Have any of you taken a look at this? Man, I played the heck out of the PNP version back in the early 90's.

 

it actually looks pretty damn cool. Only thing that would make it better is a multiplayer option. Which they said it was built for but they couldn't make it for launch.

 

There is a creation tool so GM's can make their own adventures. Check it out.

I kickstartered it and have it all downloaded, haven't sat down and got into it. Looks very promising and the type of RPG I've been itching for. Give me a day or too and I'll likely post a further review and opinion on it.

That would be interesting.  It's always struck me as either 'cool+cool=supercoo'l or 'too much of a good thing', but I've never played in this setting and don't have any of the material so have never been able to come down on one side of the fence.

It's because I'm so very angry, Monkey. I'm angry all the time. I'm like Bruce Banner in the Avengers. Angry at this game because I can't decide what character I want to play.

Alright, this afternoon, sitting down and playing this. It'll be the first game I've played upon release in a long time. Also, I'll get kickstarter benefits, like free doc wagon :D

Bad-ass cross-dressing street samuri of Japanese origin called Aunty Hiro.

 

Next question.

Funny, I went Street Samurai too, a Troll who runs by the name of Oni Ken. Might not be the smartest idea, Shadowrun is a game all about seeking cover when the bullets are firing, but I'm gonna try to play him as a melee specialist.

Just finished the game as a street sam gun specialist.  Fun, but struck me as kinda short.  Especially with the karma dump near the end levels it seems like they could have done a longer game with all that.  Though I suppose I could have missed more than the 2 or 3 optional things I know I missed and it was all from that.  On the bright side there are I think 2 cities that got funded with the kickstarter that are still coming and no doubt plenty of fan made stuff.  Apparently someone is already converting the snes game.
