It's been a great month for games.

When the game is only on PC, you know it will be well optimized

PC Gamers deserve a good PC title after a series of unoptimized ports ... and what way to reward other than the Remake of the OG immersive sim?

Sonic1881116d ago (Edited 116d ago )

I agree! Agian if it's a *PC exclusive* it's almost guarantee it will be well optimized with no issues

93% positive reviews on Steam so far. The top reviews don't mention performance issues either.

However, the game is only launching on PC first - there still are plans according to them to hit console, even Xbox One. It is good though that they clearly prioritized PC and whatever happens to the console versions is secondary to this PC build.

this is the game I would love to have on PSVR2 although I know it wont happen. The original scared the crap out of me as a kid and cant imagine the experience in VR haha.

That's up in the air, in my opinion. NightDive is a pretty PC centric developer.
Even when they're asked about it, they're very vague about how they answer.

They may be mulling over the idea of it but, if it happens, I'd be surprised if it's any less than a couple years down the road. They didn't even really try for solid controller support on PC. It's rough to try to play with one.

Did they do any work with the AI? AI is usually the most dated feature of older games.

autoglope116d ago

na it is about as shitty as it was in 90''

anast116d ago

They charged for a rerelease.

autoglope116d ago (Edited 116d ago )

I does not resonate with me at all,..will need to watch walktrough,.. because I am stuck,.. I have no problem with insane mape design,.. but this is kinda insane with all the totally random respawning enemies,..

anast116d ago

They just re-released it. If they would have improved it, it would resonate. The game is stuck in the past.

Another quality horror remake is upon us

Now it’s Silent Hill 2’s turn next

Shadowrun 2007 almost had a System Shock-style singleplayer campaign

But Microsoft said no.

I'm not surprised I hope if Microsoft is more open to these things.

That would have been fun, so they said no.


System Shock (PC) Review | VGChartz

VGChartz's Paul Broussard: "Ultimately, I come away from my return trip to Citadel Station feeling very whelmed. It’s very clear that this is a remake primarily for people who feel like the original title has aged like a fine wine (barring its older aesthetics). Unfortunately, it’s tough for me to feel that same level of appreciation. I appreciate System Shock for laying the groundwork for future immersive titles, but it definitely feels dated now, and the few changes made in the remake are a mixed bag that don’t do enough to fix its problems, while also adding new ones of their own. If you’re looking for a chance to experience a significant portion of gaming history, or are part of the group that feels the general design of System Shock has aged well, then this is likely worth a serious look. For anyone else, consider waiting for a sale or skipping it altogether."

System Shock Review: Keeping Things Old-School | Hey Poor Player

System Shock is unapologetically old-school, keeping the core of a nearly thirty-year-old game while mainly focusing on visual and presentation upgrades with a few quality-of-life additions around the edges.
