Duke Nukem, Shadow Warrior, and other classic shooters 60% off

No words can describe the awesomeness of our new weekend offer! No, scratch that. There are some words. "Pew, pew!". There, all done, thank you very much! Our Apogee Action Weekend promo described in nine characters (including the exclamation mark and space). Big guns, small guns, laser guns, gunpowder guns, single-barreled guns, double-barreled guns, triple-barreled guns, quadruple--oh, you get the idea. All things shooty. Five action-packed FPS games, three rampage-ready platformers, and one fast-paced space-fighter sim, all for your explosive pleasure and blazing satisfaction. There are some great action heroes on our roster, this weekend. Let's put two of them in the spotlight.

The Bishop of Badassdome, Duke Nukem, is mostly known as the star of his classic 3D FPS game, aptly named Duke Nukem 3D. His career, however, began with two classic run-and-gun action-platformer flicks, simply known as Duke Nukem 1+2. Once a platformer character, always a platformer character--one might say. After making his blockbuster FPS, Duke decided to go back to his roots. That's how Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project came to being. In this severely underrated gem Duke reprises his role of a platform-jumping hero, as he takes on hordes of twisted mutants menacing New York. Each and every one of these titles can be yours for only $2.39!

If you think that Duke's famous one-liners are awesome, brace yourself, because you've heard nothing yet. Lo Wang is Mr. Nukem's counterpart of unspecified Asian origin, and he's the most talkative ninja-kung-fu-samurai-sushi-karate-type person in the history of games. This controversial star of Shadow Warrior Complete is always ready to mock his enemies in ways that will make you blush. No, really. Hearing some of his lines will make you wonder how did the devs ever got away with them. Maybe nobody noticed over all that amazing FPS action? Find out for yourself, for only $2.39!

Even more things go "pew, pew!", "ka-bang!", "woooosh!", and "BOOM!" in our weekend offer. Go right ahead to the Apogee Action promo page, and find out for yourself!

As usual, below you'll find a new episode of This Week on GOG, a short video guide to recent events, promos, and other happenings on the site. By the way, if you haven't already, you might want to follow the GOG.com channel on Youtube, so you won't miss our shows, specials, and exclusive trailers.
I posted this in another thread but it needs repeating: Duke Manhattan Project is easily one of the most overlooked underappreciated games out there period. I am not a huge platformer guy but this one looks so good, sounds great, and runs so smooth it is worth WAY more than that price. Warning, it is NOT a metroidvaina! It has a lot of secrets and hidden areas but strategy its not; you want that get La-Mulana. You want side scrolling balls to the wall action get Duke MP.

FoxZero: I'm definitely grabbing Manhatten Project. I can never get too many platformers. Not Sure about Duke 1+2, maybe I'll come back to it later. The rest of the games I own and paid full price for, they were well worth it! Shadow Warrior is surprisingly fun despite awkward build engine controls and bad color palette. Terminal Velocity is a blast! It's like it never aged. Why did we stop making games this cool? RoTT is neat if you can get over the dull levels.

How's Blake Stone? Those two I'm missing. I'm a huge Duke 3d and Quake fan but I found the old DOOM games kind of dry, same with RoTT sadly despite the insanity. Does Blake Stone have enough going for it as far as aesthetics and lively gameplay? BTW I'm a massive fan of Marathon if that helps.
It plays similar to games like Operation: Body Count/Corridor 7/Wolfenstein 3D, in that you shoot enemies while traversing levels/collecting coins for health and ammo stations(although you can find that stuff lying around as well).
Here's one of the few promos where I want almost all of the games included and I don't already own them.

I also know I won't actually get around to play most of the games on this promo (one rainy afternoon I just might, but I also might never play them). But I definitely can survive paying less than 3 dollars each for Rise of the Triad, Terminal Velocity and Shadow Warrior just out of nostalgia.

Yes, I quite liked DK:MH!

mistermumbles: Hey, what do you know? "Nice, you own all games from this promo." ;)

I'd love to see Wacky Wheels here. One of my Apogee favorites.
Is it worth 6 bucks, or do you think GOG should try to bundle it with something else? EDIT: I'm thinking of this, which doesn't really seem like a deal for 6 bucks. http://www.gog.com/gamecard/world_rally_fever_born_on_the_road#

I can't.

No, really, I can't.

I suppose it is only wafer-thin....

Alright, just one more bite.
Hmm, if this promo had included Hocus Pocus, I might have picked it up out of nostalgia.
Maybe I'll pick up Duke 1&2.
Great! I wanted some Wang.

I'm not familiar with those :( Maybe I'll just grab the first one to see what it's all about. I think I still have the shareware version on my laptop. Gotta love shareware! Thanks

Pfft, no Crystal Caves?

Shadow Warrior Complete is worth a shot. Seriously, 4-barreled riot shotgun. Also Nuke, not just character who likes explosions but real, damn nuclear missile. Plus first time in gaming history sticky bombs. Ripper Heart and multi-mode Guardian Head is something creative. Enemies with best AI out of all Build games, no longer limited CONs... Be proud, Mr. Woo. ;-)

As for Wang origins: since game happens in Japan, he's Japanese probably too (it could be weird that Japanese bosses had Chinese protectors as they don't like each other). Wanton Destruction addon statement about some family in Chinatown is not exactly canon or making him Chinese.

Best deal so far imo. Too bad I own all but one already. No money either so I'll pick up terminal velocity later. It looks good and never got to play it.
This is an excellent sale and I've finished my GOG Apogee collection except for Balls Of Steel (not in this sale) and Rise Of The Triad which I have on CD Rom already as well as on my Ipod touch and that version is complete (even up to the Christmas graphics) with the only problem being dodgy controls.

The shareware version alone is worth money! The gameplay is fantastic, I find it crazy how it dodged so many cliches of the FPS genre and reinvented so many troupes (the shotgun is a good example). The only thing I'll criticize it for is that the level design is a step down from Duke 3D (which isn't saying anything bad since I consider Duke 3D the pinnacle of FPS level design), and the color palette in this game is quite ugly. Other than that this is a very creative topnotch FPS.
