I watched a video of Duke Caribbean : Life's A Beach and it looked brilliant. However, you can't buy it off GOG.com, the same with the other official expansions. Will they ever come to GOG.com or have CD Projekt tried and failed at doing so? I could buy the expansions off eBay but they would be very hard to install. Also, if they came to GOG.com, would they work on eDuke32? I will appreciate any answers you can give me.

There have been a number of threads posted regarding the expansions. But to put it simply, they are not official in the sense of them being by Apogee / 3D Realms as they were by third parties. Because of this, getting their licenses is most likely a nightmare for GOG so don't hold up any hopes of getting them here.

If you do get them from eBay, bear in mind that their format will be incompatible, so you'll need to get an extractor to get the grp files out of them. Once done you can then use them with eDuke32. Google should help you find an extractor.
I actually saw that one Duke Nukem fan site or another had them hosted for download. Obviously I won't link or anything, but they said something to effect that they were impossible to find and hardcore fans might want to play them.

^ Not condoning it, just mentioning it.
Don't really like the expensions just Old School Duke is good enough for me! =D
Just remembered I made this thread. Thanks for the replies. I got the expansions of the internet, so I'm okay now.
I remember playing "Duke It In DC" back in the day. I was awesome! Something about fighting alien maggots in the Smithsonium Museum. Come Get Some!
They are out there to be found, Nuclear winter and life's a beach are available for free if you look in the right places.. Legit? Probably not, but they are out there in .Grp file format, with Eduke you simply load the levels 1 by 1 and you can play through the entire expansion. It is fun after running through the 4 main episodes.

Would be nice if Gog would be able to wrangle those up and simplify them to work like they are supposed to though.

Play the levels one by one? That sounds odd. I managed to find them but not in GRP format so I had to use a tool to extract the GRP from the installation files. Once I'd done that eDuke32 was able to play them perfectly fine, loading one level after the next as it is supposed to. Are you sure you've got them set up in eDuke32 correctly?
The expansions made the game even more fun for me. Spotting the hidden jokes, more things to kill, completely different settings; I just don't see Duke 3D complete without them.

I don't see how they couldn't get Duke Caribbean since they already got two other addons made by Sunstorm Interactive. Blood's Cryptic Passage is on GOG and so is Redneck Rampage's Suckin' Grits On Route 66. There should be no license trouble!
Oh darn... I just realized why they can't get Duke Caribbean.... It's the Hawaii Five-0 theme playing in the first level, isn't it? Good luck getting the license for that!
