We also got the world exclusive that the original Hotline Miami is coming to the PlayStation 4 with cross-buy support.

Review: Luftrausers
by Conrad Zimmerman

Vlambeer's air combat game, Luftrausers, has finally been cleared for take-off, following a wait that seemed far longer than anybody expected it would. It's been worth holding out for, and fans of high speed, challenging shoot-em-ups have something pretty special on their hands.

New and improved Broforce looks like a real good time

That logo. That trailer. That ... everything. Rather embarrassingly, I'm only now coming to the realization that I should have bothered to pay more attention to Broforce long ago. Finally, a game where I can (essentially) pl...

Contest: Win a code for Shadow Warrior: Special Edition! photo
Contest: Win a code for Shadow Warrior: Special Edition!
by Mr Andy Dixon

[Update: Contest over! Winners have been PM'd their codes.]

Those sexy devils at Devolver Digital have given us 10 codes for Shadow Warrior: Special Edition to hand out to lucky Dtoiders!

To say I came away impressed by Lo Wang's hefty offering wouldn't even begin to do the game justice. It features some of the most satisfying swordplay I've ever experienced outside of my own bedroom, gorgeous graphics, and more juvenile potty humor than you can shake your stick at. What's not to love?

Well now you have the chance to try it out for yourself! To enter, just leave a comment below telling me what you would do with Lo Wang's sword if you had it in real life. Limit one entry per person, and you have until this Sunday, January 26 at 11:59pm Pacific to enter. The contest is open to anyone who can redeem a Steam code.

Good luck! And don't forget, our Huge members get automatic entry into all contests (as well as a bunch of other awesome perks). It's pretty great!

by Hamza CTZ Aziz

[Update: Check out Lo Wang in action in the Rise of the Triad trailer below.]

Shadow Warrior and Rise of the Triad have been busy making sweet love to each other to create some new features. On the Shadow Warrior front, a free survival mode has been added that features three custom-built battle arenas.

As for the crossover, you'll now be able to use Rise of the Triad's Excalibat as an alternative katana in Shadow Warrior. Then over in Rise of the Triad, you can play as Shadow's Lo Wang in multiplayer.

Nice. Also, here's a special message from Devolver Digital's CFO Fork Parker.

"Enjoy the free content, nerds. “Don’t forget my holiday cheer and festive giving of free stuff next year when I jack up prices on some face-melting indie games."

Hotline Miami co-creator got badass ink of his own game

The first time I met Dennis Wedin, co-creator of Hotline Miami, I could not stop looking at his arms. His body is adorned by awesome unique tattoos, and his latest piece takes the cake. Dennis got a new tattoo on his chest ba...

Devolver Digital signs point-and-click adventure Dropsy

Few things scare me more than clowns and as much as I find the protagonist of Dropsy to be unsettling, the game itself is also admittedly rather charming. This is a point-and-click adventure which emphasizes exploration, and ...

Review: Shadow Warrior photo
Review: Shadow Warrior
by Mr Andy Dixon

This Shadow Warrior was never going to be an easy sell for me. An enormous fan of the 3D Realms original, I was an instant skeptic when news of a more "modern" reboot first hit. My '90s PC elitism kicked in, my fingers went into my ears, and I yelled "na na na na na I can't hear you" in a desperate attempt to avoid sullying my nostalgia for Lo Wang's first epic journey.

You see, I have an unnatural (probably unhealthy) love for Lo Wang. If PC gaming in the '90s was a lawless frontier, then Lo Wang was its Billy the Kid. Even more unrefined than his not-so-distant relative Duke, Wang was little more than a vehicle for penis jokes, potty humor, and awful Asian-stereotyping; and I absolutely adored him. And like anybody who loves something, the thought of anyone messing with the object of my affection made me throw a fit. Why would you change what is already perfect?!

And then I got up off the floor and actually played the damn game. And while the '90s might not be back, this game gets us pretty damn close.
