Shadow Warrior Reboot Announced

3D Realms' (other) cult hit, Shadow Warrior, is getting reimagined this fall, courtesy of indie developer Flying Wild Hog and Devolver Digital. As was true with the original, the new SW will follow the exploits of corporate shogun Lo Wang, tasked with acquiring the legendary Nobitsura Kage blade, and battling all manner of evil demons along the way. As with the Duke Nukem serheies before it, Lo Wang has always been a protagonist with a personality, brandishing his own special combination of guns, blade, magic, and wit.

Check out the first batch of screenshots from the game below:

Shadow Warrior will be available this fall on Steam, and is coming to next gen consoles sometime next year.

Pizza Hut on Xbox

In a move sure to please many a hungry gamer, Xbox and Pizza Hut have announced a new, freely available app for the Xbox 360. This first of its kind new app will be available later today (Wednesday), and provides full menu access and online ordering, right from the convenience of your own couch. Leveraging Kinect for hand gestures and voice command, the pizza hut app aims to make the ordering process easy and fun for its users. Upon first time setup, users will be prompted to create or sign into an existing Pizza Hut online account. Once created, it will list the nearest Pizza Hut restaurants from the user, and based on the location selected, will generate the appropriate menu. As menus are generated in real time, any local online specials/coupons that would normally be available via the website should also apply to the app as well.
