We need a new pun

Duke Nukem Forever was legendary as a vaporware title, yielding joke names like "Duke Nukem Whenever" or "Duke Nukem Maybe Never". But now, at long last, it's out.

And Ars Technica says it's awful. They left out the fun, and loaded up on vulgarity.

So what shall we call it now?

UPDATE: The Escapist hated it. So did Eurogamer.

1 "Duke Nukem? Whatever..."

2 I suspect many people forgot that it wasn't the adult humor that made Duke Nukem a fun game.  It was the genuinely innovative level design and engine.

3 I hereby coin the name "Dukaitana" as the generic term for a game years-late that totally fails at the basic premise.

4 I don't know, is it even worth invoking Daikatana?   While Daikatana was the classic icon of "too hyped, too late, too crappy," Duke Nukem Forever sounds like it took that dial, turned it up to 11, and then exploded it with a rocket launcher.
