Shadow Warrior isn't a very long game, and odds are you've finished it by now. Thankfully, Flying Wild Hog and RuneStorm have you covered, with free "Viscera Cleanup Detail" DLC, offered up to anyone who bought the game. ...
First came Duke Nukem, then came Lo Wang, and now come the reboots. Flying Wild Hog, developer of Hard Reset, annouced it is making a reboot of Shadow Warrior, the offbeat, borderline offensive but all the way awesome Hong Kong cinema influenced follow-up to Duke Nukem 3D. This unexpected reboot is being produced by Devolver Digital (Serious Sam 3, Hotline Miami).
I remember drooling over the images of the often delayed Shadow Warrior in the mid-90s, only to be underwhelemed by it once it released in 1997 after the arrival of 3D first-person shooters. I've come to appreciate it over the years -- as it really is one of the best FPS games of the '90s -- but I worry at how Flying Wild Hog will adapt the character of Lo Wang, who rightfully managed to piss-off Asian gamers back in the day. Then there's also the game's weird fetish of finding women taking a crap ("Why does thinking about sex make me wanna crap?" one woman says).
Take the offbeat nature, tune down the offensive bits, bring back the ninja gear (swords and shurikens), and Shadow Warrior could make for one hell of a reboot, especially in the hands of Flying Wild Hog. Here's hoping we get more details on this project soon.
What happens when former Bulletstorm and The Witcher 2 developers club together to make a first-person shooter about insane robots? Well, if Hard Reset is anything to go by, you get something very promising indeed.
Hard Reset has gained attention for its bold visual style and hardcore gameplay, but being a brand new IP in the PC indie market, it was always going to be a hit-or-miss risk. Fortunately, it's a risk that has most certainly paid off.
A game like Hard Reset needs no story. You're a guy with some really big guns, and you're fighting a bunch of really badass robots. Do we need much more than that?
Nevertheless, here's a story trailer for the really promising PC exclusive shooter. Watch it to get pumped for this delightfully old school FPS.
