    I don't mean between-mission resets, that's fair enough. But they also reset (at least for the bots) inside the missions, when you e.g. get to another dungeon floor if that floor is represented as a separate map.

    Isn't there a codex pet theory that HBS took over VTMB2? FPS fits the perspective..

    A mystery, but they've been working on a horror game since 2019 and their job listings made it clear it was going to be turn-based https://rpgcodex.net/forums/threads...-discussion-thread.106230/page-5#post-6474192

    Calling it FPS may just be their idea of a joke (would be rather odd for Paradox to buy the Battletech and Shadowrun people and tell them to make a game in an entirely different genre). :P

    At one point Mitch Gitelman said they were working on two games, so the horror game isn't necessarily the turn-based one. After three years of radio silence who knows what's going on there though.

    This explains the abysmal drop in quality between shadowrun games and battletech. Very sad.

    Many such cases. The vidyagaem industry has a notoriously high turnover rate, mostly due to notoriously shit working conditions. Those poor assholes need unions.

    Yeah, unpaid interns do all the work, boss takes all the credit, everyone praises boss and belittle interns for being entitled. Capitalism 101.

    HBS's glassdoor reviews are 100% positive filled with nothing but people who talk about what a great place it is to work. :M

    Just fucking tease something already. They were pumping out game news quite frequently before they were bought out and now turned into mutes.

    Easy to do when you're crowdfunding and your own publisher. Now they have to abide by Paradox's marketing strategy.

    Hmmm, the Shadowrun games are coming to Nintendo Switch next year, published by Paradox:

    Make VtMB2 for us, and we'll publish all your previous games on all platforms. (Maybe)

    Dragonfall was EXCELLENT. Imho, the best iso RPG in the last 15 years at least. These people need to get back to making more of that type of game.

    I found even hong kong still pretty fun, even though it's not as good as DF.

    hong kong had the best team for sure. racter and gaichu > everyone else. i also always put gobbet in the team as the token female. that lolsorandumb gamer girl is0bel and that whiny fag duncan were left behind at the base.
    the dragonfall team was just okay. i didn't like dietrich and blitz. eiger wasn't bad i hated her at first but she got better. glory was my waifu. my ideal shadowrun team would honestly be gaichu, racter and glory. wish i could just shoot the rest.

    I think a Dragonfall type game with actual exploration (ie larger freeform maps with optional content) would be the bee's knees.

    Hong kong is a better game than dragonfall,don't know why people prefer df over it. Maybe they just dropped the games and didn't play the HK. In all aspects it is a better game.

    That minigame on the Matrix segments was awful though.

    Hong Kong doesn’t get enough love. The setting, premise, and characters were more interesting to me than in DF.

    There’s a lot of potential in HBS Shadowrun that has yet to be realized. I really hope they haven’t dropped the series for good. 2 games is not enough.
