The long anticipated follow up on the well received Duke Nukem 3D seems to have at last hit the shelves this last week and people everywhere you go purchased the video game the day of its launch. Duke Nukem Forever promised to end up being even more action packed, comedy filled, attractive video game than its predecessors but has it delivered?Duke’s macho-man, chauvinistic perspective along with his witty wise cracks really helped propel him to icon status and has been perhaps among the only reasons this game sold any copies. The designers were able to make the video game boring. On occasion it practically feels like a chore to play with all the constant driving a vehicle around and the dullness is only sometimes broken up by way of the gory sci-fi shooting we have now come to really enjoy. On occasion Duke Nukem Forever is definetly several different half-finished concepts thrown together in a very weak effort to make a blockbuster video game. The levels tend to be brief, the driving drags on and on, and just when you believe you’re done you will get to drive a lot more. All of the driving wrecks the movement of the game which looks choppy at best. One minute you go from jumping around a level for some time only seeing a few enemies to dispatch then you’re inside a truck leaping off of ramps. All of the driving is simply made worse by the fact that the artwork are repeated time and time again.
Think you’ve seen that canyon in the past? You most definitely have! You went by it a few kilometers back before you stalled out and had to search for gas so you might do you know what, drive! Too much time is centered on the boring, monotonous tasks in the game. The puzzles to resolve will often be endless and unengaging. Workers must have recognized the puzzles seemed like this as they even made Duke comment on just how he dislikes all of them. The idea was halfway decent though the execution appeared dull as well as simple. On the whole the game is a fail. Not only did the video game fail as part of the Duke Nukem series, but also as a separate game it wasn’t fun. The team took a cherished symbol and transformed him into a unexciting and boring muscle-bound maniac. We could hope should they elect to create another game within the series that it’s going to be similar to the old models and with any luck , redeem themselves following this ordeal. This game tries too much and any enjoyment to be had is only short-lived.
Starship Trooper was released in 1997 and is a American military science fiction movie, the fist film released in the series.

USA you have two political parties
The Republicans and theDemocrats
But the last few years there is a new movement called the Tea Party, The Tea Party are series of protests running a cross the country. And it seems that there is a lot of power in this movement. One example is the primary race for the Alaska´s senate, Where Senator Lisa Murkowski just barely lost the race, and its now seen as a real as whipping. It was the conservative lawyer Joe Miller which was backed by the Tea Party who give Lisa the chocking loss, and it seems that this is going to be the way how the election in 2010 will turn out.
Murkowski´s loss seems to be even more worries, conservatives loves what they see in Miller, he is also a newbie in politics which is why he was backed by the Tea party and that he also is more conserative then his RINO (Republican by name only) oposition. Miller is also a Bronze Star veteran from the first gulf war in the early 90´s and as said never been doing politics before.
When the loss of Lisa Murkowski happened it was clear to all, even for the Republicans that they couldn´t ignore the force that is Tea Party, they helped a politicial nobody beat a senator thats been working as a politician for several years.
The elections in the USA will be intresting to follow this year.
