    System Shock 2 now on Steam - Eva just creamed himself

    http://store.steampowered.com/app/238210

    Finally on Steam then eh?

    Anyway, before I go digging up threads, the "2" in this game's title implies to me I'd be missing something by not playing it's predecessor. Is that true?

    Does it run on windows 7 and does it support 1920x1080 resolution?

    I might have to get this as it's mentioned so frequently here.

    @SirGrim Steam have it listed as Vista/7/8 compatible.

    Expect a deluge of links to mods and high-res texture packs in 3, 2, 1...

    Yup, you're not missing out by not having played SS1. SS2 however is an essential game to every RPG fan's career.

    I already have it on GOG so ZZZZZZZ at this news.

    Right, so I gather. So the two are somewhat unrelated? SS2 doesn't make references to SS1? It's not a continuation of story from SS1?

    System Shock 1 was a brilliant game for its time, but it would be very difficult for a new player to get in to. Very outdated mechanics and controls. SS2 is vastly superior and works perfectly well as a stand alone title.

    The games are linked in many ways but knowledge/experience of the first isn't necessary to both understand and enjoy the second as it's not a direct continuation as such. If you're willing to give it a go I'd definitely recommend trying SS1 but as cryocore says, it's quite difficult to play now if you aren't familiar with it already.

    Generally speaking, I'd say just forge ahead with SS2 and not worry about the first.

    I completed only 13% of SS2. thank you for reminding me to finish this masterpiece. My ADHD, and around 50 other games I had in my collection in around 2001 made me suddenly throw this one into the to play again one winters day again. lol.

    They need to reboot or make a sequel to this. System Shock trademark is in legal dispute, I'd have no problem if they called it Cyber Shock or something.

    I didn't know it was on GOG and steam appears to be cheaper until the 18th.

    It does, but you can probably catch up with most of SS1's contribution to it by watching the intro.

    Thanks man, I might be able to stomach it with these.

    Had a really hard time getting into it last time I played, which was my third or fourth attempt.
