Do Volition receive royalties for the Shadow Warrior launch trailer? Lo Wang singing along to Proper Transformers’ song, The Touch, immediately reminded me of Saints Row characters caterwauling along to their favourite tunes from the hit parade while driving through the city streets. The scene is in the game as well, acting as an introduction to the hitman with a heart (in his pocket), and it feels like a nod from one work of lunatic brilliance to another. Explosions, gore and the thoughts of VideoGame Journalist, Superlative Jeff await below.
It’s a little late in the day to post a launch trailer, with the game already being out and all, but it’s as good a time as any to see how many of you are playing. I wasn’t quite as enthusiastic as Jeff but I had a grand time.
