System Shock is one of the most revered, iconic franchises for PC gaming. One of the first games to thoroughly explore the trope of the rampant AI in a fully realized world (be it lore or mechanics-wise), it has left a taste of grandeur on those that actually got to play it before some of us gamers became too blindsided by pretty, current graphics.

Developer OtherSide Entertainment, who have the rights to develop further worlds in the franchise, have just released a pre-alpha gameplay teaser that at least serves to give us a taste of their art and mood direction. I got some flashbacks to the first Dead Space game whilst watching this, but that might just be me. This really does look like one of the darkest renditions of AI-powered reckonings we've seen to date. Here's hoping for a good, engaging storyline. Check out the teaser after the break.

Seems like more of a remake than a sequel. Still looks cool. A bit gory and nasty for my taste...

I agree on the gore. My opinion's usually aren't all that popular...so when I say I felt the same about Dead Space and Doom...I'm sure there will be detractors. There's a line I don't feel comfortable crossing and these type of games are now doing it. What are the ramifications? I don't know...The heebie jeebies? :).

My conscience(or whatever is inside of us, our Soul? I don't know...) starts speaking up and disturbing my peace. That's when I know I've seen enough...:).

Again...might not be the popular opinion...but it IS mine.

Storyline looks about the same. I can't remember if this is a remake or some form of sequel. I'm sure Ford or RTWJunkie will step in and correct us on that soon enough.

Best,

I sure hope it's not gonna end up like Nightdive Studios System Shock remake... Raised 1.5M in 2016, promised a release in 2017, changed direction from remake to semi-sequel right before expected release date, ran out of cash and started desperate hunt for more by advertising their "old-new" engine, refreshing the refresh of a refresh of SS2, licensing SS rights to Otherside Entertainment (with financial help from Starbreeze, and ... Atari? :D ), and still not delivered few months short of 2020.

I like the game's footage, and I have more reassurance from the fact that it's financially backed by investors (substantially, I may say), but there are some red flags which may or may not manifest in the final quality (e.g. being a rushed cashgrab)...

This is just a trailer obviously, but Id rather have it be more psychological horror then... lets say Doom.

I've actually watched both being played, at length. Both are well done but neither have what you might call a "Grand Finish/Ending/Climax". That's not to say there isn't storyline, because there is and it's interesting in both titles. Effectively, both are a gruntload of mini-missions stitched together(very well and cohesively). Not my personal cup of tea, but lots of people like that kind of game dynamic. If this is your thing, you will be delighted will both!

I believe that was the original intent of this games kickstarter as well.

Kinda looking forward to this. Looks like it is materializing well.

I think you are confusing it with Nightdive studios kickstarter for SS remake. There was a whole conundrum around this thing: campaign was funded specifically for a remake, and after picking up some steam and additional funding, Nightdive totally ignored KS crowd and went with "a completely new experience" and dumped Unity in favor of UE4 in order to realize this dream.

jaggerwild...

I haven't played either of these titles and don't know anything about them.

In the past, I've avoided the Tom Clancy type games(Splinter Cell is coming to mind) because of the 3rd person perspective. Traditionally....I've never liked to purchase or support companies that develop games only in 3rd person. Although...I do play games like Fallout/Skyrim that allow you to play in first or third person, but that's about it really.

Why don't I like the 3rd person perspective? I actually do like it, when it's done correctly, but that's rather rare. Batman Arkham Asylum is a game that is done properly, most games are not so they leave me with a constant claustrophobic feeling that I'm not seeing enough of what's going in the world, or the character is too small AND feels too far away in the screen. The camera doesn't pan correctly etc etc. I can go on and on...I actually have a long list of pet peeves with 3rd person gaming, but I can sum it up succinctly.

If the 3rd person perspective breaks game immersion...then the title isn't for me. Sadly....that's usually the case 9 out of 10 times.

Not to mention...with my health the way it is....I haven't been able to game as much as I'd like. I get dizzy too damn easy any more. I attempted to play Singularity, Homefront, and Dishonoured over the last month or two only to have to stop because of nausea &/or dizziness. Quite disappointing....

So...to sum up jaggerwild, I'm probably the last guy you should be asking about titles! :). That's what RTWJunkie and Ford are for....;).

Take care,

Liquid Cool
