    Chapter 31: Shadowrunners are not good people



    In the early 90's my family went with a Sega Genesis instead of the Super Nes, so I didn't get to play any
    Mario games. No, I had to settle for the Sega Fucking Channel. 50 games to choose from for only 14.95 a month will blot out Yoshi regrets pretty quickly.




    [​IMG] [​IMG]


    Glorious.


    Anyway, this obviously meant I came down on the Genesis side of the 'which console Shadowrun is better and why' debate. Flash forward many years later and my desktop computer has died due to either the motherboard or the PSU, and I'm stuck with what my shitty laptop can handle temporarily. An Intel Atom cpu and integrated graphics card should tell you all the you need to know about its capabilities (won it in a raffle). I can't even play Fallout on this thing.


    But I *can* get 16 bit emulators to work perfectly on it, and since someone has already done an LP for the Genesis Showdown, and I never played its counterpart...why the hell not?


    Posts will vary in size depending on my work ethic at the time. This first one consists of the small group of shots I took before remember to turn off FRAPS framing. Next bunch will look a little less shitty. Promise.

    It's a long way down to where our story starts.


    [​IMG]


    Like most old console titles, not much reason to hit the options screen. Tweaking audio was usually the only game in town.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    The 'I'm not done yet' protagonist trope long before it was cool. Eat shit New Vegas.


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Can't really take the credit for amnesia plot, though.



    [​IMG]



    No matter what type of rpg it is, it always pays to do a inventory/status check first. You can always count on a key item to point the way. Except ARPGs I guess, some of those don't even have inventories.


    [​IMG]


    Hah, I wish.


    [​IMG]


    Space Marines: Blade Runner edition


    [​IMG]


    A smoke-stained jacket and a box of matches. I've started out with worse.



    [​IMG]

    Nothing else to make note of at the moment, no skills, magic or tech.

    [​IMG]


    There's a graphic adventure element to this game that took some getting used to, interacting with the environment is done through this hand cursor. Click on something and a list of actions will pop up.


    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]


    A warehouse and a club, sounds like we had a fun night before getting geeked.



    [​IMG]


    Unfortunately the scalpel doesn't count as a weapon. I know, I was surprised as well.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    'It'll make ya slap happy!'' Disclaimer: Probably not.


    [​IMG]


    "Ho there chummers, do either of you-"


    [​IMG]


    "Eh?"


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    So yeah that just happened. On the plus side, I'm now free to investigate the office for clues.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Or would be, if most of the room wasn't just background fluff or locked.


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    And I doubt the mice are in any state to answer questions.


    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]


    Nope.

    [​IMG]


    Anyone remember the sequences in the early DRIVER games where Tanner got out of the vehicle? Our hero runs just as faggy. I thought the game was skipping animations at first.



    [​IMG]


    Marty McFly?


    [​IMG]


    Gang or hitmen; which is worse and why?



    The initial conversation starter-


    [​IMG]


    -and responses you get for choosing Talk are really just ways of introducing bolded words you can then ask for in-depth info about. So far this includes hitmen and firearm.


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    At the very least I now know that the attack wasn't a case of bad luck. The 'gang' was already after me.


    [​IMG]


    So I've got to figure out who I am, why people are being hired to kill me and where I can get a decent weapon to prevent that.


    [​IMG]


    But first...


    [​IMG]

    In this crazy dystopian world you gotta get your jollies wherever possible. Bonus points if it's at someone else's expense.


    [​IMG]


    Though that might be what the 'gang' thought when they jumped me.




    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The existence of the Matrix and even the most basic underpinnings of Shadowrun prove you pretty useless then.


    [​IMG]


    What organic compost heap did you crawl out from under?



    Most of these random NPCs are of course there for flavor and filler. Trying to ask about various topics you've acquired will just make them repeat their 2-3 lines or toss out an "I gave at the office."

    I think you should switch to internal screenshots instead of 16x9 format created by Fraps:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    :rpgcodex:

    You can make them by pressing F12 in Snes9x. In Zsnes hotkeys can be configurated.
    May require batch-resizing, but that should not be a problem...

