Working on DLC for a game that completely sucked is a gigantic waste of time, but for some reason developer Gearbox Software continue to churn out Duke Nukem Forever content. The new batch of DLC dubbed Hail to the Icons Parody Pack contains three new modes, four new multiplayer maps, as well as new weapons. And considering there are probably all of ten people on the planet still playing this game’s multiplayer, I really feel Gearbox should concentrate their efforts elsewhere.

Why is no one listening to me anymore?

But if you are one of the very few people out there interested in this DLC, here are the three new modes this DLC brings to the table:

Freeze Tag provides some of the most fun team gameplay in Duke Nukem Forever.  Players cooperate to freeze and shatter their opponents in succession for huge point streaks and combos. See who can hold on to the babe the longest in Hot Potato and play free-for-all Duke style in Hail to the King.

Call of Duke – Duke engages in modern combat in a war-torn city. Foes don’t stand a chance against the Duke when he spams the map with the N00b T00b

Sandpit – Players take the role of mini-Duke in a giant sandbox with two bases at either end made out of children’s toys. This map features Sticky Grenades.

Inferno – Time machine engage! Duke does combat in a hellish landscape of lava and teleporters. Who turned on the 16-bit graphics, and more importantly, where did this DFG come from?

2Forts1Bridge – Hats? Duke doesn’t need no stinking hats. Give him a minigun and he’ll beat off all comers.

Yeah mocking Call of Duty and Team Fortress 2 makes it all better.
