Who said running the shadows was easy? Dodging bullets, swords, spirits, and spells just to name a few. Elves, Dwarves, Trolls, even the occasional Dragon can make any Shadowrun go bad.

I know I've been out for a long time, but I've been checking the boards once a month or so when I've got a free moment. My schedule has been insane since I got back in country.

Any way, I saw this article http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/113630-Shadowrun-Online-Steps-Into-the-Light and thought if you all hadn't seen it, you'd appreciate it.

A new Shadowrun game! Rad!
Very Happy

(and the medical researchers will have perfected one of their experimental procedures for restoring my sight before the release date, right? Right? C'mon guys, right??)

Let's hope this one doesn't bomb like the last one did! The XBox game was a complete waste!

The old Sega game wasn't all that great either... You'd think they could do better given the awesomeness of the concept. I mean... c'mon!

The only game that even came close was Fallout, and even that was barely adequate...

Which is sad, because Fallout's premise is completely different. I really enjoyed the first two. The third kept more than enough of the gritty feel and canon to appease my inner child... and enough new eye-candy to appease my outer child.

I figure in a year or two I might have enough free time to play New Vegas.

There was a game in the early 2000s that was a mix of steam-punk & magic. Don't remember what it was called though. That might have been close.

interesting how despite the general poor rating everyone gives previous Shadowrun games, everyone played them

I didn't play the xbox one. I heard it was really bad. I only played the Sega one because I had just gotten into Shadowrun. It wasn't very good... so I stopped, I think it had been like an hour? Of course, this was back when you could still rent a game.

I didn't play the Sega one, I only played the XBox one. I bought it fresh off the presses, so to speak, and returned in under the "3-Day Rule". I only used one, and that's only because the store I bought it from was near work, not home, so I had to bring it back to work the next day. It was terrible.


@Wreck: Yeah, it's sad that a game from an entirely unconnected genre ends up being the closest we've come to a playable version of SR. Fallout was actually half-decent, in the end. Unlike the SR games.

Check out the Deus Ex Series for good cyberpunk video games. Granted I only played the first one years and years ago but the recently came out with a new one

My son works for GameStop, a local retail store, and he told me the same thing, St Nougat, the new Deus Ex is a good one.
