Since everyone seems to be reminiscing about Sierra, I'd still like to see a real continuation on No One Lives Forever. Contract Jack just didn't cut it.

News Comments > System Shock 2 on GOG.com
12. Re: System Shock 2 on GOG.com Feb 14, 2013, 12:38 Rosco
 
this certainly has my curiosity piqued:
(got this from the GOG site for the game)
"Minimum system requirements: Windows XP / Vista / 7 / 8, 1.8 GHz Processor, 2 GB RAM, 3D graphics card compatible with DirectX 9.0c, 2GB HDD, Mouse, Keyboard."
They must have really put some work to this, I originally played this game on a Voodoo 3, AMD K6-2 400Mhz, DirectX 6 or 7.0. My entire hard drive back then was only 2 GB!

Even though I am mere months away from 50, I didn't come into the gaming scene until '99. Never played Doom, Wolfenstein 3-D, System Shock, etc. My starting point was Quake II, Unreal and system Shock 2. I tried games later on that were not mouse look and just could not get it. Even had a hard time with GTA III and Vice City while driving.

Sadly, SS1 is one game I never got a chance to enjoy. Would love to try it though if GOG can get this as well.

What about System Shock 1? Any word on that?

There apparently is something called System Shock Portable, which is a "free" download (it's called abandonware, so hell, if you can find it, go for it.)

I actually even have my original System Shock box still. God I loved that game. (far more than I loved SS2, to be honest.)

L-l-l-l-look at you h-h-h-hacker... a pathetic creature of meat and bones, running through my c-c-c-corridors.

LOL! I have the original CD, the jewel case that it was in, and the box that it all came together in! I could never get this to run in XP or Vista. I got it to run in Win 7 with that latest unofficial patch, even though none of the in game videos would work it was still immensely great fun. I will certainly be in line to get this from GOG.

Dammit, all you young whippersnappers and your GOGs! REAL GAMING MEN HAVE THE ORIGINAL SS2 CD STILL!

(it fails to install for me, but hey! AT LEAST I HAVE IT!!!)

Anyway, this is awesome.

Hope it's better than the last one.


So do I because it was great!

I agree, I had a blast playing the last one, and RtCW as well. I look forward to another installment of the Wolfenstein series!

Cool, Xen was not my favorite part of the game. I really enjoyed the ground fighting & exploring.

According to Raminator, one of the devs in their forums, Xen will be more like a full game in its own regard. Sounds interesting.

GameSpy, they're still in business? Really? Clicking on that is the 1st time I've seen a GameSpy site in almost 10 years now.

Oh this would be a good one, would love to see another one!
My only complaint from the original, the underground levels was way too long. The above ground battles were great.

Thank you very much. Before that I played the occasional arcade game but never anything to serious.

Apparently I am going to have to try out Metro 2033 one of these days. I've held off on it since I wasn't sure my OC'd E6400 and GTS250 could handle running that game.

Please please let this just be a rumor! I have not played any game, in the 16 years I have been playing them(I am 48 as of today), that has engrossed me so as the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series has.
Still looking forward to the Lost Alpha mod Dezodor and team are working.

Oh boy, another modern day cookie cutter combat game. Remember the good ol' days when everyone used to bitch about WWII shooters?

I miss those WWII shooters now.
