    Guys, remember this is a different team in Austin. All death wishes and Schadenfreude is exceedingly premature.

    I wanna see Shock 3 getting through. More so than this pointless Shock 1 remake.

    The concepts they showed for the cancelled version of the remake were quite good. The problem is that it wasn't the thing that was promised on Kickstarter.

    They should have done what was promised first and then used it as a launch pad for future projects.

    There is plenty of funding for games like this and teams like this.

    Nice way of saying "After the UA disaster we realize attempting another Kickstarter would be an embarrassment."

    usually it would, but Starbreeze is probably going to be defunct soon.

    So obviously the plan is to draw this out long enough for Starbreeze to go under and not pay them back a penny.

    backer rewards other than minor ingame things(other than for very large backer amounts) are stupid, nobody cares about them
    the last thing backers want is you to waste your money on physical merchandise

    2K is a proper home for SS3.

    Does this have any chance of not being a dumbed down shitty Bioshock alternative anyway? I can't see how that is even possible.

    "We're confident we can bring System Shock 3 to market and have it take its place as a leading title in the immersive simulation genre."

    LOL

    This game will look like cheap shovelware compared to Prey if it ever releases, mark my words

    Say that to Paul Neurath and OtherSide Boston.

    2K's parent company (Take-Two) is already funding somewhat similar games: the next BioShock (2K), The Outer Worlds (Private Division), and Ken Levine's sci-fi so-called immersive sim (Ghost Story Games).

    I kinda hope it sucks. A world where a reboot isn't shit would be so strange my head would explode. Also would people still want to play a tightly packed corridor shooter now? I would rather more STALKER. SS3 would have to be really good and there is just no way... It would need good and aggressive AI, finely balanced so you are always scared of running out of ammo. Multiple weapons that work in very different ways, some completely ineffective against some targets, etc. Some puzzling as well as just shooting stuff. I haven't seen a game like that for 30 years. I think at best this would be more SS2 in a modern engine which would not be ok. SS2 (especially SS1) were so special because of how advanced they were for the time. You can't just remake the same thing again all this time later and expect it to be a legit sequel. It would have to be as advanced today as it was back then, and that would take more than an indie budget.

    Hmm. I got bored playing games like that a long time ago. I need a FPS with hardly any shooting.
