Gamers who prefer their operating systems designed by Apple will also have a chance to take a bite of Duke Nukem Forever's "pain cake" this summer, when Aspyr brings 3D Realms, Gearbox Software and 2K Games' raunchy first-person shooter to Mac OS X this summer.

Having not yet played Duke Nukem Forever, I can't explain what a "pain cake" is or what it tastes like, Mac gamers, but it's part of the announcement released by Aspyr Media today. See?

"We are thrilled to play a part in bringing this gaming experience to the Mac," said Michael Rogers, President of Aspyr Media. "Duke Nukem Forever represents many of the best aspects of gaming: shooting aliens, saving ladies in distress, and great tag-lines. We think Mac gamers will love taking a bite of Duke's special pain cake."


The Mac version of the long in the making, critically panned Duke Nukem sequel is available for pre-order through Aspyr's Game Agent. Duke Nukem Forever for Mac will support Valve's Steam Play and Steamworks features when it hits this summer, currently sometime in August.

Oh boy, so now Mac gamers can play a (in all likelihood) very poorly ported version of an already shitty game. Great.

*Notice: my opinion of the game as shitty came from playing the demo, long before a single critic panned the thing. The gameplay is trash (opinion), most notably the driving, but also the shooting, visuals, and general feel.