    Thanks for the tip. I've got enough screenshots for an update or two, but after that I'll switch over to to Snes9x's shots and see how it looks.

    As I said before these samey looking schmoes aren't really a great resource for anything, info or otherwise. They're only trying to live out their simple 16-bit lives.



    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Also, they're incredibly rude.



    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    But maybe I just have some masochistic tendencies.


    [​IMG]


    The well of scintillating conversation runs dry, so I duck into the alley on the right.


    [​IMG]


    Which leads to a new building ripe for pillaging inspection.


    [​IMG]


    Fortune smiles on the very first try.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]Oh shit, son! The Runner's found me!


    Or not.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG] Yiiyiyiiiiiiiii!


    [​IMG]


    So that was a bust, and the other rooms are either locked or filled with identical psychos with guns. And for some reason there's no option to try and wang the scalpel at them.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Of course. But wait, is that the sound of opportunity knocking?


    [​IMG]


    I'm beginning to think this game won't include much looting of other people's property at all. I'm a sa~d panda.


    [​IMG]


    But just to the left of the monorail terminal is yet another apartment or office block. Really kind of hard to tell.


    [​IMG]


    Offices.


    [​IMG]


    Plot senses tingling!


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]Then again, I did just wake up surrounded by dead guys awhile ago.


    [​IMG]


    And soon it will be in mine. I thought I'd never get to take something else.


    [​IMG]


    There were an awful lot of locked apartments earlier...


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]Hello there, I've lost my memory and couldn't help noticing the dead man in the office next to yours. Could you help me figure some things out?


    .....


    [​IMG]You're about to shoot me, aren't you?

    [​IMG]



    [​IMG] Floit!



    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    When your body is full of holes and you can't find that good Peruvian ganja, a Slap Patch is fine too.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    I'm fit enough to hoof it to the next shooting!


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Alright, second verse same as first.


    [​IMG]


    Bingo.


    [​IMG]



    The familiar scents of unwashed laundry and hidden shame. Yep, must be home.


    [​IMG]


    :smug:


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]The future's so bright...



    [​IMG]


    Oh wow, enough to buy maybe a candy bar and a soda. I was going places.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]Jake? Is that...me?


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]



    What the frak were we involved in before the attack?


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Using your bed serves as both the save system and leveling interface, apparently. I've been using save states, so whatever.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Sure would be nice to have points to spend.

    There's an "uncensored" rom floating in the net. Although the differences are very few IIRC. This game was great, even though the combat had its problems. MOAR.

    You wanted MOAR? You got it! This one's almost the size of the first two put together. Enjoy, while I start forming index links.

    Edit: Now with super indexing action!




    So here's what I've figured out so far: The name is Jake Armitage, a Shadowrunner hired to do a courier run to Matrix Systems with some very important files. At least one rival group (Shadowrunners?) was hired to retrieve them from Jake who was clueless, having left before a contact called to tell him it was a trap. Said group were probably the ones who also killed the man in the office, I'm thinking a Mr. Johnson or another information broker who knew too much about the deal. Jake was attacked and left for dead. A number of clues remain including references to a warehouse, a nightclub and woman's phone number.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]



    After leaving the apartment building Jake hits the leftmost exit of Fountain Park. Wait a mo', is that-



    [​IMG]You're still here?


    [​IMG]Hey fuck you scab. I got problems cause I ate poor as a kid.





    [​IMG]


    Those are the fanciest doors so far.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]Hello? Look if you don't want me to raffle through your shit say something now.



    [​IMG]


    [​IMG] Yeah, sure, I am way past the point of caring on this.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]



    You skanky little guttersnipe.


    [​IMG]It's fine, I got this.



    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Yoink!


    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]What's a little industrial espionage between friends?



    [​IMG]



    Impressive.


    [​IMG] You come up with something then.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]Do you want something?


    *Sigh* Let's just go.



    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Story of my life.


    [​IMG]


    Further to the left is another office building, you'll get to see the facade when I leave.


    [​IMG]


    *Click*


    Aw hell.

    [​IMG]Told ya we'd find him again!

    [​IMG]Son you and I need to have a little chat about keeping your nose out of where it don't belong.



