The rude, crude Shadow Warrior 2 is free to grab on GOG for the next two days. Flying Wild Hog’s shooter is a big messy slab of old-school FPS’ing infused with painful jokes (which frequently made me giggle), some Borderlands-ish stat juggling, procedural encounter generation and lots of monsters and cyborgs to mulch.
Adam Smith gushed profusely in his review, calling it “anarchic, excessive, ridiculous, occasionally spectacular and almost entirely wonderful”. After winning over Firewatch and Superhot in a vote today, GOG are giving it away for 48 hours, celebrating the store’s 10th anniversary . Get it here and tell your friends – it’s co-op too.
A warning about the CooP - Any story progression made during a CooP session only counts for the host.
From what I can gather (and I could be completely wrong, use appropriate amounts of salt), you progress through the story campaign in single player mode but you can run either missions or parts of the campaign in CooP for the purposes or looting and levelling(?).
Apparently you can play coop between GOGGalaxy and Steam client.
Me and Kate are grabbing this tonight for a gore and booze-filled end of week cathartic gaming session.
“Whats that, demon who is actually the person I had to tell the same simple thing to 12 times this week and you still got it wrong even though its your job? You want to see how sharp this Katana is? Well, over you come!!”
