Duke Nukem Forever is a stale, boring first person shooter which borrows heavily from the butt of its own jokes. Its mechanics contradict its attitude at every turn, but I suppose contradicting itself is the one thing that Duke Nukem Forever really is good at. I respect Randy Pitchford and his team for seeing this project through after such a disastrous development period, but it’s such a misguided, controversy-baiting attempt at fan service that I can’t have any respect for the game itself.
This Duke Nukem Forever Demo that offers us some first impressions of the game was presented in Amsterdam and you can see for yourself just how excited people were. And they had all the reasons to be excited, since the Duke knows a lot of things and seems to be just as cool as ever. Here are some things that we’ve seen in the Duke Nukem Forever Demo: – It’s time to kick ass and chew bubble gu. nd I’m all outta gum – classic catch phrases are back, alongside new ones! – Duke Nukem takes like forever to pe. You can draw obscene things on whiteboards
Another first for KTM is the engine being a stressed member of the chassis. WP split-function forks are non-adjustable (like the old 690) and KTM worked alongside a Spanish company to furnish the 790 with brakes. For the vertically challenged amongst us, the standard seat height is 825mm and a low seat option is 805mm. We spent the morning carving through the mountain roads of Gran Canaria on the Scalpel before heading to Maspalomas circuit to explore the 790’s limitations – and do some skids and wheelies. KTM wanted the most agile bike in the naked middleweight class and it’s safe to say they’ve succeeded. It steers with unfathomable pace, despite a very long wheelbase and it soon answered the most pertinent pre-ride question I had. Does the 790 carry those inherent Duke motard-based manners, or is it more of a midi supernaked? Well, thankfully, it’s the latter.
Guitarist Adam Rafferty made his auspicious debut with First Impressions in 1993, at the age of 23. He is backed by the working trio of his mentor, pianist Mike Longo (with Paul West on bass and Ray Mosca on drums). A bebopper to the core, Rafferty exhibits chops and intelligence but not quite the confident touch that he would develop in the ensuing years.
We didn’t exactly ask for a Super Duke, but I sure as hell wasn’t going to complain. It’s like looking a gift horse in the mouth, only this gift horse is a champion-winning thoroughbred.
First impressions: KTM's 2018 790 Duke. We swap the 690 Duke for its bigger brother. AFTER a wet, rainy and cold ride North (I say North, but I only mean to Silverstone) this morning I swapped my KTM 690 Duke for one 100cc bigger, and a whole lot more powerful. Despite sharing the same name, the two are chalk and cheese. And that isn’t at all a bad thing.