    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]Git!


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Guess Jake won't be calling to find out who 'Sassie' is just yet.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Oh thank you cyber-deities of the Matrix, an information broker. A live one.


    [​IMG]



    And he breaks the mold in that he's dispensing with lots of info for free. Gained topic hiring.



    [​IMG]


    500 nuyen? Hahahaha...Jake is fucked. I kinda wonder how much he used to charge for runs if 20 was all he had left in the stash. Gained topic negotiate.


    [​IMG]


    Gonna need a few points invested in people skills, methinks.


    [​IMG]


    What is it with Shadowrun titles where the first firearms source you find only has grenades? Is there a surplus?


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]Say, you happen to know anything about Lithuanians?


    [​IMG]


    Touchy subject even in the 16-bit era.


    [​IMG]


    Here's what the building looked like for those who care. Except...that window wasn't open.


    [​IMG]


    Don't just stand there you idiot, run! That cripple hit an alley at the bottom of the screen!


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]First rule: You don't talk about Lithuanian Hitmen.


    [​IMG]

    Ah the safety of a dark alleyway in a bad neighborhood. Good place to catch your breath, eh? Not so much. A few steps in there is a bang and accompanying girly scream.

    [​IMG] My giblets!

    [​IMG]


    Now this a conundrum. Either I stay in this alleyway and meet my fate at ground level-


    [​IMG]Your fate?


    or take my chances with the guy spraying bullets wildly out of a window.

    [​IMG]


    See ya shadowy figure!


    [​IMG]


    As luck would have it our window assailant got tired and turned in for a piss and a nap.


    [​IMG]


    And I see the perfect place to gossip and drown our sorrows.


    [​IMG]In tea.


    Whatever floats your boat.


    [​IMG]


    Not the place referenced by our box of matches, but filled with opportunity nonetheless. Let's mingle.


    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]


    Ooh, potential minion party member.



    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    He's not kidding, the only topics that garner responses are Shadowrunners and, of course, Hiring.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Do you take checks? Money orders?


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Doesn't he look awfully familiar?


    [​IMG]


    Yeah, the dead guy in the office.


    [​IMG]The corpse smelled better.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]M:


    [​IMG]



    For 20 nuyen I might be able to hire one to spit on me. But then I'd have no money to tip.


    [​IMG]




    About firearms, of course. Hey, don't bother telling me where I can find one. That's cool.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]Low bloodsugar. Gimme tea.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    I like that they actually animated him getting drinks and such, most games of the day would have just had it appear. Lazy bastards.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    What isn't?


    [​IMG]You're a glass half-empty kind of guy aren't you?


    Before you got a hold of it.


    [​IMG]



    Mage?


    [​IMG]



    Ah, noted. Wait, does the character system of this title allow you to lean toward one discipline over the other? Gained topic street doc.


    [​IMG]


    Their names and numbers would be....?


    [​IMG]


    I meant more along the lines of references and possible discount options, not job descriptions.


    [​IMG]


    His conversation tree shuts down after Shadowrunners.


    [​IMG]


    Still, I think that was a rather productive pub crawl.

    I've since found that out, and the reason will come up near the end of the next update. Which'll probably be sometime in the evening as I have a busy day.

    It wasn't until last night when I loaded up Shadowrun, left to get a drink and then came back that I found out about this little intro. If nothing else it definitely confirms the hitmen were fellow Shadowrunners. That party is only a thousand years from floppy wizard hats and 'hilarious' warrior/rogue banter.


    Think of this as a flashback that Jake just hasn't had yet;


    [​IMG]

    Doodle-loo-doodle-loo-doodle-loo





    [​IMG]


    [​IMG] -ne, but next week I get to choose what we do on our night off.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG] Time for some bitches. What? What?!


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    KILL IT WITH FIRE!


    [​IMG]


    Oh. Well that one can live then.


    [​IMG]


    Though she could have at least dragged me off to the sidewalk.


    [​IMG]


    Did the morgue guys just happen by, or do they actually comb the streets for dead bodies. I'm getting 19th century England vibes.


    Anyway now that we're caught up... on with the show!


    [​IMG]Back from the can, did I miss anything?


