Old School cyber-shooter/RPG redux.

Here's the description from GOG:

About: System Shock: Enhanced Edition also includes the classic version of the game.
You're a renowned hacker, the most notorious cyberspace thief in the corporate world. Caught during a risky break-in, you become indentured to Diego, a greedy Trioptium exec who bankrolls a rare cyberjack implant operation. After six months in a healing coma, you awaken to the twisted aftermath of a terrible disaster. Where are the surgeons? Why is the station in such disrepair? Slowly, the chilling realization that something is very wrong creeps over you.
Once a prime corporate research facility, Citadel now teems with mindless cyborgs, robots and terribly mutated beings, all programmed to serve SHODAN, a ruthless A.I. There's scarcely time to think before it unleashes the first terror...
Exactly twenty one years after its first release, System Shock is back!
The Enhanced Edition adds a modern touch to this true classic gem, without taking anything from its unmistakable atmosphere.
See for yourself that the game that has been called the benchmark for intelligent first-person gaming, has lost nothing of its ability to keep you on the edge of your seat.
System Shock: Enhanced Edition features:
- Higher resolution support: up to 1024x768, and 854x480 widescreen mode.
- Mouselook support added.
- Remappable keys with three profiles to choose from: original controls, custom controls, and lefthanded controls.
- Some original game bugs fixed.
Rocket through cyberspace to steal information, hack security and grapple with watchdog defense programs enslaved to a maniacal computer.
Survive battle after battle against armies of killer cyborgs and deadly robots as you collect hardware attachments, life-sustaining patches and deadly weapons to combat mindless mutants.
Test your intelligence by solving puzzles, rewiring access panels and outwitting SHODAN in its own cyber-realm.
Enjoy the vastly improved controls and graphics of the Enhanced Edition - or keep your experience as close to the original as possible with the Classic version.

If anyone would like to post up the link, that would be appreciated. I'm working via mobile at the moment, but wanted to let the 'boomies know about this special. thumbsup

I'm playing System Shock 2 right now. Here is the link Trail was referring to for this game from the dark ages back in 1994.

Thanks Drac! Yes, from back in the dark ages. I would play this game by candlelight. Back then, we'd have to harvest the bits and bites in order to fire up the ol' cypher'n box (that's what they called PCs back then) lol

That was my attempt at sounding like Homer's father from "The Simpsons" grin

System Shock 2 is the best game I have ever played. I never got through the first game though, due to complex controls and some compatibility issues on my computer. This have most likely been taken care of in this enhanced version. However, I will wait for the remake which will be out next year.

I loved System Shock 2 and tried to play the first game but didn't get far. I hear the enhanced version is not that much improved, so will wait and check out the remake.

The planned relelase for the remake is second quarter of 2018:

It's made in close collaboration with the makers of the original game. And as if that wasn't enough, System Shock 3 has been confirmed:

The project leader is Paul Neurath, the founder of the original System Shock creator Looking Glass Studios.

Thank you, Mikael! That's pretty exciting - I had no idea System Shock 3 was in the works.

The rumours about SS3 have been around for so long they've become apocryphal. Is it really true??? Because that would be AWESOME.
