Mac gamers rejoice! Well, maybe not rejoice, but certainly take heed: Duke Nukem Forever is headed to the Mac in August. Aspyr Media has announced that it’s been hard at work on the Mac port of the 2K games title. It says: “We think Mac gamers will love taking a bite of Duke’s special pain cake.”

Pain cake is an apt description as our Duke Nukem Forever review makes clear. If you’re not put off by the negative responses to Duke’s long-delayed return, you can pre-order Duke Nukem Forever for Mac now for £27. The price will go up to £30 when the game is released.

Obviously Duke Nukem Forever is the Chinese Democracy of gaming. Not only because like the legendarily delayed Guns N’ Roses record the game took so long to get into shops but in that it revives a pop culture icon whose moves are long past their prime.

Duke Nukem is as cringeworthy as Axl Rose’s corn rows, a 1990s character still trying to kick ass and chew bubble gum in a world that has long since moved on. I loved Duke Nukem 3D as much as the next 12-year-old in 1996 but 15 years later, there’s not a lot of laughs left…

iPad voice calls, Cello 3D TV, Nokia N8 video skills: US UpdateIt’s that time for your evening tech jolt, better known as the US Update. Headlining today’s news is a new app which promises to turn your iPad 3G into a 9.7-inch iPhone.

iPhoneIslam, the team behind FaceTime 3G, has released a video showing an iPad 3G making voice calls and sending text messages (SMS). You’ll need to jailbreak your iPad 3G and purchase the £12.29 app, but that’s a small price to pay for a 10-inch iPhone.
