    Interview, various design changes and other game mechanics.
    (What with all the negative attention it might have caused and how different and broader the gaming market is it's understandable that some things had to be cut or redesigned before the publisher and developers were comfortable with doing this project.)

    (Also sounds quite similar to just Hard Reset in terms of gameplay but it's not bad, old-school shoot-em-up mechanics and the like.)

    Lo Wang is the player character.
    That hasn't changed. What has changed is they've changed him from a giant walking stereotype and into an actual "character".

    I love Shadow Warrior, but I've always disliked how lazy the humor was in it. DN3D wasn't made to be funny, it's humor came from getting an obscure reference... or some black humor inspired sarcasm.

    Shadow Warrior just threw it out there. Very up front and in a very lazy manor. It's humor relied on tired racial jabs, sexual jokes... and way too much camp.

    I'm glad they are still having the humor, but in tern making it more focused and not just an cheap jab as Asian culture.

    Have you tried viewing it from the Steam client itself?
    (Browse or search for Shadow Warrior and you should see it.)

    That would be Ninja Gaiden. Why they called it Shadow Warriors in Europe is beyond me :)
    There is however a new take on this series coming out as well called Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z.

    I never like those TotalBiscuit reviews. I find him quite annoying tbh.

    I can understand that. Everyone on YouTube have over inflated egos.
