Shadow Warrior - (Adam Smith)

Shadow Warrior [official site] has never been my favourite of the Build Engine games (it’s Blood all the way for me) but that entire FPS era has a special place in my heart. It’s also worth nothing that Shadow Warrior is kicking Duke’s ass when it comes to remakes and sequels. As of today, you can explore the history of the original 1997 release by playing the alpha and beta versions of the game, which are now available free on Steam. The 1997 original has been free for some time, but now you can choose to play either the final release or either of the pre-release versions through the launcher.

GOG Connect is a pleasant little scheme from the DRM-free digital distributor, letting people who own certain games on Steam get GOG versions too for free. Now it’s back. GOG today launched another round of GOG Connect, with another seventeen games for Steamers to redeem. Because, y’know, it’s nice to have a DRM-free backup without buying a game twice. The lineup this time includes Hotline Miami, The Last Federation, the Shadow Warrior reboot, X Rebirth, and Teslagrad.

Oh, and GOG has launched another big sale too.

Shadow Warrior 2 is set to launch on PC October 13 and Pre-purchasing Shadow Warrior 2 also nets you the Razorback chainsaw katana which is every bit as badass as it sounds.

Shadow Warrior 2 is the stunning evolution of Flying Wild Hog’s offbeat first-person shooter following the further misadventures of former corporate shogun Lo Wang. Now surviving as a reclusive mercenary on the edge of a corrupted world, the formidable warrior must again wield a devastating combination of guns, blades, magic and wit to strike down the demonic legions overwhelming the world. Battle alongside allies online in four-player co-op or go it alone in spectacular procedurally-generated landscapes to complete daring missions and collect powerful new weapons, armor, and arcane relics of legend.

Shadow Warrior 2 is coming on October 13, as we learned earlier today, and it's looking pretty good. As it should: The first Shadow Warrior was a blast too. But the first first Shadow Warrior, released back in 1997, was solid stuff in its own right, and right now you can pick it up for the low, low cost of nothing.

To clarify, this is Shadow Warrior Classic Complete, which is different from Shadow Warrior Classic Redux: The gameplay is the same, but the Redux edition features remastered graphics and GOG Galaxy achievements, while the Classic Complete version is the same as it was 20 years ago.

It probably bears mentioning that certain elements of the game are kind of, well, racially insensitive. There are no outright slurs or anything (at least not that I remember) but it's shot through with an air of Charlie Chan-esque stereotyping, and has none of the sly, self-aware wit that made Flying Wild Hog's remake feel so much smarter than it looked. At best, it's lowbrow, but some people will find it outright offensive.

The Shadow Warrior Classic Complete package includes the game, a digital copy of the manual, and the soundtrack. Get it at GOG.

Shoot and slice ’em up Shadow Warrior 2 [official site] is set to launch October 13. It’s a bloody, over-the-top ninja adventure that doesn’t take itself too seriously. There’s a guy taking a selfie as he decapitates a monster, so there’s stuff in there us millennials can relate to, too. It’s also shaping up to be quite beautiful if you look past all of the gore spraying everywhere. In the trailer below, Flying Wild Hog has recreated the subtle fall foliage of November in Japan contrasted with the white-washed walls of austere Buddhist temples. Lovely!

Demons, in Shadow Warrior 2 [official site], appear to be made of jelly. I m carving one particularly big bastard open like a Christmas turkey and the segments that slide away are like the gelatinous gloop and gristle sliding from a tin of cheap dogfood. They wibble and wobble, quivering beneath the teeth of my chainsaw. They fold and flop, eventually disintegrating.

The ultraviolence is more over the top than in the game s predecessor, but it s nothing new. That s just about the only place that the sequel takes the more of the same approach though. Almost everything has changed.
