It's hilarious in that the SNES and Genisis version of Shadowrun between fans is like the eternal fight of which Final Fantasy game is better......

I never played either, I only played the PnP game with an OK DM and some very good players who knew the lore/setting/rules.

Best. Damn. Time. Of. My. Life. <3

Do they have a forum yet? Haven't found it if they do. I want to suggest Alexander Brandon for the OST. Deep down, you all know It's the right choice!

If you're a backer you can comment on the kickstarter page. Maybe they'll read it. :D

So I did. Should've edit it a bit to not be a concentrated wall of text, but it's too late now. >.>

If Obsidian could just do one game in this setting, It would be the best Obsidian (and Shadowrun) game EVAR. That'e never going to happen though. If only I had trillions of dollars.


Welcome to the bandwagon. I have been saying this on this forum for YEARS. Obsidian should look into lic the SR property and making a kickass CRPG. But now the founder of SR made the plunge, so too little to late at this point. Considering the finicial position of Obsidian and how poor it currently looks you'd think they would jump on one of the best selling and well known RPG franchises after D&D and V:tM.

I'm not sure about the 4 realities thing as I think there should just be the real world, astral plane and the matrix. I hope they clarify if there will be a separate matrix and the like in a future update

They just added a new deluxe boxed edition at the $125 level

It amazes me how I complained about $150 bucks for SW:TOR and how readily I dropped even more on this game with even less of an idea on how it's going to play

Since everyone is talking of Shadowrun recently, I tried to give a go to the SNes game, especially since they mentioned its hero in the last kickstarter video.
After one hour spent on the game, I know have one tiny question that spawned in my mind:

WHAT THE **** AM I SUPPOSED TO DO?

Seriously, that's terrible. I find matches and a paper mentioning a warehouse and a club named Wastelands (Coincidence). I get out of the morgue, some guy tell me I'm done for and run away. I follow him, he get killed, I get his gun, kill the assaillant, encounter a cryptic cyber-dog and then, nothing else to do. I'm supposed to bring him objects. What objects? Why can't I explore because everyone is trying to kill me? Why is there no warehouse nor Wastelands club anywhere? Why is there no objective? Why do I want to channel the AVGN?

I'm all for complex games but there is a line to NOT cross between complexity and vagueness. i sure hope that new game won't do that.

Latest goal is a new backers-only mission if they reach $1.5 millies which will tie up with the SNES and Genesis games. Backers don't seem to like the idea that they'll be the only ones to get it, though, so they might just change their mind on that.

I am tempted. Never played Shadowrun, but if it's anything like a Bladerunner type game, I might just brandish my CC at the oblivion threatening good games and yell 'Charge!'

Get a copy of the rule set and read. It is utterly..... insane and so fantastic at the same time. It's brilliant.

Not surprising at all that backers are not keen on the idea. Exclusive content, day one DLC's and other such withheld or cut content is the major reason people are fed up with `Big Ass Games´ companies. Harebrained Schemes sentiments are right, they want to show appreciation to their Kickstarters, but their approach is wrong and not quite thought out. I do hope they are as open and in touch with their base as InXile with Wasteland.

Personally I did not back Shadowrun, I do think it a good game, but I spent enough money this month (Guild Wars 2, Wasteland 2, Legends of Grimrock) and I was going to buy Shadowrun on release as my means of support, now I am not so sure as it feels I would not be getting a complete game.
