    It's also hard to build 3D envionments in those games for quests. Shadowrun Returns being tile-based with pre-fab pieces will help with that aspect of questing. This helped Legend of Grimrock have some pretty cools custom dungeons.

    I know right. Tried so many times, defeated on every outing by not being willing to fight against the interface. Fuck porting Baldur's Gate into the NWN2 engine, let's port NWN2 into the BG2 engine.

    FYI, "The Lost Lamb" is made by a professional game developer (as in, works for a game company as a technical director and has already shipped some games). The other 'big mod project' is Shadowrun:Identity, which is basically remaking official Shadowrun modules (with the blessing of the creators) for SRR... which means that they will probably end up decent-to-good even if the individual SRI modders aren't stellar.

    Of course MY module will be the bestestest of them all. :smug:

    It was meant to be a joke, friendo.

    I couldn't agree more.

    I don't trust mod-reviewers since they're likely to err on the side of the positive. I'm more likely to get negatives from user impressions of professional products.

    Nice.

    I don't trust the quality of official Shadowrun modules for the following reasons:

    Don't forget her husband, Chris Hepler.

    PS since you know how I love going above and beyond, here are the modules the Hepler team contributed:

    Apocalypse now?

    "one of which manages to kidnap him without the runners noticing" Nice.

    We are arguing about what the official reaction is going to be, obviously.

    stab in the dark: widespread hate until the third or fourth official module comes out, at which point the spergs will start fondly recalling the good old days of Shadowrun Returns: Seattle before all this new Tokyo shit came along

    Using the Codex General Reaction cue cards is cheating.

    You only need to unlock the game on steam once. There is no other DRM, AFAIK

    A lot of people (or, well, a caterwauling minority) consider having to use Steam at all unacceptable DRM. Which is sort of true, even though you could then just set it to offline mode and use it forever with no Steamly interference. I don't know. Sometimes I think indie gamers act like Waco survivalists.

    Don't read, play or do anything ever again. You might be met with disappointment.

    I understand. However, blame the devs of shadowrun for betraying and double crossing their funders in the name of greed and capitalism.

    Also, just curious (I honestly don't fully get how steam works) : If you purchase and install the game from steam, could you then uninstall steam and still play?

    kinda fitting, don't you think

    Maybe but it is extremely unlikely. The steam version of EU3 for example works without steam running, but most steam games don't. It apparently depends how much the game is integrated with steam.

    This is the Codex. You just point your anger at the first person to come to mind.
