News Comments > Warren Spector Joining Otherside for System Shock 3
41. Re: Warren Spector Joining Otherside for System Shock 3 Feb 18, 2016, 13:56 Acleacius
 
I've seen it mentioned a couple of times, including this thread "the original ending for SS2 was lost". Wouldn't they have had time to put the correct ending in after all these years, either through patch or mod? I've seen so many mods where new cutscenes have been added, it's not like it would be more difficult than any other game, well afaik. Also, if true, what was the original ending?

Iirc, Spector was an outside producer for SS1 (per in game credits and Wikipedia) and not sure he had anything to do with SS2(checked and he has no credits on SS2 Wikipedia, not to mention KLevine has posted here on Blue's stating as much). So not really sure he deserves any credit for the development or success of either System Shock, certainly not SS2.

Yes, there was an issue with weapons breaking too fast but was fixed early on, through a mod or console command, as was the spawning. It was simply balance issues any game has at release, well afaik.

As far as the same twist on both, I don't recall it. In SS1 it was a known and SS2, (without going into spoilers) it was an unknown.

When will mod teams learn to keep their mouth shut about project remakes with newer engines. Keep quiet, do the work and release it as proof of concept and skill.

I thought the Writers Guild got it right last year with The Last of Us. Even though I didn't get to play it as a PC gamer, saw it as a 6 hour movie online. It was the first time I've ever watched someone else play a game, but it was so well edited it seemed like a movie.

I've only played the original Witcher, it had horrible and contrived writing. Remember chap 3 (iirc) where geralt had to get engaged to either Triss or Shanni? Or the Bank where your force to choose between two ridiculous sides? Don't even get me started on Abigail and there are tons more examples. When I saw Witcher 2 was more of the same i.e. forced and contrived choices, never played it even though I got the game for free.

The biggest, most frustrating part about the Tomb Raider is the ridiculous console game play (can anyone say QTEs Protest ) but over all the writing has been good, not as good as TLOU. I seriously doubt most of the Writers Guild played PoE, since it's so long.

I'm really torn about Deadpool, very cool license but ...isn't this douche, the actor who bombed a couple of movies like Green Lantern and treated Scarlett Johansson like crap...think I'll pass on it all, just like I'm sadly passing on watching the other clown playing Batman in the new moive, bleh.

What's going on with the React Gaming, starting Portal two months ago and still haven't done episode 2? They seem so unfocused, it took them a damn year to finish 'The Last of Us'. Slap

Is it the same character, with the save games transferring as a series or how do these 3 games connect?

Thanks

I can't believe I've never heard of this. I have it big time.

I had the same reaction. MrsBlue is always getting on me for intimidating people with some sort of glare that I have no intention of giving off. My resting face apparently gives off a very strong "don't fuck with me" vibe.
It's like one of those articles you read about people with strange diseases and the relief they feel when after years it's finally diagnosed. They're relieved there's a name for it and they're not the only ones. This is timely for me as I've recently been trying to adopt a friendlier, more open expression but it's hard for me to pull off without looking like a dork. I've seen people taken aback when they come up to talk to me and my expression changes so dramatically. They're like Oh, I guess he doesn't despise the world after all.
I defiantly had one of those experiences recently. Except my lifetime missing puzzle piece was finding out my mother's a schizophrenic, bleh. Puke

Yet, I'm the opposite, almost always smiling at people. I'm not sure a person who is genuinely smiling ever looks like a dork. I've heard people in NYC, never smile and are suspicious of people who smile. Being from Texas and never to NY, it could just be propaganda against NYC. Wink

Think we all get propagandized from movies, where tough guys never smile. However if you check those real life stars, they defiantly smile. I grew up admiring James Bond and Hans Solo/Indy Jones, both Sean Connery and Harrison Ford, smile in real life.

I wouldn't get discouraged, there's probably 50% of the people you meet it won't matter. Since about 25% of the population has serious mental issues and another 25% are too overwhelmed to even notice.

One thing to remember, not only will real smiles make others feel good but it makes you feel better, within yourself. There's sort of a stress release, when using your face muscles. Tickling

There's no way DGC didn't know they were losing 60% of their potential customers, with that pvp only crap. They just exploited as much money as possible out of the pvp peeps...player's got played. Backstab

With any luck, the pvp players will be pissed! Biting

The lady filming is lucky as hell, the blast was blew perpendicular to her instead of in a radius. I kept thinking she was going to get knocked down/back/out if not seriously injured. Amazed

Is this game worth a damn for free? Or should i not waste my time?...just wondered....
Following its release, the game won several awards including the 2012 Spike Video Game Awards for Best Driving Game and was nominated for Best British Game and Best Online Multiplayer at the 2013 BAFTA Awards, and was repeatedly recognized as the best driving/racing game of 2012 by several outlets.
