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.

are we playing old games now because there's nothing better to play now or something?
Well there's only ever been one game better than Thief, and that's System Shock; and neither of the sequels is far down the list. So I guess the answer to your question is basically "yes".

Is this actually confusing for you? I mean, if your all-time favourite film got a remastered print and a theatrical release, would you ignore it and go see something new, or would you see your favourite film on the big screen looking and sounding better than ever?
