

    Archer is a good choice for showing Mr. Nukem. They have similar personalities, see?
