    Duke Nukem 3D for iPhone/Touch (launch day priced at $2.99)
    I had several mails this morning that Duke Nukem 3D for iPhone/Touch is available now with a $2.99 1 day launch sale. Some review complaints about controls and a rumor of an update. (Normally I'd just include this in the other news/software listing but often that gets missed and I get more mails about something already there.)
