Shadowrun Returns Discussion
Ditto! Normally I just reply to topics already started as "how is it", "should I buy it".etc. I'm happy for everyone who enjoys this game though. Well I done commenting on this one, live long and prosper!
this is a juzsaying reply-
the reason 'my friends' even consider non-traditional means of acquiring games is because of the amount of money they have wasted on crap games they could not take back and get a refund.(master of orion 3 for example)
so either we are stuck in a system where those people who are cunning enough to use a great franchise name into suckering people into dumping money into subpar games, so that we get more subpar games.
or we have a free to try model, and if you then want those game creators to make more games- you send them the money.
i know these thoughts are outside of the 3"x5" card of approved topics, but your post is the very attitude that drives people away from kickstarter.
the game was crap, and i'm a lover of isometric games (fallout/torment) and i'm a lover of shadowrun. I'm still optimistic my investment in project eternity will be well rewarded. (but then look who is on the project)
P.S. you'd might want to advise 'your friends' to watch out about their 'non-traditional' means of acquiring games. They are cracking down on piracy more.

my post doesn't infer you didn't enjoy it.
17 year coder telling you that a lot of love and work went into this game.
At the end of the day- it really is crap. linear, point a to b.
Felt no connection to the characters, didn't feel drawn into the story. the mechanics were fine. maybe someone else will use the tools to create more of reactive world.
i just think sometimes, we allow ourselves to get emotionally wrapped up in the idea of the game, plus being that it is more akin to a home grown- we want to pull for the lil' guy.
but with all that said- they got this sucker. that won't get him again.
well, sure, plenty of good games.
summer sale is great, i'm back logged too.
I just spent the last two days delving into shadowrun, and i really wanted to like it.
That is why i played from beginning to end... sometimes a game has to grow on you.
So, i'm not a 5 minute commenter. I really tried to like it.
Maybe some feedback on the games' forum will help them if they get enough funding to develop more.
