@nmarebfly: For the record, it *did* have bots at least, but you're right that it was very much a case of bad timing and circumstances for soooo many reasons.

To make things even worse, it was also the game that Microsoft decided to use as a sort of experiment in 360-PC crossplay, which for obvious reasons made things kind of awful for the 360 users who wanted to compete. As far as I know, there was no way to play only with people on your own system without just doing a local LAN.

@kelbear: I loved this game too, played it soooo much.

GodDAMMIT, Vinny! Entering a QL without knowing some things? What kind of fly by night operation is this?

Though in all seriousness, this game appears to be built more for fans, and apparently didn't do a great job explaining a lot. You'd need to have watched some of the developer playthrough videos (one on Gamespot) to have any idea it seems.

Also, JAKE Mutha FUCKIN' ARMITAGE!

I had heard he was in the game, but that Vinny got him so early it seems, has me stoked. Spent so much time in that SNES game.

I just jumped into the game. It's simple enough that I figured out most of what i needed to know with no problems.

Fair enough. Seems in the bustle Vinny might have forgotten some of the magic basics. I figured if he hadn't gotten that down then he had no chance at the Rigger and Decker stuff.

So, do think someone super dedicated could recreate the SNES Shadowrun using this engine? It seems completely doable from what little I've played of the game.

If you look at the steam workshop page some people are already trying.

Man this game sure looks like it plays alot like fallout 1 and 2 which sounds great.

I'm enjoying it so far, except for the save system. No manual save is kind of a bummer.

Still, it's a pretty impressive system for player made content, and unlike say the original Neverwinter Nights, the campaign that comes with it is worth the price of admission alone.

I made a Dwarf named Tripod.

Been playin this game for a few hours now. Really like it. Combat reminds me of FO 1 and 2.

I was just thinking the same thing watching this QL. That's a pretty big selling point for me.

Looks cool.

In addition to the magic thing, SIN is a reference to a System Identification Number, like the US's social Security Number...or Canada's Social Insurance Number. SINless are people on the fringes of society; "No document, no person" as the old saying goes.

Sure, I think it's not the game's fault though if Vinny never looks at the large buttons at the bottom right corner of his UI.

The saving seems like a bummer, why didn't they just make it manual or atleast auto before/after encounters

Posted by Inquisitor

Thanks for this QL!

Posted by redfoxbennaton

Cool game.

The recent string of three-duder Quick Looks has been fantastic! Keep it up!

Posted by DrWhat

It's good!

Posted by Karkarov

The saves aren't that bad. Every time you leave an area/map transition it auto saves, most "maps", even the combat filled ones, only take about 10 minutes to clear.

That said the game is fun, and lots of mods are already in route to do tons of cool things. Two different snes reboot projects, someone already created a persistent corpse with looting resource, etc etc. The saving will get patched.

Posted by gbrading

Does look pretty cool, but the save system seems really poor. As in Magicka poor.

Posted by development

That mask looks really poorly designed. If you look upwards you'll unplug your mouth tube. And we all know what flows through the mouth tube.

@kelbear:

Yes, thank you. The 360 Shadowrun was a blast, despite me never buying it. That multiplayer demo with just one map, that was infinitely more fun than most shooters. So much tactical thinking, so much variety in encounters. A shame it never caught on.

I might have to check this out.

Posted by QuietYith

My GOTY right here! Only complaint is length, which hopefully is alleviated by all the user-generated content.

Edited by shodan2020

This game looks really fun! Reminds me of Fallout 2, in a good way. I like how they've also made the combat reminiscent of XCOM: Enemy Unknown. :)

So what you're saying is that in the future everyone will be saying duder instead of dude?

Seems to be more like a graphical novel than a game. Too much reading, not enough playing.

This comment is hilarious. Too much reading in this RPG.

Edited by Chumm

Never have I let out a "fuck you Brad!" fiercer then when he suggested it was brazen for this game to call an area "The Barrens." I'm glad they didn't get far enough into it to claim that Shadowrun ripped off the matrix from the Wachowskis....

Posted by ITSSEXYTIME

The combat looks likes a poor mans XCOM.

Posted by GrendelPr1me

The whole bit about commerce being a weed that will take root in cracks a crevices wherever it can, and especially in the Redmond Barrens seems like a nicely veiled remark on Microsoft and how it handled the last game to carry the Shadowrun game.

Posted by super2j

this actually looks really fun. I never heard of this series before and aside from the save thing (which i hope someone will release a patch for). it looks cool.

Damn Halloweeners! Going door to door, trying to get hand outs!

Nice cameo from Jake Armitage.

Posted by DennisTM

The genesis version was really a favourite of mine. On the strength of that alone I will be picking this up.

"Redmond Barrens". Zing.

Posted by MrKlorox

Vinny should have styled his character after Forrest Whitaker or The RZA.
