I don't see how this could be a bad game given how much I liked the first one. So I have high hopes, and I think they are justified.

Seems like a cool idea. However, I would like to know how much gameplay variety there actually is. Looks unique though.

So without me having to look stuff up what is the love people have for shadow run. Is it some nostalgia thing, what's so special about shadowrun?

I suspect, based on nothing concrete, that taking the new batman out of rocksteady's hands was more to do with lowest bidder winning the development bid. Rocksteady proved they had what it took but with 2 successful batman games, they wanted some good money for the 3rd after their proven succes and instead warner brothers just sold it to someone who bid lower, and that is this unknown unproved developer called warner brothers games montreal.

So is the game any good? Is it a standalone expansion or what?

From people playing this, they say it fixes FC3 problems and is a better game than FC3. Standalone game BTW.
What's FC3 problems are those?

Well then you have a difficult task to discover what you don't understand. If I was you I would take it tiny pieces at a time.

Don't get me started on the 19th century physics that you learn in school in the USA...

May I suggest a Coursera course on quantum physics. I have not taken it but there are people on forums there that could help you answer your questions.
https://www.coursera.org/course/eqp

Also I find the dummies books are awesome introducing basic information:

That's the problem, you have to ask the philosophers of science to see if it qualifies as science. Problem is that you have to be able to distinguish ideas that can be tested, even in principle only, from ones that cannot be tested even in principle. I think few would disagree that ideas that cannot even be tested in principle are science. At best I would call the ideas speculative and interesting mathematically but they got to come up with some predictions the ideas make and see if those predictions can be tested.

*Minor spoiler* The gist of the plot is what is called "the many world interpretation of quantum mechanics." It's not exactly fantasy rubbish. Additionally there is meaning in almost everything in the game which supports the plot and this is what sets it apart from other games.

The MWI is totally fantasy rubbish. It doesn't deserve to be taught as physics.
Currently it occupies a weird space in science because it has not been tested and may not even be testable in principal . It's an interesting possibility, an idea, where the math can work somewhat, that's the way I understand it.

For me bioshock infinite plot is a masterpiece of writing. Everything in the game is so chalk full of meaning which the designers actually intended and you don't have to read into it to discover it.

Problem with tomb raider is that the plot does not mesh well with a gameplay. Laura does not want to kill a deer for food, has a problem with violence against humans, and the next scene she's doing brutal executions as if it's gear of war. Makes no sense.

Unfortunately there is another controversy with the game. For the first time they have implemented a coolant feature (for those of you don't know, the reason you can't keep constantly shooting your weapons is because the generate heat, and heat will shut your mech down or cause it to take damage) that requires you to pay money for. Now there are other coolants that you do not have to pay money to buy. However the most effective coolant has to be bought with real money, there is no way to get it without paying real money.

This has people screaming "pay to win" and this is by definition pay to win when the best stuff can only be acquired with real money. There is only one item in the game so far, and hopefully they will reverse that decision and make it purchasable without using real money.

Community Representatives look out for the interests of the developer and publisher, first and foremost and player interests second. When those are at odds, it's clear whose interest they Community Representatives are going advocate.

I think they need to step back and reassess the whole "Merc Corps" fee.
