Ummm... with endless backtracking by elevator?

I was talking about SS2 here, you might have overlooked. I never played the original SS, but I remember having to go through several maps just to change elevators in SS2 which really was stupid level design...

They just build a small section of the original map.

Ah, thanks for clearing that up! But speaking of elevator, another thing that I hated about SS2 was the endless backtracking via elevator to levels you already had been to connected with very long loading times. How was this handled in the original System Shock?

I mean you wake up in Medbay and have to go through some pipe section with ladders to leave it? That doesn't make sense!
It doesnt. Therefore you leave the Medbay through the means of a central elevator. And the pipes section is nothing more than a normal utility section for the medbay machines and generators.

So are you saying that they either changed the level layout already in the demo or that the makers of the space station would force every injured person through the utility sections instead of hiding them away?

Hm, I never played the original System Shock, but this demo included some of the things I hated most about SS2, like weird level design that looks not at all like a space station or space ship it should reflect! I mean you wake up in Medbay and have to go through some pipe section with ladders to leave it? That doesn't make sense! Also I really hope the energy pistol doesn't break because I would hate to bash enemies over the head with the pipe all the time like with the wrench in SS2...

But you are getting a new Deus Ex, you're also getting a new Dishonored, and a new Mass Effect, good luck with HL3 and improved AI though.
And what are you talking about? The new Doom was a ton of fun, along with other "rehashes" like Wolfenstein, Tomb Raider, and Xcom.

Exactly that: Reshashes and reboots and sequels! Little new under the sun as with the movie industry...

...are we living in a golden age of video games right now or what?

You mean because the good old stuff gets rebooted and the new stuff are hero shooter clones of each other ;)? Sorry, but I would really like to see a good single player FPS that is not one of both...

And where's my Wolfenstein????

Great, another reboot using the same name! If it has anything to do with the old game at all. And didn't we already have several Wolfenstein reboots?

Is anyone else here bored by the similar settings of most of the current indy games? Some of the typical things I remember are:

1) play out in a postapocalyptic world
2) have the player be alone with no NPCs
3) include survival elements and crafting
4) show the player having psychologic issue

Is it so difficult to program friendly or enemy NPCs in the free engines like Unity 5 or Unreal 4 or are the developers just lazy?

So can someone explain to me exactly why steam is this evil devil of software?

Steam is great...as long as you don't mind not having tech support. Or it being in russian, or them not actually responding to your requests. And the paid mods thing they tried, but otherwise it's still great.

You forgot Steam selling games that won't work without third party patches and the whole way Valve build their monopol by forcing Counter-Strike users into Steam in the first place...

Now is this just another walking simulator, this time on a space station, or something more? And if it is, is it really so difficult to program some decent friendly or hostile AI for all the indies out there?

Now, yes, they`re catching up with the big boys. What`s surreal though is that the others - Apple, Google, Valve etc get a free pass despite being million times worse, but it`s okay since these are "cool" brands.

I completely agree to that! I know it possible to get Android apps from elsewhere, but I don't think this is possible with iOS apps or Steam games and look how many fanboys these two have...

The premise is definitely unique, as you are no longer playing as the savior of the universe.

Since when is this unique? I bet you will turn on your master sooner or later and then it's just another dystopian future game only this time in a fantasy setting. Honestly, I've had enough of these since HL2! Give us a WoD RPG already where the world is alive, err dead, and kicking...

This really looks great! I have a question though, as I never played the original SS: Do we need to fight endless enemies with a pipe like we had to do in SS2 with the wrench or is this just a demo issue?

Awesome sound, awesome experimental design art stuff, awesome graphics & white rooms, awesome scenarios, addictive mechanic.

I haven't played this yet so I can't say anything about the mechanic, but "experimental design art stuff" and "awesome graphics & white rooms" seem exaggerated to me, because when you create a map this is more or less where you start and very easy to do. Applying textures is the hard part and I would rather see something like this in a real full featured world than in all white prototyp design...

At the time SS came out there was nothing like it, it was grandfater of immersive fps/rpg hybrids in the era of flipping Doom clones. For me it was start of a new era of games. SS2 was great but nowhere near as groundbreaking.

For me this was Strife, a FPS/RPG hybrid on the Doom engine! I don't know which one was first ;)...

That's because it didn't. SS2 was much better.

Really? I never played SS1 but I heard that SS2 was rather a kind of copy including the same twist. Also people seem to forget the endless respawning enemies you had to kill with your wrench because your weapons would break after a few shots while you could get ammo from soda dispensers. I really hope that SS1 wasn't worse than that ;)!

What makes the vive better than rift?

Valve support.

LOL! Do you mean like the downtimes of Steam without explanation except weeks aferwards? Or the games on Steam that don't run in the version sold? Or the quick deliverance of games like HL3? Of course Valve will probably sell cool hats for VR at double the price they do right now, because you know, you see them on two different eyepieces...
