    chances are i've said this a thousand times before, but the new ss2ee models look like low budget unity mobile game assets. they have the same flat handpainted look every cheap indie game does now and it looks fucking rancid
    i honestly think rebirth's models look better, and that's not a great sign considering rebirth is HOPW ROEWUR NE-core at its finest (unless you install this and this. then it's fine :>)
    because nightdive are greedy inept sellout cunts lol

    You're entitled to your honest opinion and yeah, rebirth's midwife would come p close to being able to replace the face that never remembered.

    I am a fan of the dark engine aesthetic so I think changing that up is a bit sacrilege but I do like how faithful the new models are. I think you guys are tripping if you prefer how that crap rebirth mod looks, although I do respect it on the principle that the mod doesn't charge you money for a model swap.

    It's clearly a beanie if you look at the actual texture:

    I'll be honest. As a gay guy, I think the old model is a lot more attractive. They just made him look like a nerd with the new model.

    i too become irreversibly rock-hard whenever i look at this perfectly chiseled masterpiece of a visage, goggles is a total fucking stud. nightdive's travesty of a "replacement" model is so low-t it's simply insulting

    Just for shiggles I reinstalled my GoG version of this, plus these https://www.systemshock.org/index.php?topic=4447.0 , just to keep it simple.
    I planned to play perhaps through the end of Sci/Med bug got sucked in as far as Deck 4. This game holds up very well and shames many current titles...after 2 freakin' decades.
    :negative:

    As mentioned above, Prey is a respectable modern SS2 ripoff/clone/homage and surprisingly good coming from Bethesda, but SS2 is still king.

    Arkane Studios made Prey 2017.
    Bethesda Softworks was the publisher.

    What about getting System Shock 1 (remaster, reboot whatever it is) done?
    Does NightDive have 500 ppl working there?

    They have two teams. KEX (remaster) team and SS remake team. You probably can say the profits from what KEX team did feed SS remake team.
