No Thank you

@joshardson: Hard Reset wasn't bad, so I hope this is good. I'm totally fine with this and Rise of the Triad coming back.

Can't wait. Tastelessness aside, Shadow Warrior was great. This and ROTT in the same year... happy times!

Posted by zoozilla

The use of a Japanese song for this trailer does not fill me with hope that it will provide a less stereotypical "generic Asian" aesthetic than the original game. It looks kind of pretty, though.

@joshardson: Thats a pretty low bar to set these days.

Posted by BoOzak

I've never played Shadow Warrior but conceptually it sounds awesome, and Hard Reset was great! (if a bit short)

Because picking up unfinished 3D Realms projects has always worked out so well in the past.

They've got to save *something* for the promotional Flash game.

How is this picking up an unfinished product? I know you are just trying to make a joke about DNF's development, but this is a brand new complete reimagining of Shadow Warrior, not something that was cancelled or postponed and picked up by another developer.

They've also gotten rid of the sexist and racist jokes, which is hopefully a sign it won't be the same humor everyone hated like in DNF

I was going off the comment Alex made in the description for this video.

Anyone knows how Hard Reset did? I remember liking it

That's a baller Fairlady Z. Right hand drive, fender mirrors, ZG flares, rear strut bar and dual exhausts imply some engine work too.

Lo Wang's riding in style.

I remember the original Shadow Warrior & the game Blood being Duke3D wannabes. So any of us really need or want this remake?

Posted by Krakn3Dfx

"Woops, Lo Wang drop soap, you bend over get it, hahaha."

I'm sure this will be great.

Posted by BeachThunder

Never played the original Shadow Warrior, but Hard Reset was fantastic.

Posted by jaks

Is it really worth digging up that immature, racist trash for a remake? Is even a single person on this planet going to buy this because they have fond memories of fucking Shadow Warrior? Anyone who would remember is a grownup by now.

Posted by MormonWarrior

...I thought this was the same thing as Rogue Warrior. Huh.

@cloudyimpulse: OMG! I'm so happy I could kiss your old wrinkled cheek, Bob.

Posted by MrBubbles

does anyone else keep having a problem where after the video is over it auto replays and doesn't show anything?

So is Lo Wang supposed to be Chinese or Japanese or what? That list of quotes mixes up languages and references so much I don't even know which way is up any more. I suppose cultural consistency is a bit much to ask for a game like this.

I'm reading some of the quotes from the original on IMDB to refresh my mind and I don't remember it being that racist... Just really, really corny.

Oh dear.

How is that racist? That's a quote from the Remo Williams movie.

Posted by CornBREDX

This is a weird re-release. I don't remember it being racist, although that term is thrown around a lot now, but I do remember it being really campy and gory. I remember having fun with, and it was the first game I can think of that had 3d sprites (that I played anyway, may not have been the actual first to do it).

It had really no other significance to me, and while I thought it was funny as a kid I havent really ever gone back to it (although I still own it).

It was a weird game. I have no idea what that means for a reboot. As a concept it could be interesting, but it depends on how that goes I guess.

I feel the same about Redneck Rampage which used the same engine really. Although, Redneck Rampage was way crazier.

Edited by bybeach

Yes! Shadow Warrior was one of my favorite demo sharewares! How will it play for ppl. today...I really do not give a shit. The protagonist sold me when he progressed from his samurai sword to a nuclear tactical device as a 'good personal weapon'....

Duke Nukem can go suck on his own..different dev here and now. As for Hard Reset, I liked the first half, but got tired of the expansion. That might be a summer endeavor, also.

The original Shadow Warrior was just as racist as the original Duke 3D was sexist. It'll be interesting to see how this type of humour will fly these days.

Posted by CrystaljDesign

I was so sure they were going to end the trailer with "You no mess with Lo Wang!"

Edited by Tomba_be

I hope it's overtly racist and juvenile, just to annoy the people who can't stand other peoples (tasteless) fun!

I never said it was racist.

Posted by Vitor

As pretty as Hard Reset was, and as much as I wanted to like it, the gameplay bored me to tears.

I really hope that this turns out well and I can get into it this time, the devs clearly have talent.

Posted by DeviTiffany

This game suffers from a weird catch 22 in that you don't want to make it racist and offend people, but if it's not racist then you failed at remaking Shadow Warrior.

This could be good, Hard Reset was really great! Hopefully, they'll take a new look at the series. And they didn't end the trailer with "You no mess with Lo Wang", so things are already looking up.

Posted by Vigorousjammer

I really liked the old Shadow Warrior game, but mostly just because it was another game on the Build engine (Which I absolutely loved).

I never expected a new Shadow Warrior game, though... and didn't think it was a great idea when I heard this game announced.

However, my excitement for this went from 0 to 60 once I heard it was being developed by the Hard Reset guys. That game was awesome, and beautiful, and definitely brought back that oldschool First-Person Shooter vibe.
Here's hoping this new Shadow Warrior turns out to be good.

Posted by unholyone123

I think that Rise of the Triad will have an easier transition to the modern age because it had a slightly more serious tone to begin with. Regardless of how you felt about the humor in the original Shadow Warrior, it still had awesome gameplay and I hope that is the part that they focus on rather than fan service.

IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII WANTA SOME WANG

Edited by ais1957

From SW I still vividly remember throwing shurikens and dual-wielding Uzis, back in '97. The rain of ejected bullet cases from the Uzis was amazing, had never seen anything like that before. Let's hope this reboot turns out to better than DNF...

Edited by fox01313

@joshardson: While Shadow Warrior's main character was rather crass, the levels & music were quite fun as well as the creative weapons. As long as it turns out like the people of Hard Reset doing it & not like Duke Nukem Forever, should be good though I really really want someone to do something like this for the other game using this engine (of the original Shadow Warrior) Blood.

same here

Posted by Predasus

Shadow warrior only sticks out in my mind as a superior product to Duke Nukem because at the time, it was one of the first games to feature 3d sprites, and game engine wise, rooms above other rooms was improved in key ways. As a self proclaimed level designer back in "The Duke" days, the slight engine improvements drew me in, and the stupid humor kept me interested. It now forms the foundation of humor I can stand, so I'm more than ready for another go all these years later. Always makes me remember ... this whole gaming thing came about with almost NO internet to support it at first. Crazy how far we've come from so little.

Hopefully some of the enemies will still blow their own brains out occasionally. That was the most shocking part of the original.

Also, that sword combat...

I dunno. That recent Star Trek game was worse than Duke.

It can't be worse than Duke... right?... Someone tell me I'm right.