    Nothing important.



    [​IMG]


    Exit stage right.


    [​IMG]



    A long empty road and wrought iron gates. At least it's not another apartment building.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG] Curse my rampant curiosity.


    [​IMG]


    Well hello, not as deserted as I thought.


    [​IMG]


    Loyal to who? The Corporations?


    [​IMG]


    This club wouldn't happen to include Wastelands anywhere in the title, would it?


    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]Already had a lead colonic today. I wouldn't recommend it.






    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Y'know, the gargoyles really should have been a major tip-off. You only find those with graveyards or mansions. If it's an old mansion built on top of a graveyard, we're talking horror movie.


    [​IMG]


    ...speaking of horror movies, I now agree; your curiosity sucks.

    [​IMG]Cyber-punk future and I'm still beset by zombies.



    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    Fortunately for Jake's continued well-being (and that of the lp), this uprising is rather laughable. Zombies take seconds to rise, collapse after a few steps and their movement speed is terrible. Combine that with a lengthy lull between waves and I don't encounter much trouble looking for loot or reading pithy tombstone quotes. Except that there's none of either to be had.


    [​IMG]


    But I can't ignore that, and those mausoleums were my next target anyway.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]



    Holy shit-


    [​IMG]A situation where stabbing it with the scalpel might work?!


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]



    :yeah:


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]



    Bummer, check the other coffin. Rings and necklaces preferred but gold teeth or even fillings will do.



    [​IMG]



    $%@*&)&%. Should have seen this coming.


    [​IMG]


    What happened here goes without saying.


    [​IMG]


    Three chances, none of them worth a damn.



    [​IMG]

    But finally I make the right choice.


    [​IMG]Finding the person who called for help.


    [​IMG]

    Uh, yeah, that too.


    [​IMG]



    Be right with ya, buddy!


    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]



    Alright, now what's the problem?


    [​IMG]


    He has no mouth and he must scream.


    [​IMG] ?


    [​IMG]



    Maybe some of the paper scraps from my pack can form makeshift bandages...


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    What do I have that could work?


    [​IMG] About that-


    You thought of something.


    [​IMG]Remember what happened after we met that asshole in the white hat?



    [​IMG]


    Oh, yeah. Probably should've saved the Slap Patch.



    [​IMG]


    Well so long friend, I'll keep you in mind if I get my hands on any more of the damn things.




    [​IMG]


    Now I'm guessing that lady went further to the right...


    [​IMG] The street doc or the Jamaican over at the bar might be able to him.


    The Jamaican has the vid-phone glued to his ear while the street doc is retired, and I can't afford it anyway.



    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]



    Besides there are bigger, stinkier problems.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Much bigger.

    [​IMG] Guh.



    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Even if I had the skill, I think negotiation might be a wasted effort with this guy.


    [​IMG]I don't suppose you could loan me a credstick for the phone, then?

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]Monkey spit.

    Sorry, one of my wisdom teeth exploded and I've either been doped to the gills or sleeping for the last little while. This post is the largest yet so enjoy.



    [​IMG]


    Alright, so I need a ticket and and have no idea where to get one. But a handy source of information is just a few steps away.



    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Hello again everyone!



    "Stupid smeghead."

    "Too tired. Let me get a nap first."

    "I'M ON THE GODDAMN VIDPHONE ALL OF YOU SHUT UP!"


    [​IMG]


    So the dead guy was a Johnson. Knew it.


    [​IMG]


    To be fair not a very good one.


    [​IMG] Oi.


    Like you remember any different.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Not with the way Hamfist keeps eying me.



    [​IMG]


    Speaking of...


    [​IMG]


    My good pal the bartender is a miniature treasure trove of information with all these new topics, but unfortunately knows nothing about the ticket. He says he'll tell me if he learns anything.

    The rest of the clientele are even more useless.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Jake heard a few new things, just not what he needed. But there is someone who apparently has a ticket and might tell him where to get one.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]You're not stalking me, are you?


    [​IMG] I'm not that kind of guy.



    [​IMG]I guess you prefer hanging around graveyards, huh?




