That was UPF. Do a real quick look. I want to see more of this game played by Giant Bomb.

I'm finding myself surprisingly tempted to buy this. Also who's this "Superlative Jeff" they speak of....?

under the system requirements on steam it recommends 'an appreciation for wang jokes'.

I love Flying Wild Hog and Devolver Digital.

That was a hilarious trailer.

That was a fantastic trailer - I hope one of the bombcrew give this another shot now that it's out.

It's a great year to be a fan of slightly overshadowed 90s shooters.

It got 5 out of 5 Throwing Stars! So highest review score of the year right?

Played two levels and REALLY enjoyed them. Was super surprised. Rock, Paper, Shotgun really loved it too. Hope to see a quick look soon, this seems to be a hidden gem.

This looks great! I liked Hard Reset but that game was in desperate need of some personality.

I played the original Shadow Warrior when it went free on Steam a few months ago. Regardless of it being offensive or not (I personally thought it was more dumb than willfully offensive), it really wasn't that great a game, even looking at it through my "what games was a I playing circa '97" lens.

However, I loved Hard Reset and everything I've seen for this game, including it's appearance on UPF, was great. So I pre-ordered and I'm really looking forward to it.

There are some seriously neat little touches in the game, like this for example. This is not my video BTW, hopefully the author doesn't mind me posting it.

Rock, Paper, Shotgun gave the game a glowing review. I have to admit I was kind of with the journalists that were like "why is this game being made?" Hopefully this teaches us all to not be such jaded pessimists. Just because the original game wasn't all that doesn't mean that a remake vaguely based on it can't be good.

Fantastic launch trailer. Got a bunch replays from me. Really pumped to play the game, but it's still downloading... Maybe I will just watch the trailer a few more times.

Now if someone would just get around to reimagining/remaking Gloom, In Extremis and Adrenix.
