RPG Backtrack - Episode 152: Shock to the System

edited October 2015 in Latest Updates
Back in the day, first person shooters didn't come with RPG elements very often. System Shock and its sequel bucked the trend of 90s FPS titles by having some, and now they can both be played without resorting to shadowy tricks.
Death to cameras!
It's not what he's eating, but what's eating him that makes it ... sort of interesting.

    Don't have anything to say about the System Shock games other than I've heard of them, as SS2 is often highly recommended.

    What I do have to say is that I am one of that 2% that visits the site from a linux platform. Sort of. My home and work computers are both Win7, but at work I use a Ubuntu virtual machine for all my personal website navigation and some other stuff.

    It would be a hoot if, instead of a dozen comments about System Shock, we got two dozen comments about the awesomeness of Linux. Just sayin' :P

    According to a 5 second Google search, it's theoretically possible to run Steam games or World of Warcraft on Linux using "Wine". Presumably this involves pouring alcohol on your computer.

    I'll stick with Windows, thanks.

    Do those of you who have played System Shock 2 and Bioshock agree or disagree with Escapist reviewer Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw's claim that "Bioshock isn't 'like' System Shock 2, it IS System Shock 2"?
