A Look at Duke Nukem 3D Megaton Edition

Filed under
Gaming

Think March belongs to Tomb Raider and BioShock Infinite? Then you need to hail to the king, baby. Last week, Duke Nukem made his first post-Forever appearance on Steam. I admit that I never expected to see DN3D on Valve’s service, but I’m glad to have been proven wrong. Better still: it’s not just some straight port.

The Megaton Edition, as it’s called, brings with it an OpenGL renderer along with three add-on packs: Caribbean: Life’s a Beach, Duke it out in D.C. and Nuclear Winter. Of these, Caribbean is the only one that originally got the a-OK from 3D Realms to be produced, though the company later adopted the unofficial Duke it out in D.C. to include it in its Kill-A-Ton Collection.

Despite having purchased Duke Nukem 3D too-many-times in the past, I couldn’t help but check out the Megaton Edition and see what it brought to the table. Plus, the allure of having the three aforementioned add-ons available in such an accessible manner really appealed to me.

Fixing unperceived errors in my X Windows configuration

Last week I decided to bite the bullet and upgrade X Windows to the latest version available in the main Portage tree. After rebooting, X Windows, GLX and Direct Rendering worked fine as usual. So everything was good. Well, not quite. Although the installation was working properly, there were still some long-standing messages in the X.Org log file that indicated my installation was not configured completely correctly. I had ignored them for too long and resolved to find their causes and eliminate them. Here is what I did.
