Swords, Magic, and Wang: Shadow Warrior is Back

Shadow Warrior--a remake of the foul-mouthed, 1997 shooter--brings all the blood, magic, and Wang that you can handle.

GTFO!!!

 I remember playing the original back in the day (on of many DOOM clones). I just question the ability to bring that old school "Duke Nukem humor" back to a new remake and have it work.

This is one of those child hood memories that probably should have stayed in the back of my head with rose tinted glasses.

the original was awesome and hilarious, but if they borked up the new duke nukem so bad, I cant see this doing any better.  No one even knew about the old game.

Skyrim Online should watch closely and take hints from this game's sword fighting mechanics!!!

They took out all the humor and parody so nothing but generic game now. The political correct culture in the U.S really kills personal freedom and is nothing but a form of racism.

This trailer did not give me that Shadow Warrior feel :(

Altough, i still have faith in this since it's Flying Wild Hog who's developing it.

Looks like another generic slaughterfest. And seriously, how in the hell does a downwards sword swing horizontally decapitate someone? This is supposed to be next gen for christs sake. How about a bit of effort & have the body cut where the sword actually hits it instead of just falling apart in a few pre-programmed points?

Blood, Redneck Rampage, Duke3D: Atomic Edition, this... Man I loved those days.

Hory Sheet! Might get myself some Lo Wang on GOG to keep me full until this arrives.

Gun and Sword...Looks a lot like Red Steel 2. Well if this is a remake then i guess red steel took the idea from ths.

In all honesty, I really hope you can turn off the messaging about points and that stuff, I dont want it to be borderlands.. I want it to be shadow warrior 1.5 or whatever it is..

I wonder how this will do, kinda reminds me of the Duke Nukem Forever trailers but i hope they make something atleast half decent. Atm it looks all talk without alot of gameplay (Plenty of gore tho)

Well that was unexpected. Loved the original, but things have moved on from then and this is a major reason Duke Nukem Forever flopped.  Looks pretty though, let's hope the gameplay has more to offer than is indicated in the video.
 if there is an FPS game from that era that deserves another outing, it's Blood.  They'd have to turn it in to a survival/horror sort of affai rather than a straight up action game though.

Man, I was such a huge Shadow Warrior fan back in the day...  But I don't know what to think of this game..  Visually it draws you in, but the gameplay doesn't seem to be that appealing...  The AI seems a bit lifeless (especially the human enemies).  And the spells?  Lo Wang was a sorcerer in his younger days?  It's kind of gimmicky in that sense...  like they're trying to give you an additional method of dealing with enemies.  But it's kind of random and unnecessary in my opinion.  Should have just kept it magic-free like the original.  Here's hoping it's as fast-paced and bloody as the original : )

I really hate seeing words and numbers pop up when I hit something in a FPS, not everything has to try to be an RPG. This reminds me a little too much of The Darkness 2.

@mescovic You know all that out of a trailer? Also... "political correct culture" in the U.S. includes dismemberment with a Katana?

@quakke They said they were taking all the parodies out of the game and making the character political correct.

@Spyre1984 Lol that guy had a bunch of respect before Duke Nukem Forever and Aliens: Colonial Marines. If he has the wacky imagination to make something like Borderlands how can he mess up both those classic franchises!?

@Megamoss1984 Nah the reason it flopped was because they tried to make Duke Nukem Forever into a modern generic FPS instead of keeping it like it was. Serious Sam is a game series that is like Duke Nukem 3D and the original Shadow Warrior and that still sells plenty of copies and people seem to continue to enjoy that series. It's actually pretty cool, Devolver Digital released Duke Nukem 3D Megaton edition AND the Serious Sam series so I have more hope with this game than Duke Nukem Forever!

@Psycold its seesm most of us are annyoied by this, I sure they will put an option to turn it off or just remove it

edpeterson

@Psycold I'm pretty sure they're trying to make it have more of an arcade feel, and not an RPG. Just because a game has numbers and words doesn't mean it will be an RPG!

@Warlord_Irochi @mescovic No, but PC attitudes keep a lot of low-brow and edgy humor out of games, not just per developers but also distributors and investors. So yes, PC culture affects certain games.

@PETERAKO @koospetoors Which is really cool of Steam, but I'd much rather further support GOG instead, three bucks for a no-DRM version with lots of goodies as well as knowing that I'm supporting one of the too few anti-DRM groups out there is pretty much a no-brainer for me.

@edpeterson @Psycold If it's not an RPG then why put it in in the first place? I'm definitely not a fan of it. I don't think it really adds anything to the game, but it certainly is distracting.

I'm not assuming the game is an RPG, but it's a dumb feature nonetheless.
