Duke Nukem Forever demo available June 3

Hail to the king, baby

Gearbox has announced that the demo for the long-awaited Duke Nukem Forever will be available for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 from June 3... but only for First Access Club members.

Gearbox issued another "Very Special Message" video to Duke Nukem fans yesterday. The last time this happened, it was to announce a delay in the game's release date to June 14. This time, though, it's better news — the release date of the demo, which is blasting its way into our gaming systems of choice from June 3.

There's a catch, though — to access the demo on Steam, PS3 or Xbox 360, you'll have to be a member of the Duke Nukem First Access Club. There's two ways to do this: purchase a copy of Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition (a worthy investment, since Borderlands is great, and the DLC included with the GOTY edition is both substantial and good quality) or pre-order the game from "select retailers" — a full list of which can be found here. (It's GameStop and Amazon in the US, EB in Canada.)

In the meantime, the official website for the game has been updated with plenty of new content, so be sure to check it out.

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.
