#Shadows of the Damned



You can now get a real Big Boner on Xbox One

Shadows of the Damned is a pretty overlooked game from last generation. It may not be Suda51's best title, but it has a really great story, solid gunplay, and some awesome visuals. It also provided us with an excellent soundtrack by Silent ...

Review: Shadows of the Damned

Shadows of the Damned gets a launch trailer

Make no mistake, Shadows of the Damned is a silly game. One of weapons available to protagonist Garcia Hotspur is called, quite simply, "Boner." Yeah, they went there. The marketing for this game has taken a similar over-the-top approach, ...
