Thumbs up FASA Founder Acquires 'MechWarrior,' 'Shadowrun' and 'Crimson Skies' Licenses

Dream comes true!!!!!!!
Quote:
FASA founder Jordan Weisman has bought back the rights to MechWarrior, Shadowrun, Crimson Skies and the other properties of the FASA catalog after the recent closure of the FASA Interactive studios by Microsoft. Weisman also launched Smith & Tinker which now owns the licenses, and while it is too early to announce future plans, the goal is to surprise and delight old fans, while welcoming new fans to these fantastic worlds.

I think I would rather have a good Shadowrun RPG than world peace.

AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


*sh!ts himself*

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NEW SHADOWRUN GAME PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is exactly what I hoped would happen with the last "Shadowrun" game. I hoped that it would either be surprisingly good and spur a new line of shadowrun games, or that it would suck so bad the IP would be worthless and a developer with some sense could afford to pick it up.

MY PRAYERS HAVE BEEN ANSWERED!!!

OMG, that's really good news. Now I just hope that they won't just make games for the consoles. I want MechWarrior 5 or whatever for the PC.
