Is System Shock being revived on Steam and GOG.com?

While it should be taken with a grain of salt, a website is reporting that the System Shock franchise will be available on Steam and GOG.com in the very near future. Flesheatingzipper.com is reporting that Night Dive Studios will be porting the game to appear on GOG.com "within days."

GOG.com seems like a natural fit; its emulation tools make running old PC games on new hardware a cinch. I played System Shock 2 just before BioShock was released, and it was a nightmare. I had to adjust the amount of CPU cores I had active and the game crashed frequently. I'd appreciate a version that was a lot easier to run on my PC.

Night Dive Studios is a new developer/publisher and its Facebook page says that the studio "specialize in finding classic, abandoned and forgotten PC games and bringing them back into the hands of gamers." A noble aim, but I'll believe it when I see it. We've contacted GOG.com to see if they can offer any confirmation of these claims.

While we wait for the last episode in season two of The Walking Dead adventure game, Telltale president Kevin Bruner and Walking Dead writer Robert Kirkman have gone ahead and confirmed at Comic-Con (and on Twitter) that there will be a third season.   I wonder if that gives clues on how the last episode might play out. more

The Wolf Among Us isn't crying wolf with this accolades trailer

The first season of The Wolf Among Us may be over, but there's still one more trailer to indulge in. The quotes included in Episode 5's accolades trailer are technically only about Cry Wolf, but they seem pretty universal as far as the season goes. Tour de force? Genuinely moving? One hell of a ride? Yeah, that sounds like The Wolf Among Us in a nutshell.more