    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    If I had that pistol right now, would it be possible to shoot her and take that ticket? Choices and Consequences babe.


    I didn't bother uploading any of the information broker's turn, it provides nothing new. That means unless the alleyway shootout is somehow involved, my best chance is still at the bar. There are two people who have yet to be any help at all, and it's a good bet something from my inventory will change that.



    [​IMG]



    First up, the lazy ass.


    [​IMG]

    Tempting. If I hear 'maybe later' one more time...



    [​IMG]



    [​IMG] No, we are not wasting that on him!


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG] Oh you bastard.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG] See this Cyberdeck? I'm going to feed it to you for dessert.


    Hush.


    [​IMG]


    Fucking jackpot.


    [​IMG]


    Gained topics Maria and Grinder.


    [​IMG]


    With such a lovely decor and friendly populace I can't imagine why.


    [​IMG] I'd put my money on rabies.


    What, dogs?


    [​IMG] Orcs.


    [​IMG]


    Dun dun duuuuuuun! Gained topic Lone Star.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG] I wasted a good drink for this?





    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Looks I'm going back to where this little adventure began. I haven't seen my friends at the morgue for awhile.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG] 'Lo there fella, what are you doing all cooped up?

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG] Why don't we change that?


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG] You're welcome?


    [​IMG]


    He even left a tip.


    [​IMG] Hah hah. Dog collars haven't been in style since my teens. I think.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    No screams, twitches, nothing?


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    A pair of sunglasses is all it took for their zombie overlord to be unrecognizable?


    [​IMG]


    Mouthy bastard. Liked him better when all he did was scream and lock himself in the office.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    But what does your friend have to say?


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Not a damn thing, it turns out.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    And unfortunately the only slab that's interactive at the moment...

    [​IMG]


    ...is my own. I already picked it clean ages ago.


    [​IMG]


    It was too much to hope my scalpel would always serve as a decent door opener.


    The morgue's a dead end at the moment, I've already asked everyone at the bar and the street babe is annoying just like every other woman so far. Which leaves the Informtion Broker.

    [​IMG]


    Asking about Maria or Grinder results in the usual 'get out of here' response, but Lone Star rings a bell.


    [​IMG]


    Money problems are really beginning to bite me in the ass.


    [​IMG]


    Credit-blocked again.


    [​IMG]


    I'm eighty credits short, with only one place that hasn't been hit yet. The alley.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG] This is where you let me sleep a bit to top off my health, right?


    No time, chummer. You'll just have to make do.


    [​IMG] I had a feeling you'd say that.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG] I'm doing this under protest.


    Noted.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG] Big goddamned orc.



    [​IMG]


    That poor socially maladjusted cripple. At least he dropped something that will open up a lot of opportunities in the future.


    [​IMG] He also gained height, changed both the style of his hair and its color, and switched clothes. How'd he do that before he hit the ground?


    No time to think about it, make a run for the gun!

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG] I should have just stayed on the slab and taken a nap.



    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Fuck the numbers, I just shot you in the face! Go down!


    [​IMG]


    Note to self: Put a point or two into the Firearms skill. Shooting twelve times for one hit is not fun.


    [​IMG]


    Finally the filthy greenskin assassin drops.


    [​IMG] And also changes. Seriously, what the hell? How do the morgue flunkies tell anyone apart?


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG] What is this stuff? Ew!


    Better bogie encrusted protection than none.


    [​IMG] You're not the one who has to wear it.


    Oh go back to bleeding out.

    [​IMG]


    I'll say.


    [​IMG]Frackin' scab...


    Wait are you still alive?


    [​IMG]Bluh! *Dies*


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    No news like outdated alleyway n-


    [​IMG]


    -what is that?


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG] I have this really shiny collar if you're interested. Please don't hurt me.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    You mind if I ask a few things to clarify that statement?


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG] I think he does.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG] It's probably best if I left. Like, right now.



    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]


    [​IMG] I can't even begin to tell you how much better this feels. So now what?


    Now we begin stockpiling credits the only way that's left.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG] Son, I thought we had an understanding.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG] Deal's changed.

    I'm switching over to internal Snes9x shots from the next post onward, we'll see how those look.
