    Have any of our Japanese-speaking friends played the Mega CD Shadowrun? I know there's a rom of it floating around. Is it as potentially awesome as it sounds? From the GameSetWatch article:

    True but the issue is you cannot create a MMORPG that offers a unique experience for 6 million people, the best you can do is offer different rides.

    The issue with MMORPGs is how unless you can invest a great deal of time you cannot play it, I played WoW but during graveyard shift time so my sever was pretty much empty of players and my choices was really get working on my social skills and get a network of friends and/or change my playing hours or just quit.

    Also no matter what it is still a game, eventually the end game content is the same for everyone, updates are the only way to keep going but people end up running out of things to do since its impossible to output new content at the same speed its being completed.

    ....

    i m a big shadowrun fan yet the first game that springs into my mind when thinking about shadowrun as a computer game isnt some kind of Fallout or Deus ex like gameplay (though obviously both would be pretty viable and interesting as well... dont get me wrong) but rather something like X-Com (the first part obviously) or jagged alliance.

    sadly if anything is more unpopular on the current market then real cRPGs it must be games like X-com/JA for whatever stupid reason....

    This might sound blasphemous, but I would love a Crimson Skies MMO. It has all the prerequisites, upgradable planes, blimps as bases, huge battles, and the setting is not done to death.

    I think VtM:Bloodlines -like gameplay would fit with Shadowrun quite good.

    No, i think you're right. Nearly all of the licenses that Weisman picked up would be solid MMO settings. Shadowrun, Crimson Skies, Battletech...as a designer i would love to get a crack at turning those settings into game systems.

    Smith & Tinker are a spin-off company of 42 entertainment (of the Ilovebees and "The Beast" ARG fame). It's Jordan Weisman's project and is aiming to combine what they learned in making ARGs with his knowledge of model gaming, pen and paper gaming, and computer gaming. When he says he wants to re-invent gaming, It's hard for me to disregard it.

    This is the same guy who wasn't impressed with how miniature gaming was going and invented Heroclix to change things up. His ILoveBees arg was actually more entertaining than Halo2 turned out to be. So I'm curious to see what he does to change things up with the gaming world.

    I would eat someone's first born child live on the internets for another Mechwarrior game.
