Oh sweet jesus, I was waiting for news of what FWH was up to. It will be a reboot of an old school ultra violent Yakuza-themed shooter. If that doesn't get you aroused, just remember that FWH is the Polish dev responsible for the exceptional Hard Reset, a game so addictive I was ready to pump it into my veins. FWH seems perfectly suited for this type of violent and in your face title. Here's the original.

Good game, but enemy design and gameplay was flawed. heavily

That's because it's a twitch based game. It's not meant to be complicated. The whole idea is to move, immobilize the enemy/use splash damage, and fire back. Exactly as old school shooters did it. I've beaten it on every difficulty except insane, where I'm stuck at the last boss. Have I mentioned they have one of CDPR's former lead writers?

Speaking of fun shooters, Shattered Horizon is in a bundle on bundlestars.

I'll second that.
I was so bored by the predictable design of Hard Reset, I couldn't even finish it. And that's from a guy who absolutely adores the old Serious Sam game (both encounters!). But hey, those guys knew what they were doing. The Hog guys, eh kind but still not. I might get back to Hard Reset some day. Maybe there's something I missed. But honestly, it had all the ingredients for me to love it. Well the story was eh but it was presented in that cool comic style which at least made it visually appealing. It had a cyberpunkish setting, nice art direction, Serious Sam gameplay. And yet, it still ended up being more or less garbage. What a shame.
I have no idea what Shadow Warrior is. Saw an article on it before but didn't read it. Like I said, I have no context so I can't be interested or not interested. I have no idea what it is! I'm gonna check the youtube video though.
*Looking at the video*
Holy shit, looks friggin' awesome. Flying Wild Hog is making it? Ugh. Well here's to hoping. Hopefully their vision for the remake materializes in true awesomeness. I love me some Yakuza, sword action! Being able to wield a katana while slicing people up is my kind of fun And the rest of the game looks pretty amazing as well. Very Duke Nukem kinda retro shooter. Right up my alley. Modernizing it could definitely work and they should be modernizing it. You can't just forgo 15 years of game design evolution... I kinda regret buying Hard Reset already so if this one ends up sucking, I definitely won't be buying it and I'll be avoiding their future games as well. They better give it their all this time! Much luck to them.

Women will return, with a twist. Twin female assassins have been rumored, and Wang will have dialog with a female spirit throughout the game, making for some fun banter. So no busty anime girls. I'm fine with that. A preview:
