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.

Eclipse Luna for Fedora 20

If you are a Fedora Eclipse user, then you're probably saddened since the release of Eclipse Luna (4.4) because you are still using Eclipse Kepler (4.3) on Fedora 20. Well, be saddened no longer because Eclipse Luna is now available for Fedora 20 as a software collection! A software collection is simply a set of RPMs whose contents are isolated from the rest of your system such that they do not modify, overwrite or otherwise conflict with anything in the main Fedora repositories. This allows you install multiple versions of a software stack side-by-side, without them interfering with one another. More can be read about this mechanism on the software collections website. The Eclipse Luna software collection lives in a separate yum repository, which must be configured by clicking on this link to install the release package. Read more
