    This is incorrect.

    Because this is a remake and not a remaster, there will be details that are different within the story and gameplay. It's really only a matter to what degree these differences will vary from exact reproduction.

    Even though I expect a tight remake of System Shock, don't be surprised, for example, if some of the keycodes are different, or that the audio logs have been changed to support slightly altered subnarratives.

    It would be a bit surprising to change that particular one, though, wouldn't it? Wasn't it the first? Kicked off quite a thing, really.

    Yeah, they're not going to change the tip-of-the-hat to Looking Glass...you can bet on that.

    Nonetheless, there will be some minor changes to the details of gameplay and story...resulting in a positive or negative effect.

    There's no reason for that door code to not be 451, remake or remaster notwithstanding. You'd only change it if you wanted to symbolise the fucking over of tradition, which this no longer is considering the reversion to the original aesthetic and the hullabaloo from SS fans about their prior ambitions.

    Yes yes but let's not stray from the real question here: is it worthy of a "lol", or should we banish Pyrian from the forums forever?

    No reprieve for Pyrian until he explains himself.

    As we like to say over here, he's just shit stirring.

    Alternative explanation: He stupidly forgot that 451 was the original code for that door, thought Night Dive was being clever, and is now being too much of a pansy to admit his mistake.

    Hey, I thought of something funnier than 451:

    452.

    Now you'll have to explain to us not only why is 451 funny, but also why is 452 funnier.

    System Shock Remake videos

    20 Minutes of new footage from Medical Level here:



    Been a while since the playable demo so I couldn't say for sure what's changed, but it looks nice at least.

    RPS post here: https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/201...-in-new-video/

    edit: couldn't find a suitable thread for this but on second viewing it probably could've been included in this one. Any mods wanna move it over for me?

    Can't really complain about it overall, but I'm a bit disappointed by the removal of some of the lens flaring and little animations of the hacker picking up and inspecting new gear. The game seems less special being just like all other games that give you things to collect.

    They teased going into the area that ended the first demo, but then the play through went to a lot of other areas like the radiation trench. That looks fantastic.

    I'm OK with the removals. It's still a bit too blingy for my taste, I hope we'll be able to tone down some of the bloom and shine. I think they are doing a good job of preserving the original level geometry, but somehow at the same time making it feel a little less claustrophobic and a lot more real.

    Looks good. I'm feeling better about the reboot than SS3.
