We don't know what the heck is going on in Shadow Warrior by Bill Zoeker
Max and I continue our journey through Shadow Warrior on PS4. We get really confused as to what was going on, so we finally turned on the subtitles. In doing so, we also discover the special weapon skins, including a badass Hotline Miami katana.
Max and I decided to check out Shadow Warrior, which was recently ported from PC to consoles, is a re-imagining of the 1997 game by 3D Realms. It's sort of like Duke Nukem with the culturally ignorant Asian themes of Mortal Kombat. I had my doubts about this game, but as you can see in the video above, I think it's kind of just dumb fun. Also, we rock out to Stan Bush and make dumb jokes.
We knew that Shadow Warrior was coming to the PS4 and Xbox One this fall, but now we have a solid date of September 26. Devolver Digital is releasing the game in conjunction with Bandai Namco Europe, which will have "high qua...

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.

[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."
Shadow Warrior has another cross-game partnership following its collaborations with Saints Row IV, Viscera Cleanup Detail, Serious Sam 3, and Hotline Miami. Developer Flying Wild Hog worked with Telltale to bring The Walking ...

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.
Here's some Shadow Warrior to tide you over while our review is in the works. I go stab stuff up, look for glowing statues, and watch rabbits having sex. All in a day's work for this Stan Bush enthusiast!
We might do more of this one. Depends how much y'all like it.

Shadow Warrior released today! Yay! It's a wonderful bloody and disgusting first-person shooter/slasher. It's also going to make Stan Bush's "The Touch" stuck in your head for the rest of the day.
The game retails for $39.99...
Outside of a few outliers like Hard Reset and Serious Sam HD, it's tough to find real old-school shooters these days. While I'm still very much a fan of modern FPS design, playing game after game with regenerative health and linear pathways can get tiresome.
That's where Shadow Warrior (expect Andy's review coming soon!) comes in, delivering a fairly challenging experience along with some elements of '90s FPS goodness. So sit back and enjoy some tips for Lo Wang's latest adventure.
For all of the time we've spent talking about it, Destructoid readers should be familiar with Saints Row: The Third's "The Penetrator," aka that dildo baseball bat. I'd say it's back, but it never truly left. The infamous mel...
After the greatness that was Rise of the Triad, I'm kind of on an old-school FPS kick right now. Good thing Shadow Warrior is just around the corner with a September 26th release date, and now, you can pre-order it on S...
