Duke Nukem Spin-Off Bombshell Pushed Back To January 2016

Bombshell will have to wait a little longer before she can kick some ass, as 3D Realms has revealed that the game has been pushed back to January 29th, 2016 on PC.

The game follows a character named Shelly “Bombshell” Harrison who loses her arm and allies in battle, only to be offered a second chance to fight back and get her revenge.

The game will cost $34.99 for the standard version of $39.99 for the deluxe version, digital soundtrack, art book, map and early beta access to the Bombshell FPS prequel.

Bombshell will also be coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at some point next year, though specific details on that have not been released at this time.

Bombshell’s Still A Badass In The Zeroth Guardian Trailer

Bombshell is back with another trailer showing off how much of a badass she is, this time doing it in the Zeroth Guardian trailer. Check it out below.

We have another pretty solid look at what this little game is all about, and from the footage I’ve seen so far I’m pretty excited. That probably has to do more with the fact that Bombshell is a part of the Duke Nukem universe, and Duke Nukem is secretly my idol.

Okay, maybe not so secretly. Hail to the king, baby!

While Bombshell doesn’t have an official release date yet, it is expected to release sometime this year for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Check Out A New Bombshell Gameplay Video

A new 10-minute gameplay video from the upcoming twin stick shooter Bombshell has been released by 3D Realms, which is set to be shown at this year’s Quakecon.


In the video we get to see a lot of action with plenty of cheesy dialogue and hammy voice acting. It’s pretty much exactly what you would expect from a character existing in the Duke Nukem world, though we’ll have to see if the game can be anything more than just another mindless twin stick shooter when it releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC sometime later this year.

Gearbox Looking For Help To Make New Duke Nukem Game

When Gearbox purchased the rights to the Duke Nukem series in 2010 and the released the long-delayed Duke Nukem Forever the year after to mixed reception, it kind of put the whole Duke Nukem series on the backburner. While a game with such a shaky development history was bound to be a mixed bag, the game just didn’t garner as much attention as some would have hoped.

Duke Nukem

However, Gearbox is now saying that their acquisition of the franchise was not made just so they could release Duke Nukem Forever, but to give the character a shot at continuing beyond that. Here’s what Gearbox head Randy Pitchford said regarding the series to Eurogamer:

“I did not acquire the franchise merely so people could experience Duke Nukem Forever. That was, sort of, the toll to pay to give Duke Nukem a chance at a future. So yes. In fact, we’ve done some concept development. The challenge is that Gearbox is very busy. A faster way would be if the correct developer would become interested and we’d work with them. I think that’s it’s a challenging problem, but there’s no doubt that, when it does happen, the entire industry will turn its head. Getting attention in this industry is one of the hardest things to do.”

I personally love the Duke Nukem franchise, and even though Forever didn’t live up to the hype, there really was no way in hell that it could have. I’m sure that if they got the right people to make the game and nothing went so horrendously wrong that it took over a decade to finish, a new Duke Nukem game could be awesome.

New Bombshell Gameplay Trailer Released

3D Realms’ upcoming isometric shooter Bombshell has received a brand new gameplay trailer, which was originally shown off at E3.

In the trailer we get a closer look at the femme fatale herself, Bombshell. In typical 3D Realms fashion, there are lots of aliens, lots of quips and lots of one-liners. The trailer also claims that the game will be playable at the upcoming QuakeCon.

Check out the new gameplay trailer for Bombshell directly below.

The judgment:

I’m actually really looking forward to this one. I remember reading that this game originally starred Duke Nukem, himself, but was sidelined due to some legal issues. So, they swapped out Duke for Bombshell and now everything’s in the clear. Hopefully this one turns out alright.

First Gameplay Trailer For ‘Bombshell’ Released

Check out Bombshell as she wreaks havoc with her mechanical arm.

Last year 3D Realms announced that they were working on an ARPG called Bombshell, though after that the game quickly fell of the radar.

Well, it’s time to put it back on your radar as the company has released the very first gameplay trailer for the game. It shows off our titular heroine named Shelly “Bombshell” Harrison, who is a bomb technician turned mercenary. Oh, and she happens to have a mechanical arm that can be configured in a variety of ways to wreak havoc on her opponents.

Enough of all this describing, just check out the gameplay trailer below, alright? 

Bombshell is developed by 3D Realms for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It’s set to release sometime in 2015.

‘Shadow Warrior’ Console Ports Receive Small Delay

Expect to experience the console version of Shadow Warrior a bit later in the year.

Today is the day of small delays, as now Bandai Namco has revealed that their PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ports of the PC shooter Shadow Warrior has been delayed. It now appears that the game will not be hitting shelves in the US until October 21st and October 24th in the UK. The game was originally set to be released next month.

Bandai Namco said the following in a statement to VideoGamer:

“Bringing Shadow Warrior to PS4 and XB1 has proven to be a challenge for us as we want to make sure the player experience is perfect. In play testing we have been focusing in on the controller inputs and response. We recognized that we needed more time to improve this as Shadow Warrior is an old school FPS and this demands perfection. Sadly this means a small delay in the release date, but Lo Wang needs to be at his best on these shiny new consoles.”

Shadow Warrior is a re-imaging of the original 1997 shooter from 3D Realms that hit the PC last year, blending both sword fighting and shooting into a pretty sleek package. The game would no doubt be a great fit on consoles, where the shooter genre continues to have immense success.
