Shadowrun Returns

Shadowrun Returns now available for pre-purchase on Steam

Also, new video shows Matrix realm

Cyberpunk role-playing game Shadowrun Returns is now available for pre-purchase on Steam. $17.99 for the standard version or $31.49 for the deluxe version, which includes a soundtrack and an eBook (PDF) that contains short stores related to the game. Both versions are discounted by 10-percent, during pre-release.

Still no official date, but developer Harebrained Schemes is sticking to its June window.

In addition to this update, Harebrained recently released a video showing Return's Matrix realm where cyberpunks connect to do cyberjunks. It's pretty cool, but not quite as cool as the Genesis game's depiction of the Matrix which had the player taking on a third-person view of a metallic dude that threw lightning at giant microchips. Because, why not?

For those who haven't been following the Kickstarter-backed project, Shadowrun Returns is a reboot of the acclaimed tabletop and videogame franchise Shadowrun for PC, Mac, Linux, Android and iOS. It is helmed by Jordan Weisman, who designed the original tabletop game. Returns is a tactical turn-based role-playing game in the style of X-COM, unlike the previous action-RPG entries before it.

In addition to this project, another developer, Cliffhanger Productions, is making its own Shadowrun reboot: Shadowrun Online. Along with a new edition of the tabletop, 2013 should be a good year for Shadowrun fans.

I miss mapping :( I was thinking about learning GameMaker, but now I'm leaning toward Unreal Engine 4, maybe to map for the new UT?

I've spent the past 3 hours with that Lost Planet spinoff EX Troopers after finding it on sale for $20US on Amazon. It would've been great if Capcom had released it here. Or if they decided 2 turn that IP into Monster Hunter w/ guns set in an open world
