Shadow Warrior came out yesterday, and it’s a pretty cool game. At first I wasn’t too sure if it’d be good, as it just looked kind of slow paced compared to the original Shadow Warrior and to another similar reboot of a 90s FPS, Rise of the Triad. Devolver Digital were nice enough to send me a key, so I’ve been playing it a bit. The swordplay is great, probably better than any other game with a similar mechanic. It’s just so fluid and fun to use, and the gibs are really detailed. I think you can probably slice an enemy into hundreds of pieces. The gunplay seems somewhat mediocre, but I’m sure it improves later on when you get more upgrades.
I’ve also been playing GTA V like everyone else and of course, it’s fantastic. Even though I haven’t beat the game yet, I’ve already gotten to the point of just doing random things and messing with NPCs for whatever reason.
Anyways, this blog post is just here to make the site seem normal and I probably won’t post anything else for months since no one reads this.
