Broken down into Shadowrun Essentials and Shadowrun Sprawl. I may skip this one – I’m getting kind of backed up on PDFs – but as I understand it Third Edition Shadowrun still has quite the fan base. So if you were looking to start/improve your collection, now’s the time…
Man, production values have gone up since the first one. Guess they’re getting comfortable with the system. Anyway: only just past the intro, but if you liked the first two Shadowrun games you’ll like this one. It’s very thematically… Hong Kong action cinema so far. Which is good, because I assume that’s what Harebrained Schemes was aiming for.
Check it out.
PS: Shadowrun is pretty much cyberpunk with elves, orcs, and magic. On the off chance that you’re a regular reader who somehow doesn’t know this. And, honestly, I’d be impressed if you didn’t: it’s a tricky combo to pull off.
I’ll let you know what I think, once it downloads and I’ve actually played it. If you want to buy it, it’ll have to be (so far) on Steam: it ain’t showing up on Amazon yet. Which is a shame, because I’m gonna be flogging the Amazon links pretty hard this week.
Seriously, I’ve been looking forward to this… but I’d like them to maybe turn all of this more into a shared-world kind of thing. I dunno how you’d do that, of course. Maybe an MMO?
Third one in the video game series; I picked it up during the Kickstarter and can’t wait to play it. In fact, I’m gonna go through the first two again ahead of time and get properly in the mood. What’s the program that people use to record their gameplay? It might be amusing to listen to me flail about a bit, as I am wont to do in video games.
I’ve paused playing it because I want to see if there’s going to be a patch coming out soon (no major glitches, but an annoyance here and there). It’s very cool: my major complaint is that I can’t run my main campaign character.
…Yes, that character would go through the campaign like a hot knife through butter. Your point?
…but it is January 2014, so we’d all like to hear when Shadowrun: Dragonfall is actually coming out. Well, those of us who bought the core game and liked it would like to hear, at least. I suppose that the rest of my readers don’t really much care.
Still. Any time now.
Any time now…
PS: Still trying to decide whether to pick up Shadowrun Fifth Edition, actually. I’m running out of shelf space again…
