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.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.

The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
