Default Shadowrun Returns?

Anyone played it yet?

I sacrificed many, many hours on the altar of 1st and 2nd edition Shadowrun when I was in Jr. High and High School.


... now if only someone would come out with a game for Paranoia and Starfleet Battles*



*And I don't mean Starfleet Command.

I played the original Shadowrun quite a bit in Jr. High. I still remember that creepy feeling it could give sometimes. I actually forgot the name of the game for a long time, but I remembered the premise. A couple years ago, I was thinking of the game and wanted to find out the actual title. I remembered the name Armitage and talismans and was able to find it. Youtubing it brought back some old memories.

If you never played the OG Shadowruns - its a great game. If you played the OG shadowruns - it's an OK game.

Okay, so Shadowrun Returns was on sale on Steam the other day, and I bought the hell out of it.

Good stuff. Not much "RP" in the "RPG" part of the base campaign, but there's some. The expansion pack - Dragonfall - is quite a lot better. Feels less like it's on rails, so far. Looking forward to checking out some of the stuff in the Steam Workshop, too.

I finished the first campaign, got Dragonfall on sale but haven't played it yet. A lot of reviews are saying Dragonfall is better then dead man's switch. I enjoyed the game, seemed it was more about the story then the role playing, also it runs on Linux, woohoo!

I also enjoyed (and kickstarted) SRR. Dragonfall's definitely worth it too, some new features, a bit more balanced skill usage, good character writing.

I'm a little bummed that the user generated content hasn't really taken off much yet. Dabbled in a couple of interesting short campaigns, but most of them left off with "To be continued..." with no subsequent chapter.
