Shadowrun's Achievement List & New Screens

While nobody can really say if PC gamers will embrace achivement points, it seems likely they will. Many already spend colossal amounts of time plugging away for experience points in MMOs, performing all sorts of strange tasks in order to get that one reagent to drop, or to level up that one weapon skill. Well, same deal with the achievement points. You do lots of weird stuff and get rewarded; pretty basic. Yet on the Xbox 360 the meta-game of achievement grinding roots itself deeper and deeper in X360 gamers' minds every day, spurring some to go out and buy King Kong and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles just because their achievements are so easy to unlock. It's a strange fascination since achievement points don't do anything. They just sit there, a public aggregate, a numerical representation of your dedication to gaming, or embarrassing reminder of how you spend your time.

Full achievement requirement details and new screens available.

Those new pics look a lot better than what I played on the beta for sure! This game is a must buy for me though because I love the feel of the controls and the fact that no matter how many times I played the beta I actually just kept coming back for more!

I just hope I can unlock the achievements in public/player matches instead of ranked since i really dont like to play ranked anymore because of cheaters(Halo 2 anyone?) and not being able to play with friends as a team as it becomes more fun IMO with your friends. Cant wait to pwn some pc players and anyone know how many players can play in a single match? 6v6? 8v8? 10v10? They did say in the article 4v4 + more.
