It's been on my "list to finish" for 6 or 8 months now. I bought it last year during some sale, snagged it with the sequel for $10 or some crazy cheap price. I think I'm one or two quests from the end, but then some new shiny game came out and I don't remember why I never picked it back up yet lol.
The original? First and second were one of my favorite games. The second was a vast improvement over the first, though.
Yes, the original. At the same time they released Fallout 2 for, I think, five dollars. I didn't bite though. Both games were repackaged to work on WinXP/Vista/7. The only reason I tried it was that our paper and pencil RPG group started playing the Fallout RPG on occasion, and I was the only one not familiar with the theme.
Getting a bit OT: Anybody get in on the Kickstarter projects for either Wasteland 2 or Shadowrun Returns? I'm too young to have played the original Wasteland, but the info I could find got me hooked enough to buy into the project for a sequel. The post-apoc atmostphere/theme seems similar to Borderlands which is why I mention it. I did get the chance to play a few of the original Shadowrun games as a kid though, and am definitely excited to see that one when it finishes.
Oh yeah. They made a shadowrun game kinda recently, but it was basically a deathmatch FPS. No single player at all. I was disappoint.
The devs doing the new one actually apologized for the last abysmal game that came out under the franchise. The franchise ownership has changed hands so many times. This new one is the original franchise creators now re-licensing their own work (from Microsoft, I think, who owns it now) to create this game.
