    Is this the year of Westwood remaster or something? Where are Nox and Dune remasters?

    Oh God...

    STOP IT, you vultures! You're not even done raping System Shock yet! Will be another shitty, half-ass "remaster" at double the price.

    Better get your reasonably-priced gog versions while you still can!

    Setting aside the vaporwarish System Shock remake, has there been a problem with Nightdive's other remasters? Their System Shock KEX engine source port is good AFAIK.

    Are there any details on how, exactly, these character "models" are supposedly enhanced? The way some staff have told it in interviews, Blade Runner's engine is the equivalent of an STC in Warhammer 40k.

    Except for Forsaken being one of the few games I ever returned on gog because it wouldn't run on any of my systems and the Blood "remaster" being a buggy piece of shit upon launch? Can't think of anything.

    Point being, I'm actually quite happy with the current gog release, especially the Restored Content version that was added by the ScummVM people. I have no idea what this "Enhanced Edition" will do for the continued work on the ScummVM version. But I must admit I'm a bit anxious.

    The Blood remaster finally exposed ggmanlives as the pseudo-boomer FRAUD that he is, so it had some pros.

    Yeas, there was some VOXEL thing which they will probably just change to something bad and simple that will be around.

    Also the original had a shitload of replayability (like...4 main completely different random settings and 16 endings in total? didn't remember well), afraid about keeping it.

    I think they will just remake the models in regular 3d. That is what I understood anyway. That is the only I see it to "update" character models and cutscenes.

    Here's what Louis Castle himself had to say about using voxels:
    There's a good, detailed breakdown of the technology here: http://deadendthrills.com/future-imperfect-the-lost-art-of-westwoods-blade-runner/
    Also, their site seems to be having issues so here's a backup in case it goes down

    There's a good chance they still have the original 3D scene files and therefore could just be rendered at a higher resolution.
    I'm surprised more games that used pre-rendered assets haven't done this TBH.

    Unofficial AI upscaling of The Longest Journey was good (some small details became constantly changeling creepyfest though)
