    Seems that everyone is jumping on the "FPS as RPG" formula for the quick cash dash.

    Sigh.

    The sins of the money grubbing game devs have become too much (I am having more difficulty forgiving them). Does anyone have any ideas on what the fallout community can do to prevent such and atrocity from happening to our series? How can we get the point across that in order to make a mainstream game they do not have to make it a sucky game?

    Total trash. No real Shadowrun fan wants this and I doubt the people who this game does appeal to (teen console trash) have even heard of Shadowrun.

    A pointless license that rapes the Shadowrun universe for some quick money, pissing off all the real shadowrun fans along the way.

    I used to be against Ritalin, but now I'm all for it. In fact, I think they should start giving it to the majority of kids in the world. Chemically induced longer attention spans and it's associated rise in intelligence is the only way we'll ever see RPG's or any other games with any kind of depth come back into fashion.

    Just pointing out the fact that FPS/RPG hybrids can work. I only skimmed over the Shadowrun forum thing, so I figured that's what all of this was about.

    It has zero RPG elements Malk, it's a team based FPS, they just added the Shadowrun license half way production to try to lift awereness of the project , nothing else.

    And Deus Ex was originally a fps/rpg hybrid. Shadowrun was something entirely different.

    Not just a team based FPS...

    An online-only, team based, capture the flag, FPS. There is less than zero RPG elements. No story mode, No single player (the only single player mode is just bots put into your map), just mindless combat.

    Oh yeah and that's not to mention that they went back and rewrote the history of the gameworld, place you 50 years BEFORE the Shadowrun stories take place...

    Shadowrunners and Shadowruns don't even exist in this alternate frag-fest world they've created. So why is it called "Shadowrun" again?

    This thing is so bad that, honestly, Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel was much more true to the orignial than this is to Shadowrun.

    We could form a company(legit, not like some of the fan made things) and get the license to Fallout, then do with it what we want.

    Or we could all form together and send them our opinions on what is good and what isn't. Kind of like petitioning something. Don't think it would work to well, but couldn't hurt to try. :)
