Thief 2, System Shock 2, and Homeworld 2 Unofficial Patches

This French Website offers new unofficial patches for Thief 2 and System Shock 2, updating these Looking Glass classics to version 1.19 and 2.4, respectively. As noted on Kotaku, these patches allow each game to be played on modern systems in high resolution, though of course, use of homebrew patches is done at one's own risk. In other unofficial update news, Kotaku also notes a the release of Complex version 8.2.4, a mod that likewise modernizes the space-based strategy of Homeworld 2. Thanks nin.
