Also, if SS3 really becomes a reality, I truly hope they find the correct dev/publisher group to handle it to ensure the core mechanics stay.

Please let it be none of these

  • ZeniMax/Bethseda (will turn it into a watered down, open-world explore a spaceship game with buggy Gamebryo and Dialog Wheel, and hope the mods will fix it)

  • Gearbox (will take the IP and do nothing with it, and instead contract it to some chuckleheads while actually working on Borderlands 3)

  • Microsoft Studios (turn System Shock into F2P, a console game, or just do nothing...forever)

  • EA/DICE (turn into a linear action game, while trimming down on lots of features + potential season pass material)

  • Bioware ("reimagine" System Shock 3 with modern bioware-RPG mechanics, a color coded ended, potential MMO-style quests, and plenty of romance encounters including Shodan)


  • Am I missing any? Sorry, had to do it.

    +No Bioshock Disney graphics please.
    +No regenerating health (unless it's an ability)

    SS2 was one of the first (and few) games that actually scared me a little. I always played it in the dark and the voices directly behind me, with headphones on, freaked my shit...I LOVED IT!

    Agreed! The "Join US!!" being said in a weird detuned voice from the parasited zombies. And then the "I'm sorry..." occassionaly as they realise they aren't in control of their own bodies.

    creep as! That game made me sweat and raised my heart rate that's for sure. And it wasn't done it a cheap way. There was just a general sense of dread and hopelessness.

    All zoos, in every form, should be closed.

    Most ignorant statement of the morning! Many zoos/sanctuaries are saving the lives of animals and/or keeping them from extinction, and letting people pay a few bucks to come look at them helps pay for the self-less work they do. Don't throw the baby out with the [abusive corporate profiteering] bathwater...

    There is a massive difference between sanctuaries vs zoos. If it was up to me, I'd have sanctuaries were if you want to see the animals, you go and do a zoo keepers job for a day.

    That whole pitch sounds way too good to be true. Caveat emptor.
    There is no way that thing can have as much power as a quad SLI or crossfire system lol

    It's another "me too" product.


    1080p resolution screen. I wouldn't even touch this thing. I'd say you want 4k minimum after using the oculus rift dev kit #2.

    Good to see that they keep their staff long term. I mean it's pretty obvious that they've used the same character animator since Morrowind who loves making rigid ass characters. ZING!

    It's not the vegans you'll need to worry about, it'll be the health insurance companies - they will refuse to pay out for your hearth bypass surgery once they measure your cholesterol and figure out that despite overwhelming evidence you've decided to give yourself atherosclerosis.
    Note that this study (at least as far as I can tell, I didn't read the whole thing)

    That's probably part of the problem. But to save you some time, this isn't 1 study, this is a collection of thousands of studies and they all have the same conclusion.

    Put the right fuel in your sports car otherwise it becomes a people mover

    KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF MY BACON AND MEATS, YOU DAMNED VEGANS!!! Shakefist

    I actually think this study was done by non vegan scientists and doctors who generally want people to live longer and higher quality lives because they didn't enjoy their watching their parent's die an easily preventable yet slow and sad death from stroke, dementia, cancer etc.

    It's not the vegans you'll need to worry about, it'll be the health insurance companies - they will refuse to pay out for your hearth bypass surgery once they measure your cholesterol and figure out that despite overwhelming evidence you've decided to give yourself atherosclerosis.

    The cancer portion of it works exactly like smoking. Each time you have a cigarette or a strip of bacon, you've rolled a 6 sided die. You land on a 6 and Congrats you've made some cancer cells! Lets hope your body is healthy enough to clean out those tiny cells before they are able to divide.

    Well all that bitching about no content is why it's pushed back to June.

    Want to buy a really fancy sports car from me? I've only got a few beta tyres from an 70s Ford, but they are just place holders. You'll still need to pay me the full price of course, but then after a few years once I've engineered the entire car you can drive it. Of course theres nothing stopping from enjoying the bald tyres right now, if you pay now.

    Games are just like cars, and movies - if it's not finished it doesn't work. And more so it spoils the experience for when it is finished.

    Main thing working against them right now is the lack of gameplay. Yes, you can go from planet to planet naming things and collecting materials...it's all very cool. What else do you do? If that's all there is, that's not much.


    +1

    It's an impressive technical idea, but is there anything to do in the game other than look?

    Wouldn't it be better to make the car into a controller for driving games instead of a soccor game?

    'Manhandle that bitch!' from the Gastonia video.. LOL
    From someone that has never been to the USA - that whole video looks to me like South Park has done a live action episode. lol

    Why did the yokel filming take it so personally?

    Is this game really going to be 10 frames a second? Am I going to have to use my onboard graphics card or PC from 2003 to play this?

    Well I thought it was a bit of a let down. There was nothing interesting about the combat.

    It's basically just left 4 dead with a different skin, and that wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing if it was done better. I can't put my finger on it, but it was just lacking in fun.

    Being a french plane, which pylons can I attach cheese to? It sounds like an ineffective weapon, but the enough cheese dropped onto the enemy and they will get type 2 diabetes and dementia.....:P
