Who wants some more Wang? Flying Wild Hog does: the developer behind Hard Reset today revealed it’s remaking 1997 first-person shooter Shadow Warrior, along with Hotline Miami publisher Devolver Digital.
The original follow-up to Duke Nukem 3D stars Lo Wang, a former bodyguard for an evil corporation. Wang slices and shoots his way to vengeance against the head of his ex-employer, portraying a questionable mish mash of Asian culture and kung fu movie tropes along the way.
Flying Wild Hog’s Facebook page revealed only the logo and above website, but if the new Shadow Warrior resembles the recent surge of ’90s shooter resurrections–Duke Nukem Forever, Rise of the Triad, and Wolfenstein: The New Order to name a few–fast, gorey action is a no-brainer.
UPDATE: More official information has emerged from IGN: Shadow of the Eternals is headed to PC and Wii U initially, and will take place across 12 episodes. Its crowdfunding campaign will seek to raise at least $ 1.5 million.
Precursor also confirmed the following synopsis:
When Detective Paul Becker is called to one of the bloodiest gang massacres in Louisiana state history, only two survivors remain from a brutal conflict between two rival cults. As Becker begins his interrogations of the suspects, their combined recollections will uncover the truth about the ‘Eternals’.
Featuring an ensemble cast of heroes and villains, Shadow of the Eternals will span over 2500 years of history throughout Egypt, England, Hungary, and the United States. Players will question the perception of reality as they try to balance the mechanics of combat, magick, and sanity events to progress through the adventure.
Shadow of the Eternals will take players on a memorable journey throughout time; weaving historical fact with disturbing fiction to create an experience unlike any other.
The original story follows below.
A spiritual successor to Eternal Darkness is in the works, and Silicon Knights founder Denis Dyack is involved. IGN today revealed a teaser trailer for Shadow of the Eternals starring a young man and woman in a medieval castle. All’s not well in the kingdom, and it gets worse fast.
The trailer only specifies the game is “From The Creators of Eternal Darkness.” IGN editor Rich George tweeted that Dyack himself is involved, and that the site will debut the game on Monday.
Whatever it is, we already know it will try for crowdfunding.
The trailer makes no mention of Eternal Darkness developer Silicon Knights. Instead, Shadow of the Eternals looks to be from unknown studios Precursor Games and Ordinem De Non Visis (Order of the Unseen). That might be for the best given Silicon Knights’ recent history: X-Men Destiny, the canceled Too Human trilogy, and a a devastating lawsuit for unlawfully appropriating parts of the Unreal Engine.
Despite the baggage, we’re eager to learn more about the project.
Ratchet & Clank will hit the silver screen in 2015. The eclectic-gun-toting duo and friends are being made into a feature film for theaters by Blockade Entertainment and Rainmaker Entertainment, series creator Insomniac Games announced on the PlayStation Blog today.
T.J. Fixman, who has penned several recent Ratchet & Clank games will write the script. Insomniac will be hands-on with the screenplay and production, alongside digital media firm Blockade and Rainmaker, best known for producing Escape from Planet Earth and the ReBoot animated series as Mainframe Entertainment.
A PlayStation Network sale on the series is planned to begin April 30 to celebrate the announcement. No news on the PS Vita version of Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault or the HD remake of Ratchet: Deadlocked, sadly.
Former NFL defensive end and linebacker Jason Taylor appeared on CNN’s inaptly named roundtable show (Get To) The Point last week, where he said some cringe worthy statements about marijuana policy reform:
“Just because the status quo is not working on law enforcement right now does that mean that, ‘You know what we can’t beat it so let’s just legalize it and do it?’ … Well you know what, it’s against the law to rob banks. If we can’t control it, just legalize it. What’s next? What’s next? I mean really, what’s next?”
Aside from equating marijuana use to robbing banks, Taylor also likened it to crack and suggested that legalizing and regulating marijuana would result in the legalization of cocaine, ecstasy, and other “crazy outside-the-box drugs.”
In another bizarre – but this time awesome – moment in sports-related news, legendary sportscaster Bob Costas named Ludacris as his favorite rapper for being the first to “name check” him and then proceeded to quote the following lyric from Luda’s “Hip Hop Quotables” song:
“Now I roll up torpedoes, get blunted with rastas
For a hefty fee, I’m on your record like Bob Costas.”
Just after Election Day 2012, when voters in Washington and Colorado legalized marijuana for recreational purposes, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and state Attorney General John Suthers asked US Attorney General Eric Holder for clarification on how the new pot laws would be handled on the federal level. The Colorado brass wanted an official answer by January 10, 2013. While that date has come and gone, this week Attorney General Holder stated that the Justice Department is …More
