Default Anyone excited about a proper Shadowrun remake?

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...dowrun-returns

I remember playing this on the SNES when I was a kid... hope they do a really good job of the remake. I was worried they weren't going to get the funding, but they went up about $300,000 overnight! And they still have 3 weeks to go. I tried to donate... but they don't take Paypal yet. Shame. I'll def buy it though.

That story sounds intriguing - I think I'd buy something like that.

Sounds awesome. Also, I'm sure it was mentioned but Overhaul Games is remaking Balder's Gate for OSX and iPad.

Ignore the 90's graphics. Watching a vid doesn't do the game justice. It had hacking / puzzles like in Deus ex. Real time combat, I guess a bit like Dragon Age. Can't remember if you could pause it during combat. It has magic, guns, rpg style upgrades for weapons n armor. As I recall, the story was pretty good too. And you can get bodyguards with fox tails!
